Pete & The Pirates – Half Moon Street Lyrics

Come and meet me tomorrow
Come with all your silver and our gold
Egyptian night lady
Come and meet me tomorrow
Come with all your silver and our gold
Egyptian night lady
You don’t seem like you do what you’ve been told
And why won’t you speak now
Tying string between tin cans and pulling them tight
Well I’m only asking
Did the cat get your tongue when you slept last night? From here to my window
There are cracks in the walls that I can’t mend
I’ll meet you on Half Moon Street
With someone else’s money that we can spend
My thoughts are tearing each other apart
In the back of the car
Conversations probably gone too far
You keep me guessing
Tongue tied and messy
Don’t make me feel stupid
I’ll do that on my own
Put the key in and just start believing
That your going to hell and you have fun deceiving
Come to me telling me all kinds of secrets
Promises promised I think I can keep it
I’ve seen photos of you
I know we’ve got nothing in common now
Just our shared love of drinking
But you won’t take a life and that’s not me
I’ll meet you on Half Moon Street
I’ll be watching your mouth move when you talk
And all of those noises
Well they really mean nothing to me at all
My thoughts are tearing each other apart
In the back of the car
Conversations probably gone too far
You keep me guessing
Tongue ties and messy
Don’t make me feel stupid
I’ll do that on my own
Put the key in and just start believing
That your going to hell and you have fun deceiving
Come to me telling all me kinds of secrets
Promises promised I think I can keep it
Come and meet me tomorrow
Come with all your silver and your gold
And all of your money
It really means nothing to me at all
I’ll meet you on Half Moon Street
I’ll be watching your mouth move when you talk
And oh it’s just noises
They really mean nothing to me at all
My thoughts are tearing each other apart
In the back of the car
Conversations probably gone too far
You keep me guessing
Tongue tied and messy
Don’t make me feel stupid
I’ll do that on my own
Put the key in and just start believing
That your going to hell and you have fun deceiving
Come to me telling me all kinds of secrets
Promises promised I think I can keep it

Juliette Reilly – One More Day Lyrics

I’ve been sinking too long
Every breath comes out wrong
I think I’m fading
Maybe I’m just tired
My love is unforgiving
You shape a live worth living
And we’re in far too deep
The currents pull me underneath now
I don’t recognize my own reflection
Wearing your skin over me for my protection
Protection
I look for signs of land
Or just someone who understands
I’m drowning in the wreckage
Of my ship that still decays
Trying to stay alive for one more day
I pushed away, you got through
It’s not your fault I’ve been used
No one can rescue me, not even you
Not even you
And it still surrounds me
The footsteps on the ground
We kill for fleeting happiness
A certain death, no self respect
And I don’t recognize my own reflection
Wearing your skin over me for my protection
Protection
I look for signs of land
Or just someone who understands
I’m drowning in the wreckage
Of my ship that still decays
Trying to stay alive for one more day
One more day
One more day
One more day
It’s all you need
I will point you in the right direction
Hold my hand over yours for your protection
Protection
We look for signs of land
Or just someone who understands
We’re all drowning in the wreckage
Of the ship that still decays
Trying to stay alive for one more day
One more day
One more day
One more day
It’s all you need
It’s all you need
We’re all just trying to stay alive
‘Till what it takes to satisfy
We’re all just trying to survive
To survive
We’re all just trying to stay alive
‘Till what it takes to satisfy
We’re all just trying to survive
To survive
I’ve been sinking too long
Every breath comes out wrong
I think I’m fading
Maybe I’m just tired

Juliette Greco – La Cuisine Lyrics

Les celles qui f’saient florès
En robe de Dior et sac d’Hermès
Rangées dans l’ musée Grévin
Du ciné-club ou de Sam Levin
Regrettent au temps joli
Du poivre et sel et du bigoudi
De ne pas avoir appris
La cuisine
Qui retient les petits maris
Qui s’ débinent
Les celles qui font florès
En vison sport et Mercedès
Rejoindront aux cinémathèques
Musidora et le fils du Cheik
Mais regretteront pardi
Au temps du flash-back en bigoudis
De ne pas avoir appris
La cuisine
Qui retient les petits maris
Qui s’ débinent
Les celles qui font joujou
En bas rouge vif et scoubidous
À leur tour feront florès
En cosmoscope ou Vadim-express
Puis viendra le temps mignon
Du poivre et sel et du mironton
Celles-là auront appris
La cuisine
Qui retient les petits maris
Qui s’ débinent
Mais celles qui f’saient florès
En robe de Dior et sac d’Hermès
Et qui depuis font gémir
Le corset d’ fer, sous l’ pull en cachemire
Plutôt que d’ faire des pâtés
Sur leurs cartes d’identité
Pour ret’nir l’amant joli
Qui s’ débine
Vont apprendre dès aujourd’hui
La cuisine !

Lost Society – Wasted After Midnight Lyrics

Shot!! Shot! Why do you do this to me alcohol?! Shot! Is it worth is after all, yes
What’s the point of it all
This is my habit, can’t stop just gotta have it
Hah! This monster is taking over me
Shot! Shot! Let’s take this over! Making me show my own brutality
Shot! Let’s go, uh! I’m coming there, destination I don’t care
I’ve lost the last of my luck and I’ve lost my will to give a f*ck hahaha
(Burp)
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Oh no I guess it’s time to say my last goodbyes
Open my eyes and see what I woke up next to this time
Now I know I really can’t get any lower
Until the next time I say, hey guys! Blackout, pass out
I don’t care what you do, just keep ‘em coming or I’ll come after you! Wasted! The big F is looking kinda small
Shot! Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Crawling into another bed at night
Oh once again I’m wasted out of my f*cking mind
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Wasted after midnight
Once again I took this one, inch too far
Cocked and loaded in the wrong way my only memory is a scar
But I’m fine as long I got myself intact
But you know when you’re really shit outta luck when all you can scream is Jesus f*ck! Shot!

Discordance Axis – Jigsaw Lyrics

Fell short at once so you tried another
But I can’t live up to your dreams
Start from the outside find the edges
Look for patterns in the seams
Some pieces fit together wrong
Remaining parts seem to fit nowhere
But you can force my teeth together
If you think that it will make you happy
I can see you’ve grown tired of this game
So swipe me back into the box

Sergio Caputo – Mercy Bocu’ Lyrics

Bello capitarci senza te
Faccio il milionario, mi destreggio uno sgabello come Fred Astaire
Ordino una guinness per la prima manche
Forse sono triste ma il mio cuore non lo sa
Non vederti più…
Farci una risata su
Non vederti più
Già dimenticata, pure tu
Alla fine quasi tutti sanno tutto, sempre così…
Conviene alzare i tacchi via di qui…
Pago il conto ed esco fuori per la strada, mercy bocù
Un’orchestra di gatti sta provando l’ouverture
La mia stella da spettacolo lassù
Mercy bocù…
Mercy bocù… La tua storia lascia un po’ a desiderare, fermo un tassì
Guastarti la serata no, non è chic
Confidarmi col tassista mi diverte molto di più
“Mi lasci pure all’angolo e diamoci del tu
La vita è bella, ciao, Mercy bocù”
Guardo le vetrine piene di bigiotteria
Scarpe parigine, reggicalze, campionari di tappezzeria
Lì c’è un manichino che somiglia a te
Sfoggia un tayeurino giallo senape
Non vederti più
Farci una risata su
Non vederti più
Già dimenticata, pure tu
Uno stock di Giapponesi mi travolge, me, e la mia verve
E sparisce tra le fauci di un hotel
L’ottimismo ricomincia a pilotarmi per la città
Un’insegna verde menta mi promette un whisky bar
Un juke-box sussurra: “Wasciù-wariu-và”
Quante signorine!

Jards Macale – Dona De Castelo Lyrics

Amor perfeito
Amor quase perfeito
Amor de perdição
Paixão que cobre todo o meu pobre peito pela vida afora
Vou-me embora embramadora
Você pra mim agora passa como jogadora
Sem graça nem surpresa
Diga que perdi a cabeça
Se me levantar da mesa e partir
Antes do final do jogo
Louco seria prosseguir essa partida
Peça falsa que se enraíza
E faz negro todo o meu desejo pela vida afora
Vou-me embora embromadora
E quando eu saltar de banda
E quando eu saltar de lado
Vou desabar seu castelo de cartas marcadas
E tramas variadas
Sim, seu castelo de baralho vai se desmanchar
Desmantelado
Decifrado
Sobre o borralho da sarjeta
Chegou o inverno

Lacraps – Le Dicton Dit Lyrics

J’vais leur faire comprendre l’expression “à cœur vaillant rien d’impossible”
J’fais moi-même ma promo, j’écris, j’pose, j’fais mes clips
En guerre contre le chrono, je n’fais que bosser mes titres
Dis-toi que j’viens pas créer d’buzz ou bien même d’agitation
Et tant pis si pour certains l’rap n’est qu’une minable distraction
J’ai beau cracher des centaines de proverbes, des milliards d’citations
Je sais que la peur de l’homme n’a d’égal que son imagination Pose-toi les bonnes questions
Et oublie tous ces médias qui n’ont qu’un but : semer la peur
L’art de la guerre, c’est celui de tromper ses ennemies
Oui c’est l’Sheïtan qui vient chez toi t’faire enchaîner cess et demi
J’serai jamais dépressif, même en chien mec j’essaie de rire
Mais si les meilleurs partent les premiers, les pires vont pas cesser de vivre
A 27 piges voyons, ça veut dire quoi, que j’suis un fossile? Le dicton dit “Tout vient à point à qui sait attendre”
Moi j’dis que rester dans ton coin reviendrait à viser ta tempe
Combien trouvent le biz’ épatant? Ouais c’est la vie, c’est la nôtre
On va tous payer nos fautes et Dieu va fixer la note
Prendre des risques et voler, depuis peu fils c’est la norme
Tous rêvent de billets violets Et maintenant le X c’est la mode
Et on revient pas en arrière, non ce qui est fait est fait
Si j’kiffe kicker autant te demander XXX me fait effet
Un silence pour tous ceux partis
Des incompétents nous dirigent j’te demande pas qui en fait les frais
Et à part Dieu rien ne m’effraie mais rien d’étrange si j’rêve de sous
J’en ai besoin pour vivre, pour pas finir au 36ème dessous
Toujours les mêmes aux manettes, bien sûr que j’ai grillé leur manège
Au mic’ j’viens crier mon mal être et ça même si ils restent sourd
Les plus fous sont pas ce que tu crois, méfie-toi de l’eau qui dort
D’nos jours tu crèves pour une clope , pas besoin d’un lo-ki d’or
Les mecs s’terminent à coups d’low kick, gore est l’époque
Et frère c’est bel et bien fini le temps où on faisait croquer les potes
Il n’y a pas que le loup qui mord, l’homme est un prédateur
A croire que certains n’ont pour but que d’défier le Créateur
Tu veux savoir si t’as la foi? Combien dealent des tas d’grammes de cess? Et sur 10 lascars de té-c’ combien rêvent de bif’ et partent en

Hong Kong passes anthem law on Tiananmen anniversary

It’s free. This story was reported by The Associated Press.

China’s ceremonial legislature last month ratified a decision to impose national security laws on Hong Kong, circumventing the city’s legislature and shocking many of its 7.5 million residents.Police said they made arrests in the city’s Mongkok district, where large crowds also rallied. (8:09 a.m. Leung said afterward. On Twitter, they urged people not to gather in groups because of the coronavirus.As has become customary, many dissidents were placed under house arrest and their communications with the outside world cut off, according to rights groups. doing the same in Hong Kong.”The legislation was approved after pro-democracy opposition lawmakers tried to disrupt the vote. 2 on the government’s most-wanted list following the Tiananmen Square crackdown.Hundreds, possibly thousands of people were killed when tanks and troops moved in on the night of June 3-4, 1989, to break up weeks of student-led protests that had spread to other cities and were seen as a threat to Communist Party rule.“The Chinese Communists want us all to forget about what happened 31 years ago,” Mr. Those found guilty of intentionally abusing the “March of the Volunteers” face up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 50,000 Hong Kong dollars ($6,450).Debate over the legislative was later suspended after pro-democracy lawmakers staged a protest, with one dropping a pot of pungent liquid in the chamber.

Hong Kong
Hong Kong’s legislature approved a contentious bill on Thursday that makes it illegal to insult the Chinese national anthem.Thursday’s vote coincided with the 31st anniversary of China’s bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protests in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. EDT). Hong Kong passes anthem law on Tiananmen anniversary

On the 31st anniversary of Beijing’s Tiananmen crackdown on the student-led pro-democracy movement, Hong Kong legislature approved a law that makes it illegal to insult or abuse the Chinese national anthem. 

Vincent Yu/AP

Pan-democratic legislators in Hong Kong observe one minute of silence for the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen crackdown before a debate over the national anthem bill on June 4, 2020. The chamber was evacuated and police and firemen were called in to investigate the incident.When the meeting resumed, pro-democracy lawmaker Ted Hui again splashed some liquid at the front of the meeting room and was escorted out.The president of Hong Kong’s legislature, Andrew Leung, called such behavior irresponsible and childish. It passed with 41 lawmakers voting for it and just one voting against. When security guards tried to stop him, he dropped the lantern and the pot, and was ejected from the meeting. Many chanted “Democracy now”and “Stand for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.”
Despite furor, accountability lags for police. FIFA later fined the Hong Kong Football Association over the incident.U.S. Beijing is taking a tougher stance following months of anti-government protests last year, in what activists see as an accelerating erosion of the city’s rights and liberties.Despite the police ban, crowds poured into Victoria Park to light candles and observed a minute of silence at 8:09 p.m. Raising a sign that said “A murderous regime stinks for ten thousand years,” lawmaker Ray Chan walked to the front with the pot hidden inside a Chinese paper lantern. Before the debate began, pro-democracy lawmakers stood in silence to mark the anniversary and put signs on their desks saying, “Do not forget June 4, the hearts of the people will not die.”With democracy all but snuffed out in mainland China, the focus has shifted increasingly to Hong Kong, where authorities banned   the annual vigil that remembers victims of the 1989 crackdown. Critics said the shortened debate allowed the bill to be pushed through.”I have not cut short the meeting, I have not pushed through the bill,” Mr. The bill passed, making it illegal to insult the Chinese anthem. Wu’er told the AP in Taiwan, where he now resides. He cut short the debate because of the suspension and called for the vote. “But it is the Chinese government themselves reminding the whole world that they are the same government … “I have told members that I have scheduled 30 hours [to debate the bill] so we just work according to the schedule.”The contentious debate over the bill comes after China’s ceremonial national legislature formally approved a decision last week to enact a national security law for Hong Kong that could see Chinese security agents posted in the city.The national security law is aimed at curbing subversive activity, with Beijing pushing for it after a monthslong pro-democracy protest movement at times saw violent clashes between police and protesters.Opponents of the anthem law and national security law see them as signs of Beijing’s tightening control over the territory.While experts have warned that the security law could imperil Hong Kong’s status as one of the world’s best places to do business, at least two banks with a strong Asian presence have publicly backed the decision.HSBC said in a Chinese social media post that it “respects and supports all laws that stabilize Hong Kong’s social order,” while Standard Chartered said it believed the national security law would “help maintain the long-term economic and social stability of Hong Kong.”Beijing began pushing for the anthem law after Hong Kong soccer fans jeered the national anthem at international matches in 2015.As anti-government protests engulfed Hong Kong last year, thousands of fans booed loudly and turned their backs when the anthem was played at a World Cup qualifier match against Iran in September. Thousands of people in Hong Kong defied a police ban Thursday evening, breaking through barricades to hold a candlelight vigil.Police cited the need for social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak and barricaded sprawling Victoria Park to prevent people from gathering there. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted criticism of China and Hong Kong for banning the vigil earlier this week before meeting with a group of Tiananmen Square survivors at the State Department.The cancellation of the vigil came amid a tightening of Beijing’s grip over Hong Kong. Here’s why it might change.”If we don’t come out today, we don’t even know if we can still come out next year,” said participant Serena Cheung.While police played recordings warning people not to participate in the unauthorized gathering, they did little to stop people from entering the park.The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic and Democratic Movements of China that organizes the annual vigil called on people to light candles at 8 p.m. When several protesters tried to block a road, officers rushed to detain them, using pepper spray and raising a blue flag to warn them to disperse or they would use force on the unauthorized gathering.

In India’s slums, neighbors unite against a pandemic

Despite furor, accountability lags for police. But they lack the resources to provide for everyone and often must filter out the needy from the neediest.Each day the slum’s poorest – often migrant workers originally from elsewhere in the country – line the main street waiting for food handouts from Dharavi Diary and other volunteers, groups, and government agencies.India’s poor – in Dharavi and the rest of India – have born the brunt of the nationwide lockdown, which finally began to ease this week. So you can imagine how tough it is to practice social distancing,” Mr. Hardly anyone has a private bathroom.Without reliable running water, the most worrying concern is sanitation. He knew better than to wait for help.The 31-year-old student and community activist hounded government helplines trying to get authorities to quarantine the neighbor’s family. Dharavi has more than 1,800 confirmed coronavirus cases, and it falls largely to neighbors to ensure quarantine of those infected. Kanase would watch as health workers scrambled to stem the outbreak, suiting up to disinfect the squalid lanes and flying drones over the shantytown to surveil people’s movements.Dharavi has had more than 1,800 confirmed coronavirus cases, and is among Mumbai’s most affected pockets.The caseload in the city known for Bollywood and the country’s most important stock exchange stood at more than 41,000 on Thursday, and has overwhelmed the under-funded health system.Mumbai and elsewhere in Maharashtra state in central India account for the largest share of the country’s more than 210,000 confirmed infections, of which more than 104,000 have recovered. Unable to get through, he tweeted at the Mumbai police, who quickly came to take the man’s family to a quarantine center.“I used to teach his two children and felt good for the family since they were relatively safer now,” he said from the tiny two-room apartment he shares with his parents and younger brother. Families or groups of migrant workers often pile into a single room. But epidemiologists say India is still weeks away from peak coronavirus transmission.Dharavi is known to the world as the setting of the 2008 Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire.” Set between busy train tracks and the heavily polluted Mithi River, which separates the slum from Mumbai’s modern skyscrapers, the neighborhood is a maze of tiny alleys, each one full of scores of people, many living in tin shacks. Kanase and his team at Dharavi Diary, a group of young leaders who work to improve conditions in the slum, have been working to help those affected by the pandemic, handing out bags of rice, flour, cooking oil, and sugar – enough to feed a family for two weeks. Dighavkar said.Mr. He was unsuccessful and no one ever came to test or isolate the six other members of the woman’s household.Mr. Everyone knows when an alcoholic husband turns violent, when children are scolded, or when a family has its television turned up too loud.So, news that someone had been hospitalized with the new coronavirus rocketed through the 1 square mile that is home to around a million of Mumbai’s poorest residents.Born and bred in Dharavi, Kunal Kanase watched authorities ignore everyday disasters, like overflowing sewers and domestic violence. The neighborhood was able to avoid another disaster this week when it was spared damage from a cyclone that hit the city.Kiran Dighavkar, a Mumbai official who is overseeing medical workers and volunteers in Dharavi, said his staff is focused on cleaning the neighborhood’s 500 toilet complexes. Kanase is among many unsung heroes working to protect some of India’s most vulnerable people from the ravages of the coronavirus and the economically devastating nationwide lockdown that has left millions unable to feed themselves.When a woman who lives just two houses – less than 10 feet away – from Mr. Rajanish Kakade/AP

Kohima, India
There are no secrets in the tightly packed lanes of Dharavi, India’s largest slum. Here’s why it might change.Mr. Each is visited by at least 1,000 people a day.“These people have to come out twice a day, for food and to use the toilets. Loading… India has recorded about 6,000 deaths.The rate of infection and the loss of life have been relatively small compared to the United States, United Kingdom, and other hard-hit countries. Many migrant workers fled cities for their native villages in the countryside rather than risk starvation, sometimes walking for hundreds of miles.For Mr. Kanase, the pandemic has highlighted how even in hardship this tightly knit community can come together to aid each other.“I live in Dharavi and I am proud of it,” he said. In India’s slums, neighbors unite against a pandemic

In Dharavi, Mumbai, home to a million people in one square mile, young community leaders have been stepping up to help those affected by the coronavirus. Kanase became sick with COVID-19, he once again tried to notify authorities.

How pandemic shifted meaning of a government’s ‘soft power’

Get the Monitor Stories you care about delivered to your inbox.
For that to sustain itself, however, especially with the immediate threat being seen as having passed, “soft power” connections may prove even more important.Editor’s note: As a public service,   all our coronavirus coverage   is free. No paywall.
But so was public receptiveness and active participation and support in executing the strategy.New Zealand’s prime minister has been praised for providing direction, clarity, and empathy. But it has highlighted success elsewhere: Taiwan, New Zealand, and Hong Kong; southern European countries like Greece and Portugal; Washington state in the U.S.It is not the only explanation for success. Capturing the sense of cohesion in fighting the pandemic, Taiwanese Health Minister Chen Shih-chung late last month led hundreds of people who had gathered at a beach resort in chants of “We’re Taiwan!” The crowd responded: “We are proud!”Elsewhere, the message may have been less explicit. Despite furor, accountability lags for police. It draws on mutual trust, a shared sense of responsibility, and civic commitment.The measure has cast a harsh light on some countries’ efforts. It draws on fellow-feeling, mutual trust, a shared sense of responsibility, civic commitment and pride. But the cooperative spirit has been no less important. Though politically at odds with Beijing, which has vowed to “reunify” it with the mainland, the island receives nearly 3 million Chinese visitors annually. In Greece and Portugal, leaders and public health officials have also shone. Here’s why it might change.Amid the violent confrontations in the United States over recent days, it has been coming under enormous strain.And it is proving a critical asset in the ongoing challenge of the pandemic, as nations around the world seek popular buy-in for drastic restrictions on economic activity and other aspects of everyday life to help contain the virus.It’s a measure that has cast a harsh light on some countries’ efforts to limit the numbers of COVID victims. London
“Soft power” has long been part of the diplomatic toolbox in international affairs. And with the immediate threat being seen as having passed, “soft power” connections may prove even more important. Yet so far, it has had fewer than 500 cases, with only seven lives lost.Like in other countries that have managed to limit COVID-19’s spread, effective public policy and public health measures were indispensable. Yet there is a compelling “soft power” pattern in places where, at least so far, the battle is being won – all the more striking because the pandemic came at a time when politics in many countries have become more fractious and volatile.Taiwan, which sits just 80 miles from China, was on the front line when the coronavirus began spreading from the Chinese city of Wuhan late last year. In the case of soft power, it’s broadening to include a sense of civic strength – the kind seen in countries that moved quickly to confront COVID-19. It’s the connective tissue of community.

A couple stand in front of the Love sculpture, inspired by the iconic design by American artist Robert Indiana, in Taipei, Taiwan, May 30, 2020. Whether in providing protective equipment, sourcing and almost universally wearing face masks, tracking cases, even helping the residents of migrant hostels, the lead was taken by the people themselves – acting through the internet and social network connections established during the months of protest.Elsewhere, governments remain the principal actors. In Greece and Portugal – both only recently emerging from the effects of the world economic crash of 2008 – individual ministers and public health officials have also shone. But the popular buy-in to measures announced in all three countries were crucially important. More than a million Taiwanese live or work in China. )

Even more than Taiwan, it might have been expected to suffer hugely from the pandemic – not just because of the volume of traffic with mainland China, but because its 7 million people are nearly as densely packed as in New York City. Practical steps have been key, including early response, clear messaging, and testing and tracking. Yet there is a compelling “soft power” pattern.In Taiwan, effective public policy was indispensable. In New Zealand, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been praised for providing direction, clarity, and empathy in locking down the country before COVID began to spread. But so was the “soft power” component: public receptiveness, as well as active participation and support in making sure the strategy worked.In Taiwan’s case, a shared identity has been strengthened in opposition to Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s public calls for reunification and his declaration last year that Beijing would not renounce the use of force, if necessary, to achieve it. But the popular buy-in to measures in all three countries were crucial. To date, it has had barely a thousand COVID cases, and only four lives lost.This is despite a halting response by the city’s government, which had no concerted strategy to deal with shortages of protective gear, for instance, and at one point discouraged people from wearing face masks. And in most countries that have been fighting back COVID-19, a reopening is now underway.

Carly Rae Jepsen – Solo Lyrics

You shine bright by yourself dancing solo

You let go, she moved on
A thousand stories before
You felt it, then lost it
You’re lonely, your heart aches
But get yourself off the floor
I can’t stand to see you crying
[Chorus]
So what you’re not in love? Don’t go wasting your nights getting so low
So what you’re not in love? Don’t go wasting your nights getting so low
So what you’re not in love? Don’t go wasting your nights getting so low
So what you’re not in love? You shine bright by yourself dancing solo You shine bright by yourself dancing solo

It looks nice from the outside
When they all got the perfect guy

But your fears got it all wrong
That he’s right and there’s something wrong
‘Cause I swear, you’ll be alright (Alright, ah, ah, ah)

A thousand stories before
You felt it, then lost it
You’re lonely, your heart aches
But get yourself off the floor
I can’t stand to see you crying

So what you’re not in love? [Verse 1]
And I know what it feels like
To be alone on a cold night
No one you   can   hold tight (Hold   tight, ah, ah, ah)
And I’m not   trying to play it down
But it’s all gonna turn around
And   I   swear   it’ll be alright   (Alright, ah, ah,   ah)

You let go, she moved on
A thousand stories before
You felt it, then lost it
You’re lonely, your heart aches

So what you’re not in love?

Is   it a lie? Is   it a lie? What does   it   mean? Fight back the urge
What it if worth

That you’re too f*cking close to me
Push you away so you can see

When it’s all said and done

J’traîne ma peine comme tous ces mélancoliques anonymes
J’ai la vingtaine mais j’suis triste dans un Merco-Benz
Surtout quand j’pense à toi avec un autre
Mes projets tombent à l’eau
Pourtant t’sais bien qu’y a pas d’homme qui fait mieux, oh no
J’ai la liasse, qu’est ce qui t’faut d’autre?
