“Sorry seems to be the hardest word”


by Elton John

What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you’re not there
What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it’s all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad
It’s a sad, sad situation
And it’s getting more and more absurd
It’s sad, so sad
Why can’t we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word.

“Blue touches blue” by Noa


Blue touches blue
Touches grey touches brown
I look down at my feet, theyve been with me for years
I take one step for you and then two for myself
Oh, I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue
Touches black, then expands
All the tears and the years in the palm of my hand
Do you think you can tell me whats wrong and whats wronger?
I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

I want to twist in your arms
Like a snake thats been charmed
Like a baby newborn with his arms groping out
I would shout but theres always a song and
I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue

I look down at my feet

I take one step for you

I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue
Touches gray, frothy white
Where my face is all blurred and reflecting the night
If I tell you I feel like a bird in the cold
And I need you to hold me?
I need you to hold me

Blue touches blue…

“Something” by Beatles


da Abbey Road 1969

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me

I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me

Don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe her now

You’re asking me will my love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me

Don’t want to leave her now

“Desert Rose”


Cheb Mami Introduction (Moroccan Arabic):]
Hadaee mada tawila
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
Wa ana nahos ana wahala ghzalti
[English:]
Oh night oh night
It has been a long time
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one
And I am looking for myself and my loved one

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

[Cheb Mami (Moroccan Arabic):]
Aman aman aman
Omry feek antia
Ma ghair antia
Ma ghair antia
[English:]
Aman aman aman
My life is for you
And no one other than you
And no one other than you

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall

[Cheb Mami (Moroccan Arabic):]
Ya lili ah ya leel
[English:]
Oh night oh night

“But beautiful”


by Burke and Van Heusen – 1947

Love is funny or it’s sad
Or it’s quiet or it’s mad
It’s a good thing or it’s bad
But beautiful

Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall
And I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind at all

Love is tearful or it’s gay
It’s a problem or it’s play
It’s a heartache either way
But beautiful

And I’m thinking if you were mine, I’d never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know.

<instrumental>

Love is tearful or it’s gay
It’s a problem or it’s play
It’s a heartache either way
But it’s beautiful

And I’m thinking if you were mine, I’d never let you go
And that would be but beautiful, I know
