Drought Over

Queen – Who wants to live forever

There’s no time for us
There’s no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
yet slips away from us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever

There’s no chance for us
It’s all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment
set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Who dares to love forever
When love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips

And we can have forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway

we‘re all dying to live

Staying Home

Rich Aucoin – It

Destiny, New York, has got you sad
for all the times you said you wished you had.
To go and leave this town is what you said
for fear has left your dreams and faith for dead.

And my dear LA, LA has got you down
for all the plans you said you thought you‘d found
two naked girls and all them paper scraps
dreams of blood and notes and times of lust

We let them hold you down
We live in times of doubt
we let them hold you now

GO mal for it !

I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather, that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze, than it should be stifled by dryrot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
(Jack London)

Ich will lieber Asche sein, als Staub!
Ich will lieber,
daß mein Lebensfunke sich ausbrennt in einer hellen Flamme,
als daß er in Fäulnis erstickt.
Ich will lieber ein prächtiger Meteor sein
der in all seinen Atomen zugleich verglüht,
als ein langlebiger verschlafener Planet.
Der Mensch ist gemacht, damit er lebt; nicht damit er existiert.
Ich werde meine Tage nicht damit vergeuden, daß ich sie zu verlängern suche.
Ich werde meine Zeit gebrauchen.
(Übersetzung: Martin M. Driessen auf www.jack-london.org)

Toast this life

lighting the lamp

Alexander Keith’s „Frozen Pub“ commercial: Toast this Life
written by Grayson Matthews featuring singer Andrew Austin
(Thanks to Samuel for finding out the name of the song)

Tried to find out the lyrics
(as I am not a native speaker, thanks for every notice concerning the right lyrics):

To start it off to say the things unsaid
we toast this life
we break and share this bread
at least we know we‘ll never be alone

Yeah, we got these bones
all here in one place
we weather every storm
we bend but never break
and we‘ll be singing
oohhohhoohhh oohhh oooh oh

Come inside and rest your weary head
it’s the coldest night
here the fire is burning red
we take this boat
and steer it through the storm
ooooooohhh oooohhh

When daylight comes we‚re singing our song
we march these streets and carry on
where common ground is all these feet have known Weiterlesen
