Sometimes it snows in April, Prince

Sometimes It Snows in April, Prince

 


Am 24. April 2016 schneit es im Westerwald (3 Tage nach Prince’s Ablebern)

Songtext, Lyrics: Prince, Sometimes it snows in April

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,
just after I’d wiped away his last tear
I guess he’s better off than he was before,
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don’t pass u every day
I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because I wanted to see him again,
But sometimes sometimes life ain’t always the way…

 

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
and all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
A time 4 lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy’s tears
Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
He used 2 say so strong unafraid to die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture I realized
No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad
Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy’s there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he’s found the answer 2 all the April snow
Maybe one day I’ll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
But all good things, they say, never last

All good things they say, never last
And love, it isn’t love until it’s past

Cro, Hey Girl, Official Video, Songtext

… Ich mag dich so wie du bist
Und egal was du gerne wärst
Ich bin auf jeden Fall der Typ der es diggt

Egal… egal…

 

Lyrics:

Ey wärst du Kellerin dann wär ich nur in Bars
Und wärst du ein Dealer hätt‘ ich jede Menge Gras
Wärst du ne Tablette müsst ich jeden Tag zum Arzt
Und wärst du schlechte Laune wär ich jeden Tag am Arsch
Wärst du eine Kippe würd ich ständig eine rauchen
Und müsst ich dazu raus besteht mein Leben nur aus Pausen
Und wärst du meine Couch würd ich nie wieder nach draußen
Und wärst du Teleshopping würd ich alles bei dir kaufen
Und wärst du ein Geburtstag wär ich sicherlich ein Clown
Wärst du Langeweile ständ ich gerne mal im Stau
Und wärst du ein Verbrechen säß ich längst schon im Bau
Und ich glaub wenn du auf Mädchen ständest wär ich eine Frau
Und wärst du eine Stadt dann auf jeden Fall New York
Wärst du ne Stewardess säß ich jeden Tag an Bord
Wärst du ’n BMX stünd‘ in meinem Kalender Sport
Und wärst du Religion wär ich Dicke mit dem Lord

Hey Girl, ich will nur dass du weißt
Ich mag dich so wie du bist
Und egal was du gerne wärst
Ich bin auf jeden Fall der Typ der es diggt

Hey Girl, ich will nur dass du weißt
Ich mag dich so wie du bist
Und egal was du gerne wärst
Ich bin auf jeden Fall der Typ der es diggt

Ey wenn du willst werd‘ verrückt so wie Shady’s Wife
Und wärst du Bonnie wär ich Clyde, was für ’n crazy life
Und wärst du heute in nem Club wäre Ladies‘ Night
Wärst du ne Dauerwelle fände ich die Eighties nice
Wärst du ne Arie dann wär das hier kein Sprechgesang
Wärst du mein Hobby dann wär es das was ich am besten kann
Und wärst du Selbstmord wäre ich als Nächster dran
Wärst du das Rotlichmilieu häng ich im Wohnviertel ab
Wärst du ’n Porno ja dann hätte ich nen Oberlippenbart
Wärst du Dekadenz wär ich der, der große Schlitten mag
Und wärst du Fast Food hätte ich jetzt so nen dicken Arsch
(Ah) Wärst du ein Leck dann würd ich sinken
Wärst du Eigenlob würd ich bitterböse stinken
Wärst du das große Meer dann würd ich fürchterlich ertrinken
Und egal wie klein du wärst ich würd dich irgendwann mal finden

Hey Girl, ich will nur dass du weißt
Ich mag dich so wie du bist
Und egal was du gerne wärst
Ich bin auf jeden Fall der Typ der es diggt

Hey Girl, ich will nur dass du weißt
Ich mag dich so wie du bist
Und egal was du gerne wärst
Ich bin auf jeden Fall der Typ der es diggt

Egal… egal…

U2 – Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of, Lyrics, Clip, Background


Stuck in a moment, Video Version 2


Video for a song by U2 ‚Stuck In A Moment You Can’t Get Out Of‘ from ‚All That You Can Leave Behind‘ album, 2001

 

Lyrics:
I’m not afraid
Of anything in this world
There’s nothing you can throw at me
That I haven’t already heard

I’m just tryin‘ to find
A decent melody
A song that I can sing
In my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
‚Cause tears are going nowhere, baby

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake
The colors that you bring
The nights you filled with fireworks
They, they left you with nothing

I am still enchanted
By the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears
Through your eyes I can see

You are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it’s tough and you can never get enough
Of what you don’t really need now, my, oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

Oh love, look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm ‚til you discover how deep
I wasn’t jumping, for me it was a fall
It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along on this stony pass

And if, and if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along this stony pass

It’s just a moment
This time will pass

Hintergrund bzw. Inspiration by Wikipedia:
Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

„Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of“ is the second single from U2’s 2000 album, All That You Can’t Leave Behind. The song won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 2002. Bono has said the song was inspired by a fictional conversation with his friend Michael Hutchence about suicide.

Writing and composition

„Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of“ emerged while The Edge was working on a gospel-influenced chord progression on the piano.[1]

U2’s lead singer Bono wrote the song about the suicide of his close friend Michael Hutchence, lead singer of the band INXS. The song is written in the form of an argument about suicide in which Bono tries to convince Hutchence of the act’s foolishness.[2]

The song structure is reminiscent of „Sexual Healing“ by Marvin Gaye. Bono characterized the song as a fight between friends, which he felt guilty for never having with Hutchence. As Bono said in 2005, „It’s a row between mates. You’re kinda trying to wake them up out of an idea. In my case it’s a row I didn’t have while he was alive. I feel the biggest respect I could pay to him was not to write some stupid soppy song, so I wrote a really tough, nasty little number, slapping him around the head. And I’m sorry, but that’s how it came out of me.“[3]

Mick Jagger and his daughter Elizabeth recorded backing vocals for the song, although these did not make the final mix.[4]
Music videos

Two music videos were filmed for the song.

One is directed by Joseph Kahn, features an American football game between the „Flys“ [sic] and the „Lemons“ filmed at the Houston Astrodome, and contains various inside jokes and references to the band’s past, such as the team names themselves – which were the titles of two U2 singles released in the ’90s. The video features a brief cameo in the beginning from John Madden, whose lines also feature several U2 references. The main part of the video shows a placekicker named Paul Hewson—Bono’s real name—forced to re-live a field goal he missed that cost his team the game.

The other video, directed by Kevin Godley, shows Bono being thrown out of a van several times, as if „stuck in a moment“. At the end of the video, the rest of the band helps him up.

 

Sinngemäße Deutsche Übersetzung des Songtextes:
Stuck In A Moment – Du steckst nur in einem Moment fest, aus dem Du nicht raus kommst
Ich hab keine Angst mehr.
Du kannst mir auch nichts mehr um die Ohren hauen,
was ich nicht schon von Dir gehört hätte.
Ich suche nur nach dem richtigen Weg und den richtigen Worten.
Nach der richtigen Melodie, damit ich mir das selber vorsingen kann,
wenn Du so willst.
Ich hab Dich nie für dumm gehalten. Aber Liebling, schau Dich mal an.
Du musst jetzt aufrecht bleiben, Du musst jetzt Deine ureigenste Last tragen.
Und deine Tränen helfen Dir dabei gar nichts.

Hab jetzt bitte nicht die Angst, dass ich Dich oder unsere Liebe vergessen hätte,
die Farbe, die Du in mein Leben gebracht hast. Kann ich gar nicht.
Aber die Nächte, die Du mit Deinem Feuer hell gemacht hast, haben Dir nichts gelassen.
Dein Licht macht mein Leben immer noch hell,
ich sehe immer noch, nach wie vor durch Deine Augen, höre mit Deinen Ohren.
Aber Du machst Dir jetzt so komplett blödsinnige Gedanken und Pläne.
Ich war auch bewusstlos, in einem Halbschlaf-Dämmerzustand.
Da kommt einem das Wasser schön warm vor, und irgendwann kommst Du dann drauf, wie tief es ist. Für mich war das kein Springen, für mich ist das ein Fallen. Und die Strecke zum absoluten Nullpunkt ist sehr, sehr lang.
Ich weiß, dass es unglaublich schwer ist für Dich,
und ich sehe deutlichst, dass Du von dem, was Du eigentlich überhaupt nicht brauchen kannst im Moment nicht genug kriegen kannst.
Mein Gott…
Reiß Dich zusammen.
Du bist in einem Moment gefangen, und aus dem kannst Du nicht raus.
Sag jetzt nicht, dass die Zeit es zeigen wird oder das später alles besser sein wird,
weil Du jetzt in diesem Moment steckst.
Aber:
Wenn Dir die Zeit ausläuft, wenn die Tage nichts bringen und die Nächte noch weniger,
selbst wenn wir auf diesem Weg scheitern sollten:
Es ist ein Moment. Ein Moment geht vorbei.
Aber Du musst ihn packen. Du kannst das.

… und nun am besten noch mal hören & sehen, Live Version mit Mick Jagger ..

Prince, Way back home, official Video & Lyrics

Brandnew Prince album: Art Official Age, 30 September, 2014

Watch more Way Back Home videos on Frequency

Way Back Home is the tenth track (ninth song) on Prince’s 37th album Art Official Age.

Info by http://princevault.com/index.php/Way_Back_Home:

While specific recording dates are not known, initial tracking is believed to have taken place in Spring or Summer 2014 at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA. British folk/soul singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, who appears as the narrator during the opening of the track, gave an interview in late February, 2014, in which she stated she had not yet recorded with Prince but would love to, indicating that the track had not yet been recorded. La Havas appeared live with Prince in March and July, 2014, and it is possible they worked together on the track then (along with Clouds, Affirmation I & II and Affirmation III), but this is purely speculative.

Lyrics:

Any person or object whatsoever
That requires your attention
Is something that has veered
from its path
And preordained destiny
of total enlightenment

I never wanted a typical life
scripted role, huh…trophy wife
All I ever wanted, to b left alone
See my beds made up at night
Cuz in my dreams I roam
Just trying to find, trying to find
My way back, back home

So many reasons why
There’s so many reasons why
I don’t belong here
But now that I am I
Without fear I am
Gonna conquer with no fear
Until I find my way back home
Until I find my way back home
Find my way back home

Most people in this world are born dead
But I was born alive
I was born with this dream
With a dream outside my head
That I could find my way back home
My my way way back home

Is this the way?

Power to the ones, power to the ones
who could raise a child like me
The path was set
But if u look the truth will set us free
I’ve heard about those happy endings
But it’s still a mystery
Lemme tell u about me
I’m happiest when I can see
My way back home
Can u see my way back home
Can u see my way back home

All that glitters ain’t gold, Prince, Gold, Lyrics

Gold! There’s a lady, 93 years old & away …

There’s a mountain and it’s mighty high
U cannot see the top unless U fly
And there’s a molehill of proven ground
There ain’t no where 2 go if U hang around

Everybody wants 2 sell what’s already been sold
Everybody wants 2 tell what’s already been told
What’s the use of money if U ain’t gonna break the mold?
Even at the center of fire there is cold
All that glitters ain’t gold
All that glitters ain’t gold, mmm

There’s an ocean of despair
There are people livin‘ there
They’re unhappy each and every day
But hell is not fashion so what U tryin‘ 2 say?

Everybody wants 2 sell what’s already been sold
Everybody wants 2 tell what’s already been told
What’s the use of money if U ain’t gonna break the mold?
Even at the center of fire there is cold
All that glitters ain’t gold, no no
All that glitters ain’t gold, no no

There’s a lady, 99 years old
If she led a good life, heaven takes her soul
Now that’s a theory and if U don’t wanna know
Step aside and make a way 4 those who want 2 go

Everybody wants 2 sell what’s already been sold (Sold)
Everybody wants 2 tell what’s already been told (Told)
What’s the use of bein‘ young if U ain’t gonna get old? (Old)
Even at the center of fire there is cold (Cold)
All that glitters (glitters) ain’t gold, no no no no no
All that glitters ain’t gold
Alright

All that glitters, all that glitters, all that glitters.. ain’t gold

Na na na na na na na (Gold {x4})
Na na na na na na na (Gold {x4})
Gold, gold, gold
All that glitters ain’t gold, gold, gold
All that glitters ain’t gold, gold, gold (Na na na na na na na)
All that glitters ain’t gold, gold, gold (Na na na na na na na)
All that glitters ain’t gold, oh
Oh yeah
1 2.. 1 2 3, let’s go!

(Na na na na na na na) {repeat}

U are now an official member of the New Power Generation
Welcome 2 The Dawn

Feel Again, OneRepublic, Live Video, Lyrics, Songtext

It’s been a long time coming since I’ve seen your face
And I’ve never went back trying to replace
Everything that I’ve had till my feet went numb
Praying like a fool that’s been on a run
Heart still beating but it’s not working
It’s like a million dollar phone that you just can’t ring
I reach out trying to love but I feel nothing
Yeah, my heart is numb

But with you
I feel again
Yeah with you
I can feel again
Yeah

Woo-hoo

I’m feeling better since you know me
I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me

It’s been a long time coming since I’ve seen your face
And I’ve never went back trying to replace
Everything that I broke till my feet went numb
Praying like a fool that just shot a gun
Heart still beating but it’s not working
It’s like a hundred thousand voices that just can’t sing
I reach out trying to love but I feel nothing
Oh my heart is numb

But with you
I feel again
And with you
I can feel again

But with you
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
I feel again
(I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me)
Yeah with you
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
I can feel again
(I was a lonely soul)

Woo-hooo…

Woo-hooo…

(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)
(I’m feeling better since you know me)
(I was a lonely soul, but that’s the old me)

I’m feeling better since you know me
I was a lonely soul but that’s the old me
A little wiser now but you show me
Yeah, I feel again
Feel again…

Fine Young Cannibals – Suspicious Minds

Songtext:
Suspicious minds

Weґre caught in a trap, I canґt walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why canґt you see what youґre doinґ to me,
When you donґt believe a word Iґm sayinґ?

We canґt go on together with suspicious minds;
And we canґt build our dreams on suspicious minds.

I saw an old friend I know, I stop and say hello,
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here you go again, ask me where Iґve been,
You canґt see the tears Iґve cried – tears I – tears Iґve cried.

We canґt go on together with suspicious minds;
And we canґt build our dreams on suspicious minds.

Oh, let out love survive, Iґll dry the tears you cry.
Donґt let this good thing die, you know,
I have never lied to you, no, no, no!

Weґre caught in a trap, I canґt walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why canґt you see what youґre doinґ to me,
When you donґt believe a word Iґm sayinґ?

We canґt go on together with suspicious minds;
And we canґt build our dreams on suspicious minds.

Weґre caught in a trap, I canґt walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why canґt you see what youґre doinґ to me,
When you donґt believe a word Iґm sayinґ?

Weґre caught in a trap, I canґt walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why canґt you see what youґre doinґ to me,
When you donґt believe a word Iґm sayinґ?
