Asking For Love


Songwriter: Jóhann G. Jóhannssont / Album: V.A. - Asking For Love


Give your heart a kind of wing
Let it fly
For my love is entering
Give it a try

With your arms around my neck
Hold me to
Let this night surround our love
Me and you

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

Love is like a growing grass
Loves the rain
When it's real don't let it pass
Has all to gain

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
Yeah, that's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

Candy Man

 / Songwriter: Philips & Kant / Album: V.A. - Sprelllifandi

I left home when i was only seventeen
Met a guy, he and i
Drove down to new orleans
He seemed to know his way around
And i thought i could last
The sweet-talkin', oh,
C-c-c-candyman

Warmed his bed
Kept him fed
And oh i loved him so
Thought i had to cry alot
Whenever he would go
I guess i was just too young
To really understand
A sweet-talkin' ooooooh,
C-c-c-candyman!!!

Sweet talking candyman
My sweet talking
Sweet talking candyman
I hear you talking!

He played around
And brought me down
And finally threw me out
I got burned
But I learned
What life was all about
And i often think of him
Every now and then
A sweet-talkin', ooooooh,
C-c-c-candyman

Sweet talking candyman
My sweet talking
Sweet talking candyman
I hear you talking ...

Frank Mills

 / Songwriter: Philips & Kant / Album: V.A. - Sprelllifandi

First þegar hitti'ég Frank Mills
Þá var fimmtándi sepember.
Ég hitti hann einmitt hér.
Hann sagði mér hvar hann býr.
Svo gleymdi ég því
Síðan hef ég ekki séð hann aftur
honum svipar í sjón George Harrisonar
nema´ að hárið á honum er alltaf greitt aftur í tagl.

Ég elska´ hann mjög heitt en samt vil ég síður
sjást með hann mér við hlið.
Ég held hann búi í Brooklyn.
Hann er með hjálm á hausnum
og í gatslitnum gallabuxum
og leðurjakka sem letraðer á
“María Mamma og “Hell´s Angels.”

Mikið þætti mér vænt um ef þið
mynduð sjá hann að þið
segðuð við hann hitti mig hér
og að mig langi ekki´í aurinn
aftur sem hann sníkti af mér
helldur hann.

Io E Te

 / Songwriter: Leone Tinganelli / Album: Ýmsir - Veðmálið

Ho camminato a lungo in questa notte
In quanto rischio te
E il mio passato si è chiuso con un forse
E su cosa è giusto

Le mie voglie confuse con le tue
La tua pelle sulla mia
E se chiudevo gli occhi vedevo i tuoi
E il mio domani ancora insieme a te

Due mondi così lontani, ma tanto uguali
In quest'universo d'incomprensioni
Nemici in questa guerra di paure
E in fondo amanti perché siamo in due

Siamo solo in due
Io e te
Papparappappa...

Siamo solo in due
Io e te
Papparappappa....

E poi piangendo mi hai chiesto se non ti amo
lo so
Non te lo dico mai
La vita spesso è dura, non me l'aspettavo
Sognavo e tu lo sai

Lontani nello stesso letto ci ritroviamo
Ognuno coi pensieri suoi
Ma so che la tua mano cerca la mia
Ti amo amore anche se io non te l'ho detto mai
Due mondi così lontani, ma tanto uguali
In quest'universo d'incomprensioni
Nemici in questa guerra di paure
E in fondo amanti perché siamo in due

Siamo solo in due
Ma so che la tua mano cerca la mia
Ti amo amore, anche se io non te l'ho detto mai
Io e te siamo solo in due, io e te, siamo solo in due...


I've walked for a long time tonight, since I'm risking (to lose) you
and my past ends with a "maybe", and about what's right
My desires mixed up with yours, your skin on mine
and if I closed my eyes I saw yours, and my tomorrow still together with you

two worlds so far apart, but so similar, in this universe of incomprehensions
enemies in this war of frights, and after all lovers, since we're two,
we're just two, I and you...
we're just two, I and you...

And then you asked me crying if I don't love you, I know, I never tell you
life is often hard, I didn't expect so, I was dreaming and you know that

We find ourselves far apart in the same bed, each one with his own thoughts
but I know your hand looks for mine
I love you, honey, even if I've never told you

two worlds so far apart, but so similar, in this universe of incomprehensions
enemies in this war of frights, and after all lovers, since we're two,
we're just two, I and you...

but I know your hand is looking for mine
I love you honey even if I've never told you
I and you are just two, I and you...
are just two...

Lay Down

 / Songwriter: Melanie Safka / Album: V.A. - Stone Free

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh raise them high again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown ...

Ruby Tuesday

 / Songwriter: Rolling Stones / Album: V.A. - Stone Free

She would never say
Where she came from
Yesterday don't matter
'Cause it's gone

While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No-one knows
She comes and then she goes

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Don't ask her why
She needs to be free
She is gonna tell you
It's the only way to be

She just can't be chained
To a life where nothing's gained
And nothing's lost
But, oh, such a cost

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Oh, there's no time to lose
I heard her say
You gotta catch your dreams
Before they run away

Dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you
Might lose your mind
Is life unkind?

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye, ruby tuesday ...

Sounds Of Silence


Songwriter: Simon and Garfunkel / Album: V.A. - Stone Free


Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

Tvær stjörnure


Songwriter: Simon and Garfunkel / Album: V.A. - Stone Free


Tíminn flýgur áfram
Og hann teymir mig á eftir sér
Og ekki fæ ég miklu ráðið
Um það hvert hann fer

En ég vona bara hann hugsi
Soldið hlýlega til mín
Og leiði mig á endanum
Aftur upp til þín

Ég gaf þér forðum keðju
úr gulli um hálsinn þinn
Svo gleymdir þú mér ekki
í dagsins amstri nokkurt sinn

í augunum þínum svörtu
horfði ég á sjálfan mig um hríð
og ég vonaði að
ég fengi bara
að vera þar alla tíð

Það er margt sem angrar
en ekki er það þó biðin
því ég sé það fyrst á rykinu
hve langur tími er liðinn

og ég skrifa þar eitthvað með fingrinum
sem skiptir öllu máli
því að nóttin mín
er dimm og ein
og dagurrin á báli

Já og andlitið þitt málað
hve ég man það alltaf skýrt
augnlínur og bleikar varir brosið svo hýrt

jú ég veit vel að ókeypis
er allt það sem er best
en svo þarf ég
að greiða dýru
verði það sem er vest

Ég sakna þín í birtingu
að hafa þig ekki við hlið mér

og ég sakna þín á daginn
þegar sólin brosir við mér

og ég sakna þín á kvöldin
þegar dimman dettur á

en ég sakna þín mest á nóttinni
er svipirnir fara á stjá

Svo lít ég upp og sé
við erum saman þarna tvær
stjörnur á blárri festingunni
sem færast nær og nær

ég man þig þegar augun mín
eru opin hverja stund
en þegar ég
nú legg þau aftur
fer ég á þinn fund

White Rabbit

 / Songwriter: Jefferson Airplane / Album: V.A. - Stone Free

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell him a hookah-smokin' caterpillar
Has given you the call

And call Alice when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you have just have some kind of mushroom
And your mind is movin' low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

And logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head

Remember
What the doormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head
