Leonard Cohen – I Can’t Forget

 

 

I stumbled out of bed
I got ready for the struggle
I smoked a cigarette
And I tightened up my gut
I said this can’t be me
Must be my double
And I can’t forget
And I can’t forget
I can’t forget but I don’t remember what
I’m burning up the road
I’m heading down to Phoenix
I got this old address
Of someone that I knew
It was high and fine and free
Oh you should’ve seen us
And I can’t forget
And I can’t forget
Ican’t forget but I don’t remember who
I’ll be there today with a big bouquet of cactus
I’ve got this rig that runs, runs on memory
And I promise, cross my heart they’ll never catch us
But if they do just tell ‘em it was me
I’ve loved you all my life
And that’s how I want to end it
The summer’s almost gone
And winter’s tuning up
The summer’s gone but a lot goes on forever
And I can’t forget
I can’t forget
I can’t forget, but I don’t remember what

Leonard Cohen

Carmo – Zeca Baleiro

 

“Pelas planícies escuras
Entre o asfalto e o aço
Meu braço enlaça o teu braço
E a noite joga o seu manto sobre nós
Gritamos mas
Ninguém ouve a nossa voz

Os pés desertos de espinhos
As mãos tateiam as trevas
A chuva rega a solidão
O coração sangra e pulsa
E nada mais importa
Mesmo a vida tanto faz”

O silêncio – Arnaldo Antunes

“antes de existir computador existia tevê
antes de existir tevê existia luz elétrica
antes de existir luz elétrica existia bicicleta
antes de existir bicicleta existia enciclopédia
antes de existir enciclopédia existia alfabeto
antes de existir alfabeto existia a voz
antes de existir a voz existia o silêncio
o silêncio”

Arnaldo Antunes
