And All That Could Have Been

May 31, 2007

Breeze still carries the sound
Maybe I’ll disappear
Tracks will fade in the snow
You won’t find me here

Ice is starting to form
Ending what had begun
I am locked in my head
With what I’ve done
I know you tried to rescue me
Didn’t let anyone get in
Left with a trace of all that was
And all that could have been

Please
Take this
And run far away
Far away from me
I am
Tainted
The two of us
Were never meant to be
All these
Pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my
Nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me
Gone fading everything
And all that could have been

Please
Take this
And run far away
Far as you can see
I am
Tainted
And happiness and peace of mind
Were never meant for me
All these
Pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my
Nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me

18,000

May 7, 2007

Algo tan simple y cotidiano, quitarse la ropa, se vuelve una experiencia tan fuerte cuando 18,000 personas lo hacen al mismo tiempo. Estás ahí, completamente desnuda, tal y como eres, perdida en un mar de cuerpos y de pronto ya no importa nada, si tu cuerpo no es “perfecto”, si tienes cicatrices, tatuajes, cualquier tipo de marca, nada importa, por que las personas son solo eso, personas, no imágenes fabricadas, no irrealidades manipuladas. De pronto la conciencia aflora, los patanes se vuelven caballeros, los ancianos sonríen como niños, los rostros son más importantes que cuerpos desnudos. Valor o indecencia. Libertad o inmoralidad. Arte o exhibicionismo. Todos son pretextos, lo único que importa es estar ahí, sentir, vibrar, sonreír. Pero en encanto no dura mucho, los minutos se acaban, las ropas regresan y con ellas las máscaras, los estereotipos, el pudor. Solo queda el recuerdo de haber corrido libre por la plaza, la alegría de haber conocido a la gente sin miedo. Dieciocho mil personas…

(Birds flying high

You know how I feel

Sun in the sky

You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn

It’s a new day

It’s a new life

For me

And I’m feeling good)

Some Kind of Stranger

May 4, 2007

And yes I believe in what we had
But words got in the way
And only yesterday
As I was leaving
Lord knows I’ve tried to say but I’ve
Heard a million conversations
Going where they’ve been before
Seen the way that careful lingers
Undecided at the door

CHORUS
And all I know for sure
All I know for real
Is knowing doesn’t mean so much
When placed against the feeling
The heat inside
When bodies meet
When fingers touch

All my words are secondhand and
Useless in the face of this
Rationale and rhyme and reason
Pale beside a single kiss
And I’ve heard so many things I
Fail to understand at all
I’d settle anytime for
Unknown footsteps in the hall outside

CHORUS

Because the world is cruel and
Promises are broken
Don’t try to tell me
Anything don’t try to tell me
You’ll be true to me you know the
Real truth is never spoken
And I know the world is cold but
If you hold on tight to what you
Find you might not mind too much though
Even this must pass away and
Memories may last for years but
Names are just for souvenirs
Some kind of angel let me
Look into your eyes
Don’t give me whys and wherefores
Reason or surprise
I don’t care for words that don’t belong
And I don’t care what you’re called
Tell me later if at all
I can wait a long long time
Before I hear another love song

Come here I think you’re beautiful
My door is open wide
Some kind of angel come inside

Come here I think you’re beautiful
My door is open wide
Some kind of stranger come inside
