Sigur Rós – Óveður Lyrics 1 year ago
English Translation:

Storm (bad weather)

Cloud(s) [?] short
Creeping closer
Surrounding me
Grey grains
A useless life this is [?]
Find my way alone


Now outside I own [?]
The visibility here
Becoming worse and worse
Big fools [?]
Let us close on it
Waves are on
Let the sun beams break through
And light my way

Every night I watched disoriented
Looking all around
What should I do?

Don't know which foot to step on
Whatever I do stuck again on earth

Why does everything have to be so complicated?
I always speak a description of you

Streetlight’s are needed to shine
But they have been kicked to death

Fats Domino – Blueberry Hill Lyrics 3 years ago
"Fats recorded this in LA, at a session in which he ran out of material to tape.

'Cause that's how he gets his fucking rocks off and he's orange,"

"Fuck that! This is for Colin, ball up a fist,
And keep that shit balled (BALD) like Donald the bitch,"

@[sophia2065:21353] To me it sounds like that line "But you're perfect, poorly wired circuit" means that though the other person is not technically perfect (he's not "wired" correctly) he's still perfect to her regardless. Kind of sums up the whole song really.
