J'ai la tête de celui qui s'entête
Peut-être même du voleur de bicyclettes
De celui qu'a la main près du sac à main
Qu'on s'y trompe, moi sans passer d'examen
Je sais ce que vous avez jamais su

Non, no, niet, dans toutes les langues nada
Le bossu ne fait pas sa vie avec Esmeralda
En tous cas si t'y crois, je te pince !
C'est dans les rêves que les bergères épousent des princes

chorus :
Je suis celui qu'on a puni deux fois
Ici et puis là-bas
Je suis celui qu'on a puni deux fois
Ici et puis là-bas

On m'accuse d'être de toutes les combines
Quatre épouses et combien de concubines
Je sais bien que c'est pas là le moindre défaut
Et qui prend l'ascenseur pour l'échafaud, hein ?
Je fais la confidence à ces tordus...

Mais je l'ai dit et redit et si tu lis ma bio
Tu y trouveras une enfance comme il faut
Si tu cherches le Bronx, reste dans ton ghetto
Mais s'il est véridique que je suis né dans la rue


Non, non je n'ai pas le culte des racines
Je prends pas ce qu'il y a dans la vitrine
J'écoute la voix qui me dit "va chercher la lumière"
Mais je vais pas courir la vie entière
Mais je vais pas m'échapper davantage
Derrière le tramway qui s'appelait déjà dégage

Et je vais pas attendre qu'on m'épluche
La tête dans le sable comme une autruche
Non ! Je cours, je galope et jusqu'à bout de souffle

Je cours dans la neige et sans les moufles
Ainsi est la rencontre du quatrième type
Retour à l'expéditeur, c'est pas le bon prototype

Je sais où je gêne
Que j'ai des airs de celui qui tchoure l'oxygène, car...

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
