El hijo del capitán trueno
Nunca fue un hijo digno del padre
Salió poeta y no una fiera
Hijo de su madre
El hijo del capitán trueno
No quiso nunca ser marinero
No se embarcaba en aventuras
Levantaba dudas
El hijo del capitán trueno
Tenía algo que le hacía distinto
Distinto como cada quien es
De lo nunca visto
Y se pasaba horas entre las ballenas
Y se hibridaba solo y siempre con sirenas
Y apoyado en el faro cantaba así
En el océano me pierdo
Veo el océano y ... no sé
Tan increíblemente inmenso
Tan respetable
Que no navegaré
No navegaré
No lo navegaré
El hijo del capitán trueno
Tenía al menos un anillo por dedo
Y en cada oreja un pendiente, sí...
Pero ¡qué valiente!
El hijo del capitán trueno
Tenía fama y mucha pinta de raro
Y a todo el mundo le hizo ver
Que eso no era malo
Y así que le encantaba estar entre ballenas
Y se especializaba en conquistar sirenas
Y de noche en el faro le cantaba así...
(ballenas, delfines y sirenas)
y se pasaba horas entre sus ballenas
con arte seducía a todas las sirenas
desde lo alto del faro les cantaba así, así, así...
en el océano me pierdo
veo el océano y... no sé
tan increíblemente grande y tan inmenso
tan respetable
que no navegaré
no navegaré
no lo navegaré

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."
