Ap to parasiro mou stelne
Na dio ke tria ke tessera filia
Pou ftanoun sto limani
Ena ke dio que tria ke tessera poulia

Posi sela na eho ena ke dio ke tria ke tessera pedia
pou san sa megalosoun ola
na hinoun leventes kia harn tou Piria

Osso ki an saxo
te vrisko allo limani
Treli na m ehi kani Osso tou Piria
Pou otan vradiasi
Trakudia m aradiasi
Ke tis penies tou allasi
Gemisi apo vedia

Apo tin porta mou san vgo
Ten eparhi kanis
pou na min ton ahapo
Ke san to vradi kimiso
xero pos, xero pos sa ton onirafto
Petradia vaso sto lemo
ke mia han, ke mia handra filarto
queda vradia kartero sto
limani sa vgo kappian ahnosto na vro

Osso ki an saxo
te vrisko allo limani
Treli na m ehi kani Osso tou Piria
Pou otan vradiasi
Trakudia m aradiasi
Ke tis penies tou allasi
Gemisi apo vedia

Ap to parasiro mou stelne
Na dio ke tria ke tessera filia
Pou ftanoun sto limani
Ena ke dio que tria ke tessera poulia
Posi sela na eho ena ke dio ke tria ke tessera pedia
pou san sa megalosoun
ola na hinoun leventes kia harn tou Piria

    Translated to english this means:

    From my balcony I send one, two, three and four kisses to the world. Over the docks of Piraeus fly one, two, three and four seagulls I am told.

    How much I'd love to have one, two, three and four boys, proud and fine, And when one day they grow up They'll be manly and strong for this precious port of mine.

    And when I come out of my door there is no one in the world, there is no one I don't love. And every night I close my eyes and I sleep and I know I'll dream of them just like before.

    Jewels around my neck a good-charm I carry because the night falls and I long to find a perfect stanger and seduce him with my song.

    So much I've tried I've never found a port to captivate my heart as Piraeus does.

    And when the night falls the air is filled with songs with tunes and sounds and laughter bursting with life and youthful calls.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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
Radiohead
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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
