Underneath it all by Gwen Stefani and Dave Stewart

There’s times when I want something more
Someone more like me
There’s times when this dress rehearsal
Seems incomplete

But you see the colors in me
Like no one else
And behind your dark glasses
You’re something else

You’re really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I’m really lucky
Underneath it all
You’re really lovely

You know some real bad tricks
And you need some discipline
But lately you’ve been trying real hard
And giving me your best

And you give me the most gorgeous sleep
That I’ve ever had
And when it’s really bad
I guess it’s not that bad

You’re really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I’m really lucky
Underneath it all
You’re really lovely

So many moons that we have seen
Stumbling back next to me
I’ve seen right through and underneath

And you make me better
I’ve seen right through and underneath
And you make me better

You’ve used up all your coupons
And all you got left is me
And somehow I’m full of forgiveness
I guess it’s meant to be…

You’re really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I’m really lucky
Underneath it all
You’re really lovely

Someone like you by Adele and Dan Wilson

I heard that you’re settled down
that you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
but I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
that for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

You know how the time flies,
only yesterday was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised
in a summer haze
bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
but I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
that for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too,
don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Nothing compares
no worries or cares
regrets and mistakes
they are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you,
don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

King of sorrow by Paul Denman, Stuart Matthewman, Helen (Sade) Adu, and Andrew Hale

I’m crying everyone’s tears
And there inside our private war
I died the night before
And all of these remnants of joy and disaster
What am I suppose to do

I want to cook you a soup that warms your soul
But nothing would change, nothing would change at all
It’s just a day that brings it all about
Just another day and nothing’s any good

The DJ’s playing the same song
I have so much to do
I have to carry on
I wonder if this grief will ever let me go
I feel like I am the king of sorrow, yeah
The king of sorrow

I suppose I could just walk away
Will I disappoint my future if I stay
It’s just a day that brings it all about
Just another day and nothing’s any good

The DJ’s playing the same song
I have so much to do
I have to carry on
I wonder will this grief ever be gone
Will it ever go
I’m the king of sorrow, yeah
The king of sorrow

I’m crying everyone’s tears
I have already paid for all my future sins
There’s nothing anyone
Can say to take this away
It’s just another day and nothing’s any good

I’m the king of sorrow, yeah
King of sorrow
I’m the king of sorrow, yeah
King of sorrow

Sunny came home by Shawn Colvin and John Leventhal

Sunny came home to her favorite room
Sunny sat down in the kitchen
She opened a book and a box of tools
Sunny came home with a missionShe says “Days go by, I’m hypnotized
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire”

Sunny came home with a list of names
She didn’t believe in transcendence
And it’s time for a few small repairs, she said
Sunny came home with a vengeance

She says “Days go by, I don’t know why
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire”

Get the kids and bring a sweater
Dry is good and wind is better
Count the years, you always knew it
Strike a match, go on and do it

Oh, days go by, I’m hypnotized
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Oh, light the sky and hold on tight
The world is burning down
She’s out there on her own, and she’s all right
Sunny came home

Sunny came home
Came home
Home

Bohemian Rhapsody by Freddie Mercury

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I’m easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn’t mean to make you cry,
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body’s aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (any way the wind blows),
I don’t wanna die,
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico.

I’m just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let me go) Will not let you go.
(Let me go) Will not let you go.
(Never, never, never let me go) Ah.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
(Oh, mama mia, mama mia) Mama mia, let me go.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows.

You do by Aimee Mann

You stay the night at his house

with no ride to work

and I’m the one who tells you

he’s another jerk

but you’re the one who can succeed

you’ve only got to prove your need–

and you do

you really do

The sex you’re trading up for

what you hope is love

is just another thing that

he’ll be careless of

but though there are caveats galore

you’ve only got to love him more–

and you do

you really do

even when it’s all too clear

You write a little note that

you leave on the bed

and spend some time dissecting

every word he said

and if he seemed a little strange

well, baby–anyone can change

and you do

you do

you really do

Deathly by Aimee Mann

Now that I’ve met you
would you object to
never seeing each other again
cause I can’t afford to
climb aboard you
no one’s got that much ego to spend

So don’t work your stuff
because I’ve got troubles enough
no, don’t pick on me
when one act of kindness could be
deathly
deathly
definitely

Cause I’m just a problem
for you to solve and
watch dissolve in the heat of your charm
but what will you do when
you run it through and
you can’t get me back on the farm

So don’t work your stuff
because I’ve got troubles enough
no, don’t pick on me
when one act of kindness could be
deathly
deathly
definitely

You’re on your honor
cause I’m a goner
and you haven’t even begun
so do me a favor
if I should waver
be my savior
and get out the gun

Just don’t work your stuff
because I’ve got troubles enough
no, don’t pick on me
when one act of kindness could be
deathly
deathly
definitely

I’ll be by Edwin McCain

The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath
Emeralds from mountains thrust toward the sky
Never revealing their depth
Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I’ll be captivated
I’ll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

I’ll be your crying shoulder
I’ll be your love suicide
and I’ll be better when I’m older
I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

Rain falls angry on the tin roof
As we lie awake in my bed
You’re my survival, you’re my living proof
My love is alive not dead
Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I’ll be captivated I’ll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache, that hang from above

I’ll be your crying shoulder
I’ll be your love suicide
and I’ll be better when I’m older
I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

I’ve been dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
Tuned in, turned on, Remembered the things that you said

I’ll be your crying shoulder
I’ll be your love suicide
and I’ll be better when I’m older
I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

Killing me softly with his song by Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life, with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him and listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life, with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life, with his words
Killing me softly with his song

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I wasn’t there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life, with his words
Killing me softly with his song

Ek ladki ko dekha by Javed Akhtar

Saw a girl then it felt like this
Saw a girl then it felt, as if

a blooming rose, as if
a poet’s dream, as if
a bright ray of light, as if
a deer in the woods, as if
a moonlit night, as if
a softly whispered sentence, as if
a lamp burning in the temple, O!
Saw a girl then it felt like this!

Saw a girl then it felt like this
Saw a girl then it felt, as if
a form of dawn, as if
sunlight in winter, as if
a twang of the veena*, as if
the life in colors, as if
the swaying vines, as if
the play of waves, as if
the cool breeze carries fragrance, O!
Saw a girl then it felt like this

Saw a girl then it felt like this
Saw a girl then it felt, as if
a dancing peacock, as if
a silken thread, as if
a symphony of fairies, as if
a fire built of sandalwood, as if
the sixteen ornaments of beauty, as if
a fountain of nectar, as if
slowly rising intoxication, O!
Saw a girl then it felt like this
Saw a girl then it felt like this!

*a veena is a stringed musical instrument.

Note: I did this English translation.

हो ओ … एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा
एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा, जैसे
खिलता गुलाब, जैसे
शायर का ख्वाब, जैसे
उजली किरन, जैसे
बन में हिरन, जैसे
चाँदनी रात, जैसे
नरमी बात, जैसे
मन्दिर में हो एक जलता दिया, हो!
ओ… एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा!

हो, एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा
एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा, जैसे
सुबह का रूप, जैसे
सरदी की धूप, जैसे
वीणा की तान, जैसे
रंगों की जान, जैसे
बलखायें बेल, जैसे
लहरों का खेल, जैसे
खुशबू लिये आये ठंडी हवा, हो!
ओ… एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा!

हो, एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा
एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा, जैसे
नाचता मोर, जैसे
रेशम की डोर, जैसे
परियों का राग, जैसे
सन्दल की आग, जैसे
सोलह श्रृंगार, जैसे
रस की फुहार, जैसे
आहिस्ता आहिस्ता बढ़ता नशा, हो!
ओ… एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा!
एक लड़की को देखा तो ऐसा लगा!

Momentum by Aimee Mann

Oh, for the sake of momentum
I’ve allowed my fears to get larger than life
And it’s brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

And I know life is getting shorter
I can’t bring myself to set the scene
Even when it’s approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

Oh, for the sake of momentum
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day
But I hate to think of effort expended
All those minutes and days and hours
I have frittered away.

And I know life is getting shorter
I can’t bring myself to set the scene
Even when it’s approaching torture
I’ve got my routine

But I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

when I can’t confront the doubts I have
I can’t admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I’m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.
