Nosferatu – “The Night is Young”

anthology

From: Anthology (2006)

Music and Lyrics: Nosferatu

We move in silhouettes

Loved in candlelight

Can’t you feel the night is young

Come dance with the ghost

Step in through my door

Don’t you know the night is young

In the city lights

A pale reflection’s calling

How we love the night so young

 

Hanging from horizons eyes

See the faces crystalline

Trace your footsteps, follow through

Down on the ground and kiss those black lips

Back upon you, waiting on

Sound of heartbeats, breathing’s drawn

Tasting your temptation

My dark embraces revelation

 

We move in silhouettes

Loved in candlelight

Can’t you feel the night is young

Come dance with the ghost

Step in through my door

Don’t you know the night is young

In the city lights

A pale reflection’s calling

How we love the night so young

 

We move in silhouettes

Loved in candlelight

Can’t you feel the night is young

Come dance with the ghost

Step in through my door

Don’t you know the night is young

In the city lights

A pale reflection’s calling

How we love the night so young

 

Up above the skyline hightime

Look across the evenings cries

So many empty hearts just wasting

Time they don’t have left to kill

The moonlight guides the darkness near

To a place where desire waits

In cold anticipation

The Devil lays down your salvation

 

We move in silhouettes

Loved in candlelight

Can’t you feel the night is young

Come dance with the ghost

Step in through my door

Don’t you know the night is young

In the city lights

A pale reflection’s calling

How we love the night so young

Why this song

yes the night is young, and the night is long.

and there is so many things to do at night, made more beautiful under the dark light.

This song is a hymn to the electric excitement of the night, when things go widely wild.

“Walking in My Shoes” – Depeche Mode

songsoffaithanddevotionFrom : Songs of Faith and Devotion (1993)

Music and Lyrics : Martin Lee Gore

I would tell you about the things they put me through

The pain I’ve been subjected to

But the Lord himself, oh, would blush

The countless feasts laid at my feet

Forbidden fruits for me to eat

But I think your pulse would start to rush

 

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

 

Morality would frown upon

Decency look down upon

The scapegoat fate’s made of me

But I promise now, my judge and jurors

My intentions couldn’t have been purer

My case is easy to see

 

I’m not looking for a clearer conscience

Peace of mind after what I’ve been through

And before we talk of any repentance

Try walking in my shoes

 

Yeah, stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

Why this song

This song is an anthem to those who are used to be judged.

There is no reason not to be proud of who we are, as long as we do the right things.

Even dressed in black.

“Wake Up Screaming” – Paul Stanley

livetowin

Album : Live to Win (2006)

Music and Lyrics : Paul Stanley/Desmond Child/Andreas Carlsson

In a bed in my room

 All wrapped up in my own cocoon

 In my head I see you

 Like I’m stuck in a déjà-vu

 

 And it’s always the same mind games

 It’s a dangerous situation, insane

 It’s a warp on my soul and I’ve lost all control

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

 

Why must I grieve

For a lie that I still believe

It’s a waste, what a sin

It’s a fight I can never win

 

Anywhere that I go, you go

Baby, even in my own reflection, you show

Like a ghost by my side with a hold on my mind

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

 

Oh…

 

On and on

I’m running in slow motion

‘Till the dawn

When the morning saves me…

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

All alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

Why this song

“Wake Up Screaming” might just be the best song by dear Paul.

It tells the story of all of us who suffered the painful absence at least once.

“Family Tree” – Megadeth

youthanasiaFrom : Youthanasia (1994)

Music and Lyrics : Dave Mustaine

Forgotten things remembered

The tigers eat their young

The body stayed but inside the head

The mind was on the run

A conspiracy of silence

The only way out of pain

Is turn around, run through it man

Too wet to come in from the rain,

Tell them…

 

I know they were doing it to you

But don’t try doing it to me

 

Let me show you, how I love you

It’s our secret, you and me

Let me show you, how I love you

But keep it in the family tree

 

When you hear them saying “Trust me”

Don’t wait to see what’s next

Thrown to the wolves

Forever trusting

Raised in a form of living hell

Sing a one note song of rage

Live and die within your heart

So beware in the shadows

 

Your family tree waits in the dark

I say…

 

I know they were doing it to you

But don’t try doing it to me

 

Let me show you, how I love you

It’s our secret, you and me

Let me show you, how I love you

But keep it in the family tree

Let me show you, how I love you

It’s our secret, you and me

Let me show you, how I love you

The secret of the family tree

Why this song

One of the most ambiguous songs of Megadeth.

The lyrics are not complex, but hit hard as always, with the brutal words of reality.

The song got a tragic tone even if it is not a proper ballad, which is better, as the disgusting theme deserves all the Mustaine’s rage.
