Entschuldigung!

leave a comment »

810947_original

Ich nicht sprechen Deutsch!
Ich nicht sprechen Deutsch!
I said
Ich nicht sprechen Deutsch!
Ich nicht sprechen Deutsch!
Entschuldigung!

B-Side of the single released two days ago!

Who’d have thunk it? Watching PSB again on Friday in Berlin. And yes, before listening to this song I couldn’t even say “I don’t speak German”. However, my dear friend K made sure he taught me Entschuldigung before “leaving” me all alone in Germany.

I’ve got an amazing weekend coming up:
Jagwar Ma and SOHN at First Take We Take Berlin
followed by Blur, Pet Shop Boys, Bjork, My Bloody Valentine, Pantha du Prince, John
Talabot… at the Berlin Festival in the middle of an abandoned airport
and on Monday I’ll relax with Debussy and Ravel at the Berlin Philharmonie

Did I just rub it in your face? Oh, I’m sorry.
I mean Entschuldigung!

Take that trip down memory lane
Where you’re never gonna feel the same
Where you’re never gonna take the blame
Change your name, now you out the game
So you head outside, feel the rain
Something in your brain can’t break the chain
Same mistake again, fake the pain again,
Day to day you prowl, wakey wakey now
Holy cow you’re in doubt
You left and now you feel down
Your heart lies back in that town
So creep back in, don’t make a sound
Or lose your crown again, sleep around again
Tell your friends that you’re proud
Or ask yourself what you really want from life
Don’t follow that crowd!

I never tried to make you
walk into the deep end
and now I find myself
awake from all the weekend
I never tried to cause
that Sunday morning creep-in
I want to stay
but I must row that boat home

It’s Thursday night
Let’s get it right
I want to know
you’re gonna stay for the weekend
Starting tonight
Let’s do it right
I want to know
you’re gonna stay for the weekend
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
I want to know
you’re gonna stay for the weekend

PS: yes, Love is a Bourgeois construct and Schadenfreude is such an amazing word.

When you walked out you did me a favour
It’s absolutely clear to me
that love is a bourgeois construct
just like they said at university
I’ll be taking my time for a long time
with all the schadenfreude it’s cost
calculating what you’ve lost

[…]

Talking tough and feeling bitter
but better now it’s clear to me
that love is a bourgeois construct
so I’ve given up the bourgeoisie

Always on my mind

Whoever said Pet Shop Boys were “The Smiths you can dance to” definitely had a point: Melancholy, witty lyrics and pounding beats… Some will say you can dance to Morrissey’s darkest lyrics. I remember joyfully singing along to this one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Anyway, so PSB were in Byblos this weekend and offered us one of the best concerts in the festival’s history. The highlight of the show which was also my own personal emotional low was Always on My Mind

Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
Im so happy that you’re mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, Im sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind

Amazing how this song’s riff makes you dance and how it just made me tear up…

Anyway, it’s a country classic first sung by Brenda Lee

Willie Nelson covered it

So did Elvis

And talking about the King, last night around midnight I stumbled upon this gem

Maybe it’s too late I sometimes I even hate myself
For loving you
Trying to be strong then night-time comes along and I start wanting you
Wanting you.
Where is all my self control I’m burning way down in my soul
And needing you

Wishing I could be the man, I try to
Hating me for wanting you to be with you
Knowing you don’t love me like you used to
But it’s midnight, Oh and I miss you

It’s getting late and I know that’s when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light
I ought to go to bed and try to straighten out my head and just forget you
Oh but it’s midnight, yeah and I miss you

It’s getting late and I know that’s when I am weak
Funny how things have a way of looking so much brighter in the day light
I ought to go to bed to try to straighten out my head and just forget you
Oh but it’s midnight and I miss you

It’s midnight and I miss you

I remembered my father’s words:
نفس تسكن إليها
in the sense of
ما سكنت إليه النفس ، واطمأن إليه القلب ، والإثم ما لم تسكن إليه النفس ولم يطمئن إليه القلب وإن أفتاك المفتون

And this morning I woke up to this cover of Fade Into You, which definitely is not a love song… Emotional turmoil, teenage years, 20 years ago, Knocking on Heaven’s door knock off, haunting

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

A stranger’s light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then it’s smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you

I think it’s strange you never knew
X2

I think it’s strange you never knew

That’s it for today, the time and date for our next session has not been determined yet…
