20 liefdesliedjes

It’s so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl.
With the way you look I understand that you were not impressed.
But I heard you let that little friend of mine take off your party dress.
I’m not going to get too sentimental,
like those other sticky Valentines,
‘cause I don’t know if you are loving somebody.
I only know it isn’t mine.
Alison, I know this world is killing you.
Oh, Alison, my aim is true.Well I see you’ve got a husband now.
Did he leave your pretty fingers lying in the wedding cake?
You used to hold him right in your hand.
Bet he took all he could take.
Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking,
when I hear the silly things that you say.
I think somebody better put out the big light,
‘cause I can’t stand to see you this way.
Alison, I know this world is killing you.
Oh, Alison, my aim is true. My aim is true.
Elvis Costello 1977
Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes.
Warm evenings, pale mornings, bottle of blues.
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair.
Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes.Her words still dance inside my head.
Her comb still lies beside my bed.
And the sun comes up without her.
But I remember everything she said.
Brass buttons, green silks and silver shoes.
Gram Parsons – Brass Buttons – 1969
I’ll never let you see the way my broken heart is hurtin’ me.
I’ve got my pride and I know how to hide all my sorrow and pain.
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain
If I wait for cloudy skies you won’t know the rain from the tears in my eyes.
You’ll never know that I still love you so though the heartaches remain.
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rainRain drops fallin’ from heaven could never wash away my misery.
But since we’re not together
I pray for stormy weather
to hide these tears I hope you’ll never see.

Some day when my cryin’s done
I’m gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun.
I may be a fool but till then darling you’ll never see me complain.
I’ll do my cryin’ in the rain
Crying in the rain – 1960 – Boudleaux & Felice Bryant – Everly Brothers 

Been dazed and confused for so long it’s not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don’t know where you’re goin’, only know just where you’ve been.
Jimmy Page – Led Zeppelin 1 – 1969
This is the first day of my life,
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed,
They’re spreading blankets on the beach
Yours is the first face that I saw,
I think I was blind before I met you
And so I thought I’d let you know,
That these things take forever,
I especially am slow
First Day of my life – Bright Eyes / Conor Oberst – 2005
Today I passed you on the street.
And my heart fell at your feet.
Somebody else stood by your side.
And he looked so satisfied.
It’s hard to know another’s lips will kiss you.
And hold you just the way I used to do.
I Can’t Help It If I’m Still In Love With You.
Hank Williams – 1951
Something told me it was over.
When I saw you and her talkin’.
Something deep down in my soul said, ‘Cry, girl’,
When I saw you and that girl walkin’
I would rather, I would rather go blind,
Then to see you walk away from me,I was just sittin here thinkin’,
of your kiss and your warm embrace,
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips revealed the tears that was on my face,
Ellington Jordan – 1969 – opgenomen door Chickenshack en Rod Stewart
I bless the day I found you.
I want to stay around you.
And so I beg you, let it be me
Don’t take this heaven from one.
If you must cling to someone.
Now and forever, let it be me
Each time we meet love.
I find complete love.
Without your sweet love what would life be
So never leave me lonely.
Tell me you love me only.
And that you’ll always let it be me
Each time we meet love.
I find complete love.
Without your sweet love what would life be
So never leave me lonely.
Tell me you love me only.
And that you’ll always—let–it be–me
Let it be me – Pierre Delanoe / Gilbert Becaud – 1960 – Everly Brothers
Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and marks any heart
not tough or strong enough to take a lot of pain,
Love is like a cloud, holds a lot of rain
I’m young I know, but even so I know a thing or two. I’ve learned from you,
I’ve really learned a lot, Love is like a flame, it burns you when it’s hot.
Some fools speak of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness.
Some fools fool themselves I guess, but they’re not foolin’ me.
I know it isn’t true. Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Felice and Boudleaux Bryant  1960 – Gram Parsons & Emmelou Harris – 1973
Love letters straight from your heart,
Keep us so near while we’re apart.
I’m not alone in the night,
When I can have all the love you write.
I memorize every line.
I kiss the name that you sign.
And darling, then I read again.
Right from the start,
Love letters straight from your heart.
Young & Heyman 1945 – Frankie Miller 1977
I am a man of constant sorrow, I’ve seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.
It’s fare thee well my old lover , I never expect to see you again,
For I’m bound to ride that northern railroad, Perhaps I’ll die upon this train.
You can bury me in some deep valley, For many years where I may lay,
Then you may learn to love another, While I am sleeping in my grave.
Maybe your friends think I’m just a stranger,
My face you’ll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given,
I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.
Man of constant sorrow – Dick Burnett 1913 – Stanley Brothers 1951
Mama, do you see what I see.
On your knees and pray for me.
Mathilde’s come back to me.
Charley, don’t want another beer.
Tonight I’m gonna drink my tears.
Mathilde’s come back to me.
Fellas, don’t leave me tonight.
Tonight I’m going back to fight.
Wretched Mathilde’s in sight.
My heart, my heart, stop beating so.
Just make as if you didn’t know.
That Mathilde’s come back to me.
My heart, stop being overjoyed.
Remember you were once destroyed.
By Mathilde, who’s come back to me.
Mama, can you hear me yell.
Your baby boy’s gone back to hell.
Mathilde’s come back to me.
My friends, don’t count on me no more.
I’ve gone and crashed through heaven’s door.
My sweet Mathilde’s here.
Once more, once more
Mathilde – Jacques Brell 1964 – Scott Walker 1967
I saw her today,
I saw her face,
It was the face I loved and I knew
I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray.
That they’d go away
But still they begin,
Needles and pins,
Because of all my pride.
The tears I gotta hide
Needles and pins – Jack Nitzsche and Sonny Bono- The Searchers 1964
My funny Valentine, you make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable.
Yet, you´re my fav´rite work of art.
Is your figure less than Greek ?
Is your mouth a little weak ?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?
But don´t change on hair for me, not if you care for me.
Stay little Valentine, stay !
Each day is Valentine´s day.
Rogers & Hart 1937 – Frank Sinatra 1955
Deep within my heart lies a melody, A song of old San Antone.
Where in dreams I live with a memory, Beneath the stars, all alone.
Well it was there I found, beside the Alamo,
Enchantments strange as the blue up above.
For that moonlit pass, that only he would know,
Still hears my broken song of love.Moon in all your splendor, known only to my heart,
Call back my rose, rose of San Antone.
Lips so sweet and tender, like petals falling apart,
Speak once again of my love, my own.
Broken song, empty words I know, Still live in my heart all alone.
For that moonlit pass by the Alamo, And rose, my rose of San Antone.
Bob Wills 1939 – Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys
I’ve just met what could be, The making of me, She’s got soul
Out of the blue, into my world, I’ve found a pearl, She’s got soul
I’ve been lonely so long, I stopped hoping I’d ever find someone
So it just goes to show how wrong you can be
She’s got soul – Nick Lowe – 2001 – The convincer
She’s got a smile that reminds me of childhood memories,
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky.
When I see her face, She takes me away to that special place,
And if I’d stare too long, I’d probably break down and cry.
Sweet child o’ mine, Sweet love of mineShe’s got eyes of the bluest skies as if they thought of rain,
I hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain,
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place  where as a child I’d hide,
And pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by,
Sweet child o’ mine, Sweet love of mine
Sweet child o’ mine –
Slash/Axl Rose – 1987 – Guns N’ Roses – Appetite for destruction
Don’t you be wasting all your money,
On syrup and honey,
Because I’m sweet enough
Don’t you be using every minute,
On making a living,
Because we’ve got our love
Listen to me 1,2,3,
Baby, baby, baby,
Spend your time on me
Syrup & Honey – Duffy – Rockferry 2008
The screen door slams, Mary’ dress waves,
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays,
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely,
Hey that’s me and I want you only,
Don’t turn me home again, I just can’t face myself alone again
You can hide ‘neath your covers and study your pain,
Make crosses from your lovers, Throw roses in the rain,  etc etc etc.
Bruce Springsteen – Thunder Road – 1975
We know it’s wrong to let this fire burn between us,
We’ve got to stop this wild desire in you and in me,
So we’ll let the flame burn once again until the thrill is gone,
Then we’ll sweep out the ashes in the morningEach time when we meet we both agree that it’s for the last time,
But out of your arms I’m out of my mind,
So we’ll taste the thrill of stolen love tonight until the dawning,
And we’ll sweep out the ashes in the morning.
Joyce Allsup – Gram Parsons & Emmelou Harris 1973
