Lyrics

Postby Bjossi » Thu Nov 12, 2009 12:10 pm

I have noticed the lack of lyrics in Yello's most recent work (The Eye and Touch Yello). There are many words and lines I don't hear clearly so I'd love to have lyrics to read while listening, but no such luck. No sign of the lyrics on the internet either.

What if we Yello fans made a project out of this; to write the lyrics song by song and build a kind of library?

Here's my writing of The Expert fx.:

I know you're gonna do it with an easy touch,
Knowledge that you believe*.
I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.

I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.

I know you're gonna do it with an easy touch,
Knowledge that you believe*.
I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.

I know you're gonna do it with an easy touch,
Knowledge that you believe*.
I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.

She is sexy, she is fine, and she is nice and tall,
she is witty, she is pretty, and she got it all.

I know you're gonna do it with an easy touch,
Knowledge that you believe*.
I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.

I know you're gonna do it with an easy touch,
Knowledge that you believe*.
I know you're never, ever gonna feel ashamed,
You're knowledgable, nasty, expert in the game.


This is how I hear the text. The only parts where I was truly unsure what Dieter says is where I marked *, I think I hear 'love is such' in there though.

I’ve been putting up lyrics here: http://www.theyellosite.com/index.php/words/
But I think there are many mistakes there.

Is it just a coincidence that none of those lyrics are from newer albums than Pocket Universe? Seeing the absence of lyrics on the internet as a whole makes me think there is a legal issue involved.

LYRICS (from греч. lyrikos - said under lyre sounds), a sort literary (along with the epos, a drama), which subject of display - the maintenance of an internal life, own "I" of the poet, and the speech form - internal

The philosophical lyrics are poems in which basis meditations about meaning of the life and eternal human values have laid down.

At each person, the understanding of lyrics.

Well, yes, but the words themselves are definite and I'm interested to know them, otherwise I can't really make a personal interpretation of them. :P

No doubt! It's great idea! English is not my native language so sometimes I have difficulties to catch the lyrics. For me it's easy to get Dieter's or Boris's singing but I got only 50% of Jade Davis's (The Eye).
Please post "Time Palace" :) and "You better hide" too :) :)
P.S. that's my version of "The Expert" 's line:
........
You're knowledgeable MASTER, expert of the game.

TIME PALACE

A breeze of atmosphere,
a fountain of our lives.

As clouds
cross with time.
An endless tide
will sway.
Sacred notes will sound,
imaginations open wide.

Somebody said it's best when
it's hard to find
the things we leave behind.

I look up to the skies,
voices in my mind.
As clouds
cross with time.
An endless tide
will sway.
Sacred notes will sound.
Imaginations open wide.

Somebody said it's only voices
in my mind.
The things we leave behind.

Somebody said it's best when
it's hard to find
the things we leave behind.



YOU BETTER HIDE

You know I
have never been honest to you.
I'm sorry.
You know I
have never been honest to you.
I'm sorry.

You better hide from me.
You better hide from me,
before I,
before I,
tell you the truth.
Hide from me.

I planned on letting you know,
but I always was afraid
of losing you.
And now my words are gone.
I've lost them too.
Hide from me.


As for The Expert, I don't think it can be the word 'master' because Dieter ends the word with a '-y' sound, not '-er'.

Just awesome!!! Bjossi, thank you very much!
I think we should ask julz to post it on "theyellosite"
It would be great 'cause there are no lyrics from "the eye" in the Internet.
I'm going to listen the eye again :))) :D

Now all listen to the music absolutely different, whether but all pay attention to lyrics? Now it became the big rarity, a song with good implied sense, such which forces you задуматся though for a minute... Sometimes the most popular songs have rather poor sense, and it is sad, after all it is not enough one melody and rhythm, that the song was good...
And there are at you such songs as which you consider as the? Which approach you which are written as if about you? Lyrics... Songs which you can listen for hours and hours... Personally for me it... :roll: :shock: :?

The race
Beyond Mirrors
Magnetic
Jingle Bells
Rubberbandman
Of Course I'm Lying
L'Hotel
AND MANY OTHER THINGS. :wink:

You're welcome, Ilya Petrov. 8)
Next up:

OUT OF DAWN

You're shaking me softly,
turn me up side down,
you're the queen of my emotion,
your invisible crown.
Invisible crown
as your beatutiful mind,
you're driving me crazy,
you're one of a kind.
You give me pleasure,
shakes,
desire.
You give me shivers,
love
and drive.

I wanna be with you
till the end of time.
And you will always fly,
you'll never be mine.
And when I see you smile,
it's like a distant light.
Fear of your fading love.

You're shaking me softly,
turn me upside down,
you're the queen of the lonely,
your invisible crown.
Invisible crown,
as your beautiful mind,
you're driving me crazy,
you're one of a kind.
You give me pleasure,
shakes,
desire.

I wanna be with you
till the end of time.
And you will always fly,
you'll never be mine.
And when I see you smile,
it's like a distant light.
Fear of your fading love.

You're shaking me softly,
turn me up side down,
you're the queen of my emotion,
your invisible crown.
Invisible crown
as your beatutiful mind,
you're driving me crazy,
you're one of a kind.
You give me pleasure,
shakes,
desire.

I wanna be with you
till the end of time.
And you will always fly,
you'll never be mine.
And when I see you smile,
it's like a distant light.
Fear of your fading love.



KISS IN BLUE (not 100% complete)

The secrets you keep from me,
will I ever know?
This life you live inside,
will it ever show?
Tonight you're mine,
tomorrow another.

When love
is ruling my world.
When love is now moving my heart.
My days are not the same.
When I'm with you
I live in my dream.
I know it's true.
I'm adoring your smile,
your eyes are a kiss in blue.

*
telling me when.
Will they ever end?
**
would you still pretend?
Tonight you're mine,
tomorrow another.

When I'm with you
I live in my dream.
I know it's true.
I'm adoring your smile,
your eyes are a kiss in blue.



* - I think I hear 'The stories' at first, next word sounds like 'young' but that can't really fit.
** - I can't really make any sense out of this line. First word(s ) sounds a bit like 'Although' but it could be 'If x' too, x being some word after 'If'.
Help with these two would be great. ;)

The big place is occupied here with the love lyrics presented mainly in the form of a song.



Drive/Driven

© Yello

Tonight you gotta look in my eyes
You got it, you drive me out of my mind

Chorus:
Drive, driven
Gave, given
It's dangerous to stay
And I say
Drive, driven
Gave, given
I gave myself away

You drive me crazy
You're lazy
Calling my name
You drive me crazy
You're lazy
Out of my mind
'Cause you're a diva
I'm a believer

Tonight, you gotta give me a number
of games
You got it, you gotta give me a number
of names

Chorus:

Свожу, схожу

yello

Сегодня ты заглянешь в мои глаза,
Ты знаешь как свести меня с ума.

Припев:
Свожу, схожу,
Даю, отдаюсь…
Становится всё опаснее.
Пожалуй…
Свожу, схожу,
Даю, отдаюсь…
Забываю обо всём.

Я теряю от тебя разум,
А ты как будто не торопишься,
Позвать меня…
Я теряю от тебя разум,
А ты как будто этого не замечаешь,
Я уже ничего не соображаю.
Ты - небесное создание,
А я - твой раб.

Сегодня ты крутишь мною как
тебе захочется.
Ты знаешь как заставить меня раскрыться
полностью.

Припев:

Here's my version of this verse:

Those stories you're telling me
When will they ever end
If I would stop the game now
Then would you still pretend
Tonight you're mine, tomorrow another's
When somehow you open my eyes
You will be gone

I've posted my version of the lyrics of all the tracks of Touch Yello on the mailing list (you can see the post here - http://mailman.xmission.com/lurker/mess ... ed.en.html ) - feel free to make corrections!

Honestly speaking, I have never experience that unclear lines while I was watching song lyrics. Maybe there are a problem on your internet connection. Or on the site where you find that lyrics?

The lyrics I put up were from what I heard from the CD. There are no official lyrics available, so internet connections are not the problem, just my ears (if there are any errors).
