Näitä ulisen yksin kotona

Laulaminen on mukavaa, kunhan saa ulvoa ja ulista itsekseen omassa rauhassa. Mikään, ei niin mikään, ollut koulussa yhtä pelottavaa kuin laulukokeet! Muistan miten mulla oli ala-asteella jo viikkoa ennen laulukoetta vatsa kipeänä, kun jännitti niin maan perkeleesti. En muista enää mitä päädyin laulamaan, mutta häkellyin kuin kokeesta napsahti arvosanaksi ysi. Se jää ikuiseksi mysteeriksi, lauloinko oikeasti ysin edestä, vai olinko vaan niin kauhusta kankeana, ettei opettaja tohtinut antaa täysin rehellistä arvioita...? 😕 Seiskalle mennessä ei niinkään pelottanut uusi rakennus, uudet opettajat, uudet luokkakaverit ja mahdolliset uudet kiusaajat, vaan tieto siitä että jossain vaiheessa on taas laulettava. Stressasin asiaa valtavasti, mutta hähää! Jotenkin mä siitä kokeesta luistin. En muista, saiko vaihtoehtoisesti soittaa soitinta, vai olinko mä tai opettaja sairaana... niin tai näin, koskaan en joutunut laulamaan.

Karaokea oon laulanut kerran tai pari parhaiden ystävieni kanssa - ja silloinkin parodiasanoituksilla. Lumi teki enkelin eteiseen ja Kesäviini taipuvat kuulkaas aika monenlaisiin tarinoihin. Parodiaan kuuluu toki oleellisena osana äänen vääntely, joten "laulaminen" muiden kuullen ei ahdistanut siinä tilanteessa. Muutoin minä en julkisesti laula. Se on privabisnestä jos jokin. Oon se ilonpilaaja, joka ei kotibileissä tartu mikkiin singstarin merkeissä tai laula muiden mukana juhlissa. Ei tule sellaista humalaa, jossa mut saataisiin houkuteltua mikrofonin äärelle. Ihan jo sekin on hirveetä, kun välillä yrittää kuvailla tiettyä biisiä, ja pitäisi uskaltaa hyräillä pikkuinen ääninäyte.

Silloin kun mulla tekee mieli verrytellä äänijänteitä, muunmuassa seuraavat biisit tuntuvat helpoilta ja ovat luontevia luritella. Varsinkin Watskyn Hey asshole on sellainen, jota tulee vinguttua jopa accapellana; hey asshole, see the sun is shining, but you are not smiling and I don't know why and I don't know why. Tarttuvat lyriikat! Kuten puhuessa, laulaessakin mulla usein on ongelmana ettei ääntä meinaa lähteä, ja pitää oikein tietoisesti kaivaa se volyymi kurkusta ulos. On maailman surkein yhdistelmä olla persoonaltansa hiljainen hiirulainen, ja siihen päälle vielä kilpirauhassairas joka käheyttää ja vaimentaa ääntä entisestään. 70-vuotiaana musta ei varmaan saa enää mitään selvää. 😉



I've got a Dungeon Master's guide
I've got a 12-sided die
I've got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler, too
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

I've got posters on the wall
My favorite rock group KISS
I've got Ace Frehley
I've got Peter Criss
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage, where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage

I've got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage, in the garage

In the garage, I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me sing this song

In the garage, I feel safe
No one laughs about my ways
In the garage where I belong
No one hears me, no one hears me
No one hears me, no one hears me
No one hears me sing this song

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away (as I walk away)
Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone

I don't want to destroy your tank-top
Let's be friends and just walk away
It's good to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone





When I am down, and, oh, my soul, so weary
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up to more than I can be




Hey, asshole
See the sun is shining
But you are not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why

I'm an asshole
Cause the sun is shining
But I am not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why

I know I'm often told
That there's a pot of gold
But I don't see no fucking rainbow and my coffee's cold
I know I should be grateful
I know I'm good and able
But I don't have the strength to get up from the kitchen table
This kind of shot comes once
Another opportunity of a lifetime just slipped away
And that's the fifth this month
but when you take a punch
Don't you ever forget
Why you get up and you put one foot in front of the next

Got the power of my will
I don't wanna win a mil
But I'm looking at window sill
Gotta take a bitter pill
Gonna pay for what I did to my head and my heart'll foot the bill
Got a foot in my mouth and because I'm kicking myself I developed
A habit of knocking out my front tooth
Looking uncouth
Want to hear the truth
Give it to me straight
151 proof
Telling myself it'll happen when I'm happy
But I'm climbing up a ladder that has got no end
Hung up on a rung I'll never make it to the top
I'm looking at the bottom and I must descend
All I want to do is buck this trend
Everybody need a buck to spend
And I'll be working on myself, til I work on someone else
Til I get there Ima just pretend

I know I'm often told
That there's a pot of gold
But I don't see a fucking rainbow and my coffee's cold
I know I should be grateful
I know I'm good and able
But I don't have the strength to get up from the kitchen table
This kind of shot comes once
Another opportunity of a lifetime just slipped away
And that's the fifth this month
but when you take a punch
Don't you ever forget
Why you get up and you put one foot in front of the next

[Chorus:]
Hey, asshole
See the sun is shining
But you are not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why

I'm an asshole
Cause the sun is shining
But I am not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why

When I'm in a crisis
In a moment of silence
I look under my eyelids
And I'm checking my mileage
I been using a pool of water as a mirror but not for style it's
So I can reach in and pimpslap my reflection for acting childish
Spent a half an hour sitting at the bottom of my shower
Lettin the water run over my body and dammit I wanted to get up
But I didn't have the power
I don't have the answers anyway yay (yay yay yay)
Don't want to panic but I gotta come clean
because the plan of the planet is just mean
Knew if was tough, but dammit it's obscene
I've been huffing and puffing up to the top of the summit
And I'ma rough it if I have enough steam
I'll keep on coming and coming until I'm coming with the stamina of a salmon
Who's heading upstream (nah nah nah nah nah)

[Chorus (x2):]
Hey, asshole
See the sun is shining
But you are not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why

I'm an asshole
Cause the sun is shining
But I am not smiling
And I don't know why
And I don't know why
And I don't know why






Carried away on the staircase,
Carried away through the grey old gates,
Carried away in a world you chose,
Carried away in other’s shoes.
Snap you off and you’re not even there,
Carry away or you’ll lose your head.
Carried away in the quiet night,
Twilight swifts to the morning light,
Carried away through the thin shape,
Carried away ‘till your palms burn.
Carried away like you thought of something,
Someone will come and carry you in return.
And you lose just who you are
When the wave crashes your heart.
And it hurts with every step,
How you wish you’d be someone else
Just for a while.
Carried away from nine to seven,
Carry our shifts since nine to seven,
Carry away just to feel alive,
Carry that shit, just you exist.

And if they stop you off you’re gonna fuck them up.
Carried away ‘cause the others won,
Carried away ‘till their head come off,
Carry away ‘till the earth shakes,
Carry away ‘till the world burns.
Carry away before you know they know
I will never pay back and carry yours in return.
And you lose just who you are
When the wave crashes your heart.
And it hurts with every step,
How you wish to be someone else.
And it hurts with every step,
How you wish to be someone else, just for a while.
And you lose just who you are
When the wave crushes your heart.
And you lose just who you are, just who you are.
And it hurts with every step how you wish to be someone else
And it hurts with every step how you wish to be someone else,
Just for a while, just for a while, just for a while. 






The universe is talking through your mouth
But nobody knows what it says.
Come closer, don’t drift away,
The stars lie to you, ‘bout you to your grace.
And you will find a second soul,
The kind you can mix with your own.
And you will find a second soul
To run around, you’ll never be alone.
A satellite slowly to the sun
Rolls and makes the views.
Are you tired searching the place
Where you belong, where you belong, where you belong?
And you will find a second soul, 
The kind you can mix with your own.
And you will find a second soul
To run around, you’ll never be alone.
To run around, you’ll never be alone.
And you will find a second soul,
The kind you can mix with your own.
And you will find a second soul,
To run around, you’ll never be alone.
And you will find a second soul,
The kind you can mix with your own.
And you will find a second soul,
To run around, you’ll never be alone.
To run around, you’ll never be alone. 




Not even they can stop me now
Boy, I'll be flying overhead
Their heavy words can't bring me down
Boy I've been raised from the dead

No one even knows how hard life was
I don't even think about it now because
I've finally found you
Oh, sing it to me

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like a vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar venom oh yeah
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

American dreams came true somehow
I swore I'd chase until I was dead
I heard the streets were paved with gold
That's what my father said

No one even knows what life was like
Now I'm in LA and it's paradise
I've finally found you
Oh, sing it to me

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
Baby love me cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like a vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar venom oh yeah
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

(On the radio)
Sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

(On the radio)
Sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
I've finally found you
(Oh, sing it to me)

Now my life is sweet like cinnamon
Like a fucking dream I'm living in
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like a vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar venom oh yeah
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio

Like a fucking dream I'm living in
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)

Pick me up and take me like a vitamin
'Cause my body's sweet like sugar venom oh yeah
Baby love me 'cause I'm playing on the radio
(How do you like me now?)





I won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if i do, i'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you.

'Member how we used to escape for the summer?
Fireworks and sparkles would light up the black skies.
We'd hold on tight for our lives to each other.

Hello, hello, where did you go?
We were two kids living life on the run, like the american dream, baby!
Nothing to lose and we'd get messed up for fun.
We went too fast, too young.

But i won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if i do, i'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you, damn you.

Flowers in my hair and your breath smelled like whiskey.
Promised anywhere that i'd go, take you with me.
Dancing on your feet like a child to the radio.

Hello, hello, where did you go?
We were two kids living life on the run, love the american dream, baby!
Nothing to lose and we'd get messed up for fun.
We went too fast, too young.

But i won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if i do, i'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you, damn you, damn you, damn you.

Every once in a lifetime, dreams can come true.
Now when the stars shine, you meet somebody like you.

But i won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if i do, i'll die.
I pray you're life is sweet, you ****er, damn you, damn you, damn you.





A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same.
All the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreamin' of your face.

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl, it's only you and me.

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go.

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, it's only you and me.

Everything I know, and anywhere I go,
It gets hard but it won't take away my love.
And when the last one falls, when its all said and done.
It gets hard but it won't take away my love.

I'm here without you baby
But you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, it's only you and me.




En kanna kaunaa enkä kaipaa tänne koskaan
kun äiti kuolee, lähden viimein kaupunkiin
En muista niitä, jotka nyt mua hieroo paskaan
jos laitan silmät kiinni, nousen taivaisiin
Ne huutaa raivoissaan: “Ei, mies ei toimi noin!”
Kauneus kai loukkaa niitä, minkä sille voin
Ja ruumistani täällä vaikka pilkataan
sieluuni koskea ei voi milloinkaan
Vaatteeni, joille irvaillen ihmiset nauraa
ja höyhenpuuhka, jota nyt niin halveksitaan
tarvitsee siellä vielä lisää kimaltavaa
tai muuten hukun massaan monenkirjavaan
Eivätkä ruuhkaan juutu perheautot vain
vaan linja-autot, limusiinit rinnakkain
Joskus voin mennä vuorille vain katsomaan
alhaalla illoin hehkuvaa maisemaa
En niele tuskaa, vaan shamppanjaa virtanaan
verhoudun paljetteihin päästä varpaisiin
Minä tunnen kaikki
ja tietenkin minut tunnetaan
valokeila aina osuu tähden askeliin
Ei pilkkaa suut
ei nouse sormi yksikään
En enää pelkää
etten ketään löydäkään
ja linnun lailla kerran nousen korkeimpaan
ruumiini vanki koskaan en ollutkaan
