Hallelujah (Cover) (Leonard Cohen; 4 verses)

05-11-2014

Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen, originally released on album Various Positions--1984) . Vocals, vocal arrangement, video, art, Michele Baron
Lyrics:
Well, I heard there was a secret chord, that David sang,
and it pleased the Lord;
but you don't really care for music, do ya?
Well, it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth... the minor fall, and
the major lift... the baffled King, composing hallelujah...

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof;
you saw her bathing on the roof;
her beauty, and the moonlight overthrew ya.
You tied her to the kitchen chair, and you broke her throne, and
you cut her hair; and from her lips, you drew the hallelujah...

Well, maybe there's a God above, but all I ever learned from love was how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya...
and it's not a cry that you hear at night,
and it's not somebody who's seen the light;
it's a cold, and it's a broken hallelujah...

I did my best, though it wasn't much,
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch;
I never lied; I never tried to fool ya;
and even if it all goes wrong,
I'll stand before the Lord of Song with nothing on my tongue but
hallelujah...
hallelujah...

D'amor sull'ali rosee (Il Trovatore, G. Verdi, composer)

D'amor sull'ali rosee (Giuseppe Verdi, Il Trovatore) Michele Baron, soprano, art, video
Lyrics:
Timor di me? ... sicura, Presta è la mia difesa.
In questoscura
Notte ravvolta, presso a te son io,
E tu nol sai Gemente
Aura che intorno spiri,
Deh, pietosa gli arreca i miei sospiri
Damor sullali rosee
Vanne, sospir dolente:
Del prigioniero misero
Conforta legra mente
Comaura di speranza
Aleggia in quella stanza:
Lo desta alle memorie,
Ai sogni dellamor!
Ma deh! non dirgli, improvvido,
Le pene del mio cor!

Fear for me? ... my protection is secure and ready...
Shrouded in this dark night,
I am near you, and you do not know it...
Moaning wind, you who blow here, ah,
mercifully,
take my sighs to him...

On the rosy wings of love,
go, oh, mournful sigh;
comfort the flagging spirits of the wretched prisoner.
Like a breath of hope, flutter in that room;
waken in him the memories,
the dreams, the dreams of love.
But, pray, don't imprudently tell him
of the pangs, the pangs which wrack my heart!

Lyrics:
V'adoro, pupille, saette d'amore;
le vostre faville son grate nel sen.
Pietose vi brama... il mesto mio core,
ch'ogn'ora vi chiama, l'amato suo ben...
V'adoro, pupille, saette d'amore;
le vostre faville son grate nel sen

(I adore you, eyes, lightning bolts of love;
your sparks are welcome in my breast.
My sad heart desires you (to be) compassionate,

I Can't Make You Love Me (Cover)

24-10-2014

I Can't Make You Love Me (Cover; Bonnie Raitt, Luck of the Draw; Composers Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin) ; Art, Vocals, Video, Michele Baron
Lyrics:

Turn down the lights, turn down the bed,
Turn down these voices inside my head.
Lay down with me; tell me no lies.
Just hold me closely; don't patronize...
Don't patronize me...

'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't.
You can't make your heart feel something it won't.
Here in the dark, in these final hours,
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power;
But you won't... no, you won't.
'Cause I can't make you love me ... if you don't.

I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love you don't feel, when you're holding me.
Morning will come, and I'll do what's right;
Just give me 'till then to give up this fight...
And I will give up this fight.

'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't.
You can't make your heart feel something it won't.
Here in the dark, in these final hours,
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power;
But you won't... no, you won't.
'Cause I can't make you love me ... if you don't.
... if you don't...

Are We Only

11-10-2014

Original Composition. Words, Music, Art, Michele Baron.
Lyrics:
Are they only fools, who hope to touch the hearts of those who walk alone?
Only dreamers, who would help lift troubles that are heavier than stone?
Are they fools, who hope to help the hearts who walk in such great pain?
We have fought for such a long, long time; are our hopes for peace in vain?

Are they only fools who seek to break the chains of fear, and need, and hunger?
Only fools, who wonder if the sun will rise, or if dawn will break with thunder?
We build walls of fear, fight wars with hate, hide from storms that never cease
Even if it takes a long, long time, could we start to live in peace?

We share the water, and the sky, the mountains and the plains;
The same sun shines for all the earth, can we work for peace again?

Are we only fools
to see this world of strife, and thirst for something new?
Are we only fools to see this chance to change, and hope our dreams come true?
on this world we share, walk in peace,
Walk in peace Walk in peace
