Since the guys have started the promotions for their new album and we're already getting to hear (and see) some of the songs, we opened this thread.

Please post any lyrics or translations into this thread so we can keep them all together wink.gif

Thks Es for the Thread...to start with it...

AMAZING GRACE
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.



Was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.



Through many dangers, toils and snares...
that we have already come.
This was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.



The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.



When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.



Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.


THE POWER OF LOVE ( La Fuerza Mayor)
Yo te protegeré de tus miedos
Soy tu príncipe azul
Angel del cielo no hay más que temer

Hoy como ayer, siempre me va s a tener
Solo importa tu amor, dámelo
Aquí estoy.

La fuerza mayor está en el amor
Es interior
La meta es darlo, de veras mostrarlo
Sin razón…con el corazón.

Te prometo que te cuidará
Y para amarte solo viveré
Cuando triste estés ahí estaré
Con este inmenso amor que yo siento por ti
Y nunca engañarás
Tú serás lo único.

La fuerza mayor está en el amor
Es interior
La meta es darlo, de veras mostrarlo
Sin razón…con el corazón.

Amar es comprensión
Es dar completo el corazón
Es besarnos …..perdonarnos
Es un tesoro, un gran regalo
Solo importa tu amor, dámelo
Aquí estoy.

La fuerza mayor está en el amor
Es interior
La meta es darlo, de veras mostrarlo
Sin razón…con el corazón.

La meta es darlo
De veras mostrarlo
Con el corazón
La fuerza mayor
Es interior
La meta es darlo
De veras mostrarlo
Sin razón
Con el….corazón.


ADAGIO ( ITALIAN)

Non so dove trovarti
Non so come cercarti
Ma sento una voce che
Nel vento parla di te
Quest'anima senza cuore
Aspetta te
Adagio

Le notti senza pelle
I sogni senza stelle
Immagini del tuo viso
Che passano all'improvviso
Mi fanno sperare ancora
Che ti trovero'
Adagio

Chiudo gli occhi e vedo te
Trovo il cammino che
Mi porta via
Dall'agonia
Sento battere in me
Questa musica che
Ho inventato per te

Se sai come trovarmi
Se sai dove cercarmi
Abbracciami con la mente
Il sole mi sembra spento
Accendi il tuo nome in cielo
Dimmi che ci sei
Quello che vorrei
Vivere in te

Il sole mi sembra spento
Abbracciami con la mente
Smarrita senza di te
Dimmi chi sei e ci credero'
Musica sei
Adagio

Ok.....we did our best...and with the hlep of one online translator....maybe some other diva can do this better than us.... wink.gif wink.gif



I will protect you from your fears
I am your charming prince
Angel of heaven there is more to fear




Today as yesterday, you will always going to have me
The only thing that matters is your love, Give me it to me
Here I am.




The major force is in love
is interior
The goal is to give it, to really show it
without reason ... with the heart.



I promise you that I will take care of you
And I will live just to love you
When you're sad there I will be
With this huge love that I feel for you
And you never deceive
you will be the only one.



The major force is in love
is interior
The goal is to give it, to really show it
without reason ... with the heart.


To love is understanding
Is to give your complete heart
Its to kiss , to forgive ... ..
It is a treasure, a great gift
The only thing that matters is your love, Give me it to me
Here I am.


The major force is in love
is interior
The goal is to give it, to really show it
without reason ... with the heart.



The goal is to give it
Really show it
With the heart
The major force is interior
The goal is to give it
Really show it
Without reason
With the .... Heart.



And again sowy....our english is not the best

kisses

I have found the english versions of the songs from the Promise and hopefully since I am indicating who the lyrics are by should help in case there is an error in which one they will be performing.

The Power Of Love lyrics (English Version)I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Feels like fire
I'm so in love with you
Dreams are like angels
They keep bad at bay-bad at bay
Love is the light
Scaring darkness away-yeah

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

[1]-The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I'll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you

Envy will hurt itself
Let yourself be beautiful
Sparkling love, flowers
And pearls and pretty girls
Love is like an energy
Rushin' rushin' inside of me

[Repeat 1]

This time we go sublime
Lovers entwine-divine divine
Love is danger, love is pleasure
Love is pure-the only treasure

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
The power of love
A force from above
A sky-scraping dove

Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Hijo De La Luna lyrics (Spanish Version)Tonto el que no entienda.
Cuenta una leyenda
Que una hembra gitana
Conjuró a la luna
Hasta el amanecer.
Llorando pedía
Al llegar el día
Desposar un calé.

"Tendrás a tu hombre,
Piel morena,"
Desde el cielo
Habló la luna llena.
"Pero a cambio quiero
El hijo primero
Que le engendres a él.
Que quien su hijo inmola
Para no estar sola
Poco le iba a querer."

Estribillo:
Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer
Que te haga mujer.
Dime, luna de plata,
Qué pretendes hacer
Con un niño de piel.
A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha,
Hijo de la luna.

De padre canela
Nació un niño
Blanco como el lomo
De un armiño,
Con los ojos grises
En vez de aceituna --
Niño albino de luna.
"¡Maldita su estampa!
Este hijo es de un payo
Y yo no me lo callo."
Estribillo
Gitano al creerse deshonrado,
Se fue a su mujer,
Cuchillo en mano.
"¿De quien es el hijo?
Me has engañado fijo."
Y de muerte la hirió.
Luego se hizo al monte
Con el niño en brazos
Y allí le abandono.
Estribillo
Y en las noches
Que haya luna llena
Será porque el niño
Esté de buenas.
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para hacerle una cuna.
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para hacerle una cuna.

[English translation:]Foolish who doesn't understand
Tells a legend
That a gypsy woman
Conjured to the moon until sunrise
Crying she was asking
Coming the day
To marry a gypsy man

You you have your man of dark skin
From heaven spoke the full moon
But in return I want
The first son
That you beget from him
Whoever sacrifices his son
Not to be alone
Would barely love him

[Chorus:]
Moon wants to be mother
And you don't find a lover
Who can make you woman
Tell me silver moon
what do you expect to do
with a kid of skin
Son of the moon

From a cinnamon father a boy was born
White as the back of an ermine
With the eyes grey
Instead of olive
Albino boy of moon
Damn his stamp
This son is from a non-gipsy
And I won't shut up

[Chorus]
Gypsy man believing himself dishonored
Went to his woman knife in hand
Who's son is this?
You've cheated on me permanently
And he hurted her to dead
Then he went to the mount
With the kid in his arms
And he abandoned him there

[Chorus]
And in the nights with full moon
It will be because the kid is in a good mood
And if the boy cries
The moon will lessen
To make him a cradle
And if the boy cries
The moon will lessen
To make him a cradle



"SHE" LYRICS FROM NOTTHING HILL BY ELVIS COSTELLO (ENGLISH VERSION)
She
May be the face I can't forget.
A trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay.
She may be the song that summer sings.
May be the chill that autumn brings.
May be a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day.

She
May be the beauty or the beast.
May be the famine or the feast.
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell.
She may be the mirror of my dreams.
A smile reflected in a stream
She may not be what she may seem
Inside her shell

She who always seems so happy in a crowd.
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud
No one's allowed to see them when they cry.
She may be the love that cannot hope to last
May come to me from shadows of the past.
That I remember till the day I die

She
May be the reason I survive
The why and wherefore I'm alive
The one I'll care for through the rough and rainy years
Me I'll take her laughter and her tears
And make them all my souvenirs
For where she goes I've got to be
The meaning of my life is

She, she, oooohh she



ADAGIO (ENGLISH)
I do not know where you are
I do not know how to seek you
But I hear a voice that
The wind speaks to you
This soul heartless
Awaits you
Adagio

The nights without skin
Dreams without stars
Pictures of your face
Passing suddenly
I do hope yet
You trovero '
Adagio

I close my eyes and I see you
I find the path
Leads me away
Dall'agonia
I feel beat me
This music
I invented for you

If you know how to find me
If you know where to look
Abbracciami with the mind
The sun seems off
Turn your name in the sky
Tell me that ci sei
What I want
Living in you

The sun seems off
Abbracciami with the mind
Lost without you
Tell me who you are and we believe '
Music six
Adagio





[b]BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER LYRICS
ARTIST: SIMON AND GARFUNKEL (ENGLISH)[/b]
When you're weary; feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side oh when times get rough
And friends just can't be found.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out;
when you're on the street;
when evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I'll take your part
oh when darkness comes.
And pain is all around.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silvergirl;
sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
Oh if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.


ABBA LYRICS FOR THE WINNER TAKES IT ALL (ENGLISH VERSION)

I don't wanna talk about things we've gone through
Though it's hurting me, now it's history
I've played all my cards and that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say, no more ace to play
The winner takes it all, the loser standing small
Beside the victory, that's her destiny
I was in your arms, thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense, building me a fence
Building me a home, thinking I'd be strong there
But I was a fool, playing by the rules
The gods may throw a dice, their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here, loses someone dear
The winner takes it all, the loser has to fall
It's simple and it's plain, why should I complain
But tell me does she kiss, like I used to kiss you
Does it feel the same, when she calls your name
Somewhere deep inside you must know I miss you
But what can I say, rules must be obeyed
The judges will decide, the likes of me abide
Spectators of the show, always staying low
The game is on again, a lover or a friend
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all
I don't wanna talk if it makes you feel sad
And I understand, you've come to shake my hand
I apologize if it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense, no self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all





LEONARD COHEN LYRICS FOR “HALLELUJAH" (ENGLISH VERSION)Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah


LA LUNA (RICK NOWELS/ELLEN SHIPLEY)
I remember when I met you
All the stars were hanging in mid-air
In these moments - nothing mattered
But the way you caught me in your stare
We were walking - we were talking
We were laughing about the state of our lives
How our fates brought us together
As the moon was rising in your eyes

On and on the night was falling
Deep down inside us
On and on a light was shining right through

Ah La Luna La Luna
The night that we fell under the spell of the moon
Ah La Luna La Luna
The light that will being me back to you
The light of La Luna

In the hotels, in the cafes
All the world was made with romance
In the harbor moonlit water
All the ships were swaying in a dance
Then you held me and you kissed me
And I knew I had to be with you
You didn't ask me you just took me
to the tiny bed in your tiny room

On and on the band was playing
A song of surrender
On and on the sun would soon break thru

Now I walk along the streets of Marseilles
the winter sky is cold and gray
and I don't know why I left you that day
And I don't know where you are

If these are not correct, MODS please feel free to delete or move.

Thanks.

This is an approximate translation of the above lyrics, it makes sense but please tell me if I have anything totally wrong.

HALLELUJAH

A soldier returns home today
And a sick boy is cured
Today there is no work in the forest
Between the showers of rain
An abandoned man saves himself
Because of a good act
And today no one condemns him, halleluya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

An atheist can now believe
And a hungry man today has food,
And today a fortune was donated to a church
So that the war would soon be finished
That in the world peace would reign in the end
That no one will have any misery, halleluya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Because the usual custom is love
And corruption does not rule
But the good and the power of the pure soul
Because God protects us from a bad end
Because one day we can learn lessons
Because we must end so much fury, halleluya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah

Adagio


[Italian Version]
[EnglishTranslation]

(As sung by Lara Fabian)

I don’t know where to find you
I don’t know how to reach you
I hear your voice in the wind
I feel you under my skin (or "that brings me a touch of hint")
Within my heart and my soul
I wait for you
Adagio (or "I love you" or "I need you")

All of these nights without you
All of my dreams surround you
I see and I touch your face
I fall into your embrace
When the time is right, I know
You'll be in my arms
Adagio (or "I love you" or "I need you")

I close my eyes and I find a way
No need for me to pray
I’ve walked so far
I've fought so hard
Nothing more to explain
I know all that remains
Is a piano that plays

If you know where to find me
If you know how to reach me
Before this light fades away
Before I run out of faith
Be the only man (or "one") to say
That you'll hear my heart
That you'll give your life
Forever you'll stay

Don't let this light fade away
No No No No No No
Don't let me run out of faith
Be the only man (or "one") to say
That you believe
Make me believe
You won't let go
Adagio (or "I love you" or "I need you")

My favorite song of the album...one of my favorite songs ever.......sad and joyful at the same time! Urs really felt it and so did Sebastien. A gem! Just for this song , it is worth getting the album!

LEONARD COHEN LYRICS




"Hallelujah"

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

thanks Alaina

Those are interesting English lyrics although I can't say I like them much. The Spanish version the guys sing is quite different but I can see it would be almost impossible to directly translate the English lyrics for both this and the Power of Love.
