A brand new day

"Brand New Day"

How many of you people out there
Been hurt in some kind of love affair
And how many times do you swear that you'll never love again?

How many lonely, sleepless nights
How many lies, how many fights
And why would you want to put yourself through all that again?

"Love is pain," I hear you say
Love has a cruel and bitter way
Of paying you back for all the faith you ever had in your brain

How could it be that what you need the most
Can leave you feeling just like a ghost?
You never want to feel so sad and lost again

One day you could be looking
Through an old book in rainy weather
You see a picture of her smiling at you
When you were still together
You could be walking down the street
And who should you chance to meet
But that same old smile that you've been thinking of all day

You can turn the clock to zero, honey
I'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money
We're starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock all the way back
I wonder if she'll take me back
I'm thinking in a brand new way

Turn the clock to zero, sister
You'll never know how much I missed her
Starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock to zero, boss
The river's wide, we'll swim across
Started up a brand new day


Sevgililer gununuz kutlu olsun!

Sevgilisi olanın olmayanın,

Olup da yok gibi olanın,

Yok da var gibi olanın,

Olmayıp çok isteyenin,

Oluyo da noluyo diyenin,

Olduğu için çok mutlu olanın,

Olmadığı için çok mutlu olanın,

Onsuz olamayanın,

Onunla hiç olamayanın,

Herşeye rağmen yüreğinde her daim aşka yer olanın…

O zaman kısacası herkesin sevgililer günü kutlu olsun.

Sevgi hep sizinle olsun, yüreğinizde aşka hep yer olsun.

Meet the Artists

represents both where flamenco comes from and where it’s going”—New York Times

Flamenco singer-dancer Estrella Morente is “about as much pop-culture royalty as you can be in Spain” (New York Times). Known in this country for her performance of the title song from Pedro Almodóvar’s recent film Volver, “her physical authority is at one with her amazing voice … a tough act to follow” (Guardian).
Here is a famous song by Estralla's wonderful voice:

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song,
As we go along,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

He'll say: Are you married?
We'll say: No man,
But you can do the job
When you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire,
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid,
The plans that we've made,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
And pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
Until the other kids knock him down.

When it snows, ain't it thrilling,
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Richard B. Smith (1901-1935)
