Con te partiro

This is possibly one of the best songs in the entire history of the universe. It is "Con te partiro" (which means "I'll go with you") sung by Andrea Bocelli:

Quando sono solo
sogno all'orizzonte
e mancan le parole
si lo so che non c'è luce
in una stanza quando manca il sole
se non ci sei tu con me, con me
Su le finestre
mostra a tutti il mio cuore
che hai acceso
chiudi dentro me
la luce che
hai incontrato per strada

Con te partirò
paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te
adesso si li vivrò
con te partirò
su navi per mari
che io lo so
no no non esistono più
con te io li vivrò

Quando sei lontana
sogna all'orizzonte
e mancan le parole
e io si lo soche sei con me, con me
tu mia luna tu sei qui con me
mio sole tu sei qui con me con me
con me con me

Con te partirò
paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te
adesso sì le vivrò
con te partirò
su navi per mari
che io lo so
no no non esistono più
con te io li rivivrò
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che io lo so
no no non esistono più
con te io li rivivrò
con te partirò
Io con te

Though the Italian lyrics sound much better, here is their translation in case you wanted it:

When I'm alone
I dream on the horizon
and words fail;
yes, I know there is no light
in a room
where the sun is not there
if you are not with me.
At the windows
show everyone my heart
which you set alight;
enclose within me
the light you
encountered on the street.

I'll go with you,
to countries I never
saw and shared with you,
now, yes, I shall experience them,
I'll go with you
on ships across seas
which, I know,
no, no, exist no longer;
with you I shall experience them.

When you are far away
I dream on the horizon
and words fail,
and yes, I know
that you are with me;
you, my moon, are here with me,
my sun, you are here with me,
with me, with me, with me,

I'll go with you,
to countries I never
saw and shared with you,
now, yes, I shall experience them,
I'll go with you
on ships across seas
which, I know,
no, no, exist no longer;
with you I shall re-experience them.
I'll go with you
on ships across seas
which, I know,
no, no, exist no longer;
with you I shall re-experience them.
I'll go with you,
I with you.

how can one man be so lazy

Man, I have only been to 3 lectures in the past 2 weeks, and I have 12 every week - I gotta get my act together, I'm gonna try to go to as many lectures as I can this week.

I reckon it's because of how comfortable the beds are, I just don't want to get out of bed in the morning - and so I don't, I usually get up around 3pm. I reckon that's why I go out so much, cos I am never tired in the evening (it's probably leading to where all my money has disappeared to aswell). Perhaps if I go to more lectures I'll be more tired in the evenings and not want to go out - would certainly help me save money. But this still leaves me with the question of what to do in the evenings - I think i'll take up reading, seriously.

Anyway, on a more soul-crushing note, it's Valentine's Day tomorrow - i haven't got anything for anyone, cos I can't think of anyone I would want to give a Valentine to (except Dawsey, but he'd just shout at me). Methinks I should start looking more actively for a girlfriend.


Hmm, I'm in a really upbeat mood today, I'm not sure why. Well, I should wrap this up pretty soon, take care all.

untitled

A woman has a close male friend. This means that he is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She sees him strictly as a friend.

This always starts out with, you're a great guy, but I don't like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying "You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we're not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for comparison for all other applicants. But, we're going to hire somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn't work out, we'll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the person that we hired."

even Hitler had a girlfriend

I still haven't found a girlfriend,
Though i've tried a lot.
So, can you help me please,
It's tougher than i thought.

The odds are pretty good,
but the goods are pretty odd.
Though at this point,
I'll take anything you've got.

I see this all the time,
Nice girls in love with jerks,
What could they be thinking?
Tell me how it works.

If i got some problems,
Well i wouldn't be the first.
But the ones I have in mind are even worse.

And even Hitler had a girlfriend,
Who he could always call,
That would always be there for him
In spite of all his faults
He was the worst guy ever.
reviled and despised,
Even Hitler had a girlfriend
So why can't I?
Why can't I?

Life is full of contradictions
Hard to understand
And for every happy woman,
There's a lonely man

Nixon had his puppy.
Charles Manson had his clan
God forbid that i get a girlfriend.

Even Hitler had a girlfriend
Who he could call his own,
To sweeten days of bitterness,
and feeling all alone

I'm not as bad as Hitler,
But that doesn't mean a thing,
Since they'd rather be with Hitler,
more than me
I don't see, why they'd rather be with Hitler,
more than me.

...can't be arsed to think up witty titles

I said i'd post more regularly so I guess I'll write something now, seeing as how i'm bored.

Posting song lyrics is quite fun so i'll do that

well I wanna scream, but bitterness has silenced these emotions
it's getting hard to breathe
so tell me isn't happiness worth more than a gold or diamond ring?
i'm willing to do anything to calm the storm in my heart
i've never been the praying kind, but lately i've been down on my knees
not looking for a miracle, just a reason to believe

Savage Garden - Hold Me

as these lyrics may lead you to believe, i'm not in the best of moods - it's boredom, it leads me to think about things more than i should, starts to get me down. i hate boredom so much.

recently i've become a great believer in fate. i've always believed in it, but more so over the last few months. i actually prefer the idea that i'm not in control of my own life, it means there is less chance of me fucking it up, detaches me from responsibility for my actions, suits me down to the ground. a lot of people who believe in fate actually mean they believe that no matter what, everything will turn out alright in the end - this is not fate. fate does not necessarily mean that things will get better, they may well get worse - fate means that these circumstances are simply predetermined. things may get a lot better soon, or they may get worse - either way, these things will happen no matter what i do - it makes my philosophy of life simply to let it all happen, let it all roll over me, and not care. my life can turn to absolute bliss, or the world can come crashing down around me - there is nothing i can do about it.

i also believe that everything happens for a reason - this is linked in with my ideas of fate. so if something terrible happens, there is a reason for that to happen - it is these reasons we need to understand.

anyway, i've rambled on for a while now, and i'm kind of coming to a dead end, not sure how to wrap this up so i'll just end it here.
