Ohrenkrebs? Kommt sofort!

Aktualisiert: 2. März 2021

Chatty Avocado ist dieser Tage etwas schreibfaul. Da er sporadisch mit lädierten Stimmbändern als Chirpy Avocado amtet, gibt's nun für einmal etwas gecoverte Musik, eingesungen von yours truly.

All the Faces (Creed Bratton)


I saw a friend today, it had been a while.

And we forgot each others names.

But it didn't matter cause deep inside

The feelings still remained the same.


We talked of knowing one before you've met,

And how you feel more than you see,

And other worlds that lie in spaces in between,

And angels you can see.


And all the faces that I know

Have that same familiar glow.

I think I must've known then somewhere once before

All the faces that I know.


All the faces that we see each and every day

When I get home at night, you're the face I need.


And when my mind's absorbed on my private little screen,

And I'm walking blind through a sea of unknown men,

I hear a voice reminding there across the street

Walks an old forgotten friend.


We don't have to say a word.

It's really better left unsaid.

Just like through eyes that recognize

All the faces that I know

All the faces that I know


All the faces that we see each and every day

When I get home at night, you're the face I need.

When I get home at night, you're the only face I need.



Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)


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, she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Maybe I've 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'd let me know

What's real and going on below

But now you never show it to me do you?

And remember when I moved in you?

The holy dark was moving too

And every breath we drew was Hallelujah


Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah


Maybe there's a God above

And all I ever learned from love

Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you

It's not a cry you can hear at night

It's not somebody who's seen the light

It's a cold and its a broken Hallelujah


Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Phantastisch! 🤩


Gerade beim Halleluja - ab dem zweiten Teil - hört man wie du aus dich herauskommst und deiner Stimme freien Lauf lässt.


Bitte mehr davon 🙏
