ACORDES Y LETRAS

 

Killing Time

A – G – D / D7 – G7 – D7 – A7 – G7 – D7
I have written you a letter 
Asking you to stay with me 
But I haven't had no answer 
Killing time is killing me 
I have waited, how I've waited 
Every hour an empty dream 
Lonely nights will be my prison 
Till you belong with me again 
Darling tell me, write me a letter 
Tell me what I want to hear 
You must know the way I'm feeling 
Killing time is hard to bear 
Tiempo asesino
Te he escrito una carta
Pidiéndote que sigas conmigo
Pero no he tenido respuesta
El tiempo asesino me está matando

He esperado, cómo he esperado
Cada hora un sueño vacío
Noches solitarias serán mi prisión
Hasta que me pertenezcas otra vez

Cariño, dime, escríbeme una carta
Dime lo que quiero oir
Deberías saber lo que estoy sintiendo
El tiempo asesino es duro de llevar

She`s Too Young

Eb7 – G#7 – Eb7 – Bb7 – G#7 – Eb7

 Sixteen, she is still in school
I`ve got to learn to keep it cool
She`s too young but not for me
So with a bit of luck
She will find a way to come to me

Why do people always intervene?
Very soon she`ll be seventeen
She`s too young to skip town
She was born to be loved
And I can`t wait to bury her down

She`s beautiful and waits for me
Will our plans ever come to be?
She`s too young so people say
But with the opportunity
She would run to me today

 

Ella es demasiado joven
Dieciséis, ella está todavía en la escuela 
Tengo que aprender a mantenerme fresco
Ella es demasiado joven, pero no para mí 
Así que con un poco de suerte 
Ella encontrará la forma de venir a mí  
¿Por qué siempre interviene la gente? 
Muy pronto ella tendrá diecisiete 
Ella es demasiado joven para saltar a la ciudad Ella nació para ser amada
y yo no puedo esperar 
Ella es preciosa y me espera 
alguna vez se cumplirán nuestros planes? 
Ella es demasiado joven, dice la gente 
Pero con una oportunidad ella correría hacía mi hoy
Double Trouble

Lay awake at night,
Oh so low, just so troubled.
Can't get a job,
Laid off and I'm having double trouble.

  Hey hey, to make you've got to try.
  Baby, that's no lie.
  Some of this generation is millionaires;
  I can't even keep decent clothes to wear.

Laugh at me walking,
And I have no place to go.
Bad luck and trouble has taken me;
I have no money to show.

 
Little Girl
You're gonna be mine, little girl, you've been through 18 years of pain.
You're gonna be mine, little girl, you've been through 18 years of pain.
I'm gonna give you a love, child, you won't feel bad again.

You've been mistreated, little girl, but I swear, I swear it'll be outgrown.
You've been mistreated, little girl, but I swear, I swear it'll be outgrown.
I'm gonna give you a love, child, something you've never known.

You're gonna be mine, little girl, even if I can't have you by my side.
You're gonna be mine, little girl, even if I can't have you by my side.
You're gonna remember the love, child, that made you satisfied.
