ACORDES Y LETRAS

William It Was Really Nothing
G7       F#m     A       D      Amaj    Gmaj    G       F#m     A       D
The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
this town has dragged you down
oh the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
this town has dragged you down

G7      G7      Dmaj       Amaj           Dmaj          Amaj
And everybody's got to live their life
Bmaj       Bmaj                Dmaj        Emaj
and God knows I've got to live mine
God knows I've got to live mine

         C                    G                   D                 A  G  A
G  D   G  A  Bm            B7
William, William it was really nothing
G       Dmaj    G       A       Bm      B7      D       E
William, William it was really nothing
it was your life

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say:
"Would you like to marry me
and if you like you can buy the ring"
she doesn't care about anything
"Would you like to marry me
and if you like you can buy the ring"
I don't dream about anyone
except myself

William, William it was really nothing
William, William

 

William no era realmente nada

La lluvia cae con fuerza sobre una ciudad monótona
esta ciudad te ha arrastrado
y todo el mundo consiguió vivir su vida
y Dios sabe que tengo que vivir la mía
William no era realmente nada
Como puedes estar con una chica gorda que dirá:
" Querrías casarte conmigo
y si quieres puedes comprarme el anillo"
ella no te importa nada "
no sueño con nadie excepto conmigo
William no era realmente nada

Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me
 
Em Em/F#  C  Cm  Bm7  B7

Last night I dreamt
that somebody loved me no hope - but no harm
just another false alarm
Last night I felt
real arms around me
no hope - no harm
just another false alarm
so, tell me how long
before the last one?
and tell me how long
before the right one?
this story is old - I KNOW
but it goes on
this story is old - I KNOW
but it goes on

Anoche soñé que alguien me amaba

Anoche soñé

Que alguien me amaba

Ninguna esperanza, ningún daño

Solamente otra falsa alarma

 

Anoche sentí

Verdaderos brazos alrededor de mí

Ninguna esperanza, ningún daño

Solamente otra falsa alarma

 

Así que, dime cuanto tiempo

¿Antes del último?

Y dime cuanto tiempo

¿Antes del bueno?

 

La historia es vieja, lo sé

Pero continúa

La historia es vieja lo sé

Pero continúa

Girl Afraid

girl afraid

where do his intentions lay?

or does he even have any?

she says:

'he never really looks at me

i give him every opportunity

in the room downstairs

he sat and stared

in the room downstairs

he sat and stared

i'll never make that mistake again!'

i'll never make that mistake again

i'll never make that mistake again

boy afraid

prudence never pays

and everything she wants costs money

'but she doesn't even like me!

and i know because she said so

in the room downstairs

she sat and stared

in the room downstairs

she sat and stared

i'll never make that mistake again!'

 

Chica con miedo

la chica con miedo,

cuáles son  sus intenciones?

¿si es que tiene alguna?

ella dice: “él realmente nunca me mira

le doy la oportunidad

en la habitación de abajo él se sentó y me miró fijamente

nunca cometeré aquel error otra vez"

el chico con miedo

Prudence nunca paga

y todo lo que ella quiere cuesta dinero

pero aún no le gusto

y lo sé porque ella lo dijo

en la habitación de abajo ella se sentó y me miró fijamente

nunca cometeré aquel error otra vez

El bocazas golpea otra vez

Cariño, cariño, yo sólo bromeaba cuando te dije que me gustaría romper cada diente de tu cabeza.

Cariño, cariño, yo sólo bromeaba cuando dije que en justicia deberías ser aporreada en tu cama.

Y ahora sé como Juana de Arco se sintió

Como las Llamas se elevaron por encima de su nariz romana y su walkman comenzó a derretirse.

El Bocazas golpea otra vez y no tengo ningún derecho a tener mi sitio en la raza humana
