Alicia Keys - 'Holy War' Live


If war is holy and sex is obscene
Then we got it twisted in this lucid dream
Baptized in boundaries, schooled in sin
Divided by difference, sexuality and skin

So we can hate each other and fear each other
We can build these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked in
We can hate each other and fear each other
We can build these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked

Maybe we should love somebody
Maybe we could care a little more
Maybe we could love somebody
Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

What if sex was holy and war was obscene
And it wasn't twisted, what a wonderful dream
Living for love, unafraid of the end
Forgiveness is the only real revenge

So we can heal each other
And feel each other
We can break these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself open, yourself open
We can heal each other
And feel each other
We can break these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself open, yourself open

Maybe we should love somebody
Maybe we could care a little more
Maybe we could love somebody
Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

What if love is holy and hate is obscene
We should give life to this beautiful dream
Cause peace and love ain't so far
If we nurse our wounds
Before they scar
Nurse our wounds
Before they scar

Finjo Finjo tanto
Que até a pensar finjo que penso Finjo tanto, que fujo em cavalos de fumo
Num galope de gazela de vento, com olhos de lua
E lágrimas húmidas de mundos tristes
Só para imitar beleza de imagens que nunca tive (momento doce nesta tempestade subterrânea) Agora...
Agora a infância já me fica tão distante
Mas mesmo assim, continuo a vestir o bibe das riscas azuis
Com que me vou enlamear no pântano mais próximo
Para saborear o medo e a inocência
De quem é condenado por julgar estrelas
As pedras humilhadas desta rua que outrora me pertenceu Construo cidades de água e jardins transparentes
Onde planto flores de sono, que amo e possuo
Num acto único de metamorfose selvagem E finjo
E finjo a coragem que não tenho
No retrato mentiroso da moldura onde me exibem
Com o sorriso irónico da punhalada traiçoeira (Futuro génio da família… dizem eles) Promoção gratuita na condição de nunca ser eu
Mas sim, o cadáver ambulante da sua vontade Querem-me vestido de carne à sua semelhança!
Na…
