The Killers- Spaceman

Letra original:

It started with a low light
Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed
And then they took my blood type
It left a strange impression in my head
You know that I was hoping
That I could leave this starcrossed world behind
But when they cut me open
I guess I changed my mind
And you know I might
Have just flown too far from the floor this time
Cause they calling me by my name
And the zipping white light beams
Disregarding the bombs and satellites

That was the turning point
That was one lonely night

The starmaker says it ain’t so bad
The dreammaker’s gonna make you mad
The spaceman says everybody look down!
It’s all in your mind

Now I’m back at home and
I’m looking forward to this life I live
You know it’s going to harm me
So hesitation to this life I give
You think you might cross over
You’re caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
You better look it over
Before you make that leap

And you know I’m fine,
but I hear those voices at night sometimes,
they justify my claim
And the public don’t dwell on my transmission
Cause It wasn’t televised

But it was the turning point
O what a lonely night

The starmaker says it ain’t so bad
The dreammaker’s gonna make you mad
The spaceman says everybody look down!
It’s all in your mind

The starmaker says it ain’t so bad
The dreammakers’s gonna make you mad
The spaceman says everybody look down!
It’s all in your mind

My global position systems are vocally addressed
They said the nile used to run from east to west
They said the nile used to run
from east to west

I’m fine,
but I hear those voices at night
Sometimes…

The starmaker says it ain’t so bad
The dreammaker’s gonna make you mad
The spaceman says everybody look down!
It’s all in your mind

The starmaker says it ain’t so bad
The dreammaker’s gonna make you mad
The spaceman says everybody look down!
It’s all in your mind

It’s all in my mind.

Traducción:

Todo comenzó con una tenue luz.
Lo siguiente que supe, fué que me sacaron de mi cama,
y analizaron mi grupo sanguíneo.
Me dejó una extraña impresión en mi cabeza.
Sabes que tenía esperanzas
de dejar atrás este desgraciado mundo.
Pero cuando me abrieron,
supongo que todo cambió dentro de mí.
Y sabes que podría
haber volado lejos del suelo esa vez,
porque me están llamando por mi nombre,
y los finos rayos de luz blanca
ignoran las bombas y los satélites.

Fué el punto de retorno.
Fué una noche solitaria.

El creador de estrelals dice que “no es algo tan malo”.
El creador de los sueños, te volverá loco.
El astronauta dice que “todo el mundo mira hacia abajo.
Está todo en la mente”.

Bueno, estoy de vuelta en casa, y
miro hacia delante, en ésta vida que me tocó vivir.
Sé que me perseguirá,
así que le daré una nueva oportunidad.
Crees que debes estar en medio.
Atrapado entre el diablo, y el profundo mar azul.
Mejor le echas un buen vistazo,
antes de dar ese salto.

Y sabes que estoy bien,
pero oigo esas voces por la noche a veces,
que justifican lo que reclamo,
y la gente no ha escuchado mi mensaje,
porque no lo han televisado.

Fué el punto de retorno.
Fué una noche solitaria.

El creador de estrelals dice que “no es algo tan malo”.
El creador de los sueños, te volverá loco.
El astronauta dice que “todo el mundo mira hacia abajo.
Está todo en la mente”.

El creador de estrelals dice que “no es algo tan malo”.
El creador de los sueños, te volverá loco.
El astronauta dice que “todo el mundo mira hacia abajo.
Está todo en la mente”.

Mi GPS me dice
que el Nilo solía ir de Este a Oeste.
Dice que el Nilo, solía ir
de Este a Oeste.

Y sabes que estoy bien,
pero oigo esas voces por la noche,
a veces.

El creador de estrelals dice que “no es algo tan malo”.
El creador de los sueños, te volverá loco.
El astronauta dice que “todo el mundo mira hacia abajo.
Está todo en la mente”.

El creador de estrelals dice que “no es algo tan malo”.
El creador de los sueños, te volverá loco.
El astronauta dice que “todo el mundo mira hacia abajo.
Está todo en la mente”.

Está todo en mi cabeza.

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I dont know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let’s take it easy
Easy now
Watch it go

We’re burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane
That started turning
When you were young
When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes
And see the place where you used to live
When you were young

They say the devil’s water
It ain’t so sweet
You dont have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young
(talks like a gentleman)
(like you imagined)
When you were young

I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But more than you’ll ever know

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I dont know
Higher now than ever before
I know we can make it if we take it slow
Let’s take it easy
Easy now
Watch it go

We’re burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane
That started turning
When you were young
When you were young

And sometimes you close your eyes
And see the place where you used to live
When you were young

They say the devil’s water
It ain’t so sweet
You dont have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in a little while

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young
(talks like a gentleman)
(like you imagined)
When you were young

I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But more than you’ll ever know


The Dustland Fairytale beginning
With just another white trash county kiss in ’61.
Long brown hair, and foolish eyes.
He’d look just like you’d want him to
Some kind of slick chrome American prince.

Blue Jean serenade
Moon river what you do to me.
I don’t believe you.

Saw Cinderella in a party dress, she was looking for a nightgown.
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he’s getting ready for the showdown.
I saw the minute that I turned away, I got my money on a pawn tonight.

Change came in disguise of revelation, set his soul on fire.
She said she always knew he’d come around.
And the decades disappear
Like sinking ships but we persevere.
God gives us hope but we still fear, we don’t know.

Your mind is poisoned.
Castles in the sky, sit stranded, vandalized.
The drawbridge is closing.

Saw Cinderella in a party dress, she was looking for a nightgown.
I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he’s getting ready for the showdown.
I saw the ending where they turned the page, I threw my money and I ran away.
Sent to the valley of the great divide
Out where the dreams all hide.
Out where the wind don’t blow,
Out here the good girls die.
And the sky moves slow
Out here the bird don’t sing
Out here the field don’t blow
Out here the bell don’t ring
Out hear the bell don’t ring
Out here the good girls die
Now Cinderella don’t you go to sleep, it’s such a bitter form of refuge.
Why don’t you know the kingdoms under siege and everybody needs you
Is there still magic in the midnight sun, or did you leave it back in ’61?
In the cadence of a young man’s eyes.
Out where the dreams all hide

Oh Santa
I’ve been waiting on you
That’s funny kid
Because I’ve been coming for you

Oh Santa
I’ve been killing just for fun
Well the party’s over kid
Because I
Because I got a bullet in my gun
A bullet in your what?

Santa’s got a bullet in his gun
You know it, Santa’s got a bullet in his gun

Don’t shoot me Santa Claus
I’ve been a clean living boy
I promise you
Did every little thing you asked me to
I can’t believe the things I’m going through

Don’t shoot me Santa Claus
Well no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

Oh Santa
It’s been a real hard year
There just ain’t no gettin’ around this
Life is hard
But look at me
I turned out alright

Hey Santa
Why don’t we talk about it?
Work it out
Believe me
This ain’t what I wanted
I love all you kids, you know that
Hell, I remember when you were just 10 years old
Playing out there in the desert
Just waiting for a sip of that sweet Mojave rain
In the sweet Mojave rain
The boy was on his own

Don’t shoot me Santa Claus
I’ve been a clean living boy
I promise you
Did every little thing you asked me to
I can’t believe the things I’m going through

Hey Santa Claus
Well no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

They had it coming
So why can’t you see?
I couldn’t turn my cheek no longer
The sun is going down and Christmas is near
Just look the other way and I’ll disappear forever

Woo!

Don’t shoot me Santa Claus
Well no one else around believes me
But the children on the street they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

Believe me
Santa
Santa


Nobody ever had a dream round here,
but I don’t really mind that it’s starting to get to me
Nobody ever pulls the seams round here,
but I don’t really mind that it’s starting to get to me

I’ve got this energy beneath my feet
like something underground’s gonna come up and carry me,
I’ve got this sentimental heart that beats
but I don’t really mind that it’s starting to get to me

Now, so Why do you waste my time?
Is the answer to the question on your mind
And I’m sick of all my judges
so scared of what they’ll find
But I know that I can make it
As long as somebody takes me home,
every now and then…

Oh, have you ever seen the lights?
Have you ever seen the lights?

I took a shuttle on a shock-wave ride,
where people on the pen pull the trigger for accolade
I took a bullet, and I looked inside
And Running through my veins
An American masquerade

I still remember Grandma Dixie’s wake,
I never really known anybody that died before
Red white and blue upon a birthday cake,
My brother, he was born on the fourth of the July…

and that’s all, So why do you waste my time?
Is the answer to the question on your mind
And I’m sick of all my judges,
so scared of letting me shine
But I know that I can make it,
as long as somebody takes me home…

Wooooooo!

(every now and then) [x2]

You know I’ve seen London and I’ve seen Sam’s Town
holds my hand and let’s my hair down
Rolls that world right off my shoulder
I’ve seen London and I’ve seen Sam’s Town now.

Shakin’ like the Devil when she lets me go
Got a new place and how it’s so much better.
Falling over myself, the televisions on,
I turn it off and smile.
Oh, Jennifer, you know I always tried.
Before you say goodbye

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I’ll drink it by myself.
And I love you endlessly,
darling don’t you see I’m not satisfied
until I hold you tight.
Give me one more chance tonight
and I swear I’ll make it right.
But you ain’t got time for this
and that wreckin’ bell is ringin’
and I’m not satisfied
until I hold you

]

Jennifer, tell me where I stand
and who’s that other boy holdin’ your hand?
Oh, Jennifer, you know I’ve always tried.
Before you say goodbye

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I’ll drink it by myself.
And I never liked your hair or those people that you lie with
but I’m not satisfied
until I hold you tight
and I love you endlessly,
darling don’t you see I can’t be satisfied
until I hold you tight.

Leave the bourbon on the shelf.
And I’ll drink it by myself.
And I love you endlessly,
darling don’t you see
I’m not satisfied.
