Regina Spektor – “Samson” [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Regina Spektor “Samson” Directed by Peter Sluszka

REGINA SPEKTOR  – Samson

You are my sweetest downfall

I loved you first, I loved you first

Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth

I have to go, I have to go

Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

myStory: Regina Spektor


[youtube.com/watch?v=d-Ds9lyXslY]

Russian-born Jewish singer-songwriter Regina Spektor reflects on her immigration to New York in 1989–from the fantasies she and her cousin had about moving to the tropics to the realities of adjusting to life in the Bronx, where their new Jewish community became an extension of her family.

Regina came to the United States through HIAS, an organization that rescues, resettles, and reunites vulnerable refugees. Her interview is part of HIAS’ myStory project; view more videos at http://www.myStory.hias.org.

Regina Spektor- Firewood w/ Lyrics


The piano is not firewood yet
They try to remember but still they forget
That the heart beats in threes
Just like a waltz
And nothing can stop you from dancing

Rise from your cold hospital bed
I’ll tell you, you’re not dying
Everyone knows you’re going to live
So you might as well start trying

The piano is not firewood yet
But the cold does get cold
So it soon might be that
I’ll take it apart, call up my friends
And we’ll warm up our hands by the fire

Don’t look so shocked
Don’t judge so harsh
You don’t know
You are only spying
Everyone knows it’s going to hurt
But at least we’ll get hurt trying

The piano is not firewood yet
But a heart can’t be helped
And it gathers regret
Someday you’ll wake up and feel a great pain
And you’ll miss every toy you ever owned

You’ll want to go back
You’ll wish you were small
Nothing can solve your crying
You’ll take the clock off of your wall
And you’ll wish that it was lying

Love what you have and you’ll have more love
You’re not dying
Everyone knows you’re going to love
Though there’s still no cure for crying

Congratulations Regina!

Regina Spektor – NPR Interview (24 May 2012)


 


A video I made of the broadcast interview “Regina Spektor Still Doesn’t Write Anything Down” at National Public Radio (NPR) Music on 24 May 2012 with Regina Spektor. It is so refreshing to listen to this very popular artist who is not so full of herself, is so “normal” and natural, pleasant and honest. I’ve seen her six times now during the last 2 years (and still counting) and know that this is how she is ALL the time … so grateful to those who have made it possible for her to make music and so unselfish and generous in the way she wants everyone to have access to it, even if it means letting them have it for free or for very little cost.
(Note: I do not own or claim to own any rights to the content of this interview. It is posted here strictly for public information and educational purposes.)

 

Regina Spektor – “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)” Official Music Video


 

Ne Me Quitte Pas

Down in Bowery
They lose their ballads and their lipped-mouths in the night
And stumbling through the street, they say
Sir, do you got a light?
And if you do then you’re my friend
And if you don’t then you’re my foe
And if you are a deity of any sort then please don’t go”Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pasDown in Lexington they walk in new shoes stuck to aging feet
And close their eyes and open
And not recognize the aging street
And think about the things were right
When they were young and veins were tight
And if you are the ghost of Christmas past
Then won’t you stay the night?Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ooh ooh ooh
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas

Down in Bronxy Bronx
The kids go sledding down snow covered slopes
And frozen noses, frozen toes
The frozen city starts to glow
And yes, they know that it will pass
And yes they know New York will thaw
But if you’re a friend of any sort
Then play along and catch a cold

Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ooh ooh ooh
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas

I love Paris in the rain,
I love Paris in the rain
I love, I love, I love in the rain
I love Paris in the rain,
I love Paris in the rain
And I Love I love I love in the rain
I love, I love, I love in the rain

Down in Paris they walk fast
That is unless they’re walking slow
And in cafes they look away
That is unless they look right in
And in the gardens I get lost
That is unless I’m getting found
And if you are the ghost of New York City
Then won’t you stick around?

Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ooh ooh ooh
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas, ah ah ah
Ne me quitte pas, mon cher
Ne me quitte pas

I love Paris in the rain,
I love Paris in the rain
I love, I love, I love in the rain
I love Paris in the rain,
I love Paris in the rain
I love, I love, I love in the rain
And I love, I love, I love in the rain…

And I love, I love, I love, in the rain
I love, I love
In the rain, in the rain
Oh I love in the rain
In the rain, in the rain

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
