Gone with the wind (original) Yeah baby, walking down that beach Seemed that we could walk on forever Holding hands and serious kissing Thought that it wouldn’t stop, no never, You saw me touching the moon, You broke walls with a sheer whisper And after making love All that left was simple lisper Lifted me up like a feather And held me down with a single finger Painted the sky with golden flowers And the feeling, it still lingers Then you were Gone with the wind I went down in a spin You were gone with the wind And I can’t give in You told me you were a gypsy And that gypsies they travel forever I think it was a bad excuse But the reason you left me, it doesn’t matter Now I just wanna grab a bottle Yeah, I just wanna get soaked Forget all about you And think it was a joke Another ship to burn behind me Another love to forget And I think if we’ll ever meet again I won’t pretend and I’ll be sad Gone with the wind I went down in a spin I’ll be gone with the wind No, I won’t be in And when the morning came I flew high, into the sun I burned my wings, I called your name Yeah, you knew that I would fall Still you’ve got your arms around me Can’t believe that you are gone My god, I feel so lonely But I know that we are done Gone with the wind I went down in a spin I’ll be gone with the wind But I won’t give in, Gone with the wind I went down in a spin I’ll be gone with the wind No I can’t give in © All rights reserved, Marc Crolla, 2013

He’s so good (original) A fun project with the Hilarious Dancing Girls (my nieces & sister), also starring Marcel & Marc Vocals and instruments; Marc CrollaBackground vocals by Karin van der Wilt Lyrics: He’s so good He’s got a box full of candy and a bag full of lies If you go with him you’re gonna get a surprise I warn you baby: He’s the wrong kind of guy You don’t want to listen, see the look in your eyes After tonight you will complain: The wrong kind of man, It drives me insane. He’s not the kind of man you should take home But even when I say so, you drag him along His teeth are white and his talk is smooth He’s the slickest man in the neighbourhood He’ll make love to you until the sun goes up And when you finally wake up, he’ll pour coffee in your cup When they are thirty, they don’t want him anymore They are looking for a daddy with a different score Some try to tame the tiger, but they never succeed, The first time is the last time that they ever meet. Women are animals too, and out there it’s a zoo It’s not his mistake, that he’s that kind of man With him they want to misbehave Women are animals too, and out there it’s a zoo He’s the kind of man other men hate He’s so smooth and always gets away with it He’s got a box full of lies and a brand-new suit They just want him, ‘cause he looks so good When I tell you, honey, shouldn’t do this anymore She says one day a month I want my candy from the store After tonight you will complain: The wrong kind of men It drives me insane He’s not the kind of man you should take home But even when I say so you drag him along © original song by Marc Crolla, November 2013, all rights reserved

If I could stay (original) Collab with Herve Southman, just piano and vocals. If I could stay If I could stay, If I could stay, Then we could count the falling stars I’d give you mine, To wish upon I could lie down with you And whisper in your ear All those miracles you want to hear If I could stay If I could stay We could melt together Let peace dwell in love, And let love dwell in peace And spoon, to keep you warm If I, if I, if I could stay If I could stay If I could stay A goodbye kiss, just one Withold my tears until I’m gone I walk away I won’t turn around Disappear over the horizon If I could stay If I could stay

My friend Blanca Silva asked me to write music to a poem of hers. The outcome is a bit surprising. I never wrote something so "chanson-like". The paintings in the video are by Blanca herself, who is a painter (and also a poet, so it seems now). Curriculum of Blanca at: http://www.galegos.info/en/blanca-silva The lyrics are about a call for inspiration by the artist: Auxilio (una llamada de auxilio a la poética) Espera un momento Espera que alargue mi brazo, Remo, cinta y lazo Ate mi espíritu a tu línea Dáme tiempo, dáme tiempo No te alejes definitiva En las brumas, las nieblas, Horizonte ultramar, Donde no alcanza mi vista No ves que estoy temblando No ves que estoy, abatido, enfermo, mudo Espera un momento Espera que alargue mi brazo, Remo, cinta y lazo Ate mi espíritu a tu línea Translation into English: Wait a moment Wait, I’ll stretch out my arm I row, I tie, I hit Tie my spirit to your line Give me time Give me time Don’t go away for good Into the mist, the fog The overseas horizon Where my eyes cant’ see Don’t you see I am trembling, depressed, silent (repeated)

A song for Mrs. W. (original) I wrote this last week…. Mrs W, was his teacher, He liked her quite a lot He loved the way she talked and smiled didn’t give it too much thought Then he fell in love with her The feeling, it was deep One day she came too close to him, He kissed her on the cheek. Mrs. W was handsome, Intelligent and slim How it happened I don’t know She fell in love with him They had to keep it secret To everyone they lied, I tell you, love is so exiting If you’ve got to hide Double W, Double Me, Real love’s what you made me feel Double W Double Me, He gave you his virginity He wanted to make love to her Something still unseen, She told him to be patient He was only seventeen So they did lots of kissing, He waited, he obeyed Untill his eighteen birthday came Oh boy, that was a day! Double W, Double Me, Double Love I felt so free Double W Double Me, You taught me love You made me see She was really wonderful She handled him with care It was all soft and tender She said he had a flair Their love, it was outrageous Spring the whole year through Suddenly the day was there That he finished school They didn’t have to hide no more Lost a couple of so called friends Their love it was unbreakable Forever it would last 15 years of difference Did not matter to them at all They lived and loved, and loved and lived, Yeah, they had a ball And then the day, it had to come He made that big mistake Seven years of precious love He put it all at stake Double W, Double me, All my fault Stupidity Double W Double me, I lost my love You made me see Mrs. W. if you listen to me I know that I was wrong I know I can’t make up for it With a single song Still, you were my best love I’ll never forget about you Before you go I will be gone I know you loved me too. Double W Double me Real love’s what you made me feel Double W Double me I gave you my virginity Double W Double me, Double love, I felt so free Double W, Double me, You taught me love You made me see Double W, Double me, All my fault Stupidity Double W Double me, I lost my love You made me see Double W You doubled me You taught me love You made me feel

The Abyss You said it was inside of you, Something with the past Father, ex-boyfriends And that it was too sad In the ambulance I saw you floating, saw how you traveled Between life and death Never know when you would jump One more time, and nothing would be left, Of me, but just a stump You were walking, we were living At the edge of the abyss You lost your hair, fertility You said it wasn’t because of me I was standing on the side of the abyss Could only wait and see Two times you tried, I couldn’t hold you back Before the third time I said, I’ve got a suitcase to pack You said you understood, And you gave me kiss And we said goodbye At the edge of the abyss I tell you, we were both walking and dying on the edge of the abyss © Marc Crolla, September 2013

Girls in the street (original by Marc Crolla) Last Saturday we had a couple of hours before Arnoud’s gig in Haarlem and decided to kill time recording one of my older songs. We had to improvise, only had the IPad to record with, no microphone and no headphones, so please don’t be to critical about the sound. Thanks to Isolde, for improvising. She had never heard the song before. Arnoud van Hall: Guitars, bass, background vocals Marc Crolla, drums and vocals Isolde van IJzendoorn, vocals

On the road (original) All instruments and vocals by Marc Crolla. Video featuring my son Aran and my neighbour Agnes. (Has anyone seen a girl with curls? I’m looking for a girl with curls!) Nothing to do in the neighbourhood, Just hanging around, don’t feel to good So I think what the heck, I pack by bags I don’t know if I’ll ever come back To myself I say: let’s go! I’m on the road No money, no plane, so I take the train Or maybe the bus, or hitchhiking Now it’s the freedom that I breath, I’m living on a different beat To myself I say: let’s go! I’m on the road You can come along with me, please come along with me, on the road, on the road (Has anyone seen a girl with curls yet?) I’ll do any job, anything I can find To be on the road, it frees my mind I travel all over this silly world Untill I meet a girl with curls, And she will come with me, On the road On the road, Come along, come along with me

True to the heart Every child is born innocent, but dishonesty is imminent, and everyone after that start learns to play a different part I don’t presume to be of a different kind. The falseness that is in my mind… What is my true identity? To be myself is an art. I’m still learning to be myself, true to the heart In daily life I wear a mask, I’m playing a very different Marc. It’s something that I can’t put off, I think that my true self is lost. Like Faustus has, I’ve sold my soul, society that took its toll. To be myself is so hard, to be myself is an art I’m still learning to be myself, true to the heart You see, I’m in a kind of a hurry, I can’t afford to waiste my time. You know, I can’t keep standing here, I have to try to cut those ties. My friend, please forgive me, for the truth and all the lies. Who ever wants to hear my plea, I ask you won’t you please help me? You tell me how to change my clothes, And find some new ones on the road. Or is it in this ugly skin, the lies, the thief, the words, the sin? Drained with evil, cut it out, To be myself, it is so hard, I’m still learning to be myself, true to the heart

Wasteland The white crow flies Little sister lies Now you’ve got me. I’m driving down the highway The willow tree wheeps A truck that beeps And we are bothing crying It’s such a sad day. No don’t think I should won’t do you no good, no good. No, I won’t hold your hand, to lead you through wasteland A big car crash, A yellow white flash And now you’ve got me, Diving in a deep sea The car that falls The wheels still roll Now you’ve hurt me You can hear my heart beat No, I won’t pull you through Won’t do you no good, no good And I won’t, won’t hold your hand To lead you through wasteland Wasteland Wasteland No, I won’t pull you through Won’t do you no good, no good No, I won’t hold your hand To lead you through wasteland The rock that I hit When you threw a fit But still I’m driving Down that highway The white crow flies The little man dies All together It was such a long day No, I won’t pull you through Won’t do you no good, no good No, I won’t hold your hand To lead you through wasteland Wasteland, wasteland

Hallways of fame She has it all, should leave her alone She’s finally got it made She flies from here to Tokyo In her private plane One million dollar dress It is all the same And handsome men, More or less, not all without a name As she walks through the hallways of fame A pretty face, a wonderful smile She is a goddess of love Shops in Paris, London and Rome but what is she thinking of She understood, an empty paradise That is all the same And the most bidding man He has to toss in her game As she walks through the hallways of fame And the girl, she thinks, I have to do this my way She bangs her little head against the wall And the queen, she climbs her endless golden stairway With each step she’s getting closer to the fall As she walks through the hallways of fame

All those faces They’re always there, they scream and cry, they go Over endless roads, The wounded and the refugees, Those who have lost their homes It never stops, it never ends Everywhere they’ve been It is something I am dreaming of All the faces that I have seen All those faces We see the bombs and bullets fly Don’t know who’s right, who’s wrong We only watch and wonder why Where do they all belong It never stops it never ends We sit and watch our screens They are a thousand miles away All the faces that I’ve seen All those faces Lyrics and music by Marc Crolla, March 2013
