english ballads

In Tumblr-ish we don’t say “It’s the second week of May” we say “EUROVISION SONG CONTEST !!!11!1!!” which literally translates to “Please no more ballads in English but more glitter, pianos on fire, dancing babushkas and Verka Serduchka !”.

“The Beautiful Lady Without Pity (La Belle Dame Sans Merci)”

The painting is inspired by “La Belle Dame sans Merci,” a ballad written by the English poet John Keats, originally in 1819.

They say that everyone’s pinky finger is tied to an invisible red string that will lead him or her to another person with whom they will make history…

Apparently, in this situation things are going to change… a little bit (╯◕_◕)╯

  • what they say: i mean she's not bad but...
  • what they mean: I Swear To God If We Have One More Mediocre Fucking English Female Love Ballad I Am Going To Fly To Ukraine On The Wings Of My Pure Unadulterated Rage And Dismantle The Entire Eurovision Song Contest Two Thousand And Seventeen With My Bare Hands And The Force Of A Thousand Italian Gorillas

English Lyrics


You’re so bad even till the end
The last words you said with your back turned
Were the cruel and potent, goodbye

I got so mad, I lost my cool
Fine, it’s over now, yeah
I don’t know, I did the best I could
Although all of me is breaking down because of you

Darling you
My hope inside this fear is you
Darling you
Even though the world tells me
At the end of this long journey, nothing lasts forever
Darling darling you
It’s only you for me

How many times are you just gonna cry?
Please stop
Just date someone who doesn’t make you cry then
I hate myself for saying such cruel words
But I hate you more for making me like this, yeah
How much longer do we have to be in pain?
All of you is breaking down in one moment
But

Darling you
My hope inside this fear is you
Darling you
Even though the world tells me
At the end of this long journey, nothing lasts forever
Darling darling you
It’s only you for me

I’m drunk with the strong alcohol that is you
And I’m swaying again today
I’m lost in your maze but
Darling you

I’m crashing against your wall
And I’ve crumbled down again
But if it’s you, I’m happy

Darling you
My hope inside this fear is you
Darling you
Even though the world tells me
At the end of this long journey, nothing lasts forever
Darling darling you
It’s only you for me

Dropkick Murphys - Rose tattoo

This one’s for the mighty sea
Mischief, gold and piracy
This one’s for the man that raised me
Taught me sacrifice and bravery
This one’s for our favorite game
Black and gold, we wave the flag
This one’s for my family name
With pride I’ll wear it to the grave

Some may be from showing up
Others are from growing up
Sometimes I was so messed up and didn’t have a clue
I ain’t winning no one over, I’ll wear it just for you
I’ve got your name written here in a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
I’ve got your name written here
In a rose tattoo

In a rose tattoo
In a rose tattoo
Signed and sealed in blood
I would die for you

*Rogue is fucking drunk, welp. Nay, day-drunk. I learned that word recently, I think from Critical Role (because of course I did) and I was so amused. Like, awww, you make a distinction. How cute.*

Name: Angel
Age: 20
Country:  Ireland

Hello reader, I’m Angel and I was born in the Philippines, but I grew up in Ireland for the most part. I can speak Tagalog and English, some Spanish and Irish-though don’t expect to have a full on conversation in those languages lol. I’m currently studying nursing and I will be entering my second year in this course around August.

I love music and it’s something that I cannot live/function without! My favourite types of music are indie, acoustics, pop, synth pop, alternative, r&b and the occasional ballad (karaoke is life). My favourite band is Tegan and Sara, I also love listening to Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and others. I play the guitar and ukulele, but not as much as I used to. Video games, reading (fanfics mostly..) and movies are some of my other interests. I mostly play PS4 and sometimes PC. Horror movies are one of my favourite movie genres.

I’ve had a pen pal before through email. I occasionally send cards, postcards and small presents to some friends and acquaintances all over the world. I enjoy receiving post through snail mail because I have such a fascination for it.

Looking for someone open-minded, doesn’t mind bad puns and memes, with similar interests/opposite interests that would like to get in touch either through messages, emails, snail mail or all of the above:)

English Lyrics


I don’t really know about love, yeah
I don’t really know about this world, yeah
Yea, I’m so bad, I only think about myself, yeah
But I regret so much that I didn’t say sorry, baby

Back then, I thought doing whatever I wanted was all part of being young
Bae no no no

This is a song but this is my heart, will you come back to me?
Just like back then, I’ll hold you tight and make you smile
Although it’s too late and I’m a bit anxious
You have to come back, I’m your home

I don’t know about other people’s pain, yeah
I don’t know the meaning of tears, yeah
I can’t lose, cuz losing is my loss, yeah
But now I regret only thinking about my pride, baby

Back then, I thought being immature was all part of being young
Bae no no no

This is a song but this is my heart, will you come back to me?
Just like back then, I’ll hold you tight and make you smile
Although it’s too late and I’m a bit anxious
You have to come back, I’m your home

Why did I realize this now?
Losing you is losing everything
I admit that I wasn’t good enough
But please come back

This is a song but this is my heart, will you come back to me?
Just like back then, I’ll hold you tight and make you smile
Although it’s too late and I’m a bit anxious
You have to come back, I’m your home

CELEBRATE DIVERSITY

I get slightly irritated every time someone says that the slogan of this year’s ESC ‘’Celebrate diversity’’ doesn’t suit the chosen entries because most of them are ‘’Ballads in English’’. While it is true that the overwhelming majority of songs are in English, let’s not forget and appreciate the musical diversity this year has given us: The modern party songs of Sweden, Israel and Greece and the unique ethno entries from Hungary and Armenia. The uplifting and cheerful Belarus and Austria, the dark and mysterious Finland and Poland. The powerful Albania and Georgia and the happy feel-good Moldova and Spain. The rocking Ukraine and the classy ballads of Australia, Bulgaria and UK.  The divine beats of Cyprus, Serbia and Macedonia and the light-hearted and adorable Romania. The sweet sincerity of Portugal, Czech Republic, Russia, Malta, and the liveliness of Italy. The elegant France, electro Latvia, and upbeat Montenegro. The contemporary and atmospheric Azerbaijan, Belgium, the uniqueness of Croatia. The dynamic Lithuania, San Marino, Denmark and the feeling of nostalgia from Slovenia and Ireland. The Dutch entry which never fails to make me shed a tear, and the German one which always makes me smile. And let’s not forget the soothing mid-tempo songs of Iceland, Switzerland, Norway and Estonia. 
This year’s contest has been great, I couldn’t be more satisfied with the songs which have been chosen. :)

The Ballad of Anne Boleyn [05/06]

05 - The Raven

Oh, oh raven, oh, oh raven, oh, oh raven, raven….
Oh raven, do lend me your eyes, and show me my fate,
so I may survive.
