I, The Jury – “Him a paper champion fabricated to be her complete antithesis?” [Part 65] —

John Williams – The Long Goodbye (performed by Jack Sheldon)


Es ist ein langer Abschied

Und es passiert jeden Tag

Als einige Passanten

Lädt das Auge

Um ihren Weg zu kommen


Selbst als sie lächelt

Ein kurzes Hallo

Sie haben sie gehen lassen

Sie haben damit der Moment fliegen

Zu spät, du würdest drehen Sie den Kopf

Sie würden wissen, dass Sie gesagt haben

Der lange Abschied


Können Sie erkennen, den Schmerz

Auf einigen anderen Straße

Zwei ppl gerecht

Wie in einem Traum

Laufen für ein Flugzeug

Durch den regen

Wenn das Herz schneller als das Auge

Sie konnten Liebhaber sein

Bis sie sterben

Es ist zu spät, um zu versuchen

Wenn eine verpasste hallo

Wird der lange Abschied

John Williams – The Long Goodbye (performed by Jack Sheldon)


There’s a long goodbye

And it happens everyday

When some passerby

Invites your eye

To come her way


Even as she smiles

A quick hello

You let her go

You let the moment fly

Too late you turn your head

You know you said

The long goodbye

I, The Jury – “Possession or Repossession, which is it?” [Part 58]

As a nice Jewish girl, I’d like to weigh in.

Interesting. Not translating “dibbuk” (or “dybbuk”) was a nice touch. It refers to the soul of a dead sinner transmigrated into a living person (according to cabalistic folklore). I couldn’t find a translation for “keselim”, but it appears to be a term used in Turkish folklore—and seems to have been more recently applied to Dubya, Tony Blair, and Avril Lavigne.… Read Full Article
