Bassey, Shirley - Life Goes On Lyrics




Life goes on
And we pass through
Days of sunlight days of tears
It's the way life comes to you
Foolish wasting precious years.

Life goes on
One day you cry
In your laugh you filled the air
See the winter paint the sky
Feel a moment of dispair.

One day you trust in love
The world exists for you
One day you trust no more
And then the world turns blue.

Here today, tomorrow gone
Say goodbye and life goes on...

    As a footnote of interest regarding musical tecnique ;original time signature of this piece,as i picked up as with my hearing appears to be,8/8,notes grouped as 3+2+3 as eighth notes,wheras it is something like a waltz rhythm,which is 3/4,in the version above sung by Shirley Bassey.

  16. Steven Kozobarich

    Yes, this song is completely based on a VERY old Serbian song called "Mislio sam da je život" by Serbian composer and writer Dragutin B. Ilić (1910-1933). The original version is a tragic song about a young Serbian man who spent his life in vain pursuits, drinking wine in the Kafanas and chasing women. It is a "confession" of sorts to his mother as he was dying of tuberculosis. It was a famous song long ago, so it's quite possible that a young, Greek, future composer heard it when he was little :) But this is how things go in the Balkans. Maybe the melody is even OLDER than BOTH composers! Maybe it can be traced back to even older times! But as of yet, I don't know of any such evidence...

    John F. Kennedy

    Thank you for your insight. This is the first time I listen to this song and what a poetic people. The melody take back to another ea-ire you to long ago.

    bill1821st

    Your claim is that this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCZ5bLtbYxY resembles with Miki's song. That 's ridiculous! Let the audience decide.

    X slobodan vukovic X

    yes this is the first version from 40s

    Steven Kozobarich

    @bill1821st Actually it was some Greeks who told me that Serbs stole this song (the one you posted a link to) from Theodorakis. Now, when I found that the original song was written and composed when Theodorakis was just a small child, Serbs are lying or something?! Or as you say "ridiculous"?

    Dias de luz solar dias de lágrimas
    É a forma como a vida vem até você
    Foolish desperdiçando preciosos anos

    A vida continua
    Um dia você chorar
    Em sua risada lhe enchia o ar
    Veja o inverno pintar o céu
    Sinta-se um momento de desespero

    Um dia você confiar no amor
    O mundo existe para você
    Um dia você confia mais
    E então o mundo se torna azul

    Aqui hoje, ido tomorow
    Diga adeus ea vida continua

  34. George Busbas

    Shirley Bassey - Life Goes On (Το γελαστό παιδί - Μίκης Θεοδωράκης) Ο Θεοδωράκης μελοποίησε τα τραγούδια από το θεατρικό έργο του Brendan Behan Ένας Όμηρος, ευαισθητοποιημένος από τον απελευθερωτικό αγώνα του ιρλανδικού λαού και των ευρύτερων κινημάτων για ζωή και ελευθερία. Οι στίχοι είναι του Βασίλη Ρώτα. H φωνή της μαγική.Το «Γελαστό παιδί» του Μίκη Θεοδωράκη δεν ήταν ελληνόπουλο, αλλά ένας επαναστάτης από την Ιρλανδία.
    Ήταν ο Michael Collins, ένας απ΄τους σημαντικότερους ηγέτες του ιρλανδικού απελευθερωτικού κινήματος.Επίσημα το τραγούδι ηχογραφήθηκε για πρώτη φορά το 1966 με ερμηνεύτρια τη Ντόρα Γιαννακοπούλου, αλλά ευρύτατα γνωστό έγινε με την ερμηνεία της Μαρίας Φαραντούρη. Λόγω δικτατορίας όμως κυκλοφόρησε επτά χρόνια μετά. O Ιρλανδός έγραψε το ποίημα για τον απελευθερωτικό αγώνα κατά των Βρετανών και το αδικοχαμένο «Γελαστό Παιδί” ήταν ένα αθώο θύμα του εμφυλίου.

    If this is the truth, please tell us the title and the author of the Serbian song stolen by Mikis Theodorakis.

    kostasbr51

    Probably you mean the song "Mislio sam da je zivot", by Dragutin B. Ilic. It's not the same melody. Everybody can check it on You Tube, there are some covers. There is some resemblance, but not the same song.

    Steven Kozobarich

    Yes, this is based on the Serbian song "Mislio sam da je zivot". Even the general them of the songs in the same. Wasted youth...

  39. Møons

    I love the Greek sound of this song.

  40. Andrea Dobetti

    Non so perché certa gente qui è convinta che To gelastò paidì di Mikis (da Brendam) assomigli alla canzone di Ilic'. Misteri dell'udito (e dell'analisi musicale)!

    This song was written and composed by Serbian poet Dragutin B. Ilić (1910-1933).

    rasta man

    @Мирослав Ђукић can you please tell me the name of the original song? I would appreciate that!!! thank you!

    Мирослав Ђукић

    Of course! The name of this song, on the Serbian,  is: Мислио сам да је живот. (I was thinking that the life is...)
    Or, on Italian (as a reffren) the name is: Adio, mare (Good bay, the sea). This is one of the famous song in my nation.

    Look:

    Jimmy Hellas

    +Мирослав Ђукић 
    The music composed by Mikis Theodorakis... Wikipedia will give you an idea about him!

    Steven Kozobarich

    + Jimmy Hellas The Serbian composer of this tune died was Dragutin B. Ilic (1910-1933). He composed it when Theodorakis was probably a small child. Not only is the melody the same, but the original song is about a young man dying of tuberculosis and lamenting his wasted youth. This theme of "wasted youth" is the same in Shirley Bassey's version. And even in Theodorakis' version is about a young man dying in a senseless manner. Quite coincidental?

  48. Nantia Chalaile

  52. SESSİZLİĞİN SESİ Grubu

    Nefis bir şarkı. Bence Bassey'in en iyi 5 şarkısından biri... 
    Theodorakis içinse 20. - 21. yüzyılın en büyük birkaç bestecisinden biri diye düşünürdüm. Sayın Steven Kozobarich'in bu şarkı için yazdığı bir yorumu okuyup, verdiği bilgilere ulaşınca kalakaldım.
    Theodorakis, 23 yaşında hayata veda eden Sırp şair Dragutin B. Ilić'in güfte ve bestesini yaptığı "Mislio Sam Da Je Život; Hayatı Düşündüm" adlı tangodan fazlasıyla esinlenmiş. Yani intihal suçunu işlemiş. Daha da açığı tırtıklamış. Tırtıklanan yerse "Life Goes On"un tam da ana teması... Üzüldüm.
    Bari hayatının baharını bile yaşayamadan ölen birinin eserine saygı duy be adam!
    "Sessizliğin Sesi Grubu" ile "Yazarlar ve Ozanlar Grubu"ndan Günay Tulun

  53. Steven Kozobarich

    Theodorakis took this melody from the little known Serbian song "Mislio sam da je život", written and composed by Serbian poet Dragutin B. Ilić (1910-1933).

    MrJerrasimos Are you saying that this song was not composed by Theodorakis? I thought it was?!

    There is a resemblance, in the verses but not in the chorus... So yes, definitely some resemblance!

  60. Mirnes Sabanovic

     
    Autor pesme je Dragutin B. Ilic, rodjen u Valjevu 1910. godine, preminuo 1933, pogodjen tuberkulozom. Neverovatno je da ovakve mocne stihove napise neko sa samo 22-23 godine.
    Da li je moguće da je ovo plagijat?
    Molim da se utvrdi ko je autor ove divne pjesme u Jugoslovenskoj verziji "Mislio sam da život čaša vina" ili "Adio mare"

    Југ Крстајић

    Dragutin je rođeni ujak mog oca, i on je je komponovao melodiju i napisao tekst. Originalni naziv je ‚‚Ispovest jedne skitnice‚‚ .
