Because you loved me



Because You Loved Me
Céline Dion
Composição: Diane Warren

For all those times you stood by me.
For all the truth that you made me see.
For all the joy you brought to my life.
For all the wrong that you made right.
For every dream you made come true.
For all the love I found in you I'll be forever thankful baby.
You're the one who held me up.
Never let me fall.
You're the one who saw me through, though it all.

You were my strength when I was weak.
You were my voice when I couldn't speak.
You were my eyes when couldn't see.
You saw the best there was in me.
Lift me up when I couldn't reach.
You gave me faith 'coz you believed.
I'm everything I'm Because you loved me.

You gave me wings and made me fly.
You touched my hand I could touch the sky.
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me.
You said no star was out of reach.
You stood by me and I stood tall.
I had your love I had it all.
I'm grateful for each day you gave me.
Maybe I don't know that much, but I know this much is true.
I was blessed because I was loved by you.

You were my strength when I was weak.
You were my voice when I couldn't speak.
You were my eyes when couldn't see.
You saw the best there was in me.
Lift me up when I couldn´t reach.
You gave me faith ´coz you believed.
I'm everything I am Because you loved me.

You were always there for me.
The tender wind that carried me.
A light in the dark shining your love into my life.
You've been my inspiration.
Through the lies you were the truth.
My world is a better place because of you.

You were my strength when I was weak.
You were my voice when I couldn't speak.
You were my eyes when couldn't see.
You saw the best there was in me.
Lift me up when I couldn't reach.
You gave me faith ´coz you believed.
I'm everything I am Because you loved me

Back to Black


Amy Winehouse

Composição: Amy Winehouse / Mark Ronson


He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet with his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry, get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked, I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough, you love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black, black, black, black
Black, black, black...
I go back to
I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

Auxiliary Verbs:

Posted by Picasa

The verb "be"
The verb be can be used as an auxiliary and a full verb. As an auxiliary we use this verb for compound tenses and the passive voice. Note that be is an irregular verb:

Simple Present:I am, he/she/it is, we/you/they are
Simple Past:I/he/she/it was, we/you/they were
Past Participle:been
You can tell that in the following sentences be is an auxiliary because it is followed by another verb (the full verb). (For progressive forms use the "-ing" form of the full verb; for passive voice, use the past participle of the full verb.)

Progressive Forms

Present Progressive:He is playing football.
Past Progressive:He was playing football.
Present Perfect Progressive:He has been playing football.
Past Perfect Progressive:He had been playing football.
Passive

Simple Present/Past:The house is/was built.
Present/Past Perfect:The house has/had been built.
Future I:The house will be built.
"be" as a full verb

The verb be can also be a full verb. In this case, it's not followed by another verb. If be is used as a full verb, we do not need an auxiliary in negative sentences or questions.

positive sentence:They are fifteen years old.
negative sentence:They are not fifteen years old.
question:Are they fifteen years old?
The verb "have"
The verb have, too, can be used both as an auxiliary and as a full verb. As an auxiliary we use this verb to form compound tenses in active and passive voice. (Use the past participle of the full verb.)

Compound Tenses - Active Voice

Present Perfect Simple:He has played football.
Past Perfect Simple:He had played football.
Present Perfect Progressive:He has been playing football.
Past Perfect Progressive:He had been playing football.
Compound Tenses - Passive Voice

Present/Past Perfect:The house has/had been built.
Note that have is an irregular verb, too:

Simple Present:I/we/you/they have, he/she/it has
Simple Past:I/he/she/it/we/you/they had
Past Participle:had
"have" in positive sentences

As a full verb have indicates possession. In British English, however, we usually use have got (have being the auxiliary, got the full verb).

full verb:I have a car.
auxiliary verb:I have got a car.
"have" in negative sentences and questions

When we use have as a full verb, we must use the auxiliary do in negative sentences and questions. If we use have got, however, we do not need another auxiliary.

have as a full verb:I do not have a car.
Do I have a car?
have as an auxiliary verb:I have not got a car.
Have I got a car?
The verb "will"
The verb will can only be used as an auxiliary. We use it to form the future tenses.

The auxiliary verb "will"

Future I:He will not play football.
Future II:He will have played football.
The verb will remains the same for all forms (no "s" for 3rd person singular). The short form for negative sentences is won't.'

Examples:I will, he will
I will not = I won't
The verb "do"
The verb do can be both an auxiliary and a full verb. As an auxiliary we use do in negative sentences and questions for most verbs (except not for be, will, have got and modal verbs) in Simple Present and Simple Past. (Use the infinitive of the full verb.)

The auxiliary "do" in negative sentences

Simple Present:He does not play football.
Simple Past:He did not play football.
The auxiliary "do" in questions

Simple Present:Does he play football?
Simple Past:Did he play football?
The verb do is irregular:

Simple Present:I/we/you/they do, he/she/it does
Simple Past:I/he/she/it/we/you/they did
The full verb "do"

As a full verb we use do in certain expressions. If we want to form negative sentences or questions using do as a full verb, we need another do as an auxiliary.

positive sentence:She does her homework every day.
negative sentence:She doesn't do her homework every day.
question:Does she do her homework every day?
Sentences without the auxiliary "do"
In the following cases, the auxiliary do is not used in negative sentences/questions:

the full verb is "be"

Example:I am not angry. / Are you okay?
the sentence already contains another auxiliary (e.g. have, be, will)

Example:They are not sleeping. / Have you heard that?
the sentence contains a modal verb (can, may, must, need, ought to, shall, should)

Example:We need not wait. / Can you repeat that, please?
the question asks for the subject of the sentence

Example:Who sings that song?

"Tears in heaven" - Eric Clapton

Posted by Picasa


Composição: Eric Clapton / Will Jennings

Would you know my name
If I saw you in Heaven?
Will you be the same
If I saw you in Heaven?
I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in Heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in Heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in Heaven?
I'll find my way
Through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in Heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace
I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in Heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in Heaven?
Will you be the same
If I saw you in Heaven?

Plural de Frases com "a / an" e adjetivos:

Posted by Picasa


• A e an são usados como um ou uma, portanto apenas quando estivermos falando de uma coisa, uma pessoa, uma situação, etc.

•Veja um exemplo de uma sentença no 'singular' indo para o 'plural':

She is a lawyer -------> They are lawyers.

•No exemplo acima, she significa ela - o plural de ela é elas --> they.

•O artigo indefinido a, que no exemplo acima significa uma, desaparece no plural. Se o a fosse mantido (They are a lawyers) seria a mesma coisa que dizer 'Elas são uma advogadas'.

•E o plural de lawyer, como o da maioria dos substantivos no inglês, é obtido acrescentando-se um s.

•Veja outros exemplos:

singular
plural

I am an actor.

[Eu sou (um) ator.]
We are actors.

[Nós somos atores.]

He is from Germany.

[Ele é da Alemanha.]
They are from Germany.

[Eles são da Alemanha.]

A fly is an insect.

[Uma mosca é um inseto.]
Flies are insects.

[Moscas são insetos.]

A horse is an animal.

[Um cavalo é um animal.]
Horses are animals.

[Cavalos são animais.]
