Lhasa de Sela - Rising

I got caught in a storm
And carried away
I got turned, turned around

I got caught in a storm
That's what happened to me
So I didn't call
And you didn't see me for a while

I was rising up
Hitting the ground
And breaking and breaking

I was caught in a storm
Things were flying around

And doors were slamming
And windows were breaking
And I couldn't hear what you were saying
I couldn't hear what you were saying
I couldn't hear what you were saying

I was rising up
Hitting the ground
And breaking and breaking

Rising up
Rising up

Lhasa de Sela - Rising Lyrics

Artist: Lhasa de Sela
Album: Lhasa

Lhasa de Sela, a Mexican-American singer and songwriter who became an international star after moving to Canada, died on Jan. 1 at her home in Montreal. She was 37.
The cause was breast cancer, which she had been battling for almost two years, said her partner, Ryan Morey.
Ms. de Sela, who performed under the single name Lhasa, sang in English, Spanish and French. Her lyrics ranged from simple declarations of love and loneliness to dark stories steeped in the imagery of fairy tales. Her melodies drew from a range of sources, including Mexican folk songs and the music of French chanteuses like Édith Piaf, to whom her highly emotional delivery often drew comparisons.

24 Ianuarie 1859 – Unirea Principatelor Române

Mihail Kogălniceanu şi Unirea din 1859

Astăzi, se vorbeşte mult de Unirea Basarabiei cu România. Când aud, unora li se înfierbântă frunţile şi leşină, alţii nu pot dormi ceasuri întregi după miezul nopţii.  
Unii se arată băţoşi că numai ei ţin la ideea Unirii, iar altora nu le pasă de biata Moldovioară. Unii se tem de Unire ca dracul de tămâie, iar pe alţii îi apucă sughiţul şi nu pot trăi fără ea. Şi unii, şi alţii nu au dreptate. Ideea Unirii, ideea de întregire a neamului nostru e veche, ea a fost grija de fiecare zi a strămoşilor noştri, căci altfel nu mai existam ca popor până în ziua de azi. Această idee a fost în atenţia fiecărui trăitor de pe acest pământ românesc, ea a fost idealul naţional al poporului. Azi ne-a împânzit pecinginea rusească şi Moldova e ameninţată de pieire. Pecinginea ne mănâncă pe dinăuntru şi pe dinafară. Deci, ea trebuie lecuită. Putem scăpa de „această râie”, vorba lui Alexandru Lăpuşneanul, numai prin unirea tuturor românilor.

24 January 1859 – The founding of the modern Romanian national state

It is well known that the 19th Century represents an epoch of strong affirming of nations, of national states, so it was named “the century of nationalities.” Over a relatively short time interval, of several decades, the Greeks, Serbians, Italians, Germans, Bulgarians founded national states that gradually became important actors on the international stage, some of them – such as Germany – even with hegemonic aspirations.
Romanians, too, were among the peoples that succeeded in founding the state in its modern form, although not all of them were included in it, because of objective conditions.
A neo-Latin people, continuator and heir to the ‘Oriental Roman world,’ Romanians – like other peoples of the Ponto-Baltic isthmus, had a contorted history that made them live separated, from a political point of view, for several centuries.
