♬ Måneskin – THE LONELIEST

Lyric

“THE LONELIEST”

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

There’s a few lines that I have wrote
In case of death, that’s what I want, that’s what I want
So don’t be sad when I’ll be gone
There’s just one thing I hope you know, I loved you so

‘Cause I don’t even care about the time I’ve got left here
The only thing I know now is that I wanna spend it
With you, with you nobody else here
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

I’m sorry but I gotta go
If you’ll ever miss me give this song another go

And I just keep on thinking how you made me feel better
And all the crazy little things that we did together
In the end, in the end, it doesn’t matter
If tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

You’ll be the saddest part of me
A part of me that will never be mine
It’s obvious
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest
You’re still the oxygen I breathe
I see your face when I close my eyes
It’s torturous
Tonight is gonna be the loneliest

♬ The Midnight – Heart Worth Breaking

LYRIC

All I want is to feel how deep it really is
Somehow we always get lost in the bullshit
Another night getting high in your dad’s car
I think maybe we’re bigger than we think we are

Baby, you’re better than you think you are

I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
That’s all I really wanna say
I’m sorry my hands are shaking
I don’t normally feel this way

But my whole life is just the chances I’m not taking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking

All I want is to feel this moment
You think happiness is somewhere else
I just wanna always treat you well but
Maybe first I have to love myself

I don’t know why you love me
I’m gonna try and love me
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
That’s all I really wanna say
I’m sorry my hands are shaking
I don’t normally feel this way

But my whole life is just the chances I’m not taking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking

I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
That’s all I really wanna say
I’m sorry my hands are shaking
I don’t normally feel this way

But my whole life is just the chances I’m not taking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart
I just wanna have a heart worth breaking

The extreme heat blocks nuclear power plants in France and Switzerland

Nuclear power plants need the continuous cooling of the reactors, which usually takes place through water drawn from rivers, lakes or seas that are close to the power plants themselves. The record temperatures we are witnessing these days, among other things, are also posing serious obstacles to the cooling process of nuclear power plants, especially in France.

According to Bloomberg, France’s nuclear reactors were brought to 46% of their capacity on Friday, after another contraction in operating regimes was introduced earlier in the week. Not without repercussions for the French economy, which usually benefits from the export of energy abroad and which in this case, for the first time, is forced to import.

Bloomberg prices in France

The reduction of the energy output of the French plants is wanted by the local authorities. Normally, in fact, the water used to cool the reactors, which has now risen to considerable temperatures, is sent back to the rivers or streams from which it was originally drawn. This can create a further rise in temperatures, and unpleasant consequences for the fauna and flora.

The rise in temperatures on the Garonne will force to further reduce the output of two power plants on the Rhone River in the coming days, when a further increase in temperatures is expected, or in any case a maintenance compared to the levels of the last few days. EDF, the largest French energy company, has in fact announced further cuts for the next few weeks.

The rise in temperatures is only one of the factors that is leading to the increase in the cost of energy, already high due to the war in Ukraine and the blocking of supplies from Russia. In the last week alone, the cost of energy has increased by 18% to around 500 € / MWh (in 2021 the cost was less than 100 € per MWh). We are at an all-time high while, according to the EDF style, 2022 will be the worst year in terms of energy produced compared to the last 30 years.

The French reactors already had corrosion problems in the first part of the year, which led to the temporary closure of a large number of them, and the consequent reduction in electricity production. Corrosion problems are increasing and increasingly require a large-scale plan lasting several years to ensure normal nuclear power generation schemes in France.

In addition, local authorities are also taking similar decisions in Switzerland. In particular, the Beznau plant uses the Aare river as it is done in France on the Garonne and, for the same reasons, it was decided to limit the production capacity of the two reactors, which normally produce around 6000 gigawatt hours of electricity per year. Production at the Beznau plant was “adjusted throughout the day to the current Aare temperature so that the requirements are always met,” a plant spokesperson said according to CNBC.

France and Switzerland are not the only countries that have suffered consequences for energy production due to temperatures: something very similar is happening in Texas.

♬ Purple Disco Machine, Sophie and the Giants – IN THE DARK

Purple Disco Machine's new single is out. The song came out just today, a few days ago ...

LYRICS
I got lost in the wilderness
I thought I was surely falling apart
The pain you caused cut so deep
Truly was a work of art

I don’t care what they say, I’m gonna do it anyway
(Oh, oh)
It’s the only thing I see, always staring back at me
(Oh)

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Pulled me in with your words so sweet
Every time I ignore the sign
Redemption’s mine on the day I leave
Falling for you was my only crime

I don’t care what they say, I’m gonna do it anyway
(Oh, oh)
It’s the only thing I see, always staring back at me
(Oh)

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?

(Am I going under?)
(Should this heart surrender?)
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh

I’ve been left in the dark, standing cold in the night
Memories of your taste, I’ve been holding on tight
Falling apart and I’m living a lie
All of this time I’ve been loving a liar

Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?
Ooh
Am I going under?
Ooh
Should my heart surrender?

LYRIC
Come up to meet you
Tell you I’m sorry
Don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science
Science and progress
Don’t speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start
Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m going back to the start
