Jeff Buckley

Ver/ouvir músicas do Jeff Buckley põe-me numa disposição nostálgica... Que saudades dos meus 16 anos! Foi nesse aniversário que recebi (como prendas) os meus primeiros CDs dele (Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk e o cd-single de Everybody Here Wants You).

Para vos "aguçar" o apetite, deixo-vos com a letra de uma das minhas músicas favoritas: "Lover, You Should've Come Over", do álbum Grace, o único editado antes dele morrer.

Looking out the door
I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
Parading in a wake of sad relations
As their shoes fill up with water

Maybe I'm too young
To keep good love from going wrong
But tonight, you're on my mind so
You never know

Broken down and hungry for your love
With no way to feed it
Where are you tonight?
Child, you know how much I need it.
Too young to hold on
And too old to just break free and run

Sometimes a man gets carried away,
When he feels like he should be having his fun
Much too blind to see the damage he's done
Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
He has no-one...

So I'll wait for you...
And I'll burn
Will I ever see your sweet return?
Oh, will I ever learn?
Oh, Lover, you should've come over
Cause it's not too late.

Lonely is the room the bed is made
The open window lets the rain in
Burning in the corner is the only one
Who dreams he had you with him
My body turns and yearns for a sleep
That won't ever come
It's never over,
My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It's never over,all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her...
It's never over,
All my blood for the sweetness of her laughter...
It's never over,
She's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever...

But maybe I'm just too young to keep good love
From going wrong
Oh... lover you should've come over...

Yes, and I feel too young to hold on
I'm much too old to break free and run
Too deaf, dumb, and blind
To see the damage I've done
Sweet lover, you should've come over
Oh, love, well I'll wait for you
Lover, you should've come over'
Cause it's not too late.

Olá Ritinha!

Obrigado por me teres apresentado Jeff Buckley aqui há uns anos!.. Passados alguns anos de "namoro" não assumido, decidi assumir e comprei Grace e Sketches for my Sweetheart the Drunk.. Ambos têm andado muito presentes na banda sonora dos meus dias...

Beijinhos grandes,
