Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun


A verdade é aterradora…

Ainda nos anos infames anos 90 mostraram-me um álbum da Lisa Ekdahl e fiquei fã. Não uma fã incondicional, porque para as canções em sueco não há paciência! Mas gosto da voz dela e do sotaque.

É só para quem gosta de bombons auditivos.

Lisa Ekdahl – Now or never

Lisa Ekdahl – It Had to Be You

Edit: Deixou de dar para pôr aqui este vídeo. Vejam-no no YouTube.

A música mais conhecida de Tim Buckley, músico experimentalista dos anos 60, ao vivo.
É provável que conheçam melhor a versão do This Mortal Coil project. Gosto das duas versões mas prefiro a de Buckley, sem dúvida.
A versão original do álbum Starsailor do Tim Buckley está aqui.

Tim Buckley – Song to the Siren

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
For you sing, touch me not,
touch me not, come back tomorrow:
O my heart, o my heart shies from the sorrow

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am troubled at the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with death my bride?
Hear me sing, swim to me,
swim to me, let me enfold you:
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you
