Músicas da Minha Vida #1

16.11.14

Há temas que conjugam a letra e o ambiente musical na perfeição. Sinto-me tentada a partilhar, apesar de ter sido sempre reticente a divulgar músicas aqui no blog (em respeito aos gostos de cada um).


Recentemente descobri alguns temas do cd Imagine Project do pianista Herbie Hancock, entre eles a cover Don't Give Up (originalmente do Peter Gabriel em dueto com a Kate Bush) cantada nesta versão pela Pink e pelo John Legend num instrumental inspirador. Certas "coincidências" têm destas coisas. Dão-nos as músicas do momento, com a mensagem perfeita e o ambiente que nos sacode a alma.

In this proud land we grew up strong 
we were wanted all along 
I was taught to fight, taught to win 
I never thought I could fail 

no fight left or so it seems 
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name 
but no one wants you when you lose 

don't give up 
'cos you have friends 
don't give up 
you're not beaten yet 
don't give up 
I know you can make it good 

though I saw it all around 
never thought I could be affected 
thought that we'd be the last to go 
it is so strange the way things turn 

drove the night toward my home 
the place that I was born, on the lakeside 
as daylight broke, I saw the earth 
the trees had burned down to the ground 

don't give up 
you still have us 
don't give up 
we don't need much of anything 
don't give up 

'cause somewhere there's a place 
where we belong 

rest your head 
you worry too much 
it's going to be alright 
when times get rough 
you can fall back on us 
don't give up 
please don't give up 

'got to walk out of here 
I can't take anymore 
going to stand on that bridge 
keep my eyes down below 
whatever may come 
and whatever may go 
that river's flowing 
that river's flowing 

moved on to another town 
tried hard to settle down 
for every job, so many men 
so many men no-one needs 

don't give up 
'cause you have friends 
don't give up 
you're not the only one 
don't give up 
no reason to be ashamed 
don't give up 

you still have us 
don't give up now 
we're proud of who you are 
don't give up 
you know it's never been easy 
don't give up 
'cause I believe there's the a place 
there's a place where we belong
