De volta ao blog ao som de Zander

Que letra. Que som. Um dos melhores álbuns de 2016 (obrigado Spotify ;*). Fiquei tão estupefato com a canção que voltei a postar algo aqui no wordpress (embora eu ainda poste bastante em outras redes sociais do blog como no foicebook ou no estragando com certa – pouca talvez –  frequência).

***
Se eu desperdicei as chances
Que eu me dei de ser infeliz
Foi por não deixar de sempre acreditar
Em tudo que eu fiz
E eu dispenso conselhos pra dar e receber
Eu não preciso fingir
Pra ninguém que eu cresci
Ou deixei de reagir a todo mal que me fez

Tentar seguir padrões
Tentar me encaixar
Onde não é meu lugar
Onde eu não possa cantar
E pode ser que talvez eu chegue no fim do mês
Cansado, quebrado
Mas sem sofrer controle de frequência

Desconectado

No, you don’t know what you will give up
You don’t know what you want
It may take you years to find out
You don’t know what you need
It’s something that may never come to you

Trecho de “Disconnected” do face tô face.

Pra que análise se tenho música?

The line

A resposta pra pergunta final da canção : João.

E que música/letra foda, porra, by the away.

I never thought it could be so hard
We knew the words but who knew they’d reach so far
Now we watch as the pages turn
and chapters end to tear a childhood apart.
I never thought it could end this way
growing up getting older every day.
You’ll find these days are long but life is short
we can’t let it slip away.

We stood like statues watching leaves blow by
Nineteen years have come and gone
we lost it in the blink of an eye.
Still month by month the punches roll on us
watching twenty summers pass
feeling older all the time.

Life can pass you by
we traded our wide eyes
for cold closed minds
and tongues as sharp as knives.

What can the future hold
for kids with hearts like gold?
Turn on your TV set
find out your youth’s been sold.

We had it good those nights
we spent with our best friends
we worried less about where we were
and how it all would end.

We turned our backs
on everything that could go wrong
all along, it was what we had
that kept us going strong.

I thought it would be enough to forget our mistakes,
but they don’t disappear when you look the other way.
We spent so many years living our lives so carelessly,
when did we change?
