oggi questa canzone l'ho sentita 3 volte...ma non volontariamente...era il mio ipod a decidere...e l'ha messa per ben tre volte! no nd iseguito però...
cmq è stupenda...
L'originale la cantava TimBuckley...ma io ascolto sempre la versione che ha cantato l'angelico figlio, e secondo me più bravo!!!!! Jeff...
l'ha cantata nel 1991, quando ancora nessuno lo conosceva, al cocnerto in memoria del padre
Il testo della canzone è molto toccante...
Tim che ha abbandonato Jeff, mentre era ancora nel pancioe della mamma, per andarea vivere con un'altra, dedica questa caznone a MaryGuibert (madre di Jeff) e al piccolo che ha nemmeno un anno...
Jeff ceh a 25 anni la ricanta in maniera eccellente lasciando tutti d istucco (e non era un barbatrucco!!), Jeff che avrà visto i lpadre 2 3 votle in vita sua, ma è così simile a lui, nell'aspetto fisico, nella voce e nella sofferenza...
ecco i ltesto:

I never asked to be your mountain
I never asked to fly
Remember when you came to me
And told me of his lies
You didn't understand my love
You don't know why I try
And the rain was falling on that day
And damn the reason why

The flying pisces sails for time
Tells me of my child
Wrapped in bitter tales and heartache
He begs for just a smile
O he never asked to be her mountain
He never asked to fly
Through his eye he comes his love
And tells her not to cry

She says, "your scoundrel father flies
With a dancer called a queen
With her stolen cards he plays
And laughs, but never wins"
O the child dreams to be his hands
In the counting of the rain
But only barren breasts he feels
For her milk will never drain

And as I die I can't remember
Where I saw the rain
Could it be that her laughter
Drove me down again?
Charming dancer will you stop
Stop and talk to me?
Is there someone else you feel
In your dreams? you will, you see
In midnight gazes
I've found you far from me
If you lead me on
Please leave me down

O flying flying fish
Come and flutter by my door:
Yes you can drink my lies
If first you read my eyes:
Each one is titled
"I'm drowning back to you":
And I can't swim your waters
And you can't walk my lands:
I'm sailing all my sins
And i'm climbing all my fears
And soon now i'll fly

My love is the flower
that lies among the graves
My love is the thousand souls
that it saves
And all the insane madmen tell me
I'm not as love behaves
But lay me not in lands of men
But spread my ash along the waves

I wanna feel the tide pull to me
like a woman drunken sin
I wanna feel the fish swim through me
let the water tug my skin
Wrapped around the pebble
that you choose to warm your hand
Just as I dream every day
as I pray you'll understand

O I never asked to be your mountain
I never asked to fly
Remember when you came to me
And told me of his lies
You didn't understand my love
You don't know why I try
And the rain was falling on that day
Damn the reason why
Damn the reason why

Sweet lover, will you come back
And love me for a while?
Please take my hand
Come and leave your fears behind

I've been gone too long
Now I'm home to stay
Don't leave me again this way
Don't leave me again this way
Don't leave me again this way
Sweet sweet sweet lover
Oh oh please
Oh please
Oh please
Please come home
Come home
Please come home
Please come home
Please please come home
Please please please please please
