30 giorni di musica: Day 12 Arcade Fire We used to wait


Dire band che odio è una parola grossa. Per molto tempo io ho avuto un rapporto conflittuale con questa band. Da una parte leggevo le definizioni di capolavoro o di genio puro associate a questo nome e dall’altra io non capivo. Alla fine ci ho rinunciato a capire perchè il mio rapporto con Dea Musica è fatto in un modo quasi esclusivo e so che se qualcosa non mi parla, non mi parla. Però quando invece trovo qualcosa che ha il mio linguaggio lo ammetto senza nessun problema. E’ il caso di Suburb degli Arcade Fire. Un buon disco che sarebbe stato ancora meglio se fosse stato sfrondato di qualche canzone. E questa è  una delle mie due preferite del disco.

“We Used To Wait”
I used to write
I used to write letters
I used to sign my name

I used to sleep at night
Before the flashing light settled deep in my brain

But by the time we met
By the time we met the times had already changed

So I never wrote a letter
I never took my true heart, I never wrote it down

So when the lights cut out
I was lost standing in the wilderness downtown

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

Now it seems strange
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what’s stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive

We used to wait
We used to waste hours just walking around
We used to wait
All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown

We used to wait
We used to wait
We used to wait
Sometimes it never came
We used to wait
Sometimes it never came
We used to wait
I’m still moving through the pain

I’m gonna write
A letter to my true love
I’m gonna sign my name

Like a patient on a table
I wanna walk again
Gonna move through the pain

Now our lives are changing fast
Now our lives are changing fast
Hope that something pure can last
Hope that something pure can last

We used to wait
We used to wait
We used to wait
Sometimes it never came
We used to wait
Sometimes it never came
We used to wait
I’m still moving through the pain
We used to wait
We used to wait
We used to wait

We used to wait for it
We used to wait for it
Now they’re screaming “sing the chorus again! ”

We used to wait for it.
We used to wait for it.
Now we’re screaming “sing the chorus again! ”

I used to wait for it
I used to wait for it
Hear my voice screaming “sing the chorus again! ”

Wait for it!
Wait for it!
Wait for it!
