30 giorni di musica: Day 16 Guess I’m still your child

Il giorno di oggi recitava: una canzone che amavi e ora odi. Ma io non ho canzoni così, al massimo ne ho alcune che non ascolto se non voglio davvero farmi del male. Father son di Peter Gabriel è una di queste. La storia che c’è dietro è bellissima: Peter racconta in musica e parole un giorno che ha trascorso con suo padre. Quel “Guess I’m still your child”… è difficile per me esprimere a parole la tristezza, la nostalgia e il dolore che mi pervade ogni volta.

Father, son
Locked as one
In this empty room
Spine against spine
Yours against mine
Till the warmth comes through

Remember the breakwaters down by the waves
I first found my courage
Knowing daddy could save
I could hold back the tide
With my dad by my side

Dogs, plows and bows
We move through each pose
Struggling in our separate ways
Mantras and hymns
Unfolding limbs
Looking for release through the pain

And the yogi’s eyes are open
Looking up above
He too is dreaming of his daddy’s love
With his dad by his side
Got his dad by his side

Can you recall
How you took me to school
We couldn’t talk much at all
It’s been so many years
And now these tears
Guess I’m still your child

Out on the moors
We take a pause
See how far we have come
You’re moving quite slow
How far can we go
Father and son

With my dad by my side
