Solveig Slettahjell



Solveig Slettahjell es una cantante, compositora y música noruega que me gusta mucho. Sus discos son muy eclécticos y lo mismo despacha delicados country & western que baladas nórdicas o piezas electrónicas.

En este caso he programado una pieza muy poética de mi querido Tom Waits.

Del norte no solo llega buena literatura, también buena música.

En el día del libro y de San Jorge mi regalo es este. El año que viene mandaré una rosa.



Phone's off the hook
No one knows where we are
It's a long time since I
Drank champagne
The ocean is blue
As blue as your eyes
I'm gonna take it with me
When I go

Old long since gone
Now way back when
We lived in Coney Island
Ain't no good thing
Ever dies
I'm gonna take it with me
When I go

Far far away a train
Whistle blows
Wherever you're goin
Wherever you've been
Waving good bye at the end
Of the day
You're up and you're over
And you're far away

Always for you, and
Forever yours
It felt just like the old days
We fell asleep on Beaula's porch
I'm gonna take it with me
When I go

All broken down by
The side of the road
I was never more alive or
Alone
I've worn the faces off
All the cards
I'm gonna take it with me
When I go

Children are playing
At the end of the day
Strangers are singing
On our lawn
It's got to be more
Than flesh and bone
All that you're loved
Is all you own

In a land there's a town
And in that town there's
A house
And in that house
There's a woman
And in that woman
There's a hart I love
I'm gonna take it
With me when I go
I'm gonna take it
With me when I go

ACTUALIZACIÓN AGOSTO 2010

Por alguna razón quien colocó el video en youtube lo ha retirado. Por ello he tenido que publicar uno distinto con lo que se altera el sentido del texto.
