i surrender

Antigamente havia um programa de rádio que tinha como slogan a frase: “Pouco para dizer, muito para escutar, tudo para sentir”. Estou mais ou menos numa fase assim, de pouco para dizer. Pelo menos por enquanto. E como há sempre muito para escutar, aqui fica uma canção fabulosa do David Sylvian, I Surrender, do disco Dead Bees on A Cake, de 1999. Como se percebe, a canção tem o dedo do Ryuichi Sakamoto. E, já agora, a guitarra de Marc Ribot. E a letra é precisamente isso: tudo para sentir.



I opened up the pathway of the heart
The flowers died embittered from the start
That night I crossed the bridge of sighs and I surrendered

I looked back and glimpsed the outline of a boy
His life of sorrows now collapsing into joy
And tonight the stars are all aligned and I surrender

My mother cries beneath a southern sky and I surrender

Recording angels and the poets of the night
Bring back the trophies of the battles that we fight
Searchlights fill the open skies and I surrender

Outrageous cries of love have called you back
Derailed the trains of thought, demolished wayward tracks
You tell me I've no need to wonder why I just surrender

I stand too close to see the sleight of hand
How she found this child inside the frightened man
Tonight I'm learning how to fly and I surrender

I've travelled all this way for your embrace
Enraptured by the recognition on your face
Hold me now while my old life dies tonight and I surrender

My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender

An ancient evening just before the fall
The light in your eyes, the meaning of it all
Birds fly and fill the summer skies and I surrender

She throws the burning books into the sea
"Come find the meaning of the word inside of me"
It's alright the stars are all aligned and I surrender

My mother cries beneath the moonlit skies and I surrender

My body turns to ashes in her hands
The disappearing world of footprints in the sand
Tell me now that this love will never die and I'll surrender

My mother cries beneath the open skies and I surrender
