Love of my life, can’t you see? Novembro 24, 2016

Hoje relembro Freddie Mercury que nos “abandonou” faz hoje 25 anos. O mundo perdeu imenso e o adolescente que cresceu com a sua música, e aqueles transgressores videos onde tantas vezes se reconhecia, ficou mais só.

Todos nós temos uma música preferida dos Queen? Eu gosto tanto deles que tenho sempre dificuldade nas escolhas. Mas quando, uns tempos antes da morte de Freddie Mercury, eu próprio perdi “um dos amores da minha vida” (ai os amores adolescentes) esta música perseguia-me nos momentos de maior tristeza e lembrança.

Aqui fica a memória de Freddie e desse amor adolescente que a morte afastou de mim.

Love of my life, you’ve hurt me
You’ve broken my heart and, now, you leave me
Love of my life, can’t you see?
Bring it back, bring it back, don’t take it away from me
Because you don’t know what it means to me…

Love of my life don’t leave me
You’ve stolen my love and now desert me
Love of my life, can’t you see?
Bring it back, bring it back, don’t take it away from me
Because you don’t know what it means to me…

You’ll remember when this is blown over,
And everything’s all by the way
When I grow older, I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you, I still love you…

Hurry back, hurry back, don’t take it away from me, because
You don’t know what it means to me

Love of my life,
Love of my life…
Uhhh… Yeah….

Morreu aos 82 um dos maiores poetas da história da música. Deixa uma obra de profunda dimensão literária que cruza os livros e os discos com que deu voz àquele que, quando se afastou para viver num mosteiro budista, era então conhecido como “o silencioso”. Nuno Galopim

“Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Leonard Cohen

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ‘til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of loveDance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
