Fragmentos

Under (a lot) of pressure... Crio o meu universo auditivo, numa tentativa mais ou menos vã de me concentrar. Ouço David Bowie. Cantarolo baixinho fragmentos de algumas das minhas canções favoritas.

Under Pressure
(...)
These are the days it never rains but it pours
(...)
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about,
(...)
Pray tomorrow takes me higher
(...)
Turned away from it all, like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
But it's so slashed and torn
Why why why?
Love love love love

Insanity laughs, under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love

Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For the people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves

This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure

Ashes to ashes
They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed to love
Sordid details following"

Absolute Beginners
I've nothing much to offer
There's nothing much to take
I'm an absolute beginner
And I'm absolutely sane
As long as we're together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we're absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same

O Cardeal disse...

At start, we're all beginners.
At start, we're all hopeful.
Everyone is innocent,
Yet everyone is whole.

Gosto de ti.

Não sabia que eras fã do David. Mas, realmente, pensando melhor uma hiperenciclopédia cultural como tu conhece um bocadinho de tudo... na ponta da língua.

Saudades e beijinhos,
