Appalachian Springs

 

Does anybody know where we’re really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know that thing you cannot trade or ever own
Does anybody know where we’re really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know that thing we cannot trade or ever own

Solitude, a sacred mood
Appalachian Springs, all my days
Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
Saw myself, and I wasn’t quite right – are you?
(And I wasn’t quite right)

Does anybody know where we’re really gonna go?
I was looking for answers in the soul
You know feelings that a man can’t control
I let the fire burn bright in the dead of night
As the only cheat here, I told a lie
I said that I would never be on this side

Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
And I saw myself, and it wasn’t quite right
Took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
I keep it together
Yeah-yeah-aaah, aah-aah-aaah
Yaah-aaah-aah, ooh-ooh-aah-aah

And I was waiting for my number called
Like a bingo calling, singing in his soul
He said I’m number 69, I said okay
‘Cause solitude, my sacred mood
Appalachian springs, all my days

Took a step to the left, took a step to the right
And I keep it together, you know I’m not right
Took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
I’m gonna keep it together

Come on, yeah come on, ah come on

Does anybody know where we’re really gonna go?
I was wondering if we got that real soul
You know the thing we cannot trade or ever own, or ever own
Or ever own, or ever own, or ever own, or ever own
Or ever own, or ever own, or ever own, or ever own

Oh Lord, I’m coming home
Feel so young, I don’t know where I have gone
I took a step to the left, I took a step to the right
And I saw myself, and I wasn’t quite right
Yeah, slip into the dreams
Slipping out, slipping in and out of the dream

João Por baixo, de lado, por cima

O João é Geógrafo físico e produtor de metano. Para além da geografia e da escrita, interessa-se também por fotografia, cinema e bolos da pastelaria do Manuel Natário em Viana do Castelo. E por mulheres, também. Não necessariamente por esta ordem, e nem sempre em separado. É um palhaço, não raras vezes um idiota, e até mesmo um cabrão, segundo opiniões conhecidas.

    1. É um belíssimo tema dos The Verve, efectivamente. O vídeo, que julgo ser feito por apreciadores e não um vídeo oficial da banda, está bem conseguido, penso que faz uma boa interpretação da sonoridade e da letra.
