Canções à Sarah…

22 outubro, 2008

 

É difícil se deparar pela primeira vez com a musicalidade embriagante de Sarah Mclachlan sem se perguntar: “De quem é essa voz?”.

A cantora canadense que nasceu no dia 28 de janeiro de 1968 na cidade de Halifax ganhou projeção no mundo inteiro pelo estilo doce e envolvente de suas composições. Ela não imaginava que faria tanto sucesso quando começou e, talvez, por isso mesmo chegou a admitir: “Eu não posso acreditar que tudo isto aconteceu para mim”.

Mas, com uma discografia sedutora, o sucesso chegou e merecidamente! De 1988 para cá, muita coisa aconteceu:

Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan (2008)

Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan (Deluxe Version) (2008)

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (Legacy Edition) (2008)

Bloom Remix Album (2005)

Afterglow Live (23 Track Exclusive) (2004)

Remixed (2001)

Surfacing (1997)

The Freedom Sessions (1994)

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy (1993)

Solace (1991)

Touch (1989)

Touch (Original Black Cover) (1988)

E… muita coisa ainda vai acontecer, porque Sarah é daquelas cantoras que enchem a alma de quem a escuta, tanto pelas músicas que escolhe para interpretar, como pelas canções que compõe para termos o prazer de ouvir.

 

ADIA

Adia I do believe I failed you

Adia I know I’ve let you down

don’t you know I tried so hard

to love you in my way

it’s easy let it go…

 

Adia I’m empty since you left me

trying to find a way to carry on

I search myself and everyone

to see where we went wrong

 

there’s no one left to finger

there’s no one here to blame

there’s no one left to talk to, honey

and there ain’t no one to buy our innocence

‘cause we are born innocent

believe me Adia, we are still innocent

it’s easy, we all falter

does it matter?

I WILL REMEMBER YOU

I will remember you, will you remember me?

don’t let your life pass you by,

weep not for the memories,

remember the good times that we had?

I let them slip away from us when things got bad

how clearly I first saw you smilin’ in the sun,

wanna feel your warmth upon me

I wanna be the one,

I will remember you

will you remember me?

don’t let your life pass you by

weep not for the memories, 

ANGEL

Spend all your time waiting

for that second chance

for a break that would make it okay

there’s always some reason

to feel not good enough

and it’s hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction

oh beautiful release

memories seep from my veins

let me be empty

oh and weightless and maybe

I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel

fly away from here

from this dark cold hotel room

and the endlessness that you fear

you are pulled from the wreckage

of your silent reverie

you’re in the arms of the angel

may you find some comfort here

POSSESSION

Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide

voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time

the night is my companion, and solitude my guide

would I spend forever here and not be satisfied?

and I would be the one

to hold you down

kiss you so hard

I’ll take your breath away

and after, I’d wipe away the tears

just close your eyes dear

Through this world I’ve stumbled

so many times betrayed

trying to find an honest word to find

the truth enslaved

oh you speak to me in riddles

and you speak to me in rhymes

my body aches to breathe your breath

your words keep me alive

ORDINARY MIRACLE

It’s not that unusual

When everything is beautiful

It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when its time to snow

You don’t need to teach a seed to grow

It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say

Wrapped up for you everyday

Open up and find a way

To give some of your own

BUILDING A MYSTERY

You’re so beautiful

With an edge and charm

but so careful

When I’m in your arms

Cause you’re working

Building a mystery

Holding on and holding it in

Yeah you’re working

Building a mystery

And choosing so carefully

DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO

What ravages of spirit
conjured this temptuous rage
created you a monster
broken by the rules of love
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do …

And I have the sense to recognize that
I don’t know how to let you go
every moment marked
with apparitions of your soul
I’m ever swiftly moving
trying to escape this desire
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
the yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
but I have the sense to recognize

That I don’t know how
to let you go
I don’t know how
to let you go

A glowing ember
burning hot
burning slow
deep within I’m shaken by the violence
of existing for only you
