Lightbody, heavy lyrics

Ascultam ieri ultimul album Snow Patrol și începeam să-mi formez o primă impresie destul de subțire. Asta până când am dat peste melodia de mai jos, din versurile căreia provine și titlul acestui material. M-am convins definitiv că vocalul trupei, Gary Lightbody, este un talent pursânge care alternează momentele de indolență, rezultate în compoziții banale, cu cele de mare sclipire. Iar aici putem pomeni piese cum ar fi Run, Chasing Cars și Crack The Shutters. Remarc la omul ăsta și felul specific în care pronunță anumite cuvinte, dându-le o tentă personal-emoțională. Sunt tare curios care este muza acestui mare romantic care pare a fi el, dar asta e cam greu de aflat, după cum Wiki ne avertizează: "Generally Gary prefers to keep his private life very private".
Dar să revenim la piesa pe care o pomeneam. The Planets Bend Between Us a fost comparată cu Chasing Cars și se referă la casa pe care o deține Lightbody pe plaja din Belfast. În ciuda acestui fapt, clipul a fost filmat în Cape Town.

The winters mar the Earth
It's floor was frozen glass
You slip into my arms
And you quickly correct yourself
Your freezing speech bubbles
Seem to hold your words aloft
I want the smoky clouds of laughter
To swim about me forever more

I will race you to the waterside
And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud
So they could hear it in America
It's all for you

The shells crack under our shoes
Like punctuation points
The planets bend between us
A hundred million suns and stars
The sea filled in this silence
Before you sank those words
And now even in the darkness
I can see how happy you are

I will race you to the waterside
And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud
So they could hear it in a America
It's all for you

Guys, rad cu spume. Tocmai ce am postat acest articol, ca si descopar in statisticile blogului ca a intrat careva care s-a apucat sa traduca textul din romana in engleza. E o optiune Google de care nu stiam pana acum. Iata ce a iesit din textul de mai sus:

Listen yesterday last Snow Patrol album and start to dial my first impression quite thin. That until I came across the track below, which comes from the lyrics and title of this material. I finally convinced that the voice band, Gary Lightbody, is a pure talent that alternate moments of carelessness, resulting in banal compositions, with high sheen. And here we pomeni songs such as Run, Chasing Cars and The Crack shutters. Notice the man and the specific way in which certain words pronounced, giving them a personal-emotional tinge. I'm very curious who is this great romantic muse seems to be it, but this is really hard to learn as Wiki warns us: "Generally Gary prefers to keep his private life very private."
But back to the song that mention. The Planets Bend Between Us was compared with Chasing Cars and refers to a house that has Lightbody on the beach in Belfast. Despite this, the video was filmed in Cape Town.
