Hold On

Ratkon tässä löydettyjä sohvanpäällisiä kuntoon huomista pesulareissua varten. Tämä tuli mieleen. Kuunnelkaa ja fiilistelkää. Täydellisesti tämän päivän tunnelmat ...

They hung a sign up in out town
If you live it up, you wont
Live it down
So, she left monte rio, son
Just like a bullet leaves a gun
With charcoal eyes and monroe hips
She went and took that california trip
Well, the moon was gold, her
Hair like wind
She said dont look back just
Come on jim
(chorus)
Oh you got toHold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
You gotta hold on

Well, he gave her a dimestore watch
And a ring made from a spoon
Everyone is looking for someone to blame
But you share my bed, you share my name
Well, go ahead and call the cops
You dont meet nice girls in coffee shops
She said baby, I still love you
Sometimes theres nothin left to do

Oh you got to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here, you got to
Just hold on.

Well, God bless your crooked little heart st. louis got the best of me
I miss your broken-china voice
How I wish you were still here with me

Well, you build it up, you wreck it down
You burn your mansion to the ground
When theres nothing left to keep you here, when
You're falling behind in this
Big blue world

Oh you go to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
You got to hold on

Down by the riverside motel,
Its 10 below and falling
By a 99 cent store she closed her eyes
And started swaying
But its so hard to dance that way
When its cold and theres no music
Well your old hometown is so far away
But, inside your head theres a record
Thats playing, a song called

Hold on, hold on
You really got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
And just hold on.

Kaunista.

Tom Waitsin äänen kuuleminen on minulle paluuta kauaksi menneisyyteen. Lukioaikoihin asti - silloin me häntä paljon kuunneltiin.

Tom Waits on minulle vain etäisesti tuttu nimi. Nyt tuli kuunneltua häntä, kiitos siitä. Olipa erikoinen ja kaunis ääni. hyvä, kun kirjoitit sanat tähän, ihan kaikesta en saanut laulussa selvää. Kappaleessa on hienoja kielikuvia. Tykkäsin.

Kiitos! Rakastan Tow Waitsia!
Tassa voi menna ilta.
