That leaving feeling…

Porque, de vez em quando, todos temos vontade de partir, de deixar tudo para trás, de fugir do passado e do futuro.

A música é de Stuart Staples (Tindersticks), do seu 1.º álbum a solo e tem a participação especial de Lhasa de Sela. Acho que o dueto funciona muito bem e é neste registo que gosto de ouvir Lhasa (que me perdoem os verdadeiros fãs dela, mas não gosto particularmente do exercício vocal que ela costuma fazer, levando a voz mais ao limite, mas o defeito há-de ser meu, com certeza).

Stuart Staples com Lhasa de Sela – "That leaving feeling"

"That leaving feeling"

Stuart Staples:
I get that leaving feeling
This time it's here to stay
I've been weighing up the pulling
And pushing me away
The past is so heavy
But it's something I can't leave
And this future is so certain
It just pushes me to my knees

Is that your heart talking
Or just that befuddled mind
The people that you love
They change when you leave them behind

Stuart Staples:
But this rope that is pulling
Is whittled down to a thread
And if I don't start climbing
Pretty soon it'll be over my head

We all have dreams of leaving
We all want to make a new start
Go and pack a little suitcase
With the pieces of our hearts
All those worries and those sorrows
We can just toss them away
Buy a coffee and a paper
And go step on to a train

Stuart Staples:
But I've been too long wandering
Limping around this town
With everything that's pulling me
Is pulling me further down

Go make all your excuses
Go say all your goodbyes
But take a look in the mirror
It's the hardest one you'll ever find
All those worries and those sorrows
You can just toss them away
Go find a new tomorrow
And forget about your yesterdays
So go and pat your kids
And kiss your dog goodbye
Leave your keys on the nail
With the sadness that's in your eyes

Stuart Staples:
Maybe tomorrow, today looks like it's bringing rain
And I'll leave everything in order
I don't want nothing standing in my way
There are jobs that need tending
And the logs that are waiting to stack
And I'll leave everything in order
I don't want nothing that's going to hold me back
