To Build A Home

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills

Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don’t
feel alone

This is a place where I feel at home

Cause, I built a home

for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you


And now it’s time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden
where we planted the seeds

There is a tree as old as me
Branches were
sewn by the color of green

Ground had arose and passed its knees

By
the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top

I climbed the tree to see the
world

When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as
you held onto me

I held on as tightly as you held onto me

Cause, I
built a home

for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me

from you

And now it’s time to leave and turn to dust

El dia que en Nick Drake em va preguntar quina hora era, jo estava en una terrassa prenent una cervesa. No el vaig tornar a veure mai més. Ara només l’escolto.


The Only Moment We Were Alone

L’únic moment que vam estar sols ha estat l’únic moment, no n’hi ha hagut més.

Per viatjar sense moure’s de lloc:

Música al Pub

Aquests dies a Escòcia ens hem trobat molts llocs amb música en directe, sobretot Pubs però també bars petits que feien molts concerts a la setmana, sales de concert una mica més grans, però tampoc gaire, on també feien molts concerts a preus molt assequibles.

Alguns exemples: en un Pub dos individus d’edat avançada (un ens va explicar que havia sigut Brigadista internacional i ens va cridar el "No passaran" i alguna cosa contra Franco), aquests dos personatges tocaven i cantaven cançons tradicionals escoceses; en diversos pubs més grups tocant versions de música més actual; vam estar dinant en un Pub-restaurant mentre tocava una big band (impressionant), unes 15 persones tocant mentre la gent dinava i prenia "pints".

En definitiva, una bona experiència musical també.
