Talking to my head once in my lifetime

Once In A Lifetime – Talking Heads

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack 
And you may find yourself in another part of the world 
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile 
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife 
And you may ask yourself 
Well…How did I get here? 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone 
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground 

And you may ask yourself 
How do I work this? 
And you may ask yourself 
Where is that large automobile? 
And you may tell yourself 
This is not my beautiful house 
And you may tell yourself 
This is not my beautiful wife 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone 
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground 

Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 

Water dissolving…and water removing 
There is water at the bottom of the ocean 
Under the water, carry the water at the bottom of the ocean 
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
Into the silent water 
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone 
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground 

And you may ask yourself 
What is that beautiful house? 
And you may ask yourself 
Where does that highway go to? 
And you may ask yourself 
Am I right?…Am I wrong? 
And you may say to yourself yourself 
My God!…What have I done?! 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
Into the silent water 
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground 

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down 
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground 
Into the blue again
After the money’s gone 
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground 

Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Look where my hand was 
Time isn’t holding up 
Time is an asterisk 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Same as it ever was… 
Yeah, the twister comes 
Here comes the twister 
Same as it ever was…

Comme Walid l’a si justement remarqué, mes billets actuels sont plus musicaux que verbaux. En attendant que ma voix redevienne « porteuse » de messages, je fais chanter ceux qui m’inspirent…

Si vous lisez entre les lignes, toutes ces chansons portent un message quand même…pour moi…

Lyrics :

The dimming of the light makes the picture clearer
It’s just an old photograph
There’s nothing to hide
When the world was just beginning

I memorized a face so it’s not forgotten
I hear the wind whistlin’
Come back anytime
And we’ll mix our lives together
Heaven knows- what keeps mankind alive
Every hand- goes searching for its partner
In crime- under chairs and behind tables
Connecting- to places we have known
I’m looking for a

Home- where the wheels are turning
Home- why I keep returning
Home- where my world is breaking in two
Home- with the neighbors fighting
Home- always so exciting
Home- were my parents telling the truth?
Home- such a funny feeling
Home- no-one ever speaking
Home- with our bodies touching
Home- and the cam’ras watching
Home- will infect what ever you do
We’re Home- comes to life from outa the blue

Tiny little boats on a beach at sunset
I took a drink from a jar
and into my head
Familiar smells and flavors

Vehicles are stuck on the plains of heaven
I see their wheels spinning round
and everywhere
I can hear those people saying

That the eye- is the measure of the man
You can fly- from the stuff that still surrounds you
We’re home- and the band keeps marchin’ on
Connecting- to every living soul
Compassion- for things I’ll never know
