Discos de sempre (2) - This Is The Sea, The Waterboys

Isto é o mar!
1985, Myke Scott e os seus The Waterboys lançam um disco que me tem acompanhado ao longo dos anos, tocando sempre e incessantemente. Um disco que ouço da primeira à última música com um prazer renovado e redobrado.



Título: This Is The Sea
Autor: The Waterboys
Ano: 1985

Alinhamento:
1 - Don't Bang The Drum
2 - The Whole Of The Moon
3 - Spirit
4 - The Pan Within
5 - Medicine Bow
6 - Old England
7 - Be My Enemy
8 - Trumpets
9 - This Is The Sea

A música que dá título ao álbum é, para mim, o melhor momento de todo o disco, embora a mais conhecida seja, talvez, a 2ª música do alinhamento do disco.
Mas até pela letra deste This Is The Sea, esta é a minha música de eleição.

Abaixo, a letra e um video de This Is The Sea.

These things you keep
you better throw them away
Turn your back
on your soulless days
Once you were tethered
now you are free
Once you were tethered
now you are free
That was the river
this is the sea

If you're feeling weary
maybe been alone too long
or else you've been suffering from
a few too many plans that have gone wrong
and you're trying to remember
how fine your life used to be
running around banging your drum
like it's nineteen-seventy-three
Well that was the river
this is the sea

You say you've got trouble
You say you've got pain
You say you've got nothin to hold on to
nothing to trust, nothing but chains
You've been scouring your conscience
and raking through your memory
scouring your conscience
and raking through your memory
But that was the river
this is the sea

I can see you wavering
as you try to decide
You've got a war in your head
and it's tearing you up inside
You're trying to make sense
of something that you just don't see
You're trying to make sense now
and you know you once held the key
But that was the river
this is the sea

Now I hear there's a train
It's coming down the line
It's yours if you hurry
you've got still enough time
and you don't need no ticket
and you don't pay no fee
You don't need a ticket
You don't pay a fee
That was the river
this is the sea
