Promises

sábado, 3 de abril de 2010


Todos tenemos algunas canciones que no nos cansamos de escuchar una y otra vez y que, por más tiempo que pase, nos siguen emocionando de la misma manera. Promises es una de las mías. Marcó una época de mi vida en la que cierta persona me obligaba a escuchar a mil grupos diferentes (no paró hasta que encontró uno que me gustó de verdad, que fue Megadeth), y sé que tendré 80 años y seguiré cantándola (la original; la versión española, no XD).


Two hearts that shouldn’t
talk to each other, become close
in a town much like a prison cell.

People speak our names
on the street in hushed tones.
Oh, the stories they’d tell,
if anyone would listen.

You come from a town where
people don’t bother saying hello
unless somebody’s born or dies.

And I come from a place where they
drag your hopes through the mud
because their own dreams are all dying.

And when we walk down the street
the wind sings our name in rebel songs.
The sounds of the night should make us anxious,
but it’s much too late when the fear is gone.

I will meet you in the next life, I promise you,
where we can be together, I promise you,
I will wait till then in heaven, I promise you,
I promise, I promise...

There’s so many fighting
to get past the pearly gates,
but nobody ever wants to die or get saved.

Their intentions aren’t that good
and I can smell the asphalt,
that’s their personal road to hell being paved.

And when we walk down the street
the wind sings our name in rebel songs,
but it’s much to late when the fear is gone.

I will meet you in the next life, I promise you,
where we can be together, I promise you,
I will wait till then in heaven, I promise you,
I promise, I promise...
