    The Waterboys - This Is The Sea

    6:30

    The Waterboys - This Is The Sea, This Is The Sea (1985)

    Lyrics:

    These things you keep
    You'd better throw them away
    You wanna turn your back
    On your soulless days
    Once you were tethered
    And now you are free
    Once you were tethered
    Well now you are free
    That was the river
    This is the sea!

    Now if you're feelin' weary
    If you've been alone too long
    Maybe 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 1973
    Well that was the river
    This is the sea

    Now you say you've got trouble
    You say you've got pain
    You say've got nothing left to believe in
    Nothing to hold on to
    Nothing to trust
    Nothing but chains
    You're scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    Scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    But that was the river
    This is the sea, yeah

    Now 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 can't see
    Trying to make sense now
    And you know you once held the key
    But that was the river
    And this is the sea
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Now i hear there's a train
    It's coming on 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
    No you don't need no ticket
    You don't pay no fee
    Because that was the river
    And this is the sea

    That was the river...
    This is the sea...

    Behold the sea

    The Waterboys: Fishermans Blues

    4:56

    Como canción de fin de semana os propongo este blues del pescador, obra de los conocidos grandes-desconocidos, The Waterboys, del inconmensurable Mike Scott, un tema cargado de reminiscencias celtas de aires alegres y desenfadados, aromas a taberna de puerto marinero, humo de cigarros y olor a güisqui.
    Alfredo Webmaster


    Querría ser pescador
    y vagar por los mares,
    lejos de tierra firme
    y sus amargos recuerdos,
    sacando mi línea dulce
    con abandono y amor.
    Sin techo que me contenga
    salvo el cielo estrellado arriba,
    con luz en mi cabeza,
    contigo en mis brazos...
    Querría ser maquinista
    en un tren que rueda febril
    de cabeza hacia el interior
    como un cañón en la lluvia.
    Con el traqueteo de los rieles
    y el ardor del carbón.
    Contar los pueblos que pasan en un parpadeo
    y la noche que está llena de alma;
    con luz en mi cabeza,
    contigo en mis brazos...
    Y sé que me liberaré
    de las ataduras que me retienen
    y las cadenas en torno a mí
    caerán, finalmente,
    y ese día grande y fatal
    te llevaré en mi mano,
    montaré en un tren,
    seré el pescador.
    Con luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos...
    Luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos.
    Luz en mi cabeza,
    tú...
    Con luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos...

    The Waterboys - Fishermans Blues

    4:35

    I wish I was a fisherman
    tumblin' on the seas
    far away from dry land
    and it's bitter memories
    castin' out my sweet line
    with abandonment and love
    no ceiling bearin' down on me
    save the starry sky above
    with light in my head
    with you in my arms...
    i wish i was the brakeman
    on a hurtlin fevered train
    crashin head long into the heartland
    like a cannon in the rain
    with the feelin of the sleepers
    and the burnin of the coal
    countin the towns flashin by
    and a night that's full of soul
    with light in my head
    with you in my arms...

    And I know I will be loosened
    from the bonds that hold me fast
    and the chains all around me
    will fall away at last
    and on that grand and fateful day
    I will take thee in my hand
    I will ride on a train
    I will be the fisherman
    With light in my head
    You in my arms...

    Light in my head
    You in my arms...

    Light in my head
    You...

    With light in my head
    You in my arms...

    Waterboys • The Whole of the Moon • 1985 Concert

    5:01

    The Whole of the Moon
    -----------------------
    I pictured a rainbow
    You held in your hands
    I had flashes
    But you saw then plan
    I wondered out in the world for years
    While you just stayed in your room
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon!
    The whole of the moon!

    You were there at the turnstiles
    With the wind at your heels
    You stretched for the stars
    And you know how it feels
    To reach too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon!

    I was grounded
    While you filled the skies
    I was dumbfounded by truths
    You cut through lies
    I saw the rain-dirty valley
    You saw brigadoon
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon!

    I spoke about wings
    You just flew
    I wondered, I guessed, and I tried
    You just knew
    I sighed
    But you swooned
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon!
    The whole of the moon!

    With a torch in your pocket
    And the wind at your heels
    You climbed on the ladder
    And you know how it feels
    To reach too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon!
    The whole of the moon!

    Unicorns and cannonballs,
    Palaces and piers,
    Trumpets, towers, and tenemets,
    Wide oceans full of tears,
    Flag, rags, ferry boats,
    Scimitars and scarves,
    Every precious dream and vision
    Underneath the stars

    You climbed on the ladder
    With the wind in your sails
    You came like a comet
    Blazing your trail
    Too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon!

    The Waterboys - Too Close To Heaven

    so won't you smile for me baby ?
    ..
    ..
    ..
    ..
    ..

    Song lyrics to Too Close To Heaven:
    All your trouble will be over, so will your pain
    you are gonna see those blue skies bursting right through the rain
    The higher you climb, the lower you fall
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Now in the morning you can cry all you want to
    - we'll spend the whole day weeping
    Right now I want you to lay down your weary head
    and let me see you sleeping
    You've been walking around baby, inflamed and ashamed
    feeling like you're one inch tall
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    You're way too hard on yourself baby
    - you got some pretty basic things wrong
    You wouldn't believe me if I told you why I wrote you into this song
    You're looking at your heart baby, and you're calling it black
    but like Icarus and like Saul
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Now I know this hurt you're feeling - I've felt these same things too
    I've got spaces way down deep inside of me that are just the same as you
    You wanna wrap your arms around your head, turn out the lights
    and roll yourself into a ball
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Are you blinded by the brilliance ?
    Are you dazzled by the Light ?
    Why is it I see nothing but emptiness in your tired beaten eyes
    that once were bright
    I know you just can't help but run when you hear that sweet voice call
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    I walked a mile for you baby
    so won't you smile for me baby ?

    The Waterboys She is so beautiful

    3:56

    Some beautiful pictures for the woman that made my world beautiful...

    ----Lyrics----

    She is so beautiful
    I've got no words to describe
    The way she makes me feel inside
    I'm flying solo
    As free and as light as a bird
    yet I could lay my wings down in a moment
    To guard and comfort her

    She is so beautiful
    light-filled, loving and wise
    Laughter dancing in her eyes
    all my road is before me
    And I never did plan on a wife
    yet she's the most beautiful soul
    I ever have met in this life

    For she is like a song
    she is like a ray of light
    She is like children praying
    like harps and bells and cymbals playing
    And she is like a wind
    moving, soothing, bringing joy
    And here am I, destroyed
    she is so beautiful
    I don't know what I'm going to do when I leave
    except grieve

    breathe slow we'll begin
    Close your eyes
    breathe slow and we will begin
    To look together
    for the Pan within

    swing your hips
    loose your head, and let it spin
    Swing your hips

    loose you head, and let it spin
    And we will look together
    for the Pan within

    Close your eyes

    To look together
    for the Pan within

    Put your face in my window
    breathe a night full of treasures
    The wind is delicious
    sweet and wild with the promise of pleasure
    The stars are alive
    and nights like these
    Were born to be
    sanctified by you and me
    Lovers, thieves, fools and pretenders
    and all we gotta do is surrender

    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    And we will look together
    for the Pan within
    When to be with you
    is not a sin
    When to be with you, oh just to be with you
    is not a sin
    We will look together

    From Fisherman's Box (1988).

    Lyrics:

    This is a wide world we travel
    and our paths rarely cross
    and our time together
    will soon be at an end.

    So we'll make the most of this
    for who knows when we two may meet again.

    Could be months
    could be years
    till we two find ourselves
    standing here again.

    So until then, my friend
    I wish for you
    that your house is always warm
    the perfect port in any storm
    and may the saints & angels
    watch over you.

    May the saints & angels
    watch over you.

    The Waterboys - Red Army Blues, A Pagan Place (1984)

    Lyrics:

    When I left my home and my family
    My mother said to me
    Son, it's not how many Germans you kill that counts
    It's how many people you set free!

    So I packed my bags
    Brushed my cap
    Walked out into the world
    Seventeen years old
    Never kissed a girl

    Took the train to Voronezh
    That was as far as it would go
    Changed my sacks for a uniform
    Bit my lip against the snow
    I prayed for mother Russia
    In the summer of '43
    And as we drove the Germans back
    I really believed
    That God was listening to me

    We howled into Berlin
    Tore the smoking buildings down
    Raised the red flag high
    Burnt the reichstag brown
    I saw my first American
    And he looked a lot like me
    He had the same kinda farmer's face
    Said he'd come from some place called Hazzard, Tennessee

    Then the war was over
    My discharge papers came
    Me and twenty hundred others
    Went to Stettiner for the train
    Kiev! said the commissar
    From there your own way home
    But I never got to Kiev
    We never came by home
    Train went north to the Taiga
    We were stripped and marched in file
    Up the great siberian road
    For miles and miles and miles and miles
    Dressed in stripes and tatters
    In a gulag left to die
    All because Comrade Stalin was scared that
    We'd become too westernized!

    Used to love my country
    Used to be so young
    Used to believe that life was
    The best song ever sung
    I would have died for my country
    In 1945
    But now only one thing remains
    But now only one thing remains
    But now only one thing remains
    But now only one thing remains
    The brute will to survive!

    and nights like these
    Were born to be
    sanctified by you and me
    Lovers, thieves, fools and pretenders
    and all we gotta do is surrender

    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    And we will look together
    for the Pan within
    When to be with you
    is not a sin
    When to be with you, oh just to be with you
    is not a sin
    We will look together
    for the Pan within
