After changes we are more or less the same

Publicado por as 15:05 em Geral

I am just a poor boy and my storys seldom told
Ive squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises
All lies and jest, still the man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest, hmmmm

When I left my home and my family, I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station, runnin scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters, where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Li la li…

Asking only workmans wages, I come lookin for a job, but I get no offers
Just a comeon from the whores on 7th avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there

Now the years are rolling by me, they are rockin even me
I am older than I once was, and younger than Ill be, thats not unusual
No it isnt strange, after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same

Li la li…

And Im laying out my winter clothes, wishing I was gone, goin home
Where the new york city winters arent bleedin me, leadin me to go home

In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down or cut him
til he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains
Yes he still remains

Li la li…

    Que melhor forma para iniciar o ano de 2007 do que com o magnífico tema “The Boxer” da dupla Simon&Garfunkel, gravado no mítico concerto de Central Park, em Nova Iorque, em 19 de Setembro de 1981? Uma pérola! Quanto à expressão destacada convenhamos que se aplica, genericamente, a uma grande maioria das pessoas. Um Feliz Ano de 2007 para o autor deste blog e para todos os visitantes do mesmo.
