Late for the sky


El otro día en el blog de eme vi una entrada que hacía referencia a 31 canciones de Nick Hornby una de esas canciones era Late for the sky de Jackson Browne. El caso es que me sonaba un montón la canción, y caí en la cuenta de que salía en una escena de Taxi Driver. La secuencia en cuestión no tiene desperdicio. Travis, el ser solitario e insomne, consumido por la degeneración de sus propias ideas observa un video musical en el que unas parejas bailan cariñosamente. En el centro del escenario un par de zapatos vacíos. Alienación en estado puro.

Letra: Late for the sky

The words had all been spoken
And somehow the feeling still wasnt right
And still we continued on through the night
Tracing our steps from the beginning
Until they vanished into the air
Trying to understand how our lives has led us there

Looking hard into your eyes
There was nobody Id ever known
Such an empty surprise to feel so alone

Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they dont mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I dont know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

Awake again I cant pretend and I know Im alone
And close to the end of the feeling weve known

How long have I been sleeping
How long have I been drifting alone through the night
How long have I been dreaming I could make it right
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
To be the one you need

Awake again I cant pretend and I know Im alone
And close to the end of the feeling weve known

How long have I been sleeping
How long have I been drifting alone through the night
How long have I been running for that morning flight
Through the whispered promises and the changing light
Of the bed where we both lie
Late for the sky

Déjate de canciones y ponte a estudiar antes de que se acabe el empleo público.

Eligieron bien la B.S.O de Taxi Driver.

Muy buen fragmento, creo que es significativo el hecho de que De Niro mire la Tv apoyando su arma en la cabeza jejeje. Eso tiene una dimensión trágica muy buena.
