"Flying" - Living Colour

Para neutralizar o samba "de qualidade duvidosa" que inevitavelmente chega aos nossos ouvidos nesses dias. Quem gosta de guitarra, como eu, não pode deixar de ver Mr. Vernon Reid em ação, dos 4:50 aos 6:33. Letras abaixo do vídeo. Eu só entendi exatamente do que essa música tratava depois de lê-las.

Adendo: só entendi exatamente do que essa música tratava, de verdade, depois de ler o comentário de um visitante do blog. Ele escreveu: you know this is a tragic love song about September 11th...



I jumped out the window,
to get to the parking-lot,
I'm writing this little song,
on my way down,
never in my life,
have I felt a heat so hot,
I had to get out.

Such a lovely day to go flying...
the sky's so clear the sun is shining...
fate has given me wings,
such a terrible funny thing.

I was gathering my nerve to ask out Carmen,
she glanced out the window,
oh my God,
her room it went away,
just not the way I planned.

Such a lovely day to go flying...
the sky's so clear the sun is shining...
fate has given me wings,
such a terrible funny thing,
funny thing...

I jumped out the window,
to get to the parking-lot,
I'm writing this little song,
on my way down.

Such a lovely day to go flying...
the sky's so clear the sun is shining...
fate has given me wings,
such a terrible funny thing,
funny thing...
such a funny thing...
funny thing...
funny thing...
such a terrible funny thing...

In fact I didn't know it, Anonymous. I only paid attention to the lyrics today, but I didn't realize it has such tragic context. Thanks.
