Amor a lo haitiano*

No estaba muerta, andaba de parranda ¡!
Y pinche cruda, caray.

Dado que todo mundo anda con la onda navideña, decidí hacer un regalo a todo habitante de Cutrelandia. Una rola absolutamente genial de CocoRosie, compuesta de diversas canciones de inspiración haitiana.

Hatian love song

Oceans wept
Mountains slept
Sidewalks crumbled to ash
Your name remains
In children's lullabies
And your eyes forever in the sky
Pull me close
Dear I'm tremblin'
Hold me tight
I'm afraid of the night
Blackness fills the room
Your love burns bright
Oh summer winds
Remind me of your kiss
Soft and warm
I never want to leave this
I never wanted to say goodbye
I'd throw myself to the sea
If god promised you're inside
We'd float to island paradise
And I'd become your bride
The countryside looks bare
Without you lying in her grass
The stream is dry
And the crickets silent
There's no music in the night
I'd become smoke
And hide in your cigarette pack
To be a star
Tossing light
To sparkle in your eyes
I'd become an angel
And kiss this earth goodbye
Use to be
Just a word to me
But heaven sure was right
When they said Jesus left somethin' behind
Every inch of this body
I'd plate in gold for you
Even though I ain't go no money
I'd do it just to keep you
Your eyes appear
In every one of my dreams
They glitter and they gleam
Like the first time we meet
The chickens crowed
And I knowed your home
My spirit ran to greet you
Before my feet left the porch

Va con dedicatoria... para Mauricio.

Y ya que seguimos con la onda haitiana, hago una fuerte recomendación: la rola Haiti, de Arcade Fire. Contenida en el primer LP de la banda (Funeral), la rola nos remonta a los orígenes de la vocalista, Régine.

Sin más ni más, disfruten las posadas.
