// En movella, hvori jeg vil samle mine yndlingsnumre og tilhørende sangtekster. Som så mange andre mennesker kan jeg ikke gå igennem en eneste dag uden musik, og det er nok den passion, som flest mennesker i hele verden har tilfælles. Om du så bryder dig om det samme som mig er en anden sag, men hvis du er til melankolsk indie/pop/slowcore-musik, så burde du blive. // Føl dig velkommen til at anbefale mig et nummer!

18. ♫ We Don't Eat - James Vincent McMorrow ♫

 

"We don't eat until your father's at the table
We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust..."

 

Denne sang betyder meget for mig. Den kan røre mig til tårer altid, og den har en hel historie for sig selv, der gjorde mig virkelig inspireret - derfor kan du under min profil også finde en movella, der er baseret på denne sang. Den er fuldstændig sin egen og ubeskrivelig smuk. Måske siger den dig ikke noget, men det er jo sådan, vi alle er forskellige.
Teksten handler om opbrud mod gamle traditioner - i dette tilfælde kristne. Man spiser og drikker ikke, før man har sagt sin bordbøn.

Sangen er fra James Vincent McMorrow's album "Early In The Morning," som er en af mine yndlingsalbums. Alle sangene er fantastiske, så den kan jeg varmt anbefale.

"Redemption" betyder forresten frelse/indløsning/tilgivelse. "Two thousand years" er også en af mange bibelske referencer i sangen.

 

 

 

If this is redemption, why do I bother at all?
There's nothing to mention, and nothing has changed
Still I'd rather be working for something than praying for the rain
So I wander on until someone else is saved


I moved to the coast, under a mountain
Swam in the ocean, slept on my own
At dawn I would watch the sun cut ribbons through the bay
I'd remember all the things my mother wrote

That we don't eat until your father's at the table
We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
Never once has any man I've met been able to love
So if I were you, I'd have a little trust

Two thousand years now, I've been in that water
Two thousand years, sunk like a stone
Desperately reaching for nets that the fishermen have thrown
Trying to find a little bit of hope

Me, I was holding all of my secrets soft and hidden
Pages were folded, and there was nothing at all
So if in the future I might need myself a savior
I'll remember what was written on that wall

That we don't eat until your father's at the table
We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
Never once has any man I've met been able to love
So if I were you, I'd have a little trust

But am I an honest man and true?
Have I been good to you at all?
Oh, I'm so tired of playing these games
We'd just be running down
The same old lines, the same old stories of
Breathless trains and worn down glories
Houses burning, worlds that turn on their own

So we don't eat until your father's at the table
We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust
Never once has any man I've met been able to love
So if I were you my friend, I'd learn to have just a little bit of trust
