The Youngbloods – Get togheter

Tiempo para que todas las personas se vean como humanos, hermanos; Tiempo de dejar atrás miedos y odios, y hacer algo grande. Primer paso: creerlo…

Love is but the song we sing,
And fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Know the dove is on the wing
And you need not know why

C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now

Some will come and some will go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moments sunlight
Fading in the grass

C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now

If you hear the song I sing,
You must understand
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at your command

C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
Right now
Right now!

Wooden Ships

Sin muchas ganitas de escribir, estoy literalmente roto… xD

Os traigo un poema importado desde el verano del amor del puño y letra Paul Kantner, en dueto con la adorable Grace Slick y Marty Balin

If you smile at me you know I will understand
Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
In the same language
I can see by your coat my friend that you’re from the other side
There’s just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please who won
You must try some of my purple berries
I been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven’t got sick once
Probably keep us both alive
Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Easy you know the way it’s supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free and easy
Sail away where the mornin sun goes high
Sail away where the wind blows sweet and young birds fly
Take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this barren land
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cry and
Stare as all your human feelings die
We are leaving
You don’t need us
Go and take a sister by her hand
Lead her far from this foreign land
Somewhere where we might laugh again
We are leaving
You don’t need us
Sailing ships on the water very free and easy
Easy you know the way it’s supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline leave us be
Very free
And gone

Eskimo Blue Day

Snow cuts loose from the frozen
Until it joins with the African sea
In moving it changes its cold and its name
The reason I come and go is the same
Animal game for me
You call it rain
But the human name
Doesn’t mean shit to a tree

If you don’t mind heat in your river and
Fork tongue talking from me
Swim like an eel fantastic snake
Take my love when it’s free
Electric feel with me
You call it loud
But the human crowd
Doesn’t mean shit to a tree

Change the strings and notes slide
Change the bridge and string shift down
Shift the notes and bridge sings

Fire eating people
Rising toys of the sun
Energy dies without body warm
Icicles ruin your gun

Water my roots the natural thing
Natural spring to the sea
Sulphur springs make my body float
Like a ship made of logs from a tree
Redwoods talk to me
Say it plainly
The human name
Doesn’t mean shit to a tree
Snow called water going violent
Dam the end of the stream
Too much cold in one place breaks
That’s why you might know what I mean
Consider how small you are
Compared to your scream
The human dream
Doesn’t mean shit to a tree

-Grace Slick, Paul Kantner

Ball and Chain

-Janis Joplin.

S-sitting down by my window,
Oh, looking at the rain.
S-sitting down by my window now now,
All around I felt it,
All I could see was the rain.
Something grabbed a hold of me, honey,
Felt to me honey like, Lord, a ball and chain.
Yeah! Hey! You know what I mean,
But it’s way too heavy for you,
You can’t hold it tomorrow.

Say, whoa, whoa, honey, it can’t be
Just because I got to want your love
Please please please please, whoa please, please.
Whoa, honey it can’t be
Just because I got to need you daddy.
Please don’t you let me down, no, please, Lord!
Here you gone today, but I wanted to love you,
I wanted to hold you, yeah, till the day I die,
Till the day, till the day,
Yeah! Hey! Hey! All right!

Say, whoa, whoa, honey this can’t be
Not anything I ever wanted from you daddy
Tell me now, now, now, now, oh, tell me now, yeah.
I say, whoa, whoa, honey this can’t be
No, no, no, no, no, no, no … yeah yeah, hey!
And I want someone that could tell me, tell me why
Just because I got to want your love
Honey, just because I got to need, need, need your love

I said I don’t understand, honey, but I wanna chance to try
Try, try, try, try try try try
Honey when everybody in the world wants the same damn thing
When everybody in the world will need the same lonely thing
When I wanna work for your love, daddy.
When I wanna try for your love, daddy.

I don’t understand how come you’re gone, man. I don’t
understand why half the world is still crying, man, when
the other half of the world is still crying too, man, I
can’t get it together. I mean, if you got a cat for one
day, man — I mean, if you, say, say, if you want a cat
for 365 days, right — You ain’t got him for 365 days,
you got him for one day, man. Well I tell you that one
day, man, better be your life, man. Because, you know, you
can say, oh man, you can cry about the other 364, man, but
you’re gonna lose that one day, man, and that’s all you’ve
got. You gotta call that love, man. That’s what it is,
man. If you got it today you don’t want it tomorrow, man,
‘cause you don’t need it, ‘cause as a matter of fact, as
we discovered in the train, tomorrow never happens, man.
It’s all the same fucking day, man.

So you gotta, when you wanna hold a sigh,
You gotta hold him like it’s the last minute in your life, baby.
You gotta hold, whoa, whoa, hold him
‘Cause someday some weight’s gonna come on your shoulders, babe,
It’s gonna feel too heavy, it’s gonna weigh on you,
It’s gonna feel just like a ball, ball, ball, oh daddy,
And a chain.

(letra Big Mama Thornton)

5-(Recopilados) Al momento de su adios dijera

El arte, en sus anteojos,
sobre la faz de su cabellera
al momento de su adios dijera.

Yo… ni encontre palabras,
ni aire entre mi pecho
ni el palpitar de mi despecho…

Solos, yo y el vacio, perdido
cualquier sentido, inundado
por la unica expresion que me resta

¿Cómo tan pronto, amigo mio?
¿En que momento abandonaste
el lugubre traqueteo del vagon,
del mismo tren que compartimos?

Solos, yo y nuestro destino,
cualquier camino… ya nunca,
nunca sera contigo.

Ya no se, si tu me abandonaste
o yo deje que te fueras,
pero desde entonces, hasta ahora
en la noche no quedan estrellas.

¡Ah! azabache velo… Negro,
negro e imponente manto
que cubre tus andares,
que cobija en tu nuevo sendero

¡Ah! mi negro, negro momento
solos, angustias y lamentos,
llantos donde no existe el tiempo
gritos y rabia, vana esperanza.

Solo junto a ti, mortecino,
encuentro de nuevo un camino;
vida, muerte, y después,
después solo en el olvido.
