Se fossi musica …

… Oggi sarei …

I stood up straight and sang
For the record company man
My enthusiasm filled the room
I was young and I was keen
With the devil in my stream
As I hollered out an Old Blues tune.

“We can’t sign you, son
‘Cause you don’t fit in the mould.
It’s your hair and your nose and your clothes.”
I said, “Thank you gentlemen
For this opportunity.
Now move on down the road.”

I remember I used to say,

[Chorus:]
They can’t stop me now
The world is waiting
It’s my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can’t stop me now
The tide is turning
I’m gonna make you proud
So proud, so proud

[Verse:]
Well it was rough and it was tough
But I couldn’t get enough
Of this rhythm and blues I craved
I was singing in the pubs
Was singing in the clubs
Then along came Maggie May

All the things he said to me
And all the things I heard
I had a point to prove, oh, yeah.
I will climb this mountain
With this god-given gift
If it’s the last thing that I do

And I remember thinking,

[Chorus 2x:]
They can’t stop me now
The world is waiting
It’s my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can’t stop me now
The tide is turning
I’m gonna make you proud
(So proud, so proud)

[Bridge:]
Born to ramble
Born to sing
In a new world of rock’n’roll
One man in particular
Filled my heart with pride
And he fired up my soul

Thanks for the faith
Thanks for the patience
Thanks for the helping hand
Thanks for the love
Thanks for the guidance
Thanks for the tartan pride

[Chorus 2x:]
They can’t stop me now
The world is waiting
It’s my turn to stand out in the crowd
They can’t stop me now
The tide is turning
I’m gonna make you proud 

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
‘cause I’ve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don’t know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So if you’re mad, get mad
Don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I’m a lot like you
When you’re standing at the crossroads
And don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along
‘cause even if you’re wrong

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you

And when…
When the night falls on you, baby
You’re feeling all alone
You won’t be on your own

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you

I’ll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

Se i vvideo non dovessero durare, almeno resteranno le parole …
Baci ❤
