Era uma vez Billy Bragg


Há séculos e séculos atrás, quando eu sonhava acordado [e sozinho] com música e fingia estudar arquitetura, Billy Bragg era um dos meus modelos. Mas não fui eu mas sim um companheiro de viagem que quis que a gente tocasse "Levi Stubb's Tears" de Billy Bragg. E assim foi.
Aqui a letra:
Levi Stubb's Tears
With the money from her accident
She bought herself a mobile home
So at least she could get some enjoyment
Out of being alone
No one could say that she was left up on the shelf
Its you and me against the world kid she mumbled to herself

Chorus:
When the world falls apart some things stay in place
Levi stubbs tears run down his face

She ran away from home with her mothers best coat
She was married before she was even entitled to vote
And her husband was one of those blokes
The sort that only laughs at his own jokes
The sort that war takes away
And when there wasnt a war he left her anyway

Norman whitfield and barratt strong
Are here to make everything right thats wrong
Holland and holland and lamont dozier too
Are here to make it all okay with you

One dark night he came home from the sea
And put a hole in her body where no hole should be
It hurt her more to see him walking out the door
And though they stitched her back together they left her heart in pieces on the
Floor

When the world falls apart some things stay in place
She takes off the four tops tape and puts it back in its case
When the world falls apart some things stay in place
Levi stubbs tears...

E aqui o original no IUTúBi:

E era o que quê você tocava? E por que é que todo mundo que viaja acha que vai ser arquiteto um dia? rs...

Tocava guitarra e cantava num trio chamado "Os Feios e Eu".
Eu estudei arquitetura 5 anos mas nunca me formei e nem sei bem porque escolhi arquitetura.
