George Harrison: The Light That Has Lighted The World

George Harrison: el beatle sincero.
e encendió la luz, sin previo aviso. Pensando que era cierto corrí a decírtelo. Momentos después hubo otro apagón. El siguiente estímulo fue aún más natural, transparente y fugaz.

Javier Mateos


I've heard how some people, have said
that I've changed
That I'm not what I was
How it really is a shame
The thoughts in their heads,
Manifest on their brow
Like bad scars from ill feelings
they themselves arouse
So hateful of anyone that is happy
or 'free'
They live all their lives,
without looking to see
The light that has lighted the world

It's funny how people, just won't
accept change
As if nature itself - they'd prefer
So hard to move on
When you're down in a hole
Where there's so little chance,
to experience soul

I'm greatful to anyone,
that is happy or 'free'
for giving me hope
while I'm looking to see

The light that has lighted the world

Gillian Welch: Revelator

Gillian Welch: la espera.

   El tiempo es un elemento fugaz que forma parte de nuestra existencia. Un arma de doble filo. El tiempo es una revelación.

Javier Mateos

Darling, remember when you come to me
I'm the pretender and I, what I'm supposed to be
But who could know if I'm a traitor
Time's the Revelator

They caught the Katy and left me a mule to ride
The Fortune Lady came along, she walked beside
But every word seemed to date her
Time's the Revelator, the Revelator

Up in the morning, up and on the ride
Drive into Corning and all the spindles whine
And every day is getting straighter
Time's the Revelator, the Revelator

Leaving the valley, fucking out of sight
I'll go back to Cali where I can sleep out every night
And watch the waves and move the fader
Time's the Revelator, the Revelator

Queen of the fakes and imitators
Time's the Revelator
