Cari miei, il 2011 è appena arrivato e almeno a star a sentire i Maya sarà un anno tranquillo (…) e con i nuovi dodici mesi si tirano un po’ le somme e si pensa a cosa ci aspetta nel prossimo futuro.
Ok, chi mi conosce sa che non è proprio nel mio carattere fare propositi per l’avvenire, ma il buon Eddie Vedder ci ha regalato, già nel 1998, questa splendida ballad la cui frase più significativa per me è “I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me”.
Alla fine siamo noi che realizziamo i nostri desideri. E’ difficile. Ci vuole un sacco di lavoro e a volte si fallisce. Ma vale sempre la pena tentare.
Buon Anno a tutti!!!
I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky
I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood
I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb ‘to trust’ and never let you down
I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
