My blog so chou

Lis, vis, aime

Alone again (naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan

In a little while from now
If I'm not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top
Will throw myself off
In an effort to
Make it clear to whoever
Wants to know what it's like When you're shattered

Left standing in the lurch at a church
Were people saying, My God, that's tough
She stood him up
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally
To think that only yesterday

I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to who wouldn't do
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about, God in His mercy

Oh, if he really does exist
Why did he desert me
In my hour of need
I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally
It seems to me that
There are more hearts broken in the world
That can't be mended

Left unattended
What do we do
What do we do
Alone again, naturally
Looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears

And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me

No words were ever
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally

Une petite baisse de moral qui, j'espère, ne durera pas trop! Gros bisous Minouche

Rien de grave, j'espère, sur le fait que les paroles te parlent tout particulièrement...
gros bisous

Je ne sais pas du tout ce qu'il est advenu du chanteur malheureusement! En plus de la mélodie que j'aime beaucoup, les paroles de la chanson me parlent particulièrement aujourd'hui...
Très bon mardi Paulette! Bisous

Merci de m'avoir permis de l'entendre à nouveau. Cela fait longtemps que je n'en avais pas entendu parler. Compose-t-il toujours ? Je l'aimais bien en tant qu'interprète aussi ! Merci d'avoir mis les paroles , en l'écoutant je me laisse prendre pas la mélodie et finis par ne pas leur prêter attention ! Bon mardi Rachel Bisous
