Hearts and Bones

Two people were married/ The act was outrageous/ The bride was contagious

Arxivat a: Música, Paul Simon, El piano

“Si pots aconseguir que Paul Simon escrigui una cançó sobre tu, fes-ho: és boníssim”. És un consell de l’actriu Carrie Fisher (21 d’octubre del 1956-27 de desembre del 2016), que va ser parella de Paul Simon del 1977 al 1984. Hearts and Bones, del 1983, és una de les cançons que el músic li va dedicar. Tracta sobre les dificultats de conciliar l’amor ideal i l’amor d’estar per casa. El més curiós és que va ser escrita abans que la parella es casés el 1983 i es divorciés el 1984, de manera que sembla que anticipi el que va acabar passant. Un cop divorciats, Simon i Fisher van tornar a ser parella durant un temps.


One and one-half wandering Jews
Free to wander wherever they choose
Are traveling together
In the Sangre de Christo
The Blood of Christ Mountains
Of New Mexico
On the last leg of a journey
They started a long time ago
The arc of a love affair
Rainbows in the high desert air
Mountain passes
Slipping into stone
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones

Thinking back to the season before
Looking back through the cracks in the door
Two people were married
The act was outrageous
The bride was contagious
She burned like a bride
These events may have had some effect
On the man with the girl by his side
The arc of a love affair
His hands rolling down her hair
Love like lightning shaking till it moans
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones

Whoa whoa whoa
She said why?
Why don’t we drive through the night
We’ll wake up down in
Mexico
Oh I
I don’t know nothin’ about nothin’
About Mexico
And tell me why
Why won’t you love me
For who I am
Where I am

He said ‘cause that’s not the way the world is baby
This is how I love you baby
This is how I love you baby

One and one-half wandering Jews
Returned to their natural coasts
To resume old acquaintances
Step out occasionally
And speculate who had been damaged the most
Easy time will determine if these consolations
Will be their reward
The arc of a love affair

Waiting to be restored
You take two bodies and you twirl them into one
Their hearts and their bones
And they won’t come undone
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
