# CDLXI - Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe...






[Na margem do Sena | abril´04]


Despediam-se sempre da mesma maneira quando se encontravam para fazer amor. Batia com a mão no peito, no lugar do coração e, deixando o olhar no olhar dele, saía.

"A importância de um gesto está sempre na repetição, um gesto isolado pode muito bem nunca ter sentido."
[Dulce Maria Cardoso, in Retrato de um jovem poeta]

# CDLX - Há jardins assim...





Algum misticismo.
Algum desalento.
Alguma esperança.
Alguma fé.

Que mais queres, hoje?

The Garden Of Jane Delawney
by Françoise Hardy 

The poet's voice lingers on
His words hang in the air
The ground you walk upon
Might as well not be there
Might as well not be there

I'll take you through my dreams
Out into the darkest morning
Past the blood filled streams
Into the garden of Jane Delawney
Into the garden now
Though the rose is fair
Don't pluck it as you pass
For a fire will consume your hair
And your eyes will turn to glass
Your eyes will turn to glass

In the willow's shade
Don't lie to hear it weep
For its tears of gold and jade
Will drown you as you sleep
Will drown you now
Jane Delawney had her dreams
That she never did discover
For the flow that feeds the stream
Is the life blood of her lover
Is the life blood of her lover

And the purifying beam
Of the sun will shine here never
While the spirit of her dream
In the garden lives forever
Lives forever now

# CDLIX - She's back!



Uma das minhas mais permanentes paixões do Jazz vocal feminino - Holly Cole - tem cd novo. Chama-se Night e traz esta versão que me relembra por que gosto tanto dela.





Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues - by Holly Cole

Everybody's gone away
Said they're movin to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leavin' town

Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Found the sunshine in the rain
They said this town's will waste your time
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues

You know my heart keeps tellin' me
You're not a kid at thirty-three
Play around you'll lose your wife
You play it too long you'll lose your life

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues
