# CXCII - Resgatando memórias


(So long - Março'2007)


Eram os anos 80. Com as músicas especiais dessa época...as tais que me fazem, muitas vezes, parar e pensar..."conheço esta"...e começar a trauteá-la, pouco depois.
Dos Fisher-Z gosto de (re)ouvir, vezes sem conta, este "So long":

So Long

When I read your letter I couldn't believe that you'd gone.
I dialled your number but no one answered the phone.
I asked your friends to tell me if they knew where you were,
they said they thought that you were ill.

I hired a detective to try and find out where you are.
He managed to trace you, he said you were living in France.
A watchman saw you climb into someone else's car and drive off
laughing in the night.

Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way.
You could have told me and not waited for so long.

I've tried to forget you but I find myself walking the street.
I went to the doctor and he gave me something to sleep.
I've sentyou telegrams but you haven't answered one.
Your mother told me I best leave you well alone.

I hope you're satisfied now you've done this thing to me.
I hope you're pleased with what you've done.

Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way.
Oh you could have toldme and not waited for so long.

For so long I never realized just exactly who you were.
I never realized just exactly.
I've never realized the girl I had before.
I hope you're satisfied you won't hear from me again.
I hope you're pleased with what you've done.

Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way.
Oh you should have told me and not waited for so long.

Lembro-me muito dessa canção, que me fez comprar todos os álbuns deles. O Watts veio cá o ano passado ao aniversário da Febre, gostei das canções novas, que não tornei a ouvir, mas de tão pouco comerciais, nem devem estar à venda por cá.
