Black man in a white world

Hace unos días descubrí a Michael Kiwanuka y no se las vueltas que le he dado a su música en Spotify. Tiene canciones poderosas y bonitas que no te las quitas de la cabeza. Una mezcla de soul y folk a lo Van Morrison. Brutal. Una voz de esas que se te agarran dentro.

(…) I feel like I’ve been here before
I feel that knocking on my door
I feel like I’ve been here before
I feel that knocking on my door
And I’ve lost everything I had
And I’m not angry and I’m not mad

I’m a black man in a white world (…)

El enlace de Van Morrison es a la canción Days Like this, una de mis canciones preferidas con la que he querido, soñado y volado muchas veces. Cosas que hacen las canciones…

When it’s not always raining there’ll be days like this
When there’s no one complaining there’ll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”

When you don’t need to worry there’ll be days like this
When no one’s in a hurry there’ll be days like this
When you don’t get betrayed by that old Judas kiss
Oh, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”

When you don’t need an answer there’ll be days like this
When you don’t meet a chancer there’ll be days like this
When all the parts of the puzzle start to look like they fit
Then I must remember there’ll be days like this

There’ll be days like this

When everyone is up front and they’re not playing tricks
When you don’t have no freeloaders out to get their kicks
When it’s nobody’s business the way that you wanna live
I just have to remember there’ll be days like this

When no one steps on my dreams there’ll be days like this
When people understand what I mean there’ll be days like this
When you ring out the changes of how everything is
Well, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”

Oh, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”
Oh, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”
Oh, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”
Oh, my mama told me, “There’ll be days like this”
