Heavy soul

Tengo un alma pesada.
Recuerdo escuchar esta canción, este disco, muchas canciones de Paul Weller tumbado en aquel suelo maltrecho y abombado de mi habitación con aquella puerta que no cerraba del todo, junto al cuarto de baño del Cottage 2, en Evershot, con mis manos y mi cabeza apestando a grasa, aceite y Fairy, después de trabajar a destajo en la cocina del hotel Summer Lodge. Tenía el discman junto a mi y los pequeños altavoces Sony a ambos lados de mi cabeza. Los ojos cerrados. Sintiendo que estaba lejos de lo cotidiano. Cogiendo fuerzas. Recuperándome. Volando. Lejos, lejos de todo...
Ahora me gusta escuchar este tema pensando que estoy cerca de algo grande. Al menos, pudiendo contemplar este tema con sus dos partes juntas.





HEAVY SOUL (Music & Lyrics by Paul Weller)
We're words upon a window
Written there in steam
In the heat of the moment
At the birth of a dream

Vapors passing really
So I'm touched by the thoughts
In the fleeting minutes after
The time that we've come

Come and go, you know, where the wind blows
An' though I couldn't define
I can only tell you that I
Got a heavy soul

Tuesdays dressed in shearling
Anchored on belief
In the sunlight on the water
Or rain upon a leaf

And I'm touched by its' beauty
And I hope to touch you too
'Cause I still seek the same things
That I once sought to be true

And you know, that's where the wind blows
Tho' I wouldn't be lying, when I tell you that I
Got a heavy soul, it's a joy to know
I've just told you so, I've got a heavy soul

Words upon a window
Written there in steam
In the heat of the moment
Everything is what it seems

Vapors passing nearly
So I'm touched by the thought
That I can't be beaten
And I can't be bought

And you'll know
It's a joy to know
I don't think, I'd be lyin'
When I tell you that I
I've got a heavy soul

And it's a joy to know
I've just told you so
Yeah, I've got a heavy soul
And it's a joy to know

I've just told you so
I've got a heavy soul
Got a heavy soul
