Reverend and The Makers - Open Your Window (2007)

¿Cómo ha podido pasar tanto tiempo desde el primer post y todavía no hemos hablado de los grandísimos Reverend & The Makers? Se trata de una banda que se podría encasillar dentro del estilo indie rock y cuyas raíces se encuentran en Sheffield (Inglaterra). Son muy poco conocidos en España, pero algunos de sus temas siguen sonando sin cesar en pub's irlandeses como Flaherty's (Elche). The Silence is Talking u Open Your Window continúan ardiendo en nuestros mp3, y las cantamos como si fuese la primera vez que cruzan nuestro canal auditivo...

La canción que hoy me atañe, Open Your Window, la escuché por primera vez en 2007, pero debió quedar olvidada en alguno de los hemisferios de mi cerebro para ser rescatada un año más tarde, cuando la escuché por casualidad. Entonces ya no la perdí de vista y continué escuchando algunas más... Hoy es domingo y en una hora se juega la final del Mundial entre España y Holanda... No sé si ganaremos pero, por ahora, ¡abramos la ventana!

OPEN YOUR WINDOW (THE STATE OF THINGS - 2007):

she goes away today
and he gives her a photo to help her remember
History of Art BA
it's alright cos she's back in late november

but he knows not of who she's been mixing
by christmas she's lying no calling she tricks him

So he goes up to stay
and he don't like her friends, and he hadn't heard of Nietzche
She's seems so far away
the distance is further each time he meets her

"who's the bloke on the wall next to ringo and paul?
is he some f**k expert on guerrila war?"

Open Your Window
Won't you let her out
wave goodbye to the butterfly
she's the one you can't live without

Open Your Window
won't you set her free
where you are tell me where she's at
and all the places she wants to be

He thinks they've grown apart
she uses big words like surreal and genre
and i know it breaks his heart
There's thousands of fellas just like it before ya

"who's the bloke on the wall next to ringo and paul?"
"It's Che she say's have ya seen him before"

Open Your Window
Won't you let her out
wave goodbye to the butterfly
she's the one you can't live without

Open Your Window
won't you set her free
where you are tell me where she's at
and the place she wants to be

we'll be together in the springtime


Saludos... ¡Todos con la Roja!
