James Blunt – 2005: audio, testo e traduzione

di Alberto Muraro

James Blunt è tornato: l’artista britannico pubblica oggi (24 marzo) a ben quattro anni di distanza dall’ultimo disco Moon Landing il suo nuovo progetto discografico The Afterlove, album scritto in collaborazione fra gli altri con Ed Sheeran e Ryan Tedder degli OneRepublic che racconta istantanee della sua vita in cui l’amore, gli
errori ed i rimpianti sono esaminati senza battere ciglio. Dandone un giudizio di massima, si può in effetti dire che il disco abbia la straordinaria capacità di creare un senso di intimità inedita, quasi come se l’ascoltatore diventasse lui stesso protagonista delle vicende raccontate dai suoi pezzi.

Per presentare l’album, vi ricordiamo James Blunt si esibirà dal vivo in Italia il prossimo 12 novembre al Palalottomatica di Roma, il 12 novembre al Mandela Forumd i Firenze e il 14 novembre al Forum di Assago, vicino Milano in occasione del suo attesissimo The AfterLove Tour.

Qui sotto trovate audio, testo e traduzione di 2005 di James Blunt: che ne pensate?

Testo

[Verse 1] I woke up this morning
And realized
All I do is apologize
For a song I wrote in 2005
Didn’t come with a warning
But fame is unkind
Put me on top of the world
Couple of girls and then
Left me behind

[Pre-Chorus] Sure, let’s take a photograph
You can show it to your friends and laugh
I’ll tell you what I’m doing now
But you don’t really wanna know

[Chorus 1] I wrote you a love song
Now it’s something that you hate on
And I’m sad the record’s broken
But I don’t think I can write a better love song
Without it I’d be no one
And now that you’ve forgotten me
Tell me how to write one better

[Verse 2] I’m not gonna lie
And say it didn’t work out
’cause I live in a big house
Made a few pounds
Nice car on the drive
And I went round the world once or twice
Saw the sunset and sunrise
But for big highs, there’s a big price
When all you do is criticise

[Pre-Chorus] Sure, let’s take a photograph
You can show it to your friends and laugh
I’ll tell you what I’m doing now
But you don’t really wanna know

[Chorus 1] I wrote you a love song
Now it’s something that you hate on
And I’m sad the record’s broken
But I don’t think I can write a better love song
Without it I’d be no one
And now that you’ve forgotten me
Tell me how to write one better

[Bridge] I don’t think I can write one better

[Chorus 2] I wrote you a love song
Now it’s something that you hate on
And I’m sad the record’s broken
But I don’t think I can write one better love song
Now it’s something that you hate on
And I’m sad the record’s broken
But I don’t think I can write a better love song
Without it I’d be no one
Now that you’ve forgotten me
Just tell me how to write one better

[Outro] I woke up this morning
And realized
All I do is apologize
For a song I wrote in 2005
