Lied van de week: week 28 - 2015

Ophelia - Marika Hackman


De Britse zangeres Marika Hackman, afkomstig uit Hampshire, weet de gevoelige snaar te raken met eenvoudige popsongs. Na enkele EP's mag ze dat nu bewijzen met een eerste album, dat zeker het beluisteren waard is.

Je kan het album We slept at last hier kopen.

Lyrics:

She who walks alone in life
She of sound mind
I am only as old as I've been told

Now I'm playing for time

Darling take me to the lakeside
Wash my body well
I am holy now the water's hit me
Broken from your spell

Cause I was on my hands and knees
Bending at the heart of me

We don't know the weight of all
The words we say now
In a few more years, with open ears
Would you still say them aloud?

They who walk alone in life
They are of sound mind
We can only get hurt by things we've heard
And lovers are unkind

But did you hear the sun go down?
Silent as a child I found
Hiding in the midnight of my soul
I am ready now to let her go

She who walks alone in life
She by herself
We are only as old as we've been told
And I'm not ready for the shelf

Darling take me to the lakeside
Lay my body down
I am holy now while skin is touching
Let the sun go out

I am on my hands and knees
Bending at the heart of me
Hiding in the midnight of my soul
Please don't break the shell that I call home
