Now That I Know

Saltando hace meses por el Spotify me encontré un nombre que me era familiar. Devendra Banhart, tenia algo que me resultaba familiar. Al llegar desde el recomendadisimo grupo Beirut no me extraño la música que me encontré: guitarra y voz contra el mundo como me gusta decir. Busqué en mi larga lista de "Cosas Para Bajar" y ahí estaba, "ya decía yo, que de algo me sonaba el nombre". Y ahora lo comparto con ustedes, una suave melodia y la voz de este joven solos ante el peligro!

¡Espero que les guste!

Lyrics - Devendra Banhart

Now that I know
The way it goes
You gotta pay back every penny that you owe

Twelve years old
In your mama's clothes
Shut the blinds and lock up every door

And if you hear
Someone's coming near
Just close your eyes and make them disappear now

Years away
Finds me here today
On my own and knowless of my way now

So I send my friends
Gifts from where I've been
Something for the hand that never there to lend

Better keep those eyes
Climbing paradise
And don't pretend you won't reach it in the end now

Dearest dear
I know you've been near
Why'd you run, tell me why'd you disappear now

That you're not
Here with me
Seems to be the only time I can see you clearly

I may not know
How to treat or give you what you need
But I am a gentleman who says what he means now

And now I sing
Upon my knees
And praise the kindness of a gentle breeze

I see it swell
Like a story in me to tell
Told years away and past my day of dying

So you raise them up
To heaven always hell
There are nowhere to share give a hand to help some

Oh you give them away
But they'll come back to you someday
What I know I know nobody's ever there to help him

And I know it ain't fair
And if God forbid you care
It's enough to get you in a whole lot of trouble

I realize it ain't wise to idealize
Or put your life in the hands of any struggle

And every nights or ever claim to be
Never buy that freedom just ain't free now

Ella said
Sifting in the sand
Like a hymn within to help us understand

Heaven awaits
We're making our last stand
Glory bound and sparrow in our hand
