You Had Time – Ani Difranco

(Foto tratta dal forum di anidifranco.it)

E’ passata ormai più di una settimana dallo straordinario concerto Milanese di Ani Difranco, è ancora ho in mente la sua incredibile performance! Le sue risate travolgenti, i suoi buffi racconti e non per ultimo il suo immutato talento!!
Come ha detto una mia amica all’uscita, è stato uno di quei pochi concerti in cui esci completamente rilassato…it’s amazing!!

Più di tutte mi ha colpito la dolcissima You Had Time, un brano malinconico…proprio come il mio stato d’animo attuale…eccola qui…

You Had Time

how can i go home
with nothing to say
i know you’re going to look at me that way
and say what did you do out there
and what did you decide
you said you needed time
and you had time

you are a china shop
and i am a bull
you are really good food
and i am full
i guess everything is timing
i guess everything’s been said
so i am coming home with an empty head

you’ll say did they love you or what
i’ll say they love what i do
the only one who really loves me is you
and you’ll say girl did you kick some butt
and i’ll say i don’t really remember
but my fingers are sore
and my voice is too

you’ll say it’s really good to see you
you’ll say i missed you horribly
you’ll say let me carry that
give that to me
and you will take the heavy stuff
and you will drive the car
and i’ll look out the window and make jokes
about the way things are

how can i go home
with nothing to say
i know you’re going to look at me that way
and say what did you do out there
and what did you decide
you said you needed time
and you had time
