Algunhas músicas (e letras) de Lois Pereiro

No recital que Lois Pereiro deu no pub Moka na Coruña por volta do 31 de xaneiro de 1996, poucos meses antes de morrer, e que se pode escoitar aquí, empregou as músicas que a seguir se presentan. As letras destas músicas, á beira das músicas mesmas, son tamén moi significativas do espírito, da estética e do estado de ánimo do poeta nesa etapa da súa vida.

 

All the things you said – you thought I was dead
Everything made me feel aware
Ah, you’re getting old, you’re doing things
You’re losing your hair
All the things that you used to believe in
Turned out to be true – you’re guilty of reason
You’re the kind of person that I could do without
And certain kinds of money would make
you see what it’s all about
There’s a first time for everything
There’s a first one’s on me, don’t you see
All of the things that your old lover said
Look at them, they jump out of windows
And now they’re just dead
It’s the truth, don’t you realize
Faded without any talent or fun
Running out in the streets, balling everyone
It’s the truth, It’s the truth
Pick up the pieces that make up your life
Maybe some day you’ll have a wife and them alimony
Oh, can’t you see

 

The bats are in the belfry
the dew is on the moor
where are the arms that held me
and pledged her love before
and pledged her love before

Chorus
It’s such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it’s memories that I’m stealing
but you’re innocent when you dream
when you dream
you’re innocent when you dream

running through the graveyard
we laughed my friends and I
we swore we’d be together
until the day we died
until the day we died

Repeat Chorus

I made a golden promise
that we would never part
I gave my love a locket
and then I broke her heart
and then I broke her heart

Repeat Chorus
