201.- Josh Ritter – A Certain Light

19 de julio de 2016

Este americano, escritor y cantautor de ese estilo musical llamado Americana, comenzó autoproduciendo su propio álbum y el boca a boca quiso que se hiciera un hueco en Irlanda. Ha publicado ya ocho LPs y escucharlos es un pequeño placer que todo el mundo debería permitirse. A mí esta sencilla canción me evoca una paz y un sentimiento de calidez muy agradables.

En su último disco, Sermon on the Rocks (2015), se encuentra una de sus canciones más pegadizas y animadas, Getting Ready To Get Down. Otra canción que me  encanta es Hopeful, incluida en el mismo LP que A Certain Light, el fantástico The Beast In Its Tracks (2013).

“A Certain Light”

My new lover, sweet and kind
The kind of lover that one rarely finds
And I’m happy for the first time, in a long time

Came along and opened up the door
And though I know I’ve been in love before
Oh I feel it, so much more, than the last time

And she only looks like you
In a certain kind of light
When she holds her head just right

Its been winter, for a while
The north winds wail cut like a baby child
It was hard to think or smile
That brings springtime

But it did and now it is
The green green grass
Is come up green and its
Feeling just the way it did
The very first time

And she only looks like you
In a certain kind of light
When she holds her head just right

And anymore, it’d stretch the rhyme
So let me leave this where I started, I’m
Just happy for the first time
In a long time

In a long time
