Glen Hansard a Firenze


Una canzone dall'ultimo album del bravissimo Glen Hansard che ieri sera a Firenze ha dedicato la canzone a tutti gli "economic migrants". Glen รจ poi tornato sul palco alla fine della serata per duettare con Eddie Vedder.
Set our sights on some distant land
Way back in the way back when
Packed our troubles in an old pack tent
Way back in the way back when
Spoke the language 'til we knew what it meant
Way back in the way back when
Prayed to God he had a hand to lend
Way back in the way back when

We were livin', breathin'
Broken, battered but believin'
Way back, way back
Way back in the way back when

We set out on a road that had no end
Way back in the way back when
Crossed the deserts in our caravan
Way back in the way back when
Built our homes on the shiftin' sand
Way back in the way back when
I love you, darlin', and I won't pretend
Way back in the way back when

We were livin', breathin'
Broken, battered but believin'
Way back, way back
Way back in the way back when

We walked some hard roads
We took some hard roads
Drifted up on the wrong shore
Been shown out the back door
Been told to keep movin'
Signs ain't improvin'
Showin' up on the wrong side
But nobody's gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna break my stride

So I dressed myself up in thicker skin
Way back in the way back when
Listened to no one but the gods within
Way back in the way back when
I sang my song 'til I knew what it meant
Way back in the way back when
Prayed to God he had a hand to lend
Way back in the way back when

We were livin', breathin'
Broken, battered but believin'
Way back, way back
Way back in the way back when

I'll keep moving on
I'll keep moving on
