DONALD FAGEN : I’M NOT THE SAME WITHOUT YOU [SUNKEN CONDOS, 2012]

Το Sunken Condos είναι το τέταρτο σόλο άλμπουμ του Donald Fagen, ημίσεως των Steely Dan. Διαλέγουμε απ’ αυτό ένα τραγούδι απώλειας… ή κάπως έτσι…
Sunken Condos is the fourth solo album from one-half of Steely Dan, Donald Fagen. From this we pick a song of loss… οr something.

Since you’ve been gone
An awesome change has come about
My life is different now
I’m not the same without you
I’m evolving
At a really astounding rate of speed
Into something way cooler
Than what I was before
I feel much stronger
Than I have in years
My mind is sharp
And my spirit’s sound
Now people tell me
The shape of my face is changing
I’ve grown an inch taller since July
What in the world is going on, please tell me
Without you
I now have eyes to see
Some other destiny
A futurescape of bright arcades
In which I bring off
Heroic escapades
I can hold my breath
For a really long time now
I can hold my own
I’m not the same without you
Without you
I now have eyes to see
Some other destiny
A futurescape of bright arcades
In which I bring off
Heroic escapades
Since you’ve been gone
It’s like somebody switched the stars back on
I can see into everybody’s heart
And everybody’s dreams
I don’t need sleep anymore
But if I closed my eyes
I’d sleep the sleep of the gods
I’m not the same without you

    A cool and unique talent. I’m a huge fan of Steely Dan.
    From this song, it’s clear what his contribution was to the band!
