FOTHERINGAY : THE SEA [1970]

Ένα τραγούδι από το πρώτο και τελευταίο άλμπουμ των [αυθεντικών] Fotheringay. Ήταν το συγκρότημα που η μοναδική Sandy Denny έφτιαξε αποχωρώντας από τους Fairport Convention.
Μια πρόταση του

A song from the first and last [original]
Fotheringay’s album. This was the band the one and only Sandy Denny formed after her departure from Fairport Convention.
A suggestion by
stcigar.

Do I ever wonder? You don’t know.
You’ll never follow, and I’ll never show.
D’you see the water and watch it flow
And float an empty shell,
And you think that I’m hiding from the island.
You’ve a fault in your senses. Can you feel it now?
Time? What is that? I’ve no time to care.
I’ve lived for a long while nearly everywhere.
You will be taken, everyone, you ladies and you gentlemen.
Fall and listen with your ears upon the paving stone.
Is that what you hear? The coming of the sea?
Sea flows under your doors in London town.
And all your defences are all broken down.
You laugh at me on funny days, but mine’s the slight of hand.
Don’t you know I am a joker, a deceiver?
And I’m waiting for the land.
