JETHRO TULL : SWEET DREAM [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Ήμουν παιδί ο ίδιος όταν πρωτοάκουσα αυτό το τραγούδι, από τα αγαπημένα μου των Jethro Tull. Η ιδέα της μυστηριώδους, σαρδόνιας οντότητας που σε επισκέπτεται εκεί όπου δεν υπάρχουν γονείς για να σε προστατέψουν [στο όνειρό σου…] παροτρύνοντάς σε σε απαγορευμένες πράξεις, μου είχε φανεί συναρπαστική. Και εξακολουθεί να μου φαίνεται.

I was a kid myself when I first heard this song, one of my favorites from
Jethro Tull. The idea of this mysterious, sardonic entity visiting you where no parents can protect you [in your dream…] urging you to forbidden acts, seemed fascinating to me. And it still does.


You’ll hear me calling in your sweet dream,
Can’t hear your daddy’s warning cry.
You’re going back to be all the things you want to be
While in sweet dreams you softly sigh.
You hear my voice is calling to be mine again,
Live the rest of your life in a day.
Get out and get what you can
While your mummy’s at home a-sleeping.
No time to understand
‘Cause they’ve lost what they thought they were keeping.
No one can hear us in your sweet dream,
Don’t hear you leave to start the car.
All wrapped up tightly in the coat you borrowed from me,
Your place of resting is not far.
You hear my voice is calling to be mine again,
Live the rest of your life in a day.
Get out and get what you can
While your mummy’s at home a-sleeping.
No time to understand
‘Cause they’ve lost what they thought they were keeping
.
