• Une chanson, une émotion # 23 : Time - Tom Waits

    Issue de l'immense album qu'est "Rain Dogs" sorti en 1985 , cette chanson me fait presque chialer à chaque fois...

    Well the smart money's on Harlow and the moon is in the street
    And the shadow boys are breaking all the laws
    And you're east of East Saint Louis and the wind is making speeches
    And the rain sounds like a round of applause
    And Napoleon is weeping in a carnival saloon
    His invisible fiancee's in the mirror
    And the band is going home, it's raining hammers, it's raining nails
    And it's true there's nothing left for him down here

    And it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    And they all pretend they're orphans and their memory's like a train
    You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
    And the things you can't remember tell the things you can't forget 
    That history puts a saint in every dream

    Well she said she'd stick around until the bandages came off
    But these mama's boys just don't know when to quit
    And Mathilda asks the sailors "Are those dreams or are those prayers?" 
    So close your eyes, son, and this won't hurt a bit

    Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
    The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
    And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
    And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet
    So put a candle in the window and a kiss upon his lips 
    As the dish outside the window fills with rain
    Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
    And pay the fiddler off 'til I come back again

    Oh it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time
    And it's time time time, and it's time time time
    And it's time time time that you love
    And it's time time time

    Contrairement à Arewenotmen, je pense que Tom Waits a continué d'aligner nombre de Chef d'uerve après c'elui-ci. D'ailleurs, je crois que je l'ai trop écouté celui-ci et que je n'ai pas souvent envie de m'y replonger (preuve qu'il serait (un poil) surestimé?)...

    Tom WAITS a fourni depuis et continue encore de fournir de très grand disque, contrairement à beaucoup d'autres artistes des 70's.

    Pour revenir à la chanson, oui, elle donne le frisson, mais là aussi, je trouve que ma relation avec elle s'est émoussée avec le temps, contrairement à Kentucky Avenue, par exemple (au piano il est vrai).
