The lovers are losing – Keane

The lovers are losing es el segundo sencillo que se extrae de Perfect Simmetry, el último trabajo de keane.

Esta es una de las canciones que más me gustan del disco, después del giro dado por la banda en cuanto a sonido se refiere. Esta canción creo que recupera un poco el espíritu de la banda tal y como la conocíamos, con esa elegancia que los caracteriza (o caracterizaba).

Os dejo con el vídeo que por cierto, es un poco tonto, la verdad.

 

letra The lovers are losing

I dreamed I was drowning
In the river Thames
I dreamed I had nothing at all
Nothing but my own skin

Slipped away from your open hands
Into river
Saw your face looking back at me
I saw my past, and I saw my future

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don’t like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You’re full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at this
Looks like
The lovers are losing
I dreamed I was watching
The young lovers dance
I reached out to touch your hair
But I was watching from a distance

We cling to love like a skidding car
Clings to a corner
I tried to hold onto what we are
The more I squeeze, the quicker we all are(??)

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don’t like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You’re full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at this
Looks like
The lovers are losing
I dreamed I had nothing at all (Nothing but my own skin)
I dreamed I had nothing at all (Nothing at all)
You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don’t like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You’re full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But in the final reckoning
Looks like
The lovers are losing

Un pensamiento sobre “The lovers are losing – Keane”

  1. Creo que las canciones del último CD de Keane se acercan más al pop de los 80′s, con utilización de sonidos típicos del tecno, incluso me hacen recordar temas de David Bowie, sin dejar de lado el piano y su sonido melódico entre U2 y Coldplay. La voz de Tom Chaplin continua siendo el mejor instrumento de la banda, aprovechando al máximo sus grandes recursos vocales. Mi canción preferida es “Pretend that you’re alone”, ya se que es la clásica canción pop, con base de piano se van añadiendo diferentes instrumentos instrumentos, y supongo que no aporta mucha novedad… pero es mi preferida.
