A letter to Elise - The Cure (Subjetividad e Interpetación)

La canción del momento es A letter to Elise de The Cure (Si uno tradujera sería redundante, pero ¿qué cosa puedo hacer? ).

Le pedí a Christie que me ayudara con la interpretación y bueno ha sido sorprendente como hasta con las canciones el subjetivismo aparece y enriquece al arte...

(Nota: Sus comentarios están en azul, la letra en negro)

The Cure - A Letter To Elise Lyrics

oh elise it doesn't matter what you say
i just can't stay here every yesterday

(I can't keep living in the past)

like keep on acting out the same

(pretending everything is how it used to be)

the way we act out
every way to smile
forget

(acting as if we are happy)

and make-believe we never needed
any more than this
any more than this

(and pretending that what we have is enough)

oh elise it doesn't matter what you do
i know i'll never really get inside of you
to make your eyes catch fire
the way they should

(No matter how much you want it, I will never touch your soul and I
will never make your eyes light up like they should)

the way the blue could pull me in
if they only would
if they only would
at least i'd lose this sense of sensing something else
that hides away
from me and you

(Maybe if I could light up your eyes I wouldn't have this feeling that
you are hiding something from me and from yourself)

there're worlds to part
with aching looks and breaking hearts
and all the prayers your hands can make

(I dunno about this bit - maybe it is in reference to them breaking up
and how hard it is)

oh i just take as much as you can throw

(I will take as much love as you give me)

and then throw it all away
oh i throw it all away

like throwing faces at the sky
like throwing arms round
yesterday
i stood and stared
wide-eyed in front of you
and the face i saw looked back
the way i wanted to

(Yesterday I looked at you and you looked back with an expression that
I wished I could share/reflect {a happy expression})

but i just can't hold my tears away

(But my face can't lie)

the way you do

elise believe i never wanted this
i thought this time i'd keep all of my promises
i thought you were the girl always dreamed about

(at first I thought you were the girl I always dreamed of (the perfect
girl) and I wanted this to be true and made promises I thought I could
keep)

but i let the dream go
and the promises broke
and the make-believe ran out...

(but I realised you weren't perfect and broke all the promises I made
to you because I couldn't pretend that you were anymore)

oh elise
it doesn't matter what you say
i just can't stay here every yesterday
like keep on acting out the same
the way we act out
every way to smile
forget
and make-believe we never needed
any more than this
any more than this

and every time i try to pick it up
like falling sand
as fast as i pick it up
it runs away through my clutching hands

(and everytime I try to clutch at the last strands of our relationship
I can't hold onto it)

but there's nothing else i can really do
there's nothing else
i can really do
at all...


En resumen (según sus palabras)


It is so sad...

Both of them want so much to be together and make each other happy but
he just can't keep pretending that she is 'the one' and she knows it.


Espero que les haya gustado, en otra entrada publicaré mi interpretación y por supuesto ¡están invitados a enviarme la suya!

Muchas gracias Christie!! Un beso!
