Madeleine Peyroux - Between the Bars


"Between de Bars" llegó como una recomendación de "C.C.", una vieja amiga que prefiere el anónimato.

La canción en cierto sentido se emparenta con esa que decía "Amigos traigan cerveza...", o con "sírvame la copa rota..." pero con más posibilidades estéticas y semánticas: la implícita alusión a la ternura, a la fragilidad y a la vez, a la frialdad y dureza del conjunto, como una oposición entre un individuo solitario (Drink up, baby/Stay up all nighty...Drink up, baby/ Look at the stars./And I'll kiss you again...) y la suma de todos ellos (People you've been before /That you don't want around anymore)




Drink up, baby
Stay up all night
Things you could do
You won't but you might

The potential you'll be
You'll never see
Promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about
Pressure of days
Do what I say
And I'll make you okay
And drive them away
Images stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up, baby
Look at the stars.
And I'll kiss you again
Between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time
And I'll make you mine
And keep you apart
Deep in my heart
Separate from the rest
Where I like you the best
Keep the things you forgot

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
