maybe someday

Poco a poco el disco entero va apareciendo en mis cuadernos -aquí y aquí-. Un disco, por cierto, lleno de desesperanza y dolor cuando uno se pone a bucear en las letras y a tratar de comprender el sentido completo de la obra que presentaron allá por el '76. Esta que hoy abordo era la última de la cara A y la primera en una versión instrumental de la cara B. Esta última, reprise, me encanta.
El tema, una descripción superlativa de una ruptura y las sensaciones que produce, tiene una letra de las mejores que un servidor ha escuchado acerca de la cosa, con un in crescendo final apoteósico y con frases -versos- magistrales: podría haber hecho tantas cosas...

Well baby, there you stand 
With your little head, down in your hand 
Oh, my God, you can't believe

it's happening again 
Your baby's gone, and you're all alone 
and it looks like the end. 

And you're back out on the street. 
And you're tryin' to remember. 
How will you start it over? 
You don't know what became. 
You don't care much for a stranger's touch, 
But you can't hold your man. 

You never thought you'd be alone

this far down the line 
And I know what's been on your mind 
You're afraid it's all been wasted time 

The autumn leaves have got you thinking 
about the first time that you fell 
You didn't love the boy too much, no, no 
you just loved the boy to well, Farewell 
So you live from day to day,

and you dream about tomorrow, oh. 
And the hours go by like minutes 
and the shadows come to stay 
So you take a little something

to make them go away 
And I could have done so many things, baby 
If I could only stop my mind

from wondrin' what I left behind
and from worrying 'bout this wasted time 

Ooh, another love has come and gone 
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on 
I remember what you told me

before you went out on your own: 
'Sometimes to keep it together,

we got to leave it alone.' 
So you can get on with your search, 
and I can get on with mine 
And maybe someday we will find,

that it wasn't really wasted time 
Oh hoo, ooh, ohh, 
Ooh,ooh, mm
