Kingdom for a Heart

Há músicas que nos marcam, ficam entranhadas, corroem-nos e jamais nos deixam, não só pela sonoridade mas pela profundidade da letra... talvez também pela altura, pela companhia com quem era ouvida... talvez por inúmeras situações.

Esta é uma delas, recordei-a nas palavras de um amigo e partilho-a aqui convosco:


What the hell are you standing there for, expecting
me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's
no room for air, I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom
for one more day

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for just one more day

What the hell am I waiting here for, expecting you to
come and give away your life
Just for a moment of my time, have a hole where I
should have a heart, I'm made of wood, I'm falling
apart, I would give a kingdom if I only had you

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a kind of your world
I'd give a kingdom, if I had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Now I know I will never love you, I'm a man without
a heart, I'm not allowed to feel human feelings
I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it
away in a moment. If I only had one moment

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, if I had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica - Kingdom For A Heart - 1999
