Sea song

Da "Rock Bottom" (1974), il capolavoro di Robert Wyatt, ecco la toccante "Sea Song" in un'animazione del disegnatore francese Olive Booger.

Incollo anche il testo perché ne vale davvero la pena, è a suo modo una delle canzoni più romantiche mai scritte!

You look different every time
You come
from the foam-crested brine
Your skin shining softly in the moonlight
Partly fish, partly porpoise, partly baby sperm-whale
Am I yours? Are you mine to play with?
Joking apart - when you're drunk you're terrific when you're drunk
I like you mostly late at night you're quite alright

But I can't understand the different you
In the morning
when it's time
To play at being human for a while please smile!

You'll be different in the spring, I know
You're a seasonal beast
Like the starfish that drift in with the tide, with the tide

So until your blood runs to meet the next full moon
Your madness fits in nicely with my own
Your lunacy fits neatly with my own, my very own

We're not alone
