My Morning Jacket: Golden


My Morning Jacket: barbas antes de los 'barbas'.

   Y llegó el otoño con sus dorados. La lluvia era la de siempre, el cielo grisáceo. Pero la luz, la luz no te convencía.

Javier Mateos

Watchin' a stretch of road, miles of light explode
Driftin' off a thing I'd never done before

Watchin' a crowd roll in, out go the lights it begins
A feelin' in my bones I never felt before

People always told me that bars are dark and lonely
And talk is often cheap and filled with air

Sure sometimes they thrill me but nothin' could ever chill me
Like the way they make the time just disappear

Feelin' you are here again, hot on my skin again
Feelin good, a thing I'd never known before

What does it mean to feel? Millions of dreams come real
A feelin' in my soul I'd never felt before

And you always told me no matter how long it holds me
If it falls apart or makes us millonaires

You'll be right here forever, we'll go through this thing together
And on Heaven's golden shore we'll lay our heads

James: English Beefcake

James: obsesión por el POP.

   Cuando te obsesionas, lo único que logras hacer es ponerte más fea. Ve a las ferias y mírate en esas atracciones de espejos. Delgada, gorda, alta, baja o lo que sea.

Javier Mateos


I wish I could create myself
A cool machine designed to help
Not always hurting
Just plug me in and do the rounds
Impress your friends
Save yourself pounds
I'll not be wanting
I wish that things could be that way
But every dog must have its say
The orchestra's tuning
I understand your suffering
I felt the same sting in my heart
That's why I'm singing

Drifting away as lovers do
Heads you win and tails I lose
Nothing to say
much less to do
Unhappy me unhappy you

I know you want it all to end
Transform a love into a friend
Magicians can do
Gut feelings come
Gut feelings go
Like rivers we have no control
They just keep flowing
Yeah, I wish I could create myself
A cool machine or someone else
A lot less knowing

Drifting away as lovers do
Heads you win
And tails I lose
Nothing to say
Much less to do
Unhappy me
Unhappy you
Love can heal
And love can sting
Heads you lose
And tails I win
Unhappy me
Unhappy you
Nothing to say
And much less to do

There's nothing to say
I get in the way
Unable to break obsession
There's nothing to say
I get in the way
Still unable to break obsession

American Football: Never Meant

American Football: 3-0.

  Te dio por esas cosas, fue una salida de tono. Dijiste que no era lo que pensábamos. Fue una noche completa hasta que tu boca se abrió como una cueva de cuentos de los 80.

Javier Mateos

Let's just forget
Everything said
And everything we did
Best friends and better halves

And the autumn night
When we realized
We were falling out of love

There were some things
That were said
That weren't meant
But were said

Like we never did
Not to be

I just think it's best
'Cause you can't miss what you forget

So let's just pretend
Everything and anything
Between you and me
Was never meant
