I Want You

Urgenza

“I Want You” – Elvis Costello

I want you
You’ve had your fun you don’t get well no more
I want you
Your fingernails go dragging down the wall
Be careful darling you might fall
I want you
I woke up and one of us was crying
I want you
You said “Young man I do believe you’re dying”
I want you
If you need a second opinion as you seem to do these days
I want you
You can look in my eyes and you can count the ways
I want you
Did you mean to tell me but seem to forget
I want you
Since when were you so generous and inarticulate
I want you
It’s the stupid details that my heart is breaking for
It’s the way your shoulders shake and what they’re shaking for
I want you
It’s knowing that he knows you now after only guessing
It’s the thought of him undressing you or you undressing him
I want you
He tossed some tattered compliment your way
I want you
And you were fool enough to love it when he said
“I want you”
I want you
No-one who wants you could want you more
I want you
I want you
The truth can’t hurt you it’s just like the dark
I want you
But in time you see things clear and stark
I want you
Go on and hurt me then we’ll let it drop
I want you
I’m afraid I won’t know where to stop
I want you
I’m not ashamed to say that I cried for you
I want you
I want to know the things you did that we do too
I want you
Did you call his name out as he held you down
I want you
Oh no my darling not with that clown
I want you
You’ve had your fun you don’t get well no more
I want you
No-one who wants you could want you more
I want you
Every night as I go off to bed and when I wake up
When I put on my make up
When I change my face up
I want you
I want you
I’m going to say it once again ‘til I instill it
I know I’m going to feel this way until you kill it
I want you
I want you

    1. A me piace anche il pezzo. Trasmette la stessa urgenza comunicata dalla fotografia che ci può essere nel volere qualcuno. Tanto da abbracciarlo in mezzo alla strada, anche se lui è così carico di pacchetti che non può ricambiare il gesto.

    1. Elvis Costello mi piace da parecchio. Di questo pezzo conoscevo solo la versione da studio, che ha un arrangiamento molto più morbido e una lunga introduzione. Questa invece inizia subito dove secondo me doveva iniziare e anche lo stile è quello che piace a me.
