Songs of the week - 19

Le mie canzoni della settimana sono...
  • Un brano dei The Gathering, band che non ho paura di definire "i nuovi Pink Floyd";
  • Un singolo di una diciottenne norvegese che, in quanto a maturità artistica ed interpretativa, fa mangiare la polvere a tante colleghe ultra-trentenni; 
  • Un brano della mia piromane* norvegese preferita, la cui voce angelica culla in un attimo di pace e speranza.
The Gathering - Heroes for Ghosts


You moved all that was in my world and showed me all the new colours,
In my universe where storms run.
Falling, falling, falling, fall into me!
I hear echoes of my speech
And I see shadows of my walk.
[...]
Were watching stone saints fall over,
While the black crows will be taking to the sky.
[...]
My heart is drifting through all shades of green.
My head is thinking through meadows of the sea...
Aurora - Murder Song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) [Acoustic Version]

He holds the gun against my head.
I close my eyes and – bang!  I am dead.
I know he knows that he’s killing me for mercy.
[...]
Oh, he did it all to spare me from the awful things in life that come.
Kari Rueslåtten - Rainy Days Ahead
I'm no longer scared!
Can you feel? Can you hear? My heart beating when you're near.
Close your eyes, make believe you're not alone tonight!
I will be a shadow on your side, a quiet light.

* "Rumours where I lit the fire, I lit the fire then ran away. [...] The house burned down to the ground, to the ground-ashes and dust" da Sorrow to My Door.
