from Oannes * … a musical ‘farewell’ to 2020
Κλείνω το μικρό κύκλο αποχαιρετισμού στο 2020 μ’ αυτό το τραγούδι [από το New Morning, 1970] γιατί αντιπροσωπεύει τη μόνη “έξοδο κινδύνου” που μπορώ να δω, Θεού θέλοντος, για το 2021.
I close this little circle of farewells to 2020 with this song [from New Morning, 1970], because it represents the only “escape exit” I can see for 2021, God willing.
❝ Time passes slowly up here in the mountains
We sit beside bridges and walk beside fountains
Catch the wild fishes that float through the stream
Time passes slowly when you’re lost in a dream
Once I had a sweetheart, she was fine and good-lookin’
We sat in her kitchen while her mama was cookin’
Starin’ out the window to the stars high above
Time passes slowly when you’re searchin’ for love
Ain’t no reason to go in a wagon to town
Ain’t no reason to go to the fair
Ain’t no reason to go up, ain’t no reason to go down
Ain’t no reason to go anywhere
Time passes slowly up here in the daylight
We stare straight ahead and try so hard to stay right
Like the red rose of summer that blooms in the day
Time passes slowly and fades away ❞
As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
