ALONE IS ALONE IS ALONE – the blow job

Monday, December 29th, 2008

ALONE IS ALONE IS ALONE is something about the inherent heart break that hovers upon the relationship between the artist and his ever changing status in the world. It’s an eternal battle of sorts; on the one hand, there’s the urgent need to get somewhere,saying something, and on the other hand there’s this gnawing sense of going nowhere, with nothing to say. Or worse, going nowhere with something to say. Or worse yet, going somewhere HUGE with nothing to say. Or worse, what ever. There’s always something worse, that’s for sure, in that darkly road of a fervent artist. So depressing, but then, there’s the music getting in the way, and it makes you sunddelnly believe. Against all odds, of courrse. I mean, listen to these buch of musicians. It’s really a celebration. This first single from the new album was one of the last to be recorded. Most of the musicians heard the song for the first time the day we recorded it. I called the harmonica player on that very day ( I had met him a couple of days earlier per chance), and asked him if he were free just now, to come to the studio, and give the song a spontaneous blow. Oh man, he did. The greatest blow job ever.

If this is your low tide, I’m on the wrong side, hearing your pride beaten down, flat on the ground, wings flapping around, crying for help. No body cares, as you’re falling from grace, and the race keeps numbing your heart to the craze. No body listens, there’s no intermission, the world keeps spinning, not easing your mind. No one cares anymore, once a star once a whore; no one covers your song, no one’s rolling a stone. Get it into your head, baby, alone is alone is a lone!

Alone is Alone is Alone

The minute you go is the minute I know, I lost your love forever.
The minute you go is the minute I know, I had your precious splendor in my hand.

Baby, don’t go, please don’t go.

If this is your low tide, I’m on the wrong side, hearing your pride beaten down,
flat on the ground, wings flapping around, crying for help.

And no body cares, as you’re falling from grace,
and the race keeps numbing your heart to the craze.
And no body listens, there’s no intermission,
the world keeps spinning, not easing your mind.
No one cares anymore, once a star once a whore; no one covers your song,
No one’s rolling a stone. Get it into your head, baby, alone is alone is a lone!

הרגע שעזבת הוא הרגע שידעת שאיבדת לעד את אהבתך.
הרגע שהלכת הוא הרגע שידעת, שהיה זוהר יקר בידך.
בייבי, אל תלך, אל תלך.

אם זה רגע שפל, אני בצד הלא נכון, הגאוּת שלך מוכה על הרצפה, כנפיה עוד מפרפרות בסביבה, וזועקות לעזרה.

ולאף אחד לא איכפת, כשאתה נופל מגדולתך, והמרוץ ממשיך להקפיא את ליבך לטרוף.
ואף אחד לא מקשיב, ואין הפסקה, והעולם ממשיך להסתובב, ושום דבר אינו מניח את דעתך.
ולאף אחד לא איכפת עוד, פעם כוכב ופעם זונה;
אף אחד לא עושה קאברים לשירים שלך, והאבנים אינן מתגלגלות.
תכניס את זה לראש שלך, בייבי, לבד זה לבד זה לבד
