SERIES - ELTONmanía - Your Song




Hoy faltan 32 días para el primer concierto de Elton John en Panamá.  Esta es otra canción emblemática de Elton: Your Song.  Es otra balada compuesta por él, cuyas letras fueron escritas por Bernie Taupin.  Es parte del segundo álbum de Elton, lanzado en 1970, y titulado "Elton John".  En 2004, la canción fue colocada en la lista de "Las 500 canciones más grandes de todos los tiempos" de la revista Rolling Stones, ocupando la posición 136.

La canción es importante por las corrientes musicales que inspiran su melodía; y luego por el desfiles de éxitos que alcanzó y el significado que ha tenido en la vida de miles de personas, en sus vidas, a lo largo de décadas.  Sin más que añadir, aquí está su lírica, y el video.  Esto es Elton!

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
