Dagens sangtekst

I min tid som koncertgænger har jeg oplevet en del koncerter. En koncert der står frisk i min erindring var Vetos koncert på dette års Roskilde Festival. Troels Abrahamsen og hans crew gav mig en fantastisk oplevelse. Denne sang er min favorit. Den rammer noget i mig.

Veto - Its a test:

If there ever was a test
then I'd be better than the rest
'cause I know better than the most
that love will haunt you like a ghost
it's the everlasting feeling
of not being who you want to
of not saying what you mean to
though you really, really want to

And as the ashes of the trees
that you have burned down
on your way
comes together in a pile
they form a mountain in my way
and I know that I must force it
to get out of here alive
I try to think of something alse
I try to keep the spirit high

But it's not love that makes you wiser
makes you better or refine you
it's not love that keeps you fit
pulls you up and realigns you
it's the battle with yourself
and it's the things
that you must go through
to get it right and get it over with
and get back in the world

But it's not that I still want you
you're not standing in my way
and it's not that I feel lost
and feel there's something left to say
it just really left methat one question in my head:
do you ever wish that you
could just forget that we have met?

You've got nothing to be scared of
you have no reason to cry
I am not going to leave you
you are not going to die
but it's a war that I am fighting
andI'm not going to give in
I have to tell the enemy
that she is never going to win

Everything was okay
things were just as they should be
everything had reasons
that I was way to blind too see
everything was okay
everyone was in their place
everything was planned
and played out in the proper pace

Now it's your turn for the questions
ask me anything you like
ask me if I'm okay
and if I will be alright
ask me how it feels
to be beaten and be tied
to finally let go
and come out on the other side

Sangen er meget intens og koncerten fra Roskilde kan ses på concept-concerts.com, mod et gratis medlemskab.

Ca. 38.25 min. inde i koncerten sker det.. Og det er GODDAMN smukt!

Kom igang :)
