Puño invisible: "Me extrañarás cuando arda"


Capítulo de puño invisible.

Will Oldham es uno de esos prolíficos cantantes que, oculto tras múltiples proyectos y máscaras, le basta con lo suyo, componer y cantar. Humilde y austero, viviendo a la vera de su guitarra, guarda en el cajón años de buenas críticas que nunca le alimentarán ni el ego, ni la tripa. Con ese extraño don artesano de saber fabricar grandes canciones que siempre parecen pequeñas. Aquí la lectura de Palace Brothers a cargo  de Soulsavers y Mark Lanegan. No se trata de complicar, basta que los que manejan las claves del circo,  le den al lamento el tono solemene y teatral que tan bien le cuadra a la poderosa voz de Lanegan.

"You will miss when I burn"

When you have no one,
No one can hurt you
When you have no one,
No one can hurt you

In the corners there is light
That is good for you
And behind you, I have warned you,
There are awful things

Will you miss me
When I burn, and will you eye me
With a longing
It is longing that I feel
To be missed for, to be real

When you have no one,
No one can hurt you
When you have no one,
No one can hurt you

Will you miss me
When I burn,
And will you close
The others' eyes, it would be
Such a favor
If you would blind them

There is absence, there is lack
There are wolves here abound
You will miss me
When I turn around

When you have no one,
No one can hurt you
When you have no one,
No one can hurt you
