Canción de la semana: Emery "Studying Politics (Live in Houston)"

Hay musica que nunca logras dejar atrás. Buena o mala, solo regresas a esas canciones porque significan algo para ti.

Bueno, Emery ha sido un banda así para mi. Su música siempre me ha gustado, sus letras siempre me han tocado de alguna manera y, a pesar de que pasan los años, sigo pensando que ellos son unos de los mejores músicos en vivo.

Este año comenzaron una gira en la que tocan canciones de sus muchos discos en versiones acústicas y cada concierto es, tecnicamente, un meet & greet con la banda. En Houston grabaron toda la sesión musical e hicieron un disco en vivo. De ese disco una de las canciones que fue mejor recibida por mi fue "Studying Politics" porque hicieron una versión muy diferente a la original, agregando un estilo country a la canción.

Aqui les dejo la nueva versión:



Letras

It’s like a pencil with erasers at both ends
I want it all but we’re dealing in percents
And these activities that you have engaged in
This is the politics of seeing you dance with him
We began with concluding remarks
Pick up the pieces and examine the parts
Your words always cut when they're cliché
But here’s my knife because I came for the buffet

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
I’ve caught you once again
It’s in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)
Using hands for emphasis

You’d like to think that you’re the best part of me
But I confess there is nothing left of you here (nothing left of you here)
These parallels and silly games
Hide your face and say the name
Say the name (say the name)

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin (Uh Uh)
And I’ve caught you once again
It’s in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this (Uh Uh)
Your tears for emphasis

There’s that smile again (there’s that smile again)
You fake it and I follow you right in
What a fool I've been
To fall for it each time

This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That oh-so-tightly fit
It’s in the way you sell every word and phrase
And leaving me to know how much the meaning weighs

That dress and those eyes are telling white white lies
White white lies
