Um Voo Cego A Nada...

" Ter-se nascido ou vivido em Moçambique é uma doenca incurável, uma virose latente. Mesmo para os que se sentem genuínamente portugueses mascara-se a doenca, ignora-se, ou recalca-se e acreditamo-nos curados e imunizados. A mínima exposição a determinadas circunstâncias desencadeia, porém, inevitáveis recorrências e acabamos por arder na altíssima febre de uma recidiva sem regresso nem apelo". Rui Knopfli

Hold On

Tom Waits


They hung a sign up in our town"If you live it up, you won't live it down"So, she left Monte Rio, sonJust like a bullet leaves a gunWith charcoal eyes and Monroe hipsShe went and took that California tripWell, the moon was gold, her hair like windShe said don't look back just come on Jim

Oh you got to hold on, hold onYou got to hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right hereYou gotta hold on

Well, he gave her a dimestore watchAnd a ring made from a spoonEveryone is looking for someone to blameWhen you share my bed, you share my nameWell, go ahead and call the copsYou don't meet nice girls in coffee shopsShe said baby, I still love youSometimes there's nothin left to do

Oh but you got to hold on, hold onBaby got to hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right hereYou got to hold on

Well, God bless your crooked little heartSt. Louis got the best of meI miss your broken-china voiceHow I wish you were still here with me

Oh, you build it up, you wreck it downAnd you burn your mansion to the groundOh there's nothing left to keep you hereBut when you're falling behind in this big blue world

Oh you got to hold on, hold onBaby got to hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right hereYou got to hold on

Down by the Riverside motelIt's 10 below and fallingBy a 99 cent storeShe closed her eyes and started swayingBut it's so hard to dance that wayWhen it's cold and there's no musicOh your old hometown so far awayBut, inside your head there's a record that's playingA song called

Hold on, hold on, baby got to hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, hold on, baby gotta hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, hold on, baby gotta hold onTake my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, hold on, baby gotta hold onAnd take my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, you gotta hold on, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, you gotta hold on baby, you gotta hold onYou gotta hold on, you gotta hold on
