Reinvenção

A vida só é possível

reinventada
Anda o sol pelas campinas
e passeia a mão dourada
pelas águas, pelas folhas…
Ah! tudo bolhas
que vêm de fundas piscinas
de ilusionismo….- mais nada.
Mas a vida, a vida, a vida,
só é possível
reinventada.
Vem a lua, vem, retira
as algemas dos meus braços.
Projeto-me por espaços
cheios da tua Figura
Tudo mentira! Mentira
da lua, da noite escura.
Não te encontro, não te alcanço…
Só – no tempo equilibrada,
desprendo-me do balanço
que além do tempo me leva.
Só- na treva,
fico: recebida e dada.
Porque a vida, a vida, a vida,
a vida só é possível
reinventada.
Cecília Meirelles.

Peter Gabriel Mercy Street

Mercy Street
Peter Gabriel
looking down on empty streets, all she can see
are the dreams all made solid
are the dreams all made real

all of the buildings, all of those cars
were once just a dream
in somebody’s head

she pictures the broken glass, she pictures the steam
she pictures a soul
with no leak at the seam

let’s take the boat out
wait until darkness
let’s take the boat out
wait until darkness comes

nowhere in the corridors of pale green and grey
nowhere in the suburbs
in the cold light of day

there in the midst of it so alive and alone
words support like bone

dreaming of mercy street
wear your inside out
dreaming of mercy
in your daddy’s arms again
dreaming of mercy street
swear they moved that sign
dreaming of mercy
in your daddy’s arms

pulling out the papers from the drawers that slide smooth
tugging at the darkness, word upon word

confessing all the secret things in the warm velvet box
to the priest-he’s the doctor
he can handle the shocks

dreaming of the tenderness-the tremble in the hips
of kissing Mary’s lips

dreaming of mercy street
wear your insides out
dreaming of mercy
in your daddy’s arms again
dreaming of mercy street
swear they moved that sign
looking for mercy
in your daddy’s arms

mercy, mercy, looking for mercy
mercy, mercy, looking for mercy

Anne, with her father is out in the boat
riding the water
riding the waves on the sea
