Pavement - Here




El primer disco que escuché de Pavement fue "Brighten the Corners", y sigue siendo mi preferido. Pero "Here", que está en el primero, es una suerte de himno para mí."¿Himno de qué?", se preguntarán.

No tengo ni la más puta idea. Pero se ponen de pie y cantan igual, carajo.






 

I was dressed for success / But success it never comes / And I'm the only one who laughs
At your jokes when they are so bad / And your jokes are always bad
But they're not as bad as this / Come join us in a prayer
We'll be waiting, waiting where / Everything's ending here
And all the sterile striking it / Defends an empty dock you cast away
And rain upon your forehead / Where the mist's for hire if it's
Just too clear
Let's spend / our last quarter stance randomly
Go down to the outlet once again
 

Painted portrait of minions and slaves / Crotch mavens and one night plays
Are they the only ones who laugh  / At the jokes when they are so bad
And the jokes are always bad / But they're not as bad as this
Come join us in a prayer / We'll be waiting, waiting where
Everything's ending here 

And all the spanish candles / Unsold have gone away to this
And a "run-on piece of mount on" / Trembles, shivers runs down the freeway
I guess she spent her last quarter randomly / I guess a guess is the best I'll do
I'll do, last guess / Last time, last time is the best time
