Coup de coeur

Publié le par Zizi Mule A Tresse

Et dans tout les sens du terme ! Nneka, c'est un petit bout de femme à la voix palpitante, une nigériane qui chante comme elle vie, intensément et passionnément. Si on ne devait connaître qu'une chanson d'elle, ce serait Heartbeat. Battant dans nos oreilles et résonnant dans nos oreilles, ce morceau issu de son album No longer at ease, est une pure merveille de rythme et de sonorité. A écouter en boucle !

You said you'd be there 4 me
In times of trouble when I need you and I'm down
And like why do you need friendship
It's from the things that been changing
You have goals to achieve
But the road you take abroad and heartless that wants you make another way
You throw stones
Can't you see that I am human I am breathing
but you don't give a damn

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing

Blood blood blood ... keeps rushing

And now the world is asleep
How will you ever wake her up when she gets deep in the dreams, wishing
And yet so many die
And still we think that it is all about us
It's all about you
You sold your soul to the evil and the lust
and the passion and the money and you
And the same ones die, and people hunger for talking,
suffer under civilized damn robbers but they ? us

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing

Blood blood blood ... keeps rushing

Invaded, eliminated, erased, interrogated
Our tradition, our love 4 our fellow countrymen,
our property, our ancestors - have died

Can you feel my heart beating ?

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you feel the pain you're causing

Joli rythme!
ça pulse dans les neurones
et ça vibre dans les sinus!
