Jackson C. Frank "I Want to Be Alone (Dialogue)" et "Marlene"





J'écoutais le disque Headless Heroes, et tout d'un coup une reprise de Jackson C.Frank
Blues run the game, assez belle reprise. Voici le trop peu connu (eh oui encore un)
Jackson c.Frank avec deux chansons, la première illustrant magnifiquement une séquence
du film des Daft Punk "Electroma" intitulée
I Want To be Alone (Dialogue).
Un pur joyau.



Pour la deuxième chanson, "Marlene", toujours le même homme, quelques douloureuses
années plus tard, en 1975.



Jackson C. Frank - Blues Run The Game [Deluxe / 2003]



The ghost of her
Floats over there
And the smile, the smile
It seems so lonely
She gave me her hand
As I struck up the band
And she seemed to sigh, she seemed to sigh
'You're the only'

And then we danced like two snowflakes
In the fallen wind
In the wind
And in
Do me a favor God
Won't you let Marlene come in

The gymnasium floor
The price bound door
The jungle bird the jungle bird
That you showed me
Her love was so clean
To tell the truth Marlene
The sound of your tambourine still owns me

We were so young then
Now that I'm old I know, oh I know
I loved you right then
I would have made Marlene let go

My friends in the bars
Hell they only see the scars
And I do not give a damn, I do not give a damn That I loved you
I don't know why
But once you seen the sky
You think you know all birds are lovely

But this snow on the ground
It would start tonight
It's 22 years dead
Since I saw the light

The world it explodes
As such a high powered load
To run, to run, to run
Was all I left me
Appeared as breeze
High in the clouds we'll freeze
To fly, to fly away
Was the lesson

You know the fire it burned her life out
Left me little more
I am a crippled singer
And it evens up the score

The ghost of her
It floats over there
And the smile, the smile
It seems so lonely
She gave me her hand
As I struck up the band
And she seemed to sigh, she seemed to sigh
'You're the only'

And then we danced like two snowflakes
In the fallen wind
In the wind
Do me a favor God
Won't you let Marlene come in
Do me a favor God
Won't you let Marlene come in
