Comfortably Numb

Coro:
   Hello.
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

   Come on, now.
I hear you’re feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

   Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

Gilmour:
   There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I’ve got that feeling once again.
I can’t explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Coro:
   Ok.
Just a little pinprick. [ping]
There’ll be no more –aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

   Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working. Good.
That’ll keep you going for the show.
Come on it’s time to go.

Gilmour:
   There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

David Gilmour & Roger Waters, – The Wall – 1979

Se questa vi sembra poesia – e lo è -, e magari potrebbe indurvi a pensare che sia più che sufficiente leggerla qui dentro, è perché probabilmente non avete presente Gilmour mentre la suona. Se questo è il vostro caso, dovreste assolutamente vedere questa canzone suonata da Gilmour. Vi consiglio di ascoltare e vedere Comfortably Numb suonata nel concerto live a Venezia del 1989. E poi rivederla anche (e soprattutto) in Pulse Live, nel concerto registrato a Earls Court, Londra, il 20 ottobre 1994. Gli assoli di chitarra sono molto diversi tra i due concerti, Gilmour improvvisa parecchio, ha un… Leggi il resto »
