And the damage is done…

Damage

I found the way
By the sound of your voice
So many things to say
But these are only words
Now I’ve only words
Once there was a choice

Did I give you much?
Well, you gave me things
You gave me stars to hold
Songs to sing

I only want to be loved

And I hurt and I hurt
And the damage is done
You gave me songs to sing
Shadow and sun
Earthbound, starblind
Tied to someone

Why didn’t I stay?
Why couldn’t I?
So many lives to cross
Well, I just had to leave
There goes everything
Everything

Can I meet you there?
God knows the place
And I’ll touch your hand
Kiss your face

We only want to be loved
We only want to be loved

I only want to be loved
And I hurt and I hurt
And the damage is done
You gave me songs to sing
Shadow and sun
Earthbound, starblind
Tied to someone

     La magnifique chanson Damage interprétée par le duo de musiciens hors pair David Sylvian et Robert Fripp fait partie de l’album Live éponyme paru en 1994 qui avait été enregistré par les deux musiciens lors du dernier concert donné lors leur tournée commune de 1993 et mixé par Fripp. Il a été réédité de manière heureuse en 2001 avec une qualité de son nettement améliorée par David Sylvian (Label Virgin).
