My Dear Someone

I wanna go all over the world,
And start living free
I know that there's somebody who,
Is waiting for me
I'll build a boat, steady and true
As soon as it's done,
I'm gonna sail along in a dream,
Of my dear someone

One little star, smilin' tonight
Knows where he lies
Stay, little star, steady and bright,
To guide me afar
Rush, little wind, over the deep,
For now I've begun

Hurry and take me straight into the arms,
Of my dear someone

Hurry and take me into the arms,
Of my dear someone


Gillian Welch

Uma canção perfeita de uma cauntautora fascinante, de quem Emmylou Harris disse: 'Gillian writes with what at first seems to be childlike simplicity, but on closer listening, you realize you are in the presence of an old soul, one who knows the blue highways of the heart. Aqui uma entrevista ao "The New Yorker", com delicioso título "The Ghostly Ones".
