Esperando que el mundo cambie


Tras la carta abierta de Pink al presidente Bush, que posteaba David recientemente, otra letra que remueve conciencias. Es la canción Waiting on the world to change, va a cargo de John Mayer, y está extraída de su último disco, Continuum.

Os dejo el video más abajo, por si queréis escucharla mientras la leéis.

Me and all my friends
We're all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There's no way we ever could
Now we see everything is going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don't have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
It’s hard to beat the system
When we're standing at a distance
So we keep waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
When you trust your television
What you get is what you got
‘Cuz’ when they own the information ooohhh,
They can bend it all they want

So while we're waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
It's not that we don't care
We just know that the fight ain't fair

(...)

one day our generation
is gonna rule the population
so we keep on waiting
waiting on the world to change


Buen fin de semana.

Me uno a esa esperanza, a esta canción, a todas las cartas abiertas a Bush... a aquellos himnos que hmos olvidado por el camino

Un saludo!
