Testo Whirl Away – Patti Smith

Testo della canzone Whirl Away di Patti Smith
Album: Peace And Noise
Hello friend
I’ve come a-calling
Passively stationed
Active patrol
Sliding in high noon
Like some reluctant sheriff
Not want to get involved in at all
Who stands guard for each other
Why must we guard anything at all
Anything at all

From the earth’s four corners
The people are calling
Forming questions
But the questions are hard
All men and brothers are killing each other
And mother earth is ringing in wonder
Who stands guard for each other
Why must we guard anything at all
Anything at all

Whirl away now
Whirl away now
Whirl away

There’s a cross on the road
There’s a great will turning
Some seeking answers
Some are born with answers
You can hold on to the blade
And turn around forever
Be flung into space into another kind of grace
Who stands guard for each other
Why must we guard anything at all
Anything at all

Whirl away now
Whirl away now
Whirl away

Whirl away now
Whirl away now
Whirl away now

Some give up their hands
Some give up their land
Some giving their life
There in the fields of green
Stops life all around you
And yet you will
Cut someone down for their posesssions
Some material things
And our children they’ll be blown away
Wishes in the wind
For the sake of their coat
Or the colours of their coat
For the colour of their skin
Or the name of their shoes
And the mother cries
Why are they taking my son
And the father wonders
Why they’ve taken my boy
He extended his hand
He gave him his land
He gave him his bread
He gave him his heart

Hello friend
