James Blunt, So far gone


Tell me the wars you're fighting
Behind the smile you're hiding

All the things I know you want to say

We tried our best to find us
But there are no lights to guide us
I can't sleep beside a stranger now
Piece by piece we fall apart
With every beat slows down my heart

chorus:
So I'll just say what you won't say
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake
No turning back on what you can't save
So far gone
Yeah, we're so far gone

I've tried hard to remember
This prison cell used to be a shelter
Now we're just looking for the best way out
I can't fight you anymore
You're already one foot out the door

chorus:
So I'll just say what you won't say
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake
No turning back on what you can't save
So far gone,
yeah we're so far gone
And this is the face of letting go
And these are things we already know
So I'll say what you won't say
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake
No turning back on what you can't save
so far gone
we're so far gone
So I'll say what you won't say
and I'll take the blame if it is for your sake
No turning back on what you can't save
So far gone,
yes we're so far gone
yes we're so far gone
So I'll just what you won't say




James Blunt, Annie

One of my favourite song, ever...




Annie, you had your dream on the bright lights
I thought I saw your photograph
And its such a laugh, in a magazine
Did it all come true?

Then Annie, you were made for the big time
They said you were a star to be
In the NME
But the walls came tumbling down down, they go down on me

Annie you're a star
You're just not going very far
And all the world will know your name
And you'll be famous as you are
'Cause I'll sing for you

Annie, would it be nice to be recognized?
Did you practise your autograph?
But then no one's asked
And it's such a shame
Your dreams are crumbling

Annie, why aren't you big in limelight?
'Cause I thought that you said you'd be
A celebrity several years ago
But it all came tumbling down down, they go down on me

Annie you're a star
You're just not going very far
And all the world will know your name
And you'll be famous as you are
'Cause I'll sing for you

Annie you're a star
You're just not going very far
And all the world will know your name
And you'll be famous as you are
'Cause I'll sing for you

Annie you're a star
You're just not going very far
And all the world will know your name
And you'll be famous as you are
'Cause I'll sing for you


James Blunt, No bravery


Cette chanson est sublime, le clip qui l'accompagne également. C'est le témoignage d'une jeune officier de Sa Majesté qui va, en 1999, au Kosovo, dans le dernier conflit de ce XXe siècle si belliqueux, affronter la peur, la mort, devoir prendre des décisions pas toujours en accord avec son Etat-Major. 
James a donné 6 ans de sa vie au dur métier des armes. Il dit avoir survécu aux horreurs de la guerre grâce à sa guitare. Ce video clip est son "diary". De retour à la vie civile, il va militer ardemment pour la paix dans le monde. 






There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
Tears drying on their face.
He has been here.
Brothers lie in shallow graves.
Fathers lost without a trace.
A nation blind to their disgrace,
Since he's been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

Houses burnt beyond repair.
The smell of death is in the air.
A woman weeping in despair says,
He has been here.
Tracer lighting up the sky.
It's another families‚ turn to die.
A child afraid to even cry out says,
He has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
But no one asks the question why,
He has been here.
Old men kneel and accept their fate.
Wives and daughters cut and raped.
A generation drenched in hate.
Yes, he has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.
