2017: Don’t Give Me Those Eyes – James Blunt

Musica nuova e tanta voglia di cambiare, sono queste le due sensazioni che ho provato ascoltando le prime note del nuovo lavoro di James Blunt.

The Afterlove è un album innovativo e frutto di due anni d’intenso impegno e di ricerca ed è il quinto lavoro in studio per il cantautore anglosassone. Come un dolce perfetto, The Afterlove ha tutti gli ingredienti giusti, calibrati e non eccessivi per piacere ad incantare al primo “morso”. Blunt si è avvalso della collaborazione di artisti importanti (Ed Sheeran e Ryan Tedder  tra gli altri) per dare una nuova energia alla sua musica. 

Don’t Give Me Those Eyes prodotto da Stephen Moccio (uno dei tanti collaboratori di David Foster) è una ballata piena di Pathos, una carica emotiva e di commozione derivate dalla sua magistrale interpretazione. 

Una voce incantevole, un lavoro ben fatto che personalmente non mi sono lasciato sfuggire perché The Afterlove è un long playing che merita di essere acquistato, assolutamente.

Lyrics

Staring at you naked
Hotel room in Vegas
I love you but I hate it
And we can’t tell anyone
Take this love and break it
I don’t think I can take it
Go back to him and fake it
Don’t tell him what you’ve done
But when we’re caught in this feeling
And I taste your love, and I taste your love
Whatever the meaning
Well it’s not enough, no it’s not enough
I want to believe in
In a thing call love, in a thing call love
Caught in this feeling
In this feeling, in this feeling
Don’t give me those eyes ‘cause you know me and I can’t say no to you
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to
In another life, darling, I’ll do anything to be with you
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Cross your heart and square it
Hotel room in Paris
Kills me that you’re married
‘Cause we know that should be done
But when we’re caught in this feeling
And I taste your love, and I taste your love
Whatever the meaning
Well it’s not enough, no it’s not enough
I want to believe in
In a thing call love, in a thing call love
Caught in this feeling
In this feeling, in this feeling
Don’t give me those eyes ‘cause you know me and I can’t say no to you
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to
In another life, darling, I’ll do anything to be with you
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Don’t give me those eyes ‘cause you know me and I can’t say no to you
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to (don’t give me those eyes)
In another life, darling, I’ll do anything to be with you (don’t give me those eyes)
We can’t have each other even if we wanted to
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Don’t give me those eyes, don’t give me those eyes
Staring at you naked
Hotel room in Vegas
I love you but I hate it
