Sur ma platine : Stars – Your Ex-Lover is Dead (Final Fantasy Remix)

 

En 2005, le groupe canadien ‘Stars’ sortait l’album Set Yourself on Fire mais n’étant pas encore dans le coup à l’époque, j’étais passé à côté !

Heureusement pour moi, ils viennent de sortir il y a quelques jours ‘DO YOU TRUST YOUR FRIENDS?’ dans lequel on retrouve les morceaux de Set Yourself on Fire repensés, réinterprétés ou remixés.

Pour le morceau Your Ex-Lover is Dead, c’est Final Fantasy (Quoi ?! je ne vous ai pas encore parlé de lui…) qui s’y colle. Le résultat est fantastique. Aux paroles déjà superbes, il y ajoute son piano, son violon, son émotion. Le morceau prend alors une dimension et une ampleur supplémentaires. Le genre de morceau qui vous prend aux tripes et qui ne vous quitte plus. J’adore…

Les Paroles :

 

"Your Ex-Lover Is Dead"

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said 'yes I think we've met before'
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name...

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
Now you're outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It's nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard
I'll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love...

Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...

There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you
I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save

I'm not sorry there's nothing to save...
