Sunny Sunday








Sunny Sunday


She pulls the shade;
It's just another sunny Sunday
She dodges the light like Blanche DuBois
Bright colors fade away on
such a sunny Sunday;
She waits for the night to fall
Then she points a pistol through the door
And she aims at the streetlight
While the freeway hisses
Dogs bark as the gun falls to the floor
The streetlight's still burning;
She always misses
But the day she hits
That's the day she'll leave
That one little victory, that's all she needs!
She pulls the shade;
It's just another sunny Monday
She waits for the night to fall

Helena,
As tuas imagens dificilmente poderiam ser acompanhadas por melhor cantora...
Joni Mitchell é do melhor que o mundo folk/rock/jazz (ela não cabe muito bem em nenhuma destas gavetas/prateleiras...)alguma vez teve para oferecer!
Sinto-me priveligiado na partilha da paisagem e dos odores...
Um beijo,
Rui

Obrigada Rui, aqui te deixo algumas declarações dela sobre esta canção:
Asked if "Sunny Sunday" was about herself, she replied: "...it's not autobiographical. Actually it's kind of a composite portrait. I have a friend who I paint with, who had a roommate who did this..." In the interview she continued." ...it's just the story of a woman waiting for some little change to give a new direction... it's a kind of a mysterious little song. It's also the shortest song I ever wrote."
In a concert she described Sunny Sunday “as a song about a woman waiting for a break”.
