Cair em esquecimento



Mixes for blue boys and blue girls.

Por detrás desta frase que serve de mote às Miss Tapes estão os Black Tape for a Blue Girl. Perdi-lhes o rasto há muito tempo. Nunca mais os ouvi e não sei se existem, ainda. Ficaram o nome, o sugestivo nome, as tapes, a boy and a girl.


Groove is in the heart


Well he was thailand based
She was an airforce wife
He used to fly weekends
It was the easy life
But then it turned around
And he began to change
She didnt wonder then
She didnt think it strange
But then he got a call
He had to leave that night
He couldnt say too much
But it would be alright
He didnt need to pack
Theyd meet the next night
He had a job to do
Flying to cambodia

And as the nights passed by
She tried to trace the past
The way he used to look
The way he used to laugh
I guess shell never know
What got inside his soul
She couldnt make it out
Just couldnt take it all
He had the saddest eyes
The girl had ever seen
He used to cry some nights
As though he lived a dream
Ans as she held him close
He used to search her face
As though she knew the truth
Lost inside cambodia

But then a call came through
They said hed soon be home
She had to pack a case
And they would make a rendez-vous
But now a year has passed
And not a single word
And all the love she knew
Has disappeared out in the haze
Cambodia - dont cry now - no tears now

And now the years have passed
With not a single word
But there is only one thing left
I know for sure
She wont see his face again

Can we start again?, perguntava Stuart Staples, secundado por um coro de mulheres que em vez de lhe responderem ecoavam a pergunta. Retórica, certamente. Nada se começa outra vez. Tudo se transforma, pois.
Obrigado a todos os que escreveram mensagens pela força. Obrigado aos que não escreveram nada mas que ouvem estas cassetes imaginárias. Obrigado ao Francisco, por ser ao mesmo tempo a maior inspiração e o maior activista em favor desta causa que não defende nem proclama nada senão a música. Pouco para dizer, muito para escutar, tudo para sentir. É assim.
