Outros Tempos

Esta é uma foto dos meus pais (devidamente "alterada") no dia do casamento em 1976. Para além das óbvias frases (" ah e tal, a noiva não vai de branco...", "ah e tal, o noivo não vai de fato...", e ainda, talvez, "ah e tal, olha-me pró tamanho daqueles cabelos e daquela barba...") há ainda toda uma estética de uma geração tão diferente das de hoje. Era uma geração revolucionária, que tinha ideais, opiniões e sobretudo sonhos!

Digam o que disserem houve algo que falhou... os filhos destas gerações sonhadoras perderam no mínimo a importância do SONHO! Somos uma geração fantástica que faz coisas incríveis mas que esqueceu por completo tudo, todos os antigos ideais... tenho pena... gosto sem dúvida de viver nos dias de hoje, tanto como ser humano, como mulher, mas olho em volta e... parece que falta qualquer coisa... Onde está esta antiga geração? Onde estão os jovens "sonhadores" que dela deveriam ter nascido?... Enfim, só um desabafo. =P


Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air

I was born too late into a world that doesn't care

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn't play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn't have control
And the media couldn't buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn't know everything

[Chorus]

When pop-stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

[Chorus]

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs,
And playing games meant kick around
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

[Chorus]

I was born too late to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
