#5 Arctic Monkeys – Cornerstone


“I’m beginning to think I imagined you all along”

Segunda entrada de los Monkeys en esta lista, y es con la que tal vez sea su mejor balada hasta la fecha.  Alex Turner demuestra que no solo es un gran observador social, si no que también le hace a las historias de amor y desamor, temas que ha explorado poco hasta la fecha.  La lírica de esta canción es remarcable, así como la historia que cuenta que asumo no es autobiográfica dado que ya lleva un buen rato feliz con Alexa Chung.  De lo mejor del Humbug, que tal vez signifique algo si recordamos que esta canción no la produjo Josh Homme.

Arctics Monkeys – Cornerstone

I thought a saw you in the Battleship, but it was only a look alike
She was nothing but a vision trick under the warning light
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
But my chances turned to toast when I asked her if I could call her your name

I thought I saw you in the Rusty Hook, huddled up in a wicker chair
I wandered over for a closer look and kissed whoever was sitting there
She was close and she held me very tightly
Till I asked awfully politely, “Please, can I call you her name?”

And I elongated my lift home
Yeah, I let him go the long way round
I smelled your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I thought I saw you in the Parrot’s Beak messing with a smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak, and she had a broken arm
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote in a letraset, “No, you can’t call me her name”

Tell me, where’s your hiding place
I’m worried I’ll forget your face
And I’ve asked everyone
I’m beginning to think I imagined you all along

And I elongated my lift home
Yeah, I let him go the long way round
I smelled your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I saw your sister in the Cornerstone on the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own, I thought she might understand
She was close, well you couldn’t get much closer
She said “I’m really not supposed to, but yes, you can call me anything you want”
