#18 Manic Street Preachers – Dylan & Caitlin


Nicky Wire nunca ha sido ajeno a escribir canciones en tributo a o basadas en la vida de otras personas. Para Resistance Is Futile teníamos 3, For Eternity para David Bowie, International Blue para Yves Klain, y Dylan & Caitlin para Dylan Thomas y su esposa Caitlin Macnamara. El celebrado pero perturbado poeta es una de las figuras más icónicas de Gales, por lo que la pregunta no era si algún día escribirían sobre el, sino cuándo. Para esta canción los Manics se hacen acompañar de una de sus colaboradoras favoritas de los últimos tiempos, The Anchoress.

Manic Street Preachers – Dylan & Caitlin

The blank page awaits
Love has deserted and made
A fool and a drunk out of me
My wishes no longer may breathe

At home with this feeling again
Love has deserted the pain
The alcohol starts to sink in
The drinking blends us to sin

I never meant to believe in you
It’s so hard just surviving the truth
Words don’t cover the scars anymore
The tears last longer than before

Together the tenderness cries
Together the tenderness cries

In dreams I will be by your side
In books, photographs and in voice
In verse and metre and rhyme
I’m sorry and I wish that I tried

Dylan don’t leave me behind
Love has divided and died
The beauty still shines in your eyes
America corrupted and lied

I never meant to believe in you
It’s so hard just surviving the truth
Words don’t cover the scars anymore
The tears last longer than before

Together the tenderness cries
Together the tenderness cries

I never meant to believe in you
It’s so hard just surviving the truth
The words don’t cover the scars anymore
The tears last longer than before

Together the tenderness cries
Together the tenderness cries
