...and if there is eternity I’d love you there again

De nuevo, necesito chute de música. Y aunque no parecía ser lo que más me pegaba, por alguna razón acabo escuchando Planet Waves, el disco que Dylan sacó en 1974, justo antes de su glorioso Blood on the Tracks. En mi kabeza lo tengo por un disco menor pero hoy me ha parecido grandioso.

No tengo dudas de que soy un Leonard-Cohen-kind-of-guy, y de que no existe canción de amor ni remotamente parecida a I'm your man, pero escucho Wedding song y me flipo. Y eso es exactamente lo que necesito ahora mismo.

No encuentro el vídeo en Youtube (sólo hay versiones de fans) y tampoco está en Spotify, así que os tendréis que conformar con la letra (que no leeréis, of course :)

I love you more than ever, more than time and more than love
I love you more than money and more than the stars above
Love you more than madness, more than waves upon the sea
Love you more than life itself, you mean that much to me
Ever since you walked right in, the circle’s been complete
I’ve said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street
To the courtyard of the jester which is hidden from the sun
I love you more than ever and I haven’t yet begun
You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live
When I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give
Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from the hole
Quenched my thirst and satisfied the burning in my soul
You gave me babies one, two, three, what is more, you saved my life
Eye for eye and tooth for tooth, your love cuts like a knife
My thoughts of you don’t ever rest, they’d kill me if I lie
I’d sacrifice the world for you and watch my senses die
The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth
We’ll play it out the best we know, whatever it is worth
What’s lost is lost, we can’t regain what went down in the flood
But happiness to me is you and I love you more than blood
It’s never been my duty to remake the world at large
Nor is it my intention to sound a battle charge
’Cause I love you more than all of that with a love that doesn’t bend
And if there is eternity I’d love you there again
Oh, can’t you see that you were born to stand by my side
And I was born to be with you, you were born to be my bride
You’re the other half of what I am, you’re the missing piece
And I love you more than ever with that love that doesn’t cease
You turn the tide on me each day and teach my eyes to see
Just bein’ next to you is a natural thing for me
And I could never let you go, no matter what goes on
‘Cause I love you more than ever now that the past is gone

Bob Dylan
