The race against time

Трудно ми е изобщо да опиша този човек, Erik Francis Schrody. Известен като Everlast, фронтменът на House of Pain, рапър, китарист, рокер, блусар. Още когато записаха великото парче със Сантана стана ясно, че той е повече от това, но за тази тук песен пък изобщо нямам думи.

Everlast – Sixty-Five Roses

It’s been a bit of a while since I seen you smile,
It’s been too long, baby, what went wrong?
Tell me how it got spoiled,
Tell me when it went bad?
How to get back to the times that we had?
We were both young, and our spirits were bold
Now we’re just angry and we act like we’re old
We can’t even talk it out without one of us walking away…

You were 18, I just turned 29
I was fresh out the coffin, girl, you were so fine
The future was bright,
The world, it seemed new
I was with some other woman, I was thinking of you
I know how it hurts,
I know how it feels,
I know how it aches
‘Cause the heart never heals
We’re so busy screaming that we don’t hear the words that we say

Taken out lumps
Took a few blows
Hit a few bumps
Had our fair share of woes
We tried to see good through all of the bad
Put on our smiles,
Pretend we’re not sad
Gotta be tough,
Gotta be strong
Gotta be right,
Can’t afford to be wrong
It’s hard to sing the blues when you’re reading bad news everyday

We worry too much for one couple to bear
Hunger so much for one person to care
We’re fooling our family,
We’re fooling our friends
Pray that the pain and the frustration ends
Hope is a chance,
Hope is a dream,
Hope is a drug,
Maybe hope’s a vaccine
In the race against time I get down on my knees and I pray

I shouted at the devil,
I cursed the Lord,
Offered them everything I can afford
I’d sell out my soul
I’d lie and deceive
Tried to be righteous
Tried to believe
Prayed every prayer
Kicked all of my highs
For hours I’d stare at those beautiful eyes
All of my problems seem to be melting away

The smile on her face says Daddy everything is okay
In the race against time,
I get down on my knees and I pray.
