71 Better Days

(Jackson)
Fra Ian Gillan albummet One Eye To Morocco

Den omvandrende MLJ (Michael Lee Jackson) spillede denne sang for mig ud på de meget små timer nede i Darzet (Dorset) under en af sine svimlende turner på en planet, som har noget til fælles med hans pæneste skjorte – den er slet ikke stor nok til ham.

Den insisterende guitarlyd er en lunefuld nuance af formørket indigo. Den modne tekst udtrykker frygt og håb.

Better Days

(Jackson)

And we don't have much
But these four walls
And it's just enough
To keep us warm
On those cold winter nights

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And we work so hard
Each and every day
We're growing old
We get afraid
You can count on me

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And if I had
Only one more day
I'd spend it right here with you

Under a million stars
Our two hearts pound
And that's the only thing
That matters now

We know a few things
About life and death
Pretty soon
We'll learn the rest
I'm in no rush at all

Let's think about better days
Not what we did
But what we'll do

And if I had
Only one more day
I'd spend it right here with you
