I love to watch the road
 

I love to watch the road
I love to watch the road
Sunshine and shadows play,
    rain comes
        and the spring
I love to watch the road
I love to watch the road

People pass to and fro
    bringing news
People pass to and fro
    bringing news
I’m happy to live in my thoughts
    when the breeze cools,
        cools me gently
I love to watch the road
I love to watch the road

All day with wide open eyes
    I’ll sit at my door alone
If the time comes for you to be suddenly here,
        I’ll see you

All day with wide open eyes
    I’ll sit at my door alone
If the time comes for you to be suddenly here,
        I’ll see you

Meanwhile, sometimes,
    I’ll inwardly laugh and sing
Meanwhile, sometimes,
    I’ll inwardly laugh and sing
While a scent on the breeze floats,
    floats past me
        softly
I love to watch the road
I love to watch the road
Sunshine and shadows play,
    rain comes
        and the spring
I love to watch the road
I love to watch the road

Rabindranath Tagore

William Radice – A Tribute to Tagore

 

Let me pronounce these words the day I go:
             Nothing compares
             With what I’ve seen,
      With what I’ve come to know.

The hundred-petalled lotus that upon
               This sea of light
               Blooms—I’ve drunk
      Its nectar: let me to everyone

Speak of this good fortune on the day I go.
              This world of forms
              In which I’ve played
      Allows what has no form to show

Its beauty: with my eyes I’ve witnessed this.
          That which can’t
          Be touched has touched
     And hugged the whole of my body—thus

If all of this must end, then let it go.
          These are the words
          Which on the day
     I leave I want you all to know.

Rabindranath Tagore
             tr William Radice

Ricky Shayne in 'mutwillig, Shayne' von Stephan Geene

Beim Donaufestival 2017 in „mutwillig, Shayne“, ein Theateressay und postkritisches Konzert von Stephan Geene, sang Ricky Shayne den Song The Long And Winding Road von Paul McCartney live in einer so angenehm reduzierten schlichten Art, dass ich wünschte ich hätte mich über das Verbot hinweggesetzt und diese Schönheit aufgenommen. In Ermangelung dieser Aufnahme fand ich jedoch eine der ersten Studiosessions der Beatles, zum Glück noch ohne die völlig unnötigen acht Violinen, vier Bratschen, vier Celli, drei Trompeten, drei Posaunen, zwei Gitarren, und dem Chor aus 14 Frauen mit denen Phil Spector den Song später für Let It Be überarbeitet hatte.

The Long And Winding Road
Paul McCartney

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to your door

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day
Why leave me standing here
Let me know the way

Many times I’ve been alone
And many times I’ve cried
Anyway you’ll never know
The many ways I’ve tried
But still they lead me back
To the long winding road

You left me waiting here
A long long time ago
Don’t leave me standing here
Lead me to your door

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long long time ago
Don’t keep me waiting here
Lead me to your door
