Moon over Bourbon street

Tanto tempo fa Lisa mi chiese di disegnarle un lupo.

Diciamo che questo post è la riprova che nella vita non si deve mai perdere le speranze.

So che lei avrebbe abbinato al disegno una canzone degna.

Per me la scelta è stata facile con un bel pezzo jazz di Sting ispirato al romanzo di Anne Rice “Intervista con il vampiro”.

There’s a moon over Bourbon Street tonight
I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight
I’ve no choice but to follow that call
The bright lights, the people, and the moon and all
I pray everyday to be strong
For I know what I do must be wrong
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

It was many years ago that I became what I am
I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb
Now I can never show my face at noon
And you’ll only see me walking by the light of the moon
The brim of my hat hides the eye of a beast
I’ve the face of a sinner but the hands of a priest
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

She walks everyday through the streets of New Orleans
She’s innocent and young, from a family of means
I have stood many times outside her window at night
To struggle with my instinct in the pale moonlight
How could I be this way when I pray to God above?
I must love what I destroy and destroy the thing I love
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street
