Pearl Jam – A Sort of homecoming

A conclusione della tournée in Sudamerica, i Pearl Jam hanno omaggiato gli U2 con la cover del brano ‘A Sort Of Homecoming‘.
Oltre alle loro canzoni, i Pearl Jam hanno scelto di interpretare – durante il loro tour di nove tappe in Sudamerica – diversi brani di rilievo internazionale. A cominciare dalla cover di ‘A Sort Of Homecoming’ degli U2, per poi proseguire con ‘Comfortably Numb’ dei Pink Floyd.
Il frontman Eddie Vedder ha interpretato canzoni, ‘Imagine’ di John Lennon e ‘I want you so hard’ degli Eagles of Death Metal, finite nella scaletta delle esibizioni. A Bogotà, si è tenuto l’ultimo concerto. E ora crescono le speranze della presenza del gruppo in Italia, nel cast del Rock In Roma 2016.

 

 

Il testo di ‘A Sort Of Homecoming’

And you know it’s time to go
Through the sleet and driving snow
Across the fields of mourning to a light that’s in the distance.
And you hunger for the time
Time to heal, ‘desire’ time
And your earth moves beneath your own dream landscape.
On borderland we run.
I’ll be there, I’ll be there tonight
A high-road, a high-road out from here.
The city walls are all come down
The dust a smoke screen all around
See faces ploughed like fields that once
Gave no resistance.
And we live by the side of the road
On the side of a hill as the valleys explode
Dislocated, suffocated
The land grows weary of it’s own.
O com-away, o com-away, o-com, o com-away, I say I
O com-away, o com-away, o-com, o com-away, I say I
Oh, oh on borderland we run
And still we run, we run and don’t look back
I’ll be there, I’ll be there
Tonight, tonight
I’ll be there tonight, I believe
I’ll be there so high
I’ll be there tonight, tonight.
Oh com-away, I say, o com-away, I say.
The wind will crack in winter time
This bomb-blast lightning waltz.
No spoken words, just a scream
Tonight we’ll build a bridge across the sea and land
See the sky, the burning rain
She will die and live again tonight.
And your heart beats so slow
Through the rain and fallen snow
Across the fields of mourning to a light that’s in the distance.
Oh, don’t sorrow, no don’t weep
For tonight at last I am coming home.
I am coming home.
