(la famosa foto di famiglia sul retro copertina)

“Un'anima è volata via quando è stato versato il sangue, un'anima che si prendeva cura della vita così profondamente...”

Impressionanti, all'inizio e alla fine del brano, i colpi di pistola esplosi da quel bastardo di Mark Chapman (che possa morire nel dolore) quel maledetto 8 dicembre 1980...

Lennon ed il suo assassino, qualche ora prima dell'omicidio.
Lennon ed il suo assassino, qualche ora prima dell'omicidio.
Let the tears dry
And bring back your smile
Hear the mountains cry

The tears will grow
Where you laid your tears
Rivers will flow, rivers will flow
Flow where you rest your fears

A soul has fled when the blood was shed
A soul that cared for life so deeply
The memory will grow in us
And make you and I a family

Forse la più bella canzone dedicata a John Lennon e al dramma del suo assassinio l'ha scritta David Gilmour nell'album "About Face" del 1984. Gilmour disse di avere sostituito la pistola usata da Chapman con un coltello per rendere il messaggio della canzone più universale.


Some of them standing, some were waiting in the line
As if there was something that they thought they might find
Taking some strength from the feelings that always were shared
And in the background, the eyes that just stared

What was it brought you out here in the dark?
Was it your only way of making your mark
Did you get rid of all the voices in your head?
Do you now miss them and the things that they said?

On your own admission you raised up the knife
And you brought it down ending another man's life
When it was done you just threw down the blade
While the red blood spread wider like the anger you made

I don't want this anger that's burning in me
It's something from which it's so hard to be free
But none of the tears that we cry in sorrow or rage
Can make any difference, or turn back the page
