En dag som I dag

En dag som i dag savner man NYC. exen Kathy, hvis hun da stadig bor på orient Street ved Broadway. Og selvfølgelig New Jersey turnpike...

Let us be lovers,
We'll marry our fortunes together.
I've got some real estate
Here in my bag.

So we bought a pack of cigarettes,
And Mrs. Wagner's pies,
And walked off
To look for America.
"Kathy", I said,
As we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh,
Michigan seems like a dream to me now.

It took me four days
To hitch-hike from Saginaw.
"I've come to look for America."

Laughing on the bus,
Playing games with the faces,
She said the man in the gabardine suit
Was a spy.

I said, "Be careful,
His bow tie is really a camera."
"Toss me a cigarette,
I think there's one in my raincoat."
We smoked the last one
An hour ago.

So I looked at the scenery,
She read her magazine;
And the moon rose over an open field.
"Kathy, I'm lost", I said,
Though I knew she was sleeping.
"I'm empty and aching and
I don't know why."

Counting the cars
On the New Jersey Turnpike
They've all come
To look for America,
All come to look for America,
All come to look for America.

Tekst. Simon & Garfunkel - America -

jeg er en fra Simon og Garfunkel generationen. Som du har jeg også ofte ladet disse herrer fortolke min sindstilstand. Jeg tillod mig at gå på youtube og fandt -america- sådan at jeg hørte og læste lyrikken samtiddig.
bagefter sad jeg med tanken- ja selvfølgelig kan disse to herrer beskrive og fortolke hvordan man kan have det, sådan en dag hvor man ikke er helt nede, men heller ikke i top.
du skal vide at jeg har manglet dine indlæg og tit været inde for se om der var livstegn fra dig. Rolig , den gamle dame flirter ikke, men du kan noget med dine indlæg der fanger mig. jeg glæder mig allerede til næste sommer ,hvis vi skal på en cykeltur igen'
