U2: Blanco como la nieve

Tenía pensado comentarles en detalle "No line on the horizon", el nuevo trabajo de la banda irlandesa U2, pero creo que les cundirá más lo que sigue. Es uno de sus temas, "White as snow", y, afortunadamente, no es una canción potente, ni épica, ni demasiado original. Es decir, no se parece en casi nada al resto del disco. O sea, es como la portada (ver cabecera), sencilla pero maravillosa. Corran a comprarla en iTunes, a partir del 3 de marzo. ¿Los otros cortes?, no sé, ustedes sabrán en qué quieren gastarse su dinero.

Where I came from there were no hills at all
The land was flat, the highway straight and wide
My brother and I would drive for hours
Like we had years instead of days
Our faces as pale as the dirty snow

Once I knew there was a love divine
Then came a time I thought it knew me not
Who can forgive forgiveness where forgiveness is not?
Only the lamb as white as snow

And the water, it was icy
As it washed over me
And the moon shone above me

Now this dry ground it bears no fruit at all
Only poppies laugh under the crescent moon
The road refuses strangers
The land the seeds we sow
Where might we find the lamb as white as snow?

As boys we would go hunting in the woods
To sleep the night shooting out the stars
Now the wolves are very passing stranger
Every face we cannot know
If only a heart could be as white as snow
If only a heart could be as white as snow
