For no one


Hace muchos, muchos años, del primer disco que escuché de Caetano Veloso me llamaron muchísimo la atención las tres canciones de The Beatles que aquel cantaba: "Eleanor Rigby", "Lady Madonna" y "For no one". Tres canciones maravillosas, tres versiones deliciosas.

De las tres, "For no one" es la que durante estos años más me ha gustado escuchar, tanto por el brasileño como por los ingleses, y cantar.

Pero su letra no sabía de qué hablaba exactamente. Sabía que era una triste canción de amor y desamor.

Ahora que la he leído y traducido con más detenimiento la siento como una amarga saudade.

Hermosa canción.





For no one
Lennon/McCartney

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
you find that all her words of kindness linger on
when she no longer needs you

She wakes up, she makes up,
she takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry
She no longer needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You want her, you need her
and yet you don't believe her when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years

You stay home, she goes out,
she says that long ago she knew someone but now he's gone
She doesn't need him

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
there will be times when all the things she said will fill your head
You won't forget her

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years
