Από τον Ανδρέα Άνθιμο

 

 

NINA SIMONE: SUZANNE

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - DO NOTHIN' TILL YOU HEAR FROM ME

You can hear the boats go by, you can spend the night forever

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE: FOR ALL WE KNOW

And you know that she's half-crazy but that's why you want to be there

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE//// COME ON BACK JACK

And she feeds you tea and oranges that come all the way from China

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - IT DON'T MEAN A THING

And just when you mean to tell her that you have no love to give her

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - CRY ME A RIVER

Then he gets you on her wavelength

And she lets the river answer that you've always been her lover

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - DONT YOU PAY THEM NO MIND

And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind

And you know that she will trust you

For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - TAKE ME TO THE WATER

And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - JUST IN TIME

And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - THE MORE I SEE YOU

And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - I WISH I KNEW HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO BE FREE

He said all men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - YOU'VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG

But he himself was broken, long before the sky would open

 

 

 

HUMAN TOUCH- NINA SIMONE

Forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

 

 

 

HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS - NINA SIMONE

And you want to travel with him, and you want to travel blind

And you think you maybe you'll trust him

For he's touched your perfect body with her mind

Now, Suzanne takes your hand and she leads you to the river

 

 

 

RAGS AND OLD IRON - NINA SIMONE

She's wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - HERE COMES THE SUN

And the sun pours down like honey on our lady of the harbor

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - THE LOOK OF LOVE

And she shows you where to look among the garbage and the flowers

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - CHILDREN GO WHERE I SEND YOU

There are heroes in the seaweed, there are children in the morning

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - IN LOVE IN VAIN

They are leaning out for love and they wil lean that way forever

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE - I HOLD NO GRUDGE

While Suzanne holds her mirror

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE *THATS ALL I WANT FROM YOU*

And you want to travel with her, and you want to travel blind

 

 

 

NINA SIMONE: I SING JUST TO KNOW THAT I'M ALIVE

And you know that you can trust her

 

 

 

HUMAN TOUCH | LIVE NINA SIMONE

For she's touched your perfect body with her mind
