Saturnais

Ouço Coltrane e a memória recua no tempo até noites como esta, quando depois de cear com as famílias, um bando de adolescentes se reunia para tocar violão, planejar peças de teatro e decidir os destinos do mundo. Antes da faculdade, dos casamentos, dos filhos, das separações, das mortes, antes de marcar reencontros que não podiam ser cumpridos porque estávamos espalhados pelo mundo. Antes do Anastase ir pra Grécia, a Marcela pra Brisbane, o George pra campinas, a Analu pra Curitiba, eu pra São Paulo, o Marcus e o Marcelo pra Brasília, . Antes da internet e da telefonia celular, a gente se encontrava em noites saturnais naqueles verões dos anos 80. Passado um quarto de século, permanecemos amigos. Nos encontramos na rede.

Uma canção

Once in a lifetime
Talking Heads


You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife
You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

You may ask yourself, how do I work this?
You may ask yourself, where is that large automobile?
You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house
You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever wasSame as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water, carry the water
Remove the water from the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, into silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

Letting the days go by, into silent water
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
You may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house?
You may ask yourself, where does that highway lead to?
You may ask yourself, am I right, am I wrong?
You may say to yourself, my god, what have I done?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, into silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

Letting the days go by, into silent water
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us
Time isn't holding us, time doesn't hold you back
Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us
Time isn't holding us...
Letting the days go by, letting the days go by, letting the days go by, once in a lifetime
