Rattlesnakes


"...Rattlesnakes, per esempio, è proprio basato su un racconto che ha per protagonista una donna di circa trent‘anni; la frase chiave, pronunciata dal padre di lei, dice “la vita è un duro e sporco gioco, c‘è un serpente nascosto sotto ogni roccia”. È da qui che nacque l‘idea di scriverci una canzone. "

( da un' intervista rilasciata da Lloyd Cole a Federico Guglielmi )

Qui una selezione di canzoni di Lloyd Cole




Jodie wears a hat although it hasn't rained for six days
She says a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie saint in on the waterfront
She reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance

She's less than sure if her heart has come to stay in San Jose
And her never-born child still haunts her
As she speeds down the freeway
As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
She's obvious despite herself

She looks like Eve Marie Saint in on the waterfront
She says all she needs is therapy, yeah
All you need is, love is all you need

Jodie never sleeps 'cause there are always needles in the hay
She says that a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

She looks like Eve Marie Saint in on the waterfront
As she reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance
Her heart, heart's like crazy paving
Upside down and back to front
She says "ooh, it's so hard to love
When love was your great disappointment."
