U2 - White As Snow

Un cantec emotionant, linistitor. Il ascult ceva mai des de cateva zile si mi s-a intamplat in cateva randuri sa il percep altfel cu fiecare ascultare, ca si pe o carte, pe care cand o citesti a doua oara o intelegi altfel. Cantecul transmite gandurile unui soldat din Afghanistan, imaginile si amintirile ce ii trec prin minte inaintea mortii. Povestea lui e povestea oricaruia dintre soldatii plecati pe front si cazuti la datorie. Sunetele sunt atent armonizate, nimic nu e strident, de parca sentimentele personajului ar fi exprimate prin muzica: linistea data de amintiri, durerea ca viata e aproape de final pentru ca incheierea sa fie ca o impacare cu soarta..."macar de-ar putea fi o inima la fel de alba ca zapada"...

U2 - White As Snow

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 every 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
