Cecile Corbel – The Riddle



Lyrics:

Cecile Corbel – The Riddle

I got two strong arms
Blessings of Babylon
Time to carry on and try
For sins and false alarms
So to America the brave
Wise men save

Near a tree by a river
There’s a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Aran
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There’s a wrong and a right
But he’ll never, never fight over you

I got plans for us
Nights in the scullery
And days instead of me
I only know what to discuss
Oh, for anything but light
Wise men fighting over you

It’s not me you see
Pieces of valentine
And just a song of mine
To keep from burning history
Seasons of gasoline and gold
Wise men fold

Near a tree by a river
There’s a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Aran
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There’s a wrong and a right
But he’ll never, never fight over you

I got time to kill
Sly looks in corridors
Without a plan of yours
A blackbird sings on bluebird hill
Thanks to the calling of the wild
Wise men’s child

Near a tree by a river
There’s a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Aran
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There’s a wrong and a right
But he’ll never, never fight

Near a tree by a river
There’s a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Aran
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There’s a wrong and a right
But he’ll never, never fight over you
No, he’ll never, never fight over you

    Que dire à part que cette chanson c'est MA chanson préférée tous genres confondus, c'est une tuerie ! Parmi les reprises et les remix type fakes, j'aime quasiment tout ce que je trouve. Cette reprise est très bien faite aussi, chapeau l'artiste ! Je l'ai ajoutée à ma playlist. 😍

    Cette reprise est magnifique! Je l'ai découverte il y a plus de 2 semaines  car elle passait à la radio.  J'ai tout de suite adoré!

    Wonderful!! I love the original song by Kershaw and I'm happy to see that Corbel, one of my favourite artists, made a cover 😀
