交わした約束


去年はびっくりするくらい「秋」を堪能できなかったので、
今年は、秋の気配を1日目から逃さなかった
そのおかげで今年は秋がびっくりするくらい長く、毎日が幸せです

一瞬一瞬を、毎日を、今だけを生きるということ
それをもう1度体験させてくれるのが子育てなのかも、とふと感じた
今を生きるということがどれだけ自分を解放し、自由にさせてくれるか
なかなか手に入る自由じゃない
長く生きるほどややこしくなるけど、back to your roots
宇宙とつながるパイプラインは子どもたちを介して提供されている

で本題はこれ
最近注目しているアーティストはジャンルで言えば様々で、
彼らの音楽を家で聴くかって言われれば必ずしもそうではないんだけど、
これはMos Defというアメリカのヒップホップのアーティスト
気になっているアーティストの1人
映画にもちょこちょこ出ているらしい

彼のナンバーで好きなUmi Saysという曲
英語も簡単なので歌詞つけときました
ボブ・マーリーがかつて、
本当はアフリカの大地に戻って、神とだけ話をしていたいんだと言っていた
生きること自体は持続力と労力のいる、終わりのないシビアな活動でもある
どこかで死ぬことに憧れを抱くのも人間だと思う
でも、それでも死なないで生きようと、
意味を見いだしたり、楽しんだりして生き続けようとするけなげな人間
生きることは仕える事、「仕事」でもある
誰にでも生まれるときに交わしたそれぞれの約束がある
それを果たそうとするアートが私は好きだ





I dont wanna write this down, [world... premiere]
I wanna tell you how I feel right now [world... premiere]
I dont wanna take no time to write this down, [world... premiere]
I wanna tell you how I feel right now, hey [world... premiere]

Tomorrow may never come
For you or me
Life is not promised
Tomorrow may never show up
For you and me
This life is not promised

I aint no perfect man
Im trying to do, the best that I can,
With what it is I have
I aint no perfect man
Im trying to do, the best that I can,
With what it is I have

Put my heart and soul into this song [yes yes]
I hope you feel me
>from where I am, to wherever you are
I mean that sincerely
Tomorrow may never come
For and me
Life is not promised
Tomorrow may never appear
You better hold this very moment very close to you [right now]
Very close to you [right now]
So close to you, so- close to you [your moment in history is right now!]
Dont be affraid, to let it shine

My umi said shine your light on the world
Shine your light for the world to see
My abi said shine your light on the world
Shine your light for the world to see
[i want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
My abi said shine your light on the world
[want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
Shine your light for the world to see
[want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
My umi said shine your light on the world
[want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
Shine your light for the world to see
[want black people to be free, to be free...]

Sometimes I get discouraged
I look around and, things are so weak
People are so weak
Sometimes,
Sometimes I feel like crying
Sometimes my heart gets heavy
Sometimes I just want to leave and fly away [fly fly fly, like a dove]
Sometimes I dont know what to do with myself [ow!]
Passion takes over me
I feel like a man
Going insane
Losing my brain
Trying to maintain
Doing my thang
Hey hey hey hey hey
Put my heart and soul into this yall
I hope you feel me
Where I am, to wherever you are [ha ha ha ha]
Sometimes I dont want to be bothered
Sometimes I just want a quiet life, with
Me and my babies, me and my lady
Sometimes I dont want to get into no war
[black people to be free, to be free...]
Sometimes I dont wanna be a soldier
Sometimes I just wanna be a man, but

Umi said shine your light on the world
Shine your light for the world to see
My abi said shine your light on the world
Shine your light for the world to see
[i want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
My dreamers(? ) said shine your light on the world
[want black people to be free, to be free, to be free]
Shine your light for the world to see
[want black people]
My elders said shine your light on the world [hey hey]
Shine your light for the world to see

I want black people to be free, to be free, to be free
All my people to be free, to be free, to be free
Oh black people to be free, to be free, to be free
Oh black people to be free, to be free, to be free

Thats all that matters to me (x7)

Black people unite and lets all get down
Gotta have what,
Gotta have that love
Peace and understanding
One god, one light
One man, one voice, one mic
Black people unite come on and do it right
Black people unite come on and do it right
Black people unite come on and get down
Gotta have what,
Love, peace and understanding
One god, one voice, one life
One man, gon shine my light
Black people unite, now hop up and do it right
Black people unite, now come on and do it right
