Angelique Kidjo trifft Talking Heads – Born Under Punches

Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands
The hand speaks, the hand of a government man
Well I’m a tumbler born under punches, I’m so thin

All I want is to breathe
(I’m too thin)
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space, so we move in-between
(In-between it)
And keep one step ahead, of yourself

Don’t you miss it, don’t you miss it
Some of you people just about missed it
Last time to make plans
And I’m a tumbler, I’m a government man

Never seen anything like that before
Falling bodies tumble ‚cross the floor
(Well I’m a tumbler)
When you get to where you wanna be
(Thank you! Thank you!)
When you get to where you wanna be
(Well, don’t even mention it)

Oh, take a look at these hands, they’re passing in-between us
Take a look at these hands
Take a look at these hands, you don’t have to mention it
No thanks, I’m a government man

And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on

And the heat goes on
(I got time)
And the heat goes on
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on
And the heat goes on, where the hand has been
And the heat goes on and the heat goes on

I’m not a drowning man
And I’m not a burning building! I’m a tumbler
Drowning cannot hurt a man
Fire cannot hurt a man, not the government man

All I want is to breathe
(Thank you, thank you)
Won’t you breathe with me?
Find a little space so we move in-between
(I’m so thin)
And keep one step ahead of yourself
(I’m catching up with myself)

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?
(Hands of a government man)
Find a little space so we move in-between
And keep one step ahead of yourself
(Don’t you miss it! Don’t you miss it!)

All I want is to breathe
Won’t you breathe with me?

Ich bin die andere Seite von dem, was im Lichte ist! Ich bin die innere Stimme, die nicht zu überhören ist. Doch unerhört verhallt - verbannt und unerkannt... Ich bin der Grund, in dem die Wurzeln vordringen, sich verankern: In der Finsternis.
