Black - Swingtime Lyrics




Too many souls are lost,
So many dreams lie broken.
Will you try to help them
Chase the night away,
Turn on the booming silver day.
We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime,
Make the moment suit the time,
We make the rescue fit the crime.
And feel each passing year
Absorb the well of tears.
They shoot horses, don't they?
So we dance and sway
Into the pulsing, silver grey.
We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime,
Make the moment suit the time,
We make the rescue fit the crime.
So many people fail,
So many hearts are broken.
We come to live with pain,
We leave our arms wide open.
We do it in swing time.
Too many fights are thrown,
We count the cost of it growing.
Will you try to stop them,
Roll away the night,
Break out the champagne, hit the lights.
We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime,
Make the moment suit the time,
We make the rescue fit the crime.

We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime,
Make the moment suit the time,
We make the rescue fit the crime.
We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime,
Make the moment suit the time,
We make the rescue fit the crime.
We do it in swingtime,
We do it in swingtime,
We don't count the skinny seconds
Passing by or wonder why.
We do it in swingtime.

Black Swingtime Comments
  1. La noche de la criatura

    Black, el cantante conocido como Colín Vearncombe nos dejó por siempre pero su música siempre estará con nosotros.
    Esta canción, Swingtime corresponde a su cuarto álbum titulado “Are we having fun yet?”, algo así como.... aún nos estamos divirtiendo?.
    Un trabajo que mostraba su desencanto con la incomprensión que le produjo el negociar con una gran discográfica que no entendía al artista. Es uno de sus mejores trabajos en una larga carrera que nos dejó grandes canciones... pero que no se vió recompensada con reconocimiento justo como tuviera Bryan Ferry por poner un ejemplo.

    Gracias por tu música Colín.

    Por cierto, pocos recuerdan que llegó a cantar una canción con Duncan Dhu en el álbum Autobiografía, una obra cumbre de la música española.

    Too many souls are lost
    So many dreams lie broken
    Will you try to help them
    Chase the night away, turn on the booming silver day

    We do it in swingtime
    We don’t count the skinny seconds passing by or wonder why
    We do it in swingtime
    Make the moment suit the time we make the rescue – fit the crime

    And feel each passing year
    Absorb the well of tears
    They shoot horses, don’t they?
    So we dance and sway into the pulsing, silver grey

    We do it in swingtime
    We don’t count the skinny seconds passing by or wonder why
    We do it in swingtime
    Make the moment suit the time we make the rescue – fit the crime

    So many people fail
    So many hearts are broken
    We come to live with pain
    We leave our arms wide open

    Too many fights are thrown
    We count the cost of it growing
    Will you try to stop them
    Roll away the night, break out the champagne, hit the lights

    We do it in swingtime
    We don’t count the skinny seconds passing by or wonder why
    We do it in swingtime
    Make the moment suit the time we make the rescue – fit the crime
