Musiktexter – att tänka berättelser i ett mindre format

Jag gillar det lilla formatet. Att berätta en historia på mycket begränsat område, som till exempel poesi och musiktexter ofta innebär. Att tvingas vaska essensen ur det man verkligen vill säga. Det är förmodligen det som också gör mig till en bra copywriter. Här får du möjlighet att lyssna till en historia i ett lite mindre format, när Tess sjunger “My Café”.

My café

(I’m gonna tell you about my café)
 
I’m going to tell you about a place
Where no one really knows me
And I don’t need to hide my face
A place where time stands still
And I get hold of new breath
 
In here you find old antique tables
And a great floor made of stone
Made by hand a long time ago
Like a chess in white and russet
Or a big jigsaw puzzle
 
This is not just a café, it’s much more like a home
With the very personal touch of Sue and Jerome
 
I just sit here with my cup of coffee
And sometimes a small cigar
I fantasize about the others
I know where they all do come from
And I know where they all will go
 
This is not just a café, it’s much more like a home
With the very personal touch of Sue and Jerome
 
I won’t be more precise about where you can find me
Cause here I get my new strength and here I make my stories
 
This is not just a café, it’s much more like a home
With the very personal touch of Sue and Jerome
