Paula Cole “I don’t wanna wait” (Dawson’s Creek theme)

Los que como yo hayan visto la serie Dawson’s Creek (Dawson Crece), recordarán esta canción, que junto a un gran argumento nos mantuvo pegados al sofá algunos años.


Casi me tuve que pelear (en sentido figurado) para poder ver el estreno de la serie, adelantándome antes que los demás para coger sitio en el ocio del hogar 6 (hasta allí me tuve que ir), pero tuve premio y pude ver ese primer episodio que me incitó a ver los demás.

Un par de años después vi en el centro comercial el disco de la banda sonora a precio reducido y me lo compré. Lo primero que hice fue escuchar esta canción una y otra vez.

Una de esas series que no se olvidan.

Paula Cole “I don’t wanna wait”

So open up your morning light,
and say a little prayer for I.
You know that if we are to stay alive.
Then see the peace in every eye.

She had two babies. One was six months, one was three
in the war of ’44.
Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging
when she thought it was god calling her.
Oh would her son grow to know his father?

I don’t want to to wait for our lives to be over,
i want to know right now what will it be.
I don’t want to wait for our lives to be over,
will it be yes or will it be sorry?

He showed up all wet on the rainy front step.
Wearing shrapnel in his skin.
And the war he saw lives inside him still,
it’s so hard to be gentle and warm.
The years pass by and now he has granddaughters

You look at me from across the room
you’re wearing your anguish again
believe me i know the feeling
it sucks you into the jaws of anger.
So breathe a little more deeply my love
all we have is this very moment
and i don’t want to do what his father,
and his father, and his father did,
i want to be here now.
