Dieser Tage erscheint Eternal Return, das fünfte Album der australischen Singer/Songwriterin SARAH BLASKO. Exklusiv für Popmonitor hast sie ihre neuen Songs kommentiert…
Opening song, stating my case. I am ready to reveal myself, to be open. I’m not afraid to show my true self.
I WANNA BE YOUR MAN
It can be translated to mean „I want to be viewed as equal“. It can be tough as a woman in a man’s world.
BETTER WITH YOU
„It’s like a new adventure with you, my hope’s alive!“. Life feels fresh and exciting with a new love.
I’D BE LOST
„Finally I’ve found someone to call my own, what would I do without you now I’m home? I’d long for you!“… It’s hard to contemplate life without someone that has altered your life for the better.
MAYBE THIS TIME
Inspired by the song of the same name from ‚Cabaret‘. „Maybe this time I’ll be lucky, maybe this time he’ll stay. Maybe this time, for the first time, love won’t hurry away“.
„Nothing should feel complicated beneath this southern sky. It should be our inspiration, a sign that you and I will live forever“. We can live beyond what we dream.
A love so true and wonderful, it feels like time is endless.
„My only one, I’m in luck. I’m gonna give you everything“. A nod to Paul McCartney, a hero of mine, when I sing „my love“ in the verses.
SAY WHAT YOU WANT
„There’ll always be a place to rest your head“. Good friends can say whatever they need to and be understood.
Based on the biblical passage (though I am not religious!)… „If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal”.
