I've Seen It All

Cette chanson réunit deux de mes artistes préférés, Björk et Thom Yorke (chanteur de Radiohead). Ca aurait dû être culte, exceptionnel, immanquable. Presque...  


I've seen it all
I have seen the trees
I have seen the willow leaves
Dancing in the breeze 

I've seen a man killed
By his best friend,
And lives that were over
Before they were spent. 

I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see 

You haven't seen elephants
Kings or Peru 

I'm happy to say
I had better to do 

What about China?
Have you seen the Great Wall? 

All walls are great
If the roof doesn't fall
And the man you will marry
The home you will share 

To be honest
I really don't care 

 

You've never been
To Niagara Falls 

I have seen water
It's water, that's all 

The Eiffel Tower
The Empire State 

My pulse was as high
On my very first date 

And your grandson's hand
As he plays with your hair 

To be honest
I really don't care 

 

I've seen it all
I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness
In one little spark
I've seen what I chose
And I've seen what I need
And that is enough
To want more would be greed
I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see 

You've seen it all
And all you have seen
You can always review on
Your own little screen
The light and the dark
The big and the small
Just keep in mind
You need no more at all 

You've seen what you were
And know what you'll be
You've seen it all
There is no more to see
