Tonight is what it means to be young

Lo acabo de descubrir en el blog de Athair. Es de la película Streets of Fire, del 84. Me he quedado pillada en la letra. Y he querido ponerla. Por una noche hace tres semanas en la que volví a sentirme como si tuviera 16 años… y fue muy bonito.

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel on the beach
And the perfect waves are starting to come
His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold
And his touch has got the power to stun

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel in the forest
Enchanted by the edge of a lake
His body’s flowing in the jewels alive
And the earth below is starting to shake

But I don’t see any angels in the city
I don’t hear any holy choirs sing
And if I can’t get an angel
I can still get a boy
And a boy’d be the next best thing
The next best thing to an angel
A boy’d be the next best thing

I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy in a castle
And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs
He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes
And the thunder of a drum in his ears

I’ve got a dream ’bout a boy on a star
Lookin’ down upon the rim of the world
He’s there all alone and dreamin’ of someone like me
I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
No matter what it seems
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone

Ah…

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

EDITO. Esta canción me ha recordado a un grupo rockero femenino al que adoraba en mi adolescencia… y del cual sólo tuve un disco. El grupo era Heart. El disco, Brigade. Quizá recordaréis el famoso “All I wanna do is make love to you”… No es mi preferida. Este otro tema me encanta, y expresa muchas cosas… de otros momentos recientes.

It’s too late to turn back
When the green lights flash
Too late to turn around
When the love goes down

Your fire my fate
This woman won’t wait
So love beam your laser light
Get ready gonna take this flight

You’re so wild
(you’re wild and willing)
So wild (your spirit’s free)
You’re such a wild wild child
Oh baby go wild with me

Two hearts one mind
Baby you’re my kind
You’re too hot you’re too much
You’ve got that personal touch

Push button play thing
Make my back door ring
Fight fire with a little fire baby
You oughta know you make this
Little girl sing

You’re so wild
(you’re wild and willing)
So wild (your spirit’s free)
You’re such a wild wild child
Oh baby go wild with me

Do your little shake baby
Rattle and roll
Ring my bell baby do my soul
Don’t let the grass grow under my feet
Bang my drum baby feel my beat
You’re so wild

You’re so wild
(you’re wild and willing)
So wild (your spirit’s free)
You’re such a wild wild child
Oh baby go wild with me

You’re so wild
(you’re wild and willing)
So wild (your spirit’s free)
You’re such a wild wild child
Oh baby go wild with me
