Moby: One Time We Lived


Como en la sobrecogedora Natural Blues, en One Time We Lived Moby vuelve a afrontar ese oscuro asunto del tiempo y la fragilidad y contingencia de nuestra existencia: Una vez vivimos como si el tiempo nunca nos fuera a abandonar, tuvimos lujos y fracasos, no podíamos ver el fin; no había un final en el horizonte. El tiempo nos ha hecho derrumbarnos, trayendo oscuridad a la luz. Recuerdo la forma que mirabas. El sol se ha puesto. Las luces se han apagado. Recuerdo la luz en tus ojos, ¿lo recuerdas? ¿No era eso lo que queríamos?, ¿No era eso lo que teníamos?, ¿Sabemos lo que necesitamos, ahora que se ha ido...? Una vez vivimos como si el tiempo no se fuese a acabar y ahora se rompe.
El vídeo ha sido dirigido por Mark Pellington; puedes encontrar One Time We Lived en el último disco de Moby, Wait For Me.
As in his shocking Natural Blues, in One Time We Lived Moby moby sings again to the time and that delicate issue of our existence's fragility and eventuality:
One time we lived Like the time would never leave. One time we had Luxuries and grief, We couldn't see an end, There was no end in sight, The time has... The time has pulled us down Bringing darkness to the light. I remember the way you looked, The sun has set,The lights went down. I remember the light in your eyes, You remember at all? Isn't that what we wanted? Isn’t that what we had? Do we know what we need? Now that is gone! One time we lived Like the time would never end, And now it brakes, Will live us alone again While the water is cold . See just what I lost And dive into the night.
The video has been directed by Mark Pellington; One Time We Lived is featured in Wait For Me, the latest Moby album.
