• Watching The Wheels - John Lennon (Double Fantasy, 1980)


    Cette chanson est pour moi représentative du génie de John Lennon.
    J'y retrouve à la fois le don pour les mélodies complexes mais saisissables, ainsi que sa voix reconnaissable entre mille, et, caché dans les paroles, un humour fin et omniprésent tout autant qu'un esprit d'anticonformisme.
    Cette chanson me parle, et John est véritablement un des artistes que je préfère.


    People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
    Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
    When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
    Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

    People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
    Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
    When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
    Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

    I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
    I really love to watch them roll
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round
    I just had to let it go

    Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
    Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
    Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind
    I tell them there's no hurry
    I'm just sitting here doing time

    I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
    I really love to watch them roll
    No longer riding on the merry-go-round
    I just had to let it go
    I just had to let it go
    I just had to let it go
