I’m Amazing

Inaspettatamente Peter Gabriel ha pubblicato oggi un nuovo brano, in realtà piuttosto vecchio e ispirato alla figura di Muhammad Ali. Sono sette minuti e mezzo che spaziano da strofe lente e atmosferiche a ritornelli più elettronici concludendo poi con un canto corale che sembra citare lo scomparso Muhammad.

A tal proposito PG ha dichiarato: “I wrote a song a few years back – “I’m Amazing”, which was, in part, inspired by Muhammad Ali’s life and struggles and at the time of his death, when so many people are celebrating his life and thinking about all he achieved, it seemed the right time to release it.”

(Ho scritto una canzone anni fa – I’m Amazing [sono eccezionale – ndt], che è stata, in parte, ispirata dalla vita di Muhammad Ali e dalle sue lotte così quando è morto, ora che così tante persone ne stanno celebrando la vita e riflettono riguardo a quanto è riuscito a conquistare, mi è sembrato il momento giusto per pubblicarla)

Run into the cage
But what I grew up hating
Keep on recreating
Please help me

Something’s got to change
There was something that you said
Happy times ahead
Happy times ahead

Saw the kind of blood
Like a picture’s going to shatter
Can you recognize the pictures of a bone-luck setter
Of a people, all the faces in my head that are running around
I’m trying to make connections by the circuits are down

Look at me
Look at me
Look what I can do
I’m amazing

I’m living from without and living from within
Got lightning every layer of my illuminated skin
Could swallowing a lightbulb
Transform into the sun
I can jump into the darkness
I can shine on anyone

Look at me
Look at me
Can you see what I can do
‘Cause I’m amazing

Look at me!

Look at me
Look at me
Can you see what I can do
‘Cause I’m amazing

Reaching out my hand
I’m going underwater
Sunlight filtered into shafts
I’m going underwater
With the human race
I’m going underwater, down
Underwater
Down
Underwater
Trying to put it together in my head
Feeling the weight of what you said
The weight of what you said
Happy times ahead
Happy times ahead
Happy times ahead

Look at me
Look at me
Look what I can do
‘Cause I’m amazing

Look at me!

Look at me
Look at me
Look what I can do
‘Cause I’m amazing

Cause I can!
And I will!
It’s moving in me
The spirit is free
