Miguel, Candles in the Sun – Video Ufficiale e testo

Candles in the sun è il terzo singolo estratto da Kaleidoscope Dream di Miguel

Miguel

Miguel -nome completo Miguel Jontel Pimentel- è un cantautore americano e produttore. Ha firmato un contratto con la Jive Records nel 2007 e tre anni dopo è uscito il suo album di debutto, All I Want Is You. Nonostante una mancata promozione e pochissimi live, lentamente il suo nome inizia a girare nell’ambiente. Il rapporto con la casa discografica si scioglie un anno dopo e così viene ingaggiato dalla RCA Records. Il suo nuovo album, Kaleidoscope Dream, è un successo acclamato dalla critica.

E’ stato nominato ai Bet Awards nel 2011 e nel 2012 vince un premio (Best Collaboration). Ma è con “Adorn” che avviene la consacrazione ai Grammy 2013: 3 nomination per la canzone, trionfa come Best R&B Song. L’album ottiene una candidatura come Best Urban Contemporary Album. Il suo terzo singolo estratto estratto è “Candles in the Sun” così raccontato dal cantante:

“Ho voluto creare una canzone e un punto vista che indirizzasse le mie preoccupazioni della vita quotidiana come la conosco nel mondo in cui viviamo”

    Is there a God?
    Is he watching?
    Is she watching?
    Are they watching now?
    If not, what are we doing?
    Where are we going?
    What are we doing now?

    Look at all these people
    Searching for a reason,
    Searching for a piece of mind. Hey!

    They say we’re all created equal,
    That’s what they teach us,

    But that ain’t how we treat each other
    Nah that ain’t how we treat each other
    Shit, The truth is that we need each other, yeah.

    [Chorus 1:]
    Diamond in the back,
    Babies on crack,
    Kickin’ the door,
    Waving the four four
    White-collared war crime, money gets spent
    Just candles in the sun, blowing in the wind
    Sun goes down.
    Heroes often get shot
    Peace has long been forgot got
    Ohh it’ll be too late when we find out
    We’re all that we got
    Take a look around now
    Just take a look around

    Business and governments just, watch as the innocent fade.
    Mindless bureaucracy fails, hindering government aid.

    Aren’t you appalled?
    What are we doing?
    Where are we going?
    What are we doing?

    [Chorus 2:]
    Diamond in the back,
    Babies on crack,
    Kickin’ the door,
    Waving the four four
    (Oh yeah)
    White-collared war crime, money gets spent
    Candles in the sun, blowing in the wind
    (Take a look around)
    Sun goes down.
    (Look around)
    Heroes often get shot
    Peace has long been forgot got got got
    Oh will it be too late once we find out?
    We’re all that we got
    (Yeah yea)
    We’re all that we got
    (Yeah yea)
    We’re all that we got
    (ooh)

    May we all live long
    And may we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all be strong
    And we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all live long
    May we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, only light our way

    May we all live long
    And we all be brave
    And the bridges we burn, will be the bridges we burn

    We’re all that we got
    (ooh)
    We’re all that we got
    (ooh)
    We’re all that we got
    (Nah)
    Look around now
    That we’re all that we got

    (Yeah Yeah)

    Is there a God?
