Steven Tyler e Nuno Bettencourt al concerto per i Nobel della Pace (video)

Il cantante degli Aerosmith e il chitarrista degli Extreme hanno stregato un pubblico colto, con due canzoni per i Nobel della Pace a Oslo.


Che Steven Tyler e Nuno Bettencourt fossero amici e fan l'uno dell'altro, lo avevamo scoperto già al concerto degli Aerosmith a Milano, lo scorso Giugno: il cantante degli Aerosmith si era visto buona parte dello show degli Extreme stando ai lati del palco e cantando "silenziosamente" le loro canzoni.

I due musicisti saranno stati contentissimi, quindi, quando sono stati invitati a portare un po' di rock and roll (acustico) alla cerimonia dei Nobel per la Pace.
Il Nobel Peace Prize Concert si è tenuto ad Oslo l'11 Dicembre, e la performance di Tyler e Bettencourt ha stregato tutti, grazie anche alle due canzoni scelte: una degli Aerosmith e una degli Extreme, una che parla dello "stato del mondo" in cui ci troviamo ("There's something wrong with the world today / I don't know what it is"), l'altra che dà un po' di speranza e che chiede che l'amore (e la pace) non siano solo parole.

Nei video qui sopra potete vedere le due esibizioni, mentre di seguito trovate il testo delle canzoni, nel caso vogliate cantare e riflettere sul contenuto...

Aerosmith, Livin' On The Edge - lyrics

There's somethin' wrong with the world today
I don't know what it is
Something's wrong with our eyes

We're seeing things in a different way
And God knows it ain't His
It sure ain't no surprise

We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge
We're livin' on the edge

There's somethin' wrong with the world today
The light bulb's gettin' dim
There's meltdown in the sky

If you can judge a wise man
By the color of his skin
Then mister you're a better man that I

We're livin' on the edge
You can't help yourself from fallin'
Livin' on the edge
You can't help yourself at all
Livin' on the edge
You can't stop yourself from fallin'
Livin' on the edge

Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
Complication - aggravation
Is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
Even if it wasn't would you still come crawlin'
Back again?
I bet you would my friend
Again & again & again & again & again

(solo)

Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion
Complication - aggravation
Is getting to you

If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin'
Even if it was would would you still come crawlin'
Back again?
I bet you would my friend
Again & again & again & again

There's something right with the world today
And everybody knows it's wrong
But we can tell 'em no or we could let it go
But I would rather be a hanging on

Livin' On the Edge
You can't help yourself from fallin'
Livin' On the Edge
You can't help yourself at all
Livin' On the Edge

Extreme, more Than Words - lyrics

Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
Cos I'd already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words

Now I've tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
Cos I'd already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words
