Precious Illusions

Llámenme romántico si quieren, pero siempre he pensado que aunque las formas hayan cambiado, los sentimientos y las emociones que vivimos tienen todo en común con las que experimentaron nuestros ancestros. Las leyendas y los mitos tienen más de verdad de la que usualmente admitimos y tal vez sea por eso que nos siguen atrayendo a pesar del paso del tiempo.
          Una de las canciones que mejor expresan esta sensación es esta viejita de Alanis. Ojo al video.




"Precious Illusions"
Alanis Morissette


You'll rescue me, right?
In the exact same way they never did..
I'll be happy, right?
When your healing powers kick in

You'll complete me, right?
Then my life can finally begin
I'll be worthy, right?
Only when you realize the gem I am?

But this won't work now the way it once did
And I won't keep it up even though I would love to
Once I know who I'm not then I'll know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends

This ring will help me yet as will you knight in shining armor
This pill will help me yet as will these boys gone through like water

But this won't work as well as the way it once did
Cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
And though I know who I'm not I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was a kid
And parting with them is like parting with a childhood best friend

I've spent so long firmly looking outside me
I've spent so much time living in survival mode

This won't work now the way it once did
Cuz I want to deside between servival and bliss
Now I know who I'm not
I don't I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends


These precious illusions in my head did not let me down
When I was a kid
And parting with them is like parting with childhood best friends
