The Love We Had

¿Cómo es posible que canciones tristes, se escuchen más tristes con ciertas voces?

Bueno, pues esto me pasa con The Love We Have, del disco The Soul Season Vol 2 de Joss Stone.

La versión más antigua de esta canción corresponde a un grupo de R&B llamado The Dells, que lanzó esta canción en 1972. Luego, en la década de 1990, otro grupo (también de R&B) llamado Dru Hill hizo un cover de esta canción.

Y seguramente se debe a que la letra (escrita por el jazzista Terrence Orlando Callier y Larry Wade) está llena de amor, de nostalgia, de soledad y de esperanza, y supera a todas las versiones que hagan de ella.

Para que la conozcan les dejo la interpretación de Joss Stone, que transmite la tristeza y el dolor de esta canción, con toda su fuerza.

Título: The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind)
Intérprete: Joss Stone
Album: The Soul Season Vol. 2
Autores: Terrence O. Callier / Larry Wade

Lately baby, I’ve been thinking
How good it was when you were here
And it ain’t the wine that I been drinking

For once I feel my head is clear
But early this morning, when I opened up my eyes
That old lonesome feeling took me by surprise
I guess you meant more to me than I realized
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind

And lately girl, I’ve been remembering
The good times that we used to share
My thoughts of you don’t have an ending
And memories of you are everywhere

But why should I tell you, it’s not your concern
You win some, you lose some
Well I’ve lost and I’ve learned
It’s just that I’m so lonely
With no place to turn
And here at the end, I find
Yes I do
The love we had stays on my mind

Girl, if you were nearer
If you had a mirror
Maybe you could count my tears

And if you were nearer
It would all be clearer
How I wish that you were here
How I wish that you were here
How I wish, how I wish
How I wish that you were here

And baby girl I was tired
So I laid down to dream for a little while
But lately I’ve been so, so uninspire
Without the comfort of your smile

But I’m not complaining
Cuz that’s how it goes
There’s always some h eartache
In this world I suppose

But you can’t imagine
But nobody knows
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind

Por cierto, si estos enalces si quieren escuchar la versión de The Mighty Dells o la versión de Dru Hill.
