Song for Adam


Though Adam was a friend of mine
I didn't know him well
He was alone into his distance
He was deep into his well
I could guess what he was laughing at
But I couldn't really tell
Now the story's told that Adam jumped
But I'm thinking that he fell

Together we went travelling
As we received the call
His destination India
And I had none at all
Well I still remember laughing
With our backs against the wall
So free of fear we never thought
That one of us might fall

I sit before my only candle
But it's so little light to find my way
Now the story unfolds before my candle
Which is shorter every hour
as it reaches for the day
And I feel just like a candle in a way
I guess I’ll get there
But I wouldn't say for sure

When we parted we were laughing still
As our goodbyes were said
And I never heard from him again
As each our lives we lead
Except for once in someone else's
Letter that I read
Until I heard the sudden word
That a friend of mine was dead

I sit before my only candle
Like a pilgrim sits beside the way
Now this journey appears before my candle
As a song that's growing fainter
the harder I play
Till I fear before I end I’ll fade away
But I guess I’ll get there
Though I wouldn't say for sure

Though Adam was a friend of mine
I didn't know him long
And when I stood myself beside him
I never thought I was as strong
Still it seems he stopped his singing
In the middle of his song
Well I’m not the one to say I know
But I’m hoping he was wrong

I’m holding out my only candle
Though it's so little light to find my way
Now this story's been laid beneath my candle
And it's shorter every hour
as it reaches for the day
Yes, I feel just like a candle in a way
I hope I get there
But I never pray

HOY DESTACAMOS
Nuevo cancionero y discografía

el 07/02/2018

Coincidiendo con el trigésimo aniversario de la publicación de su último disco y como complemento al homenaje que este 2018 le ofrece el Festival BarnaSants, CANCIONEROS publica el cancionero y la discografía de Ramon Muntaner. Con ello queremos además reivindicar su obra y rescatar del olvido unas canciones que siguen sonando modernas basadas en unos textos que —algunos de ellos lamentablemente—, siguen manteniendo toda su vigencia.

HOY EN PORTADA
Novedad editorial

por María Gracia Correa el 12/02/2018

La Tertulia de Granada se convirtió una vez más en referente de la canción de autor y de la poesía de Andalucía, el 26 de enero de 2018, con la presentación de En la raíz del silencio, un libro imprescindible que el profesor y musicólogo Fernando González Lucini ha construido a partir de la recuperación de poemas y dibujos inéditos de Antonio Mata, miembro fundador de Manifiesto Canción del Sur, fallecido en 2014, autor primordial en la historia de la canción de autor andaluza.
