Mujeres rockeras

Inicio hoy este apartado de mujeres rockeras a las que he mantenido con los años en mi playlist.

Lesley Roy es una mujer que se inició hace unos 10 años el mundo de la música, aunque casi siempre como compositora.

Allá por el 2008 alguien la convenció para que sacara su propio disco, “Unbeautiful”, que no está mal, pero del que solo conservo esta canción como interesante, “Unbeautiful”. Me encanta esa voz rasgada.

Unbeautiful no tiene una traducción como tal en castellano. Lo más cercano sería feo/fea, pero si nos vamos a la letra de la canción:

“It was you and me against the world
And you promised me forever more
Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
‘Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful”

Aquí se ve que el significado real sería más bien algo como “no apto/a”.

“Unbeautiful”

Don’t hang up. Can’t we talk?
So confused, it’s like I’m lost
What went wrong? What made you go?
Don’t pretend you don’t know
This is me – I’m unchangeable
When did we fall apart?
Or did you lie from the start
When you said it’s only you?
I was blind, such a fool
Thinking we were unbreakable

It was you and me against the world
And you promised me forevermore
Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
‘Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

I’ve been told what’s done is done
To let it go and carry on
And deep inside, I know that’s true
I’m stuck in time, stuck on you
We were still untouchable

It was you and me against the world
And you promised me forevermore
Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
‘Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, ‘cause I’m only dreaming
Get out, get out, get out, get out, get out of my head now
Because we’re much better altogether
Can’t let go

It was you and me against the world
And you promised me forevermore
Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
‘Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful
It was you and me against the world
And you promised me forevermore
Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
‘Cause I gotta know what made me unbeautiful
Made me unbeautiful
