uma ida ao baú das memórias - Iris (Goo Goo Dolls)


1998. Vinte anos, portanto.

Brad Siberling pega num dos melhores filmes, considero-o de culto, de Wim Wenders - As Asas do Desejo -  e transforma-o numa versão patética, xaroposa e fortemente comercial que dá pelo nome do Cidade dos Anjos.
O canastrão do Nicolas Cage mais valia ter ficado em casa e Meg Ryan... enfim.
Johnny Depp chegou a ser contactado para ficar com o papel do Cage.


De todo o filme apenas uma coisa fica de fora do lamaçal que a Cidade dos Anjos é: a sua banda sonora. Dela recordo um tema que oiço com um prazer tremendo: os Goo Goo Dolls a tocarem Iris.

Da letra há um verso (refrão) extraordinário que o guitarrista e vocalista da banda canta:

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am





And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
