Ziggy Stardust, 50 anos [5/11]

Foi a 16 de junho de 1972 que surgiu The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, álbum em que David Bowie inventava a sua personagem mais mítica, redefinindo a carreira e, mais do que isso, abrindo um capítulo do rock consagrado às possibilidades de permanente discussão da identidade artística, pública e privada. São 11 canções, aqui metodicamente recordadas — esta é a quinta, It Ain't Easy.

When you climb to the top
Of the mountain
Look out over the sea

Think about
The places perhaps
Where a young man could be

Then you jump back down
To the rooftops
Look out over the town

Think about
All of the strange things
Circulating 'round

It ain't easy, it ain't easy
It ain't easy to get to Heaven
When you're going down

Well, all the people
Have got their problems
That ain't nothing new

With the help of the good Lord
We can all pull on through
We can all pull on through

Get there in the end
Sometimes it'll take you right up
And sometimes down again
It ain't easy, it ain't easy

Keep me satisfied

I've got the love
Of a hoochie koochie woman
She calling from inside

She's a calling from inside
Trying to get to you
All the woman really wants
You can give her something too

It ain't easy, it ain't easy
