Door Anique – 

Vandaag heb ik voor jullie een artikel waarin ik een liedje waar ik momenteel groot fan van ben: Hold back the river van James Bay. Lees snel verder als je wilt weten waarom ik juist dat liedje zo mooi en fijn vind!


Ik ben vooral fan van de akoestische versie, ik luister het echt non-stop. Ik zal proberen uit te leggen wat ik zo mooi vind aan dit liedje!

Dit nummer sprak me meteen aan, het gitaarspel is fijn en de stem van James Bay is ook zeker niet verkeerd!
Toen ben ik wat beter naar de tekst gaan kijken, en kwam ik erachter wat voor prachtig liedje dit is!

Het begint al met het eerste couplet:

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between

Ik vind dit zo mooi! Voor degene onder ons die wat minder in Engels zijn, het betekent zoiets als
Probeerde je dicht bij me te houden,
maar het leven kwam er tussen.

En dan het refrein, die vind ik ook zo mooi.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Wat ik er mooi aan vind? Het gedeelte ‘Let me look in your eyes so I can stop for a minute and see where you hide.’
Zo mooi, ik denk dat we allemaal wel weten wat James Bay hiermee bedoelt, en we eindelijk weten hoe we het onder woorden moeten brengen.


Lonely water, lonely water, won’t you let us wander
Let us hold each other


Ik geloof dat ik zo wel duidelijk genoeg heb verwoord waarom ik dit zo’n supermooi lied vind!
Ode aan James Bay, voor zijn mooie muziek en prachtige songteksten.

Wat vind jij van Hold Back The River van James Bay?
