"Jackie" par Sinéad O'Connor et par Placebo

Publié le par Coralie Berhault

Jackie est une très belle chanson de Sinéad O'Connor, étonnante artiste irlandaise, extraite de son album The Lion and the Cobra, sorti en 1987. C'est dans l'album Sleeping with Ghosts (Bonus CD), sorti en 2003, que Placebo réinterprète cette chanson, en y ajoutant bien sûr sa griffe toujours si délicieusement particulière...

Jackie - Sinéad O'Connor - 1987


Jackie par Placebo - 2003


Jackie left on a cold, dark night telling me he'd be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years leaving me all alone
And I've been dead for twenty years
I've been washing the sand with my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie oh

I remember the day the young man came
He said, your Jackie's gone we got lost in the rain
And I ran to the beach and laid me down
You're all wrong, I said and they stared at the sand
That man knows the sea like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time laughing at you

And I've been waiting all this time for my man to come
Take his hand on mine and lead me away to unseen shores
I've been washing the sand with my salty tears
Searching the shore for these long years
And I'll walk the seas forever more

Till I find my Jackie oh
Jackie oh, Jackie oh...
