Tears in Heaven - Tränen für den verstorbenen Sohn

Eric Clapton oder "Mr. Slowhand" habe ich in einem Konzert live erlebt. Zu seinen bekanntesten Liedern zählen "Cocaine", "Lay Down Sally" und "Wonderful Tonight".

Unvergessen bleibt Tears in Heaven, eine melancholische Ballade, die er nach dem Unfalltod seines vierjährigen Sohnes Conor schrieb und in der er seine Trauer zum Ausdruck bringt:


Und das ist der Text zum Lied:

Would you know my name
if I saw you in heaven?
Will it be the same
if I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong and carry on
'cause I know I don't belong
here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
if I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
if I saw you in heaven?

I'll find my way through night and day
'cause I know I just can't stay
here in heaven

Time can bring you down
time can bend your knees
time can break your heart
have your beggin' please
beggin' please

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
and I know there'll be no more
tears in heaven

Would you know my name
if I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
if I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong and carry on
'cause I know I don't belong
here in heaven
'cause I know I don't belong
here in heaven.
