Day 136: “Shattered” – Trading Yesterday

!!!ITALIAN!!!

Every song has more than just one life. During its existance, it changes face  dozens of times: starting from the first chord, first vocal line, the other instrument adding on the mix, until the recorded version. And still, the song can change from demo version to the album ones.

Today’s song, “Shattered” by  Trading Yesterday , it’s a perfect example of what just said.

From the first release on 2004  to  the album version dated 2006 a lot of changes have been made on the vocals, if possible making the song even more perfect: sweet, sad, but with a particular strenght that pervades all the songs made by this name, which is now known with the name of “Age of Information“.

The final album was released without the authorization of the label and of the artist, and only this year an official version has been produced. That’s why there’s not an official video.

And now you can enjoy “Shattered”, in its own new dress, straight from the album “More Than This“!

Shattered – Lyrics

Yesterday I died, tomorrow’s bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
The future’s open wide beyond believing
To know why hope dies
Losing what was found, a world so hollow
Suspended in a compromise
The silence of this sound is soon to follow
Somehow sundown

And finding answers
Is forgetting all of the questions we called home
Passing the graves of the unknown

As reason clouds my eyes, with splendor fading
Illusions of the sunlight
And the reflection of a lie will keep me waiting
Love gone for so long

This day’s ending is the proof of time killing all the faith I know
Knowing that faith is all I hold

And I’ve lost who I am
And I can’t understand
Why my heart is so broken
Rejecting your love
Without love gone wrong
Life
Less words
Carry on

But I know
All I know
Is that the ends beginning
Take me home to my heart
Let me go
And I will run
I will not be silenced

All this time spent in vain
Wasted years
Wasted gain
All is lost
Hope remains
And this war’s not over

There’s a light
There’s the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer

And I’ve lost who I am
And I can’t understand
Why my heart is so broken
Rejecting your love
Without love gone wrong
Life
Less words
Carry on

But I know
All I know
Is that the ends beginning

Who I am from the start
Take me home to my heart
Let me go
And I will run
I will not be silenced

All this time spent in vain
Wasted years
Wasted gain
All is lost
Hope remains
And this war’s not over

There’s a light
There’s the sun
Taking all the shattered ones
To the place we belong
And his love will conquer all
Yes his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died, tomorrows bleeding
Fall into your sunlight
