Eric Benet: Sometimes I Cry

Bajo los lazos de inspiración de Marvin Gaye, Al green o Smokey Robinson, surgió Eric Benet mostrando unas condiciones idoneas para seguir el sendero de esos grandes de la música soul. Ahora -casi quince años de ese inicio de la andadura- podemos percibir el talento en sus composiciones e interpretaciones, rebosantes de feeling y buen gusto.

"Sometimes I Cry" es el video presentación de su álbum Lost In Time apunto de salir al mercado. Elegante y con una sensual voz en falsete que me ha recordado por un momento a Prince. Él es una de las bazas más importantes para el futuro cercano del rnb, algo turbio y confuso últimamente desde el punto de vista más ortodoxo, por ello confio en que cuando tengamos el resto del trabajo, éste se encuentre a la altura de su potencial.

Letra
Verse 1-
Two years since you walked away from me
Since all of our scattered dreams
Were just thrown away
I'm finally gettin back to what I used to be
Share my pain with my family
Think I'm on my way

I can sleep at night,
I don't reach for you when I wake up
But it's taken some time
I can live my life
Without praying that we could make up
I'm movin on, I'm feeling strong inside

-Chorus 1-
But sometimes I cry, babe
When I'm all alone
With this heart of mine
Sometimes I cry, babe
Although you've been gone
For a long, long time

-Verse 2-
Heard you're moving in with someone new
I hope all your dreams come true
And you'll both be happy, yeah


Been long enough for me to take a look around
I've met a girl, we've been hangin out
She's been good for me

But when we're makin love
She don't take me there like you used to
And it hurts when I lie (when I lie baby)
Help me understand how to push you out,
Forget you and let you go,
Cuz Lord knows I've tried, yeah

-Chorus 2-
But sometimes I cry, babe
Been at all that hurtin
For a long, long time (yes, I have babe)
Sometimes I cry, babe
Ain't nothin workin
For this pain of mine

-Bridge-
I'll just have to fake it
Until I can make it
There's a smile on my face, yeah
But I'm broken inside
