Willy Mason Feat. KT Tunstall - We Can Be Strong

If the Ocean Gets Rough is the second album by American singer-songwriter Willy Mason, which was released in the UK on March 5, 2007.


Willy Mason (born November 21, 1984) is an American singer-songwriter.

Mason was born in White Plains, New York, the son of Jemima James and Michael Mason, both songwriters. Mason is a direct descendant of the 19th-century philosopher William James, the brother of novelist Henry James.

When Mason was five, he and his family moved from Tarrytown, New York to West Tisbury, Massachusetts, on the island of Martha's Vineyard.

He attended West Tisbury Elementary School and Martha's Vineyard Regional High School, where he participated in several local bands such as Keep Thinking, Cultivation, and Slow Leslie. He also was in the MVRHS Minnesingers and performed in musical theater productions.


Kate Victoria Tunstall (born 23 June 1975), known by her stage name KT Tunstall, is a Scottish singer-songwriter and musician. She broke into the public eye with a 2004 live solo performance of her song "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" on Later... with Jools Holland.

Born in Edinburgh to a Hong Kong-born exotic dancer, she was adopted by David and Rosemary Tunstall of St Andrews. At the age of four she started playing piano; later she learned to play other musical instruments.

She attended the Lawhead Primary and Madras College in St. Andrews, High School of Dundee and Kent School in Kent, Connecticut in the United States. She earned her BA in Drama & Music in 1996 from the Royal Holloway, University of London.

She was awarded an honorary doctorate by Royal Holloway in 2011.

Her debut album was named Eye to the Telescope - the name was inspired by her childhood experiences at her father's physics laboratory at University of St Andrews.

Lyrics

Signed myself out today
Sent a letter far away
Said baby i'll be good someday

Gonna try again tomorrow
Try again tomorrow

I couldn't take that sterile place
In those rooms i lost my face
And in the end they couldn't sell me grace

And they can't sell me tomorrow
Can't sell me tomorrow

We can be strong;...
Now i'm back on mamma's couch
Plenty of time to think about
All of the kids that went the college route

Chasing their tomorrows
Chasing their tomorrows

One by one my friends dropped out
Now i've got brothers to share my doubts
On what this business is all really about

Waiting on tomorrow
Waiting on tomorrow

We can be strong...
Signed myself out today
Sent a letter far away
Said baby come home today

I'm here and its tomorrow
I'm home and its tomorrow

We can be strong...

Testo

Mi sono firmato oggi
Inviata una lettera molto lontano
Detto bambino sarò buono un giorno

Ci riproverò domani
Riprova domani

Non potevo prendere quel posto sterile
In quelle stanze ho perso la faccia
E alla fine non potevano vendermi la grazia

E non possono vendermi domani
Non posso vendermi domani

Possiamo essere forti; ...
Ora sono tornato sul divano della mamma
Un sacco di tempo per pensare
Tutti i bambini che hanno seguito la strada del college

Inseguendo i loro domani
Inseguendo i loro domani

Uno dopo l'altro i miei amici si ritirarono
Ora ho fratelli per condividere i miei dubbi
Su cosa è veramente questo business

Aspettando domani
Aspettando domani

Possiamo essere forti ...
Mi sono firmato oggi
Inviata una lettera molto lontano
Detto bambino, torna a casa oggi

Sono qui e il suo domani
Sono a casa e il suo domani

Possiamo essere forti ...
