City And Colour - What Makes A Man

Album

Bring Me Your Love is the second album by City and Colour, released on February 12, 2008 through Dine Alone Records. According to Billboard, the album debuted at #11 of the Top Heatseekers chart in March 2008.

The songs on this album are more folk-oriented with occasional harmonicabassdrumsbanjo and mandolin as opposed to the previous releases which only consisted of acoustic guitar and piano.

On February 8, the complete album was made available for listening on City and Colour's official MySpace profile.

The music video for the first single, "Waiting...", was released on January 24, 2008 and was listed for 9 weeks on the Canadian Hot 100.

In October, 2008, Dine Alone Records announced a special 2-disc limited edition of Bring Me Your Love to be released on December 2, 2008. Only 6000 copies were made available. In Canada, when the record label put up the album on pre-sale on November 20, 2008, so many fans tried to pre-order it that they crashed the store's website.

Gordon Downie, of The Tragically Hip makes an appearance on the album, lending his vocals to the third verse on the second single, "Sleeping Sickness" which was listed for 9 weeks on the Canadian Hot 100. The video for "Sleeping Sickness", directed by Montreal-based director Vincent Morisset, was released on June 27, 2008, with an interactive version being available on the group's official website.

The album is named after a short story by Charles Bukowski. It is also a line sung in the closing track, "As Much as I Ever Could".

Bring Me Your Love was released on vinyl in Canada in 2011


Bring Me Your Love è il secondo album in studio di City and Colour, progetto del cantautore canadese Dallas Green. Il disco è stato pubblicato nel 2008.


Artist

Dallas Michael John Albert Green (born September 29, 1980) is a Canadian musician and singer-songwriter who records under the alias City and Colour. He is also known for his contributions as a singer, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter for the post-hardcore band Alexisonfire.

In 2005, he debuted his first full-length album, Sometimes, which achieved platinum certification in 2006. City and Colour began performing in small intimate venues between Alexisonfire tours. The name City and Colour comes from his own name: Dallas, a city, and Green, a colour.

His reasoning for the name was that he felt uneasy "putting the album out under the name Dallas Green".


Dallas Michael John Albert Green (St. Catharines29 settembre 1980) è un cantautore canadese.


City and Colour è il progetto musicale solista di Dallas Green, cantante e chitarrista degli Alexisonfire. I primi tre album in studio, pubblicati tra il 2005 e il 2011, hanno avuto un buon riscontro di vendite in Canada, ricevendo un disco di platino caduno.

Lyrics

I can hear my train comin'
It's a lonesome and distant cry
I can hear my train comin'
Now I'm runnin' for my life
What makes a man walk away from his mind?
I think I know, I think I might know

I can feel the wind blowin'
It's sending shivers down my spine
I can feel the wind blowin'
It shakes the trees and the power lines
What makes a man spend his whole life in disguise?
I think I know, I think I might know

[CHORUS]
(What makes a man)
I think I might know
(What makes an man)
I think I might know,
(What makes a man)
ohoh

I can see the sun settin'
It's casting shadows on the sea
I can see the sun, it's setting
It's getting colder, starting to freeze
What makes a man want to break a heart with ease?
I think I know, I think I might know

[CHORUS]

Well I can hear my train comin'
Looks like time is not on my side
Well I can hear my train comin'
I'm still runnin' for my life
What makes a man pray, when he's about to die?
I think I know, I think I might know

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS]

Testo

Posso sentire il mio treno arrivare
È un pianto solitario e distante
Posso sentire il mio treno arrivare
Ora sto correndo per la mia vita
Cosa fa allontanare un uomo dalla sua mente?
Penso di saperlo, penso che potrei saperlo

Sento il vento soffiare
Mi fa venire i brividi lungo la schiena
Sento il vento soffiare
Scuote gli alberi e le linee elettriche
Cosa fa passare un uomo tutta la sua vita sotto mentite spoglie?
Penso di saperlo, penso che potrei saperlo

[RIT.]
(Cosa rende un uomo)
Penso che potrei saperlo
(Cosa rende un uomo)
Penso che potrei sapere,
(Cosa rende un uomo)
Oh, oh

Posso vedere il sole che tramonta
Sta proiettando ombre sul mare
Posso vedere il sole, sta tramontando
Sta diventando più freddo, iniziando a congelare
Cosa rende un uomo che vuole rompere un cuore con facilità?
Penso di saperlo, penso che potrei saperlo

[RIT.]

Beh, posso sentire il mio treno arrivare
Sembra che il tempo non sia dalla mia parte
Beh, posso sentire il mio treno arrivare
Sto ancora correndo per la mia vita
Cosa fa pregare un uomo quando sta per morire?
Penso di saperlo, penso che potrei saperlo

[RIT.]

[RIT.]
