The Tallest Man On Earth - The Dreamer

Sometimes the Blues Is Just a Passing Bird is an EP by Swedish musician The Tallest Man on Earth. It was released on 6 September 2010 by Dead Oceans.

It marks one of Kristian Matsson's first incorporations of electric guitar sound, on "The Dreamer". "Like the Wheel" appears as a bonus track on his 2010 album The Wild Hunt, rewritten to include nothing but piano and vocals.


Kristian Matsson (born 30 April 1983) is a singer-songwriter from DalarnaSweden, who performs under the stage name of The Tallest Man on Earth. Matsson grew up in Leksand, and began his solo career in 2006, having previously been the lead singer of the indie band Montezumas. His music has often drawn comparisons to the music of Bob Dylan.

Since 2006, Matsson has released four full-length albums and two EPs. He records and produces these in his home, and usually records his voice and guitar together on one track. He is known both by his fans and his enemies for his charismatic stage presence.

He was previously married to Amanda Bergman, also known by the stage name Idiot Wind. Together, they wrote the music for the Swedish drama film Once a Year.

Lyrics

i'm just a dreamer but i'm hanging on
though i am nothing big to offer
i watch the birds, how they dive in then gone
it's like nothing in this world's ever still

and i'm just a shadow of your thoughts in me
but sun is setting, shadows growing
a long cast figure will turn into night
it's like nothing in this world ever sleeps
oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
and why can't that always be
tossing aside from your birches crown
just enough dark to see
how you're the light over me

and by your side, girl, where the acres grow
into the strong and stunning meadow
a cowboy stumbling in the finest field
and nothing good out there won't be old

oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
and why can't that always be
tossing aside from your birches crown
just enough dark to see
how you're the light over me

sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
and why can't that always be
tossing aside from your birches crown
just enough dark to see
how you're the light over me

Testo

Sono solo un sognatore ma proseguo avanti
perchè non sono niente di grande da offrire
guardo gli uccelli, come loro vanno in picchiata
è come niente altro in questo mondo

e io sono solo un ombra dei tuoi pensiperi in me
ma il sole scende, le ombre crescono
una grande figura diventerà notte
è come niente in questo mondo che sempre dorme
oh a volte il Blues è solo un uccello passeggero
e perchè non può sempre essere
mettendosi da parte dalla corona di betulle
Oscuro abbastanza per vedere
come tu sei la luce su di me

e dalla tua parte, ragazza, dove gli acri crescono
sul forte e stupendo prato
un cowboy inciampa sul campo più bello
e nulla di buono lì sarà vecchio

oh a volte il Blues è solo un uccello passeggero
e perchè non può sempre essere
mettendosi da parte dalla corona di betulle
Oscuro abbastanza per vedere
come tu sei la luce su di me

A volte il Blues è solo un uccello passeggero
e perchè non può sempre essere
mettendosi da parte dalla corona di betulle
Oscuro abbastanza per vedere
come tu sei la luce su di me
