Green Day – Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

with one comment

La canzone, scritta da Billie Joe Armstrong già nel 1994, esorta a cogliere il momenti più belli della propria vita e di inciderli nella memoria per ricordarli per sempre, come dice la frase del ritornello: “It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right, I hope you had the time of your life” (“È qualcosa di imprevedibile, ma alla fine è giusto, spero che tu ti sia divertito”).

Il carattere retrospettivo l’ha resa molto popolare negli Stati Uniti, dove viene riproposta sovente in occasione di cerimonie, addii, anniversari, matrimoni e lauree. Diffuso è anche l’uso televisivo del brano, che fu trasmesso pure come sigla dell’ultima puntata della serie televisiva E.R. Medici in prima linea. (Wikipedia)

Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

So make the best of this test
and don’t ask why.

It’s not a question
but a lesson learned in time.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs
and still frames in your mind.

Hang it on a shelf
In good health and good time.

Tattoos of memories
and dead skin on trial.

For what it’s worth,
it was worth all the while.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

(music break)

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.
