Hayley Williams: Dead Horse – videoklip a teljes Petals For Armor album megjelenéséhez

2020. május 9., 13:13

A 31 éves amerikai Paramore-frontlány Hayley Williams a 15 számos Petals For Armor szólóalbumát januártól kezdve részekben tette közzé: a Simmer /Leave It Alone / Cinnamon kliptrilógia meg a Creepin’ és Sudden Desire című dalok képezték a februári I-es számú EP-t, ahogy az áprilisi II-es EP-re is öt felvétel került Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris, Over Yet, My FriendWhy We Ever és Dead Horse címmel – a tegnapi albummegjelenéssel pedig az utolsó öt számot is megkaptuk, és estére a lemez negyedik hivatalos klipje is megérkezett.

Hayley 14 éves kora énekelt az emo/pop-punk Paramore élén, de a színes new wave-es irányba mozduló legutóbbi 2017-es After Laughter album koncertkörútja idején már óriási válságban volt: egy évtizednyi kapcsolat után éppen vált férjétől (a New Found Glory-szólógitáros Chad Gilberttől), negyvenegynéhány kilóra fogyott, kimaradt a menstruációs ciklusa, szorongás és depresszió gyötörte. A turné befejezése után a terápiás folyamat és a gyógyulás közben születő dalaiból egy sötét témái ellenére is egy szuper poplemez állt össze – az első szólóalbuma.

Az énekesnő a számok több mint felét a Paramore turnébasszistájával, Joey Howarddal írta, míg a zenekar gitárosa, Taylor York a lemez fő producere és féltucat dal társszerzője lett – az album most bemutatott utolsó blokkjában pedig már az együttes másik alaptagja, a dobos Zac Farro is szerepet kapott: a nyolcvanas évek hangzásaiban mozgó szexi számsor (Pure Love, Taken, Sugar On The Rim) után a gyógyulást és önbizalmat sugárzó Watch Me While I Bloom és Crystal Clear című záródalokban már ő is játszik, és ő rendezte Dead Horse klipjét is.

A videóban Hayley Williams szembenéz tükörképeivel, a különféle hajszíneivel és a zenekar hőskorában hordott bakancsával is leszámol, és végre megbékél egy évtizeddel korábbi önmagával. „A Dead Horse erőt sugároz vissza saját magam fiatalabb, gyengébb verziójának. Úgy érzem, mindezt ki kellett mondanom ahhoz, hogy megtestesíthessem az a nőt, aki reményeim szerint leszek. . . Ettől a daltól olyan érzésem lett, mintha kihúztam volna egy nagyon mélyen lévő szálkát.

a lemez egyszerre közzétett III-as számú blokkjának, az utolsó öt dalnak a szövege:

Pure Love (Hayley Williams / Joey Howard)

The opposite
The opposite of love is fear
I’m still trying to get
Used to how the former feels
‘Cause it feels so new
You think you know me
Wait ’till I open up to you

If I want pure love
Must stop acting so tough
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, sentimental)
If I want your love
Ooh, got to open up
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, sentimental)

A deeper way
A deeper way to understand
To understand the line between
Who you are and who I am, baby
‘Cause to let you in (I want your love, I want your love now)
Is true compromise (I want your love, I want your love now)
Not just the friction of our skin

If I want pure love
Must stop acting so tough
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, sentimental)
If I want your love
Ooh, got to open up
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, experimental)

I guess, I guess (I guess, I guess)
I could, I guess (I could, I guess)
Guess I oughta to clean up these bloody fists if it’s alright
And yes, I guess (I guess, I guess)
It’s for the best (It’s for the best)
Guess you really got to call your own bluff if you want pure love
(If I want pure love)

If I want pure love
Must stop acting so tough
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, sentimental)
If I want your love
Ooh, got to open up
(I give a little, you give a little, we get a little, sentimental)

If I want your love
(If I want your love)
(I want your love, I want your love
I want your love, I want your love now)
(I want your love, I want your love, I want your love, I want your love now)
(I give a little, you give a little, we give a little, sentimental)
And if I want your love
(If I want your love)
(I want your love, I want your love
I want your love, I want your love now)
(I give a little, you give a little, we give a little, sentimental)


Taken
(Hayley Williams / Joey Howard / Steph Marziano)

My feet won’t touch the ground beneath me
I’m flying but I’m not afraid to fall
I wear my pretty dress with big-a– sneakers
But we don’t gotta go nowhere at all

If anybody asks, yeah
I’m taken
If anybody wants to know
He is too

It’s easy to see how people stop believing
‘Cause everyone I know’s got a broken heart
And though I’m still picking up my pieces
He makes me wanna give it another shot

If anybody asks, yeah
I’m taken
If anybody wants to know
He is too

Would I do it all again?
Oh yeah, in a second
Might’ve taken 30 years
But I was always on my way to him

If anybody asks, yeah
I’m taken
If anybody wants to know
He is too


Sugar On The Rim 
(Hayley Williams / Taylor York)

Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim

Do you taste old shame
When you lick my wounds?
‘Cause I feel redeemed in spite of you
Had a life in hiding but a storm kept coming in
Could you be the silver lining like sugar on the rim?

You took me by
You took me by
You took me by
Surprise
You took me by
You took me by
You took me by
Surprise

Never felt this sensation
Kiss to every scar
Eclipse my expectation
Shock to my heart
Sugar on the-
Sugar on the-
Sugar
Sugar
On the rim
On the rim

I love to play with my shadows
In and out of the glow
I’m not afraid of the dark side
Just tell me things I don’t know
Maybe we just had to feel it
So we know the difference
When we tell our glory story
We’ll feel sweetness on our lips

You took me by
You took me by
You took me by
Surprise

Never felt this sensation
Kiss to every scar
Eclipse my expectation
Shock to my heart
Never felt this sensation (Sensation)
Kiss to every scar (Scar)
Eclipse my expectation
Shock to my heart

Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Sugar on the rim
Bitter if you walk away
Mm, sweeter if you stay
Bitter if you ever walk away
‘Cause it just gets sweeter by the day
Bitter if you walk away (Sugar on the rim)
Mm, sweeter if you stay
Bitter if you ever walk away (Walk away)
‘Cause it just gets sweeter by the day

Never felt this sensation
Kiss to every scar
Eclipse my expectation
Shock to my heart (Sugar on the rim)
Never felt this sensation (Sensation)
Kiss to every scar (Scar)
Eclipse my expectation
Shock to my heart
Sugar on the-
Sugar on the-
Sugar
Sugar
On the rim
On the rim


Watch Me While I Bloom
 (Hayley Williams / Daniel James / Taylor York)

How lucky I feel
To be in my body again
How lovely I feel
Not to have to pretend
Shocking to feel
A positive charge
Innocuous thrill
Big invisible spark (Hmm)

You wanna look inside of me?
And just watch me bloom
You only got one side of me
Here’s something new, I
I’m alive in spite of me
And I’m on my move
So come and look inside of me
Watch me while I bloom
I wanna look inside of me
And just watch me bloom
You only got one side of me
Here’s something new, I
I’m alive in spite of me
And I’m on my move
So come and look inside of me
Watch me while I bloom, I

If you feel like you’re never gonna reach the sky
Till you pull up your roots, leave your dirt behind
Baby you got a lot of s— to learn

You wanna look inside of me?
And just watch me bloom
You only got one side of me
Here’s something new, I
I’m alive in spite of me
And I’m on my move
So come and look inside of me
Watch me while I bloom
I wanna look inside of me
And just watch me bloom
You only got one side of me
Here’s something new, I
I’m alive in spite of me
And I’m on my move
So come and look inside of me
Watch me while I bloom, I

If you feel like you’re never gonna reach the sky
Till you pull up your roots, leave your dirt behind
Ooh, got a lot to learn
Got a lot, got a lot, got a lot
You got a lot to learn
Got a lot, got a lot, got a lot

You wanna look inside of me?
And just watch me bloom
You only got one side of me
Here’s something new, I

I’m alive in spite of me
Watch me while I bloom, yeah
So come and look inside of me

Crystal Clear  (Hayley Williams / Taylor York)

Mmm, I don’t wanna shut you out
I don’t wanna rush around, or slow down
This time I wanna stay right here
I wanna make it crystal clear
That I won’t give in to the fear

Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear

I remember standing on the edge
Closing my eyes
Counting to three, I
Jump in with the rush in my head
Only to find, the water was concrete
And now you’re pumpin’ air to my lungs
This don’t feel anything like sea can
In fact no matter how deep I go
Into you it looks like the water is crystal clear

Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear

Here we go
Gonna risk it again
Let’s hope it’s the last time
We don’t know
How this could end
Let’s hope it won’t have to (Hmm)
Won’t have to (Hmm)

Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
I won’t give in to the fear
Crystal clear
Won’t give into the fear
It’s a feeling
I’m still right here
It’s me
