Shady Gate

When I was young, the mom next door
would have tea at our house
and she said her heart was broke
and she told me that life was based
in faith in the Evermore.
But me, I was always trying to find a way
to get a dime and go outside and play.
It was pretty weird, my childhood years,
especially with the transference
of those dreaded adult fears.
And it is just today
as I feel my pent-up baby tears
that I remember a song the moms would sing,
we'd sing along:
 
"If you go through that Shady Gate,
have someone near who is for you,
someone who will not mind a wait
as you go slow through Shady Gate."
 
He left my mom when I was ten.
She said she didn't give a damn,
that they'd never amount to anything.
And they woke me up one night
in the middle of an awful fight
and I heard him yell, "What about my needs?"
and her hiss back,
"Why don't you wake up all the neighbours too?
But please leave me be.
Another kid would finish me."
And in the morning while I ate my cereal, he left.
I didn't look, so I didn't see.
And she got a better job in the new department store.
And me, I had to rush right home from school
and feed the kids, they didn't ask about him much.
 
But I asked her once about Shady Gate.
It was late one night
and we were hanging out the laundry.
And she said that Shady Gate
is when sweet time won't wait,
it's like when a choice gets made, like a deck been laid
and maybe the sun will shine or maybe it won't at all,
but whatever is coming for you, you get to have it all.
And I wanted to ask her then
exactly what he'd meant by 'needs,'
but we had to rush inside,
the winter made her fingers split and bleed.
 
And he knocked upon the door before my next birthday.
And my mom looked real upset
and she sent us out to play.
And when we came back in,
it looked like she'd been crying hard.
And him, he tried to hug us then and he said he loved us all.
He said, "Anything you want, all you have to do is say."
And my mind raced to the brand new pair of jeans
I'd seen at school that day.
But you know, that night when we slept,
the monsters didn't come.
I dreamt we sang this song out loud,
only this time with a drum:
 
"If you go through that Shady Gate,
have someone near who is for you,
someone who will not mind a wait
as you go slow through Shady Gate."
 
I like the way you held your head
and how you muttered right out loud the things you said.
You were so serious.
I didn't believe at first,
you saying there was something you had to know
and still some place you had to go.
"Well, wash your face," my good friend tells me,
"and clean your house in troubled times."
I must admit, it helps an awful lot
to go on loving what you love.
You see, I've even trained my mind,
I'm not afraid to look behind.
It's a cool night falling
with the night birds calling.
I dare not wonder where you'll be.
But it's times like this I wish I had a line to Mother Love
or even just another word
for Eternity.

Puerta Sombreada

Cuando yo era niño la mama de la casa de a lado*
tomaba el té en nuestra casa
y decía que su corazón estaba roto
y me dijo que la vida estaba basada
en la fe del Por Siempre.
Pero yo siempre trataba de encontrar el modo
de conseguir unas monedas y salir y jugar.
Fueron muy raros mis años de infancia,
especialmente con la transferencia
de esos temibles miedos de adulto.
Y es recién hoy
mientras siento las lagrimas reprimidas de mi bebe
que recuerdo una canción que las mamas cantaban,
solíamos cantar juntos...
 
"Si vas a través de la Puerta Sombreada
Ten cerca a alguien que esté ahí por ti *
Alguien a quien no le importe esperar
Mientras vas lentamente a través de la puerta sombreada"
 
Él dejo a mi mama cuando yo tenia diez.
Ella decía que no le importaba un carajo,
que ellos nunca lograron nada
y me despertaron una noche
en medio de una pelea horrible
y escuche a él gritar '¿Que hay de mis necesidades?'
y a ella responder siseando
"¿Por que no despiertas a todos los vecinos también?
pero por favor solo déjame en paz.
Otro hijo sería mi fin"
Y en la mañana mientras yo comía mi cereal él se fue.
Nunca lo mire detenidamente así que nunca me percate.
Y ella consiguió un mejor trabajo en la nueva tienda departamental, Y yo, yo tuve que regresar rápido de la escuela a la casa
y alimentar los niños, ellos no preguntaron mucho por él.
 
Pero yo le pregunté una vez sobre 'Puerta Sombreada'.
Era tarde una noche
mientras estábamos colgando la ropa.
Y dijo que Puerta Sombreada
era cuando el dulce tiempo no esperará,
es como cuando una elección es hecha, como una baraja es echada
y tal vez el sol brillara o tal vez no lo hará en absoluto
pero lo que sea que venga por ti sera todo para ti.
Y quise preguntarle entonces
exactamente que quería decir él con "necesidades"
pero tuvimos que meternos rápido,
el invierno hizo que sus dedos se agrietaran y sangraran.
 
Y él tocó a mi puerta antes de mi siguiente cumpleaños
y mi mama lucía realmente alterada
y nos mandó a jugar afuera.
Y cuando volvimos a entrar
parecía que ella había estado llorando mucho.
Y el trato de abrazarnos y dijo que nos amaba.
Él dijo. ¨Lo que sea que quieran solo tienen que decirlo"
Y por mi mente pasó el par de pantalones nuevos
Que vi en la escuela ese día,
Pero sabes, esa noche al dormirnos,
los monstruos no vinieron.
Y soñé que cantábamos esta canción en voz alta,
pero esta vez con un tambor...
 
"Si vas a través de la Puerta Sombreada
Ten cerca a alguien que esté ahí por ti
Alguien a quien no le importe esperar
Mientras vas lentamente a través de la puerta sombreada"
 
...Me gusta el modo que sostuviste tu cabeza
y como murmuraste en voz alta las cosas que dijiste.
Estabas muy seria.
Al principio no te creí
al decir que había algo que tenías que conocer
y también un lugar al que tenías que ir.
´´Bueno, lava tu cara´´ me dice un buen amigo
´´y limpia tu casa en tiempos turbulentos´´.
Debo admitir que ayuda muchísimo
ir amando lo que amas.
Mira, he entrenado mi mente,
No tengo miedo de mirar atrás.
Esta cayendo una noche fría
con las aves nocturnas llamando.
Y no me atrevo a preguntarme donde estarás.
Pero es en momentos como este que desearía tener una linea
con Madre Amor
o incluso solo otra palabra
para Eternidad.
 
Mulțumesc!

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that the original lyrics have been updated, so please review your translation and update it accordingly. A line or two has been added and the words on some lines have changed, as well as the formatting.

Regarding the line "a deck been laid," this refers to playing cards in a card game, so another way to say it would be something like "the [deck of] cards has been dealt".

Thanks for updating your translation!

Thank you. I updated it.

Regarding the 'deck' line, that's how first I understood it, but was not sure, thank you.
