Gentle Giant - Free Hand, On Reflection - 1975

In my way did I use you, do you think I really abused you
On reflection now it doesn't matter:
How can you say I made you need me more than anyone else
Who can say it right now it's finished over:
It's my act, it's my calling, I explained exactly the falling
Different ways of life can never even:
Be the same when you saw me, could you always take me the
same way as I came and went I tried to remember you:
Still you stay
Tied in your way
Changing times
Watching the signs

Could you see in me what you thought about all you want me to be
On reflection why should have I changed my ways for you
All around, all around

Cry my sympathy's with you but I never lied to you all in all
it seems it's just an experience:
Placed my cards on the table told of everything I was able,

Understanding still not anything different:
Find another to lean on, start again for I should have long
gone, on reflection now it's just an experience.
Soon the pain will have ended, together never intended, as I
come and go I'll try to remember you.

Look back it's not your game, together just in name.

I'll remember the good things how can you forget all the years
that we shared in our way:
Things were changing my life, taking your place in my life and
our time drifting away:
All around all around.

      Gentle Giant foi um grupo de rock progressivo da década de 1970, cujo o estilo era definido como Baroque & Roll. Gravaram doze álbuns entre 1970 e 1980 inspirados por antigos filósofos e pela obra de François Rabelais. A proposta da banda era: "Expandir as fronteiras da música popular contemporânea correndo o risco de se tornar bem impopular." O exemplo que aqui deixo lembra o contraponto e a fuga na obra de Bach, com um texto soberbo.
