...not these songs. They are, each and every one of them, jewels of the art - and they will endure. Tom Rapp refers to jewels in the lyrics of three of them - `The jeweler', `Rocket man' and `The old man' - and his compositions are indeed jewel-like, both lyrically and melodically so far ahead of their time that it's no surprise that he never achieved commercial success.

Quem conhecer a discografia de This Mortal Coil terá reparado no extraordinário início do segundo álbum “Filigree And Shadow” de 1986.
Após um pequeno instrumental de cordas "Velvet Belly", em que na parte final surge uma voz masculina, entra a segunda canção, “The Jeweler”, interpretada por Dominic Appleton, vocalista dos Breathless.
A recriação dos This Mortal Coil é um dos momentos altos da década de 80, muito pela incrível voz de Dominic.
O original é dos Pearls Before Swine de Tom Rapp.

O blog Pet Songs tem um texto, muito bem escrito (mais uma vez) e o mp3 aqui.

Imprescindível!

The jeweler has a shop

On the corner of the boulevard

In the night, in small spectacles

He polishes old coins

He uses spit and cloth and ashes

He makes them shine with ashes

He knows the use of ashes

He worships God with ashes.

The coins are often very old

By the time they reach the jeweler

With his hands and ashes

He will try the best he can

He knows that he can only shine them

Can not repair the scratches

He knows that even new coins have scars

So he just smiles.

He knows the use of ashes

Dum da de da da dey dey

He worships God with ashes

Dum da de da de de da de dey dey.

In the darkness of the night

Both his hands will blister badly

They will often open painfully

And the blood flows from his hands

He works to take from black coin faces

Thumbprints from so many ages

He wishes he could cure the scars

When he forgets he sometimes cries.

He knows the use of ashes

Dum da de da da dey dey

He worships God with ashes

Dum da de da de de da de dey dey.

He knows (he knows the use of ashes)

He knowsHe knows (he worships God with ashes)

He knowsHe knows (he knows the use of ashes)

He knows (Dum da de dad a dey dey)

He knows (he worships God with ashes)

He knows (Dum da de dad a dey dey)

He (he knows the use of ashes)

He(He worships God with ashes)
