10-07-2001: "List versus Eshuijs"

De ene onmiskenbaar vakvrouw, geaffecteerde grande dame met sterallures, de ander zichzelf en innemend gebleven. Durft bij Simek gisteravond als mens van vlees en bloed te zeggen: 'misschien ben ik ook niet zo slim', en: 'ik zou desnoods poetsvrouw worden om een paar uur te kunnen blijven zingen'.
Even later, al dan niet toevallig, in de nachtdienst van de AVRO, draait de domste kip die ik ken toevallig het nummer God is asleep.

The morning paper is staring at my face
The headlines still the same
I guess my feelings changed

I see a picture of a war a child in pain
Questions in his eyes
But no one to explain

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

A woman is screaming at the burning sun
Promises were made
But the food supplies won't come

And a young man is burning candles in a church
Death is in his blood
But his prayers are not heard

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

And all the preachers keep their silence
No miracle today
The prince of darkness lies in wait
To fade us all away
He has closed his eyes
And we all wonder why... why

'Cause God is asleep
Leaving this world to our trust
God is asleep
And he has no time for us

Margriet Eshuijs Lead vocal & rainmaker
Music and lyrics Maarten Peters
