Who would have said yes to the wind

Who would have said yes to the windPer te che è ancora notte e già prepari il tuo caffé
che ti vesti senza più guardar lo specchio dietro te
che poi entri in chiesa e preghi piano
e intanto pensi al mondo ormai per te così lontano.
Per te che di mattina torni a casa tua perché
per strada più nessuno ha freddo e cerca più di te
per te che metti i soldi accanto a lui che dorme
e aggiungi ancora un po’ d’amore a chi non sa che farne.
Anche per te vorrei morire ed io morir non so
anche per te darei qualcosa che non ho
e così, e così, e così
io resto qui
a darle i miei pensieri,
a darle quel che ieri
avrei affidato al vento cercando di raggiungere chi…
al vento avrebbe detto sì…
-
For you while it’s still night and are already preparing your coffee
that dress yourself without looking at the mirror behind you anymore
that then go into a church and pray in silence
and in the meantime think about the world now for you so far.
For you that back home in the morning because
in the street no one has cold and is looking for you anymore
For you that put your money next to him sleeping
and add a little ‘love to who do not know what to do.
Even for you I would die and I die I don’t know
even for you I would give something I have not
and so, and so, and so
here I stay
to give her my thoughts,
to give her what yesterday
I would have given to the wind trying to reach who…
would have said yes to the wind…
_Lucio Battisti (Anche per te, excerpt)_
