Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the sun - A girl seating on a bench in the city center with sun going downAt first flash of Eden, we race down to the sea.
Standing there on freedom’s shore.
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun.
Can you feel it, now that Spring has come,
That it’s time to live in the scattered sun.
Waiting for the sun.
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to hear my song
Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong.
This is the strangest life I’ve ever known.
Can’t you feel it, now that Spring has come,
That it’s time to live in the scattered sun.
Waiting for the sun.
_ The Doors (Waiting for the sun) _

Back to normality

Back to normality - A man is walking by in a shadowHo baciato in bocca la morte tesoro
e adesso non posso più guardarti
e nemmeno toccarti
il furbo l’ho fatto una volta di più
delle carte che ho in mano
e lo scherzo non scherza
col gioco e col fuoco
fuori, sì viviamo fuori
ma fuori davvero
ci fa paura di andare
fuori dagli uomini
fuori dal cielo
fuori non riesco neanche
a immaginarlo vero
E’ più di una crepa
più di una bugia
più di una notte insonne
più di una malattia
in uno sbaglio solo
gli errori tutti della vita
e il prezzo è in banconota
di nostalgia infinita
fuori, sì viviamo fuori
ma fuori davvero
ci fa paura di andare
fuori dagli uomini
fuori dal cielo
fuori non riesco neanche
a immaginarlo vero
libri di poesia
alberi di Natale
figli che mancate
amici di limpide serate
di essere puro, di essere sincero
solo ritornare
ad essere normale
_ Vinicio Capossela (Fatalità, excerpt) _

I’m overcoming gravity

I'm overcoming gravity - Gravel on the lake bank…Looking in my own eyes (hey lord),
I can’t find the love I want,
Someone better slap me,
Before I start to rust,
Before I start to decompose,
Looking in my rear view mirror,
Looking in my rear view mirror,
I can make it disappear,
I can make it disappear (have no fear),
I like pleasure spiked with pain and music is my aeroplane,
It’s my aeroplane,
Songbird sweet and sour Jane and,
music is my aeroplane,
It’s my aeroplane,
pleasure spiked with pain,
that motherfuckers always spiked with pain,
Sitting in my kitchen (hey girl),
I’m turning into dust again,
My melancholy baby,
The star of mazzy must,
Push her voice inside of me,
I’m overcoming gravity,
I’m overcoming gravity,
(It’s easy when you’re sad to be,)
It’s easy when you’re sad, sad like me…
_ Red Hot Chili Peppers (Aeroplane, excerpt) _
