Guilty of loving you

Is it a sin, Is it a crime
Loving you, dear, like I do?
If it’s a crime then I’m guilty,
Guilty of loving you.
Maybe I’m wrong, dreaming of you
Dreaming the lonely night thru,
If it’s a crime then I’m guilty,
Guilty of dreaming of you.
What can I do, What can I say,
After I’ve taken the blame?
You say you’re thru,
You’ll go your way
But I’ll always feel just the same.
Maybe I’m right, maybe I’m wrong,
Loving you, dear, like I do,
If it’s a crime then I’m guilty,
Guilty of loving you.
_ Richard Whiting and Kahn and Akst [Guilty] _

Dream no. 147

Beyond the end of this world
It looks like the title of a movie, of a song
I remember when I was fooling myself
I thought I was free and travelled
And I wrote postcards
From the cities, from the deserts
I sent them to friends, to relatives
To you that I would have had close
Beyond the end of this world
Now that I don’t travel anymore
I don’t need a passport or visa
Only the luxury of being able to sleep
Dreaming maybe
Unbridgeable distances
Beyond the end of this world
And then, one night, I dreamt
I was dressed appropriately
One last journey
The rocket, like that of Georges Méliès, towards the moon
The earth from up here is beautiful, without borders
Beyond the end of this world

Oltre la fine di questo mondo
Sembra il titolo di un film, di una canzone
Ricordo quando m’ingannavo
Pensavo di essere libero e viaggiavo
E scrivevo cartoline
Dalle città, dai deserti
Le spedivo agli amici, ai parenti
A te che avrei avuto aver vicino
Oltre la fine di questo mondo
Ora che non viaggio più
Non ho bisogno di passaporto e visti
Solo il lusso di riuscire a dormire
Sognare forse
Distanze incolmabili
Oltre la fine di questo mondo
E poi, una notte, ho sognato
Ero vestito in maniera adatta
Un ultimo viaggio
Il razzo, come quello di Georges Méliès, verso la luna
La Terra da quassù è bellissima, senza confini
Oltre la fine di questo mondo
_ Hugh S. Graves _
