Dream no. 156

Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed you were born in the summer
When the sun never sets
With a beautiful rainbow in your mother’s eyes
While fast and light clouds flying high
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed that I would hold you in the palm of my hand
That you would soon be my little princess
And I would have been your impossible hero
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed that I would see you take your first steps
On this earth, in this wonderfully difficult life
That we would go running on the edge of the cliff
Below us the sea, as wide as my love for you
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed that I would show you my photos in black and white
That we would listen again
to that third Led Zeppelin album together
with the cover you always liked to play with
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed that one day I would have to let you go
In search of yourself, to discover yourself
And I would have been able to hide my fears but maybe not my tears
And then I would have been proud of this great little woman
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed you would come back on a day or another
I would recognize you from afar
Then you would have told me about your entire universe
And so, under a starry sky you would have held my hand until the end
Early this morning I dreamt of you
I dreamed the best dream of my life

Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che saresti nata in estate
Quando il sole non tramonta mai
Con uno splendido arcobaleno negli occhi di tua madre
Mentre le nubi veloci e leggere passavano alte
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che ti avrei tenuta nel palmo di una mano
Che saresti divenuta presto la mia piccola principessa
Ed io sarei stato il tuo impossibile eroe
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che ti avrei visto muovere i primi passi
Su questa terra, in questa vita meravigliosamente difficile
Che saremmo andati a correre sul limite della scogliera
Sotto di noi il mare immenso come il mio amore per te
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che ti avrei fatto vedere le mie foto in bianco e nero
Che avremmo ascoltato insieme ancora
quel terzo disco dei Led Zeppelin
con la copertina con cui ti piaceva giocare sempre
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che un giorno ti avrei dovuta lasciare andare
In cerca di te, alla scoperta di te
E avrei saputo nascondere le mie paure ma forse non le lacrime
E poi sarei stato orgoglioso di questa piccola grande donna
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato che saresti tornata un giorno o l’altro
Ti avrei riconosciuta da lontano
Poi mi avresti parlato di tutto il tuo universo
E così, sotto ad cielo stellato, mi avresti tenuto la mano fino alla fine
Questa mattina presto ti ho sognata.
Ho sognato il sogno più bello della mia vita

Transmission

Radio, live transmission
Radio, live transmission
Listen to the silence, let it ring on
Eyes, dark grey lenses frightened of the sun
We would have a fine time living in the night
Left to blind destruction, waiting for our sight
We would go on as though nothing was wrong
Hide from these days, we remained all alone
Staying in the same place, just staying out the time
Touching from a distance, further all the time
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Well I could call out when the going gets tough
The things that we’ve learnt are no longer enough
No language, just sound, that’s all we need know
To synchronise love to the beat of the show
And we could dance
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio
Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, to the radio

The looking glass

The young man stepped into the Hall of Mirrors
Where he discovered a reflection of himself
Even the greatest Stars
Discover themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Discover themselves in the looking glass
Sometimes, he saw his real face
And sometimes, a stranger at his place
Even the greatest Stars
Find their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Find their face in the looking glass
He fell in love with the image of himself
And suddenly, the picture was distorted
Even the greatest Stars
Dislike themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Dislike themselves in the looking glass
He made up the person he wanted to be
And changed into a new personality
Even the greatest Stars
Change themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Change themselves in the looking glass
The artist is living in the mirror
With the echoes of himself
Even the greatest Stars
Live their lives in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Live their lives in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Fix their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Fix their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Live their lives in the looking glass
Even the greatest Stars
Live their lives in the looking glass
