A Woman 04:21
When I was young I thought she could fly, but I grew wiser while we grew older. She was beautiful and to my eyes her little smile was like the sun when I needed it. Then I grew tall, still green inside, when she told me many things I didn't really like. She was afraid and hurt by human kind and her heart couldn't discern right or wrong Even though I thought she was perfect, the only perfect person in the world now I know that she's not flawless, she's a human, finding her best way to live So she laughed and she cried, when she was younger she had dreams that she didn't achieve, She loved men and she danced, she rode a bicycle and fell down on the street. Imperfectly independent she could live her life standing on her own feet, trying to learn from the mistakes, praying to the universe for her own light. She fought lies and fought hatred, fought the dangers that were lying in her bed. She faced the punishments arising from her sins, but she never fell to her knees. Even though I thought she was perfect, the only perfect person in the world now I know that she's not flawless, she's a human finding her best way to live So she laughed and she cried, when she was younger she had dreams that she didn't achieve, She loved men and she danced, she rode a bicycle and fell down on the street. She could give birth and death, she gave a name and gave a hand to whom needed it, she felt regrets and silence, she sang melodies far from home, close to the sea. Never able to give order to her chaos she decides to dance inside it, and for all I know about this blessed world, What I learnt from her I treasure in my blood. So she laughed and she cried, when she was younger she had dreams that she didn't achieve, She loved men and she danced, she rode a bicycle and fell down on the street. She could give birth and death, she gave a name and gave a hand to whom needed it, she felt regrets and silence, she sang melodies far from home, close to the sea.

I don’t know why it happens But it happens And I just have to learn from it somehow As you did always tell me Everything comes from a flower and will make a seed So when the clouds will gather I will drink the rain And when the sun will brighten my face I won’t complain But when sometimes I fall now I find you inside me Hold me through the air I inhale Only for a minute or two I find my safe place in you Hold me and I will find you there Just as you would do it before Surround me to cure this sore I don't know what comes after But it will So why should I spend my time thinking of it? Just as when I suspended all my feelings And you tried to lift me up from the ground Now when the sky gets blurry I can see your face And when the weight of worry hits i feel you in the wind You're in every leaf brushing my face In every gentle move of the wind In the atoms filling up my breath I hear you I feel you

Quello che mi piace di più sono i capelli al vento Ma questo soltanto non spiega quello che sento C’è di più che nelle favole in queste nuvole Quando ogni movimento rimane in questo momento E dovunque vada gia’ ci sono, anche se mi perdo Che mi guardo dentro e mi guardo intorno È semplice ma non è facile Che come per questa vita non c’è Un manuale d’uso per la bicicletta Ho smesso di andare di fretta Per imparare Il bello della strada che ho È che c’è il sole in faccia ma anche la pioggia, L’odore che lascia E l’unico modo per trovare l’equilibrio è Sempre avanzare senza troppo timore Quindi mi concedo il permesso di cadere spesso Così tento invece di stare ferma Che come per questa vita non c’è Un manuale d’uso per la bicicletta Ho smesso di andare di fretta È semplice ma non è facile

Harbour 03:36
The tide’s beginning to load And I am carried afloat All of this feels rather new I’m here, I’m turning you The tide’s beginning to rise The current bursting through my eyes For a moment be the boat to ease the lumps in my throat Rock my pain towards the crests Don’t let me stray away In the harbour of your chest I will be safe The waves are stirring my soul Am I weaker than the flow? Please be my anchor to keep me here now that nothing feels real Rock my pain towards the crests Don’t let me stray away In the harbour of your chest I will be safe Please be the harbour to keep me here

Te La Ridi 02:34
Scommetto che te la ridi Senza fardelli Ora ch’è tutto chiaro Tu ridi ancor di più E noi che ancor guardiamo su o giù o di lato Sperando di sentire una risata o un flauto Sappiamo che stai bene Forse anche ‘un po’ meglio Senza tutti i dolori Che la vita ci dà Ma noi un po’ piangiamo ancora perché manchi Sì certo, andiamo avanti, ma ci volevi tu Che canti una canzone che poi cantiamo tutti Col cuore sereno come sai fare tu La lallallala lalalalalalala la lalalalala lala lala lala Quanno se rivedremo, tutti più leggeri Pensa le risate che ce faremo insieme Cantanno na canzone che poi cantamo tutti Cor core sereno come lo sai fa tu E intanto io un po’ piango Perché un po’ mi manchi Si, sempre vado avanti Ma ci volevi tu

Non so perché succede Ma succede E rimane solo da imparare Come dicevi sempre Tutto viene da un fiore e produce il seme Così se le nuvole piangono io le berrò Quando il sole illumina mi scalderò A volte però cado E ti cerco qui dentro Tienimi nel vapore del mio respiro Solo per un minuto E sono sicuro Tienimi e ti trovo nel mio petto Come facevi prima Avvolgimi questa ferita Non so cosa c’è dopo Ma lo saprò Perché dovrei pensarci adesso? Tutta questa paura Innocente di non essere mai abbastanza Ora se il cielo si appanna vedo il tuo viso quando l’ansia affonda sei nel vento intorno a me E’ percheé quando cado Io ti cerco qui dentro Sei in ogni foglia sul mio palmo Sei in tutte le danze del vento Sei negli atomi del mio respiro Ti sento Ti sento
