Track Name: A Woman
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.
Track Name: I Don't Know Why It Happens
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
Track Name: Manuale d'Uso per la Bicicletta
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
Track Name: Harbour
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
Track Name: Te La Ridi
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
Track Name: Non So Perché Succede
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
