River in the rain – Alison Krauss

River in The Rain

River in the rain
Sometimes at night you look like a long white train
Winding your way away somewhere
River I love you don’t you care
If you’re on the run
Winding some place just tryin’ to find the sun
Whether the sunshine whether the rain
River I love you just the same
But sometimes in a time of trouble
When you’re out of hand and your muddy bubbles
Roll across my floor
Carryin’ away the things I treasure
Hell there ain’t ain’t no way to measure
Why I love you more than I did the day before
River in the rain
Sometimes at night you look like a long white train
Winding your way away from me
River I’ve never seen the sea
But sometimes in a time of trouble
When you’re out of hand and your muddy bubbles
Roll across my floor
Carryin’ away the things I treasure
Hell there ain’t ain’t no way to measure
Why I love you more than I did the day before
River in the rain
Sometimes at night you look like a long white train
Winding your way away from me
River I’ve never seen the sea

In questi giorni,

Ho camminato tanto,

Ho attraversato i miei pensieri,

Come se potessi davvero esser libero di andar ovunque volessi.

E nei miei viaggi,

Osservavo quelli che s’erano chiusi,

Tra i loro pensieri,

Persi dentro se stessi.

E ho provato a sentirli,

I loro pensieri,

Mentre mi aggiravo per le strade piene di fantasmi.

Li vedevo camminare, parlare, gesticolare,

Sentivo quasi le loro voci, confondersi nel traffico,

I negozi con le serrande chiuse, le strade con le pozze d’acqua,

E camminavo tra fantasmi, pioggia e vento,

E l’unico grido che sentivo

Era un’eco,

 Parlava da solo anche il silenzio.

Paper Airplane – Alison Krauss

 

Paper Airplane

I’ve put it all behind me
Nothin’ left to do or doubt
Some may say
But every silver linin’
Always seems to have a cloud
That comes my way
Anticipated pleasure
Or unexpected pain
No choice I feel
Love is hard to measure
Hidden in the rain
That’s why you’ll find me
Here all alone and still wonderin’ why
Waitin’ inside for the cold to get colder
And here where it’s clear that I’ve wasted my time
Hopin’ to fly ‘cause it’s almost over now
People come together
People go their own way
Love conquers few
And I’ll do whatever
I’ll say what I need to say
Just not for you
How many days should I smile with a frown
‘Cause you’re not around with the sun on your shoulders?
And how many nights must I wake up alone
And know in my soul that it’s almost over now?
Love is like a paper airplane
Flyin’ in the folded dent
Ridin’ high, dippin’ low
But innocence is fair game
I’m hopin’ I can hold it in
Our love will die, I know
