Dalle prime luci dell’alba,

Mi sveglio e rigiro nel letto,

Cercando ancora di quel poco calore che v’è rimasto.

L’odore della tua carne,

Il profumo dell’amore tra le fitte trame delle lenzuola,

La mia mano tra il nero dei tuoi capelli,

L’odore del caffè e la prima sigaretta accesa.

E’ una piacevole sensazione,

Rimestarmi nel letto,

Per continuare a ricercare una sottile piacevole sensazione,

che adesso, come Te, più non è.

Dietro ogni mia notte,

Dentro il suo buio,

C’è Lei,

Viva e Misteriosa,

Come l’energia che anima il mio cuore ancora di ragazzino,

C’è Lei in tutti i miei sogni,

In tutte le mie conquiste,

Nelle mie sconfitte,

Nella musica,

Nei desideri più intimi.

Tutto mi riconduce a Lei,

Come se fosse il seno della Donna che amo,

E le mani e le labbra

Fossero radici che cercano la vita e affondano nell’umida terra,

Per trovare sollievo e nutrimento,

Un ponte nel presente,

Per traghettare la mia Anima tra Passato e, forse, un Futuro.

Anybody Seen My Baby – Rolling Stones

 

“Anybody Seen My Baby”

 

She confessed her love to me
Then she vanished on the breeze
Trying to hold on to that was just impossible
She was more than beautiful
Closer to ethereal
With a kind of down to earth flavor
Close my eyes
It’s three in the afternoon
Then I realize
That she’s really gone for good
Anybody seen my baby
Anybody seen her around
Love has gone and made me blind
I’ve looked but I just can’t find
She has gotten lost in the crowd
And I was flippin’ magazines
In that place on Mercer street
When I thought I spotted her
And getting on a motor bike
Looking really lady like
Didn’t she just give me a wave?
Salty tears
It’s three in the afternoon
Has she disappeared
Has she really gone for good
Anybody seen my baby
Anybody seen her around
If I just close my eyes
I reach out and touch the prize
Anybody seen her around
Oh yeah that’s what I’m sayin’
We came to rock for Brooklyn
And Queens and Long Island
And all over the world
We came to rock for everybody like this
Anybody seen my baby (anybody, anybody seen my baby)
Anybody seen her, anybody seen her around
If I just close my eyes
I reach out, I reach out and touch the prize
Anybody seen her around
anybody seen my baby
Anybody seen her around (lost, lost and never found)
(Oh yeah) I must have called her a thousand times
Oh, sometimes I think she’s just in my imagination

Un altro tramonto

Diverso dagli altri,

Come i giorni che cadono,

Fogli privi di vita

Che son staccati dal vento, dal Tempo.

E in questi giorni andati

Mi accorgo dei segni vivi incisi nei miei occhi,

Dell’Amore perduto, dei baci non dati,

Degli abbracci che restano vivi soltanto tra i ricordi.

E allora la mia malinconia

Assomiglia all’addio del giorno,

Al saluto degli amanti l’attimo prima della partenza,

Quando l’ennesimo tramonto

Giunge e li  separa, portandoli via con se.

Even better than the real thing – U2

“Even better than the real thing”

Give me one more chance
And you’ll be satisfied
Give me two more chances
You won’t be denied
Well my heart is where it’s always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance
Let me be your lover tonight
You’re the real thing
Yeah the real thing
You’re the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Give me one last chance
And I’m gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance
To ride on the waves that you bring
You’re honey child to a swarm of bees
Gonna blow right through you like a breeze
Give me one last dance
We’ll slide down the surface of things
You’re the real thing
Yeah the real thing
You’re the real thing
Even better than the real thing
We’re free to fly the crimson sky
The sun won’t melt our wings tonight
Oh now
Here she comes
Take me higher
Take me higher
You take me higher?
You take me higher?
You’re the real thing
Yeah the real thing
You’re the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing
Even better than the real thing

Rich Woman – Alison Krauss & Robert Plant

Rich Woman”

I got a woman with plenty of money
She got the money and I got the honey
Called my baby late last night
She told me daddy everything was all right
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
I don’t have to worry about her she’s real fine
I know my baby and she’s all mine
She give me a Cadillac, a diamond ring
She told me daddy don’t you worry bout a thing
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
She got the money and I got the honey
She’s all mine and I’m so glad
She’s the best woman that I ever had
She’s all mine and I’m so glad
She’s all mine and I’m so glad
She’s all mine and I’m so glad
Ah, stop your train
Ah mama stop your train

Osservo,

Tra me e la Vita

C’è un patto,

Un concordato, un armistizio

Che detta le regole del Distacco,

Del distanziamento dall’Amore,

A ciò che c’era di buono e di non buono,

Dentro di Me,

Nell’Anima e nel Cuore,

Come s’io fossi un bicchiere di vino,

Poggiato lì,

Nel silenzio,

Su di un tavolo oramai vuoto.

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
