Distractions – Paul McCartney

What is this thing in life that persuades me to spend
Time away from you?
If you can answer this you can have the moon.
This is the place to be, anyway you can see
There’s a lovely view.
Why are there always so many other things to do?
Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
When I’m alone I think of you
And the life we’d lead if we could only be free
From these distractions.The postman’s at the door
While the telephone rings on the kitchen wall,
Pretend we’re not at home and they’ll disappear.
I want to be with you, tell me what I can do,
Nothing is too small
Away from all this jazz we could do anything at all.
Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head.
When I’m alone I think of you
And the things we’d do if we could only be through
With these distractions.
I’ll fond the peaceful place far a way from the noise of a busy
Day
Where we can spend our nights counting shooting stars,
Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head.
When I’m alone I think of you
And the things we’d do if we could only be through
With these distractions, like butterflies they’re
Buzzing ‘round my head, when I’m alone I think of you
And the life we’d lead if we could only be free
From these distractions.

Il mare,

Entra nei miei respiri,

Penetra come raggio di luce negli occhi,

Come un granello di sale,

Brucia dolcemente sulle labbra,

Gli strati più reconditi dell’Anima.

Lentamente mi accarezza con la brezza,

E sembra di ascoltare,

Una melodia  in lontananza,

Dona pace,

Rallenta i battiti del Cuore.

Mi siedo accanto a sassi piccoli e la sabbia,

E ascolto nel silenzio

Le sue parole più profonde,

Che graffiano,

Come la salsedine che brucia gli occhi,

Come tu che mi guardi e sorridi in silenzio,

Come le tue labbra che hanno il sapore dell’estate che sta finendo,

E mi abbandono all’abbraccio infinito delle tue maree.

Stereo Love – Edward Maya

When you’re gonna stop breaking my heart?
I don’t wanna be another one
Paying for the things I never done
Don’t let go, don’t let go to my loveCan I get to your soul?
Can you get to my thought?
Can we promise we won’t let go?
All the things that I need
All the things that you need
You can make it feel so real
Cause you can’t deny, you’ve blown my mind
When I touch your body
I feel I’m losing control
Cause you can’t deny, you’ve blown my mind
When I see you baby
I just don’t want to let goI hate to see you cry
Your smile is a beautiful lie
I hate to see you cry
My love is dying insideI can fix all those lies
Oh baby, baby I run, but I’m running to you
You won’t see me cry, I’m hiding inside
My heart is in pain but I’m smiling for youCan I get to your soul?
Can you get to my thought?
Can we promise we won’t let go?
All the things that I need
All the things that you need
You can make it feel so real
Cause you can’t deny, you’ve blown my mind
When I touch your body
I feel I’m losing control
Cause you can’t deny, you’ve blown my mind
When I see you baby
I just don’t want to let goWhen you’re gonna stop breaking my heart?
Don’t let go, don’t let go to my loveI hate to see you cry
Your smile is a beautiful lie
I hate to see you cry
My love is dying insideI hate to see you cry
My love is dying inside
I hate to see you cry
My love is dying insideI can fix all those lies
Oh baby, baby I run, but I’m running to you
You won’t see me cry, I’m hiding inside
My heart is in pain but I’m smiling for you
Oh baby I’ll try to make the things right
I need you more than air when I’m not with you
Please don’t ask me why, just kiss me this time
My only dream is about you and I
