Lyrics

When the Clouds Will Gather I Will Drink the Rain

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

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 

 

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 

 

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

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

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 la la la la

 

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

We Are Like Coloured Moths Towards The Sunlight

Surrounded by misty bubbles
Ready to burst
but not quite ready yet

Breathless on suspended ropes
Ready to cross
But not quite ready yet
Not quite ready yet

Cause isn’t it scary when you’re alone in the crowd
and it looks like nobody’s listening to a word you say
cause they’re too busy withering away
and isn’t it not nice when their eyes are bags of ice
and it looks like nobody really cares about what you do
and you feel like the moon
alone in the cold and blue

Looking towards the horizon
Ready to run
Is it the right time yet?

In equilibrium on the highest wall
There are two sides
It’s time to try again
It’s time to try again

But isn’t it scary when they’re staring at your scars
and there’s not really much about it that you can do
cause they’re just part of you
And isn’t it not nice when their lies are cause of blight
And nobody really gives a fuck about what they should call truth
And you feel like the moon
Far and misunderstood

But don’t you know, there’s heat under the snow?
Say it now, however it may sound.

And if you don’t understand cause you can’t see with their eyes
Get closer to the wound and try to heal the bruise
And if you don’t understand cause you can’t see what they’re like
Be just like the moon that shines outside the room
Be just like the moon, share the light given to you
Be just like the moon, illuminate the gloom

But don’t you know, there’s heat under the snow?
Say it now, however it may sound.
But don’t you know, you can divert the flow?
Sing it loud, and make it happen now.

All the beauty that we used to be
It’s over, it’s over
Burying flames of our eternity
We’re under the burden
Of our little insecurities,
We’re like pollen in the wind
Looking for a flower to die on
Wavering in discontent

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We’re tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

Little clouds of joy that we would breathe
Were what made us blunder
Running hand in hand and carelessly
On our hope we stumbled
Wearing out our sweetest souvenirs
Thrown like petals in the stream
Festival of new lives to plunge in
In which you’re a distant dream

Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
I’m lighter, I’m lighter…

I would have rested peacefully
Until the breeze would call me forth
While snow is falling on this grief
I’m walking to my own bright sun
So why should I be looking back at you, now?

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We’re tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

I’m lighter, I’m lighter…

​I should be at my piano writing songs
That’s what I better do
But I need to work to eat
Nobody’s paying my bills

People don’t buy my CDs
They listen to all music for free
Though they enjoy it
They don’t want to pay a fee

But how can I make more If I don’t have bread to eat
How can I ignore my primary needs?

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

I reckon I’m quite good at this
Would you pardon my modesty?
I have studied for years
As you’ve done for your degree

But why don’t I deserve any coin for my deeds
Have you ever heard that they don’t grow on trees

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

Yes I’m tired, after this twelve hour shift
Yes I’m tired of a job that doesn’t fit
Yes I’m tired of complaining about this
Yes I’m tired of people not giving a shit
Yes I’m tired of all this competition
I’m tired subject to this position
I’m tired with no recognition
I’m tired of feeling shit

And if you want more know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

Raindrops tick on the window,
This day is sleepwalking off
Clear rivers on the sidewalks
Carrying little precious cobblestones

So we beat on,
We are like little boats against the current
Hither and yon
We’re getting soaked, soaked to the skin

And all we feel is this ardent openness
And all we need is the consent
To do everything we can before it is too dark
To do everything we want,
Just not so fast

‘cause it is a little fast

Reflections of this skyline
bravely spur inhibitions
These clouds seem to be waiting
for us to dive into the breeze
So we fly off, we are like coloured moths towards the sunlight
Can we move on without the fire burning our scales?

And all we feel is this ardent openness
And all we need is the consent
To do everything we can before it is too dark
To do everything we want
Just not so fast
‘cause it is a little fast

Take me into another land
I’m drowning in this tidal mental head
When I’m looking too far away
I just can’t see what is right here
I keep stumbling along the way

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

So I keep going round and round
I wonder where I’ve lost my crown
I need to rest upon my throne
I’m tired of following rainbows
Through the way I’ve broken all my bones

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

Now it’s time to open eyes
To this reality that I am in
Now it’s time to be the dream I have
It’s time to put me into effect

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Now I know it’s time to fight,
Guess I have to move right now

Qu’est-ce qu’il y a dans la tête des nuages
Qui donne vertige à la neige
Pas un jeu d’enfants, ce combat de compas,
Ma flèche part mais je reste en place

J’ai cessé de tout craindre
Je me laisse couler caressé par le poids de mes mots
Un naufragé sous ma peau
Les courants berçant mes pensées
Ainsi, j’ai perdu mes paroles,
Dans cet océan
Je nage parmi mes rêves.

C’est quoi ce vent qui caresse mes tempes
Qui me fait sortir de ma cage
Il arrive souvent que je prie dans mon temple
Pour que je devienne orage

Je cesse de tout attendre
Ma voix nage, fait des vagues, un volcan en dansant, elle s’envole
C’est mon désir que je chante
Quand j’ai compris que j’ai pas tout dit
Et mon cri poursuit l’appel du vide
La seul manière de décrocher mes ailes
Ainsi je vis le reste de ma vie
Tel une rivière qui danse dans l’infini.

Je danse, dans l’infini.

​​If I stop for a while
Nothing changes outside
Would you notice the difference
Between what I was yesterday and what I’m now?

Sometimes I feel like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the streets
Oh, oh, oh

I picked up a cotton thread in an empty corridor
When I tried to change its shape
I knew that its essence would stay the same

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

I’m toasting a marshmallow
It’s so sweet and I’m so callow
I wish I could change my flavour
Without changing myself, without being someone else

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Oh, oh, oh

I swam in your blue eyes and now I’m drowning
Ryan, oh Ryan
I thought we were together but I’m lonely
Ryan, oh Ryan

I might have maybe idealised
and thought that I would never ever leave you
I might have missed relevant signs,
will I not ever see you again?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I like walking without direction
But I’m tired, I’m tired
And I thought you’d consider this affection
Well I am, oh I am…

It’s been sunny this afternoon
but I’m still a bit under the weather
It would be nice under the moon
To hold your hand and take you where I am

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

Ryan, walk next to me
Ryan, didn’t you see
Fire burning the leaves
Fire around you and me?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I’m dry, oh, I’m dry
I’m drained by this fake fire
Ryan, oh Ryan
Should I call you once just once again?
I just can’t get you out of my head
Would you please reply to my text… bitch

Why do I keep falling like a dickhead
Fantasising on a smile and knowing nothing else

And I would surely hit a tree cause I see nothing else but thee
I would meander in the streets till I have your fucking hand on me

But I should know this has no shit to do with you
I’m just used to fucking my head up when I’m living in autarchic solitude
And all the efforts I have made to attain some grace for me would vanish soon
I’m screwed cause I fixed my mind on you

What do I know about what’s inside your face
And chest and belt and underwear and in your head your hair?
Only one week after I first heard your name
Beautiful name, a shame it’s not my name, your name

I would be stung by a millions bees
If I could taste your sweet honey
I would drown deep into the sea
Cause probably I would forget to breathe

But I should know this has no shit to do with you
I’m just used to fucking my head up when I’m living in autarchic solitude
And all the efforts I have made to attain some grace for me would vanish soon
Whether with or without you
If I win or if I lose
If I get a kiss I’m too
Slap me please cause I’m a fool

Little people walking in the streets
Little people walking endlessly
They don’t have time to breathe
They don’t have time to breathe

Little people living under clouds
Little people lost in their own crowd
They forgot how to dream
They forgot how to dream

Do they still know what they came here for?

As they run fast
The time don’t last
Under all the blood they pour
They stay poor
With money in their pockets
But with no joy

Little people wearing golden clothes
Little people withering in smoke
They don’t know what is real
They don’t know what is real

And do they know what this life is for?

But as they run fast
The time don’t last
Under all the blood they pour
They stay poor
With money in their pockets
But with no joy

Where is the happiness they were looking for?
Where is the hope they lost among the lies they’re told?
Where is the happiness you were looking for?
Where is the hope you’ve lost?
The present will unfold

As you walk past
Open your arms
Dancing with the rain that pours
Open doors
To find the light in your chest
Illuminate

We’re the only people left in the room
Let’s get out and drink the light of the moon
And remember we’re made of stars

Would you tell me why I don’t understand
Why we crave so much the warmth of a hand
To hold us in the silent nights

And why it is so hard to explain
Why we all strive to reach success
In this life that’ll come to an end

We’re fools
Worrying too much about it
Confused
By woolgatherings and poses

Clouds of dust are falling off from the roof
Through the cracks on the wall I see dew
Dripping down and drying out

Does everyone feel lonely like this
Like there’s nothing that could ever fulfil
Our need to escape this pain

Will there ever be one time
When we will feel complete inside
Without greed and anger and lies

We’re fools
Worrying too much about it
Confused
By woolgatherings and poses

We’ll go back to the Apeiron so why worry?
We won’t keep anything we own, so why force it?
We’ll be back maybe on this earth so let’s tend it.
Our future will be what we sow so let’s plant it

I’ve been told  it’s not the right sentiment
But I know we’re allowed difference
And to the puzzlement
I’ll reply with honesty

That every time I tell you you shouldn’t worry about me
That I don’t mind this state
I never lie
And I wouldn’t want to say I’m sorry for my kind of peace </span

Looking for some glimpses of deliverance
I have found a mirror of myself saying that
The story I am living
Is no one else’s

So every time you think you want to feel sorry for me
Look, I don’t mind the ache
Whatever the plight
I wouldn’t stop loving the moments I get to live in

I don’t complain about the weather
I cannot change what has been
I want in every bit of present
To feel I’m complete
Can’t follow aimlessly
My eyes and hands are free
To make my colour bleed
I want to be true to me

What I know is I don’t want to have regrets
When the time will come for me to call an end
So I won’t live a life that was not meant for me

Le stelle de lu cielu nun so tutte
C’ammanca quella della mezzanotte
C’ammanca la più bella
E poi so tutte

Abbaia un cane e pizzica la strina
Lu pecuraru lassa la muntagne
Dormi bellezza mea
Bona fortuna

Chissà po’ ch’è successo quella notte
Che lu core è scoppiato pe le scosse
Mo io te cerco quanno fa sera
E sei tu la stella

Mo io te cerco quanno fa sera
E sei tu la stella

Tidal Mental Head

Take me into another land
I’m drowning in this tidal mental head
When I’m looking too far away
I just can’t see what is right here
I keep stumbling along the way

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

So I keep going round and round
I wonder where I’ve lost my crown
I need to rest upon my throne
I’m tired of following rainbows
Through the way I’ve broken all my bones

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

Now it’s time to open eyes
To this reality that I am in
Now it’s time to be the dream I have
It’s time to put me into effect

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Now I know it’s time to fight,
Guess I have to move right now

​​If I stop for a while
Nothing changes outside
Would you notice the difference
Between what I was yesterday and what I’m now?

Sometimes I feel like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited

Oh, oh, oh

I picked up a cotton thread in an empty corridor
When I tried to change its shape

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Oh, oh, oh

This feeling of uncertainty
Seems to fill up everything
Gonna expand till there’s no air to breathe

I’ve been going solo for so long
I’m walking alone and it’s so cold

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

This sense of misunderstanding
Makes me unable to talk with myself
And maybe that’s the worst thing that I’ve done

I’m almost faded and can’t see the light
And so tired, I’m unable to fight

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

I’m running, I’m fighting just to keep myself alive
I’m running, just running trying to reach something someone somehow
I’m running, I’m yelling just to let someone hear me
I’m crying while I’m smiling ’cause I just want to be free now

I’ve been getting nowhere for too long

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong int me and now I’m scared by everything
Don’t know how to get away

Risia, you are so sweet, oh, I love you so much
Risia, you are so sweet, when you blink your eyes
Risia, you are so sweet, when you mispronounce the words you say
Risia, you are so sweet, would you be my friend?

Hug me, oh, hug me
Cuddle me and caress me
Make me smile, psychoanalyse me
Do it, and I’ll do it for you in return

Risia, you are so sweet, when you try to sing but don’t succeed
I love it when you grin and the way you feel free
Oh, you are so sweet, even when you drive me mad
’cause you are so sweet, can I be your friend?

Hug me, oh, hug me
Cuddle me and caress me
Make me smile, psychoanalyse me
Do it, and I’ll do it for you in return

Will you try to understand me?
Relieve me and make me happy?
If you need me to help thee
Be sure that I’ll be there to save your ass

Now I realise my past is not here
Even though I lived it, even though I saw it.
I’m asking myself what I’ve done wrong
I’m wondering what I can do to erase it

Now I feel so cold looking outside
Because I’ve tried the best I could
But it seems useless

I’ve been waiting for so long and now I’m ready
To change my lot ’cause I’ve noticed, I’ve noticed
I need more, I need more, I need more

Do you feel the same? Are you happy today?
I see you so far but I’d want you right here
The fear all around is beating you down
Oh… what can I do to save you?

But sometimes my rage comes out
’cause you’ve left me here
And I am alone now
But I’ll get trough somehow

I’ve been waiting for so long and I’m ready
To change my lot ’cause I’ve noticed, I’ve noticed
I need more, I need more, I need more

I’ve been waiting for so long
And now I’m ready to change my lot

I’ve been waiting here alone for the whole day
The air is cold and my hands are dry
I heard a song that reminds me that he’s gone away
Away away away away away

I just want to go outside
Under these grey clouds
All I wish tonight
Is to have no doubts

’cause everyday is passing me by
And every time I wake up I don’t know why
’cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

I’m trying to but I can’t appease my rage
My hood is already soaking wet
Heavy rain is falling, I just sit and wait
I wait I wait I wait I wait I wait

So now it’s raining on me
but I don’t want to move
I just want to sit here
till I’ve got flu

’cause everyday is passing me by
And everytime I wake up I don’t know why
’cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

All the raindrops on me are going to dry someday
I am going to miss them as I miss his face
And every time I hurt I’m going to miss that too
’cause every pain I feel teaches me something new
