Finisterre 03:47
Finisterre It felt like all the colours that had been locked up were suddenly poured over the world endless movement, endless song of dark blue waves blinding was the whiteness of the dawn the fading silver of the stars about to disappear the streaks of gold in the uneven sky Your furious imagination, it ran free as the colours were exploding in your eyes Your broken soul was shattered, it was everywhere a terrible, magnificent sight the wind was bringing voices of deliverance the day was rising on the gentle sea You tried to think about your heart and in your mind you saw the image of a strange, half-built machine all the fragments held together by mere will the will to be and say “I'm here” Somewhere far beyond the waves if you tried, you could see a new path to start again you knew that you were free And you could say, somehow “Maybe my future's starting now” That was the first word of your newborn tale You thought about your heart, a way to make it work a city grew inside the fire of your mind The ocean kept your secrets when you chose to let them fly You tried your heart, the impossible machine You felt the rhythm, felt the constant moving of the gears that started once again when someone spoke Somewhere far beyond the waves… Just then you saw the land the first land of your healing soul The wind was your companion and it whispered words to you: breathe, live, all is new
Invisible shelter Rain from a time that is lost in the half light of storms I can feel what's behind in the darkness of all I see the pillars of stone I feel the bones of the world and the fabric of life and it's burning with stories untold - The heart of the world has never been silent at all All of your infinite souls in the maze of existence they shine and they burn they change and they turn in their season to bloom as they find their own room as I see you, I hope all these futures for you - and I pray that you're awake ready to cry out your song Open your mouth let the sky out let every river run free When all the noises have gone it's the voice of the world that is piercing your dream And in that chaos of words there's the trace of a song will you find it with me? Into the night of our shame if you whisper your name there'll be winds there to catch it and blow it somewhere In your fear, in your need throw your name, like a seed it will fall on the ground of some dying soul like healing rains, new blood in our veins new life exploding inside And all of these bounds broken with sound You are a tempest of song When all the noises have gone... I'll raise my own song again for your loss and your pain till your voice can be heard I'll weave this shelter of song and I'll sing as long as you need my voice Till I see you awake, till you can have your choice If you wait for the dawn you can wait here with me
Your voice 04:47
Your voice Help me my friend, I'm dragging through this world that you know so well Help me, listen, I'm on this road with darkness within I'm falling and I would call for help but my voice is giving way So help me tonight, give me your voice, help me reach the new day I've got no strength left so come, help me, please, in this place in the night I've got no strength left so, please, set me free bring my song back to life 'cause in my mind, in my head there are shadows of death in my head, in my heart there is stillness and dark be with me, close to me, send my prayers, give them wings be my light till I find my way home Help me stand, this world goes so fast and I'm not good at running Tell me once more it is useless to hide, 'cause they will always find me Tell me, please, how is it that my dreams once were home, and now they deceive me? Help me chase away the enemy, to free my dreams and to free me I've got no strength left so come, help me, please… We're so scared to look above 'cause we don't understand that love and this prayer's hard to send Oh, so scared to look above, we think we don't deserve that love and this prayer's hard to send I've got no strength left so come, help me, please…
Storms and magic Your dark words wove the net your dark words woke the fear your dark thoughts bore the plan your dark thoughts sent me here Your whispers rose the mist your wishes drew the veil your ill-will blew the wind your shadows changed my tale Inside your secret halls you drink to my bad times Your laughter shakes the world but makes me wise All of your whispering winds led me to be the king of a new country to where none of you will ever have the key Magic has many ways and I will count the days Wait for the night when everything goes wrong Follow the song Your dark words in the end got lost into the wind your dark thoughts made you strong your whispers brought you things That's the way of the world but I am far away where there are other rules There's more to come one day Do you hear the fairy song? Do you see the distant light? Remember who you are when the storm rises All of your whispering winds... “The rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance” All of your whispering winds led me to be the king of a new country to where none of you will ever have the key Magic has made me strange in a blink I will change all that has been Forgiven are all wrongs Follow the song
Viaggerà ancora Luna, silenzio, la notte d’argento lo specchio dell'acqua, i segreti del vento colori che cambiano, l’alba vicina Di tutto questo è regina Voci, canzoni, eterni misteri memorie del tempo dei desideri miracoli antichi che tornano ancora Di tutto questo è signora Ha mondi negli occhi, immensi e distanti e lui li ha amati, le terre ed i monti i cieli e le stelle, le porte segrete Lo colse il terrore di cose perdute Le disse “Rimani, ma gli occhi nascondi” Regina in esilio, ha perso i suoi mondi Fumo, nebbia, giorno per giorno qualcosa si perde, non c’è più ritorno se chiudi la porta alle tue visioni e scordi le tue canzoni Ma se chiami la notte ti ascolta la maschera cade un pezzo alla volta e dalle braci la fiamma si accende la strada è lì che ti attende Ha mondi negli occhi, immensi e distanti… “L’esilio è finito”, le mormora il vento Il mondo rinasce da un solo frammento “L’esilio è finito”, e lei ora vola Conosce la strada e avanza da sola “L’esilio è finito, ritorna, signora!” I mondi la chiamano: viaggerà ancora “L’esilio è finito, ritorna, signora!” I mondi la chiamano: viaggerà ancora
The wind has changed The sky has turned to blue the storm that came for you has left, and you can see the way The summer heat is gone the breeze is whispering on The door is open once again And in the twilight, on the edge of hopes and memories, dreams and fear you can outline the days to come, you can imagine what is near And yet the future holds things you don't even know are real Through the night it comes, it's the voice of the life that's deep inside the world And it sings out loud: in your silence it feels like a cry of victory Deep down in your heart, and it seems that the dark has never really been You still don't understand but if you look around you'll see that things have changed The wind has changed So go towards the white, a world so young and bright, towards a hurricane of light The new worlds and the old into your hands you hold the tale is starting to unfold Rewrite your history and paint it with the colours that are you Restart your engines and rename your land with words that sound so true Whatever things may come we will be here, this is our way Through the night it comes…
Don't fear the storm The story goes on the song's not over the river brings this message to the ocean This tune of healing upon the wind flies to bring some peace to those who were here waiting The storm has come to purify the darkness the storm is gone, the night is almost over Now see the dawn of your forgiveness your deliverance has come
Ariadna 03:48
Ariadna Since I have lived in this place for the past couple of centuries I think I might raise my voice and declare how I feel No, I don't like it at all this awful paint on the walls and all your blue-violet carpets I like even less Don't get me started about how you manage your kitchen Talking 'bout bedrooms – I'm gonna rant for a day It was so peaceful and sweet when all this ruin was complete and in the silent abandonment I swam in bliss Then you came to bring new life to this house that couldn't care less You are all so obsessed with the new even as you are mourning the old days You may want to consider again how you're dealing with time There's the interior designer suggesting the hideous lamp that you chose for your ceiling – I can't raise my eyes That guy said it looks like it came straight from the nineteenth century It is a lie: I was there, and they had some good taste There is the awful amount of your noises and voices that I could stand, if it was a mutual thing But every time that I scream and I'm interrupting your dreams You freak out: tell me, can't we live together in peace? Then you came to bring new life… If there is one thing I've learned from this condition I'm in it's something that's hard to earn something that is hardly seen It is a common mistake to think the world's going bad but all these things that you say they have always been said I've always listened to people around me so eager to condemn their time... Well, your days ain't bad, no, really – except for your unforgivable taste in interior design! Then you came to bring new life...
Miranda 04:27
Miranda Take me to the lands where men are living Sail me safely to the other side Show me all the skies you know I will follow where you go Taking in new wonders through my eyes Take me to the places of you childhood Teach me words and languages unknown Clad me with your white and gold Give me your sweet hand to hold Lead me in the palaces you own But don't let their whispers get to you The words behind my back They will say your queen is but a child A wild thing, a sweet wreck The relic of a world away You should have left alone Don't let their poison words betray me 'cause you know That I've brought back a universe that nobody knows And I've seen things beyond dreams, and I have no words To show the feeling of the land that raised me with air and sand But there is magic in me flowing with no end Understand Bring me through the rooms of all your castles Give me gardens where I can rest my heart But let me keep my own small light Let me dance into the night Let me speak to winds and clouds and stars Because twelve years is a century When you are far away In a world that has its secret rules And magic every day I played with spirits through the darkness When I was a child I'm made of stories, sea and magic and I can't hide That I've brought back... Here the tunes are good, but I remember the spirits who sang their songs for me So change, my love: you've got the chance Laugh out loud and run and dance Let a breath of magic set you free
From the haven I sing this song for you leaving today as your ship leaves the shore Remember me in the days that will come when I'll see you no more I feel the cold breath of the storm it blows upon my face so cast your light into the dark and guide me to your place I'll bring your song upon my lips it'll stay so close to me so I will always know my name against the enemy Hear what I say and remember my words we were together before the first day of the world Hear what I say and remember my words we'll be together after the end of the world Our story will have no end Your story we'll always tell You've been a great story and you still are We still gather around your fire If I must wait a thousand years I won't stop singing for you I'll change the darkness into a feast and dance to the sound of your tune So come the night upon our hearts, the night, our wounds to mend No moment shall I let fade away without a song or a friend Hear what I say and remember my words… I raise the glass to the time that has passed to all the things that we've done to all the songs unwritten yet to all our days to come
Half there 03:12
Half there I still remember everything the day it started, where and when the moment that it came to me and said “you can't be you again” And in that moment, yes, I knew nothing would ever be the same that everything was bound to change: my life, my world, my song, my name And I remember how I went with haste and doubt, with faith and fear I knew I'd walk a thousand roads I knew I'd live half there, half here And then the world became a song an orchestra inside my mind a world of lights, a friendly storm a night of stories to unwind I met the ones who live inside the secret spaces of what's real I spoke with those who had no voice I gave my voce, we all were healed I found the doors to other worlds and saw a landscape with no end I kept the secrets of the winds I called each one of you a friend With colours that were still unknown, with visions that I could make true I built a magical machine and then upon its wings I flew And all the stories, all the songs exploded in the shining night and everybody sang and danced until the new day filled the sky But if I stop and think, I see the toll this life still takes on me the scars, the nightmares and the wars, the things that I will never be Yet if a wizard came and said “I'll turn back time so you won't go I'll change that moment, change your life” I'd kindly say “Thank you, but no” Yes, if a wizard came and said “I'll turn back time so you won't go I'll change that moment, change your life” I'd surely say “Thank you, but no” 'Cause I could try a thousand lives but only one's designed for me I will befriend each wound and storm There's nowhere else I'd rather be
Finisterre Sembrava che i colori dalla prigionia fossero ormai liberi, e anche tu blu come le onde dell'oceano bianco come il cielo lassù l'argento delle stelle che pian piano vanno via i primi raggi come fili d'oro e dentro la tua sfolgorante fantasia ogni colore creava un mondo nuovo In pezzi la tua anima volava terribile e magnifico a vedersi il vento dolcemente ti portava speranza di riavere i giorni persi Cercasti di trovare il tuo cuore dentro te un meccanismo insolito, a metà frammenti stretti insieme dalla volontà la volontà di dire “sono qui, sono qui” Oltre l'orizzonte c'è - se cerchi la vedrai - una strada che è per te da lì ripartirai e potrai gridare allora “il mio futuro inizia ora” della tua storia, la prima parola Sentivi battere il cuore dentro te Cresceva una città nel fuoco dentro te Il mare ti ascoltava, confidente silenzioso, mentre tu sperimentavi il cuore Sentivi il ritmo di quel meccanismo misterioso e gli ingranaggi, mossi dalle sue parole Oltre l'orizzonte c'è… E lì vedesti terra, la prima terra libera Il vento era tuo amico e ti portava verità: tutto ora cambierà
Cambia il vento Questa tempesta che è scesa intorno a te in un'estate arida ha riportato qui un'aria limpida: adesso vedi la realtà E nel crepuscolo, nel vento di memorie e nostalgia frammenti di speranze e immagini di quello che verrà E quello che verrà è già nell'aria, accanto a te è già nell'aria, accanto a te è già nell'aria, accanto a te Nella notte c'è quella voce che nasce dall'oscurità tu la sentirai: nel silenzio sarà come un grido libero, entra dentro te e ti sembra che il buio sia solo una bugia Presto capirai senti il vento che cambia, il mondo che cambierà cambierà Vai verso un mondo che è bianco e giovane verso la luce che vedrai Frammenti di un'età lontana e nuova nella tua storia troverai Riscrivi la tua strada e mettici i colori che tu hai e cambia il nome alle tue terre, con parole che tu sai Venga il futuro, noi saremo qui, su questa via saremo qui, su questa via saremo qui, su questa via
Ariadna Visto che abito qui da due secoli e mezzo su questa casa io posso dire la mia: no, non mi piace per niente questa vernice invadente e quel tappeto violetto è una follia La tua cucina non si può proprio guardare e delle camere non voglio dire di più Vivevo qui da regina quando era tutto in rovina e nella desolazione trovavo allegria La mia casa era perfetta ora non ha più magia Vivete per la novità poi piangete i giorni perduti Ma perché non siete mai in pace col tempo che va? Poi c'è quell'arredatore che ti ha suggerito quella terribile lampada appesa di là tu dici, tutto contento “è in pieno stile Ottocento” Nell'Ottocento io c'ero: non era così Le vostre voci e i rumori potrei sopportare se almeno voi faceste lo stesso con me invece non posso gridare la casa non posso infestare Dimmi: c'è un modo per vivere bene con voi? La mia casa era perfetta… Da questa mia condizione qualcosa ho imparato è che la gente col tempo ha un rapporto sbagliato Siete convinti che tutto andando avanti peggiori e poi scordate il passato e fate i soliti errori Sono due secoli e mezzo che vedo la gente che vive così Potreste cambiare, fermarvi un momento e rivedere il concetto di arredamento... La mia casa era perfetta…
