Come here close, the night is cold I swear I won’t hurt you, no weapon I hold Come here closer, there’s nothing to fear I’m scared of the distance, come and sit here There’s nothing I want more than talking to you Believing your words, believing in you You see I’m here, nothing more than what you see and I want to know you, and let you know me… For when they say “don’t give your trust” I feel it like a loss And if I did, I did not trust I couldn’t recognize myself… No reason, no good advice can hold me back: now stop all these lies No shield I need: I'm here, I'm here, I am what you see Come, stay if you want I’ll even take hurt It’s better, it’s better than an empty world Come here close, this train running slow has a long way to go, I’ll tell you what I know Come here and touch me, let me hear your voice Just turn into order this world full of noise Don’t lie ‘cause I’m helpless, don’t run and don’t scream Just give me a chance and I’ll tell you my dream I know how we’re made, we hurt and we run But believe me, it’s better bleeding than alone… No reason, no good advice can hold me back: now stop all these lies No shield I need: I'm here, I'm here, I am what you see Come, stay if you want I’ll even take hurt It’s better, it’s better than an empty world Closer, closer, just come closer, let me see you, hear you, feel you Closer, closer, no more silence, no more cold, let me hold, let me hold you Come, stay if you want I’ll even take hurt It’s better, it’s better than an empty world

In our garden there’s a monster, and he’s waiting in the well take your book, now, turn the pages hold my hand and find the spell In our garden there’s a passage where the two trees join their arms if a world alone is small if a world is not enough we know what to do In our garden there’s a secret we’re the ones who made it be yet we long to know the answer would you find the truth with me? In our garden there is magic is it dark or is it white? It is dark but we are strong it is white, and it is ours we know what to do In the twilight, in the twilight when the day is saying goodbye when a little fear comes in it is then I love the most to be with you, in our garden And a thousand seasons danced away from our little land And a million stars shined, burned and died in the end Give me just some years to walk and to see the world outside Then we kept the promise: we met again, at the right time And we're still walking in our garden In our garden there’s a secret there’s a twisted mystery it is not one of our stories it’s a cold breath from the sea It’s a nightmare, unexpected but I'm sure you won't fall apart Hold my hand now, trust our training all those years have made you strong take the book, now, you can use it there’s a monster in the well you don't have to be afraid You still have our spell

One of you 03:42
Through the streets in the dark, through the storm and the snow, with the rain like a mantle and the winds that blow On the paths in the forest, in the heat of the sand, beneath gates of gold, from the sea to the land When the sun claims his rights I am coming In the houses of stuff, in the houses of stone, in the palaces hosting a man all alone In the worlds with no name and no voice to cry out, in the faith that is always grown by the doubts In the stories you dream I am coming I still come in your streets on your feast of the sun I don't want to be king, I just want to become one of you where you are standing when you're trying to change the ending when you're burning with desire and you cannot understand it one of you when you're asking for mercy When you say "Have mercy on us" In the rooms filled with fire where the laughter is warm, in the cold of the self-made hells, full of storm In the homes of the waiting, on the eve of a fight, on the wings of an echo of legends, tonight in the dreams of the lost I am coming I still come in your streets on your feast of the sun I don't want to be king, I just want to become one of you where you are standing when you're trying to change the ending when you're burning with desire and you cannot understand it one of you when you're asking for mercy When you say "Have mercy on us" In this world that was never made to be the same, there are different people and different names In this place that was made to be so many things, it will blossom one day if you'll take care of it it's your garden and here I am coming Till the end of the times there will be many songs there will be many ways, and I will walk my road to come down where you are standing when you're trying to change the ending when you're burning with desire and you cannot understand it I'll come down with the pilgrims of time and I'll join your voice when you sing

If the water has just one way if I'm following the river if the night is cold and silent and I'm left outside to shiver if I know where I am going for there is no other way if the clouds above me gather and the light they take away If my mind is like the water if my mind goes with the river there is just one way to go and the road will always be there If I take the words that come to me as the first strikes of a war if the light is shining brightly but I can't see it anymore You've got to teach me before the lies can reach me teach me how to listen to the truth I' missing And then you've got to tell me the names of those beside me Come, take me away, show me there's a way and then there is another Come and speak to the water, make it disappear. I'm still waiting here for your words that always get me to the other side of the river in my mind In the middle of the real world I'm still following my river but the things will be all right if you just agree to be there and to tolerate the flow of words all the words I will get wrong you can skip the words and read the sound to find truth into their core You've got to teach me before the lies can reach me teach me how to listen to the truth I' missing And then you've got to tell me the names of those beside me Come, take me away, show me there's a way and then there is another Come and speak to the water, make it disappear. I'm still waiting here for your words that always get me to the other side of the river in my mind This is not a world for those who are not good when it comes to words too much, too loud, too harsh, too strange or always not enough So I count on you to come close to me and to whisper the right answer and the true names of the things You've got to teach me before the lies can reach me teach me how to listen to the truth I' missing And then you've got to tell me the names of those beside me Come, take me away, show me there's a way and then there is another Come and speak to the water, make it disappear. I'm still waiting here for your words that always get me to the other side of the river in my mind

Fire fire burning bright in the dark rooms of the night show the ones without direction where's your shelter and protection show the ones who lost their way where their rest is, far away show us all the hidden face of this living, endless place Fire fire, blessed flame in the dark you call my name I was roaming, lost and frail when I saw your blessed trail Then I followed your strange call piercing through this fading soul till that window came in sight where your children share your light Fire fire burning bright beating heart of this dark night in this world that's full of shouts there are those who close their mouths you are born inside their gaze in their patient, silent days you're the sign upon the door you're the haven and the shore Fire fire, blessed flame here I am, covered in shame while this awful, endless sound makes me circle, round and round Let the darkness be more clear give me peace enough to hear a new voice that whispers close and my secret tongue it knows Fire fire burning bright in the alleys of the night there are many with no name lighting up your silent flame show the ones who must retreat there's a victory in defeat draw the map of a new land for the ones who reached the end Fire fire, blessed flame all my enemies proclaim that I'm lost, I'm out of time will you give me just a rhyme? You can save me with one verse. In this living universe when I've learnt your holy song with your light I'll sing along I'm following your call The darkness swallows all I thought that I had lost my voice, that I could only fall Yet you're still burning bright you answer with your light I see them lighting up every corner of the night I'm joining in your song that's burning all night long I thought that all the world was lost, but then I was proved wrong Those worn-out words like “light” that get lost in the fight I want to make you see them when my window is alight

Go now, see this endless world all around you, then just turn and see me There’s no key to your door but the one you imagine it’s there Fly now, find all your dreams build a city of glimmering words There’s no wall for your soul and no end to this road if you want And I’ll be waiting, I’ll be here standing You’re such a beautiful butterfly to miss you as you start to fly All the world crashes down and you know what it feels like to fall in the dark still you whisper the words of a spell and you’re still going on When you lose, when you cry you believe that the light is still there, in some place like there’s hope in the hands of a winter You know what is the name of your spring Go on, keep telling your tales there’s a ghost in the rooms of an old house and the snow, and the cold, and the memories now broken that stay Tell me, if you were there would you fall in the spires of her nightmare? If you were in a tale, with your words you could rewrite the end And I am listening, I am here standing Sorrow is with us whenever we talk but you welcome it, and then you go on All the world crashes down and you know what it feels like to fall in the dark still you whisper the words of a spell and you’re still going on When you lose, when you cry you believe that the light is still there, in some place like there’s hope in the hands of a winter You know what is the name of your spring Thousands of promises, our voices are promises they're in my heart, and I won't lie to you Show them the face of a dream with no measure of our song in the darkness, of our snow and our spring All the world crashes down and you know what it feels like to fall in the dark still you whisper the words of a spell and you’re still going on When you lose, when you cry you believe that the light is still there, in some place like there’s hope in the hands of a winter You know what is the name of your spring

Take me away 06:02
Find me in my night, I’ve been waiting for so much time Locked inside these walls I’ve been waiting, I’ve weaved my dream to fly So now... Take me to the other side of the world, into the light I long for the never-ending warmth that with you I find Touch my frozen heart, there’s a world there but now it’s closed Show my soul a way out of this sad cage where I am trapped And then take my hand and lead me far away, where we should go Whisper to me words of innocence and beauty that no-one knows I'm already there, dreaming I am there, I'm already there Guide me all the way, I will follow your sweet steps Tell me of the land we will find beyond this night of pain So... I will be the voice of all our songs, on the way I will draw the road to all our visions, our dawn of day I'm already there, dreaming I am there, I'm already there A whole life in waiting – this time I am leaving Be my wings and help me to fight with my prison I'm already there, dreaming I am there, I'm already there Take me with you out of the heart of the night to some place of light Take me with you where I can breathe where I can believe Take me to the end of the night to the city of the light Take me with you, take me away

All the world was asleep until somebody spoke and the first word that ever was heard it shook the sky and woke Woke up the sleeping men turned all the dark to gold cities would grow rivers would flow when the first tale was told Born from a song of love Children of earth and sound our voices hide a power inside: our tales make the world go round With words we're weaving worlds those living worlds that strive and dance and fight explode in the night our words keep them alive And if the words are real and if the tale is true it burns in your soul, reminder and call. You told it and it tells you

I remember that I was all alone I was on my way and I met a storm In the open space looking for a place to endure the storm I came at that door “Welcome wanderer, whoever you are Come and sit, ‘till the end of the storm you can’t go away” So I said “I’ll stay” And they said “Let the stories begin...” For you have reached the place out of time where you wait for the end of the storm Where you drink and get warm, and you meet some good strangers you listen to stories and tell yours in return Words, tonight, melt into colours in the stories you’ll hear there's all your life Raise the glass, make a toast to the Lord of all Stories and forget the flowing of time So the light goes dim and the tale begins it’s a tale of dreams of a city’s dreams Then a fairy folk tells about his luck A young sailor tells of sea wonders And these strangers coming from afar they are talking of death and of life And I listened all night and I laughed and cried and I told my story too For you have reached the place out of time where you wait for the end of the storm Where you drink and get warm, and you meet some good strangers you listen to stories and tell yours in return Words, tonight, melt into colours in the stories you’ll hear there's all your life Raise the glass, make a toast to the Lord of all Stories and forget the flowing of time So the storm was gone and the sky had become like a road of stars And then from afar we saw them in flight breaking through the night: a procession with tears and mystery Were they vision or real, Figures in a dream? Then I met the gaze of a girl, in the end “Give a tear, a goodbye” Silently I cried and my song faded into the night
10.
The first time it came to me I was alone in there in the hall filled with noise, and nightmares and ghosts to share Three chords and just one word in a language I didn't know but it truly felt like I'd finally won the war And I stayed and I sang and it seemed that the world wasn't really such a still place at the end of the hall if I went through the wall I could reach an endless space Lost in a blizzard storm, they came from all the way waving flags of a truce I didn't know that day I thought I'd heard the tunes, how this old song should go but they painted all the rooms with colours I didn't know Dancing on the edge of these flaming nights Searching for the words, misreading all the signs I will say no if they say must, but I will wait if you say trust But, oh, all the iron-clad and weak, they melt if you just sit and speak And I know, and I know: we can't be free from storms, and the night is about to fall But if we squeeze our hearts, all the engines restart and there's lots of rooms for all Before my story ends I want to build a stair it doesn't matter when, I know I'll see you there we'll have our wounds to show, and stories of the long fight Then I'll take a bow and go: I've proved that the songs were right Stay here awhile, let's give the earth another name Making up new words, tracing lines upon the face of this old world that will be new, behind its mask the smile of truth And stories written on the stone, they'll last and tell that we have won We have won

La lanterna 04:04
C'è un'ombra che sussurra e sulla soglia sta un mondo che ti chiama e aspetta qui Non sai dove ti porta, ma di notte splenderà la tua finestra, se rispondi “sì” Noi sospesi tra più mondi, noi curiosi viaggiatori, non ci basta il nostro tetto né sopravvivere da soli Prima ancora di capire abbiamo scelto dove andare Qui tra ombre sconosciute resta fermo ad ascoltare Voglio essere qualcuno che ha mille case e mai, mai si fermerà Voglio essere qualcuno che sa nel silenzio raccogliere la verità Quel che darai ritornerà e il cuore guarirà C'è un mondo prigioniero del mondo attorno a noi splendore e fango dell'umanità C'è una lanterna accesa alla mia finestra, vuoi entrare, stare fino all'alba qua? Questa è una ricerca folle e una strada senza fine un viaggio tra le ombre esistenza su un confine Raccogliendo volti e storie sfidi ogni oscurità Dai un nome a tutti quelli che la tua strada ti darà Voglio essere qualcuno che ha mille case e mai, mai si fermerà Voglio essere qualcuno che sa nel silenzio raccogliere la verità Quel che darai ritornerà e il cuore guarirà Prima ancora di capire abbiamo scelto dove andare Qui tra ombre che conosci resta fermo ad ascoltare Voglio essere qualcuno che ha mille case e mai da solo si sentirà Voglio essere una casa per te sciogliere i nodi del buio vincere il mondo con te
