DON'T BLOCK THE SUN (Marco Magnani lyrics)

"Tell me where the hell you run to?"
I have heard the mad man scream,
"You're all going crazy now
you're all going insane
Move, step aside, you block the sun here
get out of my way

I can see that you've been programmed,
Data files on the run,
you're corrupted numbers. Nothing can be done.
Move, step aside, don't you erase my dreams
get out of my way

Where the hell you run to?
where the hell do you go?
you're all going crazy
you're all going insane
Step aside, you block the sun
you will all be dust. you'll be gone.
Step aside, you block the sun
you will all be dust. you'll be gone

Where the hell you run to?
where the hell do you go?
you are only numbers
No direction home
Step aside, you block the sun
you will all be dust. you'll be gone.
Step aside, you block the sun
you will all be dust, you'll be gone."

I heard the mad man screaming loud again
"You're all going insane!
you're all going insane again!"
I heard the mad man screaming loud again

THE LADY WAS A FREAK (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Would you ever guess by looking at her that the lady was a freak?
going raving in the 60's stoned off her head on L.S.D.?
dancing in the park among the flowers, spinning round
maybe your grandfather was there too

Would you ever guess that lady sitting there used to be so wild?
taking every substance you could think of at the Isle Of Wight?
Following the Beatles round in 1969.
your grandfather used to go there too.

Would you ever guess by looking at her that the lady was a freak?
going raving in the 60's stoned off her head on L.S.D.?
With beautiful long hair to see the "Stones" playing in Hyde Park
she danced among the flowers getting high

BABY YOU'RE JUST A LIAR (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Baby you're just a liar
I see that you're still trying
To make me feel I'm wrong & say I'm paranoid
But all you do is lie

Baby you're just a liar
You like to play with fire
You're pushing me too far, out of my mind,     
'Cause all you do is lie


You think that I know nothing
But let me tell you one thing
For me there's just one rule, you treat me like a fool
& that's the end with you.

Baby you're just a liar
You like to play with fire
You're pushing me too far, out of my mind     
'Cause all you do is lie

Baby you're just a liar
I'm singing but I'm tired
you're changing side according to the crowd you're in
I've had enough of lies

Baby you're just a liar
You like to play with fire
You're pushing me too far, out of my mind     
'Cause all you do is lie

THE ENDLESS ROAD (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

You think the road will end
it stretches out again
Not much point to quit my friend

Don't take it fast,
there's no first, there is no last.
Up or down, there's still more for us to find.

Along the endless road
we run, where we don't know.
You slow down onto the sun.

Don't take it fast,
there's no first, there is no last.
Up or down, there's still more for us to find.

I see your shadow run,
it's you against the sun.
The road is long through day & night.


Don't take it fast,
There's no first, there is no last.
Up or down, there's still more for us to find.

SHELTERED BY THE WALL OF SOUND (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

With wrong notes stuck in your ears
only you know how it feels
but I saw you crouched in a corner
whispering" I'm sheltered by the wall of sound".

All the noise filled the space
you felt her hands on your frozen face
she screamed "it's now, I see it coming"
you touched & kissed, sheltered by the wall of sound.

All those blinding flashing lights
drunken summer night drive
You know around here there are problems
but you just laugh & crash into the wall of sound.

They found you outside the gates of morning
breathing slow, shattered by the wall of sound.
Barely alive, shattered by the wall of sound.

Gone insane, sheltered by the wall of sound.

ANOTHER GREY MORNING (lyrics by Marco Magnani)
 
It's another grey morning, you said to yourself,
With your cat next to you as you laid in your bed,
No noise came from outside
Then you slowly got up
To see nothing else moved but the leaves on the trees
No one walking, no cars, just the sound of the wind.

Then you felt like a chill coming slow down your spine
With a new sense of panic that made your heart pound,
Shaking looking around
Wondering "what's going on now?"
Bursting out in the street, walking fast into town,
No trains moving, nor clocks, there was nobody around.

No noise came from outside
Then you slowly got up

Nothing moving around but the leaves on the trees

No one walking, no cars, just the sound of the wind.

ROAD MUD & COLD  (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Road, Road, it's starting to get cold
but I'm here, there's no return
Road, Road, the love I felt has been sold
And I threw away all silver & gold.
I guess I search for the unknown.

Mud, mud, you make me walk so slow
I've got a long, long way to go.
Rain, rain, for you it's all the same
falling down whether I'm glad or in pain
Will you stop at least today?

Road, Road, now covered up in snow,
I forgot what I came here for.
Road, Road, I don't care anymore
about what's right or wrong, I'll carry on
searching for the unknown

Road, Road, Road, Road.

ANY PART OF TOWN  (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Drop me at the corner
anywhere or anytime,
Any street or any part of town.
Leave me by the crossroad
by the flash of city lights.
Where the sky meets the horizon I'll be gone
I'll reach the end, to start all over once again.

Drop me at the station
where the ramblers come & go,
standing still while everybody runs.
Near the rusty railway,
you can take your train back home.
Where the sky meets the horizon I'll be gone
I'll reach the end, to start all over once again.

Take me to the green field where our story once began
I dreamed of you and found you've gone again.
Take me to the river, which I'll follow to the sea.
Where the sky meets the horizon I'll be gone
I'll reach the end, to start all over once again.

Any part of town
Any part of town

HIT BY LIGHTNING (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

How does it feel to be hit by lightning
when you're there to find the sun?
To ask for help when there's nobody
and all the songs inside your mind have gone
And from that rapid change there's no return ?

How does it feel to keep on stumbling
When you want to speed up and run ?
Struggling to stand you keep on falling
And all the hopes you had are somehow gone
yeah, all the hopes you had are quickly gone.


How does it feel to be hit by lightning
to look around and see it's all dark ?
to be dragged away by a passing hurricane
and all you had before is suddenly gone
yeah, all you had before is quickly gone.

EVIL FAIRIES IN THE PARK (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Strange light dawning
Evil fairies in the park
Soft song calling
they're getting near me again.
Strange shades moving
I turn & wonder where they've gone
but I feel them
they're getting near me again


Along the path I keep walking slow
trying hard to find my way
I keep on trying my best to keep calm
but they pull me down again

They're here surrounding me again
I feel their evil eyes just stare.

Strange light dawning
Evil fairies in the park
Soft song calling
they're getting near me again.
Strange shades moving
I turn & wonder where they've gone
but I feel them
they're getting near me again

No one in sight, I'm trying to run
while I must have lost my way
I keep on trying my best to keep calm
but I face them once again

I hear them whispering my name
I'm gone, they drag me down again

SWEET & WILD (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Sweet & wild
you slowly embrace the sun
Sweet & wild
you bring me back to life
Sweet & wild
our place is not so far
In no time we'll stop & rest awhile

I hear tunes that the sun now sings
and the tunes the waves are bringing
All the tunes buried in the sand
As the rocks lie in silence

We can close our eyes
We can close our eyes

We can close our eyes

I'M STOPPING HERE(Bombs & Guns)

 (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

I'm stopping here and will not move
you go ahead, whether you win or lose.
I'm stopping here cause I'm so tired to run
and to rush out to places I could do without.

I'm stopping here and you can go first.
Run for the race, I'm trying to close my eyes.
Reach for your phone and new technology,
You play me a song, you hear a blast & we're all gone, gone, gone.

Bombs & guns
while you try so hard to have fun
To and fro they run
How can I sing songs?

I'm stopping here and I let you pass.
you speak so loud, but it's all nonsense sound.
You just complain for every little thing,
Another song, another blast & we're all gone, gone, gone.

Bombs & guns, you're so desperate to have fun
To and fro they run. How can I sing songs?

YOU'RE SO COLD (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

You're so cold
the sun is shining
Not much more that I can say.
You're so cold
Inside me I'm dying
but this road stretches out ahead,
I am going down that road again.

You're so cold
I hear you sighing
You don't want to hear me speak.
You've ignored all I've been saying,
you wasted all my precious time
yes, you waste my precious time.


( Alright, 'cause baby you're so cold. yeah yeah !  )
 
You're so cold
The sun's still shining.
There must be an easier way.
You're so cold
Inside me I'm crying,
but this road stretches out ahead,
I am going down that road again.


...'cause baby you're so cold, yeah yeah !

LET ME FADE AWAY  (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

It's just another morning
I wake up feeling strange
That sensation coming
Brings me down again


I really cannot stay, I must run away.
Nothing else to say
Let me fade away.

I could see it coming (here it comes again)
with a heavy rain (raining down again)
dreams of scattered ruins (here it comes again)
in my sleepless pain (coming down again)

I really cannot stay, I must run away.
Nothing else to say
Let me fade away.

It's a different morning (something has to change)
something has to change (it's a different day)
Now I must be going (here it comes again)
down that road again (raining down again)

I really cannot stay, I must run away.
Nothing else to say
Let me fade away.

ON HER BIKE  (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Here she comes cycling again down the road
I watch her move, she is slow,
with her pale skin, here she comes again.
I just observe how she sits on her bike,
slow, swinging left, swinging right,
all the rest that I had in my head's gone
and my fantasy runs.


She comes again
cycling fast down the road and she's gone.
She leaves a trail behind
Coloured perfumes which make me go blind.

Here she comes cycling, this time in the rain,
wearing a thin dress again
and she knows that you cannot look away.
I still observe how she sits on her bike,
swinging it left and right.
All the rest that I had in my head's gone.
while I turn and she's gone.

She comes again
cycling fast down the road and she's gone.
She leaves a trail behind
coloured perfumes which make men go blind.

TAKE MY SKY (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

You took the sky
ripped it up like a shroud
moving clouds from my eyes
a photograph with no background

Sun, sun, sun,
hey, where have you gone?
behind these walls and streets there must be a song.
Round & round. Gone down. Rise again.
you keep on going.
I am trying to sleep to rise again.
Would you feel at home in nowhere land?
Sun, sun, sun,
hey, where have you gone?
She took the sky again.

You take my soul
testing me to turn me cold
but when I burst into song
all your devils start to run

Sun, sun, sun,
hey, where have you gone?
behind these walls and streets there must be a song.
round & round, gone down, rise again,
you keep on going.
I am trying to sleep to rise again
Would you feel alone in nowhere land?
Sun, sun, sun,
hey, where have you gone?
She takes the sky again.
She takes the sky again.
She takes the sky again.
