HEAVY DROPS OF RAIN (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

These heavy drops of rain can wash away the pain, I know
and as they hit the ground I hear a strange & sinister sound.
From my head they all flow down
to my feet a stream comes out
there's colour now where everything was black and white

These heavy drops of rain can make you run away so fast
our sunny days have gone and for some time they won't come back.
in a puddle your shoes splash while you curse me looking back
I see you fade away as cars go by.

Curse me once again
stumble down and fall,
falling rain, falling rain, wash all this pain away,
rain, falling rain
I don't intend to move away.

You see drops fall on my eyes
and you're turning wondering why
there's colour now where everything was black and white

These heavy drops of rain

NO ONE MAKES A SOUND (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

Here no one makes a sound,

Here no one makes a sound
It makes me wonder if everyone's dead or alive
it's 10 p.m. but not a sound
I just can't sleep and I'm walking the street
but no one's around

Here no one makes a sound

Here no one makes a sound
It makes me feel so strange when I strum my guitar
though I really keep the volume down
I don't hear a voice or steps through the walls
I hear no sound

Is anyone alive in here?
is anyone alive in here?
I wonder will I disturb the dead if I sing,
or if I put some music on?
will I bring them back alive if they're here?
I hear no sound

IN THE BIG CROWD (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

In the big crowd we walk alone
Each one a dream in mind we're chasing
In crowded bars we drink and shout
can't speak our minds
we only whisper

I can't stop this train from rushing in my mind
trying to make things good while trying to slow it down

Can't stay alone. We need someone
The music starts. The song is over.

I want to explain. So hard to say
Just make me laugh, I can't stand crying

I can't stop this train from rushing in my mind
trying to make things good while trying to slow it down

In the big crowd we walk alone
Each one a dream in mind we're chasing

THE SAME OLD DREAM (Lyrics by M. Magnani)

The same old dream
all so clear, all so near
a place I have seen
don't know when, if it's real
It's so hard to tell you how I feel
Don't know where it comes from but it's me

Something to do with your voice so unclear
Bright light on green
Maybe I laugh while you sing
It's so hard to tell you how I feel
Don't know where it comes from but it's me

WINTER SONG (Lyrics by M.Magnani)

I can feel the winter
I can feel the winter
as I walk the windy street
passing all the bare trees
passing all the bare trees
with their arms they're touching me

I'll stop for something warm
That's what I waited for
I walk the road and I sing my song
breathing the silver mist in my lungs
breathing the silver mist in my lungs

I enjoy the cold wind, I enjoy the cold wind
silver mist against the sun
maybe trees are talking, maybe trees are talking

I can hear a very old song

I'll stop for something warm
That's what I waited for
I walk the road
and I sing my song
breathing the silver mist in my lungs
breathing the silver mist in my lungs

MILES & MILES AWAY (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

I'm not part of anything nor anyone or anywhere around me.
you can see me standing here
but I am miles away from what surrounds me.
Staring at a picture on the wall
I don't exist inside this crowded room.


Miles and miles away from you
Miles and miles away from you
The more I try to get close to you
darkness falls and all fades from view

A happy crowd of psycho minds
pass me by while shopping round, I'm crying.
I have heard about what you've done
I'm miles away from you but you're there screaming.
Stuttering as I order at the counter
I feel all eyes on me but it's my mind

Miles and miles away from you
Miles and miles away from you
The more I try to get close to you
darkness falls and all fades from view

Miles and miles away from you
Miles and miles away from you

YOU AND ME IN SPACE (Lyrics by M. Magnani)

It's a long, long way to travel
on a night that never ends
and our room turns into a spaceship
when I feel your skin again.
Love, you take me faraway
passing sparkling stars & milky ways
You really drive me insane
The world inside me explodes.

Down the street they're drunk & fighting
but we cannot hear at all
The whole world is going crazy
and everyone runs from the cold.
Love, we've lost the sense of time
Here right next to you I lose my mind

It's you & me in space
The world inside me explodes.

When I hold you in my arms I can feel the universe,
unknown planets, sounds I never heard.
on a silent night you bring sweet music to my ears.
Never stop to sing that song
never stop to sing that song
I feel good
I feel good


It's a long, long way to travel
on a night that never ends
and our room turns into a spaceship
when I feel your skin again.
Love, you take me faraway
passing sparkling stars & milky ways
You really drive me insane
The world inside me explodes.
The world explodes

The world explodes
The world explodes

PEACE NOT RELIGION (lyrics by M. Magnani)


As I'm walking the streets of the city
I see smiles, but I see madness too
and I think there has not been one moment
in which we had peace everywhere in the world.
I'm trying to understand what happens
reading news, such a mess in my mind
Well, can I say we need peace, not religion
machine guns they shoot, shedding blood,
if your God exists he wouldn't want that

You can preach trying your best to convince me
shouting loud, waving arms in my face
different views have created division
when this land is for us to be shared
A simple thing, so complicated
to be good, to be kind, to be as one
Well, can I say,  we need peace, not religion
machine guns they shoot, shedding blood
if your God exists he's misunderstood

Well, you're right, I don't have a solution
we just watch all this madness again
And you say we can't stop the rain from falling
We can't stop all the madness around.
A simple thing, so complicated
to be good, to be kind, to be as one.
Well, can I say  we need peace, not religion
machine guns they shoot, shedding blood
if your God could speak he wouldn't want that.
Machine guns they shoot, shedding blood
if your God exists he's misunderstood


Forever blues


BACK IN TIME (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)
 
Send me back in time
to the moment I have touched you
and the things that made you laugh.
Send me back in time
to when anything we felt was not misunderstood.

Take me there
, Take me there
to when we were so curious and darkness wasn't there
Take me there, Take me there
to when I wrote this slow song
The first I ever had.

Send me back in time
to the time we started running for a lonely place to hide
First time holding hands
through the spikes of sensual flowers
and feel aroused again.


Take me there, Take me there
to when we were so curious and darkness wasn't there
Take me there,Take me there
to when I wrote this slow song
The first I ever had.

Send me back to different moments
Sensing changes yet to come
take me from this rain & cold wind blowing
to that hidden place again.


Take me there, Take me there
to when we were so curious and darkness wasn't there
Take me there, Take me there
to when I wrote this slow song, the first I ever had.

YOU WANNA PUT ME DOWN (Lyrics by Marco Magnani)

You wanna put me down, but I can't stand it, baby
You look down on me, but I can't stand it, baby
Don't you want to stop?
Say what you want but I can't hear your words & your voice
Just take a walk the other way and don't take my soul, yeah!

You really bother me but I can't stand it baby (baby)
You wanna speak to me, but I don't want it, baby
Don't you want to stop?
Say what you want but I can't hear your words & your voice
Just take a walk the other way and don't take my soul, yeah!

I'd rather walk the lonely path than feel so down inside,
there's a song in my mind
the sound of my resurrection.
My mind is in the clouds, flying like a bird,
but you wanna drag me down and you just lurk around.
I will be on the road again
the sun will shine on me
here it comes again
the sound of my resurrection.

You wanna put me down, but I can't stand it, baby
You look down on me, but I can't stand it, baby
Don't you want to stop?
Say what you want but I can't hear your words & your voice
Just take a walk the other way
and don't take
no, don't take
no, don't take my soul

PROMISED LAND (Lyrics by M.Magnani)

We want to hide away
We want to hide away from these walls of grey
Just me & my girl, just me & my girl, nobody in our way
We've driven all the way to find a promised land
somewhere to dream away
but as we walk into the woods I hear them come
with bicycles and horses, or barking dogs.

We got to move away
We got to move away to find another place
Even further away
Even further away, nobody in our way
We hear those noises fade
We lay down again
This must be the place
But as I touch your lips I hear them come again
impossible to find a promised land

We want to hide away
We want to hide away but now it's getting late
The sun is going down
The sun is going down, we got to go away
it's time to drive back towards the city of grey
We'll try again someday
and we stroll our local parks on week days
we'll search for promised lands another day

FREE ME NOW (Lyrics by M.Magnani)


Sharp rocks breaking the waves by the sea on a stormy day
White monsters splashing out of the grey
with their mouths crying out loud
Free me now
silhouette blinded by light
Free me
Our summer days will be gone
You'll dance in the rain.

Objects sucked by the force of a whirlwind
that's near, so near.
dragging you away, you feel drops on your face as you fall
the whirlwind is here


Free me now, silhouette blinded by light
Free me, Our summer days will be gone
You'll dance in the rain.


WAVES (lyrics by M.Magnani)

Everywhere, I'm everywhere, my girl can't you  see?
Like the waves I'm floating faraway, now I'm here.
Like the waves I found my way out
Like the waves I found my way out.

Feel the air, I'm trying not to drag you away
Feel the wind I'm singing,
I don't know what I'm saying.
Like the waves I found my way out
Like the waves I found my way out.

One grain of sand
I got nowhere to hide
You call my name
You keep calling but I hear no sound
Calling but I hear no sound.

One grain of sand
I got nowhere to hide
You call my name
You keep calling but I hear no sound
Calling but I hear no sound.


Everywhere, I'm everywhere, my girl can't you  see?
Like the waves I'm floating faraway, now I'm here.
Like the waves I found my way out
Like the waves I found my way out.

SOMEBODY ELSE

I've been running but now I must slow down
Now it's time, I am ready to close my eyes
When I'll wake up again
I will be somebody else.
Someone who can rise above
Someone you've been dreaming of
Now it's time, I am ready to close my eyes

I've been running but now I must slow down
Now it's time, I am ready to close my eyes
When I'll wake up again
I will be somebody else.
Someone ready for the kill
one who never stands still.
Now it's time, I am ready to close my eyes.

ALL THESE PLANS (lyrics by Marco Magnani)

All these plans going & 'round in my mind
always take me back to your door in the end,
no matter how I try not to,
and my steps take me where my heart really wants me to.

All these streets
that by chance I pass in my car
seem to drive me back to some place we've been to
it's dawn & I think of you,
I just drove all night through
I cannot get away from you

I can try different routes for a change, someplace new.
north or south, east or west, but I will still find you.

All these words
changing sound & style mean nothing
but I'm just trying to say that I want you to stay
t's so hard to walk away
and if words sometimes change

there's nothing more I want to say
All these plans
