MAUVE KITCHEN LOVE


88 I need your mouth // To fill my doubts // This is the truth // That I hide to you

I need your doubts // To shut my mouth // This is the truth // That I hide to you again.

JAGUAR, WE HAVE TO GO I’ve so much to tell you // But time is never, never enough

We have to go now // No time for quiet // We have to go now // No time for rest // I see you behind the window // Of a very different life // We’re taking different paths // Far away from the ghosts // Your nose, your cheeks will burn // In my memory’s flame // We’re taking different paths // Far away from the ghosts We love each other so much // That we resolve to stay far away // We love each other so much // That we resolve to stay far away // Stop, please don’t move // Stop, please don’t speak // We love each other so much // That we resolve to stay far away // So far away // So far away // So far away // So far away.

SANTIAGO I don’t know if you think // To the words that we’ve made // I don’t know what to do now

I don’t know if you think // To the mess that we’ve made // I don’t know what to do now // In the middle of july I don’t think we’re safe // Even if we have the mountains // In the middle of july // I don’t think we’re safe I don’t know what love is now // I just see the evening light // And I know that you’re right // I don’t know what love is now // I just see the evening light // And I know that you’re right // I don’t know what love is now.

ELECTRONIC SCALES I can’t see myself, I see numbers // Lost twenty pounds, fifty are not

enough // Pills and light coke, fasting, shiver // Sometimes I’m trapped, sometimes I fall // Mirror mirror on the wall // I’m not fair, oh shit // I’m not fair at all // Electronic scales under my bed // Electronic scales under my bed // Mirror mirror on the wall // I’m not fair, oh shit // I’m not fair at all // Electronic scales, electronic scales .

EDIMBURGO MEGA-PANDA FAKE YOUTH (ONLY SILENCE) On a cold winter night // I’ll give you my life // With the snow

falling down // And no more need to lie // I have no words // To describe her // Only silence // Magic silence // I have no words // To describe her // Only silence // Magic silence // The mauve of a cloud // Or the nightingale’s song Will bring to your mind // Our innocent time // I have no words // To describe her // Only silence // Magic silence.


SEAN CONNERY CANTERBURY So take my hand // And watch these stars // So close to us // Nothing to ask

We’re walking // Through the horizon, I see // Please forget my // Faults and reasons And the wind blows // The age of suffer again // Please forget my // Faults and reasons.

NEVER REGRET You told me a story // Of love and death // You made me realize that I’m not

So strange as I thought // I need your colours today // You have the morning inside // I need your colours again // So give me the morning light // Ah, before // That was true // You told me a story Of love and death // You made me realize that I’m not // So strange as a thought // Ah, before That was true // But never regret // Never regret // I’ve nothing to photograph // Nothing to read about // No one to tell my doubts // Ah, before // That was true // But never regret // Never regret.


BUTTER I believe in karma so...

I behave well as I’m waiting for... I believe in karma so... // Here I whisper my only wish: // Spread Butter on me // Sweet, naked, chubby cherub.

LAST B She’s leaving today // Don’t cry, it’s too late // Time has

gone by // With brightness and grace // Beauty is a play // Ending too soon // Sorrow is hard // It’s freezing your heart // She’s leaving today Don’t cry, it’s too late // Time has gone by // With brightness and grace. *inspired by Cesare Pavese
