"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Federico Garcia Lorca – If my hands could browse/Se le mie mani potessero sfogliar/Si mis dedos pudieran deshojar

 “Call Your Name
in the dark night,
when the stars go
and drink at the moon
sleep and the trees
dark forest.
And I feel empty
of passion and music.
Clock crazy singing
death hours old.
Call Your Name
and in this dark night,
your name sounds
farther than ever before.
Further than the stars,
most painful of the quiet beach.
Still love you
way? What crime
has my heart?
If you lift the fog
as a new love awaits me?
It will be quiet and pure?
Could my hands
browse the moon!”

———————————

“Pronuncio il tuo nome
nelle notte buie,
quando gli astri vanno
a bere alla luna
e dormono gli alberi
delle foreste cupe.
Ed io mi sento vuoto
di passione e di musica.
Orologio impazzito che canta
morte ore antiche.
Pronuncio il tuo nome
e in questa notte buia,
il tuo nome suona
più lontano che mai.
Più lontano delle stelle,
più dolente della spiaggia quieta.
Ancora ti amerò
come allora? Quale colpa
ha il mio cuore?
Se si alza la nebbia
quale nuova passione m’attende?
Sarà tranquilla e pura?
Potessero le mie mani
sfogliare la luna!”
—————————–

“Yo pronuncio tu nombre
en las noches oscuras,
cuando vienen los astros
a beber en la luna
y duermen los ramajes
de las frondas ocultas.
Y yo me siento hueco
de pasión y de música.
Loco reloj que canta
muertas horas antiguas.
Yo pronuncio tu nombre,
en esta noche oscura,
y tu nombre me suena
más lejano que nunca.
Más lejano que todas las estrellas
y más doliente que la mansa lluvia.
¿Te querré como entonces
alguna vez? ¿Qué culpa
tiene mi corazón?
Si la niebla se esfuma,
¿qué otra pasión me espera?
¿Será tranquila y pura?¡
¡Si mis dedos pudieran
deshojar a la luna!!”


ColdPlay – Fix You

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I…
Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I…
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you”
