"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

the sun exists for everyone/ il sole esiste per tutti – tiziano ferro

“In questa mattina grigia
On this cloudy morning
In questa casa che ora è veramente solo mia
In this house that really is now only mine
Riconosco che sei l’unica persona che conosca
I admit that you are the only person I know
Che incontrando una persona la conosce
That when meets a person knows him/her
E guardandola le parla per la prima volta
And looking at him/her she speaks for the first time
Concedendosi una vera lunga sosta
Conceding herself a really long break
Una sosta dai concetti e i preconcetti
A break from the concepts and the preconceptions
Una sosta dalla prima impressione
A break from the first impression
Che rischiando di sbagliare
That risking to make a mistake
Prova a chiedersi per prima cosa
Tries to ask herself first
Se a quella persona veramente
If about that person
Potra mai volere bene
She will ever be really able to care
Il sole esiste per tutti
The sun exists for everyone

Tu che pensi solamente spinta dall’affetto
You, the one who thinks only according to her feelings
E non ne vuoi sapere di battaglie d’odio di ripicche e di rancore
And you don’t want to know about fights, hate, spite and resentment
E t’intenerisci ad ogni mio difetto
And you are touched by my every single flaw
Tu che ridi solamente insieme a me
You laugh only together with me
Insieme a chi sa ridere ma ridere di cuore
Together with the one who knows how to laugh, but wholeheartedly
Tu che ti metti da parte sempre troppo spesso
You, who always puts herself aside too often
E che mi vuoi bene più di quanto faccia con me stesso
And cares for me more than I do

E trascese il concetto di un errore
And has transcended the concept of an error
Ciò che universalmente tutti quanti a questo mondo
What we all universally worldwide
Chiamiamo amore
Call love

Ti fermo alle luci al tramonto e ti guardo negli occhi
I stop you at sunset and I look you in the eyes
E ti vedo morire
And I see you dying
Ti fermo all’inferno e mi perdo, perché
I stop you from hell and I lose myself, why
Non ti lasci salvare da me?
won’t you let yourself be saved by me?
Nego i ricordi peggiori
I deny the worst memories
Richiamo i migliori pensieri
I call back my best thoughts
Vorrei ricordassi tra i drammi più brutti
I’d like you to remember when going through the worst dramas
Che il sole esiste per tutti
That the sun exists for everyone
Esiste per tutti
Exists for everyone
Esiste per tutti
Exists for everyone

Ciò che noi sappiamo
What we know
ha da tempo superato
has gone a long time ago beyond
ogni scienza logica concetto o commento di filosofia eremita
every science, logic, concept or hermit philosophy comment
ciò che non sei tu e che voglio tu capisca
what you are not and what I want you to understand
è quanto unico e prezioso insostituibile solo tuo
is how unique and precious and irreplacebale and only yours
sia il dono della vita
is the gift of life

Ti fermo alle luci al tramonto e ti guardo negli occhi
I stop you at sunset and I look you in the eyes
E ti vedo morire
And I see you dying
Ti fermo all’inferno e mi perdo, perché
I stop you from hell and I lose myself, why
Non ti lasci salvare da me?
won’t you let yourself be saved by me?
E nego il negabile
And I deny the deniable
Vivo il possibile
I live the possible
Curo il ricordo
I heal the memory
E mi scordo di me
And I forget about myself
E perdo il momento
And I lose the moment
Sperando che solo perdendo quel tanto
Hoping that by losing only that much
Tu resti con me
You(‘ll) stay with me

Ti fermo alle luci al tramonto e ti guardo negli occhi
I stop you at sunset and I look you in the eyes
E ti vedo morire
And I see you dying
Ti fermo all’inferno e mi perdo, perché
I stop you from hell and I lose myself, why
Non ti lasci salvare da me?
won’t you let yourself be saved by me?
Nego i ricordi peggiori
I deny the worst memories
Richiamo i migliori pensieri
I call back my best thoughts
Vorrei ricordassi tra i drammi più brutti
I’d like you to remember [when going] through the worst dramas
Che il sole esiste per tutti
That the sun exists for everyone
Esiste per tutti
Exists for everyone
Esiste per tutti
Exists for everyone

  1. I decided to look around for something to worship. Something I could really count on.

    And immediately, I thought of the sun. Happened like that. Overnight I became a sun-worshipper. Well, not overnight, you can’t see the sun at night. But first thing the next morning, I became a sun-worshipper. Several reasons. First of all, I can see the sun, okay? Unlike some other gods I could mention, I can actually see the sun. I’m big on that. If I can see something, I don’t know, it kind of helps the credibility along, you know? So everyday I can see the sun, as it gives me everything I need; heat, light, food, flowers in the park, reflections on the lake, an occasional skin cancer, but hey. At least there are no crucifixions, and we’re not setting people on fire simply because they don’t agree with us.

    Sun worship is fairly simple. There’s no mystery, no miracles, no pageantry, no one asks for money, there are no songs to learn, and we don’t have a special building where we all gather once a week to compare clothing. And the best thing about the sun, it never tells me I’m unworthy. Doesn’t tell me I’m a bad person who needs to be saved. Hasn’t said an unkind word. Treats me fine. So, I worship the sun. But, I don’t pray to the sun. Know why? I wouldn’t presume on our friendship. It’s not polite.

    • You and your favourite Carlin… 🙂 You always make me smile, D.
      You know damn well that I will NEVER EVER try to convert you, nor anyone else. You know why? Because faith is a question of destiny. Some are meant to have it, some not.
      But I expect everybody not to hurt my feelings for believing in God. At least this courtesy is not too much. 🙂
      Thank you my friend.
