Due generazioni a confronto

Winter cityside
Crystal bits of snowflakes
all around my head and in the wind

I had no ilusions
That I’d ever find a glimps of summer’s heatwaves in your eyes
You did what you did to me , now it’s story I see
Here’s my comeback on the road again
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight,
it’s easy when you’re big in Japan

You’re big in Japan,
you’re big in Japan,
you’re big in Japan, inside.
You’re big in Japan, and
then i’ll sleep by your side and through the night,
Big in Japan, it’s easy…

Neon on naked skin
Passing silhouettes of strange iluminated mannequins
Shall I stay here at the zoo
Or shall I go and cahange my point of view for other ugly scenes
You did what you did to me, now it’s history I see…
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here my man tonight, it’s easy when you’re big in Japan

I’ll be, you see the way
too late, too late…
You’re big in Japan,
you’re big in Japan,
you’re big in Japan, inside.
You’re big in Japan, and
then i’ll sleep by your side and through the night,
Big in Japan, it’s easy at night.
You’re big in Japan, you’re big in Japan, you’re big in Japan, inside…
…you’re big in Japan…

…And The Flame Still Burns

 
I live a life that’s surreal
Where all that I feel I am learning
Oh life, has been turned on the lathe
Reshaped with a flame that’s still burning
And in time, it’s all a sweet mystery
When you shake the trees of temptation
Yeah and I, I know the fear and the cost
Of a paradise lost in frustration

And the flame still burns
It’s there in my soul for that unfinished goal
And the flame still burns
From a glimmer back then
It lights up again in my life
In my life, yeah

I, I want my thoughts to be heard
The unspoken words of my wisdom
Today, as the light starts to flow
Tomorrow who knows who will listen
But my life has no language in love
No word from above is appearing
Oh the time, in time there’s a fire that’s stoked
With a reason of hope and believing

Keep rolling keep that flame still burning
Keep on rolling while the world keeps turning
Yeah, keep a’rolling
Yeah, keep a’rolling, yeah

La McKennitt dall’Alhambra

The Old Ways

The thundering waves are calling me home to you
The pounding sea is calling me home to you

On a dark new year’s night
On the west coast of Clare
I heard your voice singing
Your eyes danced the song
Your hands played the tune
T’was a vision before me.

We left the music behind and the dance carried on
As we stole away to the seashore
We smelt the brine, felt the wind in our hair
And with sadness you paused.

Suddenly I knew that you’d have to go
My world was not yours, your eyes told me so
Yet it was there I felt the crossroads of time
And I wondered why.

As we cast our gaze on the tumbling sea
A vision came o’er me
Of thundering hooves and beating wings
In clouds above.

As you turned to go I heard you call my name,
You were like a bird in a cage spreading its wings to fly
“The old ways are lost,” you sang as you flew
And I wondered why.
