You didn't do anything to me

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6
In Cairo they don't know what time it is now
The sun above the Rambla isn't the same today
In France there is a concert, people have fun
Someone sings loudly, someone shouts "Death"
 
In London it is always raining, but today it isn't bad
The sky doesn't grant discounts, not even for a funeral
In Nice the sea is red of fire and disgrace
Of people on asphalt and blood in the cesspool
 
And this enormous body that we call Earth
Injured in its organs from Asia to England
Galaxies of people lost in space
But what is more important is the space of a hug
 
Of mothers withouth children, children without fathers
Enlightened faces, like walls without pictures
Minutes of silence, broken by a voice
"You didn't do anything to me"
 
You didn't do anything to me
You didn't take anything away from me
This is my life that continues
Beyond everything, beyond people
 
You didn't do anything to me
You didn't gain anything
Since everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
 
Some people cross themselves, some pray on carpets
Churches and mosques, imams and all the priests
Separate entrances to the same house
Billions of people hoping for something
 
Arms without hands, faces without names
Let's swap the skin, at the end we are all human beings
Because our lives are not a point of view
And a pacifist bomb doesn't exist
 
You didn't do anything to me
You didn't take anything away from me
This is my life that continues
Beyond everything, beyond people
 
You didn't do anything to me
You didn't gain anything
Since everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
Your useless wars
 
Skyskrapers and subways fall
The walls of separation, errected for bread
But against every terror that is obstructs the way
The world stands up again with the smile of a child
With the smile of a child
With the smile of a child
 
You didn't do anything to me
You didn't gain anything
Since everything goes beyond
Your useless wars
 
You didn't do anything to me
(Your useless wars)
You didn't take anything away from me
(Your useless wars)
You didn't do anything to me
(Your useless wars)
You didn't gain anything
(Your useless wars)
 
I am aware that nothing will return again
Hapiness flew off
The way a bubble flies away

This song is stunning. I'm so proud of it for winning Sanremo.
