I Will Tell About You

I will tell about the time you said: "I swear I have changed"
And then you hadn't changed at all, the road remained the same
When you said I could save you and I did it with my heart
 
Then you searched inside yourself for an excuse and you confused me for other people
I will tell to my son the things we did together
The first day that I saw you: diamond among the hyenas.
You know, life can change us, only if we don't live it
Strange to say to ourselves sometimes it stays true who we are not
I will tell my friends,
to the few that will remain, that I discovered while I was walking, how good it is to stay still, that the more you try to feel better, you complicate your future even more
Fucking optimism, I don't want it as a shield
How many clouds do you need to notice the sky
When you lose a person you find out his/her true worth
And I who write and meanwhile I smoke, I distract myself however I can
Because existence is a game anyway and each choice a new step
 
I will tell about you to a passerby,
and if he will ask me for the why it is not important
And if destiny defies, I will shake the cards
with the trick of someone who with eyes closed leaves
Far away in the eyes there's a room
and sometimes losing yourself has meaning
And I will write for those who aren't enough and
when I will not be able to live anymore, I will tell about you.
 
I will tell about you, I will tell about you.
 
I will tell that I have tried to change who I was
When at school I escaped and the world was a black dot
Now it is hard to understand for those that don't know me,
the hardships that I have filled up, filling them with maybe's
The times that I have rejected and they said
"you're spoiled" because I have always
had everything and loved that which I missed
Go explain it to those that only preach that
exactly those who have had bread desire something else
I will tell to my son that your eyes are big and
that you have colored a meaning in my most important days
That you are beautiful and I didn't say it when I had the chance
I will explain to him that to exist is also doing what you want
I will tell to my dad that I didn't sleep at night
 
I tossed and turned in the bed and thinking about it again, I cried
 
It's strange how a song can be heavy,
Strange my condition that doesn't change and you distant.
 
I will tell about you to a passerby,
and if he will ask me for the why it is not important
And if destiny defies, I will shake the cards
with the trick of someone who with eyes closed leaves
Far away in the eyes there's a room
and sometimes losing yourself has meaning
And I will write for those who aren't enough and
when I will not be able to live anymore, I will tell about you.
I will tell about you, I will tell about you.
