"I've got so much left to say",that's what they'll carve on my grave
and there's nothing I can do,I'm just trying to get away
in a box of hopeful wine,a cheap one
'cause I've never been the kind of guy who spends so much to face his bust

I'm writing songs about a change wondering if I need to fade
I should buy a better boat and sail for days
but the storm is by my side,next to me
I won't raise that old anchor,I've got no more guts to fight the pain

I once woke up with a bane,I felt like a riddle with no key
I drank a lot and met a friend,she tried to ease my own decay
we talked together for a while,it meant much
it was some kind of confession,like when I said to her:

"There's something that will always make me blue
and I often cry without a reason too
I'm not even worried about having a job
'cause it'll suck my life even if I'm in a bud
I'm just looking for a place where I can bloom
but there's no more green,this is my fucking doom
and you know it's hard to wear an old ruined mask
I can't figure out why am I so upset
now I'm shaking like a fly inside a glass
'cause I need someone to love and be my friend
and I'm not so fine unless I've got some drugs
I'm drinking the whole day without giving a fuck
and I bet that soon I'll be part of the ground
I'm asking God what is this all about"

You know that I'm not so strong
you know,we're not so strong
and we'll never be

Happy birthday!
Track Name: Like Peter Pan
So many voices in my head
as stadium chants during a football match
I'd like to take a nap
I'd like to rest my mind again

So much red inside my glass
coherence soon will be dead
I'd like to overcome this dread
I'd like to be as strong as the words we said

Please,tell me you'll come back
I've got no one to follow and no more plans
please,tell me you'll be back
now I'm all alone,there's nothing to love

So many thrills behind my chest
I'm waving more than a yellow flag
I'd like to catch your hand
I'd like to breathe some air again

Please,tell me you'll come back
There's so much pain we can still share
please,tell me you'll be back
like Peter Pan,I've lost my own shadow
Track Name: A smile is not always a true feeling
I saw you smiling in front of a laughing sun
that woke up your rested eyes
and then saying: "it's a brand new day,everything's gonna be alright"
and I thought it was because of me
yeah,I thought it was because of me

I saw you smiling in the coldest night
with snow on the sides of the streets
then cradling it between your fingers and play with some friends
and I thought it was because of me
yeah,I thought it was because of me

I saw you smiling on the sand
that became one
with the water behind the weight of your lies
and I thought it was because of me
yeah,I thought it was because of me

I saw you smiling in the rain
that was falling softly
and I still wonder why was it like a meteorite to me
and I thought it was because of me
yeah,I thought it was because of me

I saw you smiling injecting wine straight to your veins
I gave you a present,it was your birthday
and I thought it was because of me
yeah,I thought it was because of me

I saw you smiling to another boy
at new year's eve
then staring at me like I was not invited
and I wished that guy was me
and I still wish that guy was me

and I still wish that you hugged me
and I still wish that you kissed me
and I still wish that you loved me
and I still wish that you were me

I understood that a smile is not always a true feeling
Track Name: 3000 Lies
I will hide
my face in the covers
forgetting that I'm not dead yet

I need to bind
a black band round my eyes
trying not to see the 3000 lies
I told myself

I should gain
a little bit of knowledge
to look beyond myself and not to be always the protagonist

I might rejoice
winning an old fixed match
and then exulting towards the mirror

Everything here seems so busy
so take me back where I can rest my head
I can't afford thinking again

I'm like a cloud so full of rain in a sunny day
I'm waiting to cry with someone else involving me
I'll fake a smile a few more days with no meaning
and no one may think that I am sick
Track Name: The truth
I can't afford to remember
that you once were mine

I thought you were unique
like the landscape round us

Near the city centre
of your hometown

I just admired it for one day
but now I miss it so much

I'd like to be there again
where the waterfall played

That graceful music
helped by the rocks below her

Sometimes,I think I need your help too

I can't afford to be lonely
like my aunt's left eye

And I guess it's so sad now
it lost a friend

I know a guy who was never alone
till his "brother" died

I saw him at the funeral
passing away in that grave

Somehow I feel as he does
I'm empty like the glass

We drank out the church
wishing it could help

Sometimes,I think I need your help too

I'm trying to pass
through the sadness
I'm laughing like a baby
under the Christmas tree
and I'm unwrapping some presents
looking for something true
there is no joy inside of 'em
not even in my soul
Track Name: Endless days
It's such a lovely day
and I'm reminding of the alphabet,I'll need to create new words when you'll
meet my eyes again
in a Wednesday night with so many friends,a lot of drinks and a shiver that might scare

There's such a lovely pain
and you're waving in your black shoes,it's like you've never walked before
that's why
I'm still waiting for your hug,just hoping to be strong enough to help you crossing the river of our faults

And we'll come back home

I'm hidden in the sand,I'm a crab waiting for the night
I've got nothing left to say,my tongue has been taken by surprise
now I'm so sure about
and I'm sweating feelings again
it seems like you're a sort of med

You're my short cut to home
you're my short cut to home

That was the first time I really smiled
that was the first time I really cried
that was the best day of my life

Endless days
endless days,the first time that I'm not lying

We'll meet again
we'll meet again
we'll meet again
we'll meet again
