HUAN songs: SOME MORE CARESSES

Ecco l’unica canzone d’amore degli Huan.

Some more caresses non è però una ballata. Non è un lentone romantico e sdolcinato. Cos’è? Cosa suonano gli Huan?
In fondo, se si dovesse dare un’etichetta alla nostra musica, è semplice pop con qualche incursione rock portata dal Grego, delle schitarrate jazz del Ghezzaus, tocchi blues di Giò e giochi di parole e note indie Made in Bu.
L’amore è un tema banale e trito nella musica. C’è solo un cantautore per me che riesce a non cadere nell’ovvietà parlando di questo sentimento: Benvegnù.
La mia canzone è apparentemente scontata. Parole stra-abusate e rime in inglese da studentello delle medie. Ma è una canzone sull’amore platonico, su quello che oggi è impossibile ottenere: l’amore che nasce dal cuore ed è alimentato dall’immaginazione. Un amore puro che non si consuma perché non è stato consumato. È l’amore pulito di due anime che si sono incontrate in tempi sbagliati ma i cui fantasmi si abbracciano e vivono di solo sentimento. Ancora. Dentro la mia testa. Per sempre.
C’è desiderio e passione, ma sono solo parole senza concretezza.
Penso sarà una delle pochissime, se non la sola, canzone d’amore che scriverò per gli Huan. L’amore non è un tema che mi ispira particolarmente…
Un brano che canto sorridendo…

A change is gonna come

Qualcosa cambierà. Ci sarà un momento in cui tutto questo subirà una svolta.
Il fondo non sarà più così nero.
Non raschierò le pareti in cerca di aria.
La speranza è viva e forte.
Sono forte e migliore oggi.
La protagonista delle storie fantastiche dentro la mia testa.
Just the unique, among the others. Better than you will ever find.



I was born by the river
In a tenament
And oh, my poor mother she could hardly pay the rent
It’s been a long, a long time coming but I know

A change is gonna come, oh yes it will

It’s been too hard of living
And I’m afraid to die
I dont’ know what’s out there beyond the sky
It’s been a long, a long time coming but I know

A change is gonna come, oh yes it will

See I go to my brother
And I say brother, “help me please”
And he winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees

It’s been times when I didn’t think
that I would last for long
But now we think we are all to carry on
It’s been a long, a long time coming but I know

a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Is this freedom?

SLAVES OF THE SOCIETY

We are slaves of the society
Speeches full of banalities
We squander our ability
Integrity, complicity
We are slaves of the society
Ready to sell our soul
At the cost of a ball
Our men with call girls
Our mothers all alone
We are slaves of the society
Trading feelings for fame
Thinking it’s not a shame
Not bearing our blame
Thinking it’s the same
We are slaves of the society
Ignorance as culture
Fashion as self-expression
Murders as wins
Politics as ambition
We are slaves of the society
We count sins as money
Show friends our trophies
They are only vanity and honey
We are graduate monkeys
We are slaves of the society
Expensive cars but cheap feelings
Unpicking, sewing, destroying, sewing
We pretend to be unfailing
But we are so unfeeling
We are slaves of the society
We lie cause it’s fashionable
Carve our illusion table
We think we are charitable
But it’s so debatable
We are slaves of the society
Right people in the prisons
And we alter the sun and the seasons
We kill our relatives
Cause it’s not so negative
We are slaves of the society
Drug addicts on the streets
And we own villas and ships
All we need is a big shift
Not fighting with swords and shields
We are slaves of the society
It sucks our energy
We gotta claim against it
This system freeze our love
It’s not freedom
It’s a mistake

A sweet song

STEAL EACH GLOW


I’d like to be your angel
I’d like to be in your soul
Just to love you in the most complete way of all
Protecting you in my womb
I’d like to be your fantasy which materializes in your hands
Gazing at the dawn with the sand on our fingertips
At low tide, at love time
I steal each glow coming from your eyes

Baby, baby, baby
Lovin’ you till the world falls down
Baby, baby, baby
Watching you with the sun on my skin
Baby, baby, baby

So pure the way I feel
As if I were ethereal
Like the air you and me
I gleam with you, you gleam with me
I glide on your body
You dance at the sound of my breath
No shyness, no shyness
I’d like to be your faith
Which never leaves you alone
And restores your feelings

Baby, baby, baby
Lovin’ you caressin’ your lips and mouth
Baby, baby, baby
Desirin’ you cause you’re the only person I need
Baby, baby, baby

Tell me you won’t vanish
Like dreams do when you don’t feed them
I’m afraid of the joy I feel
But you’re here with me, with me
You don’t let me fall
Cause you’re my guardian angel
Lost in this futility
That they call love
I can’t define it , but I know it’s good
Being with you you

Baby, baby, baby
Lovin’ you you’re here when I feel down
Baby, baby, baby
You’re the life that makes me breath
Baby, baby, baby

Just here with you
With you
With you
With you
With you
Till the world falls down
You’re the only person I need
Just staying with you
Your skin on me
Your skin with me
Your eyes on me
When I see you, I see you
I steal each glow coming from your eyes

The Very Thought of You


The very thought of you and I forget to do
The ordinary things that everyone ought to do.
I’m living in a kind of daydream, I’m happy as a king,
Foolish though it may seem, to me that’s everything.
The mere idea of you, the longing here for you,
You’ll never know how slow the moments go till I’m near to you.
I see you face in every flower, your eyes in stars above,
It’s just the thought of you, the very thought of you, my love.
