Back to Gallimel's "The Sink Was Full Of Fishes" Novel Page

A song which can make you feel poetry...

Raf's "Infinito"

L'ironia del destino vuole che io sia ancora qui a pensare a te,
nella mia mente flash ripetuti, attimi vissuti con te...

E' passato tanto tempo ma tutto è talmente nitido,
così chiaro e limpido che sembra ieri...

Ieri avrei voluto leggere i tuoi pensieri
scrutarne ogni piccolo particolare ed evitare di sbagliare,
diventare ogni volta l'uomo ideale,
ma quel giorno che mai mi scorderò
mi hai detto:

"Non so più se ti amo o no.. Domani partirò, sarà più facile dimenticare...E adesso che farai?"

Risposi:""Io.. non so"

Quel tuo sguardo poi interpretai come un addio,
senza chiedere perché da te mi allontanai
ma ignoravo che in fondo non sarebbe mai finita.

Teso, ero a pezzi ma un sorriso in superficie
nascondeva i segni d'ogni cicatrice,
nessun dettaglio che nel rivederti potesse svelare
quanto c'ero stato male,
quattro anni scivolati in fretta e tu
mi piaci come sempre,
forse anche di più...

Mi hai detto:"So che è un controsenso ma l'amore non è razionalità... non lo si può capire.."

Ed ore ed ore a parlare,poi abbiam fatto l'amore...
ed è stato come morire, prima di partire...

Potrò mai dimenticare, dimenticare?

L'infinito, sai cos'é?
L'irraggiungibile fine o meta che rincorrerai per tutta la tua vita,
"Ma adesso che farai?"
"Adesso io.. non so..."

Infiniti noi
so solo che non potrà mai finire,
mai;
ovunque tu sarai,
ovunque io sarò, non smetteremo mai:
se questo è amore..è amore infinito.

This song is currently (July 2001) number one in Italian singles chart, and it's the highlight of a great album too from a longtime artist.
Check it if you can from any site around.. it's amazing musically as well.

Raf's "Infinite"

Destiny's irony wants me to be here still, thinkin yet of you...
In my mind ongoing flashbacks, moments lived with you...

Lots of time has passed by but everything's so vivid,
so clear and limpid that it all seems yesterday...

Yesterday I would have loved to read your mind,
get so into every smallest particularity, for avoiding to mistake,
becoming every single time the ideal one,
but that day which I am never gonna forget you said to me:
"I don't know anymore if I love you or if I don't.. tomorrow I am gonna leave cos it's gonna be easier to forget, to forget... And what you're gonna do now?"

I said :" I personally.. don't know..."
Then I considered that sight from you like a goodbye,
without even ask why I detached from you,
but I was unaware that after all it would have never finished between us.

I was tense, I was broken but a showing -to -all kind of smile was hiding every scar,
there was no detail useful to tell you how much I suffered,
four years passed like sliding away and I like you as always,
maybe even more...

You said to me: "I know it's absurd, but love is not rationality.. you cannot understand it..."

Then hours talking, then we made love..
And it has been like dying.. before leaving.

Will I ever forget, will I?

The infinite, you know what it is?
The unreacheable aim or target you're gonna try to achieve
for the rest of your life,
"But what you're gonna do now?"
"I.. don't know now.."

Infinite we are,
I just know that this cannot end,
never: wherever you will be,
wherever I'll go, we will never stop cos if this is love,
then it's infinite love....
