E diventare sempre più piccola.

This isn’t actually meant to be a blog about songs or posting videos. It’s just that sometimes, instead of falling in love with a poem, a book or a mere quote, it’s una canzone, its lyrics and the beautiful story of a floating leaf that enchant me.

Farti innamorare di me
Perdere la forza di gravità
Complicato e semplice
Rinunciare alla felicità
Io so soltanto che capita
Senza contare che non mi so difendere
Ed è già tanto se capita

Perdere la testa per te
La verità non è la verità
Cambiano le regole
Dammi un bacio fai la carità
Io so soltanto che capita
Senza contare che non mi so difendere
Ed è già tanto se capita

Finire con la testa all’ingiù
Leggere le carte a una zingara
Pensare a ciò che non c’è più
E diventare sempre più piccola

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

Urdonautal

When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.

 

Cheer up my love, because this too shall pass!
