Text When I Find You Francesco Renga

Look, my city is sleepless
And he stopped dreaming
How come no one admits it now
People who cut the shadows
While the traffic still fills up
Immense spaces of solitude

This time I have the impression
Hope has changed the mood
And my head doesn’t want to know any more
To stay still and I still continue to walk
Your eyes also get wet, maybe it’s raining
And the look that follows the path of a dog
And it turns out that
As always, I forget
I forget about you
I always forget
But then I find you again
Always if I look at myself
And there is nothing around

You are the expected amazement, a desire
The truth in an imaginary world
Always always
They blend perfectly
My joys
Inevitably
Always always
I always find them all
Only when I find you

This city is confusing
Of lights always on
They say he will be calm again at the end of the month
I always out of season
And your head doesn’t want to know any more
To stay still and that silence inside makes noise
Suddenly I start breathing again
One room, two chairs, dinner, a movie
What’s the ending?

As always, I forget
I forget about you
I always forget
But then I find you again
Always if I look at myself
And there is nothing around
You are the expected amazement, a desire
A new sound among a thousand notes in flight
Always always
They blend perfectly
My joys
Inevitably
Always always
I always find them all
Only when I find you

You sleeping on the sofa
When it stays on your hands
Your scent
Your stuff out of place
Those shoes on the stairs
They take me to you
As always, I forget
I forget about you
I always forget
But then I find you again
Always if I look at myself
And there is nothing around
You are the expected amazement, a desire
The wonder of each new day
Always always
They blend perfectly
My joys
Inevitably
Always always
I always find them all
Only when I find you

Only when I find
I find you
