ALL THAT EVER HAPPENS There's another trace running down my face for all that ever happened to me and unless you know me well you may find it hard to tell 'cause you always look but you never want to see since you went away we've gathered with our flags by the sea I am signalling for you and for all that ever mattered to me. Be it late at night or be my heart so light, well I made across the fields like a bee after you and I had lain there's a bruise I can't explain it's something my ex wants to see she said, "no one needs to know you can come and you can go as you please" so I prayed for it to heal but now sometimes I miss where it should be. May your plans turn out well may you see through this hard spell in the midst of war may you come back home for tea may the wind rising ere South leave a fragrance in your mouth when the halls wake-up may you know that you are free I'm thinking of the way you usher-in the day as you breathe there'll be a sense of your affection in all that ever happens to me.

I NEVER MEANT I’m taking a ride home but I’m not coming back I can travel the distance but never close the gap the road takes a share and time took its own so I’m finding my way back but I’m not coming home. Maybe all that I knew was all I ever had what brought me to you is tearing me apart now cover your eyes and try to forget we never meant it any less the day we met. She said, “come over, I’ll take over, step right in I’ve seven seas, an Indian breeze and sallow skin you and your friend choose end-from-end, mind the sway the tide rolls in, the ropes grow thin, and we’re away but I never meant to take you home.” "My love you’re so quiet,” she’d say, “and quietly in me you rise like an ocean, I gradually recede what silence denies me I’ll find in your arms so be gentle, be gentle with me, be gentle when it comes.” An older vibration - I don’t know what else to say - but mid-conversation I found myself away the front row is fading and the back takes a glance two souls find a line and there's room enough to dance. “You hear that voice,” she says, “it’s just a noise on the lee” but I suppose I’m one of those who needs to see so I went lower, leaned right over and started crying ‘cause all the lines were showing signs that I’d been lying and I never meant to take you home.

EASILY In the morning you've come knocking on my door and I can tell you'd like to talk some more you don't see but there's a-looking in your eyes that says you will and you don't even realize. You walked over past the windows and the floors you move around, well, as if it was all yours now they say that if you want it, it will come but they don't tell you it's so easily undone. I barely have to move and I'm there where I should be I hope whatever holds you back will vanish easily more and more. I remember when you said you had to leave 'cause it was not as you had intended it to be I felt winter as you walked out on the street you said, "please baby, will you not forget to eat." ' Cause in the morning you came knocking on my door I could tell, you had to say no more I could see there was a-looking in your eyes that said you would, and that was hard to realize. I barely have to move I'm still there where I should be I hope whatever holds you back will vanish easily more and more, more, baby, more and more. Giuliano Nistri © 2013

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING It goes without saying, it came without touch it moves just a little but a little too much you hold-on with no future like dew on a rose so it goes without saying and that's how it goes. You see, we tumbled like boulders, cold wind in a hall holding together, waiting to fall where I was your meadow now lavender grows it goes without saying and that's how it goes. The last dance was fading replaced by the mist I heard they were writing our names on the list and it glided between us as we lined-up in rows my love, my love, it comes without saying and that's how it goes. For the child in the field with bramble and nettle it could slow down but it could not settle well, they said it was something but nobody knows all she had left she left with her clothes and she said it was someone but nobody knows nobody knows for sure. It goes without saying, it came without touch it moves just a little but a little too much you sigh for a moment and that's how it shows when it goes without saying that's how it goes yes, when it goes without saying that's how it goes.

WHEN THE TIME COMES 71 foreign men in chains it's got to be a crime to have those names it's got to be a crime to be that faith at least enough to rile and implicate and your eyes will not see fit to pass judgement while you spit but there can be no spills if not without some stains 71 foreign men in chains. 75 women in a cage it's got to be a crime to be their age wondering how love turned into doubt in the same room when all the lights went out so choose a novel and bring it home you read it twice to feel less alone all the same it's hard to disengage 75 women in a cage. When the time comes lay down your hands I will know what to do so fold it in your arms 'cause when the time comes I will know what to do. 75 children in a cage and just as many drawings on the page the cat, the cow, the fiddle and the moon the dish will only feed the silver spoon and although the king's men tried it was way too much to hide so rub your eyes now it's time to come of age 74 children in a cage.

SAID THE SUN TO THE NIGHT "It would be nice to see you I left your pages white 'cause I've spent my life believing that someone like you cannot exist," said the Sun to the Night "help me put out this light." "You lay by the ocean while he drowned at your feet showing all his devotion he peacefully sang himself asleep and now it hurts even more to watch him cling to the shore." "I turn around and I hope that when I look for you, you'll be there I should just hold you but I get tired and convince myself that if I let you go you'll be ok and I ask for your permission to be free." "They placed the Earth between us and half of the Moon now she rolls-by and you leave the minute I walk into the room did you do it for me or just for them to see?" "And we could make them wonder we could make them see and I would face this hunger till darkness comes calling back to me." "But you're not the one," said the Night to the Sun. "I turn around and I hope that when I look for you, you'll be there I should just hold you but I get tired and convince myself that if I let you go you'll be ok and I ask for your permission to be free I have this one condition, to be free."

THEY'RE LOOKING It's not you they're looking, they're looking for me so show them your skin where my hands used to be empty all of your drawers and hand them over the key let the dogs hurry past, set your sights to the sea 'cause it's not you they're looking, they're looking for me. She got on the bus and sat very still the driver looked torn like a five-dollar bill he drove straight through the night like you might think he'd see looked in the mirror and said meaningfully "I know this road won't you hold onto me?" And now there's a quiver on the ridge of her lips while her prophet takes hold of her drawn fingertips he said, "I've been to the temple and I've healed those who are blind but someone turned around and cried 'why are you so unkind, can't you see? I'll have to close them eventually.'" At last there's a room at the end of the hall at last there's a window and I can wave to you all and I've had to move slow for the first twenty years now I want my redemption to be heard in your ears and you'll see that all of this time you've been waiting for me. I loved every minute of this emotional mess and I loved every inch of your warm summer dress and I know that one day it may all run a-shore but don't fix your hair while I open the door 'cause it's not you they're looking, it's me they're looking for.

YOU'RE SO WRONG FOR ME You're so wrong for me and I couldn't love you more it feels like I'm falling from a height looking forward to the floor you're so wrong for me like early-morning blues I'm cursing the collision but longing for the bruise I am living in two halves and I don't know whose is whose. You're so wrong for me and I wouldn't love you less why you married someone else it's anybody's guess you're so wrong for me and if I had to choose I'd place a bet on happiness making sure I lose if there's a life for me without you I'd rather be excused. Breathe again, let your breast-bone heave you've been loved more than you believe breathe again, was it lost on me? Breathe and then I will watch you leave. You're so wrong for me and everybody knows there's my ring beside your bed near someone else's clothes you're so wrong for me, tell me is it true? 'Cause you look at me that way and I know that it’s no use I'm not the one you hoped for I'm the one you can't refuse. Breathe again, let your breast-bone heave you've been loved more than you believe breathe again, was it lost on me? Breathe and then I will watch you leave. Giuliano Nistri © 2013

FINALLY AWAKE Try as he will, still the simplest intention will be lost in the siege of her eyes the kind that she gives is a kind of attention that releases as much as it ties. He rubs-down his knuckles as day-reasoning buckles in the wake of another mistake now it's utterly clear she's the reason he's here he finally knows he's awake. Gone is the chill binding every decision the sun’s breezing in through the door they left hand-in-hand with the lightest provision needing far less and no more. Their house is now open with tours softly spoken some people come just for the sake to hear of the day a man did what he may and finally knows he’s awake. Giuliano Nistri © 2013
