Nothing else matters.

Il 10 di questo mese è uscito l’album “The Metallica Blacklist”, un album nato sotto l’egida degli stessi Metallica, che raccoglie una moltitudine di versione dei brani contenuti nel loro celeberrimo “Black album” (che proprio quest’anno compie 30 anni). Questa che segue è la cover che Dave Gahan ha fatto di “Nothing else matters”. Una versione che sembra voler cullare l’anima di chi l’ascolta.

Ringrazio la mia amica CristinaP. per avermi segnalato questa meraviglia. 😊

“Nothing else matters”

So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words, I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close, no matter how far
It couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words, I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know, yeah, yeah

So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No, nothing else matters.

“Hero”

I am so high, I can hear heaven
I am so high, I can hear heaven
Whoa, but heaven, no, heaven don’t hear me

And they say
That a hero could save us
I’m not gonna stand here and wait
I’ll hold on to the wings of the eagles
Watch as we all fly away

Someone told me
Love would all save us
But, how can that be
Look what love gave us

A world full of killing
And blood spilling
That world never came

And they say
That a hero could save us
I’m not gonna stand here and wait
I’ll hold on to the wings of the eagles
Watch as we all fly away

Now that the world isn’t ending
It’s love that I’m sending to you
It isn’t the love of a hero
And that’s why I fear it won’t do

And they say
That a hero could save us
I’m not gonna stand here and wait
I’ll hold on to the wings of the eagles
Watch as we all fly away

And they’re watching us
They’re watching us
As we all fly away

And they’re watching us
They’re watching us
As we all fly away

And they’re watching us
They’re watching us
As we all fly away

Non parli mai

“Non parli mai”

Non parli mai perché 
se c’è un motivo dai prova a dirmelo 
non chiuderti così! 
Non parli mai perché 
un po’ ti invidio sai 
in quel silenzio chissà che cosa c’è? 
Non parli mai va bè!! 
sarà che sei diversa o che stai troppo in te 
dovresti uscire un po’ 
e scrivi mille parole in mille lettere e poiti addormenti pensando se spedirle o no 
e ti spaventi dei sogni che non hai fatto mai 
e poi ti svegli non è mattina senza un caffè 
Non parli mai pero’ mi affaccio nei tuoi occhi 
c’è un universo in te e un sole solo tuo 
Non parli mai e allora io ascolto il tuo silenzio 
è come una canzone arriva chi la vuole 
ho sbagliato a dirti che stai troppo in te 
non uscire stai lì che hai tutto quello che vuoi 
non parlare c’è chi può amarti anche così 
scrivi e se ti và vorrei una lettera per me 
con tutto quello che vuoi…. 
con tutto quello che sei…. 
con tutto quello che hai…. 
scrivi mille parole in mille lettere e poi 
ti addormenti pensando se spedirle o no 
e ti spaventi dei sogni che non hai fatto mai 
e poi ti svegli non è mattina senza un caffè 
Non parli mai e allora io ascolto il tuo silenzio 
è come una canzone arriva chi la vuole

They dance alone

“They Dance Alone”

Why are there women here dancing on their own?
Why is there this sadness in their eyes?
Why are the soldiers here
Their faces fixed like stone?
I can’t see what it is that they despise

They’re dancing with the missing
They’re dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
Their anguish is unsaid
They’re dancing with their fathers
They’re dancing with their sons
They’re dancing with their husbands
They dance alone They dance alone

It’s the only form of protest they’re allowed
I’ve seen their silent faces scream so loud
If they were to speak these words they’d go missing too
Another woman on a torture table what else can they do
They’re dancing with the missing
They’re dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
Their anguish is unsaid
They’re dancing with their fathers
They’re dancing with their sons
They’re dancing with their husbands
They dance alone They dance alone

One day we’ll dance on their graves
One day we’ll sing our freedom
One day we’ll laugh in our joy
And we’ll dance
One day we’ll dance on their graves
One day we’ll sing our freedom
One day we’ll laugh in our joy
And we’ll dance

Ellas danzan con los desaparecidos
Ellas danzan con los muertos
Ellas danzan con amores invisibles
Ellas danzan con silenciosa angustia
Danzan con sus padres
Danzan con sus hijos
Danzan con sus esposos
Ellas danzan solas
Danzan solas

Hey Mr. Pinochet
You’ve sown a bitter crop
It’s foreign money that supports you
One day the money’s going to stop
No wages for your torturers
No budget for your guns
Can you think of your own mother
Dancing with her invisible son
They’re dancing with the missing
They’re dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
Their anguish is unsaid
They’re dancing with their fathers
They’re dancing with their sons
They’re dancing with their husbands
They dance alone
They dance alone

Loving you is sweeter than ever

“Loving you is sweeter than ever”

I remember yet before we met
When every night and day
I had to live the life of a lonely one.
And I remember meeting you,
Discovering love could be so true
When shared by two, ‘stead of only one.
When you said you loved me
We could not be parted.
Said, I built my world around you
And I’m truly glad I found you

Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.
Each night I pray we’ll never part
Because the love within my heart
Grows stronger from day to day.
Best I try, hard I try
To reassure and satisfy.
You know I’d be lost if you went away.

Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, I know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Don’t you know my baby there.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.

“Dirty Diana”

Oh, no, oh, no, no.

You’ll never make me stay
So take your weight off of me
I know your every move
So won’t you just let me be

I’ve been here times before
But I was too blind to see
That you seduce every man
This time you won’t seduce me

She’s saying, “That’s OK.
Hey, baby, do what you please.
I have the stuff that you want.
I am the thing that you need.”

She looked me deep in the eyes
She’s touchin’ me so to start
She says, “There’s no turnin’ back.”
She trapped me in her heart

Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, let me be!

Oh, no, oh, no, oh, no.

She likes the boys in the band
She knows when they come to town
Every musician’s fan after the curtain comes down
She waits at backstage doors
For those who have prestige
Who promise fortune and fame,
A life that’s so carefree

She’s saying, “That’s OK.
Hey, baby, do what you want.
I’ll be your night lovin’ thing.
I’ll be the freak you can taunt.
And I don’t care what you say.
I wanna go too far.
I’ll be your everything.
If you make me a star.”

Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana.

Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana.

Diana! Diana! Dirty Diana!
It’s Diana.

No

She said, “I have to go home
‘Cause I’m real tired you see,
But I hate sleepin’ alone.
Why don’t you come with me?”
I said, “My baby’s at home.
She’s probably worried tonight.
I didn’t call on the phone
To say that I’m alright.”

Diana walked up to me,
She said, “I’m all yours tonight.”
At that I ran to the phone
Saying, “Baby, I’m alright.”
I said, “But unlock the door,
‘Cause I forgot the key,”
She said, “He’s not coming back
Because he’s sleeping with me.”

Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no

Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana.

Come on!

A modo tuo

“A modo tuo”

Sarà difficile diventar grande 
Prima che lo diventi anche tu 
Tu che farai tutte quelle domande 
Io fingerò di saperne di più 
Sarà difficile 
Ma sarà come deve essere 
Metterò via i giochi 
Proverò a crescere

Sarà difficile chiederti scusa 
Per un mondo che è quel che è 
Io nel mio piccolo tento qualcosa 
Ma cambiarlo è difficile 
Sarà difficile 
Dire tanti auguri a te 
A ogni compleanno 
Vai un po’ più via da me

A modo tuo 
Andrai, a modo tuo 
Camminerai e cadrai, ti alzerai 
Sempre a modo tuo

Sarà difficile vederti da dietro 
Sulla strada che imboccherai 
Tutti i semafori 
Tutti i divieti 
E le code che eviterai 
Sarà difficile 
Mentre piano ti allontanerai 
A cercar da sola 
Quella che sarai

A modo tuo 
Andrai, a modo tuo 
Camminerai e cadrai, ti alzerai 
Sempre a modo tuo 
Sarà difficile 
Lasciarti al mondo 
E tenere un pezzetto per me 
E nel bel mezzo del tuo girotondo 
Non poterti proteggere 
Sarà difficile 
Ma sarà fin troppo semplice 
Mentre tu ti giri 
E continui a ridere

A modo tuo 
Andrai, a modo tuo 
Camminerai e cadrai, ti alzerai 
Sempre a modo tuo

Where did your heart go missing?

Where did your heart go missing?

Love don’t come so easily
This doesn’t have to end in tragedy
I have you and you have me
We’re one and a million
Why can’t you see?

I’m waitin’, waitin’ for nothin’
You’re leavin’, leavin’ me hangin’
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?
I treat you like a princess
But your life is just one big mess
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?

YeahI meant every word I said
I never was lyin’ when we talked in bed
I’m retracin’ every step in my head
What did I miss back then?
I was so, so misledI’m waitin’, waitin’ for nothin’
You’re leavin’, leavin’ me hangin’
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?
I treat you like a princess
But your life is just one big mess
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?

I don’t understand
How could you forget what we had?
It’s so wrongI’m waitin’, waitin’ for nothin’
You’re leavin’, leavin’ me hangin’
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?
I treat you like a princess
But your life is just one big mess
When did your heart go missin’?
When did your heart go missin’?

Things were so good
We had a little dream
A little dream together
Buy a house, settle down, do our thing
But you disappeared on me
And your heart, your heart went missin’
I don’t know how to find it, I don’t know where it is
I don’t know where your heart went
It was here just the other day
Now it’s gone
I’m gonna call the police
Call the investigator, the heart investigator

Return to innocence

“Return to innocence”


Love
Devotion
Feeling
Emotion
Don’t be afraid to be weak
Don’t be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
The return to innocence
And if you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny
Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to yourself
The return to innocence
That’s return to innocence.
