Something I wrote in Brooklyn, NY. I walked a lot, listening to my favorite songs. I imagined myself dropping two lines to someone about how I was feeling. That someone was Elliott Smith. This is my humble tribute to one of my favorite artists. One of the best ever. I recorded the voice in Boston, in an apartment on Harrison Ave., and overdubbed the rest back in Italy, in Latina. No song will ever be enough to remember ES, but all I can do is just trying to explain what his music meant to me.


Time's straight passing by
someone knows all this good life's riches
everyday they got this softly served
on silver spoon

Pleasure kindly smiles
keep trust the finest words and beauty
there's not gonna be who come here
waiting on you hand and foot

and then again
I'm trying to take back chances
trying to always keep in mind
life's the widest windy sky
but still at times
i feel drifting by, oh rainy days!

Tiny trembling lights
sometimes you just can face the sorrow
everyone seems so comfortable
that's not my role

Orpheus sang a silly song
way down hope and delusion
"we're all gonna make the same mistake
a thousand times again"

It's hard to tell,
I'm trying to take back chances
trying to never let go by
all the good things for a while
but still at times
I will ever long for a walk in the sun
just like everyone

One day I'll throw a line right over
I'll maybe miss the rain, sometimes
