No pain. The world is a wonderful whisper for those who can listen, if necessary in silence. (jumbolo)

Quasi amante



Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you'd never ever forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So now you're gone and I'm haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy
To walk right in and out of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
===========================
"I should have known you would bring me heartache/almost lovers always do". Che parole sagge, e al tempo stesso alberoniane, nel senso di ovvie al cento per cento. Epperò, noi romanticoni, ci caschiamo sempre.

Per fortuna, è qualche anno che non ci casco. Non è detto che sia un bene, lo so. Vabbè, non la voglio fare troppo lunga. Stasera sono in vena, e non è detto che lo sarò tra tre mesi (sto scrivendo queste righe il 31 ottobre 2015), quindi dedico questa bella canzone, della quale mi innamorai subito al primo ascolto, a tutti i miei almost lover. Avrei dovuto sapere che mi avreste portato solo mal di cuore, i quasi amanti lo fanno sempre. Eppure, vi ho amato ugualmente, mie quasi amanti. Voi no, ma io si. E, in un certo qual modo, continuerò a farlo. Almost lovers always do.
