Amanda Lear

Ancient love, friend of mine
Radio Nostalgia love
I barely think about you
I fed you to the vultures,
to the Holocaust and to the sailors
Atomic love, Enola Gay
 
My friend the horror,
my mistake
that I didn't even tell you goodbye,
I never told you why
that Sunday I flushed
the photo where we were holding tight
 
it's my fault
they told me they saw you
at a rock concert
puking your guts and soul*
hugging an asshole
a director, a choreographer
or whatever,
just another job, a drug
to deceive ourselves and believe that we're humans
 
(you used to say)
I wanna be Amanda Lear
only the time of an LP
side A, side B
of course we're not immortals
we burn and it's better this way
nothing last forever
not even music
 
Lost love, soul of mine
Symphony n 9 love
I would like to know how you are doing
if, as you write, everything is fine
and if now you really know
that I've turned into a monster
 
it's your fault
They saw me in a dark alley
making out with some bitch
a girl, a painter
or whatever
you cheap pessimism
had clearly made some converts
 
(you used to say)
I wanna be Amanda Lear
only the time of an LP
side A, side B
nothing last forever
it ends and it's better this way
Amanda Lear
only the time of an LP
side A, side B
nothing last forever
let alone you and me
