Andrea got lost, got lost and can’t come back
Andrea had love
black curls
Andrea had sorrow
black curls.
On the paper was written that he had died
on the flag
was written and the signature was golden
it was the signature of a king
killed on the mountains
near Trento
by machine-gun fire.
Forest’s eyes
farmer of the realm
French silhouette
forest’s eyes
soldier of the realm
French silhouette
and Andrea lost, lost the love
the rarest pearl
and Andrea has sorrow in his mouth, in his mouth
the darkest pearl.
Andrea picked, picked violets
by the sides of the well
Andrea was throwing black curls
in the well’s ring
the bucket told him: “Sir,
the well’s deep
deeper than the bottom of the eyes
of the night of tears".
He said: "it’s enough for me, it’s enough for me if it is
deeper than me".
