Cos'hai nella testa? (English translation)

What's in Your Head?

What's in your head?
There's always something that goes by and stays.
Three thousand thoughts and one window
looking out over a harbour in Hawaii.
 
What's in your head?
Only your right hemisphere is working.
You only remember half of the things you do
and you don't know it.
 
What are you doing
inside a cloud of problems?
You look for an excuse and leave
through that window.
With a jump, you take off
and, flying higher than the good or evil,
you stop to look at a star, to see if it falls or stays up there.
 
What's in your head?
There's always someone who talks and doesn't think.
Let's walk together down the street we've still got to walk.
It might take us to Hawaii.
 
You'll live inside a cloud.
Good luck and you leave
through that window.
With a jump, you take off
and, flying higher than the good or evil,
you stop to look at a star, to see if it falls or stays up there.
 
You... what's in your head?
There's always something that goes by and stays.
Three thousand thoughts but inside that head
you have something good.
 
Thanks!
