Gloria

Gloria,
manchi tu nell'aria,
manchi ad una mano
che lavora piano
manchi a questa bocca
che cibo più non tocca.
È sempre questa storia
che lei la chiamo Gloria.
Gloria, sui tuoi fianchi
la mattina nasce il sole,
entra odio ed esce amore
dal nome Gloria.
 
Gloria,
manchi tu nell'aria,
manchi come il sale,
manchi più del sole.
Sciogli questa neve
che soffoca il mio petto,
t'aspetto Gloria.
 
Gloria, (Gloria),
chiesa di campagna, (Gloria),
acqua nel deserto, (Gloria),
lascio aperto il cuore (Gloria).
Scappa senza far rumore
dal lavoro, dal tuo letto,
dai gradini di un altare,
ti aspetto, Gloria.
 
~~~
 
Ahaha ahaha
Gloria,
per chi accende il giorno
e invece di dormire
con la memoria torna
a un tuffo nei papaveri
in una terra libera,
per chi respira nebbia,
per chi respira rabbia,
per me che senza Gloria,
con te nuda sul divano
faccio stelle di cartone
pensando a Gloria.
 
Gloria,
manchi tu nell'aria,
manchi come il sale,
manchi più del sole.
Sciogli questa neve
che soffoca il mio petto,
t'aspetto Gloria.
 
Gloria, (Gloria),
chiesa di campagna (Gloria),
acqua nel deserto (Gloria),
lascio aperto il cuore (Gloria).
Scappa senza far rumore
dal lavoro, dal tuo letto,
dai gradini di un altare,
ti aspetto, Gloria.

Gloria

Versions: #1#2#3#4
Gloria, you are missing in the air,
missing in my hand
that moves slowly.
You are missing from this mouth
that food no longer touches.
And always this story,
that she is called Gloria.
Gloria, on your hips
the morning sun arises.
Hatered enters and love escapes
with the name of Gloria.
Gloria, you are missing in the air.
Miss you like salt.
Miss you more than sun.
Melt this snow
that suffocates my chest.
I await Gloria.
Gloria; church of the village,
water of the desert.
I leave my heart open,
she goes away without a sound
from work, from your bed,
from the steps of the altar.
I await Gloria.
Gloria, for whom the day awaits
instead of sleeping.
With her memory returns
a touch of the poppies in a free world.
By whom fog breathes.
By whom fury breathes.
For me, all that, without Gloria.
With you nude on the sofa
you make stars look as cardboard.
Thinking of Gloria.
 
Thanks!
