Nonno Hollywood (English translation)

English translation

Grandpa Hollywood

Certain things hurt
You can hold them back at all
There's no way to change
What doesn't go well for you
They say that with time everything passes,
But when is it that it passes?
Because it doesn't pass me
 
And right now I remember
Every time that you laughed
Every time that you stopped along the street and argued
With the people at the intersections
Who honked at you
 
Grandpa, you've left me in a world of piles
Shopping centers in place of courtyards
A generation with new discourses
They speak English more than our dialects
I miss your whistles while you're peeing
I miss the Livorno that you can tell stories of
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
And I don't know
 
How beautiful is the countryside, and how beautiful it is to drink wine
How many women have we seen, lowering the car window
The richness is in the simple...simple...
In the simple smile in a day that's not worth anything
It seems a bit like the second time
Of a finale to forget
Like a taxi at the station that you can't reserve
We're hostages of a net that doesn't catch fish...
But catches us
 
Grandpa, I always dream before sleeping
I search to find a way to understand
We run among the smiles of the straightened collars
But if we fall to the ground, then they're our fucks (to give)
Life is now a bridge that can collapse on us
Life is a new idol to get rid of
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep
I don't know
 
And then
I hold on tight to your advice
Because you know that it's never easy here
For those who face the other way, still
 
And then
For every time that I'll want to hear you
I'll close my eyes on this reality
 
Grandpa, you've left me in a world of piles
A generation that I don't know how to listen to
But deep down we're stories with a thousand details
Weak and beautiufl among our errors
I miss your whistles while you're peeing
I miss the Livorno that you can tell stories of
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
 
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
Tonight I close my eyes, but I won't sleep,
I won't sleep, I won't sleep
And I don't know
