The sky inside a room

italian, aperitif, spritz, lemon, happy

#week9

In these days I am letting emotions carry me by, therefore today I prefer someone else to speak out for me with a song.

The author is a very talented Italian rapper who goes by the name of Salmo, which means ‘psalm’. I had never listened to him up to a few days ago, when I discovered this song. I haven’t stopped listening to it ever since. Hope you will enjoy it.

TRANSLATED LYRICS

Yah, if I close my eyes it’s just to see you

In this movie there is you, hey

The credits are still, we’re the ones going down, hey

I have the sun in my face if you laugh, woh

You’re beautiful, even when you shout, woh

I swear, I can give you much more than what you underline in books, woh

Look what you do to me, naked in front of this public

I’m not the type and you know, love verses make me feel idiotic

It ends up with me punching doors

You say “you’re crazy”, but crazy about you

After we fuck, you come six times

What will the neighbors say about me?

You are the poem I’ve never written

The song that does not exist yet

The city I’ve never seen

You make all this shit look less sad

Sometimes I’m a monster, my heart’s a chalet

Cold as the place you really like and

Ink tears with the thunder

They ask about our love as with De André, eeh

I’ve closed the sky inside a room and it has got blue walls (hey)

I’ve lost my mind and the reason is you

It’s you that makes me crazy, yeah

You are making me crazy

You’re like the beat of my heart, we keep on

Baby please forgive me, I love hard

Shall we need space, turn around and get closer, then we

Back together, back together again

Hey, hey, I could watch you for hours

But today I can’t, tomorrow I swear

Iced hands on the heart

Hands on the neck, hands on the ass, haha

Excuse my classy touch, hey

But I believe earth is flat, hey

When you are here the world reverses its axis (hey)

And you slip into my arms

The heart stops, let’s change the batteries

These words are like rifles

A second passes between saying and dying

And a lifetime it’s not enough to make them understand, hey

Love makes you lose your perspective

It’s like hell but feathers rain down

I’m the guy who likes to be by himself

This blanket is not enough for two

It can be cold even on August 15th

And you’re on the other side of the world

I know it’s obvious to look at the stars

I live a second that lasts forever

I’ve closed the sky inside a room with blue walls (hey)

I’ve lost my mind and the reason is you

You that makes me crazy, yeah

You are making me crazy

You’re like the beat of my heart, we keep on

Baby please forgive me, I love hard

Shall we need space, turn around and get closer, then we

Back together, back together again

Listen how it goes, listen how it goes

The song I wrote for you

You did not expect it, and yet here it is

You did not expect it from someone like me, nah

ORIGINAL LYRICS

Yah, se chiudo gli occhi è solo per vederti

In questo film ci sei tu, ehi

I titoli di coda stanno fermi, siamo noi che andiamo giù, ehi

Ho il sole in faccia se ridi, woh

Sei bella pure se gridi, woh

Giuro, posso darti molto più di ciò che sottolinei nei libri, woh

Guarda che cosa mi fai, nudo davanti a ‘sto pubblico

Non sono il tipo lo sai, i versi d’amore mi fanno sentire uno stupido

Finisce che prendo a cazzotti le porte

Dici “sei pazzo”, ma pazzo di te

Dopo scopiamo, tu vieni sei volte

Cazzo diranno i vicini di me?

Sei la poesia che non ho scritto

La canzone che non esiste

La città che non ho visto

Fai sembrare tutta questa merda meno triste

A volte sono un mostro, il cuore chalet

Freddo come il posto che piace a te

Lacrime d’inchiostro con il tuono

Chiedono del nostro amore, De André, eeh

Ho chiuso il cielo nella stanza, le pareti blu (ehi)

Ho perso la ragione, la ragione sei tu

Che mi fai andare fuori, seh

Tu mi fai andare fuori

You’re like the beat of my heart, we keep on

Baby please forgive me, I love hard

Shall we need space, turn around and get closer, then we

Back together, back together again

Ehi, ehi, potrei guardarti per ore

Ma oggi non posso, domani lo giuro

Mani ghiacciate sul cuore

Mani sul collo, mani sul culo, ahah

Scusa il mio tocco di classe, ehi

Ma credo la terra sia piatta, ehi

Quando sei qui il mondo inverte il suo asse (ehi)

E scivoli tra le mie braccia

Il cuore si ferma, cambiamo le pile

Queste parole fan come fucili

Passa un secondo tra il dire e il morire

E non basta una vita per farle capire, ehi

L’amore fa perdere il lume

È come l’inferno ma piovono piume

Io sono il tipo che sta sulle sue

Questa coperta non basta per due

Può fare freddo anche il 15 agosto

E tu sei dall’altra parte del mondo

So che è scontato guardare le stelle

Vivo un secondo che dura per sempre

Ho chiuso il cielo nella stanza, le pareti blu (ehi)

Ho perso la ragione, la ragione sei tu

Che mi fai andare fuori, seh

Tu mi fai andare fuori

You’re like the beat of my heart, we keep on

Baby please forgive me I love hard

Shall we need space, turn around and get closer, then we

Back together, back together again

Senti come fa, senti come fa

La canzone che ho scritto per te

Non te l’aspettavi invece eccola qua

Non te l’aspettavi da uno come me, nah
