Lucio Battisti (RIP) - Le Tre Verita' ( The 3 Truths)

Recommended Posts

 

He sings / plays  3 diff. parts / characters ( 2 men , 1 woman)  in this song

 

 

 

 

 

It's his fault! It's his fault!
Believe me!
You weren't there... you weren't there
to defend me!
And his determination was stronger
than my will.
And the innocent one... and the innocent one
will pay.
I know you won't believe...
you won't believe me,
but it's his fault!
It's his fault!

 

 

I don't care if you
are going to drink false tears.
I can tell you they're salty,
I already drank them, by now.
Anyway, everything she says
is not real.
Her sweetness has been even stronger
than my honesty.
And now,
you're gonna believe her... you're gonna believe her.
Poor my fall friend, I know:
you're gonna believe her.

 

 

I don't know... I don't know
who I'd believe to.
I just know that... I just know that,
one of... just one of
the three of you
is gonna die!
She was mine... she isn't anymore.
Now, none knows who she belongs to...
Go away!
Go away!
Move!

It's not Francesca

 

On drums Franz Di Cioccio...Later to found Premiata Forneria Marconi, one of the most famous Italian bands...

 

 

 

 

 

You're wrong, the one you saw is not
is not Francesca
she's always at home waiting for me
it's not Francesca
if there was a man, then
no, it can't be her
Francesca never asked for more
who's wrong, I'm sure, it's you
Francesca never asked for more
'cause she lives for me
 

Like the other one, she's blond but
it's not Francesca
she was dressed in red, I know
it's not Francesca
if she was hugging(him) then
no, it can't be her
 

Francesca never asked for more
who's wrong, I'm sure, it's you
Francesca never asked for more
'cause she lives for me
she lives for me
she lives for me

Loving Each Other A Bit

 

 

 

 

Loving each other a bit
is like drinking
it’s easier
to breath
it’s enough to look at each other and then
come closer a bit
and not letting go ever
to be afraid, no no!


Loving a bit
is like blooming a bit
it helps you know,
not to die
whitout hiding
showing it
is possible to escape
loneliness

 

But, but, liking each other no
to take part into this
is difficult
almost like flying
how many obstacles


and how much suffering and also
discouragements and tears
in order to become ourselves
really ourselves
united
indivisible
close together
but unattainable

 

But, but, liking each other no
to take part into this
is difficult
almost like flying

in order to become ourselves
really ourselves
united
indivisible
close together
but unattainable

Alone ( in the plural...ie. 2 people alone)...Solo - alone (singular)...Soli - plural ( more than one) ...

 

Soli means also "suns"  ....Singular is "sole" sun

My God, no -  Recorded live in studio

 

The lyrics describe the excitement he's going through as he's  waiting for  his woman ( not knowing yet if she will arrive or not, doubt eating him alive .... the  doorbell ringing already thrills him immensely, etc) to come having dinner at his place and then what goes on during and after dinner...The energy and feel are obvious....No translation necessary....Music ( and his voice, sound) talks clearly enough....

 

 

 

 

At one point (almost near the end...all track was recorded live in studio with improvisations) Lucio shouts " Baldan, Baldan, Baldan" ...He is addressing / urging the organ player Dario Baldan Bembo to start his solo

 

Here too   drummer is Franz Di Cioccio ( who used to be Lucio's sessionman in many albums)...Later to found "Premiata Forneria Marconi".....One of the most famous Italian Bands

 

Infact all of (what years later will become) PFM is playing in the track above......plus Dario Baldan Bembo on organ  ...And Alberto Radius on guitar ( band "Formula 3")

I Shall Live (Without You)

 

 

 

 

 

That one doesn't die  for love is supposedly a great truth

so my sweet  love here is what will happen to me from tomorrow

 

I will  live without you

although I don't know  yet how I'll live.

 

Without you,  I without you

 

Alone I will go on and i will sleep, I'll  wake up,

will walk, I will work,

I'll do anything ,

Yes, I'll do something,

something I will sure do

 

cry

yes, I'll  cry.

 

And if you come back into my mind I'll just think that you're not there

 

That I'm suffering unnecessarily because I know, yes I know

 I do know that  you will not come back

 

Without you, I without you

 

Alone I'll go on and I'll sleep ,I'll  wake up,

I will walk, I will work, 

I'll do anything , I will do  something,

 

Yes, I'll do something

 

something I will do  for sure:

 

cry , yes, I will cry., I'll  cry ...

...And I think of you

 

 

 

 

I work ....and  think of you
come back home ....and  think of you
I call her, and think of you
 
How are you, and  think of you
Where are we going, and  think of you
I smile to her with my eyes down, and think of you
 
I dont know with who you're now
I dont know what are you doing
but I know for sure what are you thinking of
 
The town is too big
for the two people, that like us
dont hope but are seekng each other.. seeking
 
Sorry it's late and  think of you
I follow you and  think of you
I havent been amusing and  think of you
 
I'm in the dark and  think of you
I close my eyes and  think of you
I dont sleep and  think of you

      Here where the sea shines
      and the wind is strong
      on an old terrace
      infront of the Gulf of Sorrento (near Naples)
      a man hugs
      a girl
      after he has cried
      Afterwards he clears his voice
      and begins again to sing
       
      I care too much for u(Te voglio bene assaje)
      but, u know, a great deal
      at his point it has become a chain(e' una catena ormai)
      that melts the blood in the *
      veins u know
      He saw the lights in the middle of the sea
      he thought of the nights in America**
      but they where only the lights from the boats***
      and the white trace of a propeller
      He felt the pain of music
      got up from the piano

      But when he saw the moon
      that was coming out from behind a cloud
      he thought that even death was sweeter
      He looked into the eyes of the girl
      those eyes green like the sea
      then suddenly a tear came out
      and he believed he was soffocating
       
      I care too much for u(Te voglio bene assaje)

      Force of the lirica where****
      every drama is a false(ogni drama e' un falso)
      which with a little bit of make-up(che con un po' di trucco)
      and with the art of mimic
      u can become someone else

      but 2 eyes that are watching u(ma due occhi che di guardano)
      so close and different(eyes of different people)(cosi' vicini e vari)
      they make you forget the words(ti fan scordare le parole)
      i get mixed up
      so everything becomes small
      even the nights there in America
      u turn and see your own life(ti volti e vedi la tua vita)
      like the trace of a propeller
      but its the life that ends
      But he didn't think that much
      the opposite he was feeling already happy
      and started again to sing

      From  "Suddance" 1978
       
       
      This one and the next clip containing more songs are all sung in Neapolitan dialect...Unable so far to find an online translation
       
       
       
       
       
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osanna
       
       
       
      Review by andrea
      In 1977, after the negative experiences of Uno and Città Frontale, founder members Lino Vairetti, Danilo Rustici and Massimo Guarino reformed Osanna with a new line up featuring Enzo Petrone on bass and Fabrizio D'Angelo Lancellotti on keyboards and synthesizers. "Suddance" was released in 1978, when the Halcyon Days of prog were coming to an end... This album could be very disappointing for old fans since Osanna here were trying to find a new musical direction blending rock, soul and jazz with the traditions of Naples, but in my opinion the result is not bad at all...
       
      "Suddance" is very different from Osanna's early works (the album features also some guest musicians like Benni Caiazzo on sax and Antonio Spagnolo on electric violin), nonetheless here you can find at least one outstanding track, the suggestive and melancholic "A zingara" (The Gipsy woman) featuring a mysterious mood... Lyrics are sung in the dialect of Naples and describe the desperate life of gipsy woman with "music and hope in her heart" who is rejected by the society... "She's a gipsy and she causes fear / That's why everybody avoids her in the street / She is so desperate to bang her head against the wall / But every time she asks for help people pretend they don't see her..."...
       
      There are other good tracks, like the opener "Ce vulesse" and the instrumental title track, more in a jazz rock vein, or the long and desperate "Chiuso qui" (the only one sung in Italian and featuring "claustrophobic" lyrics that describe the feelings of an inmate)... However, the overall sound is closer to the genre that is known as "Neapolitan Power" (very successful in the early Eighties and spearheaded by Pino Daniele) than to the peculiar prog of the early Osanna albums...
       
      Although it is not an essential album, at length "Suddance" is a good work released by an excellent group of musicians who were trying to explore new musical paths to go further... It's a pity that they had to stop!

      Quando la sera me ne torno a casa
      When I come home in the evening
      non ho neanche voglia di parlare
      I'm not even in the mood to talk
      tu non guardarmi con quella tenerezza
      Don't look at me with that tenderness
      come fossi un bambino che ritorna deluso
      like a child that comes back disappointed
      si lo so che questa non è certo la vita
      Yes, I know this surely ain't the life
      che hai sognato un giorno per noi
      you once dreamed about for us
      vedrai, vedrai
      you'll see, you'll see
      vedrai che cambierà
      you'll see it will change
      forse non sarà domani
      maybe not tomorrow
      ma un bel giorno cambierà
      but someday it will change

      vedrai, vedrai
      you'll see, you'll see
      non son finito sai
      I am not done here, you know
      non so dirti come e quando
      I don't know how or when
      ma vedrai che cambierà
      but you'll see it will change
      preferirei sapere che piangi
      I'd rather know you're crying
      che mi rimproveri di averti delusa
      than to reproach me that I've let you down
      e non vederti sempre così dolce
      and not to see you this sweet again
      accettare da me tutto quello che viene
      accepting anything coming from me
      mi fa disperare il pensiero di te
      I get crazy thinking of you
      e di me che non so darti di più
      and thinking that I don't know how to give you more
      vedrai, vedrai
      you'll see, you'll see
      vedrai che cambierà
      you'll see it will change
      forse non sarà domani
      maybe not tomorrow
      ma un bel giorno cambierà
      but someday it will change
      vedrai, vedrai
      you'll see, you'll see
      no, non son finito sai
      no, I'm not done here
      non so dirti come e quando
      I don't know how or when
      ma un bel giorno cambierà.
      but someday it will change.
