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

      The sea in winter
      is just a movie in black and white seen on TV.
      And inward,
      some cloud from the sky going down.
      Wet sand,
      a letter that the wind is taking away,
      invisible points chased by dogs,
      tired whirls of old  seagulls.
      And me  staying  here looking  for a cafe..

      The sea in winter
      is a concept  thought does not consider .
      It 's barely modern,
      it's something that no one ever wants.
      Hotels closed,
      advert posters already worn out
      cars trace grooves on roads
      where rain does not fall in the summer
      And I can not even talk to myself.

      Sea .... nobody ever comes here to drag me away.
      Sea .... nobody ever comes here to keep us company.
      Sea ... I can not stand seeing you like this because
      this wind stirs me too,
      stirs me too.
       
       the cold weather will come to pass
      and the beach will slowly  acquire color
      The radio and the newspapers
      and meaningless music will spread '.
      New adventures,
      lit-up nightclubs full of lies.
      But around evening, a strange concert
      and a  beach  umbrella that stays open.
      I dive  perplexed into already lived moments.

      Sea .... nobody ever comes here to drag me away.
      Sea .... nobody ever comes here to keep us company.
      Sea .... I can not stand seeing you like this because
      this wind stirs me too,
      stirs me too.....
