V.I.S. (Very Important Songs)

Old And Wise

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

As far as my eyes can see
There are Shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to Know
You’ve always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go
And oh when I’m old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn Winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be Lifted from my eyes
Oh when I’m old and wise
As far as my Eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You’ve always Shared my darkest hours
I’ll miss you when I go
And oh, when I’m old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that You were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I’m Old and wise
As far as my eyes can see

 

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND


 When you’re down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend
If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you’ll hear me knocking at your door
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
Ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend
When people can be so cold
They’ll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don’t you  let them
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend
 

Open Arms

If love is what you want
Baby here I am
If tenderness is what you need
I’ve got that to give
If you need some affection
Baby these are open arms
Open arms, open arms, open arms, open arms
You come hem you’ve had a hard day
Every door you tried to open
Was closing in your face
I’m right here I’ll be right here
I’ll embrace you
I’ll be open with my heart
I’ll let you in
I’ll be open with my thoughts
I’ll be your best friend
If you need some attention
Baby these are open arms
Open arms, open arms, open arms, open arms
Every corner you turn
Trouble come your way
But when you get home
I’ll try to be there
And I’ll embrace you
These are
These are
These are
Open arms
If time is what you need
Baby I’ll stop the clocks
If you’re looking for something
Maybe I’ve got what you want
If there’s one thing to remember
Don’t forget that these are open arms
Open arms, open arms, open arms, open arms
These are
These are
These are
Open arms 

LA CURA


 Ti proteggerò dalle paure delle ipocondrie,
dai turbamenti che da oggi incontrerai per la tua via.
Dalle ingiustizie e dagli inganni del tuo tempo,
dai fallimenti che per tua natura normalmente attirerai.
Ti solleverò dai dolori e dai tuoi sbalzi d’umore,
dalle ossessioni delle tue manie.
Supererò le correnti gravitazionali,
lo spazio e la luce
per non farti invecchiare.
E guarirai da tutte le malattie,
perché sei un essere speciale,
ed io, avrò cura di te.
Vagavo per i campi del Tennessee
(come vi ero arrivato, chissà).
Non hai fiori bianchi per me?
Più veloci di aquile i miei sogni
attraversano il mare.

Ti porterò soprattutto il silenzio e la pazienza.
Percorreremo assieme le vie che portano all’essenza.
I profumi d’amore inebrieranno i nostri corpi,
la bonaccia d’agosto non calmerà i nostri sensi.
Tesserò i tuoi capelli come trame di un canto.
Conosco le leggi del mondo, e te ne farò dono.
Supererò le correnti gravitazionali,
lo spazio e la luce per non farti invecchiare.
TI salverò da ogni malinconia,
perché sei un essere speciale ed io avrò cura di te…
io sì, che avrò cura di te

Apron strings
 
Apron strings
hanging empty
crazy things
my body tells me
i want someone to tie to my
apron strings
apron strings
waiting for you
pretty things
that i could call you
i want someone to tie to my lonely
apron strings
you baby looks just like you when you were young
and he looks at me  without the shine
then I wish that here in mine
then I go on mine, mine
apron strings
cold and lonely
for time brings
thoughts that only
will be quiet when someone clings to my
apron strings
and i’ll be perfect to my  way
when you cry i’ll be there
i’ll sing to you and comb your hair
all your troubles i will share
for apron strings
can be used for other things
than what they’re meant for
and you’d be happy wrapped in my
apron strings
