TRACK: I Giorni
I won’t write any fancy message about your wonderful talents to play music, nor the gift you have to put together notes so it sounds wonderful, because even though it’s part of all the things I would like to tell you, it’s not the most important. THe most important is that your song, using ways only the greatest knows, touching me inside, and, like a seed in a fertile field, grew in me, made me better, stronger, more aware of what rounds us everyday. You might touch everybody who hears your song, this isn’t what matters to me, because you learnt me something, you learnt me how to live, how to imagine, how to react and how to dream, you learnt me what the others could only tryto explain, like a sword, full of grace and justice, you pierced the dark mist which had been rounding me for years, decades, centuries, and maybe milleniums, when my spirit was only a smoky figure wandering through eternity, lost and blind. I won’t say your work is perfect, because nothing can be, but this isn’t important, because as you maybe know, perfection doesn’t exist, you can be close but never touch it, but I will say that you aren’t just a hero, a prophet or any of these, because your song shows way more than that, more than this figure, full of good thoughts, distant, but here, because you act like a friend, a person that helps people around him, a person that won’t just sit and tell the way he learnt, but a person who will understand and speak, a person who won’t learn by heart a lign, but who will speak with his heart. Of course, wyou aren’t my friend, but it’s a feeling I have when I listen to this song, that there is someone close to me telling me how to resolve very problem I could be imagining. All that is really what I think each time I listen to I Giorni, the Days that pass, leaving us alone, trying to understand when we aren’t even close, the Days fleeing as we try to catch them to stop the time and live forever in the moment, the very moment where everything is alright, where we are so happy it’s ready to burst. I may not be a great philosoph like Socrat, a famous poet like Shakespeare or even a wonderful composer like you, I’m just who I am, just another person who will tell you how good your music is.
This is all I will say because, to me, nothing was left unsaid.
