As Moths / "Come Delle Falene"

Often we take flight with wings of wax
that will melt like snow at spring;
We shelter in dreams, to escape from boredom,
often confusing illusion with joy.

How many times we play like true actors,
Disguising at our best our inner tides of feelings
To remove afterward the mask in a dressing room,
in the arms of a caring cherub.

We move towards tomorrow as moths,
without worry of the pitfalls and sorrows.
We get lost between the notes of a Pied Piper,
who often leads us to a tragic fate

When we understand that life is in our hands,
the days of youth long gone,
we try to fix our old mistakes,
hoping that some best days still remain.

Spesso prendiamo il volo con ali di cera
che si scioglieranno come neve a primavera;
ci rifugiamo nei sogni per sfuggire alla noia,
spesso confondiamo un'illusione con la gioia.

Quante volte recitiamo come dei veri attori,
dissimuliamo al meglio i nostri moti interiori
per poi togliere la maschera in un camerino,
tra le braccia di un premuroso cherubino.

andiamo verso il domani come delle falene,
senza preoccuparci dele insidie e delle pene.
Ci perdiamo tra le note di un pifferaio magico
che spesso ci guida verso un destino tragico

quando capiamo che la vita è nelle nostre mani,
i giorni della giovinezza sono ormai lontani;
cerchiamo di rimediare ai nostri vecchi errori,
sperando che ci restino dei giorni migliori.
