about

A volte guardandosi indietro può capitare di vedere come ci sia stata grazia e sofferenza nella propria vita. Se ci può essere un modo per disfarsi del proprio fardello... ecco di cosa racconta questa canzone. Realizzare che ogni canzone può essere il modo di elaborare una confessione e con questa esorcizzare la morte. È la luce che viene scavata fuori. “Collezionando pietre e ossa, il passato sembra essere come la polvere che mi resta”.

Sometimes looking back at your life you can find grace and sad things. How can a man lay his burden down...this is what this song is talking about. A song can be the way to make a confession and fight death. Dig the light out of the ground. “Collecting stones and bones / past is like the dust I own”.

lyrics

(Laino / Alfonsi)

Seems the past is knocking on my door today I'm walking
these dusty roads are going to make me think
The taste of what I once was made of
is running through my skin and open my eyes
Now I see all the sad things and all the grace
has grown from my head down to my heart

This is how I feel, today
Sad and grateful, today
Collecting stones and bones
Past is like the dust I own

Would you please tell me how did you feel when
I betrayed you my friend just because
The place where I used to hide myself
is getting smaller and smaller once again
Sometimes I feel the sun is shining
over my aching shoulders and I can live again

Don't know how I feel, today
It's kind of sad and grateful, today
Collecting stones and bones
Past is like the dust I own

There's an empty bottle and another one's full of wine
There are feelings that sometimes it's hard to keep hiding
I counted all my days just trying to grow old
but I’ve found a way today I can use to rise above
I feel the past is covering my shoulders like dust (x2)
