Il Mantello E La Spiga - Lyrics by Battiato Franco


Lyrics
Sotto l'ombra sospiravipastore di ombre e di sotterranei segretiparlavi di una vita trascorsa.
Come sempre le foglie cadono d'autunno.
Intona i canti dei veggenticedi alla saggezzaalle scintille di fuochi omai spenti,regolati alle temperature e alle frescure delle notti:lascia tutto e seguiti.
Guarda le distese dei campi, perditi in essie non chiedere altro.
Lasci un'orma attraverso cui tu stessoti segui nel tempo e ti riconosci.
Correvi con la biga nei circhi.E fosti pure un'ape delicata,il gentile mantello che copri
` le spalle di qualcuno.
Lascia tutto e seguiti.I tuoi occhi dunque trascorrono svagatied ozi come una spiga.
Come sempre le foglie cadono d'autunno.
