A S

Ci sono giorni in cui ti svegli e comprendi di essere solo. Che la persona con la quale hai camminato assieme da otto anni, non solo lo ha fatto di controvoglia ma ti odia perché le hai imposto questa condivisione.

Mi sono svegliato con l’odio accanto, palpabile e tangile. E dici: ma perché? Possibile che fossi stato così cieco da non vedere?

Non lo so, può darsi.

Mi spaventa non tanto la consapevolezza di essere odiati, ma il fatto che ti cadono accuse pesanti come macigni.

Volevi la felicità e ti ritrovi con il rancore, speravi di adempiere agli obblighi coniugali invece ti scontri contro un orgoglio tenace e immotivato. Hai seminato bene ma cresce l’erbaccia dell’intolleranza.

Non so, non lo capisco più il mondo. Non riesco a venire a capo delle logiche che sottendono la nostra civiltà.

Spero un giorno di tornare nella mia amata Aitutaki, trascinando la “Samsonite” lungo il margine rovente della pista dell’aeroporto e arrivare nella casetta che mi ha accolto nel lontano 2000 perché qui io non ci voglio rimanere più.

Losing My Religion – Rem

Oh, life is bigger
It’s bigger
Than you and you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I set it upThat’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enoughI thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you tryEvery whisper
Of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I set it upConsider this
Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees, failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around?
Now I’ve said too muchI thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you tryBut that was just a dream
That was just a dreamThat’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enoughI thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you tryBut that was just a dream
Try, cry
Why try?
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
Dream

“Losing My Religion”

Oh life, it’s bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

Consider this
Consider this, the hint of the century
Consider this, the slip
That brought me to my knees, failed
What if all these fantasies come
Flailing around
Now I’ve said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry, why try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream
