Francesco Gabbani Volevamo solo essere felici Lyrics English Translation

I can’t sleep tonight
Someone screams from the balcony
Because she has lost love or her dog
Or his revolution

Tonight he takes me around
Along the arcades and my streets
Each star is so close
The universe, a studio flat

By now you will have understood
That life can hurt
And make you die indefinitely
Of an occasional pain

But tonight everything is perfect
Like a secret formula
A dim light bulb
Lit at the end of a shop

We just wanted to be happy
How to laugh at nothing
Chewing on bold dreams
And trust the people
Just be different
And throw some away
And take the world to stone
Yes, throw us away, throw us away

This night looks like a mirage
A perfume that does not last long
The unconsciousness that gives courage
Even to laugh in the face of emptiness

This night takes you around
Entangled in my thoughts
And everything looks so clean
As we were born yesterday

But by now you will have understood
That there wasn’t a perfect time
Now that time has faded a bit
As a photo inside a drawer

But tonight it’s so light
An old first run movie
A lie that seems true
I could swear it on my name

We just wanted to be happy
How to laugh at nothing
Chewing on bold dreams
And trust the people
Just be different
And throw some away
And take the world to stone
Yes, throw us away, throw us away

But every time has its rules
Every mistake his apologies
Memory its pages
Full of erasures

And someone from the balcony
Which repeats again: “You don’t remember that
Do not you remember?”

We just wanted to be happy
How to laugh at nothing
Chewing on bold dreams
And trust the people
Just be different
And throw some away
And take the world to stone
Yes, throw us away, throw us away
