Indians

Lyrics:Renato Russo

If only, at least one more time,
I again had all the gold that I gave
To whoever was able to convince me
That it was a test of friendship
If someone took away even that which I didn't have.

If only, at least one more time,
I forget that I believe it was for a joke
That always a floor rag was cut
From rich linen and pure silk

If only, at least one more time,
I could explain that which no one is able to understand
That what happened is still going to come
And the future is no longer like it was anciently.

If only, at least one more time,
I could prove that that who has more than they need to have
Almost always is convinced that they don't have enough
And speaks too much, for having nothing to say.

If only, at least one more time,
The most simple was seen as the most important,
But they gave us mirrors
And we say a sick world

If only, at least one more time,
I could understand how that God is, at the same time, three
And this same God was killed for you
It is that badness then, to leave a God so sad.

I wanted the danger and I even bleed alone
Understand - thus I was able to bring you back to me,
When I discovered that it was always you
That understood me from beginning to end
And it is you that has the cure of my vice
Of staying in this saudade that I feel
Of everything that I still don't see.

If only, at least one more time,
I could believe for an instant in everything that exists
And believe that the world is perfect
And that all people are happy

If only, at least one more time,
I could make the world know that your name
Is in everything and even like this
No one says to you at least thank you
If only, at least one more time,
like the most beautiful tribe, of the most beautiful indians
Was not attacked for being innocent

I wanted the danger and I even bleed alone
Understand - thus I was able to bring you back to me,
When I discovered that it was always you
That understood me from beginning to end
And it is you that has the cure of my vice
Of staying in this saudade that I feel
Of everything that I still don't see.

They gave us mirrors and we saw a sick world

I tried to cry and I wasn't able.
