L'Avventura

Lyrics: Renato Russo

When there is no compassion
Or even a gesture of help.
How to think about life
And those that we know we love?

Who thinks for his/herself is free
And to be free is something very serious
One can't close one's eyes
One can't look behind
Without learning something for the future

I ran to the hideout
I looked through the window
The sun is only one
But who knows there are two mornings

You need not come
If it will not be to stay
At least one night
And three weeks

Nothing is easy
Nothing is certain
We don't make out of love
Something dishonest

I want to be prudent
And always be correct
I want to be constant
And always try to be sincere

And we want to flee
But always we are without knowing

Your look
Doesn't tell more stories
Doesn't produce the fruit and not even the flower

And the sky isn't beautiful and silver
And what I was I am no longer
And I have nothing to remember

A sad thing is to wish well
To whom doesn't know how to forgive
I thought that always I will love you
Only I no longer want you

It's not desire, nor is it saudade
Sincerely, it is not true.

I know why you fled
But I'm unable to understand

I know why you fled
But I'm unable to understand

I know why you fled
But I'm unable to understand
