There’s a life time passing by me I know. I ought to know. I think I know.
Like an eagle only silence is golden in my mind. I know what I know.
The Bow bells peal, they call to heel. The wind of change blows now.
Honour’s creed, reason’s pleas – they’re all forgotten now.
But we learn so fast – forget the past, the lessons from the past.
We want something new. Give us something new. All that I ask of you –

Don’t give me sad songs. Don’t give me sad songs.
Why all your sad songs? I don’t want sad songs. It’s only you.
Now you’re talking. Now you’re talking. Now you’re talking.
And all my dreams came true today.

Is this romance turning stardust to ashes in my hands?
Was that freedom? I thought freedom could pacify the mind (It’s all in the mind).
I know, but I know. Anomalies, uncharted seas – the memories lie in wait.
And they fantasize, sympathize. They know it’s all too late.
And if you don’t like lies - realise “No questions – no replies”.
Give us something new. We want something new. All that I ask of you –

Don’t give me sad songs. Don’t give me sad songs.
Why all your sad songs? I don’t want sad songs. It’s only you.
Now you’re talking. Now you’re talking. Now you’re talking.
And all my dreams came true today.

Borasigna, Camilla. Camilla where were you?
