“Un cane dagli occhi neri bussa alla mia porta, un cane dagli occhi neri mi chiede di più, un cane dagli occhi neri che conosceva il mio nome… sto invecchiando e voglio tornare a casa, sto invecchiando e non ne voglio più sapere.”

Nicholas Rodney Drake (Rangoon, 19 giugno 1948  – Tanworth-in-Arden, 25 novembre 1974) è stato un cantautore inglese. (wikipedia)

Day is done

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you begun
When the day is done

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life’s not made of gold
When the night is cold

When the bird has flown
Got no one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird had flown

When the game’s been fought
You sped the ball across the court
Lost much sooner that you would’ve thought
Now the game’s been fought

When the party’s through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn’t do the things you meant to do
Now there’s no time to start anew
Now the party’s through

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done
