Music Composers Unite!
Just an old song of mine in a home recording from last summer. Me and a friend on guitars and him also singing it as my voice was quite out of order. Since it has Greekk lyrics I give a rough translation
SUNSET IN RIALTO
Sunset descents to Rialto,
I sat somewhere thoughtful to eat something,
I say to myself, "let's order as a first dish
risotto and peas, which I love!"
And the waiter says,
"this dish is served only for two".
Damn! What choice does he give me,
is it a diner for laughs or for grieving?
Should I say to strike out the risotto
and bring only just the peas?
Venice is a city for two,
in my loneliness an unlooked for fasting.
I say, "for a first bring me some ravioli,
for main dish a roasted steak",
so he goes and I'm left watching the naughty babes,
then Venice seems to have everything.
The only thing it does not have is risotto,
for a lunatic joker (Pierrot Lunaire).
I will eat my diner alone,
I will have my wine in small slow sips,
I will remember you and I will love you,
but when I will possess again my seeing ability,
I will make a lip for different clear skies,
and night will finally descent in Rialto
