The song of May: You let me walk along

Per questo mese, entrambe le canzoni scelte da Margherita, sia per inglese che per spagnolo, vengono dall'Eurovision Song Contest 2018, la grande manifestazione di musica internazionale che abbiamo seguito in Tv qualche settimana fa.
La canzone tradotta dall'inglese è cantata dal rappresentante della Germania (che, come molti, ha scelto di cantare un brano non nella propria lingua madre).
E' una canzone orecchiabile e carina, ma con un contenuto per noi particolarmente coinvolgente e delicato.
Vi mostro i video: quello ufficiale, poi con le parole e infine dell'esibizione all'Eurovision di Lisbona.


Ed ecco testo, traduzione e curiosità sul brano.
The song of May
You let me walk alone
I'm a dreamer, a make believer

I was told that you were, too
I love the silence and the clear horizon
And I got that all from you


Every now and then I'm drawn to places

Where I hear your voice or see your face
And every little thought will lead me right back to you


I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had one life and a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
'Cause you let me walk this road alone


My childhood hero will always be you

And no one else comes close
I thought you'd lead me when life's misleading
That's when I miss you most

Every now and then I'm drawn to places

Where I hear your voice or see your face
And every little thought will lead me right back to you


I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had one life and a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
'Cause you let me walk this road alone


I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum
You made this place a home
A shelter from the storm
You said I had one life and a true heart
I tried my best and I came so far
But you will never know
'Cause you let me walk this road alone
