This is a collaboration with Mike Lazarev, whose piano piece “All I Said…” was playing on SoundCloud and words came to me. I recorded it while singing those words, and asked him for permission to post it. This is my first song and singing. Love to hear your thoughts. – Mario Savioni
It sounds melodious and soothing, with a touch of melancholy. This is a most beautiful metaphor: “We shall ride into the blackness of the sky.” It can also have many interpretations as I think it stands for any uncertainty and fear in our lives. Your voice slightly reminds me of Gazebo’s, especially in his song I like Chopin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grGjD1rTNyg
I am glad you like it. I am glad it has the capacity to be melodious and soothing. I thank the underlying music for that. I hope my voice honors it. I thought of the song as hopeful, a kind of eternity of love. Often we love someone who is out in the ether, not dead, but no longer touchable to us. It’s a song about knowing someone is out there but perhaps never finding them.
Great, Mario, I think you have a talent about lyrics, so as a trobador you’re a good one. Continue to play, and also to “trobar”, the art of finding… I hope you find also a joglar, a good singer to spread your lyrics…
Thank you Sergi! I will be on the lookout for someone to sing for me. This next song is very sad. I think if I sing it I am sure to attract those who would want to help me for their ear sakes. If I sing it from the balcony, I will become a meme, called: “See what happens in America!”
I also like the picture with Mike and you. Great collaboration!
I did that graphic design, I found the picture of Mike on-line, and my friend David Agasi shot the image of me in San Francisco one day near the Castro. I am lucky he was willing to have me post the song.
I like the song text
Beautiful accompaniment to the melody. I think it would be wonderful to follow the lyrics in print while listening to the recording.
Thank you Ms. Black. Here are the lyrics:
You and I
Looking into the sky;
We can see far and wide,
And I love you like the glimmering stars.
How much we know,
Love will grow
On the stretch to the moon.
I said it early on,
When we met in the icy room,
Which is no longer so,
Because I love you,
And you know.
We shall ride into
The blackness of the sky,
You and I…
You and I…
– Mario Savioni, 2020.
Thank you for including the lyrics, Mario. Now it is easier for me to understand the meaning. 😊
You are welcome.
Mario, you have surprised me. I didn’ t recognise it was you singing. I like the lyrics and the piano music.
