Marco Mengoni with L'Essenziale (The Essentials)

They support the heroes

if the going gets tough

and to play

They are then blessed

if they exchange insults with good

It also happens to us

to make war and then aspire to peace

and in my silence

I revoke your every single pain

To appreciate that which

I have not been able to choose

While the world falls apart

I create new spaces

and desires that

also belong to you

that always are to me

essential

I will not accept

another error of assessment

love is able to

hide behind kind words

that I have spoken before

that were empty and stupid

While the world falls apart

I create new spaces

and desires that

also belong to you

While the world falls to pieces

I walk away from the excesses

and bad habits

I will return to the start

I turn to you who are to me

essential

Love doesn’t follow logic

It takes your breath and thirst

While the world falls apart

I walk away from the excesses

and bad habits

I return to the start

I turn to you who are to me
