Operazione nostalgia


Diamond and rust – Joan Baez

I’ll be dammed
here comes your ghost again
but that’s not unusual
it’s just that the moon is full
and you decided to call

and here I sit
hand on the telephone
hearing a voice I know
a couple of light years ago
heading straight for a fall

as I recall
you eyes were bluer than robins eggs
my poetry was lousy you said
where are you calling from?
a booth in the mid-west

ten years ago I bought you some cufflinks
you bought me something
we both know what memories can bring
they bring diamonds and rust

well you burst on the scene already a legend
the unswashed phenomenon
the original vagabond
you strayed into my arms

and there you stayed
temporarly lost at sea
the Madonna was your’s for free
yeah, the girl on the halfshell
could keep you from un-harmed

now I see you standing
with brown leaves falling all around
and snow in your hair
as your smiling out the window
of that crummy hotel
over Washington square
our breath comes out white
clouds mingled and hangs in the air
speaking strickly from me
we both could have died then and there

now your telling me
your not nostalgic
so give me another word for it
you were so good with words
and in keeping things vague

because I need some of that vagueness now
it’s all come back so clearly
I love you dearly
but, if your offering me diamonds and rust
I’ve already paid

è sempre bravissima e bellissima, ma si sa che sono nostalgica.
