Ponti Perché dovrei cambiare il colore della pelle perché dovrei cambiare il ritmo delle stelle perché dovrei cambiare il sogno che hai venduto perché dovrei cambiare lavoro che hai cercato perché dovrei cambiare la voglia di sapere perché dovrei cambiare il colore delle scale perché dovrei cambiare le luce dei tuoi occhi perché dovrei cambiare il sapore dei tuoi baci perché dovrei cambiare il segno della luna perché dovrei cambiare il colore della mia fortuna e siamo qui ancora adesso immaginarsi un po' d'amore e siamo qui da vent'anni ci scaviamo il nostro cratere Ancora non lo so cosa devo dire ancora non lo so cosa devo fare sono quasi 30 anni che ho imparato un po' a soffrire sono oltre 30 anni che ho iniziato un po' a cantare Ancora non lo so cosa devo dire ancora non lo so come devo stare fare il cantautore è soltanto un mestiere è un modo come un altro per creare valore valore lo sai non si crea in banca si crea ogni volta che una donna stanca di sera allatta il suo bambino lo carezza distrutta e si addormenta lí vicino il valore lo sai non si perde in borsa si perde quando rinunci al sorriso di tua figlia distratto da uno schermo oppure perché vai di corsa lo so che vai di corsa una famiglia da sfamare pagare le bollette una canzone da finire non ti può sempre nascondere Ma dimmi? ricordi quando eri bambino? non erano forse gli occhi illuminati d'amore a spianarti il destino ma dimmi ti ricordi quando eri ragazzo? non erano forse i consigli anche sbagliati di un amico a farti ritrovare il coraggio ma dimmi ti ricordi quando eri malato? non erano quelle carezze a ridarti quel sorriso perduto ma dimmi immagini tra un po' anche da vecchio? qualcuno verrà a trovarti per darti un piccolo bacio sull'occhio ma dimmi un giorno anche tu sarai morto? chi si prenderà cura dei fiori che ha lasciato nell'orto?
