Amarsi un po'
è come bere
più facile
è respirare.
Basta guardarsi e poi
avvicinarsi un po'
e non lasciarsi mai
impaurire no, no!
Amarsi un po'
è un po' fiorire
aiuta sai
a non morire.
Senza nascondersi
si può eludere
la solitudine.

Però, però volersi bene no
è difficile
quasi come volare.
Ma quanti ostacoli
e sofferenze e poi
sconforti e lacrime
per diventare noi,
veramente noi
ma irraggiungibili.

Però, però volersi bene no
è difficile
quasi come volare.

Per diventare noi,
veramente noi
ma irraggiungibili...
