Let Me Stay 04:41
1st verse Two hearts in a room Good deeds falling into gloom Will we make it out, Unfolding what it's all about? Chorus: It's time for me to go My body wish to stay But if you say that word I will not go away I've never been so sure Of something to adore The words I wish you say Hey baby let me stay 2nd verse Forty-second floor Watching all the lights below Still we're in a room But the universe locked in our minds Is screaming out we're two of a kind

1st verse It's just a matter of time Before she'll be gone away Don't know how to shake my mind And simply ask her her name I'm so afraid I'm so shy We're playing games with our glance Telling myself a weak lie: Will there be just a small chance? Chorus: I need to take my time To realize that I have to move on I can't keep standing still Searching my will before then it's too late 2nd verse She sees I'm looking at her And spread the new to her friend But as time is running by This path leads to a dead end It's just a matter of time Before she'll be gone away Don't know how to shake my mind And simply ask her her name Chorus: I need to take my time To realize that I have to move on I can't keep standing still Searching my will before then it's too late

Springtime 04:24
SPRINGTIME 1st verse Close the door It’s you who I’ve been waiting for Let’s go out There is something I want to talk about Take my hand It’s so hard to walk across the sand Watch the sea This peaceful feeling it’s you and me Chorus: Springtime is coming and winter is leaving Don’t you feel a warm sensation inside When I’m beside you what’s in my heart it’s like growing tide 2nd verse Talk to me Open your heart let your thoughts run free Take the chance To let me know about this romance If you’re wise You’ll tell me everything without lies You and me We are alone in front of this blue sea Chorus: Springtime is coming and winter is leaving Don’t you feel a warm sensation inside When I’m beside you what’s in my heart it’s like growing tide Bridge: I lose my breath looking in your eyes I’m in your hand.. this I realize I don’t get enough of the time together You’re the sweetest fruit ready to be gathered

1st verse Basically I’m fine, even if days go by so fast. I try to resume time, viewing some wasted videotapes. I don’t sleep so fine, Sometimes some more sometimes some less. Don’t know what I miss In this everyday mad race Chorus: Do I need somebody.. Maybe I need somebody.. Should I need somebody.. 2nd verse Basically I’m fine, But my restless brain maybe not. Questions, answers, thoughts: they season every day. Mysteries of life took me to this golden age. But there’s something that I miss In this everyday mad race Chorus: Do I need somebody.. Maybe I need somebody.. Should I need somebody.. Bridge: Whether I’ll find her, will I be able to keep her? Questions, answers, thoughts: they season every day.. Ask me how I am.. basically I’m fine

1st verse Life is a tape you can’t rewind Listeners are us for only once Looking back the things we have done With a soundtrack made on our own Life is a tape you can’t rewind Learning to crawl by previous falls Don’t mistake in letting you down Something wrong can be a treasure found Chorus: Live the life, breathe the air, feel a king everywhere 2nd verse Nobody teaches you how to love I guess does it come natural Every day’s a lesson to take Don’t forget that life is a tape Chorus: Live the life, breathe the air, feel a king everywhere Watch the sun shining high, lithium in your eyes …………………………………………………… Watch the sun shining high, lithium in your eyes… Life is a tape you can’t rewind… Life is a tape you can’t rewind…

about

I was going to release a 'best of' for the 10 year career, and as any collection that respects, it should have included some unreleased or alternative versions.

I started collecting some tracks, remastering some of them, digging the archives for unreleased material, and at the end of the day I found myself with 11 tracks.
Virtually an album.

Agreed with my label, I've welcomed the suggestion of adding another couple of songs, and put out next release as an 'album', not to confuse and surrender the new material, while the 'best of' will be out later this year.

Both always and only in digital, the album on all download and streaming platforms, while the 'best of' only for iTunes at a very low price.

'Life Is A Tape 2007 - 2017' will not be a real album as "23:32" was conceived and the tracklist will consist of:

- a 12 minutes suite I never dared to release before

- the original version of 'Springtime', so far only available in 'Remix'

- 2 covers released last year in "Papeetecafé Saudade" plus another cover that did not find room in the tracklist of the same

- 2 instrumental tracks with Andy G, part of 4 experiments, one of which, "Essence" has recently been released by Lounge Masters.

- 1 remastered track and one remastered and revisited from the first album 'Beautiful Memories ...'

- a new version of 'Basically I'm Fine'

- 1 track that was initially instrumental for a commercial project and I turned it into a song

- 1 song that comes to its third garment

- And finally a track composed yet before Didascalis released something officially, even dating back to 2003, but never done in the studio to this day.

So I can say that the seventh album will be a collection-non-collection, with the sound and flavor that distinguishes my latest productions.

I forgot: it will be called 'Life Is A Tape 2007 - 2017' because it also contains a new, almost acoustic version of 'Life Is A Tape', featuring Garduz - who since playing live with me, adores this song, and sang by Mary.

After all, I think 'Life Is A Tape's' lyrics are one of the deepest and most original things I've ever written.

P.S. As usual, each track will be posted along with a description and a story about it.

P.P.S It will be a more downtempo album than I wished, so: relaaaaaaaax
