10.Fragments (4:11)Nel 2015 esce: “Shadows and Fragments”, edito da Videoradio Edizioni Musicali. L’album contiene dieci canzoni originali, Il genere è un misto di cantautorato anglo-sassone con influenze blues, rock, country, folk e celtiche. Le dieci tracce sono cantate in inglese, arrangiate e registrate con strumenti acustici suonati live (chitarre acustiche e strumenti folk: dobro, banjo, mandolino, violino, violoncello, contrabasso, fisarmonica, batteria e percussioni). “Shadows and Fragments” è una sorta di passaggio di testimone con me stesso, tra il passato e il presente. Le canzoni composte qualche anno fa, sono rimaste in un blocco di appunti, fino a quando ho deciso di rimetterle a posto, cercando di “ricomporre le loro tracce”: ombre e frammenti appunto.   “Shadows” e “Fragments” sono anche i titoli del brano di testa e di coda del disco. Tra gli altri titoli c’è “Orange Rooms”, dedicata e ispirata alla vita di Amedeo Modigliani, ambientata nella Parigi del 1920, racconta gli ultimi momenti della sua vita e del suo legame con Livorno; “Lord Randal”, una versione originale, musicata da Luca Burgalassi, della omonima ballata medioevale scozzese, nella quale figura come ospite speciale Wendy Nieper, cantante londinese, che ha fatto parte del famoso gruppo vocale “Swingle Singers”. Ci sono poi due blues acustici “Highs and Lows” e “Starless Night Blues” ed un brano strumentale per chitarra acustica in accordatura aperta “34, Orange Road”.Il disco contiene anche, nei contenuti extra, cinque tracce in versione italiana: Chiaroscuri, Polvere e Ruggine, Vino e Ciliegie, Stanze Arancio e Frammenti.Il disco è stato registrato, mixato e masterizzato da Francesco Landucci presso lo studio “Il Poderino” di Casale Marittimo; la cover ed il libretto sono stati realizzati da Massimo Pellegrini di AdOne; le foto di Stefano Baldini.

Lyrics:

SHADOWS T&M di L.Burgalassi

You can sit back and say
They’re enough to do this job
You can believe the world
Is taking care of you,
but when the roads you run
turn narrow and cold,
you must follow them alone.

I've heard so many words
telling me what to do
all the help from friends
teaching me what is true
but every time I tried to understand,
I find myself sitting with my head in my hands

In her eyes I see new light
growing step by step
Through her eyes I see a bright sky
I see a deep blue sea
Tonight the moonlight seems to call my name
she knows that I'm alone
I know that she is alone

Nobody knows, I trust,
the pathway of one’s life;
you see the moments changing, changing all the time;
the only thing you find as right and true
one day may fade away, too soon.

In her eyes I saw a new light
growing step by step
Through her eyes I saw a bright sky
I saw a deep blue sea
Tonight the moonlight seems to call my name
she knows that I'm alone
I know that she is alone
Dust and Rust T&M di L.Burgalassi

I feel like I’m on the corner of a street
Waiting for someone
I feel like at the end of a long dream
Afraid of the dawn

I am looking for a passage in the night
i'm still searching for a light
dust and rust is all I have
and nothing more at all

And I know and I think.... I believe that.....
Something must have gone wrong
What I dream, what I wonder, I hope
now I really don’t know

I’m already…or just twenty two
How can I tell what is true?
Now that you, you’re going away, you too
I don’t even know what I’m loosing

but I know... and I think... I believe that...
Everything seems so wrong
And I dream... and I wonder...I hope
Now I really don’t know

Who am I?
What am I searching for?
Does anyone really care?
How much time? Tell me how long
will I be alone?

what I know.... what I think..... I believe that
Everything could go wrong
What I dream, what I wonder, I hope
I really don’t know



Dark Cherries and Wine T&M di L.Burgalassi

A dim light through the window’s curtain
on our blankets and pillows.
Outside the sparrows start singing at dawn
and she’s still breathing on me.

I can feel her skin on my skin
The odour of wine, the sounds of the night
The small room breathing with us
Whispered words under the stars

She was standing at the door
Tasting a glass of red wine.
Her glance up to the sky
that warm summer night.

Hard to tell her skin from my skin
Her odour from mine, the scent of the night
Her breath is my own but I know that soon
We will be too far

Lying on the cool sand
faint fishermen’s lights
Listening to the sea whisper
that quiet summer night

I know our candle is ceasing to burn
I’m still not ready to leave.
I'll never let anyone
cancel these memories from me

Her breath over me, her skin on my skin
dark cherries and wine in the still of the night
That small room falling with us
Unspoken words sent to the stars



ORANGE ROOMS T&M di L.Burgalassi

Blow out the candle
lay down on our bed beside me
dream of a new life away from here
out of all these hells

A little bit more
just the last effort
then we can reach out for the green
Tuscan shore.

Goodbye Orange Rooms goodbye
“La Rotonde”, les boulevards, Aurevoir
goodbye Paris goodbye
Bittersweet, wandering nights

Jeanne je t’aime
are you afraid of loving me
Jeanne you are the shadow of this shadow
of a man

Mille neuf cent vingt
Janvier il pleut encore
tu dis you will stay forever
beside me

Goodbye Orange Rooms goodbye
“La Rotonde”, les boulevards, Aurevoir
Goodbye Paris, goodbye
Bittersweet, crazy nights

Away from my night obsessions
From all my hallucinations
Dans les boulevards
Jeanne ne pleurer pas

Goodbye Orange Rooms goodbye
“La Rotonde”, les boulevards, Aurevoir
say goodbye to Paris goodbye
to our bittersweet wandering nights

HIGHS & LOWS Luca Burgalassi

I play this tune for you
'cause you know
I’m in a funny kind’a mood.
When I woke up this morning
I was a bit hazed
‘cause all the time I was thinking about you.

And I wrote down this song
without much thought to the words
I got this sweet blues playing inside’a me
I know that every morning, I’ll be satisfied
with my heart just beating for you

Suddenly I miss you
Just a minute seems to be too long for me to wait
Today I've got these blues
Hanging round inside’a me
And I know It’s gonna be alright

It’s a pretty strange, strange feeling
Turning my Highs to Lows
deep inside I feel fine
'cause when I wake up in the morning
I'm happy to think that
you could be dreaming of me

It's funny I miss you
Just a minute seems way long for me to wait
Today I've got these Blues
Hanging on all day with me
but I know I’m going to be alright

Pay no heed if I feel a bit down
'cause every summer’s got its rainy days
The sun will shine soon

Really I miss you
Every moment seems to be too long for me to wait
Today I've got these Blues
spending all this time with me
but I sure I’m gonna be alright




STARLESS NIGHT L.Burgalassi

“Only a friend of mine”
you say, here by my side
Could I change your mind?
Please give me one last chance
Don’t go away.
Would you stay with me...
without asking why...
just one more night

On this riverside
time quickly passes by
when you're by my side.
Will this be our last dance,
Once you’ve gone away?
Give me a reason why you can’t stay here
Just one more night

Night is falling and the city sleeps
Night brings silence, all over the streets
Dark clouds cover the sky
On this Starless Night

Night is falling and the city sleeps
Night is coming all over the streets
Dark clouds cover the sky
On this Starless Night

Now I realize
time no longer passes by
without you by my side.
Had I opened my soul,
Now you would be mine.
Would you come back to me?
help to brighten up
Such a starless night




SHIPWRECK T. & M. L. Burgalassi

It seems like a dream
or some shadow of the past
It seems... what it seems...
Seems to be so far away
Now tracks are lost
they vanished soon
I can go on again

I feel like a ship
sailing in no sea
I feel... what I feel…
I feel like everything is unreal
Yes, tracks are lost
They vanished fast
I must go on and on and on again

You are still not ready
And I don’t want to fall
I just need a place to go
I don’t want this space anymore
Nothing’s left to say
If your game remains the same

I feel like a ship
sailing in no sea
I feel... what I feel…
I see that everything is so real
Yes, tracks are gone
They vanished soon
I will go on and on and on alone

You are still not ready
You’re scared to fall
I'll find a place to go
I don’t want this cage anymore
Nothing’s left to say
If your game remains this game



FRAGMENTS T&M di L.Burgalassi

On my knees
trying
to pick up
the broken pieces from the ground
Since our
porcelain building
shattered on the floor

And every fragment
is a new wound
needing to be cured
And every fragment
Is just
A fragment to forget

And you?
Are you in front of the mirror,
frozen
criticized by your own image
pretending to defend yourself
when no one’s there attacking you?

Now I find
small pieces everywhere
at every step
I’m afraid to cut myself
Purity
Was equilibrium
And you knew
It could break down easily

To rebuild
Is not easy
Not as clear as before
Everything
anytime
May crumble down again

And you?
Are you inside the mirror
Still
criticizing your own image
and still attacking
who is no longer defending?
