The Garden Awakes
music and lyrics by
Riccardo Scivales

Stay in silence, hidden behind a tree,
look around you, ev’rything’s in tune.
Walking barefoot,
among flowers and leaves,
can exalt you like anything else.
A distant horn is resounding just now,
Spring is shine, when the Garden Awakes!

Something strange is happening to me,
I can feel a new breath of life,
got a feeling pushing from the inside,
a new season suddenly moves

In the air! On the ground!
In the sky! In my heart!

And when I close the gate,
I can still feel the heat,
there are new sounds and colours in the air.
Darkness and gloom are a past memory:
there’s a new human being inside me. ® 2017
