Puzone in su ‘ilu (Bird on the wire)

Puzone in su ‘ilu

Comente inbriagu in cuncordu a mesunotte
Apo chircau a manera mea de èssere lìberu.
Comente erme in s’amu
Comente cadderi in carchi libru antigu e colau
Apo chistiu corriolos meos pro tene.

Si no soe istètiu zustu
Speremus chi as a poder lassare currere
Si no soe istètiu sìncheru
Speremus chi apas a ischire ca no fui nande a tue.

Comente pitzinnu nàschidu mortu
Comente fera cun corru
Apo istrantzau totu sos chi mi cherian sighire.
Ma ti lu zuro in supra ‘e custa canthone
E in supra totu si chi apo faddiu
Ca ap’a donare totu a tibe.

Apo bidu unu pedidore arrumbau a unu fuste de linna
M’at narau “no depes pedire meda”.
E una grassiosa ‘emina incrarada in sa zenna iscura.
A boghes m’at narau “Poite no dimandare de prus?”.

Comente puzone in su ‘ilu
Comente inbriagu in cuncordu a mesunotte
Apo chircau a manera mea de èssere lìberu.

Like a bird on the wire

Leonard Cohen

Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old-fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.

If I have been unkind
I hope that you can just let it go by
If I have been untrue,
I hope you know it was never to you.

Like a baby stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.
But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee.

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch,
He said to me, “You must not ask for so much.”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
She cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?”

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Idi d’autunno
Ti salvano il cuore
