Saw You in Strada Nova

lyrics

I was walking down in Strada Nova
in an autumn midday
I had a zillion of things to do
so I quickened my pace
Suddenly, right after passing
the sandwich bar behind the casino,
I heard a voice
coming from inside the bar

"Hey, there's old Hox...
come back and let's have
an aperitif!"

Slowing down the pace,
I turned my head and I saw Harry...
He was overweight,
and I couldn't see
any expression in his face...
His eyes seemed watching
a point far behind me.
I felt like I didn't know him anymore,
like he turned to a stranger.

"Yeah" I said, "Hi ...well, I'm sorry
but I'm too late
really, I must go now,
but I'll be back tomorrow
and will have time for...
Awright, I go, see you next!"
And you said "fine!",
with a fake glacial enthusiasm
and disappeared into that bar
like a whale down the ocean


You already knew
there won't be another meeting
you’ll never see me again

Because your motto
was always "THEM OR US"
but you let them win.
