Roma, ti guardo dall’alto di monte Mario.

E’ vicino un tramonto calmo, rosa.

Il rumore del traffico rimbomba solo lontano…


Quanti turisti nei prati, nel caldo di luglio

Ora d’autunno contemplo l’assoluto deserto

Farei come le rondini, migrerei in Nord Africa


E mi sento, mi sento distante e mi sento straniera

E mi sento, mi sento distante e mi sento straniera

Ti amerei, ti amerei di piu’ se ti conoscessi di meno?


Qui quanti amori sui prati, in primavera

Non meno intenso mi pare Ottobre, il tuo mese

La solitudine, la tristezza, la mia speranza, la tua promessa.
