A Fine Life

The Story

PLATONIC

“Platonic” highlights the fine line that exists between the ability to live a reality and the wish, conscious or subconscious, to stay away from it and fancying it instead. 
As such, the song addresses the very actual – or not so actual? – issue of having choices but not being able, or willing, to take decisions and to move forward.

“You come across, I look at you, there is light all around
Is something going on?

You stare at me, the dream is real, it’s not an illusion
Something is going on

For sure

Time-stop, we wish this moment lasted for eternity
And it is happening now

Both wonder how this could feel so much like reality
(n’ we are not) on television now

And it’s going on and on and on and on
Feels like it’s going on and on and on and on

As time goes by, we realized it was a fantasy
Simply just fantasy

We both got scared to lose our supreme autonomy
Our minds got overwhelmed

Too bad

Imagination’s sometimes better than reality
And we have tried it now

It made no sense believing in some sort of destiny
Things are platonic now

And now it’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone
Everything’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone

Now it’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone
Everything’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone

Now it’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone
Everything’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone

Now it’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone
Everything’s gone and gone and gone and gone and gone”

WHERE ARE WE NOW?

“Where are we now?” relates a typical issue of our times: two people won’t necessarily spend much time in the same place, before moving away from each other. This poses new issues and challenges in a relationship compared to how things would have unfolded not so long ago.
The song also evidences the fact that verbal communication is indeed just one way among many others, to express our feelings to each other.

“Hello..?

Hey… it’s me…

Oh, hey…..it’s been a while…

I know…I’ve been thinking about you…

Ar..…are we ever gonna make it?

It depends….where are we now?”

A FINE LIFE

“A Fine Life” acknowledges the gift of life. As such, the right attitude towards our existence should not develop into something intrinsically negative but rather into the contemplation of its very beauty as a whole.

“It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life

Let the ride decide
Let the walk do the talk
Let the tide get you wild
Let the sound pace it all

Let the ride decide, it’s a fine life
Let the walk do the talk, it’s a fine life
Let the tide get you wild, it’s a fine life
Let the sound pace it all, it’s a fine life

It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life

It’s a fine life
It’s a fine
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life

It’s a fine life
It’s a fine
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life

It’s a fine life
It’s a fine
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life

It’s a fine life
It’s a fine
It’s a fine life
It’s a fine life.”

LOSING CONTROL

“Losing Control” is all about embracing our life, the only one we have, to the fullest. 
It is meant to convey a message of self-acceptance and positivism. And why not going a little crazy, if this is meant to be…
