lyrics

I can be your brother
Help you to hide
I can blow your cover
Pull the thorns from your side

I can be your astronaut
If you want some space
Or I can hold mirrors
Right in your face

I can be the father
That you never had
Heaviest for what's harder
And nearest for what's far (????)

I can be your astronaut
If you want some space
Or I can hold mirrors
Right in your face

I can be the mother
That sings you to sleep
And loves you like no other
Be the tears you can't weep

I can be your astronaut
If you want some space
Or I can hold mirrors
Right in your face
Right in your
Right in your
I can hold mirrors

I really like the song, even if I'm not that crazy about all the brother/father/mother thing.

Anyway, it also seems that he's playing around with the song... The video Marti posted was the first time he played it, in Zafferana, then he played a slower version in Caserta, a guitar version in the Instagram streaming, and now it looks like he just played an a cappella version in Ostia Antica.
I hope videos surface of all those versions!

As I hear the last lines of the third verse, he sings:
Have ease for what’s harder
And ears for what’s sad.

Odd to hear these reactions since, for me, those verses are easily the best written lyrics. Conversely, I really do not like the chorus at all. Too similar to a much greater song that he's already written. Too repetitious and waaaaay too cheezy. The guitar version on the boat was a vast improvement but I can't help feeling he could still do more. "Steal a Mule" was loaded with carefree charm and innocence. This one feels a bit forced.

I really like it. It's a bit on the sweet side but still very nice.
I love that the piano is back and the loop station is gone
