Day 157: “Labyrinth” – Elisa

!!!ITALIAN!!!

To have success in Italy by singing in english is something really difficult, but everything’s possible with such a voice.

“Labyrinth” belongs to the first album of  Elisa Toffoli, known by the fans simply as Elisa. “Pipes and Flowers” was released on 1997, when she was just back from the USA, 20 years old. People really liked the songs by this young girl from Trieste, and the album easily got awarded with 4 platinum disc.

Two videos were made for “Labyrinth”, second single of the album “Pipes and Flowers“. The single distribution was very particular aswell: not on cd, but on a vinyl, on which was recorded aswell the first single “Sleeping in your hand”.

Today’s video is the original one, made on 1998. Enjoy!

Labyrinth – Lyrics

Just like a spy through smoke and lights
I escaped through the back door of the world
and I saw things getting smaller
fear as well as temptation.

Now everything is reflection as I make my way through this labyrinth
and my sense of direction
is lost like the sound of my steps
is lost like the sound of my steps.

Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog
Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog

I see my memories in black and white
they are neglected by space and time
I store all my days in boxes
and left my whishes so far behind
I find my only salvation in playing hide and seek in this labyrinth
and my sense of connection
is lost like the sound of my steps
is lost like the sound of my steps.

Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog
Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog

Words sounds music and I’m spinning in
Words sounds music and I’m spinning out
but I want to stay here
‘cause I am waiting for the rain
and I want it to wash away
everything, everything, everything.

Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog
Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog

Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog
Scent of dried flowers and I’m walking through the fog
walking through the fog
