( She Was Waitin’ For Her Mother At The Station In Torino And You Know I Love You Baby But It’s Getting Too Heavy To Laugh ) AKA “Woman”

The glow
Around your face
When you see
The lightning race
I know
I’m very near
And I can hear
The thunder

A woman
Of perplexity
A woman
For eternity
A woman
Of the land
A woman
For a man
I’m down
On my knees
And I’m saying
Please believe me

It’s hard
To fall out
Of love
Completely
It’s harder
To find a way
To come back
Discreetly
To speak
Of things anew
To weep
In quiet blue

Brocade upon your bed
Memories should fade
At least of you
A scepter
Of ice and fire
A specter
Of my desire
A girl-child
Of such loveliness
The woman
Of my emptiness

A woman
Of famed
Renown
A woman
Who kicks the clown
A woman
Of the land
A woman
For a man

Here is the explanation of the longest song title of the music history: “She Was Waitin’ For Her Mother At The Station In Torino And You Know I Love You Baby But It’s Getting Too Heavy To Laugh”

When I was living in Italy, there was a bunch of friends american, german, etc… None of us have any money. There was a young runaway italian girl named Leticia. I was living with the actrice Francesca Annis at the time. This girl would come around to our house and we feed her and she sleep on the couch and then she go to somebody else and do the same thing with them. As I say, we didn’t have any money. Finally, we all pool together and got enough money to get her a train ticket back home which was in Torino. So, we get up early, we take her to Naples at 9 o’clock in the morning, we get her on the train. We drive back. It’s about 11:30 at night, there was all of us set around at the Bar International and the phone rings. Bartender Pascale answers the phone and said it’s for me. I pick it up and it’s Leticia saying: ” My mother is not here and I don’t know what to do”. And at that precise moment, she saw her mother coming to the station and she said “No,no,no, it’s OK, my mother is coming now, bye bye”.
