Humpty Dumpty - Beautiful

2,566 views 1 year ago
An obscure and somewhat reclusive figure in Italy's underground scene, Alessandro Calzavara (the singer-songwriter behind the moniker Humpty Dumpty) has been freely recording and distributing music on the web for about twelve years now. He manages to pay homage to a wealth of musical and literary sources, while retaining a true sense of originality and a subtle distrust of conventional songwriting. Robyn Hitchcock, Julian Cope and Andy Partridge are obvious references here, immersed in an intricate blend of post-punk, electronics and psychedelia.

"Beautiful" is from: "Humptamatic" (2011)

After all these years
It's become so clear
What you are to me

We've been finding words
We've been throwing swords
For a fear so deep

We're a chance
To be beautiful
(why do we call it fear)
a chance
To be beautiful
('cause I think it's love)

We don't need to fight
We don't need to hide
What is real indeed

We've been paying false debts
We've been missing steps
We've been losing strength

We're a chance
To be beautiful
(never mind the style)
A chance
To be beautiful
(please surrender)

A chance
To be beautiful
(it only takes to accept)
A chance
To be beautiful
(never mind their plans)
