  • Humpty Dumpty - Beautiful

    5,829 views 2 years 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)
