Cold black heart
So, I'm watching a series about a bunch of soccer moms killing each other or something... and from the moment the theme song starts I'm like - wow, this is *really* good music.

"Maybe this time I can be strong
But since I know who I am
I'm probably wrong
Maybe this time I can go far
But thinking about where I've been
Ain't helping me start."





"I'm in love but I'm still sad
I've found peace but I'm not glad
All my nights and all my days
I've been trying the wrong way

I'm a black man in a white world"





According to Kiwanuka, “Black Man in a White World” is the result of meeting his predominantly white fanbase in the United States. The meaning of the song is further developed during an interview with Irish Examiner:

“I’ve been marketed as a black soul singer, which is perhaps what I am,” says the shy yet friendly Londoner [Kiwanuka]. “But I don’t feel like that. In my head, where I grew up, I was more used to middle class white England. That’s what I’ve been around all my life. The fact no black people were coming to my gigs made me realise we’re more segregated than we think. Even in the kinds of music we listen to.”

“I guess it became a statement,” Kiwanuka says of the political-yet-personal lyrics. “All of this stuff has been going around my head since I was a teenager. The differences in culture — everything. Where I fit in European white society. Does colour really matter? It’s pretty obvious that certain kinds of records are bought by certain kinds of people without any crossover. I’m sort of in the middle of that. If you are around it your entire life it weighs on you.”





""Home again, home again
One day I know I'll feel home again
Born again, born again
One day I know I'll feel strong again

I left my head
Many times I've been told
All this talk will make you old

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on

Lost again, lost again
One day I know our paths will cross again
Smile again, smile again
One day I hope to make you smile again
I won't hide

Many times I've been told
Speak your mind, just be bold

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes

All the tears will clear
Then I feel no fear
Then I'd feel no way
My paths will remain straight

Home again, home again
One day I know I'll feel home again
Born again, born again
One day I know I'll feel strong again

I left my head
Many times I've been told
All this talk will make you old

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on"

"E se non passa la tristezza con altri occhi la guarderò."
