Too Much To Ask Testo

Testo Too Much To Ask

Laura Pausini: il 25 settembre esce il primo singolo estratto da "Simili"
a refreshing plunge,
a drink of palatable water,
a deep inspiration on a warm summer day,
a safe stroll in a middle of the road community,
a neighbour who in times of need will not turn away,
I ain't no politician, I am a citizen,
and I wonder if I'm living too far out of bounds
community protection, rehabilitation,
police that serve without legitimate right to maim,
global awareness, ecological guilt,
cultural and environmental awakening,
I ain't no optimist, I try to be a realist,
and I think that we're living too far out of bounds,
is it too much to ask?
could it be the earth is shrinking?
I can see the walls closing in,
no one can take much for granted anymore
remote control, three cars for every family,
corruption at the expense of the simple majority,
a violent clash, a plunder of the third world,
any wretched ploy that bolsters our economy,
I ain't no blind supporter, I'm a conscious citizen,
and I know that we're living too far out of bounds,
is it too much to ask?
could we keep the earth from sinking?
I'm not taking nothing for granted anymore.
