U3A: “Running on Faith”

RUNNING ON FAITH

Lately I’ve been running on faith
What else can a poor boy do?
But my world will be right
When Love comes over you

Lately I’ve been talking in my sleep
Can’t imagine what I’d have to say
Except my world will be right
When love comes back your way
I’ve always been
One to take each and every day
Seems like by now
I’d find a love who cares just for me

Then we’d go running on faith
All of our dreams would come true
And our world will be right
When love comes over me and you

Well, I’ve always been
One to take each and every day
Seems like by now
I’d find a love who cares just for me

Then we’d go running on faith
All of our dreams would come true
And our world will be right
When love comes over me and you, yes it would

Love comes over, over you
Love comes over, over you

Love comes over you
Love comes over you
Love comes over you
Love comes over you

This blues song appeared on Journeyman, a 1989 album by Eric Clapton. which covered a wide range of styles including blues, jazz, soul and pop. It was considered the artist’s return to sobriety, after his struggle with alcohol addiction
The album found commercial success, but everything was dampened by the horrific tragedy of Clapton’s four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a 53rd floor window in the apartment where his mother Lory Del Santo was staying in New York City, on March 20, 1991. Clapton’s grief was later captured in the song “Tears in Heaven”. In an interview Clapton stated, “I almost subconsciously used music for myself as a healing agent, and it worked… I have got a great deal of happiness and a great deal of healing from music”.

Translation into Italian:

Ultimamente ho corso spinto dalla fede.
Cos’altro può fare un povero ragazzo?
Ma il mio mondo sarà giusto
quando l’amore verrà da te.

Ultimamente ho parlato nel sonno
non riesco a immaginare che cosa avessi da dire
tranne che il mio mondo sarà giusto
quando l’amore ritornerà  da te.

Sono sempre stato
uno da prendere di giorno in giorno
sembra come se ora
potrei trovare un amore che si preoccupa solo di me

Poi noi correremmo spinti dalla fede
tutti i nostri sogni si potrebbero avverare
e il nostro mondo sarà quello giusto
quando l’amore verrà verso di me e te

(L.Z.)
