CROSSING MY MIND


9 inediti rock | blues | funky

Pasquale Aprile è sassofonista e cantautore, classe 1980. Durante gli studi sperimenta diverse formazioni rock-blues e consolida la sua passione per la black music. Diventa docente di musica nel 2009 e, dopo esperienze musicali a Parigi e a Berlino, nel 2015 intraprende un viaggio negli Usa dove si immerge nelle origini della musica che lo appassiona partecipando a concerti tra New Orleans, Memphis, Clarksdale e Chicago. È a questo punto che decide di racchiudere in un primo disco di brani inediti le idee e le contaminazioni musicali che lo hanno formato. CROSSING MY MIND è il primo album inedito, interamente composto da Pasquale Aprile ed eseguito in collaborazione con diversi musicisti. Il disco racchiude nove tracce autografe con sonorità tinte di rock-blues e funk e trasforma in note e parole le emozioni e l’energia di un artista in continua trasformazione.

1. NO NEED | 4' 08''
I don’t need,
I don’t need your hands!
I don’t need your,
I don’t need your mind!
People, I don’t listen to no one,
sorry, if I am like this!
I don’t live,
I don’t live so far away…
I don’t live,
I don’t live as you say!
People, I don’t listen to anyone,
sorry, I live like this!
I want to be myself,
you have to be yourself.
I hope you will like this way!
People, I don’t listen to anyone,

I hope you will,
I hope you will, like it this way!

2. CHOSE ME | 4' 19''
Chose me,
you’ve chosen me.
You shoved me into the crowd, covering my eyes.
Good man you tell me, good man for you.
What to expect, what to wait for?
You do not know how much this hurts me.
Tired of pretending, brave enough to try!
Look at me while I play, look at me right now.
I got your curiosity, I light your fire.
Don’t go now, come with me!
Don’t go now, come with me!
Want to enjoy it, or run away?
You do not know how much this hurts me.
Tired of pretending, brave enough to try!

You flow into my soul Mississippi,
you’ve seen so many and you have listen even more!
You flow into my blood Mississippi,
I got to see you, where it all began!
I’ve been waiting, I’m touching you.
You’re my dark reality.
We start right where everything is born,
you stole my life!
Finally, me and you,
tell me all about you!
Finally, me and you,
tell me all about you!
You flow into my soul Mississippi,
you’ve seen so many and you have listen even more!
You flow into my blood Mississippi,
I got to see you, where it all began!
I walk alone through the city where,
I listen to people's stories.
I see you again in old people eyes,
sin of my mind…
Finally, me and you,

Finally, me and you,
Take me with you!
You flow into my soul Mississippi,
you’ve seen so many and you have listen even more!
You flow into my blood Mississippi,

Just want to thank you.
You, river of my life!

4. SMELL YOU | 3' 32''
Open your eyes, I will not scare you.
Take me between your fears.
I smell you, I can’t do without you.
I’d be willing to be wrong,
it could help, help me!
Crossing my mind with yours, when it runs away from reason.
Crossing my body with yours, when I want to be right…be right!
Listen to what I need to say,
don’t be mad, try to breathe.
I smell you, I can’t do without you.
I be willing to be wrong,
it could help, help me!
Crossing my mind with yours, when it runs away from reason.
Crossing my body with yours, when I want to be right…be right!
I try not to get too tired,
after all these miles it's time…
To get back in action, find new ways, new roads, new lives!
Crossing my mind with yours, when it runs away from reason.
Crossing my body with yours, when I want to be right…be right!

5. ON YOUR SIDE | 4' 17''
You cried on my shoulders, as there was no tomorrow.
Don't want to go away from a wonderful trip, a wonderful destiny.
I talk to you with confident voice,
I open my past to you, my life to you.
You know that I’ll always be on your side, little woman.
You know that I’ll always be on your side, all the time.
You feel different girl, too small for these empty space.
I will fill it of you, with shiny souls.
I talk to you with confident voice,
I open my past to you, my life to you.
You know that I’ll always be on your side, little woman.
You know that I’ll always be on your side, all the time.

6. SCARS ON MY SKIN | 3' 31''
If I could rewind the tape,
If I could rewind the tape, worn-out.
Made of different lights, other breaths.
If I could relive,
If I could relive everything, everything.
In a moment of madness…
Scars on my skin, tracks of life.
Scars on my skin, they can help you!
I would relive,
I would relive everything, everything.
Without changing a single rustle.
I would relive,
I would relive everything, everything.
To be able to listen,
be able to enjoy!
Other frames of my life,
that make me think…
Other places on my way,
other places on my way,
more scars on my skin!
Scars on my skin, tracks of life.
Scars on my skin, they can help you!

8. SHAKE YOURSELF | 2' 48''
You have so many holes in your soul,
that fuck your brain!
If you want to fill-in them,
shake yourself!
You have so many thoughts in your head,
that fuck your dreams!
If you want to take them back…
We got the cure!
The secret is...
Put your hands together!
You feel you know everything.
You think you’re having fun.
That fucks your brain,
if you want to come with me,
shake yourself!
You have so many thoughts in your head,
that fuck your dreams!
If you want to take them back…
We got the cure!
The secret is...
Put your hands together!

9. CRAZY CLOWN | 4' 17''
You hunt me with your eyes,
while I play the crazy clown.
That I can’t control,
and I would prefer to hide…
If you get in my mind, you enter my mind
I’ll make your day!
You better do this or go back to peace,
it’s something you can’t miss….
You want your crazy clown,
you want to know the crazy clown!
You better do this or go back to peace,
it’s something you can’t miss….
You want your crazy clown,
you want to know the crazy clown!
