Songs to dedicate by a mother to a son

One of the best songs ever written to celebrate the arrival of a child is You will have by Claudio Baglioni. The Roman singer-songwriter wrote this song for the birth of his son Giovanni in 1982 and it is a real hymn to life, to the hope of a smiling future, of great projects but also of the awareness of the importance of recognizing the beauty that is hidden in little things. An authentic poem in music.

Here the text and the VIDEO

You will have smiles on your face like crickets and stars in August

Stories photographed in a leather-bound album

Thunder of supersonic planes that make you look up

And the darkness at dawn that turns silver at the window

You will have a phone nearby which already means waiting

Foam of crazy breakers chasing each other in the sea

And white pants to pull out that already summer

A train to America without stops

You will have two sweeter tears to dry

A sun that kills itself and clam fishermen

And snow of mountains and rain of hills

You will have a stick of cremino to suck

You will have an immature woman and a young pain

Avenues of burning leaves to set your heart on fire

You will have a chair to lay down and hours

As empty as chocolate eggs

And a friend who will have disappointed you betrayed deceived

You will have you will have you

Your time to go far

You will walk forgetting

You will stop dreaming

You will have you will have you

My own sad hope

And you will feel that you have never loved enough

If you love love you will have

You will have new words to look for when evening comes

And a hundred bridges to cross and make the railing ring

The first cigarette that smokes in your mouth a little cough

Christmas holly and red candles

You'll have a job to sweat

Soaked mornings of chills and dew

Electronic games and stones in the street

You will have memories of umbrellas and keys to forget

You will have caresses to talk to the dogs

And it will always be on Sunday tomorrow

And you will have closed speeches inside and hands

Who rummage the pockets of life

And a radio to hear that the war is over

You will have you will have you

Your time to go far

You will walk forgetting you will stop dreaming

You will have you will have you

My own sad hope

And you will feel that you have never loved enough

If love love love you will have

Which is worth living

What a rush you've been waiting for already

For you and for us

Try to be ready for us

Listening you will teach me

That you can, that it is worth living

Let her have the best I have

The worst, you will find it yourself

You will ask me yes, but why?

I just know I'll tell you

It is worth it you will see

Images that leave their mark

and they will stay in my eyes over time

if I look at you I see myself again

you fall asleep and in silence

I feel the beating of your heart

now that you have become the reason that moves me

You, you invent your sky between lines of color

You, who gave my life the sound of your name

You, you turned everything else into a background

You, of my existence are the essence

And so

you managed to change me

finding myself

maybe a better man

I will protect you from the wind

Then I'll watch you blossom

you are my motivation

the passion that moves me

You, you invent your sky between lines of color

You, who gave my life the sound of your name

You, you turned everything else into a background

You, of my existence are the essence

You, you turned everything else into a background

You, of my existence are the essence
