Lazza's new song, "CENERE" (Ash), is a powerful and moving ballad about lost love. The song was released on February 9, 2023 as the first single from the re-issue of Lazza's third album, Sirio. It was also Italy's entry for the Sanremo Music Festival 2023, where it placed second.

The song begins with a simple piano melody and Lazza's soft vocals. He sings about how he is still thinking about his ex-lover and how he can't seem to move on. He also sings about how he regrets letting them go.

The chorus of the song is particularly poignant:

Aiutami a sparire come cenere
Mi sento un nodo alla gola
Nel buio balli da sola
Spazzami via come cenere
Ti dirò cosa si prova
Tanto non vedevi l'ora
Ma verrai via con me

(Help me disappear like ash
I feel a lump in my throat
You dance alone in the dark
Sweep me away like ash
I'll tell you what it feels like
You couldn't wait
But you'll come away with me)

Lazza's vocals are full of emotion and regret, and the lyrics are sure to resonate with anyone who has ever lost someone they loved.

The second verse of the song is about how Lazza is trying to forget his ex-lover, but he can't seem to get them out of his mind. He sings about how he sees them everywhere he goes and how he hears their voice in his dreams.

The pre-chorus of the song is another standout moment. In it, Lazza sings about how he is "lost without them" and how he doesn't know what to do without them. This line is repeated several times, and it really emphasizes Lazza's pain and loneliness.

The bridge of the song is a beautiful and emotional climax. Lazza sings about how he is "hoping for a miracle" and how he is "praying for a second chance." He also sings about how he is "still in love with them" and how he will never forget them.

The song ends with the chorus again, and Lazza's vocals are even more passionate than they were at the beginning of the song. He is still lost without his ex-lover, and he is still hoping for a second chance.

"CENERE" is a powerful and moving ballad about lost love. Lazza's vocals are full of emotion and regret, and the lyrics are sure to resonate with anyone who has ever lost someone they loved. The song is a reminder that love can be both beautiful and painful, and that it is important to cherish the love that we have.

The song has been praised for its honesty and its emotional impact. It has also been criticized for its lack of hope and its focus on the negative aspects of love. However, there is no doubt that "CENERE" is a powerful song that will stay with you long after you listen to it.



Testo

Ho paura di non riconoscerti mai più non credo più alle favole,
So che ho un posto ma non qui
Tra le tue grida in loop
Corro via su una Cabriolet
Di noi resteranno soltanto ricordi confusi
Pezzi di vetro
Mi spegni le luci se solo tieni gli occhi chiusi
Mi rendi cieco
Ti penso con me per rialzarmi
Sto silenzio potrebbe ammazzarmi

Aiutami a sparire come cenere, mi sento un nodo alla gola, nel buio balli da sola,
Spazzami via come cenere, ti dirò cosa si prova, tanto non vedevi l’ora, ma verrai via con me

Ho visto un paio di Inferni alla volta
So che vedermi così ti impressiona
Primo in classifica ma non mi importa
Mi sento l’ultimo come persona
L’ultima volta che ho fatto un pronostico
È andata a finire che mi sono arreso
Sai che detesto che citi l’oroscopo
Ma non sai quanto con me ci abbia preso.
Ti prego abbassa la voce o da sta casa ci cacciano proprio
Ormai nemmeno facciamo l’amore
Direi piuttosto che facciamo l’odio
Ora ti sento distante io schifo il mondo
E tu guardi
Cercavo una verità che è sempre in mano ai bugiardi

Aiutami a sparire come cenere, mi sento un nodo alla gola, nel buio balli da sola,
Spazzami via come cenere, ti dirò cosa si prova, tanto non vedevi l’ora,
Puoi cancellare il mio nome, farmi sparire nel fumo,
come un pugnale nel cuore, come se fossi nessuno,
via come cenere, cenere

Vorrei che andassi via lontana da me, ma sei la terapia.

Rinasceremo insieme dalla cenere,
Mi sento un nodo alla gola, nel buio balli da sola,
Bella che mi sembri Venere,
scendi che il tempo non vola, sono qua sotto da un’ora
Tu sei più calda del Sole, io invece freddo Mercurio
Lasciamo quelle parole, dimenticate nel buio
Via come cenere, cenere
