Francie – Aiora (Lyrics)

LYRICS – ENGLISH TRANSLATION

The wind doesn’t know

to tell me the reason why 

we are searching here 

for something that doesn’t exist 

If this is reality 

I wonder why 

fighting here 

for something that doesn’t exist 

 

I have been searching into the waves of the sea

for a story that could be about illusions

that I don’t have anymore

For my dreams

always being against the world

I challenge it with deepen steps

and I see if it keeps the rhythm

 

The wind doesn’t know

to tell me the reason why 

we are searching here 

for something that doesn’t exist 

If this is reality 

I wonder why 

fighting here 

for something that doesn’t exist 

 

On the ground my wings

make me stumble

In the clouds

I spread them in spectacles

of fantasies

In a fine mist

lives dissolve

It is all too loud

to not stay and hear

Francie – Aiora (Testo)

Il vento non sa
spiegarmi perché
si insegue qui
ciò che non c’è
Se questa è realtà
mi chiedo perché
combattere qui
per ciò che non c’è

Ho cercato tra scaglie di mare
una storia che mi raccontasse
illusioni
che non ho più
Per i sogni
sempre in guerra col mondo
Lo sfido a passo profondo e
guardo se tiene il tempo

Il vento non sa
spiegarmi perché
si insegue qui
ciò che non c’è
Se questa è realtà
mi chiedo perché
combattere qui
per ciò che non c’è

A terra le ali
mi fanno sbandare
altrove si spiegano
in teatri di fantasie
In nebbia sottile
le vite si sfaldano
C’è troppo rumore
per non stare a sentire

A new adventure!

Being back from Teatro Studio in Scandicci (Florence) an example of Francie who hasn’t realised yet to be one of the 10 artists selected by Campus della Musica for the Program of Development of Emerging Talent. I have a time of artistic growth ahead of me during which I’ll have the opportunity to work with professional musicians and to make my music project mature. I’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile I want to share with you my joy 🙂

Una nuova avventura!

Un esemplare di Francie, di ritorno dal Teatro Studio di Scandicci, che non ha ancora realizzato di essere tra i 10 selezionati per il Programma di Sviluppo del Talento Emergente del Campus della Musica. Mi aspetta un periodo di crescita in cui avrò l’occasione di lavorare con professionisti del mondo della musica e di far maturare ulteriormente il mio progetto. Vi aggiornerò passo dopo passo. Intanto condivido con voi la mia gioia 🙂

What They Say About My Music

“Francie (real name Francesca Raffagnino) is a unique and refreshing talent – this is a fact that comes across immediately on new single ‘Losers Gonna Be Winners’. Eccentric and free like a Bjork or Kate Bush but with a more direct, punk energy like PJ Harvey or Anna Calvi, Francie has a vibe that screams originality and someone not satisfied with just churning out tunes. No, Francie wants to do something new, something stunning and she’s well on her way with this track.” – Listen with Monger [https://listenwithmonger.blogspot.com/2019/01/francie-single-review.html]

“[..] duplice è l’anima di Francie. Le sue canzoni alternano momenti intimi, che ricordano Nico e Joan Baez, ad altri aggressivi, dove St Vincent dialoga con sonorità trip-hop e un cantato da Siouxsie Sioux. Sembrano mondi paralleli, forse determinati dalla ricerca di uno stile ancora in atto. Eppure, la bravura di Francie sta nel farli comunicare con equilibrio.” – mu. ger. wa [https://www.instagram.com/p/ByHoDB6C31I/?igshid=1k03y8pht2i61]

“Her music could be described as a mixture of indie, alternative pop and acoustic sounds; mesmerizing atmospheres in slow-tempo tracks…Dream-Pop meets Indie-Pop. Lana Del Rey meets Bats For Lashes. Her first EP “The Waste Land” was released in July 2017, and it is a gem. As I listen to the songs, I realize they sound familiar to me. They have a warm feeling. It is as if I have been listening to them my entire life. They make me sad, yet comfortable. They haunt me – absorb me, but they also make me happy.” – Fangtasia Music [https://www.fangtasiamusic.com/en/blog/francie-mesmerizing-atmospheres]

“La cantautrice senese Francesca Raffagnino all’esordio discografico con un ep di quattro brani. Un dream pop malinconico con basi glitch e un’anima acustica cantautorale di stampo brit sono i principali ingredienti di un sound dalle tonalità spesso epiche. Tre brani sono cantati in inglese ma il momento più efficace è nella conclusiva “Falene” nella nostra lingua. Interessante.” – Antonio Bacciocchi [https://www.radiocoop.it/francie-the-waste-land/]

“Francie reminds me of a modern Joni Mitchell with elements of artists Birdy, Dodie, and Bon Iver mixed in, all culminating into heartfelt, gorgeous and meaningful art.” – Indie Witches [https://www.indiewitches.net/blog/francie-your-way]

“I met Francie the good old-fashioned way: on the internet. Her single “Your Way” captivated me, not only with the music but the image for the cover. After interviewing her, I like her even more. She’s brilliant, introspective and I can feel the creativity pouring out of her words.” – Mella Music [https://mellamusic.com/interview-singer-songwriter-francie/]

Francie – Losers Gonna Be Winners – Lyrics

You think that I’m

so boring because I’m good

It’s gonna be a show

that you have never seen before

 

I used to think

I was not enough

I was falling to pieces

 

That was before

that I started letting go

 

So don’t say

I won’t slay

Cause nothing you’re gonna do

nothing you’re gonna say

will stop me

will block me

I know what I wanna do now

I know where I wanna go

 

‘Cause baby I

envy those who get what they want

It’s like a fight for survive

If I fail I’m not out

I’m gonna make it too

 

Beauty may count

but intelligence matters

 

Here there’s a world

You have so many things to know

 

So come pray

to stay

and nothing you’re gonna do

nothing you’re gonna say

will stop me

will block me

I know what I wanna do now

I know where I wanna go

 

When they tell you “you are a loser” don’t ever give up

It’s gonna make you stronger

You lose if you don’t try

Your life, your dreams, your future don’t hear what they say

Cause losers gonna be winners

It’s just a matter of time
