lyrics

In a garden full of little heads
The cat no longer smiled
Mad as any hatter
She looked around and sighed
Children laughing at her
She turned her back and cried
She turned her head and lied
Then turned off her mind and died

Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
She was a precious child
She was her daddy’s smile
All that remains is a dream
Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
Now my poor heart it seems
Is all shredded and cold
For my dear Sonia

Like the Woolf before her
She loaded her pockets with stones
And not looking back
She waded in deeper
“It’s cold,” she gasped, “Oh, so cold.”
Wine-soaked and sleep deprived
She’d somehow lost her way
With silent screams of apathy
She hummed the song of day

Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
She was a precious child
She was her daddy’s smile
All that remains is a dream
Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
Now my poor heart it seems
Is all shredded and cold
For my dear Sonia

Sonia, cara mia, quanto ti amo
Non è giusto che ne sei andata

The ghostly embrace of winter’s first kiss
On Ferris wheels in the dark
She gestured with a hand that shook
With the sadness of her soul
The rabbit hole is empty now
The hatter’s no longer mad
The Cheshire cat no longer smiles
The Red Queen only laughs

Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
She was a precious child
She was her daddy’s smile
All that remains is a dream
Did you hear of what happened?
She died in the black of the night
Now my poor heart it seems
Is all shredded and cold

about

Juana Ghani

Juana Ghani’s music is a marriage of Old World traditions and Rock-n-Roll energy all wrapped up in the dreams of Gypsy legend. It is at once lively and dark, always teetering on the edge of sanity and taunting Imagination’s greatest landscapes.
