A Beautiful Italian Love Song

Standard

Andrea Bocelli, one of Italy’s most prolific and also most popular artists, sings an incredible amount of beautiful love songs.  His clear voice, along with this gorgeous melody, can easily allow you to feel all the emotion that this song talks about.  You can feel the pain, and the love, for that special someone.  Aaahhh…to be so loved that a song like this could be written about….

I have included the Italian words and also their English translations – somehow the words lose a bit in the translation, but the meaning is still clear…and heartbreaking.

Mi manchi
Quando il sole da la mano all’orizzonte
Quando il buio spegne il chiasso
della gente
La stanchezza addosso che non
va più via
Come l’ombra di qualcosa
ancora mia.

Mi manchi
Nei tuoi sguardi
E in quell sorriso un pò incosciente
Nelle scuse di quei tuoi probabilmente
Sei quell nodo in gola
che non scende giù
E tu e tu

Mi manchi mi manchi
Posso far finta di star bene ma mi manchi
Ora capisco che vuol dire
Averti accanto prima di dormire
Mentre cammino a piedi nudi
dentro l’anima

Mi manchi e potrei
Cercarmi un’altra donna
ma m’ingannerei
Sei il mio rimorso senza fine
Il freddo delle mie mattine
Quando mi guardo intorno
E sento che mi manchi

Ora che io posso darti un pò di più
E tu e tu

Mi manchi e potrei
Cercarmi un’altra donna
ma m’ingannerei
Sei il mio rimorso senza fine
Il freddo delle mie mattine
Quando mi guardo intorno
E sento che mi manchi.

I miss you -
When the sun touches the horizon
When darkness covers the sounds
of the people,
The listlessness no longer
goes away
Like the shadow of something
that’s still mine

I miss you -
In your look
In that thoughtless smile
In those excuses of yours,
You’re the lump in my throat
that doesn’t go away
And you, and you

I miss you, I miss you
I can pretend to be okay but I miss you
Now I know what it means -
To have you near before going to sleep
While I stand undisguised
within my soul

I miss you and I could
find another woman
but I’d be cheating myself
You’re my regret without an end and
The chill of my mornings,
When I look around
And feel that I miss you.

Now that I can give you a little more -
And you, and you

I miss you and I could
have another woman
but I’d only be cheating myself,
You’re my regret without an end and
The chill of my mornings,
When I look around

and feel that I miss you
