Beautiful Love Song by Eros Ramazzotti and Il Volo

Standard

Another romantic love song by the great Eros Ramazzotti, this time with the help of Il Volo!  Beautiful as always….

Cosí

 

Cosí cosí
L’amore a volte ci dimentica
Ci lascia solo un pugno di ricordi
Come farfalle libere

Cosí cosí
L’amore píano se ne va cosí
In cerca di nuovi sorrisi altrove
Nei cuori di questa cittá

Aíutami a capire cosa sento
Ora nel mio petto c’é un rimpianto
Cosí grande
cosí grande

Il cuore é come un mare senza vento
Muore sulle labbra quell’istante
Che era grande
Cosí grande

Cosí cosí
L’amore piano ci dimentica
Lo fa cosí in modo naturale
Come é arrivato se ne va da me.

Autami a capíre cosa sento
Ora nel mio petto c’e’ un tramonto
Cosí grande
cosí grande

E non so piu’ che cosa sento dentro
Il cuore ha le rughe di un deserto
Che e’ troppo grande
Così grande

Per noi
Che non vogliamo ancora smettere
L’amore e’ un bimbo da rincorrere
Ma come l’alba tornera’

Da noi
L’amore e’ come un uragano
Ma se lo guardi da lontano
Lo vedi anche da qui che e’ grande
Cosí grande
Autami a capire cosa sento
Ti accorgi di un rumore se si e’spento
Quanto e’grande
Cosí grande

Ascolta la tua mano sul mio petto
Quanto fa paura un cielo aperto

Cosí grande
Cosí grande
Cosí grande

Cosí cosi
L’amore adesso ti ha lasciato qui

Ma senti l’aria arriva un temporale
Chi l’avrebbe detto mai

So

So, so
love sometimes forgets about us
it leaves us a handful of memories
like butterflies liberated

So, so
love quietly goes away
to search for new smiles elsewhere
in the hearts of this city

Help me understand what I´m feeling
now in my chest there is a yearning
so big
so big

The heart is like a sea without the wind
it dies on the lips of that moment
it was big
so big

So, so
love silently forgets about us
it does it like this so naturally
like it came it goes away from me

Help me understand what I´m feeling
now in my chest there is a sunset
so big
so big

I don´t know anymore what I feel inside
my heart is dry like a desert
which is too big
so big

For us
who don´t want to stop yet
love is like a child to chase after
but like the dawn it will return

To us

Love is like a hurricane
but if you look at it from afar
you will see also from here, that it is big
so big

Help me understand what I´m feeling
you realize a noise if it is silent
It’s so big
so big

Listen to your hand on my chest
How much fright is an open sky
so big
so big

So big

So, so
love has left you here

But you can feel in the air a storm arriving
who could ever have imagined

Laura Pausini Has Done It Again!

Standard

Laura Pausini’s latest album, Primavera Anticipata, is once again exceptional!  Her incredible voice and interpretations always make me realize the depth of feeling that the Italian language can provoke when the right voice sings it!  All the songs on the album are beautiful, but this one is especially powerful.  Thank you, Laura, once again for your talent!

È inutile che ormai ti ostini a dire no
Negando un fatto ovvio
Tu necessiti di me
Nello stesso modo che anche io di te
Tu lascia che ora sia così
Prendi il sogno che ora è qui
E inizi a crederci
E non andare mai via perchè

Fino a che rimani
Sarà tu il migliore dei miei mali, tu sarai
Di quest’anni avari
L’oro nelle mani, sarò
Lo stesso anche io per te

E basterebbe ammattere
Che comunque quel che c’è
È la prova più evidente
Di un passato sterile
Non concede reppliche
Nel futuro ne al presente, così
Ormai, non tornare indietro mai
Non sacrificare noi, lo sai

Fino a che rimani
Sarà tu il migliore dei miei mali, dei miei mali
Tu sarai
Di quest’anni avari
L’oro nelle mani, è sarò
Lo stesso anche io, lo stesso anche io

Dei miei giorni sani
La cura nelle mani tu sarai
Lo sarò anche io per te

È inutile che ormai
Ti ostini a dire no
Negando un fatto ovvio

It’s useless already that you insist on saying no

negating an obvious fact

you need me

in the same way that i need you.

Just forget that now it’s like this

Take the dream that is now here

and begin to believe

and don’t ever leave because….

Until you remain

you will be the best of my hurts,  you will be

of these greedy years

the gold in my hands, I will be

the same for you, too.

And crazy as it is

and whatever it is

the most evident trial

of a sterile past

doesn’t deserve repitition

in the future nor in the present, like

now, I won’t ever return

Don’t ever sacrifice yourself, you know…

Until you stay

You will be the best of my hurts, of my hurts

You will be

Of these greedy years

the gold within my hands, and I will be

the same for you, the same for you.

Of my sane days

You are the cure

And I will be even for you.

It’s useless that you

continue to insist to say no

Negating an obvious fact.

Parlarti e poi….

Standard

Before I begin, I hope that no one in Italy will judge me for writing a post about a Gigi d’Alessio song!!  Now I know that he has a bad reputation in Italy.  Many claim that his stardom is due to his association with organized crime…others are disgusted by the fact that he left his wife and young children for a woman (or at that time, a girl) half his age.  Yes, I have to agree with all of this.  But, the fact remains that he has interpreted this song perfectly.  So try to forget the man behind the music and enjoy this beautiful poem of passion and love….

It was difficult to find a video to this song that was G-rated!  I ended up chosing this one because the words are written out as the song is being sung – in my opinion, a great way to study Italian!!  This song’s lyrics are perhaps the most romantic I have ever heard…why is it that the language of love is so beautiful in Italian (as you can see from the translation below, unfortunately it’s not quite so romantic in English) ?   The melody and the sentiment stir my heart and every time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. 

Speak to you and then…

I like this life without any rules…

to live it with you.

It’s like a storm without any clouds…

A new day that never dies.

The nights waiting on the telephone

The desire to speak softly with you…

of unforgettable stories, of useless loves, of many things closed within me.

It’s nice, you know,

speaking to you and seeing you in my bed during the night even when you’re not there.

It’s like having you here…here close to me that I can caress your face and get lost within the smile that I have inside of me…

To make love without getting tired and then I smell your perfume inside the emptiness that is in love more than ever…

Come on, hold me tight and make me know that even from far away you are there…

And how many times do I want to join you…

with that crazy desire to hold you near,

to come to your house, to come upstairs slowly to tell you a thousand times that I love you.

It’s nice, you know,

speaking to you and seeing you in my bed during the night even when you’re not there.

It’s like having you here…here close to me that I can caress your face and get lost within the smile that I have inside of me…

To make love without getting tired and then I smell your perfume inside the emptiness that is in love more than ever…

Come on, hold me tight and make me know that even from far away you are there…

Let’s talk some more without end in the darkness of this night…time runs by quickly only with us.

Hold me, my love…

If I close my eyes, you come only into my dreams.
