I already know

Versions: #3
I already know
that you'll live
better than me.
 
I already know
that you will manage
to travel far.
 
Just like I already know that you laugh about me,
and those that like me don't know how to live well
and those that like me don't act the way you do
thinking only about yourself.
 
I already know
that you will get
what you want.
 
I already know
that nothing at all
will ever stop you.
 
Just like I already know that you laugh about me,
and those that like me cannot close their eyes,
and those that like me can't say 'I don't care'
Just like you always do.
 
I can only wish you'll never change
because if things will change, for people like you
there won't be a place in the world
there won't be room in the world for those like you.
0 no no no, no, no, no, no, there won't be...
 
(poetic)

Never

You are sad, if I'm away—you think I do not love you.
Tell me why?
 
Never, ever, never, ever will I leave you, you know.
Never, ever, never, ever will you be without my love.
You are my world—do you still not want to understand it?
Without you, my destiny would be wretched.
 
Never, ever, never, ever, never cry for me.
Never, ever, never, ever, because I will always love you.
In my heart, there is only one love—it is you.
Never, ever, never, ever, will I leave you.
 
~~~~~
 
In my heart, there is only one love—it is you.
Never, ever, never, ever, will I leave you.

But Where Are You Going?

But where are you going—but where are you going?
 
Can you tell me to where you are rushing?
You want to climb to the top of the world.
Whatever do you believe you will find?
 
Listen to me—listen to me.
 
You do not realize that, in this world,
people go around in circles
searching for things that they never find.
 
But where are you going—but where are you going?
 
Do not throw away your days
thinking that the moment will come
in which you will become something that you are not.
 
Listen to me—listen to me.
 
Look for yourself a little bit everywhere—
you will see that the everyday world
can give you more than all of your dreams.
 
But where are you going—but where are you going?
 
(poetic)

Hobby

Giorgio, remember when we sat
at a desk together in the mechanics course?
You were very good—I, on the other hand, was not—
and for class assignments, I copied from you.
 
Giorgio, remember when you had
to leave school during the mechanics course?
You had to work—to give your family a hand.
I, on the other hand, could stay—I continued the course.
 
Giorgio, is it true, that, other than your work,
in the evening, as a hobby, you spend time on mechanics?
You think I finished the course and I am a graduate—
yet I have a huge handicap: I understand nothing.

Who Taught Me

Who taught me to speak,
to express what I feel?
Who taught me to speak,
so that I could be understood by others?
 
He did not teach me the words
in order to tell you what I would like.
He did not tell me how I might do it—
to convey to you my love with different words.
 
Who taught me to write
to express a fleeting thought?
Who taught me to write
to trap a fleeting moment?
 
He did not tell me how I might write
something great that you talk about.
He did not tell me how I might write
the long poems that make you dream of me.
 
Who taught me to live
from sunrise to sunset?
Who taught me to live
among the people of the world?
 
He did not tell me how I might live
those long evenings without having you close by.
He did not tell me how I could do it—
to live alone without our love.

Look Out If I

Look out if I should fall in love just with you—
with you so far from my everyday world—
with you so different from me, from my life.
Look out if I should fall in love with you.
 
Look out if I should love you as much as I love you.
I spend hours trying to convince you to change,
and I wouldn't trade you for anyone else in the world.
Look out if I should fall in love with you.
 
Sometimes I wish you were not just
as you are, but, in the end,
I have no idea what I would like.
 
Look out if I was so secure in my life,
I had to meet you and here, from one moment to the next,
in my world of yesterday, I no longer understand anything—
in the world of tomorrow, I see only you.
 
Sometimes I wish you were not just
as you are, but, in the end,
I have no idea what I would like.

Far, Far Away

Very far, far away in time—
something in the eyes of another
will make you remember my eyes—
these eyes that never forgot you.
 
And far, far away in the world,
in the smile on the lips of another,
you will think you see my timid smile,
of which you made a bit of fun.
 
And far, far away in time,
the expression on the face of someone
will make you remember my face—
its sad look that you loved so much.
 
And far, far away in the world,
one afternoon you will go out with someone—
you will speak to him and suddenly, without thinking,
you will discover that you are looking back on
a love too far away.

Kissing You

Simply by kissing you, I understand why
nobody in the world is happier than me.
With your kisses, whatever you want,
you can obtain from me.
 
I know that by kissing you, I will be your slave—
but I will live as a slave of love in heaven—
because up there, beyond the blue sky,
I will rise up kissing you.
 
A kiss means a million things when you are in love.
A smile is much brighter than the stars up above.
Miracles you find in a brilliant bouquet.
Rainbows come inside you in the rain.
 
A kiss means a million things if you understand
the magic it's telling you, you can comprehend.
For within its spell, let it claim your dream.
It's the best you can do, I see.

Day After Day

Versions: #2
Day after day,
time passes by—
the streets always alike—
the same houses.
Day after day,
and all is as it was before—
step after step—
the same life.
 
And the eyes search about
for a future seen in dreams.
But dreams are only dreams
and the future is now almost the past.
 
Day after day,
life passes by.
Tomorrow will be a day much like yesterday.
 
The ship has already left the port
and, from the coast, it appears to be a distant dot.
This evening, someone also
comes back home disillusioned—slowly, slowly.
 
Day after day,
life passes by—
and hope now is a habit.

I Fell in Love with You

Versions: #3
I fell in love with you
because I had nothing better to do.
By day, I wanted to meet someone.
At night, I wanted something to dream about.
 
I fell in love with you
because I could no longer remain alone.
By day, I wanted to talk about my dreams.
At night, I wanted to talk of love.
 
And now that I have a thousand things to do,
I feel my dreams fade away—
and I no longer think
of anything else but you.
 
I fell in love with you
and now I just do not know what to do.
By day, I regret having been with you.
At night, I come searching for you.
 
I fell in love with you
and now I just do not know what to do.
By day, I regret having been with you.
At night, I come searching for you.
