A Song for the Fallen of Reggio Emilia

You comrade and citizen, you brother partisan,
let's hold all by the hand in these saddest days:
again in Reggio Emilia, again down there in Sicily
some comrades have fallen by the hand of the fascists.
 
And again like in the past,
days all Italy is swept
by raging winds
and the storm is blowing.
 
Ovidio Franchi died at the age of nineteen
for those who feel tired or are prey to doubt.
Lauro Farioli died so to remedy your fault
if you've already forgotten Duccio Galimberti.
 
They all died about twenty,
they died for our future,
they all died like old partisans.
 
Marino Serri died, so did Afro Tondelli,
but all our brothers have kept their eyes dry.
Comrades, never forget
that this bitter blood
shed in Reggio Emilia
is our own blood.
 
Blood of our own blood,
nerves of our own nerves,
just like the blood of the Cervi brothers.
 
The only true friend staying beside us now
is always the same who was with us on the mountains,
and the enemy is always and will always be the same
as that we fought against on the mountains and in Spain
 
And it's the same song
that we have to sing:
we got worn shoes, and yet we've to go on.
 
Comrade Ovidio Franchi,
comrade Afro Tondelli,
and you, Marino Serri, Reverberi and Farioli,
from now on, we'll act as if you were beside us,
by our side forever, so not to feel alone.
 
Fallen of Reggio Emilia, get out from your grave,
get out and sing with us Bandiera Rossa,
get out and sing with us Bandiera Rossa!

This one tango

This one tango sounds always
And my torment never ceases
And I know well that I can’t make it stop
Because it is deep in my heart
 
This one tango sounds always
And always I hear it loud and clear
Whether I’m far or near
When I don’t want to hear
Because it talks about us
 
You know that
I’m thinking of you
I’m seeing you
Again - you hear this tango,
The tango I was dancing -
Was dancing happily with you
 
Every time that I’m hearing it
I am thinking back to our love, dear
 
And now you are no longer here
I know that you will not return
But this one tango makes me yearn
To be with you
 
I know that you too
Are hearing this one tango
You can’t forget the days, dear
You have spent together with me

Will never end

I have given to my lover a little cherry that did not have a pit inside
I have given to my lover a little chicken that did not have bones
I have given to my lover a little baby that would never cry
I have given to my lover a little story that would never end
But how can there be a little cherry that does not have a pit inside
But how can there be a little chicken that does not have bones
But how can there be a little baby who would never cry
And who ever listened to a story that would never end
But when a cherry is in bloom, it does not have a pit inside
A little chick when being born does not have any bones,
And a little baby would not cry when being asleep
And the story of my love will never never never end
And the story of my love will never never never end
And the story of my love will never never never end
And the story of my love will never never never end
And the story of my love will never never never end

Tonight at the Luna Park

A melancholic accordion.
That seems to cry and weep with me
The tired rides already made to stop
And fall asleep so it seems
 
A bandwagon abandoned
Looks hiding in its silence
And I am waiting for a man.
Who I don’t love...
 
He’ll come, he’ll come.
Tonight to the Luna Park
He’ll come to me
And I will hear footsteps
The footsteps that are seeking me.
While lights around are dying off
 
He’ll come, he’ll come
and then will give a kiss
But he’ll not know
What other man won’t miss
 
Another man who wants to live
Right in the midst of clear skies.
I also want a love that’s sincere
Discover the life in all his kisses
And then, go and meet the sun
I will leave what has been in my past
Far, far behind
 
La la la...
 
Another man who wants to live
Right in the midst of clear skies.
I also want a love that’s sincere
Discover the life in all his kisses
And then, go and meet the sun
I will leave what has been in my past
Far, far behind

Mother Sea

Versions: #1
Param param param, I am turning around, I am dancing
at the winter's sand with the seaweeds
The sick sea I'm healing
and I'm making earrings with the stars
 
param param param is waiting
at time's open sea the ship
my life is begging for an anchor
to grasp her love's depth
 
Sea mother you, my salt taste
light blue fate
as a gold safety pin in the shoulder I took the sun
Sea memory, my black silver
take my heart and make it an island
of wild wind
 
Sea mother you, my salt taste
light blue fate
as a gold safety pin in the shoulder I took the sun
Sea memory, my black silver
take my heart and make it an island
of wild wind
 
param param param like a fairytale
the full moon is a shipwreck in the clouds,
Νeptune's iron body,
which stone museum locks you up
 
Sea mother you, my salt taste
light blue fate
as a gold safety pin in the shoulder I took the sun
Sea memory, my black silver
take my heart and make it an island
of wild wind.

Mum

How it hurts now
My love, how it hurts
All's different now
How different it is now
what's my name now
My love, what's my name
and I carry my pain
as if it was a dog
What's biting?
Shouts loud inside
That perhaps I never understood anything
I thought it was going well
and your glass was half empty
 
Mum, how it hurts now
mum, how it hurts now
Without you
 
Who's gonna protect me now
under this silence's rain
Where am I gonna search you now
In this cemented sea
and I try going out
Dressing up, getting angry at least with the government
Reading the newspaper, brushing myself
Pointing the alarm every day
I walk alone like a dog
and thank God it's not Xmas
But, where are you, and where am I
Your hands, where are your Hands
 
Mum, how it hurts now
Mum, how it hurts now
Mum, how it hurts now
Mum, how it hurts now
Without you...

Shouldn't I have expected it?

Shouldn't I have expected it?
Ever since the party where you were laughing
And paying me compliments?
While at the same time she had no idea
And was making her way through various friends
Shouting towards all of them that you were great
That you were loving and faithful
And how much she liked your charm?
While I ways lying down in your arms
And you were telling my many nice things
And you were complaining about her?
 
Shouldn't I have expected it?
The way you're squirming now
Feeling nothing but sympathy
And then, while you're drinking far too much
You're breaking to me in sweet words
That you're not not the man for me
And that my pain will fade
That I'm far too good for you
That you now, how I feel
And that we should stay friends
And that we should write each other once in a while?
 
Shouldn't I have expected
That it would end one day?
Was I really blind enough
To believe that I knew you
And that nobody could separate us?
Have I lost my mind?
Why can't I still believe it
Neither believe it, nor understand it?
It was foreseeable
Which ever way you look at it :
 
It was my fault
It was my fault
It was my fault
It was my fault

You've Got it Good

You have an enviable disposition
You are very tough and you forget very quickly
If only I had such a thick skin too
You've got it good
 
When it's time to do so, you masterfully tame your anger
You always show you keep a cool head in times of emergency
Even when you lose, you never lose heart
You've got it good
 
Have you got it good because of the type [of person] you are
If you are spared so much suffering?
Does my nature also rub me the wrong way?
You have got twice the joy that I've got
 
Everything that you start, you do thoughtfully
You have never stayed up even one bad night
And you have never laughed at yourself
You've got it good
 
Whatever you don't want to see, you don't see
That way you never lose your balance as well
You are not someone who would lose sleep racking his brains1
You've got it good

Lalalalalalalalalala...

Betrayal

But woman, what are you doing ?
Why do you go ?
Because you're not
The love that makes me live anymore ?
 
I'll change if you want,
I'll be like you,
A shadow that you
Could always tame.
 
Don't do it without me,
It's raining and you
(you) will bathe,
(you) will be ill.
Without me,
Where will you go ?
 
I'll work,
I'll dress you,
I'll bury you
And you'll always be esteemed
 
And I'll walk
The way you do,
I will deliver you
From the dreams I have
To spend
 
Don't do it without me,
It's raining and you
(you) will bathe,
(you) will be ill.
Without me,
Where will you go ?

None of you

None of you speaks about him,
tells me the truth.
What point has now your pity
when I have nothing left.
 
If one of you has ever loved like this
then he/she will understand,
will understand,
will understand!
 
If you hear me, my love,
return to me, here to me,
I love you very much
and would not live without you.
 
I don't cry for myself,
I cry for him,
nobody will understand him
as I do!
 
None of you, none of you
tells me the truth.
If other is with him, what does it matter,
I know that I will forgive him.
 
Where are you? Who are you with?
 
If you hear me, my love
return to me, here to me,
I love you very much
and wouldn't live without you.
 
I don't cry for myself,
I cry for him,
Nobody will understand him
as I do!
 
If you hear me, my love,
return to me, here to me,
I love you very much
and would not live without you.
 
I would not live without you,
without you.

Come Back to me

You've written that you have reached your goal
And that you are fine
All the palms (Palm leaves) are fanning you
Oh, I've read it and was happy for you
But oh how hurtful is it..
Because I'm waiting for a miracle
After you were gone my time stood still
I do not want any more false consolation
All I want is:
 
Come back to me!
Come back to me!
An eternal winter burns me
Without your glance.
I do not need your sympathy
In my dreams you cool my face
Come and give me a second life
Forgive me and come back to me!
 
I made mistakes, I learned from them
Today I see clearly
The two of us were greater than the two of us alone
Oh, yes, I doubted the very thing that made my life shine
And then it was too late
Because I'm waiting for a miracle
After you were gone my time stood still
I do not want any more false consolation
All I want is:
 
Come back to me!
Come back to me!
An eternal winter burns me
Without your glance.
Come back to me!
Come back to me!
An eternal winter burns me
Without your glance.
I do not need your sympathy
In my dreams you cool my face
Come and give me a second life
Forgive me and come back to me!
And come back to me!
And come back to me!
And come back to me!
 
Let me know if you have any questions about my translation. Good luck.

People in power

They act very determined on TV
And if they have to, very vexed
They show dignity
That high an office always is a heavy burden
As you see
And they don't walk when they walk, no, they stride
Their tone stays, even when they're argueing
Always appropriate
Even their meals
Are still work, called working meals
Bon appetite
 
People in power
Admirable
But they're people
That's why viewing their work
With healthy suspicion
Is never wrong
 
Often they talk without saying anything
They get impacient with questions
They know better
Oh, you don't envy them
They always have to make decisions
Suffer low blows
The air is pretty thin
It's an exciting life
Nothing but directing
Nothing but thinking
Everything for the agenda
Everything for us
 
People in power
Admirable
But they're people
That's why viewing their work
With healthy suspicion
Is probably never wrong

Him

Him
That was him
I am sure
You can feel something like this as a woman
Him
That was him
If he recognized me, I really don't know for sure
Him
I just know, I once liked him a lot
He even followed me at the beginning
Him
That was him
Raised shoulders
A reserved face
Him
That was him
At first I wanted to call out
But then I didn't have the courage
Him
The times with him were long ago
Would he have been my happiness?
Him
 
Him
That was him
He, of whom I though,
That none of his weaknesses would bother me
Him
That was him
He, who I trusted
That he was all mine
Him
He was making life quite hard for me
Then he told me: I don't want anymore
Him
Him
Him

Hurray, we're still alive

How strong is the human? How strong?
How many fears, how much pressure can he withstand?
Is he even as strong as he often thinks?
Who can say that?
 
Hurray, we're still alive!
What not did we have to go through
And are still alive!
What didn't we all have to endure?
The bruise on our soul will eventually go away.
We're still alive.
 
Hurray, we're still alive!
After each ebb comes a flow as well
We're still alive
Doesn't this feeling give us new courage and confidence
This is not as obvious
We're still alive
 
How strong is the human? How strong?
In adversity, nor wrath nor lamenting will help
Who despairs out of anger and does nothing anymore
Will lose
 
Hurray, we're still alive!
What not did we have to go through
And are still alive!
What didn't we have to endure of monotony?
The chalice passed us again
We're still alive
 
Hurray, we're still alive!
After each ebb comes a flow as well
We're still alive
Doesn't this feeling give us new courage and confidence
This is not as obvious
We're still alive
 
Hurray, we're still alive!
After all the dark we see light again
We're still alive!
This sentence got a different weight
So terrible it is, it helps, if you never forget:
We're still alive
We're alive

On the Wings of Colourful Dreams

In a small town in Peru
I have lived for so long,
All the men listened to me,
When my song sounded hot.
So many gave me their hearts,
But that wasn't new to me.
I infatuated everyone,
Answered no one,
I remained true to you.
 
I dreamed of seeing foreign lands,
Perhaps the whole word,
To visit all the big towns,
As often as I like.
But what I experienced in the dreams,
Will never come true,
Because my longing realises,
That what burns within me,
Is only an illusion.
 
On the wings of colourful dreams
My song flies through the world
From Broadway to the stars.
Its words are only foam,
But they sing and ring quietly
In your heart.
Who hears it, feels its rhythm,
Who hears it, forgets their pain.
 
On the wings of colourful dreams
My song rings through the world
From Broadway
To your heart.
