Caruso

 

Qui dove il mare luccica
e tira forte il vento
su una vecchia terrazza davanti al golfo di Sorrento
un uomo abbraccia una ragazza
dopo che aveva pianto
poi si schiarisce la voce e ricomincia il canto

Te voglio bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
e' una catena ormai
che scioglie il sangue dint' e' vene sai

Vide le luci in mezzo al mare
pensò alle notti la in America
ma erano solo le lampare
e la bianca scia di un'elica
sentì il dolore nella musica
si alzò dal Pianoforte
ma quando vide la luna uscire da una nuvola
gli sembrò più dolce anche la morte
Guardò negli occhi la ragazza
quegli occhi verdi come il mare
poi all'improvviso uscì una lacrima
e lui credette di affogare

Te voglio bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
e' una catena ormai
e scioglie il sangue dint'e vene sai

Potenza della lirica
dove ogni dramma e' un falso
che con un po' di trucco e con la mimica
puoi diventare un altro
Ma due occhi che ti guardano
così vicini e veri
ti fanno scordare le parole
confondono i pensieri.

Così diventò tutto piccolo
anche le notti la in America
ti volti e vedi la tua vita
come la scia di un'elica

Ah si, e' la vita che finisce
ma lui non ci pensò poi tanto
anzi si sentiva felice
e ricominciò il suo canto

Te voglio bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
e' una catena ormai
che scioglie il sangue dint'e vene sai

Here were the sea is gleaming,
and the wind’s blasting away,
on a terrace old ‘n’ beaming,
in front of Sorrento’s bay,

A man’s hugging a girl he wants to rejoice
after her tears were flinging
then he is clearing his voice
and he recommences singing

I love you very much so
yet all so very much you know
it’s a chain since long ago
that’s tying our blood in the veins you know

He looked at the lights out in the sea
like all nights in America so stellar
but they could only fishing lamps be
and the white wake from a propeller

He felt the pain in the music weighing
and he left the grand piano deepened
but when he saw the moon behind a cloud displaying
even death seemed to him more sweetened

He looked deep inside the girl’s eyes
these green eyes like the sea astounding
and all of a sudden he felt a tear arise
and he thought that he was drowning

I love you very much so
yet all so very much you know
it’s a chain since long ago
that’s tying our blood in the veins you know

How powerful the lyrics are
where every drama is artful
that a little makeup and mimics are
turning you to some oth'r fool

But a pair of eyes staring you
so very close and truthful
they make your words failing you
and your broken thoughts unuseful

Like this everything seems minor
e'en those nights in America, the stellar
you turn and see your life no more
than a white wake from a propeller

But yes, it is the life that’s ending
but didn't give it a second thinking
on the contrary it felt contenting
and he recommences singing

I love you very much so
yet all so very much you know
it’s a chain since long ago
that’s tying our blood in the veins you know

I love you very much so
yet all so very much you know
it’s a chain since long ago
that’s tying our blood in the veins you know
