Lucio Dalla - Caruso (English translation)

English translation

Caruso

Here where the sea sparkles
And the wind blows hard
On an old terrace
In front of the Gulf of Sorrento
A man embraces a young woman
After she has cried
He steadies his voice
And recommences his song
 
I love you very much,
Very very much, you know
It's like a chain now
That releases the blood inside the veins, you know
 
He saw the lights in the middle of the sea
He thought of the nights in America
But they were only the lights from the boat
And the white wake of a propeller
He felt the sadness in the music
And got up from the piano
But when he saw
the moon emerge from behind a cloud
To him even death seemed sweeter
He looked into the eyes of the young woman
Those eyes, green like the sea
She suddenly shed a tear
And he thought he was drowning
 
I love you very much,
Very very much, you know
It's like a chain now
That releases the blood inside the veins, you know
 
Power of the opera
Where every drama is false
That with a little makeup and with gestures
You can become someone else
But two eyes that watch you
So near and true
They make you forget the words
They confuse your thoughts
 
Thus everything becomes small
Even the nights there in America
You turn around and see your life
Like the wake of a propeller
 
But it is life that ends
But he wasn't thinking much about it
He was already happy
And recommenced his song
 
I love you very much,
Very very much, you know
It's like a chain now
That releases the blood inside the veins, you know
