Ocean (Oceano)

English translation

Ocean

Versions: #1#2#3

It's raining on the ocean
It's raining on the ocean
It's raining on my identity
Lightning on the ocean
Lightning on the ocean
Glimpses of luminosity
Maybe here in America
The winds of the Pacific
will discover her immensity
My hands grasp
Distant dreams
And my thoughts run to you
I row, I tremble, I feel
Deep and dark abysses
It's for the love I'd give you
It's for the love that you don't know
You make me feel shipwrecked
It's for the love that I have
It's for the love that I want
It's for this suffering
And this love I have for you
What makes me overcome these real storms

Waves on the ocean
Waves on the ocean
That will gently calm
My hands grasp
Distant dreams
It's your breath that breathes on me
I row, I tremble, I feel
The wind deep in my heart
It's for the love I'd have for you
That makes me overcome a thousand storms
It's for the love I'd give you
It's for the love that I want
On this sea
It's for the life that is not
You make me feel shipwrecked
Deep in my heart
All this you would have
and yet to you, everything seems normal

This is not a literal translation in all aspects, but captures the Italian's full meaning pretty well.

Also, in the Italian, line #7 should be "Forse qua in America," as that is how the recorded version has it.
