Little things (Le piccole cose)

Angol translation

Little things

When you don't know what you want anymore
You've already got a hold of that without realizing it
When you should stay here
And instead you go farther... Something is pushing you farther
When everybody says no
What you'd do can't be done
This is the one you'll do it... For you, it'd never be through
For you, it'd never be through...
 
It's thrills you can't buy
Instants that won't return... Won't return
Won't return...
 
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things
 
When you throw a stone and it sinks
The water is so dark that you can't see it anymore
But it leaves behind rings getting larger... Getting larger
Getting larger...
 
It's thrills you can't buy
Instants that won't return... Won't return
Won't return...
 
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things
While time goes by so slowly
The meaning of little things fade away
The little things...
 
If the text above is submitted as a rhythmical or rhyming translation, that means: a version that aims to retain the metric pattern of the original, so as to have a text to sing along to, in a karaoke fashion, or at least to preserve the rhyming scheme. The fun part is trying to mimic both the metrics and the rhyming structure of lyrics written in another language, while keeping the meaning (uhm, overall) the same. But the text will not be translated verbatim.
That I am not going to do when the song is yet to be translated in a literal way. I may be handling that part first, every now and then.

I'm ever glad to receive suggestions, and if you spot a mistake, do make me notice: it will be very much appreciated.
