Col tempo (English translation)

English translation

In time

In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
you do not remember the face anymore
you do not remember the voice
when the heart is silent now
what is the use of looking for
you let yourself go,
and maybe it's better this way.
 
In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
The other you loved,
that you were looking for in the dark
The other you guessed
in a blink of an eye
And between sentences and lines
And the foundation cream
promises promoted
to go out dancing
In time you know,
Everything disappears
 
In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
everything fades
I find myself rummaging
in death windows
when Saturday night
tenderness remains
without company
 
In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
The other you believed
even with a cough
The other you covered,
of jewels and wind
for which you would have pawned
even the soul to the pawnbroker
to which you dragged you
like a dog
In time you know, everything is fine
 
In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
you do not remember the fire anymore
you do not remember the voices
of little people
and their whispering
Do not delay,
cover yourself , how cold it is
 
In time you know,
in time, everything goes away
And you feel the whiteness
of a flattened horse
in a foreign bed,
you feel frozen
lonely, but at the bottom
in peace with the world
and you feel cheated on
by the lost years
 
So you
in time, you know
you do not love anymore...
 
Thanks a lot for your attention!

It is the famous song by Leo Ferrè, 'Avec le temps', translated by the well known singer and author Gino Paoli in Italian language. A lot of singers have performed this version, this one by Dalida is one the most expressive and intense.
