Portal (OST) - Cara Mia Addio


Cara Mia Addio

Cara bella, cara mia bella!
Mia bambina, Oh Chell!
Ché la stimo…
Ché la stimo.
O cara mia, addio!
La mia bambina cara,
perché non passi lontana?
Sì, lontana da Scïenza,
Cara, cara mia bambina?
Ah, mia bella!
Ah, mia cara!
Ah, mia cara!
Ah, mia bambina!
O cara, cara mia…

Submitter's comments:

The sentence "Mia Bambina, o Chell"is not a typo, nor has nothing to do with "ciel", "cielo" or other similar words, nor is it used as a vocative. "Chell" is the name of the mute protagonist of the Portal games, whom this song is adressed to.

o Chell! ---> Oh ciel!

Nope. The mute protagonist of Portal, whom this song adresses, is called Chell. Not ciel.
Also note that the song is in italian, where the proper word would be "cielo", not "ciel".

Wouldn't it be better to add an annotation to avoid confusion? To someone who's not familiar with the game, it definitely sounds like "oh, ciel".
