sings


Stanotti mi sentu filici,
La luna no celu risplenni,
Li stiddi sù comu lumini
Ca jocanu cu l'occhi to'.

Aspettu ca veni dumani
Pi strincirti ancora cchiù forti.
D'amuri ti vogghiu parlari,
Tu sì lu mè primu amuri.

E quannu tu sì a latu a mmia
Mi ardi un focu 'ndo pettu.
L'amuri ca sentu pi ttia
Mi pari ca fussi bugia.

Lu cori mi sbatti cchiù forti,
Mi pari ca bboli cu ttia.
Mi dici ca nun è bugia
E pensu di viriri a ttia.

Ti viju cu l'occhi do cori
Ti sentu ca dintra 'i me' vini.
Sì tu ca iu vogghiu pi mmia,
La mè vita cu chidda tò.

Ti parlu, ti cuntu e ti cantu
La gioia chi dintra di mmia.
Tu sì lu mè raggiu di suli
Ca illumina l'anima mè.

E quannu tu sì a latu a mmia
Mi ardi un focu 'ndo pettu.
L'amuri ca sentu pi ttia
Mi pari ca fussi bugia.

Lu cori mi sbatti cchiù forti,
Mi pari ca bboli cu ttia.
Mi dici ca nun è bugia
E pensu di viriri a ttia.

Tonight I feel happy,
The moon is shining in the sky,
The stars are like the sparks
That are playing in your eyes.

I'm waiting for tomorrow
To embrace you tighter all over again.
I wish I talked with you about love,
You are my first love.

And when you are beside me
You ignite the fire in my heart.
Love that I feel for you
Seems to me as if an illusion.

My heart is beating faster,
It seems to me that flies away with you.
You tell me it's not an illusion
And I want to see you again and again.

I'm looking at you with loving eyes,
I feel you in my veins.
I want for me only you
My life is only with yours.

I say to you, I tell you, I sing you
About the joy that I feel inside me.
You are my ray of the sun
That illuminates my soul.

And when you are beside me
You ignite the fire in my heart.
Love that I feel for you
Seems to me as if an illusion.

My heart is beating faster,
It seems to me that flies away with you.
You tell me it's not an illusion
And I want to see you again and again.
