Music: Nino Oliviero,

Lyrics: Stefano Canzio.

Year: 1961

Quanno sta 'mbracci'a mme ll'ombra d' 'a sera
E mme ne vaco sulo 'int' â nuttata,
Quanno nun saccio ll'ora,
Quanno nun trovo 'a strada,
Trovo semp' a tte.

Tu, sempe tu,
Tu sempe.
'E chistu core sì 'a musica e ll'aria,
'O cielo lucente
E 'mbracci'a mme viene, ammore mio,
E a mano a mano portame tu pe' chesta via
Addò vuò tu… sultanto tu…
Tu sempe.

Tu sempe… tu sempe.

When the dusk comes down
And I go away alone for walk at night,
When I don't know what time it is,
When I don't find the way,
I always think of you.

You, always you,
Always you.
For my heart you are the music, the air
And the bright sky,
Come into my arms, my love,
And, holding my hand, lead me on this road,
The place you want to go… only you…
Always you.

Always you… always you.
