L. Dalla

Pomeriggi sorto il sole
In bocca tu tenevi un fiore come me
Tra un'ora viene il buio
Vado a casa che dolore
Resta qui con me
Io ero il ladro
Tu la fata
E la vita
Una grande nevicata
Ma tu hai pianto
“occhi per terra”
Ti han sgridato
Tu mi sposi
Te lo guiro
Hai giurato
Un altro lampo
C'era la guerra
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho cercata
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho perduta
Mi sono perso anch'io
Quanta vita che è passata
La notte ti sognavo
Mi svegliavo
Non eri tu
La vita è solo un sogno
è una partenza o un ritorno
Non lo so
Tanti anni in un secondo
Un lampo e tutto torna con lo sconto
Non lo so
Treni, aerei
In giro per il mondo
Quante volte si è perduto
Il mio cuore vagabondo
Sono stato due tre volte in cielo
Ho fatto tutto il cielo a piedi
Lo so che adesso non mi credi
Però
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho cercata
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho perduta
Mi sono perso anch'io
Quanta vita che è passata
La notte ti sognavo
Mi svegliavo
Non eri tu …
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho cercata
Dio …
Quante volte ti ho perduta
Mi sono perso anch'io
Quanta vita che è passata
La notte ti sognavo
Mi svegliavo
Non eri tu …


Translation:
How Many Times Have I Searched For You

Afternoons beneath the sun
You held a flower in your mouth like me
In an hour it will be dusk.
I go home, what anguish -
Stay here with me.
I was the thief,
And you the fay
And you were life,
A great snowfall,
But you wept,
Eyes on the ground,
They rebuked you.
Marry me -
I promise you -
You promised -
Another flash of lightning;
It was war
God ...
How many times have I searched for you
God ....
How many times have I lost you
And I too am lost
How much of life has passed by
At night I used to dream of you,
I would awake -
It wasn't you
Life is but a dream -
A leaving or a return,
I don't know.
So many years in a second,
A flash of lightning and everything comes back, discounted
I don't know.
Trains, airplanes
Circling the globe -
How many times
My vagabond heart was lost.
I have been two or three times in heaven
I have walked heaven end to end
I know you don't believe me now
But ...
God ...
How many times have I searched for you
God ....
How many times have I lost you
And I too am lost
How much of life has passed by
At night I used to dream of you,
I would awake -
It wasn't you .....
God ...
How many times I searched for you
God ....
How many times I lost you
And I too am lost
How much of life has passed by
At night I used to dream of you,
I would awake -
