Ti avrei tenuto nel mio cuore
I would have held you in my heart
Ti avrei preso tra le mani
I would have taken you in my arms (or hands)

Illuminato io ti avrei
I would have lit you up

(con) il sole che era negli occhi miei
(with) the sun that was in my eyes

PerЁ° aspettare tu non sai
But you don't know how to wait

Volevi vivere e tu vivrai
You wanted to live, and you will live




Il tuo diamante splenderа
Your diamond will shine
Ma il cuore freddo resterа
But your heart will remain cold

Avresti avuto quel che ho
You would have had what I have (to offer)

Non ti avrei detto mai di no
I'd never have said 'no' to you

Potevi piangere con me
You could cry with me

Potevi ridere con me
You could laugh with me

PerЁ° aspettare tu non sai
But you don't know how to wait

Volevi tutto e tu l'avrai
You wanted it all, and you'll get it




Il tuo diamante splenderа
Your diamond will shine
Ma il cuore freddo resterа
But your heart will remain cold

E quando tu ti accorgerai
And when you realize

Ritorna qui se tu lo vuoi
Come back, if you want to

Che qualche cosa forse avrai
And maybe you will get something

E il mio pianto finirа
And my lament will end

E dopo stanca ritornerai
And after you return, worn out

E la mia strada riprenderа
And once I'm able to take up my path in life again




Il tuo diamante getterai
Your diamond you will throw away
E il sole caldo troverai
And you will rediscover the hot sun

Troverai Ёc yeah
You'll find it yeah

Troverai Ёc yeah
You'll find it yeah

Troverai ...
You'll find it
