Andrea Bocelli – Ideale lyrics

Francesco Paolo Tosti /Carmelo Errico

Io ti seguii come'iride di pace
Lungo le vie del cielo;
Io ti seguii come un'amica face
De la notte nel velo.
E ti senti ne la luce, ne l'aria,
Nel profumo dei fiori;
E fu piena la stanza solitaria di te,
Dei tuoi splendori.
In te rapito,
Al suon de la tua voce
Lungamente sognai,
E de la terra ogni affanno, ogni croce
In quel giorno scordai.
Torna, caro ideal,
Torna un istante
A sorridermi ancora,
E a me risplenderà nel tuo sembiante
Una novell'aurora.
... Una novell'aurora.
Torna, caro ideal, torna, torna!


I followed you like a rainbow of peace
A long way across the sky;
I followed you like a friendly face
Of the night under a veil.
And you feel it in the light, in the air,
In the scent of the flowers;
And the solitary room was full of you,
Of your splendors.
Captivated by you,
By the sound of your voice
A long time I dreamed,
And all the worry of the earth, every cross
In that day is forgotten.
Return, beloved ideal,
Return for an instant.
Give me a smile again,
And to me the sparkle of your countenance
Will be a new dawn.
... A new dawn.
