Luciano Pavarotti – Nessun Dorma lyrics

Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!
Tu pure, o, Principessa,
Nella tua fredda stanza,
Guardi le stelle
Che tremano d'amore
E di speranza.

Ma il mio mistero e chiuso in me,
Il nome mio nessun saprб!
No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirу
Quando la luce splenderб!

Ed il mio bacio sciogliera il silenzio
Che ti fa mia!

(Il nome suo nessun saprб!...
E noi dovrem, ahimй, morir!)

Dilegua, o notte!
Tramontate, stelle!
Tramontate, stelle!
All'alba vincerу!
Vincerу, vincerу!

No-one sleeps.... No-one sleeps,
Even you, O Princess,
In your cold room,
Watch the stars
Which tremble with love
And hope!

But my secret is locked within me,
No-one shall know my name!
No, no, I shall say it on your mouth
When the light breaks!

And my kiss will break the silence
That makes you mine!

(No-one shall know his name,
And we, alas, shall die!)

Vanish, o night!
Set, ye stars!
At dawn I shall win!

    To me, Nessun Dorma is about a Princess looking for the right man, but she has gone through so many of the wrong ones she gives up! So to please her parents she make it impossible for any man to marry her. I think many of us put up walls around us once we have gotten hurt too nay times and we do the something; make it impossible for someone to find us. We forget there is no perfect man/woman and we make up impossible characteristics that now one can fill. We, are not perfect the right no is not perfect, so find someone who you share the most things with and will treat you well that is the best you can do! So, people are a diamond literally in the rough! So keep looking.

    This song touched a cord for me in many areas like yearning for that soul mate who gets you and sees all the good in you. Life can never pass you by if you at least give one smile away to someone for. The springs and Potts voice in this opera can transform even the sad at heart.
