La Luna (LYRICS)

:: album details

1. La Lune

Sous les nuages de la nuit
Je marche vers la clairière.
D'un éclat argenté je la vois,
La lune.

Elle porte les voiles de l'éternité,
Son auréole embrasse les étoiles, ma lune.


2. Winter In July

Look around wonder why
We can live a life that's never satisfied
Lonely hearts troubled minds
Looking for a way that we can never find
Many roads are ahead of us
With choices to be made
But life's just one of the games we play
There is no special way

Make the best of what's given you
Everything will come (...thing will come in...)
In time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass (don't let it pass you...)
You by, like winter in July

Future dreams can never last
When you find yourself
Still living in the past (oh)
Keep moving on to higher ground
Looking for the way
You thought could not be found
We may not know the reason why
We're born into this world
(Never, never know the reason why)
Where a man only lives to die
His story left untold

Make the best of what's given you
Everything will come (...thing will come in...)
In time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass (don't let it pass you...)
You by, like winter in July...

And we may not know the reason why
We're born into this world
(Never, never know the reason why)
Where a man only lives to die
And his story left untold

So make the best of what's given you
Everything will come (...thing will come in...)
In time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass you by,
Like winter in July


3. Scarborough Fair

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He was once a true love of mine

Tell him to make me a cambric shirt
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without no seams nor needle work
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Between salt water and the sea strands
Then he'll be a true love of mine...

Tell him (her) to reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And gather it all in a bunch of heather
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He was once a true love of mine


4. Figilio Perduto

Muri die vento
Notte è scesa
Padre e figlio sono insiem
Con un cavallo
Vanno avanti
In questa grande oscurità
Ma ad un tratto
Il bimbo trema
Dalla paura
Freddo si fa

Padre oh padre
Tu non hai visto
Re degli elfi
Eccolo la
Figlio perduto,
Vuoi far un gioco?
Gioia ti porto
Vieni con me
Padre oh padre
Hai già sentito
Cosa mi dice
E che vuol' far'?

Figlio perduto
Se tu non vieni
Io userò la forza che ho
Padre oh padre
Re degli elfi
Mi sta toccando
Male mi fa

E il bambino,
Con occhi chiusi
Lui non si muove
Perso è già

Figlio
Figlio perduto
Se tu non vieni
Io userò la mia forza
Padre oh padre
Re degli elfi
Mi sta toccando
Male mi fa
E il bambino,
Con occhi chiusi
Lui non si muove
Perso è già

Perso è già


5. A Whiter Shade Of Pale

We skipped the light Fandango
Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
I was feeling kind of seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought a tray

And so it was that later
As the Miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see
(And the truth is plain to see)
But I wandered through my playing cards
I would not let her be (I would not let her be)
One of the sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well've been closed

And so it was that later
As the Miller told his tale
(As the Miller told his tale)
That her face, at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale


6. He Doesn't See Me

Ah...Ooh...

When he passes me by, he's a ray of light
Like the first drop of sun from the sky
And I know he's a king, who deserves a queen
But I'm not a queen
And he doesn't see me

When he dances,
He moves me to a smile (smile)
And I see everything near him shine (shine)
There's a grace in his ways that I can't contain
I haven't that grace
Oh I haven't that grace

And the closer he gets I can't help but hide
So ashamed of my body and voice
There are boundaries we pass
In spite of the war
But our own we can't seem to cross (ah)

She has a way that surrounds her so delicate
With a glory that reigns in her life (in her life)
She is also so much that she is not (she is not)
These things I can't see
'Cause he doesn't see me
Ooh...
And he doesn't see me...

Aah...
There are things we can change
If we just choose to fight
But the walls of injustice are high

When he passes me by he's a ray of light
Like the first drop of sun from the sky
And I know he's a king who deserves a queen
Someone other than me
So different from me

Aah..
He doesn't see me
Aah...
He doesn't see me
He doesn't see me


7. Serenade
(instrumental)


8. How Fair This Place
(Russian lyrics)


9. Hijo De La Luna

Tonto el que no entienda
Cuenta una leyenda
Que una hembra gitana
Conjuró a la luna
Hasta el amanecer
Llorando pedía
Al llegar el día
Desposar un calé

"Tendrás a tu hombre
Piel morena"
Desde el cielo
Habló la luna llena
"Pero a cambio quiero
El hijo primero
Que le engendres a él
Que quien su hijo inmola
Para no estar sola
Poco le iba a querer"

Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer
Que te haga mujer
Dime luna de plata
Qué pretendes hacer
Con un niño de piel
A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha
Hijo de la luna

De padre canela
Nació un niño
Blanco como el lomo
De un armiño
Con los ojos grises
En vez de aceituna
Niño albino de luna
"Maldita su estampa
Este hijo es de un payo
Y yo no me lo callo"

Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer
Que te haga mujer
Dime luna de plata
Qué pretendes hacer
Con un niño de piel
A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha
Hijo de la luna...

Gitano al creerse deshonrado
Se fue a su mujer
Cuchillo en mano
"¿De quien es el hijo?
Me has engañado fijo"
Y de muerte la hirió
Luego se hizo al monte
Con el niño en brazos
Y allí le abandono

Luna quieres ser madre
Y no encuentras querer
Que te haga mujer
Dime luna de plata
Qué pretendes hacer
Con un niño de piel
A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha
Hijo de la luna...

Y en las noches
Que haya luna llena
Será porque el niño
Esté de buenas
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para hacerle una cuna
Y si el niño llora
Menguará la luna
Para harcerle una cuna

10. Here With Me

I didn't hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
I don't want to move a thing
It might change my memory

Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want
But I can't hide

I won't go, I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me

I don't want to call my friends
They might wake me from this dream
And I don't wanna leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that's been

Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want
But I can't hide

I won't go, I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here
I won't go, I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me

Oh I am what I am
I'll do what I want
But I can't hide

I won't go, I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here
I won't go, I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me
I won't leave, I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me...

Ooh...


11. La Califfa

Tu non credere perche
Questa crudelta di padroni
Ha visto in me
Solo una cagna che
Mi mett' anch' io alla tua catena

Se attraverso la città
Questa ipocrita, tua città
Il corpo mio
Che passa tra di voi
E' un invettiva contro la viltà

Ooh...

Tu ritroverai con me
La più splendida proprietà
Un attimo di sole sopra noi
Alla ricerca di te


12. This Love

This love,
T this love is a strange love
A faded kind of day love
This love

This love,
I think I'm gonna fall again
And even when you held my hand
It didn't mean a thing
This love...

This love,
Never has to say love
Doesn't know it is love
This love

This love,
Doesn't have to say love
Doesn't need to be love
Doesn't mean a thing oh
This love

This love, oh
This strange love, strange love
This love
This love (this love), oh
This strange love, strange love
This love...

This love (this love), oh
This strange love, strange love
This love
This love (this love), oh
This strange love, strange love
This love

This love, oh
This strange love, strange love
This love


13. Solo Con Te

Gioia nel cuor troverò
Con te il ciel raggiungerò
Pace ci sarà

Gioia nel cuor troverò
Con te il ciel raggiungerò
Pace ci sarà

Gioia nel cuor troverò
Con te il ciel raggiungerò
Un mondo nuovo con te vedrò


14. Gloomy Sunday

Sunday is gloomy
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers
Will never awaken you
Not where the black coach
Of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought
Of ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you
Gloomy Sunday

Sunday is gloomy
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have decided
To end it all
Soon there'll be flowers and prayers
That are said I know
Let them not weep
Let them know
That I'm glad to go
Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my soul
I'll be blessing you
Gloomy Sunday

Dreaming
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep
In the deep of my heart dear
Darling I hope
That my dream never haunted you
My heart is telling you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday
Gloomy Sunday


15. La Luna

Scende la notte, tranquillità
Piano il buio respira
Solo la luna veglierà
Con argento ci coprirà
Dal grande cielo splenderà
Solo la luna veglierà

La luna della notte
Dolcemente ci proteggerà
La luna della notte
Dolcemente ci proteggerà

Scende la notte, e lei è la
Su tutto'l cielo lei regna
Con gentilezza lei guarderà
Illuminando la sera
Con gentilezza lei guarderà
Illuminando la sera

La luna della notte
Dolcemente ci proteggerà
La luna della notte
Dolcemente ci proteggerà

Luna non veglierà
Fuggirà
Luna scomparirà


--. Moon River
(hidden track on American release)

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style, some day
Oh dream maker, you heart-breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend
Moon river, and me!
