Love Is Stronger Than Pride

 

 

I won't pretend that I intend to stop living
I won't pretend I'm good at forgiving
But I can't hate you
Although I have tried

Io non dico che ho intenzione di smettere di vivere (1)
Io non pretendo di essere brava a perdonare
Ma non posso odiarti
Anche se ho cercato

I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you

In realtà io ti amo ancora
l'amore è più forte dell'orgoglio
In realtà io ti amo ancora

I won't pretend that I intend to stop living
I won't pretend I'm good at forgiving
But I can't hate you
Although I have tried

Io non dico che ho intenzione di smettere di vivere
Io non pretendo che sono brava a perdonare
Ma non posso odiarti
Anche se ho cercato

I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you

In realtà io ti amo ancora
l'amore è più forte dell'orgoglio
IIn realtà io ti amo ancora

Sitting here wasting my time
Would be like
Waiting for the sun to rise
It's all too clear things come and go
Sitting here waiting for you
Would be like waiting for winter
It's gonna be cold
There may even
Be snow

Star seduta qui sprecando il mio tempo
Sarebbe come
Aspettare che il sole sorga
È fin troppo chiaro, le cose vanno e vengono
Seduta qui per aspettare te
Sarebbe come stare in attesa per l'inverno
e arriverà il freddo
ci potrebbe persino
essere la neve

I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Love is stronger
I still really love you
Love is stronger than pride

In realtà io ti amo ancora
l'amore è più forte dell'orgoglio
In realtà io ti amo ancora
L'amore è più forte
In realtà io ti amo ancora
l'amore è più forte dell'orgoglio

 

 

Paradise

 

 

I'd wash the sand off the shore
Give you the world if it was mine
Blow you right to my door
Feels fine

Porterei via la sabbia dalla spiaggia
Darti il mondo se fosse mio
Portarti soffiando sino alla mia morta
Sentirmi bene

Feels like
You're mine
Feels right
So fine
I'm yours
You're mine
Like paradise

Sentirmi come
se tu fossi mio
Sentirmi a posto
così bene
Io sono tua
tu sei mia
è il Paradiso

I'd give you the world if it was mine
Feels fine

Ti darei il mondo se fosse mio
(Mi sentirei) bene

Feels like
You're mine
Feels right
So fine
I'm yours
You're mine
Like paradise

Sentirmi come
se tu fossi mio
Sentirmi a posto
così bene
Io sono tua
tu sei mia
è il Paradiso

I'd wash the sand off the shore
Give you the world if it was mine
Blow you right to my door
Feels fine

Porterei via la sabbia dalla spiaggia
Darti il mondo se fosse mio
Portarti soffiando sino alla mia morta
Sentirmi bene

Feels like
You're mine
Feels right
So fine
I'm yours
You're mine
Like paradise

Sentirmi come
se tu fossi mio
Sentirmi a posto
così bene
Io sono tua
tu sei mia
è il Paradiso

Oooh what a life
Oooh what a life
Oooh what a life
Oooh what a life

Oooh che vita (sarebbe)
...

I wanna share my life
Wanna share my life with you
Wanna share my life

Io voglio condividere la mia vita
Io voglio condividere la mia vita con te
Io voglio condividere la mia vita

I wanna share my life
Wanna share my life with you
Wanna share my life

Io voglio condividere la mia vita
Io voglio condividere la mia vita con te
Io voglio condividere la mia vita

Oooh what a life
Like paradise

Oooh che vita (sarebbe)
Un Paradiso

 

 

Nothing Can Come Between Us

 

 

I always hope that you remember
We'll never really learn the meaning of it all
What we have is strong and tender
So hold on
In the middle of the madness

 

When the time is running out and you're left alone
All I want is you to know that
It's strong still
Can't pull us apart

 

Nothing can come
Between us
Nothing can pull us apart
Can come
Between us

 

I always hope that you remember
What we have is strong and tender
In the middle of the madness
Hold on

 

So it truly is a good thing
And I always wanted you to know
There is always this
And this is everlasting
Hold on

 

It's about faith
It's about trust, yeah yeah
It's about faith
It's about trust

 

Nothing can come
Nothing can come
Nothing can come between us
Nothing can come
Nothing can come
Nothing can come between us

 

Can come
Can tear
Can pull
Us apart

 

Can come
Can tear
Can pull
Us apart

 

Haunt Me

 

Haunt me
In my dreams
If you please
Your breath is with me now and always
It's like a breeze

 

So should you ever doubt me
If it's help that you need
Never dare to doubt me

 

And if you want to sleep
I'll be quiet
Like an angel
As quiet as your soul could be
If you only knew
You had a friend like me

 

So should you ever doubt me
If it's help that you need
Never dare to doubt me

 
   

Haunt Me

   

Haunt me
In my dreams
If you please
Your breath is with me now and always
It's like a breeze

Entra (1)
Nei miei sogni
Se ti piace
Il tuo respiro è con me ora e sempre
E come un vento leggero

ìSo should you ever doubt me
If it's help that you need
Never dare to doubt me

Così se dovessi mai dubitare di me
Se si tratta di aiuto ciò di cui hai bisogno
Non dovrai mai dubitare di me

And if you want to sleep
I'll be quiet
Like an angel
As quiet as your soul could be
If you only knew
You had a friend like me

E se vuoi dormire
Resterò quieta
Come un angelo
Tranquilla come la tua anima potrebbe essere
Se solo sapesti
Che hai avuto un'amica come me

So should you ever doubt me
If it's help that you need
Never dare to doubt me

Così se dovessi mai dubitare di me
Se si tratta di aiuto ciò di cui hai bisogno
Non dovrai mai dubitare di me

 

 

Turn My Back on You

 

 

To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me
To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me

 

No (don't say) I'm not gonna turn my back on you
You know I'll never let you down (ah ha)
No way
I'll never let you down
I'll never let you down no way

 

Try to tell you that it's alright
Oooh I'm not playing
Can't you see what I'm saying
You are my religion

 

To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me
To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me

 

No (don't say) I'm not gonna turn my back on you
You know I'll never let you down (ah ha)
No way
I'll never let you down
I'll never let you down no way

 

Try to tell you that it's alright
Oooh I'm not playing
Can't you see what I'm saying
You are my religion

 

To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me
To turn my back on you
Now would I turn my back on me

 

 

 

Keep Looking

 

 

Some will tell you that you're wrong
You do it all the wrong way
Some will tell you that you're wrong
That you don't know the way

 

They enjoy cheapness
Don't show your weakness
Don't let them bother you no
They enjoy cheapness
Don't show your weakness
Oh no

 

It's no use sitting down
Don't walk round with a frown
Oh no keep looking
It's no use sitting around
With your head in your hands
Oh no keep looking

 

Say let my life alone

 

Some will tell you that you're wrong
You do it all the wrong way
Some will tell you that you're wrong
That you don't know the way

 

They enjoy cheapness
Don't show your weakness
Don't let them bother you no
They enjoy cheapness
Don't show your weakness
Oh no

 

It's no use sitting down
Don't walk round with a frown
Oh no keep looking
It's no use sitting around
With your head in your hands
Oh no keep looking

 

Keep looking
Keep looking

 

Don't lay awake at night
Thinking about your worries
Thinking about your problems
Don't lay awake at night
Thinking about your worries
Keep looking
Don't lay awake at night
Thinking about your worries
Thinking about your problems
Don't lay awake at night
Thinking about your problems
Keep looking

 

Keep looking

 

If you never let it show
They're never gonna know
Keep looking

 

If you never let it show
They're never gonna know
Keep looking

 

 

 

Clean Heart

 

 

Clean heart
Clean and sharp
Clean dream
Bad start

 

He loved his brother and his sister
Luke and Tony called him Mister
They made him feel much more
Like a man
He loved his daddy though he never told him
And how he loved his mother
He loved
He loved her like an Italian

 

Little Janet said you look so fine
So fine
Something in his smile
Made them feel like strangers
And then he straightened his belt
With a lover's touch
And he said I'm gonna bring home
The things that are out of your clutch

 

Seemed like the hottest night in summer
A heat that makes you feel like dying

 

Somewhere in the next block
There was a baby crying

 

Finger on the trigger for the years to come

 

And as the moon slid up over the restless streets
Sirens mocking and people stop to see
Their greedy eyes don't realise
He's someone's son
Finger on the trigger for the years to come

 

Finger on the trigger for the years to come

 

 

 

Give It Up

 

 

Tell me the secrets of your soul
Give it up and let go

 

Give it up
Give it all
Give it up
Give it all
Give it up
Give it all
Give it up
Give it all

 

I give you it all
I couldn't give you more if I tried
I give you my love
I give you everything I feel inside
I give you my life
It isn't a lie
I tell only the truth
I give you my love
I think I'd even die for you

 

Surrender your love
Surrender your love to me
Surrender your love
Surrender your love to me

 

Tell me the secrets of your soul
Give it up and let go

 

I give you my love
I couldn't give you more if I tried
I give you it all
I give you everything I feel inside
I give you my life
It isn't a lie
I tell only the truth
I give you my love
I think I'd even die for you

 

Surrender your love
Surrender your love to me
Surrender your love
Surrender your love to me

 

Give it up
...

 

 

 

I Never Thought I'd See the Day

   

You shed a shadow on my life
Shed a shadow on a love
Took the shelter out of my life
Took the shelter of a lie

 

I could see it in your restless eyes
The truth I was hiding
The truth you could not disguise

 

But I never thought I'd see the day
I knew I'd need a miracle to make you stay
I knew
I needed
A miracle
And I never thought I'd see the day

 

You put a shadow on a love
Took a shelter of a lie
Took the shelter out of my life

 

I wish you could shelter me
Shelter me now
I need a miracle
And I never thought I'd see the day

 

 

 
   

Note

 

 

 

Love Is Stronger Than Pride

(1)

Letteralmente: "io non pretendo, "io non sostengo".

Haunt Me

(2)

Il verbo inglese significa "infestare" (di fantasmi) o "introdursi, penetrare" (nei sogni). Qui lei invita la persona amata ad essere con lei sempre, anche introducendosi nei suoi sogni.
