Quando sei qui con me, questa stanza non ha più pareti, ma alberi, alberi infiniti.
Quando sei qui vicino a me, questo soffitto viola non, non esiste più.
Io vedo il cielo sopra noi, che restiamo qui, abbandonati, come se non ci fosse più, niente, più niente al mondo.
Suona un'armonica, mi sembra un organo che vibra per te e per me, su nell'immensità del cielo, per te e per me, nel ciel.

When you are here with me, there are no longer walls in this room, but trees instead - infinite trees.
When you’re here next to me, this lilac ceiling no longer exists - I can see the sky above us, as we lay here in complete abandonment, as if nothing else existed, nothing else in the world anymore.
I can hear a harmonica, and it seems like an orchestra playing just for you and me, up there in the vast expanse of sky – for you and for me, in heaven.

Music & Lyrics: Gino Paoli, 1959

English translation: O. Sarsanedas & C.E. Terry, 2010
