Original in Italian

Sono andati? Fingevo di dormire
Perché volli con te sola restare.
Ho tante cose che ti voglio dire,
O una sola, ma grande come il mare,
Come il mare profonda ed infinita…
Sei il mio amore e tutta la mia vita!

English translation

Are they gone? I was pretending to sleep
Because I wanted to be left alone with you.
I have so many things I want to tell you,
Or only one thing, but as huge as the ocean,
Deep and infinite as the sea.
You are my love and my whole life!
