Lyrics

Questa Vita Bella
(This Beautiful Life)

Quando ero giovane ho sentito storie tristi (When I was young I heard sad stories)
Ma erano assenti ed impensabilmente lontani (But they were far away and unthinkable)
Ora sembra che una nube scura sia discesa (Now it seems a dark cloud has descended)
E l'impensabile e diventata realta (And the unthinkable has become real)
Ma non possono impaurirmi (But they cannot make me afraid)
Non possono toglier via (They cannot take away)
Questa vita bella (This beautiful life)

Qualunque cosa, devo credere (No matter what, I must believe) Vi e una forza piu grande che ci guarda (There is a greater power watching us) E benche alcuni le facciano danno (And though some would do us harm)
La verita ancora viene da sopra (Truth still comes from above)
No, non possono impaurirmi (No, they cannot make me afraid)
Non possono toglier via (They cannot take away)
Questa vita bella (This beautiful life)
Non possono togliere il sole (They cannot take away the sun)
O la pioggia cosi come cade (Or the rain as it falls)
Non possono rubare la luna (They cannot steal the moon)
O far tacere il mare (Or silence the sea)
Non possono toccare (They cannot touch)
Questa vita bella (This beautiful life)
Non possono togliere la musica (They cannot take away music)
O tacere un sorriso (Or silence laughing)
Non ruberanno la nostra gioia (They shall not steal our joy)
O rompe ranno i nostri cuori (Or break our hearts)
Non possono toglier via (They cannot take away)
Questa vita bella (This beautiful life)
