This song is a combination of the melodic classical tradition with a popular vocal overlay. The instrumental background has a world music flavour. There is a duet encompassing classical, pop and world music traditions on a musical level. On the emotional level it is the struggle between our longings for the serene beauty of life amidst its harsher realities.realities.

Lyrics

La Vita

Music and lyrics in both Italian and English: B. Glenn-Copeland
Ã,© Granny Mabel Leaf's Music Publ. SOCAN


Per amore
ascolta il cantore.
Lui che canta
che la vita e bella
Pace, pace.
la vita e dolce.
Grazie, grazie.
Dal cuore, grazie.

(Translation:
For the sake of love,
listen to the singer
who sings
that life is beautiful.
Be at peace
Life is sweet
From the depths of my heart
I thank you.)

And I work and I work all day and night
I wonder if I'm ever gonna get it right
I push and I push to get ahead
I know I gotta make my daily bread

And I know I don't have time to lose
I wonder if I really have time to choose
I barely have time to shed a tear
I hardly have time to shake the fear

And the body says "Remember you gotta breathe"
The body says "Take the time to grieve"
The mind says "Let the silence flow"
The mind says "Allow yourself to grow"

The spirit says "Cast your eyes above"
The spirit says " Fill your heart with love"
The heart says "Seek the light within"
The heart says "Let the dance begin"

And my mother says to me, "Enjoy your life!"
"Enjoy your life, darling!"
