Non Lasciarmi Cosi

Story Behind The Song

This song speaks to an age when women were left behind by husbands, boyfriends that vacated southern Italy to seek a better life overseas. Life in Southern Italy was the pits for the peasants, and many towns were left without a single man except the elderly. Many man simply remarried in their new country, abandoning the wives and children in the old country.

Non Lasciarmi Cosi - Don't Leave Me Like This!

Scrivi mi, non tenermi piu in pena!
Una frase, ?na righa bena, calmerano il mio dolor.
Sara forse l?addio che vuol? dare al core mio:
Scrivi mi; non lasciarmi cosi!
Quando tu sei partito, m?hai donnat? una rosa,
Oggi e triste e sfiorita, come questo mio cor.
L?ho bagnato di pianto, per ridarle la vita.
Ma il tuo amore soltanto l?acqua far rifiori!

Write me, don?t leave me in pain
Just a single phrase, a line will soothe my ache
Perhaps this is goodbye that you?re giving my heart
Write me, don?t leave me like this!

When you left, you gave me a rose
Today, it?s withered, like my heart
I bathe it with tears to renew it,
But only your love is the water of life
