Con Te Partirò – Andrea Bocelli – Lyrics & English Translation

The famous Italian song Con te partirò was first performed by Andrea Bocelli at the Sanremo Music Festival in 1995. Written by Francesco Sartori and Lucio Quarantotto, it has become one of the best-selling singles in history.

Achieving even greater success worldwide was the second version of the song with the new title Time to Say Goodbye, performed by Bocelli and soprano Sarah Brightman. Although it is sung partly in English, the English language lyrics are not a direct translation of the original Italian lyrics.

Con Te Partirò – Andrea Bocelli – Italian Lyrics

Quando sono solo
Sogno all’orizzonte
E mancan le parole
Si lo so che non c’è luce
In una stanza quando manca il sole
Se non ci sei tu con me, con me
Su le finestre
Mostra a tutti il mio cuore
Che hai acceso
Chiudi dentro me
La luce che
Hai incontrato per strada


Con te partirò
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso si li vivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
Con te io li vivrò


Quando sei lontana
Sogno all’orizzonte
E mancan le parole
E io sì lo so
Che sei con me, con me
Tu mia luna tu sei qui con me
Mio sole tu sei qui con me
Con me, con me, con me


Con te partirò
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso si li vivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
Con te io li rivivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
Con te io li rivivrò
Con te partirò
Io con te


Con Te Partirò – Andrea Bocelli – English Translation

When I am alone
I dream on the horizon

And words fail
Yes, I know there is no light
In a room when the sun is absent
If you are not there with me, with me
Open the windows

Show everyone my heart
Which you have set alight
Enclose within me
The light that
You met on the street

I will leave with you
Countries that I’ve never
Seen or shared with you
Yes, now I will experience them
I will leave with you
On ships over seas
That I know
No no, they no longer exist
With you I shall experience them

When you are far away
I dream on the horizon
And words fail
And I do know
That you are with me, with me
You, my moon, you are here with me
My sun, you are here with me
With me, with me, with me

I will leave with you
Countries that I’ve never
Seen or shared with you
Yes, now I will experience them
I will leave with you
On ships over seas
That I know
No no, they no longer exist
With you I shall experience them
again
I will leave with you
On ships over seas
That I know
No no, they no longer exist
With you I shall experience them
again
I will leave with you
Me with you
