Grande Amore – Il Volo – Italian Lyrics

Chiudo gli occhi e penso a lei
Il profumo dolce della pelle sua
È una voce dentro che mi sta portando dove nasce il sole.
Sole sono le parole
Ma se vanno scritte tutto può cambiare
Senza più timore te lo voglio urlare questo grande amore

Amore, solo amore è quello che sento
Dimmi perché quando penso, penso solo a te
Dimmi perché quando vedo, vedo solo te
Dimmi perché quando credo, credo solo in te grande amore
Dimmi che mai
Che non mi lascerai mai.
Dimmi chi sei
Respiro dei giorni miei d’amore.
Dimmi che sai
Che solo me sceglierai
Ora lo sai
Tu sei il mio unico grande amore

Passeranno primavere,
Giorni freddi e stupidi da ricordare,
Maledette notti perse a non dormire altre a far l’amore

Amore, sei il mio amore
Per sempre, per me.
Dimmi perché quando penso, penso solo a te
Dimmi perché quando amo, amo solo te
Dimmi perché quando vivo, vivo solo in te grande amore
Dimmi che mai
Che non mi lascerai mai.
Dimmi chi sei
Respiro dei giorni miei d’amore.
Dimmi che sai
Che non mi sbaglierei mai
Dimmi che sei
Che sei il mio unico grande amore


Grande Amore – Il Volo – English Translation

I close my eyes and think of her
The sweet scent of her skin
It is a voice inside that is taking me to where the sun is born.
Words are alone
But if they are written, everything can change
Without fear I want to scream this great love to you

Love, only love is what I feel
Tell me why when I think, I only think of you
Tell me why when I see, I only see you
Tell me why when I believe, I only believe in you great love
Tell me that you’ll never
That you will never leave me.
Tell me who you are
Breath of my days of love.
Tell me you know
That you will only choose me
Now you know
You are my one great love

Springs will pass,
Cold and stupid days to remember,
Damned nights lost to not sleeping, others to making love

Love, you are my love
Forever, for me.
Tell me why when I think, I only think of you
Tell me why when I love, I only love you
Tell me why when I live, I only live inside of you great love
Tell me you will never
That you will never leave me.
Tell me who you are
Breath of my days of love.
Tell me you know
That I would never be wrong
Tell me that you are
That you are my one great love
