Parlami amor mio

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the English

Parlami amor mio, 
dimmi a parole quello che cantasti.
La notte è buia... 
Le stelle si smarriscono ne le nubi...
Il vento soffia tra le fronde.
Scioglierò i miei capelli...
Il mio mantello azzurro mi circonderà come la notte...
Stringerò la tua testa sul mio seno
E ne la dolce solitudine 
sospirerò sul tuo cuore!
Socchiuderò i miei occhi e ascolterò.
Quando le tue parole cesseranno
Staremo fermi e in silenzio...
La notte impallidirà.
Spunterà l'aurora...
Ci guarderemo negli occhi
E andremo pel nostro diverso cammin
Parlami amor mio...
Dimmi a parole quelo che cantasti...
