Canto della Terra

Canto della Terra by Andrea Bocelli

This Italian song translates roughly to "Song of the Earth" (don't be afraid to correct me).

Update (5th Aug 09): I'm not sure why, but feedjit tells me that this is the most visited page on my blog. Maybe people think that this is an Italian blog? Maybe not? Or maybe you guys can tell me what's interesting about this page?

For those of you who know my interest in music and vocals, well, this song was one of the first where I listened to how a Tenor B sounds like (just a semitone lower than the tenor "high C").

I've actually got another version too, which is a duet by Rinaldo Viana and Liriel, found here (Highest note for soprano is an E, for tenor a B).

And for those of you who want to sing along:

Si lo so
Amore che io e te
Forse stiamo insieme
Solo qualche instante
Zitti stiamo
Ad ascoltare
Il cielo
Alla finestra
Questo mondo che
Si sveglia e la notte e
Gia cosi lontana
Gia lontana

Guarda questa terra che
Che gira insieme a noi
Anche quando e buio
Guarda questa terra che
Che gira anche per noi
A darci un po di
Sole, sole, sole

My love che sei lamore mio
Sento la tua voce
E ascolto il mare
Sembra davvero il tuo respiro
Lamore che mi dai
Questo amore che
Sta li nascosto
In mezzo alle sue onde
A tutte le sue onde
Come una barca che

Guarda questa terra che
Che gira insieme a noi
A darce un po di sole
Mighty sun
Mighty sun

In English:
Yes I know
My love, that you and i
Are together briefly
For just a few moments
In silence
As we look out of our windows
And listen
To the sky
And to a world
Thats awakening
And the night is already far away
Already, far away

Look at this world
Spinning with us
Even in the dark
Look at this world
Spinning for us
Giving us hope and some
Sun, sun sun

My love, you are you my love
I hear your voice,
And I listen to the sea.
It sounds just like your breathing
And all the love you want to give me
This love
That is there, hidden
Hidden among the waves
All the waves in the world
Just like a boat that....

Look at this world
Spinning with us
Giving us some sun,
Mighty sun
Mighty sun


P/S: All lyrics are copied and pasted from the Web. I apologize for any errors. Especially if you try to audition/perform this song. And I think the English version is merely a literal translation. So don't rely too much on it.

Well I don't know about other people, but I was looking for the highest notes sung in the song and one of the first google links brought me here. Thanks btw
