"Time To Say Goodbye" as written by and Francesco/quarantotto Sartori....
Quando sono sola
Sogno all'orizzonte
E mancan le parole
Sì 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 accesso
Chiudi dentro me
La luce che
Hai incontrato per strada

Time to say goodbye
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso sì li vivrò
Con te partirò
Su navi per mari
Che, io lo so
No, no, non esistono più
It's time to say goodbye

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

Time to say goodbye
Paesi che non ho mai
Veduto e vissuto con te
Adesso sì 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

    Song MeaningThis song is about two lovers embarking on a journey together as one. The literal interpretation of the song title in Italian is "I will leave with you". The people they are saying goodbye to is not each other but to their loved ones as they begin a life together in a new world and become one flesh. It's a great song for a newlywed couple!

    General CommentLyrics in English:

    When I’m alone
    I dream on the horizon
    And words fail;
    Yes, I know there is no light
    In a room
    Where the sun is not there
    If you are not with me.
    At the windows
    Show everyone my heart
    Which you set alight;
    Enclose within me
    The light you
    Encountered on the street.

    Time to say goodbye,
    To countries I never
    Saw and shared with you,
    Now, yes, I shall experience them,
    I’ll go with you
    On ships across seas
    Which, I know,
    No, no, exist no longer;
    With you I shall experience them.

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

    Time to say goodbye,
    To countries I never
    Saw and shared with you,
    Now, yes, I shall experience them,
    I’ll go with you
    On ships across seas
    Which, I know,
    No, no, exist no longer;
    With you I shall re-experience them.
    I’ll go with you
    On ships across seas
    Which, I know,
    No, no, exist no longer;
    With you I shall re-experience them.
    I’ll go with you,
    I with you.

    General CommentSometimes the beauty of the music transcends the words of the song. Still, both the music and the lyrics (English or Italian) are beautiful.

    General CommentMy friend told me this song was written by a blind man or something, so I'm thinking that changes a lot but I've also seen other translated versions of this song.

    General CommentCon Te Partiro` doesn't mean, "Time to say goodbye," but "I'll leave with you."

    General CommentI think this song is about dying and losing a loved one. After death, you are no longer bound by space and time, and you can join those who you've loved and gone before you.
