"Oceano" as written by Mauro Malavasi, Leonardo De Bernadini and Andrea Sandri....
Piove sull'oceano, piove sull'oceano
Piove sulla mia identitá
Lampi sull'oceano, lampi sull'oceano
Squarci di luminositá

Forse qua in America i venti del pacifico
Scoprono le sue immensitá
Le mie mani stringono sogni lontanissimi
E il mio pensiero corre da te

Remo, tremo, sento
Profondi e oscuri abissi

É per l'amore che ti do
É per l'amore che non sai
Che mi fai naufragere e
É per l'amore che non ho
É per l'amore che vorrei
É per questo dolore
Questo amore che ho per te
Che mi fa superar queste vere tempeste

Onde sull'oceano, onde sull'oceano
Che dolcemente si placherá
Le mie mani stringono sogni lontanissimi
E il tuo respiro soffia su me

Remo, tremo, sento
Vento in fondo al cuore

É per l'amore che ho per te
Che mi fa superare mille tempeste
É per l'amore che ti do
É per l'amore che vorrei
Da questo mare
É per la vita che non see'é
Che mi fai naufragare in fondo al cuore
Tutto questo ti avrá te e a semberá
Tutto normale

    General CommentHere's the translation I ganked from some site:

    It rains on the Ocean
    It rains on the Ocean
    It rains on my identity

    Lights on the Ocean
    Lights on the Ocean
    Gaps of luminosity

    Maybe there in America
    the winds of the Pacific
    Uncover its immensity

    My hands hold tight
    some faraway dreams
    And my thoughts run to you

    I row, I shake, I feel
    Deep dark abysses

    It's for the love I give you
    and for the love you don't know
    that makes me wreck
    It's for the love I don't have
    and for the love I'd want
    It's for this pain
    It's for this love I have for you
    That makes me get over those real storms

    Waves on the Ocean
    Waves on the Ocean
    that will gently calm down

    My hands hold tight
    some faraway dreams
    and your breath blows on me

    I row, I shake, I feel
    A wind around my heart

    It's for the love I have for you
    That makes me get over thousands of storms
    It's for the love I give you
    and for the love I'd want
    from this sea
    It's for the life that isn't there
    that makes me wreck
    deep in my heart
    All this will have you
    and to you everything will seem normal


    The lyrics are kind of obscure, but the way I read it is that it's about a man who is leaving his home (Italy?) and going to America, and he is separated from his love. Nice imagery connecting the ocean and relationships... It also seems like perhaps the person he loves does not return the love he shows the way he wishes, which is something most of us can probably relate to.

    General CommentJosh Groban is the reason I began learning Italian. The lyrics are absolutely beautiful. Obviously it's about leaving someone..going to a faraway place..thinking of that person. I especially love how at the end it goes, "All this will have you and to you everything will seem normal." So maybe he loves that person and they don't love him back. "It's for the life that isnt' there..And for the love you don't know."

    Che mi fai naufragare
    In fondo al cuore
    Tutto questa ti avra sembrera
    Tutto normale...

    General Commenti must admit, i normally dont like songs i dont understand. but there is such a strong emotional pull with this song, it is entrancing. he sings like an angel.

    now i know the words, i love it more <3

    my interpretation; he's losing himself, leaving himself behind because he's leaving his love behind.

    General CommentOceano has the best beat, but I prefer his cover of Linkin Park's "My December" It is on the internet only 17 track disc.
