Luciano Pavarotti

Nessun Dorma


ITALIAN


Nessun dorma! Nessun dorma!

Tu pure, o, Principessa,

nella tua fredda stanza,

guardi le stelle

che tremano d'amore

e di speranza.


Ma il mio mistero e chiuso in me,

il nome mio nessun sapr No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dir quando la luce splender

Ed il mio bacio sciogliera il silenzio

che ti fa mia!


(Il nome suo nessun sapr..

e noi dovrem, ahim?morir!)


Dilegua, o notte!

Tramontate, stelle!

Tramontate, stelle!

All'alba vincerr vincerincerr


ENGLISH


No-one sleeps....no-one sleeps,

Even you, O Princess,

in your cold room,

Watch the stars

which tremble with love

and hope!


But my secret is locked within me,

no-one shall know my name!

No, no, I shall say it on your mouth

when the light breaks!


And my kiss will break the silence

that makes you mine!


(No-one shall know his name,

and we, alas, shall die!)


Vanish, o night!

Set, ye stars!

At dawn I shall win!

    General CommentWow I can't believe no one has commented on this song. I have no what it means but it is just so beautiful. Luciano Pavarotti has an amazing voice he is incredible. I love this song because it reminds me of when i was a child, because my dad would watch the 1994 concert that he recorded and it always kind of takes me back. That and it makes me feel kind of cultured you know listening to opera very fancy.

    General CommentNobody sleeps, nobody sleeps
    You too, oh Princess
    In your cold room
    Watch the stars
    Which tremble with love
    And (desire?) My mystery is closed away
    None will know my name, no, no
    I will say it on your mouth
    When the light shines
    And my kiss will melt the silence
    That makes you mine

    None shall know his name
    Bummer, we'll die.

    General CommentThe world has lost one of the most beautiful voices. This song gives me chills when ever I here him sing it. I'm so glad that we got to here him sing it at the Olympics in 2006, what an amazing performance.

    My OpinionPositivePounders.org loves this song and a greater appreciation of it is now gained upon hearing the more diverse interpretation sung by the great Aretha Franklin (for the ailing Pavarotti - seen on Youtube .
    youtube.com/…)

    The best is yet to come.

    Best,
