[italian]

wake up, dont let them get you down
you've got a fine young mother who never doubted you
and you know it takes time to get better
but betters never forever

jeannie dont you cry
youre just a quarter of your life
jeannie dont you cry
you've got the whole world coming back
you've got the whole world coming back to you
and let go

yeah he never meant to hurt
you cant just build your heart up and give it all away like that
you say you want somethign so different
when you always look in the same damn place

jeannie dont you cry
youre just a quarter of your life
jeannie dont you cry
you've got the whole world coming back
you've got the whole world coming back to you


[italian]

jeannie dont you cry jeannie
yeah i know he never touched you right
jeannie dont you cry
youve got the whole world coming back
youve got the whole world coming back to you

wake up, dont let them get you down

    -Spanish-

    Wake up, don't let them get you down
    You've got a fine young mother who never doubted you
    And you know it takes time to get better
    But better's never forever

    Jeannie don't you cry
    You're just a quarter of your life
    Jeannie don't you cry
    You've got the whole world coming back
    You've got the whole world coming back to you
    And let go

    Yeah, he never meant to hurt
    You can't just build your heart up
    And give it all away like that
    you say you want something so different
    When you always look in the same damn place

    Jeannie don't you cry
    You're just a quarter of your life
    Jeannie don't you cry
    You've got the whole world coming back
    You've got the whole world coming back to you


    -Spanish Verse-

    Jeannie don't you cry, Jeannie
    Jeannie don't you cry
    Yeah I know, he never touched you right
    Jeannie dont you cry
    Youve got the whole world coming back
    Youve got the whole world coming back to you

    Wake up, don't let them get you down

    General CommentActually, in the CD booklet, it's credited as being Italian. So the only thing I see wrong is that it's not Spanish.

    The song is about one of his friends, name, obviously, Jeannie. They're like best friends... and it's supposed to be that sort of "hold your head up when things get bad" song...

    General Commenthere's the answer...it's ITALIAN!
    and she says "perchè mi lasci da sola? non vedi che [inapprehensible] perchè non mi telefoni? so che hai ricevuto i miei messaggi, io ti amo, ti amo, ero un'altra ragazza, perchè sei arrabbiato tutto quel tempo? ti ho visto ieri, ti manco troppo, ti amo"
    and that means
    "why you left me alone? can't you see that [..] why don't you call me? i know you get my messages, i love you, i love you, i was another girl, why are you angry along? i saw you yesterday, you miss me so much (i think she would say "i miss you so much" ..her italian is not so good, lol), i love you"

    General Commenti almost forget..i don't think this song's about a friendship.. she says "ti amo" that means "i love you" and not just in a friendly way..

    General CommentI still think it's about a friend... just because in the lyrics he's singing about a guy that "never touched you right." I think the Italian is talking about that guy... the bad one, not Will himself.
