Here where the sea shines
And the wind howls
On the old terrace
Beside the gulf of Sorrento
A man embraces a girl
After the tears
Then clears his throat
And continues the song

I love you very much
Very very much you know
It is a chain by now
That heats the blood inside the veins you know

He saw the lights out on the sea
Thought of the nights there in America
But they were only the fishermen’s lamps
And the white wash astern
He felt the pain in the music
And stood up from the piano

But when he saw the moon
Emerging from a cloud
Death also seemed sweeter to him
He looked the girl in the eyes
Those eyes as green as the sea
Then suddenly a tear fell
And he believed he was drowning

I love you very much
Very very much you know
It is a chain by now
That heats the blood inside the veins you know

The power of opera
Where every drama is a hoax
With a little make-up and with mime
You can become someone else
But two eyes that look at you
So close and real
Make you forget the words
Confuse your thoughts
So everything becomes small
Also the nights there in America
You turn and see your life
Through the white wash astern
But yes it is life that ends
And he did not think much about it
On the contrary he already felt happy
And continued his song

I love you very much
Very very much you know
It is a chain by now
That heats the blood inside the veins you know

I love you very much
very very much you know
it is a chain by now
That heats the blood inside the veins you know
