"Figlio Perduto" as written by and Ludwig/ferrau Van Beethoven....
Muri die vento
Notte è scesa
Padre e figlio sono insiem

Con un cavallo
Vanno avanti
In questa grande oscurità

Ma ad un tratto
Il bimbo trema
Dalla paura
Freddo si fa

Padre oh padre
Tu non hai visto
Re degli elfi
Eccolo la

Figlio perduto,
Vuoi far un gioco?
Gioia ti porto
Vieni con me

Padre oh padre
Hai già sentito
Cosa mi dice
E che vuol' far'?

Figlio perduto
Se tu non vieni
Io userò la forza che ho

Padre oh padre
Re degli elfi
Mi sta toccando
Male mi fa

E il bambino,
Con occhi chiusi
Lui non si muove
Perso è già

Figlio
Figlio perduto
Se tu non vieni
Io userò la mia forza

Padre oh padre
Re degli elfi
Mi sta toccando
Male mi fa

E il bambino,
Con occhi chiusi
Lui non si muove
Perso è già

Perso è già

    General CommentI've always loved this song. I wrote the words in English and a friend of mine and her ex made up their own thing about what it meant. They really messed it up! In English it says:

    Walls of wind
    Night has fallen
    Father and son are together
    With a horse they advance
    through this intense darkness
    But suddenly the boy trembles with fear
    It gets cold
    Father, oh father
    haven't you seen
    the king of the elves?
    There he is
    Lost son
    do you want to play?
    I bring you joy
    Come with me
    Father, oh father
    have you heard what he said and what he will do?
    Lost son
    if you don't come with me
    I'll use my power
    Father, oh father
    It's the king of the elves
    He is touching me
    He hurts me
    And the boy
    Eyes closed
    He doesn't move
    He's already lost
    Lost
    Lost son
    If you don't come with me I'll use my power
    Father, oh father
    It's the king of the elves
    He is touching me
    He hurts me
    And the boy
    Eyes closed
    He doesn't move
    He's already lost
    ....he's already lost

    It IS kind of creepy, but it's sill really cool.

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually the Italian translation of "Der Erlkönig" ('The Erlking', or ), a really famous German poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful - it's off Beethoven's 7th Symphony and makes it sound way better. Now if only I could understand Italian!
