because…

January 17, 2008

because it is time for something…light now. and because i have to smile every time i see this video – the pairing of the two is just genius. and because both definitly know how to move their butts (eros is way underrated concerning his hip-movements). and because eros never looked so good (it’s the hair). and because i told n that the next post is for him. and because if you’ve read the preceeding post and now read the lyrics to their song, taking into account the persisting rumours concerning these two artists…wow. yeah, it is all context and subtext.

i got the lyrics off the net somewhere and made a fast & dirty translation – so accuracy might be not a hundred percent. so here the lyris to non siamo soli by eros ramazotti, featuring ricky martin:

Eros Ramazzotti – Non Siamo Soli (we are not alone)
(Feat. Ricky Martin)

Eros: E’ la voglia di cambiare la realtà,
Che mi fa sentire ancora vivo
E cercherò tutti quelli come me
Che hanno ancora un sogno in più…un sogno in più
(it is the will/desire to change reality that makes me feel still alive, and i will search for all these like me that still have a dream (more))

Ricky: Dentro un libro che nessuno ha scritto mai,
Leggo le istruzione della vita,
Anche se so che poi non le seguirò,
Farò ciò che sento…
(in a book nobody ever wrote, i’m reading the instruction of/for life, even if i know i can not follow them, i will make that i feel)

Rit.
Eros: Oltre le distanze, noi non siamo soli
Figli della stessa umanità
Anime viaggianti in cerca di ideali,
Il coraggio non ci mancherà
(beyond the distances, we are not alone, children of the same people/of humankind, travelling souls in search for ideals, we will not lack courage)

Supera I confini di qualunque ideologia, l’emozione che ci unisce in una grande idea
Un altro mondo possibile c’è
E lo cerco anch’io e lo voglio anch’io come te…
(i’ll exceed the confines of any ideology, the emotion that unites us in a great idea, another world is possible, and also i will search for it and also i want it like you)

Ricky: Nelle pagine lasciate in bianco noi,
Diamo spazio a tutti I nostri sogni
(on the pages left white, we give space to all of our dreams)

Eros: nessuno mai il futuro ruberà,
Dalle nostre mani…
(nobody ever will steal the future from our hands)

Rit.
Eros & Ricky: Oltre le distanze, noi non siamo soli
Senza più certezze e verità
Anime confuse, cuori prigionieri
Con la stessa idea di libertà…libertà
(beyond the distances we are not alone, without certainties and truth, confused souls, imprisoned hearts, with the same idea of freedom…freedom)

Eros & Ricky: Oltre le distanze, non siamo soli
L’incertezza non ci fermerà
(beyond the distances, we are not alone, the insecurity will not stop us)

Eros: Supera I confini, non conosce geografia l’emozione che ci unisce in una grande idea
(i’ll exceed the limitations, the emotion that unites us in a great idea does not know geography)

Ricky: Oltre le distanze noi non siamo soli, sempre in cerca della verità
(beyond the distances we are not alone, aleays in search of the truth)

Eros: Anime viaggianti, cuori prigionieri, con la stessa idea di libertà
(travelling souls, imprisoned hearts, with the same idea of liberty)

Un altro mondo possibile c’è e lo sto cercando insieme a te
(another world is possible and i search for it with you)

Eros: Anch’io con te
(also me with you)

Ricky: Insieme a me
(together with me)

Eros: E tu con me…
(and you with me)

see what i mean? looks like they are looking for their paradise – and we can assume it is not one you can buy… i wish them courage.

in the meantime enjoy their video to the song:

UPDATE II: UNFORTUNATELY YOU WILL HAVE TO GO DIRECTLY TO YOUTUBE TO VIEW IT. ALL VERSIONS AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE HAVE EMBEDDING DISABLED. ONE WONDERS (especially since it only seems to concern this particular video. hmmm…)

(update: interesting to note that for the official video (posted by “eros ramazotti” they disabled embedding – because of my post? well, luckily somebody else loaded it up to youtube, too…)

UPDATE, AGAIN:

reader participation! an alternative, better translation. thank you very much, bartolo!

We are not alone
The desire to change reality
makes me feel still alive,
and I will search for all these like me
that still have a dream more… a dream more
In a book nobody ever wrote,
I’m reading the instructions of life,
even if I know that then I won’t follow them,
I will do what I feel
Beyond the distances, we are not alone,
Sons of the same humankind,
Travelling souls in search for ideals,
We won’t lack courage
Exceed the confines of any ideology,
The emotion that unites us in a great idea, Another world is possible,
And I am looking for it too, and I want it like you too
On the pages left white,
We give space to all of our dreams
Nobody ever will steal the future
From our hands
Beyond the distances we are not alone,
Without certainties and truth,
Confused souls, imprisoned hearts,
With the same idea of freedom…freedom
Beyond the distances, we are not alone,
The insecurity will not stop us
Exceeds the limitations, the emotion that unites us in a great idea does not know geography
Beyond the distances we are not alone, always in search of the truth
travelling souls, imprisoned hearts,
with the same idea of liberty
Another world is possible and I am looking for it with you
Also me with you
Together with me
And you with me
