Love Is In Da Blog 25 – “All I Ask of You” & “Con Te Partirò”

 

So when I saw today’s prompt, I thought to myself – what do I know about opera? ABSOLUTLEY nothing, BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Here goes nothing. Wait! I know that I have seen at least one true opera and that was “The Phantom of the Opera a few years ago. I have chosen “All I Ask of You”.

As an added bonus I am adding a song that has not appeared in an opera but is beautiful none the less. “Con Te Partirò” or “Time to Say Goodbye” by Andrea Bocelli. The video included here is his performance with Sarah Brightman from 2007 at Teatro Del Silenzio, Italy.

 

Lyrics to “All I Ask of You”
No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears;
I’m here, nothing can harm you,
My words will warm and calm you.
Let me be your freedom,
Let daylight dry your tears;
I’m here, with you, beside you,
To guard you and to guide you.
Say you love me every waking moment,
Turn my head with talk of summertime.
Say you need me with you now and always;
Promise me that all you say is true,
That’s all I ask of you.
Let me be your shelter,
Let me be your light;
You’re safe, no one will find you,
Your fears are far behind you.
All I want is freedom,
A world with no more night;
And you, always beside me,
To hold me and to hide me.
Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime;
Let me lead you from your solitude.
Say you need me with you, here beside you,
Anywhere you go, let me go too,
Christine, that’s all I ask of you
Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime;
Say the word and I will follow you.
Share each day with me,
Each night, each morning.
Say you love me!
RAOUL
You know I do.
Anywhere you go, let me go to
Love me, that’s all I ask of you.
(they kiss)
I must go
They’ll wonder where I am
Wait for me Raoul!
Christine I love you!
Order your fine horses!
Be with them at the door!
And soon you’ll be beside me!
You’ll guard me and you’ll guide me
(they hurry off and the phantom emerges from behind the statue)
I gave you my music
Made your song take wing
And now how you’ve repaid me
Denied me and betrayed me
He was bound to love you when he heard you sing
Christine
Christine
Say you’ll share with me one love,
One lifetime say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me, each night, each morning
You will curse the day you did not do
All that the Phantom asked of you!
Go!
Songwriters: Charles Hart / Andrew Lloyd Webber / Richard Stilgoe
Lyrics to “Con Te Partirò” – “Time to Leave”
Cuando vivo solo sueño un horizonte falto de palabras
En la sombra y en tres luces todo es negro para mi mirada
Si tú no estás junto a mí, aquí
Tú en tu mundo 
separado del mío por un abismo
Oye llámame, yo volaré
A tu mundo lejano
Por ti volaré
Espera, que llegaré
Mi fin de trayecto eres tú
Para vivirlo los dos
Por ti volaré
Por cielos y mares hasta tu amor
Abriendo los ojos por fin
Contigo viviré
Cuando estas lejana sueño un horizonte falto de palabras
Y yo sé que siempre estas ahí, ahí
Una luna hecha para mí
Siempre iluminada para mí
Por mí, por mí, por mí
Por ti volaré
Espera que llegaré
Mi fin de trayecto eres tú
Contigo yo viviré
Por ti volaré
Por cielos y mares hasta tu amor
Abriendo los ojos por fin
Contigo yo viviré
Por ti volaré
Por cielos y mares hasta tu amor
Abriendo los ojos por fin
Contigo yo viviré
Por ti volaré
Volaré
Songwriters: Lucio Quarantotto / Francesco Sartori / Luis Gomez-Escolar
English Translation of lyrics to “Con Te Partirò” – “Time to Leave”

When I live alone, I dream of a horizon lacking in words
In the shadow and in three lights everything is black for my look
Yes you are not with me, here
You in your world
separate from mine for abyss
Hey call me, I’ll fly
To your distant world
By will fly you
Wait, I’ll get there
My end of journey is you
To live it both
By will fly you
By skies and seas until you love
Opening your eyes finally
With you I will live
When you are far away, I dream of a horizon lacking in words
And I know you’re always there, there
A moon made for me
Always illuminated for me
For me, for me, for me
By will fly you
Wait, I’ll arrive
My end of journey is you
With you I will live
By will fly you
By skies and seas until you love
Opening your eyes finally
With you I will live
By will fly you
By skies and seas until you love
Opening your eyes finally
With you I will live
By will fly you
To fly

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
