Lyrics

Sai, questa vita mi confonde
Coi suoi baci e le sue onde
Sbatte forte su di me
Vita che ogni giorno mi divori
Mi seduci mi abbandoni
Nelle stanze di un hotel
Tra le cose non fatte per poi non doversi pentire
Le promesse lasciate sfuggire soltanto a metà
Mentre pensi che questo non vivere sia già morire
Chiudi gli occhi lasciando un sospiro alla notte che va
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Questa vita dolorosa, seducente, miracolosa
Vita che mi spingi in mezzo al mare

Mi fai piangere e ballare come un pazzo insieme a te
Sì, avrei potuto andare altrove
Non dar fuoco a ogni emozione
Affezionarmi ad un cliché
Ma sei la vita che ora ho scelto
E di questo non mi pento
Anche quando si alza il vento
E mi perdo nel vortice di ogni tua folle passione
Tra i profumi dei fiori che posi qui dentro di me
Mi fai bere i tuoi baci affinché io poi possa arrivare
Dentro l’ultima notte d’estate ubriaco ad urlare
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Questa vita dolorosa, seducente, miracolosa
Vita che mi spingi in mezzo al mare

Mi fai piangere e ballare come un pazzo insieme a te
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Questa vita dolorosa, seducente, miracolosa
Vita che mi spingi in mezzo al mare

Mi fai piangere e ballare
Come un pazzo insieme a te
E non vorrei mai lasciarti finire
No, non vorrei mai lasciarti finire
Ah che vita meravigliosa

Ah che vita meravigliosa
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Ah che vita meravigliosa
Questa vita dolorosa, seducente, miracolosa
Vita che mi spingi in mezzo al mare

Mi fai piangere e ballare
Come un pazzo insieme a te

Lyrics (English)

You know, this life confuses me
With his kisses and his waves
It hits hard on me
Life that devours me every day
You seduce me you leave me
In the rooms of a hotel
Among the things not done and then not having to repent
The promises let slip only halfway
While you think that this not living is already dying
Close your eyes leaving a sigh to the night that goes
Ah what a wonderful life
This painful, seductive, miraculous life
Life that you push me into the middle of the sea

You make me cry and dance like crazy with you
Yes, I could have gone elsewhere
Don’t ignite every emotion
Affectionate to a cliché
But you are the life that I have now chosen
And I don’t regret that
Even when the wind picks up
And I get lost in the vortex of your every crazy passion
Among the scents of the flowers that you place here inside me
You make me drink your kisses so that I can arrive later
Inside the last summer night drunk screaming
Ah what a wonderful life
This painful, seductive, miraculous life
Life that you push me into the middle of the sea

You make me cry and dance like crazy with you
Ah what a wonderful life
This painful, seductive, miraculous life
Life that you push me into the middle of the sea

You make me cry and dance
Like a fool with you
And I would never let you finish
No, I would never let you finish
Ah what a wonderful life

Ah what a wonderful life
Ah what a wonderful life
Ah what a wonderful life
Ah what a wonderful life
This painful, seductive, miraculous life
Life that you push me into the middle of the sea

You make me cry and dance
Like a fool with you
