My Faith

Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore
Non feci mai male ad anima viva
Con ma furtiva
Quante miserie conobbi autai
[I lived for my art, I lived for love,
I never did harm to a living soul!
With a secret hand
I relieved as many misfortunes as I knew of]

I lived with all my heart
for better or for worse
I did whatever’s right
And never thought that’d be a curse

I learned from my mistakes
Faced bad times with a smile
The music was my faith
And I believed that as the years went by

I lived with all my heart
I lived for love and art
The music was my faith
Did I deserve all this please tell me Grace?

I spread my wings so I can fly close to you
I wrote my songs, so I can sing, cause simple words won’t do
Fall on my knees reach for the stars, sun and moon
Believe me I’m telling the truth
My faith is you, my faith is you, my faith is you

The music was my faith
The music was my guide
I sacrificed myself to the melody and rhyme

Like a willow in the wind
I bowed to every tune
My brunches- strings of melody
My rhythm – the heart of bloom

Nell’ora del dolor
perche, perche, Signor,
Perche me ne rimuneri cosi?
[In the hour of grief
why, why, o Lord
why do you reward me so?]

I spread my wings so I can fly close to you
I wrote my songs, so I can sing, cause simple words won’t do
Fall on my knees reach for the stars, sun and moon
Believe me I’m telling the truth
My faith is you, my faith is you, my faith is you

NARIA  

The Witch

Lo lo lei (repeat)

I could kill you or I could heal you,
I could make you or I could break you,
I could seize you or I’ll release you,
Enchant you with just one kiss!
Muah!

I will tease you or I will please you
I will stoke you and I’ll provoke you
To do whatever I want to
Torment you or give you bliss!

Cuz I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach
I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach

Witcha, witcha, witcha, witcha, witcha,
witcha, I’m a witcha witcha
Witcha, witcha, witcha, witcha, witcha,
witcha, I’m a witcha witcha

I could teach you and I’ll enrich you
Or I could doom you and I will gloom you
I can lose you, or I can choose you
Or trap your soul in abyss!

I will tease you or I will please you
I will stoke you or I’ll provoke you
To do whatever I want to
Torment you or give you bliss!

Cuz I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach
I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach

Lo lo lei (repeat)

Kill you, heal you
Make you, break you,
Cease you, release you
Give you a kiss!
Tease you please you, stoke you, provoke you
Do whatever, whatever I please!
Do whatever, whatever I please!

Cuz I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach
I’m a witch, I’m a witch
I will fly you high out of reach
I won’t preach but I can teach
Cast a love spell no one can breach

Ah, I’ll take you high
Ah, baby you’re mine
Ah, baby you’re mine

2. The Witch
NARIA  

Canadian Girl

On a Saturday night at Dundas Square
There is music and excitement buzzing through the air
In a hustle and bustle and the flashing lights
My head is spinning round
But I feel alright

Cause in these faces,
I see traces
Saying what it means to be a

Canadian girl, Canadian girl
Whoever she is
She’s part of this world
She is strong, she belongs, she’s free

Canadian girl, Canadian girl
Wherever she’s from/wherever she goes
She’s part of this world
To be strong, to belong, to be free

It’s carnaval, a banquet, it’s a festival crowd
It’s a jumpin’ jazz club, it’s an opera house
It’s a love affair and I don’t have to choose
Between tradition and ambition,
Between old and new

Cause in these places,
There are traces
Saying what it means to be a

Canadian girl, Canadian girl
Whoever she is
She’s part of this world
She is strong, she belongs, she’s free

Canadian girl, Canadian girl
Wherever she’s from/wherever she goes
She’s part of this world
To be strong, to belong, to be free

N-A-R-I-A (repeat)

3. Canadian Girl
NARIA  

Cry Away

O Menagerie
Little garden so crystalline
Are you on your way?
Little bird with a new day?
Thought I heard your soft blue wings
But was just the cold, cold winds
Thought I saw the glow of dawn
But the night was still so long, so long

Cry away, cry away, cry away

Piangero, piangero la sorte mia
Si crudele e tanto ria
Finche vita in petto avro

Piangero, piangero, piangero

O Delphian night
Let your stars cast a brilliant light.
Darkness cannot last
And this winter will surely pass
And the dawn will it’s glow will cast
And melt your hear of glass
Spring birds will sing at last
Sing at last

Sing away, sing away, sing away

Cry, cry my fate

It is so cruel

As long as life is in breast

4. Cry Away
NARIA  

Dear Juliet

The best thing that ever happened
Was when you wrapped me in your arms
Became so clear what really mattered
That you and I will never be apart

But today my fate is laughing
It proves me wrong cause you’re departing
It breaks me down to pieces
How will I go on (will I go on)

I will find you I’ll never stop trying
Cause I’m in love with you no point denying
I will leave all behind I won’t fight it
I will leave all behind I won’t fight it
I’ll get you from heaven or hell
(To be with you one more day, just one more day)

Vorre che non accadesse
Mai questo dover scegliere
Tra te e qualcun’ altro
Che amo c’e una via per me?
Tutto cio che posso fare
E amarti ancora di piu amore
Che posso fare che amarti di piu

Che fiero fiero momento
Che barbara barbara sorte
Passar dalla morte a tanto
Tanto Tanto dolor
Tanto dolor
[I wish it would never come to this
When I have to choose between you and everyone else I love
Is there a way for me?
All I can do is love you even more my love..
My love for you is stronger than any other feeling in my heart
My love is so strong that I seize to exist]

I will find you I’ll never stop trying
Cause I’m in love with you no point denying
I will leave all behind I won’t fight it
To be with you one more day, just one more day

Just one more day
Just one more day
Just one more day

5. Dear Juliet
NARIA  

My Mother Taught Me

Když mne stará matka zpívat, zpívat učívala,
podivno, že často, často slzívala.

When my dear mother taught me how to talk and how to sing
When my dear mother taught me how to take and how to give
When my dear mother taught me how to play an instrument
When my dear mother taught me how to live and be content

Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play my tambourine
HEY!
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play, play, play my tambourine

When my dear mother taught me how to shop and how to dance
When my dear mother taught me how to give a second chance
When my dear mother taught me how to play a fair game
When my dear mother taught me how to never, never, never, never feel the shame

Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play my tambourine
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play, play, play my tambourine

Když mne stará matka zpívat, zpívat učívala,
podivno, že často, často slzívala.

Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play my tambourine
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na sing my violin
Nai–na, na na ni , Nai–na play, play, play

When my dear mother taught me
When my dear mother taught me
When my dear mother taught me
When my dear mother taught me
When my dear mother taught me
When my dear mother taught me

1+1+1

Ah, perche, perche la mia costanza
Vuoi scemar con molli affetti
Piu lusinghe, ah, piu speranza
Presso a morte un cor non ha
[Ah! Why do you want to weaken
my steadfastness with sweet affection?
A heart near death has no illusions, no more hope!]

You, are candle light under moon,
Tonight could not come soon enough,
He’s waiting under the moon for love,
And you wanna see she’s game

She’s ready to believe again,
She’s gonna wager the ring and the friend,
She can’t see the forest for the trees,
And you best believe she’s ready to leave but…

She’s her friend but he’s getting closer,
He’ll never tell and none will be the wiser.
She paints on black and paints on love.
When the rush is up,
It’s never enough
It’s never enough
It’s never enough

Something’s wrong and he just don’t get it,
Something’s wrong and she won’t regret it,
It’s one plus one plus one…
Something’s up and she’s out to get it,
Something’s down and he’s left to sweat it,
It’s one plus one plus one…

Ah, perche, la mia costanza
Vuoi scemar con molli affetti
Piu lusinghe, ah, piu speranza
Presso a morte, presso a morte un cor non ha
Un cor non ha
[Ah! Why do you want to weaken
my steadfastness with sweet affection?
A heart near death has no illusions, no more hope!]

Don’t get in that car girl,
You don’t know what you’re losing,
Don’t get in that car boy,
You don’t know what your doing.
You wanna play tough and you wanna save face,
You wanna reach out and
You need some grace
You need some grace
But it’s too damn late…

Something’s wrong he can’t forget it,
Something’s wrong and she won’t regret it,
It’s one plus one plus one…
Something’s up and she’s out to get it,
Something’s down and you’re left to sweat it,
It’s one plus one plus one…
It’s one plus one plus one…

Ah, perche, la mia costanza
Vuoi scemar con molli affetti
Piu lusinghe, ah, piu speranza
Presso a morte, presso a morte un cor non ha
[Ah! Why do you want to weaken
my steadfastness with sweet affection?
A heart near death has no illusions, no more hope!]

Ah, perche, la mia costanza
[Ah! Why do you want to weaken…]
