Mi sei scoppiato dentro il cuore, di Mina You burst into my heart, by Mina
Era
Solamente ieri sera
Io parlavo con gli amici
Scherzavamo fra di noi
Translation
It was
Only last night
I was talking to friends
We were joking with each other
E tu, e tu, e tu
Tu sei arrivato
M’hai guardato
E allora tutto è cambiato per me
Translation
And you, and you, and you
You arrived
You looked at me
And then everything changed for me
Mi sei scoppiato dentro il cuore
All’improvviso, all’improvviso
Translation

Suddenly, suddenly
Non so perché
Non lo so perché
All’improvviso, all’improvviso
Translation

Sarà
Perché mi hai guardato
Come nessuno mi ha guardato mai
Mi sento viva
All’improvviso per te
Translation
Maybe
Because you looked at me
Like no one has ever looked at me
I feel alive
Suddenly for you
Ora, io non ho capito ancora
Non so come può finire
Quello che succederà
Translation
Now, I don’t understand yet
I don’t know how it can end
What will happen
Ma tu, ma tu, ma tu
Tu l’hai capito
L’hai capito
Ho visto che eri cambiato anche tu

But you, but you, but you
You understood it
