Sunday Song - Adriano Celentano – Confessa - Confession

 

Adriano Celentano was born in Milano, Italy on 6 January 1938 and is famous in Italy as a singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, film director and TV host. He has been active in his career since 1957.

Heavily influenced by his idol Elvis Presley, the 1950s rock revolution and by the American actor Jerry Lewis, he has retained his popularity in Italy for the last 40 years, selling millions of records and appearing in numerous TV shows and movies.

He has released forty albums, his most famous songs are 'La coppia piu bella del mondo' which sold over one million copies and 'Azzuro'

I am sharing here with you today  'Confessa' one of my favourites from this artist.

Italian Lyrics: Confessa


Su confessa amore mio
Io non sono piu il solo, lunico
Hai nascosto nel cuore tuo
Una storia irrinunciabile
Io non sono piu il tuo pensiero
Non sono piu il tuo amore vero
Sono il dolce con fondo amaro
Che non mangi piu
Ma perch tu sei unaltra donna
Ma perch tu non sei piu tu
Ma perch non lhai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai
Che ne hai fatto del nostro bene?
E diventato un freddo brivido
Le risate, le nostre cene
Scene ormai irrecuperabili
Io non sono piu il tuo pensiero
Non sono piu il tuo amore vero
Sono il dolce con fondo amaro
Che non mangi piu
Ma perche tu sei unaltra donna
Ma perche tu non sei piu tu
Ma perche tu, tu non lhai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai
Quando viene la sera
E il ricordo pian piano scompare
La tristezza nel cuore
Apre un vuoto piu grande del mare
Piu grande del mare
Ma perche non lhai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai
Che ne hai fatto del nostro amore?
E diventato un freddo brivido
Le risate, le nostre cene
Scene ormai irrecuperabili
Io non sono piu il tuo pensiero
Non sono piu il tuo amore vero
Sono il dolce con fondo amaro
Che non mangi piu
(ma perche non lhai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai)


English Lyrics : Confession

Come on, confess, my love.
I'm no longer the only one, the sole one.
You've hidden in your heart,
a story that cannot be renounced.
I am no longer your thought,
I am no longer your true love.
I am the sweet that is bitter inside,
which you no longer eat.
But why are you a different woman?
But why are you no longer you?
But why did you not say it before?
Who does not love will never be loved.
What did you do with the good thing we had?
It has become a cold shiver.
Our laughs, our dinners,
By now irrecoverable scenes.
I am no longer your thought,
I am no longer your true love. I am the sweet that is bitter inside,
which you no longer eat.
But why are you a different woman?
But why are you no longer you?
But why did you not say it before?
Who does not love will never be loved.
When the evening comes,
And the memory slowly disappears,
The sadness in the heart,
Opens an emptiness larger than the ocean,
Larger than the ocean.
But why did you not say it before?
Who does not love will never be loved.
What did you do with the good thing we had?
It has become a cold shiver.
Our laughs, our dinners,
By now irrecoverable scenes.
I am no longer your thought,
I am no longer your true love.
I am the sweet that is bitter inside,
which you no longer eat.
But why did you not say it before?
Who does not love will never be loved.

  3. I had not heard of Adriano but I loved this song, so many thanks for it.
    I have a soft spot for songs sung in Italian.I've always enjoyed Toto Cotugno and have some of his music on my iPhone.

  4. Lindy,

    Ciao, come stai?

    I like Adriano Celentano. I love the song "Azzurro"... such a happy tune! "Azzurro, il pomeriggio è troppo azzurro e lungo, per me..." Lovely song!

    You know, the other day I heard on TV that Celentano was actually born in Foggia, Puglia, not Milan. I always knew he was milanese, though! I'll have to check it out.

    Ciao dalla Campania!

  15. Celentano always has a place in a Russian woman's heart. He is the most beloved Italian entertainer among that demographic :)

  16. I don't watch Youtube but I enjoyed learning about him. I've never heard of him...if he has been around this long and still going, he must be amazing. I got tickled at his shirt unbuttoned, tank under it...lookin' YOUNG. :))
