Sing along to 'Specchio (Mirror On The Wall)': Lyrics

Italian

Mente, lo specchio mente, sporca, rotta, bugiarda lente

Fende, lo specchio offende davanti agli occhi tira le tende

Scende, lo specchio scende dietro i pensieri, sotto la pelle

Ride, lo specchio ride dei miei affetti, dei miei insuccessi

Ride, lo specchio ride dei miei difetti dei miei complessi

Spire, tra le sue spire cadono a fondo le mie incertezze

Io sono qui senza filtri e senza inganni

Sono così oltre il velo dei miei sguardi

C’è un universo dentro di me

Io sono qui, qui davanti a te

Specchio, specchio delle mie brame amami, abbracciami, accettami

Specchio, specchio delle mie fiabe amami, stimami, rispettami

Specchio, specchio delle mie tare dimmi la verità Io sono qui senza filtri e senza inganni

Sono così oltre il muro dei miei sguardi

Cerca il riflesso dentro di me

And you will never lie me again

Io sono qui, qui davanti a te

Via le maschere dagli occhi, via dall’anima

Il mio cuore, la mia essenza custodirà

I just want to be the real me, everyday and you will be and you will be a memory

Io sono qui senza trucco e senza inganni

Sono così oltre il velo dei miei sguardi

Guarda il riflesso dentro di me

And you will never lie to me again

Io sono qui, qui davanti a te

English translation

It lies, the mirror lies, dirty, broken, deceitful lens

It cuts trough, the mirror offends, it draws curtains in front of the eyes

It descends, the mirror descends behind thoughts, under the skin

It laughs, the mirror laughs at my affections, at my setbacks

It laughs, the mirror laughs at my flaws, at my complexes

Coils, among its coils my uncertainties fall deeply

I am here without any filter and without any deception

I am like this beyond the veil of my glances,

There is a universe in me

I am here, here in front of you

Mirror, mirror of my desires love me, hug me, accept me

Mirror, mirror of my fairy tale, appraise me, respect me

Mirror, mirror of my shortcomings, tell me the truth

I am here without any filter and without any deception

I am like this beyond the wall of my glances

Look for the reflex inside me and you will never lie me again

I am here, here in front of you

Masks off from the eyes, off from the soul

My heart, my essence will treasure

I just want to be the real me, everyday and you will be and you will be a memory

I am here without any filter and without any deception

I am like this beyond the veil of my glances

Look for the reflex inside me and you will never lie to me again

I am here, here in front of you
