Volume I:
   La stagione del tuo amore - The Season of Your Love

La stagione del tuo amore
non è più la primavera
ma nei giorni del tuo autunno
hai la dolcezza della sera

Se un mattino fra i capelli
troverai un po' di neve
nel giardino del tuo amore
verrò a raccogliere il bucaneve

passa il tempo sopra il tempo
ma non devi aver paura
sembra correre come il vento
però il tempo non ha premura

Piangi e ridi come allora
ridi e piangi e ridi ancora
ogni gioia ogni dolore
poi ritrovarli nella luce di un'ora

Passa il tempo sopra il tempo
ma non devi aver paura
sembra correre come il vento
però il tempo non ha premura

Piangi e ridi come allora
ridi e piangi e ridi ancora
ogni gioia ogni dolore
puoi ritrovarli nella luce di un'ora

"La stagione del tuo amore" did not appear on the first pressing of Volume I, as it was the replacement for "Caro amore" when permission for the use of the music was not obtained from Joaquìn Rodrigo.



The season of your love
is no longer spring,
but in the days of your autumn
you have the sweetness of the evening.

If one morning in your hair
you find a bit of snow,
in the garden of your love
I’ll come to pick the snowflake.

Time passes over time,
but you need not fear.
It seems to run like the wind,
but time is in no hurry.

Cry and laugh as you did then,
laugh and cry and laugh again,
every joy, every sorrow,
then revisit them in the light of an hour.

Time passes over time,
but you need not fear.
It seems to run like the wind,
but time is in no hurry.

Cry and laugh as you did then,
laugh and cry and laugh still again,
every joy, every sorrow,
then revisit them in the light of an hour.
