Our last September lyrics

How cold your fingers will remember
and it was just a warm September
How cold your fingers will remember
and it was just a warm September

How blue the sea, how blue your eyes
we stood alone behind the moon
Under the cloudy skies
we kissed a lonely time
remember what if it was September

And raindrops fell so warm and clear
between our lips, before our wind of fear

How cold your fingers will remember
and it was just a warm September

[interlude]

How blue the sea how blue your eyes
We stood alone behind the moon
under the cloudy skies
we kissed a lonely time
remmeber what if it was September.

and raindrops fell
so warm and clear
between our lips before our wind of fear

How cold your fingers will remember
and it was just,  just a warm September

How cold your fingers will remember
and it was just a warm September,
September, September, September.

And maybe more lyrics

If your love has reached a certain end
all you do is nothing but pretend.
Try to wear a smile, keep it for a while
and you'll keep on acting 'till the end.

Each year life you're spoiling, so believe
memories won't hurt you if you leave.
Feel the smooth caress, things that you forget,
memories won't hurt you if you leave.

This is life, here.
Keep it and love it.
Dry all teardrops,
you'll soon forget.

Face the fact as everything before

and when love will lock again your door
you will say hello and this way you'll go
you will love the same and maybe more.

[interlude]

This is life, here.
Keep it and love it.
Dry all teardrops,
you'll soon forget.

Face the fact as everything before
and when love will lock again your door
you will say hello and there you go again dear
you will love you same and maybe more.

A precious white rose lyrics

I gave you a precious white rose
In a day like the 4th of May
you carressed me with your eyes
and I knew, love was here to stay
because all the dreams I had for you
what a sweet smile on your face
Life was your first warm embrace
I gave you a precious white rose

[interlude]

My white rose became your white rose
and the days came without tomorrow
We shared all the moments of sorrow
than you stepped on my precious white rose

You stepped on my hopes and my dreaming
and I lost my sense of living
I gave my heart in this white rose
you stepped on my precious white rose

[interlude]

You stepped on my hopes and my dreaming
and I lost my sense of living
I gave my heart in this white rose
you stepped on my precious white rose

You stepped on my hopes and my dreaming
and I lost my sense of living
I gave my heart in this white rose
you stepped on my precious white rose

Il peperone lyrics

Da quando tu prendi, tu prendi il solleone
sei rossa, spellata, sei come un peperone.

Bagnata dall'acqua, dall'acqua di sale,
baciata dal vento che viene dal mare,
accanto alla riva pian piano ti lasci bruciare dal sol.

Con tutte le creme massaggi la pelle
ma giorno per giorno ti riempi di bolle,
le gambe, le braccia, il naso e le spalle, ti lasci briucar.

Da quando tu prendi, tu prendi il solleone
sei rossa, spellata, sei come un peperone.
Da quando tu prendi, tu prendi il solleone
sei rossa, spellata, sei come un peperone.

Ormai pure all'ombra continui a scottarti,
nemmeno la luna riesce a calmarti,
appena ti stringo tu urli, tu piangi, mio pallido amor.

Avevi le labbra cosė vellutate e oggi le hai rosse
cosė screpolate che sembra che io baci
le ortiche di un campo ingiallito dal sol.

Da quando tu prendi, tu prendi il solleone
sei rossa spellata, sei come un peperone.
Da quando tu prendi, tu prendi il solleone
sei rossa spellata, sei come un peperone...

la la la ....

Dream in my heart lyrics

I walk in the streets
with a dream in my heart
yeah yeah dream in my heart
and look for a friend who lives far apart
yeah yeah lives far apart

He was so glad,
his eyes where so blue
untill the day he suddenly knew
that someone else has taken his girl
and changed his life from common to well

He packed all his things, two bags full of pain.
yeah yeah bags full of pain
and left our small town
a night with a rain
yeah yeah a night with rain

So here I stay I hope and I pray
that he'll be back a hot summer day
I tell him forgive me for taking your girl.
yeah yeah yeah
