Vola colomba (English translation)

English translation

Fly, Dove

God in heaven, if I were a dove
I would like to fly up there where my love is,
Who, kneeled at San Giusto1
Prays with a melancholy soul:
Let my love return,
Return soon
 
Fly, white dove, fly
Tell him that I'll be back
 
Tell her that she'll no longer be alone
and that I'll never leave her again
 
We were happy united, and they divided us
The sun, sky, and sea smiled on us
We had left the shipyard
Happy with our work
And the bell, ding dong
Was our chorus
 
Fly, white dove, fly
Tell him that I'll be back
 
Every night, I fall asleep sad
And in my dreams I cry and invoke you
Even my father2 dreams of you
He thinks of the pains suffered,
Cries and hides his face among the covers
 
Fly, white dove, fly
Tell her that I'll be back
 
Tell her that I'll be back
