Be my love, for no one else can end this yearning
This need that you and you alone create
Just fill my arms the way you've filled my dreams
The dreams that you inspire with ev'ry sweet desire
Be my love, and with your kisses set me burning
One kiss is all I need to seal my fate
And hand in hand, we'll find love's promised land
There'll be no one but you, for me eternally
If you will be my love

Be my love, for no one else can end this yearning
This need that you and you alone create
Just fill my arms the way you've filled my dreams
The dreams that you inspire with ev'ry sweet desire
Be my love, and with your kisses set me burning
One kiss is all I need to seal my fate
And hand in hand, we'll find love's promised land
There'll be no one but you, for me eternally

Tristesse

length: 4:30
tenor vocals: José Carreras
conductor: John Cameron
orchestra: The Angel Orchestra
È triste il mio cuor senza di te

Che sei lontana e più non pensi
A me, dimmi perché

Fai soffrir quest'anima che t'ama

E ti vuole vicin

Sei tu la vision che ogni sera

Sognar fa il cuor che nell'amore
Spera, ma è un'illusion

Più da me non tornerai

Forse un'altro bacerai

Mentre triste vola la canzon
Che canto a te

Solamente a te

Dolce sogno d'or

Questo vuole il cuor

Triste senz'amor.

Amore Perduto

length: 3:38
tenor vocals: José Carreras
conductor: John Cameron
orchestra: The Angel Orchestra
Il fiume dei ricordi
Il greto del passato
Sta ritornando da me
Ma dove ti troveró
Se tu non vuoi?
Risento i baci su di me
I baci tuoi
Gli mi bruciano ancor
Che mi fauno languir
Che mi fanno morir
Il fiume dei ricordi
Il greto del passato
Sta ritornando da me
Ma dove ti troveró
Se tu non vuoi?

E il mare che ti vide lí
Il suo calor il suo tepor
Tramutare vorrei
In un gelido mar
In un buio mortal

En Aranjuez con tu amor

length: 3:57
tenor vocals: José Carreras
conductor: Michael Reed
orchestra: The Angel Orchestra
composer: Joaquín Rodrigo
lyricist: Alfredo García Segura
Aranjuez,
Un lugar de ensuenos y de amor
Donde un rumor de fuentes de cristal
En el jardín parece hablar
En voz baja a las rosas.
Aranjuez,
Hoy las hojas secas sin color
Que barre el viento
Son recuerdos del romance
que una vez
Juntos empezamos tu y yo
Y sin razón olvidamos.
Quizá ese amor escondido esté
En un atardecer
En la brisa o en la flor
Esperando tu regreso.

Aranjuez,
Hoy las hojas seces sin color
Que barre el viento
Son recuerdos del romance
que una vez
Juntos empezamos tu y yo
Y sin razón olvidamos.
En Aranjuez, amor
Tu y yo

If I Loved You

length: 3:32

conductor: David Giménez Carreras
orchestra: The London Musicians Orchestra
lyricist: Oscar Hammerstein II
composer: Richard Rodgers

If I loved you
Time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
'Round in circles I'd go
Longin' to tell you, but afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by!
Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I loved you
If I loved you

Guy- well anyway you don't love me thats what you said wasn't it?
Girl-yes
Guy-your a funny kid don't remember ever meeting a girl like you
Say are you trying to get me to marry you?
Girl- oh no
Guy- well then whats put it in my head. i wonder what'd it be like
Girl-what
Guy-nothing, i know what'd it be like it'd be awful, i can just see myself

Guy:
Kind of scrawny and pale
Pickin at my food
And lovesick like any other guy
I'd throw away my sweaters
And dress up like a dude in a diggy and a collar and a tie
If i loved you
And somehow i can see just exactly how i'td be
If i loved you
Time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
'Round in circles I'd go
Longin' to tell you, but afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by!
Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I loved you
If I loved you

librettist: Luigi Illica, Giuseppe Giacosa
composer: Giacomo Puccini

E lucevan le stelle...
E olezzava la terra...
Stridea l'uscio dell'orto
E un passo sfiorava la rena...
Entrava ella, fragante
Mi cadea fra le braccia...
Oh, dolci baci, o languide carezze
Mentr'io fremente
Le belle forme disciogliea dai veli!
Svanì per sempre il sogno mio d'amore...
L'ora è fuggita e muoio disperato
E muoio disperato!
E non ho amato mai tanto la vita...
Tanto la vita!

Che gelida manina

librettist: Luigi Illica, Giuseppe Giacosa
composer: Giacomo Puccini

Che gelida manina! Se la lasci riscaldar
Cercar che giova? Al buio non si trova
Ma per fortuna e una notte di luna
E qui la luna l'abbiiamo vicina
Aspetti, signorina, le diro con due parole chi son
Chi son, e che faccio, come vivo, Vuole?
Chi son? Chi son? Son un poeta
Che cosa faccio? Scrivo. E come vivo? Vivo
In poverta mia lieta scialo da gran signore
Rimi ed inni d'amore
Per sogni e per chimere e per castelli in aria
L'anima ho milionaria
Talor del mio forziere ruban tutti
I gioielle due ladri: gli occhi belli
V'entrar con voi pur ora ed i miei sogni usati
Ed i bei sogni miei tosto si dileguar!
Ma il furto non m'accora poiche
Poiche v'ha preso stanza la speranza
Or che mi conoscete parlate voi
Deh parlate. Chi siete? Vi piaccia dir?

Vide 'o mare quant?è bello,
Spira tantu sentimento,
Comme tu a chi tiene mente,
Ca scetato 'o faie sunnà.

Guarda, gua?, chistu ciardino;
Siente, sie? sti sciure arance:
Nu profumo accussi fino
Dinto 'o core se ne va?

E tu dice: "I? parto, addio!"
T?alluntane da stu core?
Da sta terra de l?ammore?
Tiene 'o core 'e nun turnà?

Ma nun me lassà,
Nun darme stu turmiento!
Torna a Surriento,
Famme campà!

Vide 'o mare de Surriento,
Che tesoro tene nfunno:
Chi ha girato tutto 'o munno
Nun l'ha visto comm'a ccà.

Guarda attuorno sti Sserene,
Ca te guardano 'ncantate,
E te vonno tantu bene...
Te vulessero vasà.

E tu dice: "I' parto, addio!"
T'alluntane da stu core
Da sta terra de l'ammore
Tiene 'o core 'e nun turnà?

Ma nun me lassà,
Nun darme stu turmiento!
Torna a Surriento,
Famme campà!

Torna a Surriento,

Granada, tierra soñada por mí
mi cantar se vuelve gitano cuando es para tí
mi cantar hecho de fantasía
mi cantar flor de melancolía
que yo te vengo a dar.
Granada,
tierra ensangrentada
en tardes de toros.
Mujer que conserva el embrujo
de los ojos moros;
te sueño rebelde why gitana
cubierta de flores
why beso tu boca de grana
jugosa manzana
que me habla de amores.

Granada manola,
cantada en coplas preciosas
no tengo otra cosa que darte
que un ramo de rosas,
de rosas de suave fragancia
que le dieran marco a la Virgen Morena.

Granada,
tu tierra está llena
de lindas mujeres
de sangre why de sol.
