Siamo i soli svegli in tutto l'universo
E non conosco ancora bene il tuo deserto
Forse è in un posto del mio cuore dove il sole è sempre spento
Dove a volte ti perdo, ma se voglio ti prendo
We're the only ones awake in the whole universe
And I don't know still your desert well
Maybe it's in a place in my heart where the sun is always off
Where sometimes I lose you, but if I want I catch you
