Lyrics:

Credo di sapere
I believe I know
Cosa è vero nella vita
What really counts in life
Cosa il mondo ti può dare
What the world has to offer
E ho capito che quello che cerco non c’è mai stato
And I realize what I searched for has never been there

Vivo di diamanti
I only live for diamonds
Solo splendidi brillanti
Only sparkling diamonds
Più sinceri degli amanti
More genuine than lovers
Che ti danno soltanto collane di giorni amari
Who give you only a chain of bitter days
L’amore non, non è mai trasparente
Love is never, never simple
Non è come un diamante
It is not like a diamond
Non brilla mai
It never sparkles
Solo per te
Only for you

Pioggia di diamanti
Give me a shower of diamonds
Io mi fido dei brillanti
I put my trust in diamonds
Più sinceri degli amanti
More genuine than lovers
Io non voglio sentire parole, parole ancora
I don’t want to hear endless words
L’amore, non, non è mai trasparente
Love is never, never simple
Non è come un diamante
It’s not like a diamond
Non brilla mai
It never sparkles
Solo per te
Only for you

Vivo di diamanti, diamanti, diamanti
I only live for diamonds, diamonds, diamonds
Splendidi brillanti, brillanti,brillanti,
Sparkling diamonds, diamonds, diamonds
Diamanti per me
Diamonds for me.

Lyrics:

Kiss me, honey, honey, kiss me
Thrill me, honey, honey, thrill me
Don’t care even if I blow my top
But, honey, honey, don’t stop

I’d like to play a little game with you
A little game especially made for two
If you come close then I will show you how
Closer, closer, now

Kiss me, honey, honey, kiss me
Thrill me, honey, honey, thrill me
Don’t care even if I blow my top
But, honey, honey, don’t stop

We’ve never played this little game before
If you relax then you’ll enjoy it more
Just settle down and let me teach you how
Closer, closer, now

Kiss me, honey, honey, kiss me
Thrill me, honey, honey, thrill me
Don’t care even if I blow my top
But, honey, honey, don’t stop
(But, honey, honey, don’t stop)

You kiss so well my lips begin to burn
And I can tell I’ve got a lot to learn
So hold me close and darling show me how
Closer, closer, now

Kiss me, honey, honey, kiss me
Thrill me, honey, honey, thrill me
Don’t care even if I blow my top
But, honey, honey, don’t stop
(Don’t care even if I blow my top)
But, honey, honey, don’t stop
(Never stop)

Lyrics:

He doesn’t act as though he cares,
But deep inside I know he cares,
And that is why I am tied right by his side.

As longs as he needs me
I know where I must be
I’ll cling on steadfastly
As longs as he needs me

As long as life is long
I’ll love him, right or wrong
And somehow I’ll be strong
As long as he needs me

If you are lonely then you will know
When someone needs you you love them so
I won’t betray his trust
Though people say I must
I’ve got to stay true just
As longs as he needs me

If you are lonely then you will know
When someone needs you you love them so
I won’t betray his trust
Though people say I must
I’ve got to stay true just
As longs as he needs me
