Perry Como In Italy - 1966

Love Theme from "La Strada"  Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
( Traveling Down a Lonely Road )

Why am I alone?
Why am I alone,
Traveling down a lonely road?
 
Darling, can't you see?
I don't wanna be,
Traveling down a lonely road.
 
If you would open up your heart
And let my love come shining through,
You'd know how much
I wanna walk the road with you . . .
 
Won't you understand?
Won't you take my hand?
It's been such a lonely road . . .
( Tu che amar non sai 
Tu che amar non puoi
Sei stregata dall’amor
 
Son questi occhi tuoi
Freddi piú che mai
Ma che febbre nel tuo cuor )Translation: You, who don't know how to love. You, who are unable to love. You are bewitched by love. Your eyes are colder than ever. But there's fever in your heart.
 
If you would open up your heart
And let my love come shining through,
You'd know how much
I wanna walk the road with you . . .
 
Won't you understand?
Won't you take my hand?
It's been such a lonely road . . .
 
Such a lonely road . . .
