Times Square

Switch on
switch on once more
lights at Times Square.

Switch on for me
in my last night in New York.

The hot air in the streets is a gentle cloak
that wraps me up.

Like windmills moving and moving
don’t stop your dance.

Let my eyes get lost
again
into your
whirl
so sweet
so intoxicating.

Times Square

Accendetevi
ancora una volta
luci di Times Square.

Accendetevi per me
in questa ultima sera a New York
.

L’aria calda delle strade è un manto leggero
che mi avvolge.

Come girandole in perenne movimento
non fermate la vostra danza.

Lasciate che i miei occhi
si perdano
ancora
nel vostro vortice
dolce e inebriante.
