Con Te Partirò is a phenomenally stunning Italian song that has the ability to fill anyone who listens to it with many emotions. The music of the song was originally written by Francesco Sartori and the lyrics were written by Lucio Quarantotto. Andrea Bocelli was the first artist to ever sing it. He first performed at the Sanremo Festival in 1995. One year later, Bocelli released another version of this song. Unlike the previous Italian version, this one was in English and called “Time to Say Goodbye”. This song was a duet that he sang with the amazing English class-crossover soprano, Sarah Brightman. He then released another version of it in which he sang in Italian and Sarah Brightman sang in German. The release of this song was an amazing success as it topped charts across many European countries. This version became one of the best selling singles, and over 12 million copies of it were sold!music

Lyrics in English

When I’m alone
I dream on the horizon
and words fail;
yes, I know there is no light
in a room where the sun is absent,
if you are not with me, with me.
At the windows
show everyone my heart
which you set alight;
enclose within me
the light you
encountered on the street.
 
Time to say goodbye
to countries I never
saw and shared with you,
now, yes, I shall experience them.
I’ll go with you
on ships across seas
which, I know,
no, no, exist no longer.
It’s time to say goodbye…
 
When you are far away
I dream on the horizon
And words fail,
and, Yes, I know
that you are with me;
you, my moon, are here with me,
my sun, you are here with me,
with me, with me, with me.
 
Time to say goodbye
To countries I never
Saw and shared with you,
now, yes, I shall experience them.
I’ll go with you
On ships across seas
which, I know,
no, no, exist no longer,
 
with you, I shall experience them again.
I’ll go with you
On ships across seas
Which, I know,
No, no, exist no longer;
with you I shall experience them again.
I’ll go with you,
I with you.
