Vedrai vedrai

Luigi Tenco (Luigi Tenco, Jolly Hi-Fi Records, 1965)

Quando la sera me ne torno a casa
non ho neanche voglia di parlare
tu non guardarmi con quella tenerezza
come fossi un bambino che ritorna deluso.
Sì, lo so che questa non è certo la vita
che ho sognato un giorno per noi.

Vedrai, vedrai Vedrai che cambierà
forse non sarà domani
ma un bel giorno cambierà.
Vedrai, vedrai
non son finito sai
non so dirti come e quando
ma vedrai che cambierà.

Preferirei sapere che piangi
che mi rimproveri di averti delusa
e non vederti sempre così dolce
accettare da me tutto quello che viene
mi fa disperare il pensiero di te
e di me che non so darti di più.

Vedrai, vedrai
vedrai che cambierà
forse non sarà domani
ma un bel giorno cambierà.
Vedrai, vedrai
no, non son finito sai
non so dirti come e quando,
ma un bel giorno cambierà

You'll see, You'll See

When I go home at night
I don’t even want to talk.
Don’t look at me with that loving look
as if I was a disheartened child.
yes, I know that this is really not the kind of life
that I dreamt for us.

You’ll see, you’ll see
you’ll see that things will change.
it may not be tomorrow
but one fine day things will change.
You’ll see, you’ll see
no, this is not the end of me
I can’t tell you when and how
but you’ll see that things will change.

I’d rather know that you’re crying
that you rebuke me for letting you down
rather than seeing you so sweet all the time
accepting whatever comes from me.
it kills me the thought of you
and of me that I can’t give you more.

You’ll see, you’ll see
you’ll see that things will change.
It may not be tomorrow
but one fine day things will change.
You’ll see, you’ll see
no, this is not the end of me
I can’t tell you when and how
but one fine day things will turn around.
