The Canadian Tenors La Califfa

Tu non crede perche

Questa crudelta di padroni

Ha visto in me

Solo uno schiavo che

Mi mett’ anch’

lo alla tua catena

Se attraverso la città

Questa ipocrita, tua città

Il corpo mio

Che passa tra di voi

È’ un invettiva contro la vittà

Tu ritroverai con me

La più splendida proprietà

Un attimo di sole sopra noi

Alla ricerca di te

Tu ritroverai con me

La più splendida proprietà

Un attimo di sole sopra noi

Alla ricerca di te

Un attimo di sole sopra noi

Alla ricerca di te.

The Canadian Tenors World Stand Still

Life has a temple we never have time for

Feels like we’re all missing out

No time for the beauty that always surrounds me

Walking with my head hanging down

I wouldn’t have believed it

Cause I never used to see it

You give this life meaning around me

When you make the world stand still

You make the world stand still

I keep spinning around until you slow me down

You make me real, when you make the world stand still

Just like the wind blows and turning in circles

When will my feet touch the ground

Lost in a race, where no one’s a winner

To finally turn me around

I wouldn’t have believed it

Cause I never used to see it

You give this life meaning around me

When you make the world stand still

You make the world stand still

I keep spinning around until you slow me down

You make me real, when you make the world stand still

I’m running, my eyes closed, I’m running

I try to keep up with all those around me

I find that I’m rushing, I can’t see

All of the beautiful things until you make the world stand still

You make me see and feel

I keep spinning around until you slow me down

You make me real

When you make the world stand still

I’m running, my eyes closed, I’m running

I try to keep up with all those around me

I find that I’m rushing, I can’t see

All of the beautiful things until you make the world stand still

With you the world stands still

The Canadian Tenors I Only Know How To Love

They say love can take you far

Be your self and there you are

Once in a lifetime when will she be mine, heaven knows

Love can take you

Up the mountains, down below

Day or night she won’t let go,

Love like a warm wind

Sworn to the feelin’

Need to know

What does it feel like, when can I say

It’s the furthest I’ve ever been and I found a way

What does it sound like, when will I know,

How does it feel like, letting go,

A memory of – I only know how to love

When I dream I’m in her arms

Feeling safe and far from harm

She knows where I’ve been, places that I’ve seen, I need to know

Heaven tell me

What does it feel like, when can I say

It’s the furthest I’ve ever been and I found a way

What does it sound like, when will I know,

How does it feel like, letting go,

A memory – I only know how to love

Deep down inside she’s here tonight by my side

What does it sound like, when will I know

How does it feel like, letting go

A memory – I only know how to love

I only know how to love

The Canadian Tenors Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

What have I got to do to make you love me

What have I got to do to make you care

What do I do when lightning strikes me

And I wake to find that you’re not there

What do I do to make you want me

What have I got to do to be heard

What do I say when it’s all over

And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad

It’s a sad, sad situation

And it’s getting more and more absurd

It’s sad, so sad

Why can’t we talk it over

Oh it seems to me

That sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad

It’s a sad, sad situation

And it’s getting more and more absurd

It’s sad, so sad

Why can’t we talk it over

Oh it seems to me

That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I do to make you love me

What have I got to do to be heard

What do I do when lightning strikes me

What have I got to do

What have I got to do

When sorry seems to be the hardest word

The Canadian Tenors Hallelujah

I’ve heard that there was a secret chord

That David played and it pleased the Lord

But you don’t really care for music, do ya?

It goes like this the 4th, the 5th, minor fall the major lift

The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty and the moon light overthrew ya

She tied you to a kitchen chair

She broke your throne, she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby, I’ve been here before

I know this room and I’ve walked this floor

I used to live alone before I knew ya

Seen your flag on the marble arch

And love is not a victory march

Its cold and it’s a broken, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Did my best, it wasn’t much

Couldn’t feel so I tried to touch

I told the truth I didn’t come to fool ya

Even though it all went wrong

Stand before the Lord of song

With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The Canadian Tenors Because We Believe

Guarda tuori è già mattina

Questo è un giorno

che ricorderai

Alzati in fretta e vai

C’è chi crede in te

Non ti arrendere

Guarda avanti e non

voltarti mai

Accarezza con i sogni tuoi

Le tue speranze e poi

Verso il giorno che verrà

C’è un traguardo là

(Because We Believe cont’d)

Like stars across the sky

Che per avvincere

Tu dovrai vincere

We were born to shine

All of us here because we believe

Once in every life

There comes a time

We walk out all alone

And into the light

The moment won’t last but then,

We remember it again

When we close our eyes.

Like stars across the sky

Che per avvincere

Tu dovrai vincere

We were born to shine

All of us here because we believe

Non arrenderti

Qualcuno è con te

Like stars across the sky

We were born to shine

Che per avvincere

Dovrai vincere

E allora vincerai!

The Canadian Tenors Always There

When I am less than I should be

And I just can’t face the day

When darkness falls around me

And I just can’t find my way

When my eyes don’t clearly see

And I stumble through it all

You I lean upon, you keep me strong

And you raise me when I fall

You are there when I most need you

You are there so constantly

You come shining through

You always do

You are always there for me

When life brings me to my knees

When my back’s against the wall

You are standing there right with me

Just to keep me standing tall

Though a burden I may be

You don’t weary, you don’t rest

You are reaching out to carry me,

And I know I’m heaven blessed.

You are there when I most need you

You are there so constantly

You come shining through

You always do

You are always there for me

You are there when I most need you

You are there so constantly

You come shining through

You always do

You are always there for me

You are there when I most need you (you are there)

You are there so constantly (so constantly)

You come shining through

You always do

You are always there for me

For me

The Canadian Tenors O Holy Night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,

It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth.

Long lay the world in sin and error pining.

Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!

O night divine, the night when Christ was born;

O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.

O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,

Now come the Wisemen from out of the Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;

In all our trials born to be our friends.

He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,

Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,

His law is love and His gospel is peace.

Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.

And in his name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,

With all our hearts we praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,

His power and glory ever more proclaim!

His power and glory ever more proclaim!

The Canadian Tenors Belle

Belle

C’est un mot qu’on dirait inventé pour elle

Quand elle danse et qu’elle met son corps à jour, tel

Un oiseau qui étend ses ailes pour s’envoler

Alors je sens l’enfer s’ouvrir sous mes pieds

J’ai posé mes yeux sous sa robe de gitane

A quoi me sert encore de prier Notre-Dame

Quel est celui qui lui jettera la première pierre

Celui-là ne mérite pas d’être sur terre

O Lucifer! Oh! Laisse-moi rien qu’une fois

Glisser mes doigts dans les cheveux d’Esméralda

Belle

Est-ce le diable qui s’est incarné en elle

Pour détourner mes yeux du Dieu éternel

Qui a mis dans mon être ce désir charnel

Pour m’empêcher de regarder vers le Ciel

Elle porte en elle le péché originel

La désirer fait-il de moi un criminel

Celle

Qu’on prenait pour une fille de joie une fille de rien

Semble soudain porter la croix du genre humain

O Notre-Dame! Oh! laisse-moi rien qu’une fois

Pousser la porte du jardin d’Esméralda

Belle Malgré ses grands yeux noirs qui vous ensorcellent

La demoiselle serait-elle encore pucelle ?

Quand ses mouvements me font voir monts et merveilles

Sous son jupon aux couleurs de l’arc-en-ciel

Ma dulcinée laissez-moi vous être infidèle

Avant de vous avoir mené jusqu’à l’autel

Quel

Est l’homme qui détournerait son regard d’elle

Sous peine d’être changé en statue de sel

O Fleur-de-Lys, Je ne suis pas homme de foi

J’irai cueillir la fleur d’amour d’Esméralda

J’ai posé mes yeux sous sa robe de gitane

A quoi me sert encore de prier Notre-Dame

Quel Est celui qui lui jettera la première pierre

Celui-là ne mérite pas d’être sur terre

O Lucifer! Oh! laisse-moi rien qu’une fois

Glisser mes doigts dans les cheveux d’Esméralda

Esméralda

The Canadian Tenors Silent Night

Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glories stream from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!

Christ, the Savior is born

Christ, the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night

Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
