Lyrics to La Mama Morta (engl. Translation)
La Mama Morta (engl. Translation) Video:
My mother is dying Close to the door to my room While dying, she saved me!... Then, in the dead of night I left with Bersi. And in the distance, Flames leapt up behind us; Fierce tongues of fire set all the sky aglow, Lighting our path. My home, my beloved home, Was burnt to ashes. I was alone. I had no shelter. What hunger! What misery! What need! What danger! Then I fell ill and Bersi, poor faithful creature, She would not leave me; She bartered her beauty to keep me alive. I bring misfortune even to those Who love me. It so happened in that pain That my poor heart awoke to love. In a voice of soft compassion he murmured: And yet you live! In my eyes is your heaven! You are not alone. Thy tears of despair I will banish. I am beside you, To guide your faltering footsteps. Smile and hope! For Love itself am I! (I AM love!) Though thy path be dark with terror, Take heart! I am the divine! I am oblivion! I am God. Raise your eyes and behold me; I come to thee from out of the vault of heaven above, Making earth a paradise. I am love! And the angel hovered near me, And kissed me with the cold kiss of death. This worthless body is my body! Take it wherever you will, For I am dead already.
