"I don't believe in an interventionist God, but I know, darling, that you do
but if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
not to intervene when it came to you
not to touch a hair on your head to leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you then direct you into my arms"

("Into My Arms", 1998)

On those sentimental nights In queste notti sentimentali
You hold me in your sights Mi stringi nei tuoi sguardi
And shoot me down E mi spari
And though there ain't no enemy here E nonostante non ci sia un nemico qui
You keep me very near Mi tieni vicino
And shoot me down E mi spari
Shoot me down Mi spari
You hands, they flutter up Le tue mani, tremano
Armed and dangerous, my buttercup Armate e pericolose
And shoot me down E mi sparano
In flames In fiamme
Stand back, stand back and let me breathe Arretra, e lasciami respirare
I think I'm falling out of here Penso di star cadendo fuori di qui
I can here the grass grow, Posso sentire l’erba crescere
I can here the melting snow Posso sentire la neve sciogliersi
I can feel your breathe against my ear Il tuo respiro sul mio orecchio
I might just disappear Potrei semplicemente scomparire
Wouldn't that be nice Non sarebbe carino?
Wouldn't that be nice Non sarebbe carino?
Well wouldn't that be nice Beh, non sarebbe carino?
I look into your eyes Guardo nei tuoi occhi
And it comes as no great surprise E capisco senza sorpresa
You're gonna shoot me down Che stai per spararmi
Shoot me down Sparami
I know that when you smile So che quando sorridi
It'll be just a short, little while Dopo poco
Shoot me down Mi sparerai
In flames In fiamme
Shoot me down Mi spari
In flames In fiamme
Shoot me down Mi spari
In flames In fiamme
