Il Divo

I don’t know why but I can never seem to get past the idea of “boybands”. Il Divo is perhaps the more metrosexual, classy version of Boyzone and Take That. It doesn’t help that the men – yes, they are wayyy older than my 26 years of age (The youngest was born in’73 and the oldest in ’68.) – are gorgeous, talented and well-trained in the arts of classical singing. Even Wiki has an article on them!!!!

My favourite? In terms of voice and looks (sorry leh, can never get pass that), it has to be the Frenchman, Sebastien Izambard. (I mean, the rest are cute but nothing like French style and that sexy French voice.)

😆

Since yesterday, I’ve been listening to their albums – they have three out (Il Divo, Ancora and a Christmas album) – and well, thought I would share some of their more ‘nicely’ sung songs.

Everytime I Look At You (You would have heard this over the radio.)
I used to think that I was strong
I realise now I was wrong
Cause everytime I see your face
My mind becomes an empty space
And with you lying next to me
Feels like I can hardly breathe

I close my eyes
The moment I surrender to you
Let love be blind
Innocent and tenderly true
So lead me through tonite
But please turn out the light
Cause im lost everytime I look at you

And in the morning when you go
Wake me gently so ill know
That loving you was not a dream
And whisper softly what it means to be with me
Then every moment we’re apart
Will be a lifetime to my heart

I close my eyes
The moment I surrender to you
Let love be blind
Innocent and tenderly true
So lead me through tonite
But please turn out the light
Cause im lost everytime I look at you
Lost everytime I look at

Dentro Un Altro Si (No idea what it means but who cares? ^_~)
Sai l’amore cambia in noi
Cambia forma e poi
Piano se ne va
Cosi rimaniamo qui
Indifesi noi
Persi e fragli

Noi che eravamo cosi simili
Senza paure senza limiti

Ma io lo ritroverò l’amore che non ho
Per le vie del mondo
Io ti ritroverò
Prima o poi cosi
Dentro un altro si

Io avrò la forza per
Trovare l’energia
Nella vita mia
Rinascerò da questi brividi
In territori vasti e liberi

Ed io ritoverò l’amore che non ho
Per le vie del mondo
Io ti ritroverò
Prima o poi così
Dentro un altro si

Io lo ritroverò l’amore che non ho
Io ti ritroverò
Prima o poi così
Prima o poi dentro un altro si

My Way (A Mi Manera) (Super old song and super famous too!)
El fin muy cerca está, lo afrontaré serenamente,
ya ves, yo he sido así, te lo diré sinceramente
Viví la intensidad y no encontré jamás fronteras
jugué sin descansar y a mi manera.

Jamás viví un amor que para mí fuera importante
tomé solo la flor y lo mejor de cada instante
Viajé y disfruté, no se si más que otro cualquiera
si bien, todo eso fué a mi manera.

Tal vez lloré, tal vez reí,
tal vez gané o tal vez perdí
ahora sé que fuí feliz, que si lloré también amé
y todo fué, puedo decir, a mi manera.

Quizás también dudé cuando mejor me divertía
quizás yo desprecié aquello que no comprendía
hoy sé que infierno fuí y que afronté ser como era
y así logré seguir, a mi manera.

Porque ya sabrás que el hombre al fin
conocerás por su vivir
no hay porque hablar, ni que decir,
ni recordar, ni hay que fingir
puedo llegar hasta el final, A MI MANERA!!

  1. I love them too!! I absolutely agree with you that the French man is the best looking among all 4 of them! My favourite is I Believe in You. I can never get bored of that song! 🙂

    Hmm… now I feel like learning French. 😛
