Rhapsody of Fire – Il Canto del Vento (Full Quenya Version)

Rhapsody of Fire…. One of the greatest power metal bands, with great sagas within their lyrics and, by far, one of my favorite bands.

They also have something pretty special on their songs: Italian, one of the most beautiful languages ever (and that I yet need to learn….)

So, I present you: Súrelindalë!

Lastëanyë er i súren
I míqua ni hequa
Hehtaina nyénië
Lómë ná Mandonya
Nyénië, hehtaina nyénië
Lómë ná Mandonya
Oio fainaina hwesta
Hilyëan ar lencavë  sacëan sen
I lussë  umbarwassë

Nan cuina len, olorinyar nar len                       
Lirin len
Tanca vilyassë
Caurinqua fírala elen

Hehtaina lindion
Sië ner cuinë hendulyanen
Sí nan cuina ar tiutan immo… Nan cuina…
Lúmenya massen
Ñwalmenya cendelelyassë
I quildë,umbarinya
Nútina er lún

Nan cuina len, olorinyar nar len         
Lirin len
Tanca vilyassë
Caurinqua fírala elen

Lissevë né cuina
Oira lómëa olórë
Sí uryëantë hehtainë
Sámammainen
Nírer, nírer ahava
Illumë fainaina órenyassë
Quétantë, falmar quétar
Hópo, sintanë silumë

Nan cuina len, olorinyar nar len     
Lirin len
Tanca vilyassë
Caurinqua fírala elen

Nan cuina len, olorinyar nar len      
Lirin len
Tanca vilyassë
Caurinqua fírala elen

Nan cuina len, olorinyar nar len    
Lirin len
Tanca vilyassë
Caurinqua fírala elen

The original lyrics, in Italian:

Ascolto ancora il vento
che in disparte mi accarezza
dimenticato pianto
prigioniero della sera
Pianto, dimenticato pianto
prigioniero della sera
un respiro sempre acceso
seguo e cerco lentamente
nel sospiro del destino

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE

Di canzoni dimenticate
dai tuoi occhi gia’ vissute
ora vivo e mi consolo… vivo…
Il mio tempo, nelle mani
nel tuo viso il mio tormento
il silenzio, il mio domani
ancorato ad un momento

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE

Vissuti dolcemente
sogni di un’ eterna notte
ora bruciano traditi
dalle nostre memorie
Lacrime, lacrime di rabbia
nel mio cuore sempre accese
parlano, parlano le onde
di un porto ormai svanito

VIVO PER TE, SOGNO DI TE
CANTO DI TE
NEL CIELO INCASTRATA
TIMIDA STELLA MORENTE

And, for those that, like me, do not speak Italian, the English translation:

I’m still listening to the wind
Who’s caressing me aside
Forgotten crying
Evening’s prisoner
Crying, forgotten crying
Evening’s prisoner
An endless lighted breath
I follow and slowly search for it
In the fate’s whisper

I live for you, I dream of you
I sing for you
Embedded in the sky
Shy dying star

Of forgotten songs
Yet lived by your eyes
Now I live and take comfort… I live…
My time in the hands
My torment in your face
The silence, my future
Anchored to one moment

I live for you, I dream of you
I sing for you
Embedded in the sky
Shy dying star

Sweetly lived
Eternal night dreams
Now they’ re burning betrayed
By our memories
Tears, tears of rage
Always lighted in my heart
They’re talking, waves are talking
About a harbour, faded by now

I live for you, I dream of you
I sing for you
Embedded in the sky
Shy dying star

I live for you, I dream of you
I sing for you
Embedded in the sky
Shy dying star

I live for you, I dream of you
I sing for you
Shy dying star

  2. Finally you give me a reason to play Rhapsody on my radio show about Tolkien’s works🙂 (and yeah, I’m with you on the name changes, the split just means we’ll get two great bands and double the music!)

    • Ondo gave you indeed! He’s always raising or bringing new things to my mind and they are always good! I am thankful to him in so many ways!

  3. Wow, what an excellent post!!!! Translating metal songs, wish I can do that someday!! By the way, the image you have at the top is of Luca’s Rhapsody, not Rhapsody of Fire!

    • To me it’s all Rhapsody! I just chose that for the style it brings as a header. Also, I’m from the 90s’ and I can’t stand the change of name. It’ll always be RHAPSODY! Not of fire, of ice, of bubble-gum, not Turilli’s. It’s just good old Rhapsody!🙂
