Mina's Il Cielo In Una Stanza

The touch of heaven in a cafe

When you're here with me
Everything becomes otherworldly
This little cafe
No longer has walls
But endless vistas
Of mountains and green trees
Even the roof is gone
I see the sky full of stars
Shining on us
In an abandonment of togetherness
Musicians in the street
Are playing like an orchestra
For you and me
And there's still the sky
Stretching away
Forever and a day
