Vivo per Lei (which literally means I Live for Her in Italian) is one of the most famous songs recorded by Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli. Although it was originally performed as a duet with Giorgia Todrani in 1995, Bocelli later went on to record it with other well-known female artists including Marta Sánchez (Spanish – Vivo por ella), Hélène Ségara (French), Judy Weiss (German) and Sandy (Brazilian Portuguese).

The original song was written by the group O.R.O. but was later rewritten by Gatto Panceri for Bocelli and Todrani. In the original version, “lei” (she/her) refers to a woman, whereas in the rewritten version, it is a reference to “la musica” (music), which is a feminine noun in Italian.

Vivo Per Lei – Andrea Bocelli – Italian Lyrics

Vivo per lei da quando saiLa prima volta l’ho incontrataNon mi ricordo come maMi è entrata dentro e c’è restataVivo per lei perché mi faVibrare forte l’animaVivo per lei e non è un pesoVivo per lei anch’io lo saiE tu non esserne gelosoLei è di tutti quelli cheHanno un bisogno sempre accesoCome uno stereo in cameraDi chi è da solo e adesso saChe è anche per lui, per questoIo vivo per leiÈ una musa che ci invitaA sfiorarla con le ditaAttraverso un pianoforteLa morte è lontanaIo vivo per leiVivo per lei che spesso saEssere dolce e sensualeA volte picchia in testa maÈ un pugno che non fa mai maleVivo per lei, lo so mi faGirare di città in cittàSoffrire un po’, ma almeno io vivoÈ un dolore quando parteVivo per lei dentro gli hotelsCon piacere estremo cresceVivo per lei nel vorticeAttraverso la mia voceSi espande e amore produceVivo per lei, nient’altro hoE quanti altri incontreròChe come me hanno scritto in visoIo vivo per leiIo vivo per leiSopra un palco o contro un muroVivo per lei al limiteAnche in un domani duroVivo per lei al margineOgni giornoUna conquistaLa protagonistaSarà sempre leiVivo per lei perché oramaiIo non ho altra via d’uscitaPerché la musica, lo saiDavvero non l’ho mai traditaVivo per lei perché mi dàPause e note in libertàCi fosse un’altra vita la vivoLa vivo per leiVivo per lei la musicaIo vivo per leiVivo per lei è unicaIo vivo per leiIo vivo per leiIo vivoPer lei


Vivo Per Lei – Andrea Bocelli – English Translation

I’ve lived for her sinceThe first time I met her, you knowI don’t remember how butShe entered me and stayed thereI live for her becauseShe makes my spirit vibrate stronglyI live for her and it’s not a burden

I also live for her you knowAnd don’t be jealous of herShe belongs to all thoseWho have a constantly burning needLike a stereo in a roomOf anyone who is alone and now knowsThat she also belongs to him, this is whyI live for her

She is a muse who invites usTo brush her with our fingersWith a pianoDeath is far awayI live for her

I live for her, the one who often knowsHow to be sweet and sensualSometimes she beats down on me butIt’s a punch that never hurts

I live for her, I know she makes meTravel from town to town,Suffer a bit, but at least I’m alive

It’s painful when she leavesI live for her inside the hotelsWith extreme pleasure she growsI live for her in the vortexThrough my voiceShe expands and produces love

I live for her, I have nothing elseAnd when I meet othersWhose faces are written with the wordsI live for herI live for herOn a stage or against a wallI live for her on the edgeEven when tomorrow is toughI live for her on the edgeEvery dayA conquestThe protagonistWill always be her

I live for her because nowI have no other way outBecause music, you know,I’ve truly never betrayed her

I live for her because she gives meUnfiltered pauses and notesIf there were another life, I’d live itI’d live it for her

I live for her, the musicI live for herI live for her, she’s unparalleledI live for herI live for herI liveFor her
