Luna perfetta

luna perfetta
Ti sto chiamando
perfetta luna
ricoperta d’impuro
Mi avvicino
al tuo collo nudo
a piedi scalzi
abbaiando
luna perfetta

perfetta luna
Io sono con te
adoro
arrendermi
alle tue mani
immense
sono tua
luna perfetta

perfect moon
I am calling
perfect moon
clad impure
I approach
your naked neck
barefoot
baying
perfect moon

perfect moon
I am with you
perfect moon
I adore
surrendering
to thy great
hands
I am yours
perfect moon
