English lyrics:
I will breath
the smell of the barns
and peace for those who will be
and for the bakers
I will be rain
and rain you will be
my eyes will see clearer
and the snowfields will blossom.
Learning how to walk
to walk together hand in hand
On Sunday.

I will wait to the opening of the winemakers
I will look bigger for you
and you will be bigger
new distances
will make us closer
and from the top of the sky, Diamante,
our eyes will see.

Going along within, soldiers and brides
dancing together slowly in back light
multiplying our voices
hand in hand, soldiers and brides.
On Sunday, On Sunday

Be careful, big kids do not cry
Be careful, big kids do not cry
Be careful, big kids do not cry

Going along within, soldiers and brides
dancing together slowly in back light
multiplying our voices
hand in hand, soldiers and brides.
On Sunday, On Sunday

"Delmo, Delmo come home..."

Note the line: "soldiers and wives" as men in those times used to go for wedding in their uniforms as it was the only smart dress they could wear..
The song ends with the sadness of his grandfather (Adelmo), who tell himself he must be strong, as " big kids do not cry", and the voice of his grandmother calling him to come back from the war and start again together in Emilian dialect: "Delmo, Delmo, vin'a cà... "
