Song Info & Lyrics

Time To Say Goodbye (Con te partirò)

written by L. Quarantotto, F. Sartori, F. Peterson

Originally sung just by Andrea Bocelli – the story goes that Ms Brightman was so enchanted when she heard the solo version in a restaurant that she asked staff about it. She had been asked to find a song to sing at the retirement fight of the German world light-heavyweight champion, Henry Maske, and felt “Con Te Partiro” was perfect, and the rest is history. Since their duet singing Time To Say Goodbye -Andrea Bocelli has become an international singing star and The song made history in Germany becoming the biggest selling single of all time. This song has become a firm favourite at the end of Sarah’s concerts.

Covered by artists such as Katherine Jenkins, Amy Nuttall, Keedie, Blake, Hayley Westenra and many more too numerous to mention. Donna Summer recorded a dance remixed version called I Will Go with You (Con te partirò).

The song has been recorded by various artists in Italian (original) English, Spanish, German and Mandarin.

Time To Say Goodbye (Con te partirò)
with Andrea Bocelli
SB:
Quando sono solo
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
si lo so che non c’è luce
in una stanza quando manca il sole,
se non ci sei tu con me, con me.
Su le finestre
mostra a tutti il mio cuore
che hai accesso,
chiudi dentro me
la luce che
hai incontrato per strada.
Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso si li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
it’s time to say goodbye.

AB:
Quando sei lontana
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
e io si lo so
che sei con me con me,
tu mia luna tu sei qui con me,
mio sole tu sei qui, con me,
con me, con me, con me.
Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso sì li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,

SB&AB:
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò.
Io con te.

Sleep Tight

written by T. Schwarz, M. Meissner & S. Brightman

Sleep Tight is a rare non album song, and only appears as a bonus track on the 4 track Time To Say Goodbye Single and the much rarer and now deleted Taiwan Limited edition Box Set CD / double CD set of Time To Say Goodbye US Album – again deleted.  This song is a bonus track on some of the  versions of the 2018 album Hymn

We saw Fantasia in a far off land,
Cry for the living in the desert sand.
They waited underneath a splintered moon.
To hear the beating of an ancient tune.

Sleep tight. The reaper’s waiting in the wings.
Sleep tight. To reap a man of many things.
Sleep tight. Look through the eyes of destiny.
Sleep tight. We find the kingdom but He holds the key.

I met a seer who believes and dreams,
Our blood is running through eternal streams.
Dust you’ll return and dust you shall remain.
‘Coz that’s the only heart that beats and beats again.

Sleep tight. The reaper’s waiting in the wings.
Sleep tight. To reap a man of many things.
Sleep tight. Look through the eyes of destiny.
Sleep tight. We find the kingdom but He holds the key

Sleep tight. The reaper’s waiting in the wings.
Sleep tight. To reap a man of many things.
Sleep tight. Look through the eyes of destiny.
Sleep tight. We find the kingdom but He holds the key.
Sleep tight

You Take My Breath Away

written by Brightman & Peterson

This track was originally on the album Fly, and then as a bonus track on the 4 Track single Time To Say Goodbye. it also appeared as a bonus track on the album Harem where is fitted in far better there than anywhere else – as the song has a real Middle Eastern feel.

We saw the holy men
come in from Sanchi
We touched their souls
and heard Martyrs crying
Among the fields of red
we took the strange brew
The windless sky diwali
moon were calling to me
The deeper I go
the higher I fly with you
You … You take my breath away
Ooho you …
You take my breath away
Ooho you … (repeat several times…)
