Emilio Pericoli (1962), Ray Charles Singers
(1964) (Lyrics by Ervin Drake)
Al Di La you are far above me, Very far (very far),
Al Di La, as distant as the lovely evening star (very far)
Where you walk flowers bloom, When you smile ll the gloom turns to
And my heart opens wide; When you're gone it fades inside, and seems to
Al Di La, I wondered as I drifted, Where you were? (where you were?)
Al Di La, the fog around me lifted, There you were (there you were!)
In the kiss that I gave was the love I had saved for a lifetime.
Then I knew, all of you, was completely mine!
