Parla al mio cuore digli che sai 
Dei miei dolori che non dormon mai 
Parlami o stella 
E dimmi se lei verrà 
Notte d'agosto e dei desideri 
Cerco amore e vorrei che s'avveri 
Lei che sorride passando per la mia via 

Ah, com'è difficile spiegare 
Ma tu stella amica 
Dimmi se resterà  

Dell'amore non si sa 
Quando viene o se ne va 
Dell'amore non si sa 
Quando sarà 
Da dove arriverà 

Stella sorella dei sogni miei 
Parlami ancora fino a domani 
Dimmi se è vero 
Che lei esiste per davvero 

Ah, com'è difficile sperare 
Ma tu dimmi sempre e 
Solo la verità 

Dell'amore non si sa 
Quando viene o se ne va 
Dell'amore non si sa 
Ma quando amore arriverà 
Tutto intorno cambierà 
Nella notte brillerà 

Tutto cambierà
Tutto rivivrà con te
