Lyrics of Pe-o Margine De Lume

Vino Pe-o margine de lume Ca pe o banca goala Sa stam Cerul Sub talpi ni s-ar intinde Si nici nu vom sti daca Visam Astazi, Mai mult ca niciodata Gandul meu te cheama Vino O noapte intreaga si-o zi Cu tine alaturi de-as fi As crede ca lumea-i a mea Si numai tie lumea ti-o voi da Vieni E stringimi la mano Io vengo da lontano Per te Guarda Il mondo che ho sognato Presente e passato Con te Astazi Mai mult ca niciodata Gandul meu te cheama Vino O noapte intreaga si-o zi Ti offro il mio cuore e lo sai Cu tine alaturi de-as fi Sono innamorata piu che mai As crede ca lumea-i a mea Ti voglio tanto bene Si numai tie lumea ti-o voi da La vita intera con te Il sogno piu bello che c'e Il nostro camino vedra La luce di un amore senza eta La luce di un amore senza eta Sa-mi spui ca vei ramane doar A mea
