Because, well, just because he was a winner and did win

Il Maestro, Luciano Pavarotti

Nessun Dorma lyrics

Nessun dorma!
Nessun dorma!
Tu pure, o Principe,
Nella tua fredda stanza guardi le stelle,
Che tremano d’amore e di speranza!

Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,
Il nome mio nessun saprà!
No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dirò,
Quando la luce splenderà!

Ed il mio bacio scioglierà.
Il silenzio che ti fa mio!

[Choir:]
Il nome suo nessun saprà!
E noi dovrem ahimè morir, morir!

Dilegua o notte!
Tramontate, stelle!
Tramontate, stelle!
All’ alba vincerò!
Vincerò! Vincerò!

(From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/s/sarah-brightman-lyrics/nessun-dorma-lyrics.html)

[English translation:]

No man will sleep!
No man will sleep!
You too, oh Prince,
In your virginal room, watch the stars
Trembling with love and hope!

But my secret lies hidden within me,
No-one shall discover my name!
Oh no, I will reveal it only on your lips
When daylight shines forth!

And my kiss shall break
The silence that makes you mine!

Depart, oh night!
Set, you stars!
Set, you stars!
At dawn I shall win!
I shall win! I shall win!
