Story behind the song
This song started with the flute riff, which came out one day while noodling with the guitar. Chords were added, and eventually the idea of doing it as a love song with lyrics partly in Italian. Acoustic guitar and mandolins were added as a way of keeping the arrangement from becoming too 'heavy' (brass and string parts were eventually rejected for this reason). The flute part is played by my daughter, age 11. I wanted to keep the song short and simple, without making it overly long or complicated. Even with drums, it feels very warm and open, while the acoustic solo is probably a first.
Lyrics
Mio Piccolo Fiore, Always on my mind Sempre pieno di amore Look and you will find If I give you my heart forever Will you give yours back to me? I want you like I want no other My dark-eyed lady Mio Piccolo Fiore, You know what you feel Guarda nel tuo cuore You know that it's real And now my heart belongs to you Don't break it with your smile Just kiss me like you always do I'm waiting all the while Mi gusto le tue labbra la guancia morbida Ricordo bene come il vino per me Mio Piccolo Fiore, Always on my mind Sempre pieno di amore Look and you will find If I give you my heart forever Will you give yours back to me? I want you like I want no other My dark-eyed lady
