Here is my Latin language version of "If." I sing and produced the background music using Garageband.
Here is my tutorial video on conditional sentences.
Here is the script of my translation:
Si pictura mille verborum pingit
Cur non possum te pingere?
Then why can't I paint you?
verba numquam monstrabunt
The words will never show
te quam cognovi.the you I've come to know.
si facies mille navium deduxit
If a face could launch a thousand ships
quo ire debeo?then where am I to go?
nemo praeter te domi est
There's no one home but you
et es sola quae mihi manet.
you're all that's left me too.
et ubi arescit amor meux vivendi
And when my love for life is running dry
venis et fundis te ipsam in me.you come and pour yourself on me.
si vir simul in duobus locis esse posset,
If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
cras et hodie
Tomorrow and today
iuxta te usque.beside you all the way.
si terra desinat revolvi,
If the world should stop revolving,
volvans lentius mori
spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
et ubi terra finiat
and when the world was through
exstinguantur singulatim omnes stellae
and one by one the stars would all go out
then you and I would simply fly away .
