Negramaro: L'Immenso

This week I've had a couple of Italian songs in my head - Ti ho voluto bene veramente by Marco Mengoni and L'Immenso by Negramaro. I have already posted about the first one (you can read about it here) but I haven't talked about the other yet.

Negramaro is a famous Italian band. I have never been a big fan and I don't know that much about them, but they have written a few songs that used to be on the radio or TV all the time and that I really like.

My favourite, and the only Negramaro song I used to have on my iPod, is called L'Immenso. It was released in 2007. I find the lyrics really deep and the combination of music and words quite powerful.

If I could rewind the world
I would certainly bring you back
For a deep, eternal moment
In which everything seems to be real but nothing really is
I would keep the world tightly in my pocket
And one day maybe give it back to you
To you, who are not part of the infinite
It's the infinite that is just a part of you

You can listen to the song (and watch the video) here.

I don't know exactly what the authors meant to say when they wrote this song, so my interpretation might be all wrong, but the video always made me think that they were dedicating it to someone they really cared about that had passed away. I find the lyrics full of love and, somehow, hope, instead of the typical desperation linked to this kind of events, and I really like this way of seeing things.

Had you ever heard this one before? What is your interpretation?
