"Sogno di Volare" (Eng. "The Dream of Flight") is the official musical theme of Sid Meier's Civilization VI. It was composed by Christopher Tin, composer of the Grammy-winning "Baba Yetu" (the main theme of Civilization IV), and plays on the game's main menu.

Lyrics[]

Original (Italian) lyrics English translation
Una volta che avrai

Spiccato il volo, deciderai

Sguardo verso il ciel saprai:

Lì a casa il cuore sentirai.

Una volta che avrai

Spiccato il volo, deciderai

Sguardo verso il ciel saprai:

Lì a casa il cuore sentirai.

Prenderà il primo volo

Verso il sole il grande uccello

Sorvolando il grande Monte Ceceri

Riempendo l'universo di stupore e gloria.

Una volta che avrai spiccato il volo,

Allora deciderai

Sguardo verso il ciel saprai:

Lì a casa il cuore sentirai.

L'uomo verrà portato dalla sua creazione

Come gli uccelli, verso il cielo...

Riempendo l'universo di stupore e gloria.

Una volta che avrai

Spiccato il volo, deciderai

Sguardo verso il ciel saprai:

Lì a casa il cuore sentirai.

Gloria! (x2)

Once you have taken flight,

You'll decide,

Gaze towards the sky, you'll know that

That is where your heart will feel at home.

Once you have taken flight,

You'll decide,

Gaze towards the sky, you'll know that

That is where your heart will feel at home.

The great bird

Will take his first flight toward the sun,

Sweeping over the great Mount Ceceri,

Filling the universe with wonder and glory.

Once you have taken flight,

You'll decide,

Gaze towards the sky, you'll know that

That is where your heart will feel at home.

Man will be lifted by his own creation,

Just like birds, towards the sky...

Filling the universe with wonder and glory.

Once you have taken flight,

You'll decide,

Gaze towards the sky, you'll know that

That is where your heart will feel at home.

Glory! (x2)
