tranlsation help for beginner

Post by Q » Mon Jun 29, 2009 8:05 am

hi, I'm trying to learn italian at the moment and thought it would be fun to try to translate some of my favourite songs but I am stuck with:

a fear of flying,
of growing old,
a fear of slowly dying.

it's from an abba song.
i thought maybe:

una paura (un timore?) di volare,
de invecchiare (deglianziani?),
una paura (un tiamore?) di morire lentamente.

can anyone tell me if I am I close or way off the mark? How would you translate it?

Cheers,

Q.

Ciao :)

si, ci sei andato vicino in effetti, a mio avviso potrebbe essere così:

"paura di volare,
di invecchiare,
paura di morire lentamente"
