What Is This?

It is a translation of a foreign language version of a song you know. Can you guess the original?

The sun is about to set
The children run and play
Smiling faces
And I am here
This is how it is with my tears

With the wealth
To buy what I want
Except simple joy
So I am here
This is how it is with my tears

    1. Dale wins the cigar! I have back-translated the Italian version into English. What I found weird was that the Italian lyrics don't seem like a translation to me at all, but more a "based upon" new song.
