Will this song ever get any less emotional?!

In an interview with an Italian media outlet, Vin Diesel said he loves to sing but really doesn't have the voice for it. But that didn't stop him from singing Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's tribute song to the late Paul Walker, "See You Again", from the Furious 7 soundtrack. If you haven't heard it yet (by now you really should have it on repeat), here are some sample lyrics to get the tears flowing:

"It's been a long day without you, my friend / And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again / We've come a long way from where we began / Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again," Puth sings in the hook.

Dominic Toretto AKA Diesel sang those lyrics during his interview, and while he's right—he doesn't have the best voice—we still can't help but get emotional hearing Walker's best friend sing the tribute song. The rugged 47-year-old kept it light, however, by joking, "Now I've completely embarrassed myself in front of all of my Italian familia!"

We can't blame him for not being able to hit that high note, though.

But it quickly turned emotional when the interviewer asked if it was difficult for the action star to go back to work after losing his best friend. "Oh my God, it was the hardest thing I had to do. I felt like it was almost unfair asking us to go back to work."

"When I act, I pull from the inside but when my inside is hurting or in pain—how do you do that?" he added. "I didn't know a human could produce so many tears. I remember feeling self-conscious about it...If it wasn't for the great team—that I call family—if it wasn't for the obligation in honoring Paul...that is what drove us to the finish line."

Reaching the finish line has been well worth it for the cast of Furious 7, as the movie pulled in a record-breaking $384 million during its opening weekend, something that Ludacris dubbed "The Paul Walker Effect."

"We actually got a chance to surprise some theaters and talk to some people this weekend, and it's been amazing," he told E! News. "I am so blessed to be a part of it and people keep congratulating me, but there are so many elements that made this number one and I am just a part of it."

He added, "It's such an overwhelming feeling to be apart of something so great."
