Vedi quanto t'adoro ancora, ingrato
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Vedi quanto [t']1adoro ancora, ingrato.
Con [un tuo]2 sguardo solo
Mi togli ogni difesa, e mi disarmi.
Ed hai cor di tradirmi? e puoi lasciarmi?
Ah! non lasciarmi, no,
Bell' idol mio:
Di chi mi fiderò,
Se tu m'inganni?
Di vita mancherei
Nel dirti addio;
Chè viver non potrei
Fra tanti affanni.
