Ch'io mai vi possa

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ch'io mai vi possa 
Lasciar d'amare,
[No, nol]1 credete, 
Pupille care;
Nè men per gioco 
V'ingannerò.

Voi foste e siete 
Le mie faville,
E voi sarete, 
Care pupille,
Il mio bel foco 
Sin ch'io vivrò.

That I will ever be able

Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)

That I will ever be able 
to stop loving you
No, don't believe it, 
dear eyes!  
Not even to joke 
would I deceive you about this.

You alone 
are my sparks, 
and you will be, 
dear eyes, 
my beautiful fire 
as long as I live, ah!
