Se la mia morte brami

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Se la mia morte brami, 
crudel, lieto ne moro.
E dopo morte ancor te solo adoro.
Ma se vuoi che non t'ami, 
ahi, che a pensarlo solo
Il duol m'ancide 
e l'alma fugge a volo.

Wenn du meinen Tod begehrst

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wenn du meinen Tod begehrst,
Grausame, dann sterb’ ich freudig.
Und selbst nach dem Tode werde ich nur dich verehren.
Verwirfst du jedoch meine Liebe,
ach, schon wenn ich daran denke,
bringt der Schmerz mich um,
und meine Seele flieht im Fluge.
