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.

Si tu désires ma mort
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Si tu désires ma mort,
Cruelle, alors je mourais heureux.
Et même après la mort, seul, je t'adorerai.
Mais si tu ne veux pas que je t'aime,
Hélas, seulement à y penser
La douleur me tue
Et mon âme s'enfuit en volant.
