Vane le mie speranze?

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Vane le mie speranze?
Che più sentir si può da. bocca infida?
Infelice quel cor ch' in te si fida
che con voci inumane
mi dicesti, crudel: "Speranze vane!"
Lugubri rimembranze!
Vane le mie speranze!
Troppo vana speranza
prestar fede a colei ch'ad altri ha il guardo,
né val dirgli: "Crudel, sol per te ardo."
La speranza è fallace
e il tuo amor sempre fu meco mendace.
Lugubri rimembranze!
Vane le mie speranze!
Attendi a chi t'inganna,
che ti lascio per l'ultimo adio.
Scaccerà vecchio amor novo desio:
tu con voci inumane
mi dicesti, crudel: "Speranze vane!"
Lugubri rimembranze!
Vane le mie speranze!
