Eri già tutta mia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Eri già tutta mia,
Mia quel' alma e quel core,
Chi da me ti desvia:
Novo laccio d'amore?
O bellezz' o valore,
O mirabil constanza,
Ove sei tu?
Eri già tutta mia;
Hor non sei più.
Ah, che mia non sei più.

Sol per me gl'occhi belli
Rivolgevi ridenti,
Per me d'oro i capelli 
Si spiegavan a i venti.
O fugaci contenti,
O fermezza d'un core,
Ove sei tu?
Eri già tutta mia;
Hor non sei più.
Ah, che mia non sei più.

Il gioir nel mio viso:
Ah che più non rimiri.
Il mio canto, il mio riso
È converso in martiri.
O dispersi sospiri,
O sparita pietate,
Ove sei tu?
Eri già tutta mia;
Hor non sei più.
Ah, che mia non sei più.

Un jour tu étais toute mienne

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Un jour tu étais toute mienne,
À moi étaient ton âme et ton cœur,
Qui t'as détournée de moi :
Le piège d'un nouvel amour ?
Ô beauté, ô valeur,
Ô constance admirable,
Où êtes-vous ?
Un jour tu étais toute mienne ;
Mais tu ne l'es plus,
Ah, tu n'es plus mienne.

Vers moi seul ces beaux yeux
Se tournaient en riant,
Pour moi, ces cheveux d'or
Se détachaient aux vents.
Ô bonheur fugace,
ô fermeté du cœur,
Où êtes-vous ?
Un jour tu étais toute mienne ;
Mais tu ne l'es plus,
Ah, tu n'es plus mienne.

Le plaisir sur mon visage :
Ah, on ne le voit plus.
Mon chant, mon rire
Sont changés en martyre.
Ô soupirs dispersés,
Ô pitié disparue,
Où êtes-vous ?
Un jour tu étais toute mienne ;
Mais tu ne l'es plus,
Ah, tu n'es plus mienne.
