Longe da te, cor mio

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Longe da te, cor mio,
struggomi di dolore,
di dolcezz'e d'amore.
Ma torna omai, deh torna! E se'l destino
strugger vorrammi ancor a te vicino,
sfavilli e splenda il tuo bel lume amato
ch'io n'arda e mora, e morirò beato.

Loin de toi, mon cœur

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

Loin de toi, mon cœur,
je me consume de douleur,
de douceur et d'amour.
Mais retourne-toi maintenant, ah, retourne-toi ! Et si le destin
veut que je me consume encore à ton côté,
que ton beau regard aimé scintille et brille,
que je brûle et meure, et je mourrai heureux.
