Fra tutte le pene
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Fra tutte le pene v'è pena maggiore?
Son presso al mio bene, sospiro d'amore,
e dirgli non oso: sospiro per te.

Mi manca il valore per tanto soffrire,
mi manca l'ardire per chieder mercé.

Fra tutte le pene v'è pena maggiore?
Son presso al mio bene, sospiro d'amore,
e dirgli non oso: sospiro per te.

Parmi toutes les peines
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Parmi toutes les peines, y en a-t-il de plus grande ?
Je suis près de mon bien-aimé, je soupire d'amour,
et je n'ose lui dire : je soupire pour toi.

Il me manque le courage pour tant de souffrances,
il me maque l'audace de demander pitié.

Parmi toutes les peines, y en a-t-il de plus grande ?
Je suis près de mon bien-aimé, je soupire d'amour,
et je n'ose lui dire : je soupire pour toi.
