Available translation(s): FRE
Ah! dolente partita!
ah, fin de la mia vita!
da te parto e non moro? E pur i' provo
la pena de la morte
e sento nel partire
un vivace morire,
che dà vita al dolore
per far che moia immortalmente il core.

Ah ! départ douloureux !
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Ah ! départ douloureux !
ah ! fin de ma vie !
je te quitte et je ne meurs pas ? et cependant j'éprouve
la douleur de la mort.
Je sens dans ce partir
un vivace mourir,
qui donne vie à la douleur
pour faire qu'immortellement meure le cœur.
