English original text

Leave, alas, this tormenting and strange anguish,
Or kill my hart oppressed,
Alas, it skill not!
For thus I will not,
Now contented
Then tormented,
Live in love and languish.

Leave, alas, this tormenting and strange anguish,
Or kill my heart oppressed,
Alas, it skill not!
For thus I will not,
Now contented
Then tormented,
Live in love and languish.

Italian.png Italian translation

Lascia, ahimè, questa tormentosa e insolita angoscia,
o uccidi il mio cuore oppresso,
ahimè, lui non è preparato!
Perché così non farò,
ora contento
poi tormentato,
di vivere nell'amore e languire.
