Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Fuggirò tanto Amore,
Che scemerà l'ardore,
Le fiamm' e le catene,
Che tengono quest'alma in tante pene.

Fuggirò tanto, tanto,
Che cesserà il mio pianto,
Il nodo, l’arco, e ’l strale,
Che tien quest’alma in doglia aspra e mortale.

Fuggirò il forte laccio,
Et uscirò d’impaccio,
Né di fuggir mi pento,
E scemar quest’ardor che nel cor sento.

Fuggirò dunque Amore,
Sciolto dal fiero ardore,
E dirò nel fuggire:
"Donna tu sei cagion del mio martire"

English.png English translation

I will escape from so much Love,
That the passion will diminish,
The flames and the chains,
That hold this soul in so much pain.

I will escape so much,
That my weeping will cease,
The knot, the bow, the arrow,
That keeps this soul in sore and deadly pain.

I will escape the strong lace,
And I will set me free,
Not my escape I repent,
Nor diminishing the passion I feel in my heart.

I will escape therefore my Love,
Free from the fierce passion,
And I will say by escaping:
"Woman, you are the cause of my martyrdom"
