Italian.png Italian text

Io moro, ecco ch’io moro.
Bella nemica mia,
t’offes’ assai,
levar tropp’ alto i miei pensieri osai,
perdon ti chieggio in pegno,
bramo di pace un segno.
In quest’ estrema mia dura partita
non vò senza il tùo bacio
uscir di vita.

German.png German translation

Ich sterbe, siehe, nun sterb ich.
Dir, süße Feindin mein, Zornworte sagt ich,
zu hoch mein Wünschen zu erheben wagt ich,
Vergebung vergönn mir! Ein Zeichen
wollst mir des Friedens reichen.
Mein Los will qualvoll sein,
scheid ich vom Leben,
laß mich einmal dich küssen
und so entschweben.
