Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

ALFREDO
Ah sì, da un anno.
Un dì, felice, eterea,
Mi balenaste innante,
E da quel dì tremante
Vissi d'ignoto amor.
Di quell'amor ch'è palpito
Dell'universo intero,
Misterioso, altero,
Croce e delizia al cor.

VIOLETTA
Ah, se ciò è ver, fuggitemi
Solo amistade io v'offro:
Amar non so, né soffro
Un così eroico amor.
Io sono franca, ingenua;
Altra cercar dovete;
Non arduo troverete
Dimenticarmi allor.

English Libretto or Translation:

ALFREDO
For more than a year.
One happy day
You flashed lightly into my life;
And since then I've lived
In tremulous possession
Of that unspoken love,
The pulse of the whole world,
Mysterious, unattainable,
The torment and delight of my heart.

VIOLETTA
If that is true, then leave me.
Friendship is all I can offer you.
I don't know how to love,
I couldn't feel so great an emotion.
I'm being honest with you ? sincere …
You should look for someone else,
Then you wouldn't find it hard
To forget me.
