“Vivi, tiranno” lyrics
Vivi, tiranno,
io t’ho scampato;
svenami, ingrato,
sfoga il furor!
Volli salvarti
sol per mostrarti
ch’ho di mia sorte
più grande il cor.

Live you tyrant,
I rescued you;
Cut my veins, ingrate,
unleash your rage!
I wanted to save you
only to show you
that my heart is bigger
than my fate.
