Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SILVIO
E parti domattina?
amorosamente, cercando ammaliarla
E allor perché, di', tu m'hai stregato
se vuoi lasciarmi senza pietà?!
Quel bacio tuo perché me l'hai dato
fra spasmi ardenti di voluttà?!
Se tu scordasti l'ore fugaci,
io non lo posso, e voglio ancor,
que' spasmi ardenti, que' caldi baci,
che tanta febbre m'han messo in cor!

NEDDA
vinta e smarrita
Nulla scordai... sconvolta e turbata
m'ha questo amor che ne'l guardo ti villa!
Viver voglio a te avvinta, affascinata,
una vita d'amor calma e tranquilla!
A te mi dono; su me solo impera.
Ed io ti prendo e m'abbandono intera!

Tutto scordiam!
Negli occhi mi guarda!
Baciami, baciami!
Tutto scordiamo!

SILVIO
Tutto scordiam!
Ti guardo, ti bacio!
stringendola fra le braccia
Verrai?

NEDDA
Si... Baciami!
Si, mi guarda e mi bacia!
T'amo, t'amo.

SILVIO
Si, ti guardo e ti bacio!
T'amo, t'amo.

English Libretto or Translation:

SILVIO
Let's flee!

NEDDA
Don't tempt me … have pity on me!

SILVIO
Ay! Come on!
Ah! Fly with me.
No, you no longer love me!

NEDDA
What!

Tonio appears at the back, on the left

TONIO
having seen him, to himself
I've caught you, you strumpet!

He hurries off by the path, threatening.

NEDDA
Yes, I love you, I do!

SILVIO
lovingly trying to persuade her
Yet you leave tomorrow morning? …
Then tell me why you have bewitched me
if now without pity you wish to leave me?
Why did you give me those kisses
in that burning ecstasy of pleasure?
Even if you forget those fleeting hours,
I cannot, and I still want
that burning ecstasy, those ardent kisses
which filled my heart with such fever!

NEDDA
I have forgotten nothing;
this love that shines in your eyes
has thrown me into confusion.
I want to live close by your side,
in the spell of a life of calm
and peaceful love.
I give myself to you:
You alone shall rule me, and I take you
and yield myself completely
Let us forget everything!

SILVIO
Let us forget everything!

NEDDA
Look into my eyes!
Kiss me! Let us forget everything!

SILVIO
I look at you, and kiss you.
Let us forget everything!
