Tu se' morta, mia vita, ed io respiro?
Tu se' da me partita
Per mai più non tornare, ed io rimango?
No, che se i versi alcuna cosa ponno,
N'andrò sicuro a' più profondi abissi;
E intenerito il cor del Re dell'ombre,
Meco trarrotti a riveder le stelle,
Oh, se ciò negherammi empio destino,
Rimarrò teco in compagnia di morte.
Addio terra, addio cielo e sole, addio.

English Libretto or Translation:

You are dead, my life, and I still breathe?
You have gone from me,
never more to return, and I remain?
No, for if my songs have any power at all
I will surely descend to the deepest abyss and,
having softened the heart of the King of Shadows,
will bring you back with me to see the stars again.
Oh, if malign destiny denies me this,
I will remain with you in the company of death.
Farewell, earth! Farewell, sky, and sun, farewell!
