Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ANNIO
Ah perdona al primo affetto
Questo accento sconsigliato;
Colpa fu del labbro usato
A cosi chiamarti ognor.

SERVILIA
Ah tu fosti il primo oggetto,
Che finor finor fedel' amai;
E tu l'ultimo sarai
Ch'abbia nido in questo cor.

ANNIO
Cari accenti del mio bene.

SERVILIA
Oh mia dolce, cara speme.

SERVILIA, ANNIO
Piu che ascolto i sensi tuoi,
in me cresce piu l'ardor.
Quando un'alma e all'altra unita,
Qual piacer un cor risente!
Ah si tranchi dalla vita
Tutto quel che non e amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

ANNIUS
Ah, forgive, my former love,
that thoughtless word;
it was the fault of lips
accustomed always to call you so.

SERVILIA
Ah, you were the first person
whom I ever truly loved;
and you will be the last
to be sheltered in my heart.

ANNIUS
Dear words of my beloved!

SERVILIA
O my sweet, dear hope!

SERVILIA and ANNIUS
The more I hear your words,
the greater grows my passion.
When one soul unites with another,
what joy a heart feels!
Ah, eliminate from life
all that is not love!
