Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Scarpia, ritto presso la porta, ascolta Spoletta allontanarsi, poi trasformato nel viso e nei gesti si avvicina con grande passione a Tosca.

SCARPIA
Io tenni la promessa...

TOSCA
arrestandolo
Non ancora.
Voglio un salvacondotto onde fuggir
dallo Stato con lui.

SCARPIA
con galanteria
Partir dunque volete?

TOSCA
con accento convinto
Sì, per sempre!

English Libretto or Translation:

Exit Spoletta, Scarpia, near the door, listens to his retreating footsteps, and then his whole behaviour changing, advances towards Tosca flushed with passion.

SCARPIA
I have kept my promise.

TOSCA
stopping him
Not yet.
I want a safe conduct, so that he and I
Can flee the State together.

SCARPIA
gallantly
You want to leave?

TOSCA
Yes, for ever.
