Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Liù
Principessa, l'amore!

Turandot
L'amore?

Liù
Tanto amore segreto e inconfessato, grande così
che questi strazi son dolcezze per me
perché ne faccio dono al mio Signore.
Perché, tacendo, io gli do, gli do il tuo amore…
Te gli do, Principessa, e perdo tutto!
Persino l'impossibile speranza!
Legatemi! Straziatemi!
Tormenti e spasimi date a me,
ah, come offerta suprema del mio amore!

English Libretto or Translation:

Liù
Princess, love!

Turandot
The love?

Liù
So much love secret and unconfessed, so great
that these strazi are sweetness for me
because I give it to my Lord.
Because, keeping silent, I give him, I give him your love ...
I give you, Princess, and I lose everything!
Even the impossible hope!
Tie me! Straziatemi!
Torments and spasms given to me,
ah, as the supreme offering of my love!
