Watch videos with other singers performing Anne! Here!:
TOM Return to your home, forget in your senses what, senseless, you pursue.
ANNE Do you return?
ANNE Then how shall I go?
TOM You must!
Oh wilful powers, pummel to dust and drive into the void one thought: return!.
ANNE (Aside) Assist me, heaven, since love I must to calm his raging heart, his eyes that burn.
TOM Listen to me, for I know London well. Here virtue is a day coquette, for what night hides, it can forget. And virtue is, till gallants talk, and tell!. Oh Anne! That is the air we breathe. Go home! 'Tis wisdom here to be afraid.
ANNE How should I fear, who have your aid and all my love for you beside, dear Tom.
TOM My aid? My aid! London has done all that it can with me. Unworthy am l, less than weak. Go back!
ANNE Let worthiness. So you still love, reside in that.
