A DUE: Null'uomo o demone, angelo mio, Mai più staccarti potrà da me. Parigi, o cara/o noi lasceremo, La vita uniti trascorreremo: De' corsi affanni compenso avrai, La mia/tua salute rifiorirà. Sospiro e luce tu mi sarai, Tutto il futuro ne arriderà.
VIOLETTA Ah, non più, a un tempio Alfredo, andiamo, Del tuo ritorno grazie rendiamo
English Libretto or Translation:
ALFREDO AND VIOLETTA Not man or devil, my angel, Shall ever part you from me again.
ALFREDO We'll leave Paris, my dearest, Together we'll go through life. In reward for your past sorrows, You'll bloom into health again. Breath of life, sunshine you'll be to me, All the years to come will smile on us.
VIOLETTA We'll leave Paris, my dearest, Together we'll go through life.
VIOLETTA In reward for past sorrows, I shall bloom into health again. Breath of life, sunshine you'll be to me, All the years to come will smile on us. Ah, no more! Let's go to church, Alfredo, And give thanks for your return.
