Lasso vita mia, mi fa morire,
Crudel amor mio cor consume,
Da mille ferite, che mi fa morir.
Ahi me, deh, che non mi fa morire.
Crudel amor mi fa sofrir mille martire.

English.png English translation

O my unhappy Life, you are making me die.
Cruel love consumes my heart,
Inflicts a thousand wounds, which kill me.
Woe, alas, do not let me die,
Cruel Love makes me suffer a thousand martyrdoms.
