Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Se tu fuggi, io non resto
Ché'l cor ti segue e grida.
Ahi, cor crudele, ove impietà s'annida,
Dove ten vai? Deh, pria mi rendi il core,
E poi ten fuggi, e fugga teco amore.

English.png English translation

If you flee I shall not stay behind,
Because my heart will follow you and cry out.
Alas, cruel heart, devoid of pity,
Where are you going? I beg you, return my heart,
And then flee – and let love be gone with you.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
