Italian
Una furtiva lagrima
Negli occhi suoi spunto:
Quelle festose giovani
Invidiar sembro.
Che piu cercando io vo?
Che piu cercando io vo? *

M'ama! Si, m'ama, lo vedo, lo vedo.
Un solo instante i palpiti
Del suo bel cor sentir!
I miei sospir, confondere
Per poco a' suoi sospir!
I palpiti, i palpiti sentir,
Confondere i miei coi suoi sospir
Cielo, si puo morir!
Di piu non chiedo, non chiedo.
Ah! Cielo, si puo, si puo morir,
Di piu non chiedo, non chiedo.
Si puo morir, si puo morir d'amor.
Translation
One furtive tear
in her eyes appeared:
the festive youths
it seemed to envy.
What more could I possibly want?
What more could I possibly want?

She loves me! Yes, she loves me, I see it. I see it.
Just for an instant to hear
the beats of her heart!
To almost confuse my sighs
with those of her!
The beats, the beats of her heart to hear,
to confuse my sighs with hers...
Heavens! Yes, I could die!
I ask for nothing more, nothing.
Oh, heavens! Yes, I could, I could die!
I ask for nothing more, nothing.
Yes, I could die! Yes, I could die of love.
* In Edvin's version it is until that brake, then i don't know what is singing here...
