Ti lascio, anima mia

Language: Italian

Ti lascio anima mia, giunta è quell'ora
L'ora, oimè, che mi chiama a la partita!
Io parto, io parto, oimè, convien ch'io mora
Percha convien nartir da te, mia vita.

Ah, pur troppo e 'l dolor ch'entro m'accora.
Non mi dar col tuo duol nova ferita.
Deh! non languir cor mio, ch'al mio partire
Mi duol il tuo dolor più che'l morire.

Deh! perché tante lagrime, o mio core
Da que' begl'occhi tuoi piover vegg'io?
Deh! frena il pianto, oime, frena il dolore,
Che spargi nel tuo pianto il sangue mio.
Temi forse cor mio che novo ardore
Il tuo amore, il mio ardor ponga in oblio?
Ah no, no! sarà spento in ogni loco
Da quest'onda di pianto ogn'altro foco.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995.
