E Lucevan le Stelle

E lucevan le stelle
ed olezzava la terra,
stridea l'uscio dell'orto,
e un passo sfiorava la rena...
Entrava ella, fragrante,
mi cadea fra le braccia...

O dolci baci, o languide carezze,
mentr'io fremente
le belle forme disciogliea dai veli!
Svani per sempre
il sogno mio d'amore...
L'ora รจ fuggita...
E muoio disperato!
E muoio disperato...
E non ho amato mai tanto la vita!
tanto la vita!

And the stars were shining,
and the earth smelled sweet,
the garden gate creaked,
and a step brushed the sand.
She came in, fragrant,
and fell into my arms.

Oh! sweet kisses, oh! languid caresses,
while I, trembling,
released her lovely features from their veils!
My dream of love has vanished forever.
The moment is gone,
and I die in despair!
and I die in despair!
And I never have loved life so much!
life so much!
