Testo e la solita storia - michael bolton

(from Cilea's L'Arlesiana)



[Federico loves a girl of ill repute
so his family arranges a marriage with a childhood sweetheart. The heart-broken lad compares his sad adventure to the well known tale of a shepherd boy. He knows he will never foreget his one true love.]



E la solita storia del pastore...

Il povero ragazzo voleva raccontarla

e s'addormi.

C'e nel sonno l'oblio.

Come l'invidio!

Anch'io vorrei dormir cosi


nel sonno almen l'oblio trovar!

La pace sol cercando io vo'.

Vorrei poter tutto scordar!

Ma ogni sforzo e vano.

Davanti ho sempre

di lei il dolce sembiante.

La pace tolta E solo a me.

Perche degg'io tanto penar?

Lei! sempre lei mi parla ancor!

Fatale vision
mi lascia!

Mi fai tanto male


Ahime!





[Translation:]



It's That Familiar Tale



It's that familiar tale you've heard of the shepherd...

That penniless young man
attempting to retell it


fell sound asleep.

In such slumber there's oblivion.

How I've envied him!

Like him
I would sleep all of my days-

at least if I slept
I might forget!

I seek only peace
it's all I need!

Forget it all
never recall!

Yet all is futile effort


before me will always be

that sweet face of hers
alas!

My peace and my quiet
forever gone!

Why must I suffer so
oh why?

She
always she
speaks again to me!

Vision so fatal
please vanish!

How you have harmed me!

Alas!
