Testo e lucevan le stelle - michael bolton

(from Pucinni's Tosca)



[The painter Cavaradossi has been sentenced to death for helping to hide an escaped political prisoner. As he awaits his fate
he sings of the sweet memories of his beloved Tosca and his dashed dreams.]



E lucevan le stelle


e olezzava le terra

stridea l'uscio dell'orto

e un passo sfiorava la rena.

Entrava ella
fragrante


mi cadea fra le braccia.

Oh! dolci baci
o languide carezze


mentr'io fremente

le belle forme discogliea dai veli!

Svani per sempre il sogno mio d'amore...

L'ora e fuggita

e muoio disperato!

E non ho amato mai tanto la vita!





[Translation:]



How The Stars Seemed To Shimmer



How the stars seem to shimmer


the sweet scents of the garden


how the creaking gate whispered


and a footstep skimmed over the sand


how she then entered
so fragrant


and then fell into my two arms!

Ah sweetest of kiss
languorous caresses


While I stood trembling


searching her features concealed by her mantle.

My dreams of pure love
forgotten forever!

All of it's gone now!

I die hopeless
despairing


And never before have I loved like this!
