Aida:
I am here to tell you we can never meet again
Simple really, isn't it, a word or two and then
A lifetime of not knowing where or how or why or when
You think of me or speak of me
And wonder what befell that someone you once loved so long ago so well.

Radames:
Never wonder what I'll feel as living shuffles by
You don't have to ask me and I need not reply
Every moment of my life from now until I die
I will think or dream of you and fail to understand how a perfect love can be confounded out of hand.

Is it written in the stars
Are we paying for some crime
Is that all that we are good for
Just a stretch of mortal time
Or some god's experiment
In which we have no say
In which we're given paradise
But only for a day.

Aida:
(spoken) Marry the Princess, Radames. You can help my people. This could be our chance to do something important. Don't you see?
(sings) Nothing can be altered
There is nothing to decide
No escape, no change of heart
Nor any place to hide.

Radames:
Oh, you are all I ever want
But this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts
I wish I'd never learned
(Both sing) What it is to be in love and have that love returned.

Aida:
Is it written in the stars
Are we paying for some crime
Is that all that we are good for
Just some stretch of mortal time
Both: Or some god's experiment
In which we have no say
In which we're given paradise
But only for a day.
