Luisa miller

Oh! Fede negar potessi agl'occhi miei!
Se cielo a terra, se mortali ad angeli
Attestarmi volesser ch'ella non è rea,
Mentite! Io responder dovrei, tutti mentite.
Son cifre sue!
Tanta perfidia! Un'alma sì nera! Si mendace! Ben la conobbe ii padre!
Ma dunque I giuri, le speranze, la gioia,
Le lagrime, l'affanno?
Tutto è menzogna, tradimento, inganno!

Quando le sere al placido
Chiaror d'un ciel stellato
Meco figgea nell'etere
Lo sguardo innamorato,
E questa mano stringermi
Dalla sua man sentia...
E questa mano stringermi
Dalla sua man sentia...

Ah! Ah! Ah! Mi tradia!
Ah! Mi tradia!
Allor, ch'io muto, estatico
Da' labbri suoi pendea,
Ed ella in suono angelico,
"amo, amo te sol" dicea,
Tal che sembrò 1'empireo
Aprirsi all'alma mia!
In suono angelico,
"amo te sol" dicea.

Ah! Ah! Ah! Mi tradia!
Ah! Mi tradia!
Ah! Mi tradia!
Mi tradia!
In suono angelico,
"T'amo" dicea.
Ah! Mi tradia!
