Sarah Brightman – Nessum Dorma lyrics

Nessun dorma!
Nessun dorma!
Tu pure, o Principe,
Nella tua fredda stanza guardi le stelle,
Che tremano d'amore e di speranza!
Ma il mio mistero chiuso in me,
Il nome mio nessun sapr!
No, no, sulla tua bocca lo dir,
Quando la luce splender!
Ed il mio bacio scioglier.
Il silenzio che ti fa mio!
Il nome suo nessun sapr!
E noi dovrem ahim morir, morir!
Dilegua o notte!
Tramontate, stelle!
Tramontate, stelle!
All' alba vincer!
Vincer! Vincer!
No-one shall sleep
No-one shall sleep!
No-one shall sleep!
You too, oh Prince,
In your cold room, watch the stars
Trembling with love and hope!
But my secret lies hidden within me,
No-one shall discover my name!
Oh no, I will only reveal it on your lips
When daylight shines forth!
And my kiss shall break
The silence that makes you mine!
No-one shall discover her name!
And we will, alas, have to die, to die!
Depart, oh night!
Set, you stars!
Set, you stars!
At dawn I shall win!
I shall win! I shall win
