Composition Info:LYRICS:
Ella giammai m’amò!
No, quel cor chiuso è a me,
amor per me non ha!
Io la rivedo ancor
contemplar triste in volto
il mio crin bianco il dì
che qui di Francia venne.
No, amor per me non ha,

Dove son?…Quei doppier
presso a finir!… L’ aurora imbianca
il mio veron!
Già spunta il dì! passar veggo
i miei giorni lenti!
Il sonno, o Dio! sparì
dai miei occhi languenti!
Dormirò sol nel manto mio regal
quando la mia giornata
è giunta a sera,
dormirò sol sotto la vôlta nera,
là, nell’ avello dell’ Escurial.
Se il serto regal a me
desse il poter
di leggere nei cor,
che Dio può sol veder!…
Se dorme il prence,
veglia il traditore;
il serto perde il re,
il consorte l’ onore!

TRANSLATION:
She never loved me!
No, her heart is closed to me,
she doesn’t love me!
I still recall
how sad she looked
when she saw my white hair
the day she arrived from France.
No, she does not love me,

Where am I? Those candles
about to die! Dawn whitens
my balcony!
The day has begun! I see
my days slowly draw out!
Sleep, oh God! vanished
from my languishing eyes!
I will sleep alone, wrapped up in my regal mantle
when my day
has come to an end,
I will sleep alone under the dark vault
there, in the tomb in the Escurial.
If the royal crown
could give me the power
to read into the hearts
that only God can see!
If the Prince sleeps,
the traitor is awake;
the King loses the crown
and the husband his honour!
