Pupille amate, Cecilio's aria from Lucio Silla

Pupille amate		Beloved eyes,
Non lagrimate		Weep not,
Morir mi fate		Ye cause me to die
Pria di morir.		Before I am dead.
Quest' alma fida	This faithful soul
A voi d'intorno		Will return,
Farà ritorno		Hovering around you,
Sciolta in sospir.	Distilled into sighs.
