Irne lungi ancor dovrei, Zamoro's aria from Alzira

Irne lungi ancor dovrei
carco d'onta e fuggitivo?...
Separarmi da colei
onde sol respiro e vivo?...
Io guardai la morte in viso
la guardai con un sorriso!...
Ma spezzar mi sento il core!
Ma non reggo a tal pensier!...
Ah! Che debil rende amore
anche l'alma del guerrier!
