M'odi, ah m'odi, Lucrezia's aria from Lucrezia Borgia

M'odi, ah m'odi ... io non t'imploro
Per voler serbarmi in vita!
Mille volte al giorno io moro,
Mille volte in cor ferita ...
Per te prego ... ah! teco almeno
Ah! non voler incrudelir.
Bevi ... bevi ... il rio veleno
Ah! t'affretta, deh! t'affretta a prevenir.
Il tempo vola.
Deh! cedi, cedi,
Deh! t'affretta il veleno a prevenir ...
