English translation

No-one sleeps,
Even you, O Princess,
in your cold room,
Watch the stars
which tremble with love
and hope!

But my secret is locked within me,
no-one shall know my name!
No, no, I shall say it on your mouth
when the light breaks!

And my kiss will break the silence
that makes you mine!

(No-one shall know his name,
and we, alas, shall die!)

Vanish, o night!
Set, ye stars!
At dawn I shall win!

No matter how many times I hear this, I still get goosebumps.

I watched it and wept... big tears, more than I expected to. But of course, part of it is about my ex-husband and me listening to Pavarotti early in my marriage. Isn't it funny that those things can still make me cry?
