ARIA FROM 'SALAMMBO' ('Citizen Kane') Music: Bernard Herrmann - Lyrics: John Houseman Jean Forward, Kiri Te Kanawa, Eileen Farrell, others Ah, cruel. Tu m’as trop entendue. Les Dieux m’en sont témoins. Ces Dieux qui dans mon flanc Ont allumé le feu fatal A tout mon sang. J’ai langui. J’ai mouri dans les larmes. J’ai séché. J’ai désespéré dans les feux de tes charmes. O quelle angoisse tes yeux Ont donné à toute mon âme. Ah, cruel! Dîtes-moi comment que j’éxpie Ce peché si fort. Toujours remplie, Je ne peux pas résister encore. O Dieux, arrachez-moi! Ce feu fatal Allume ma mort! Voilà mon coeur! Voilà mon coeur! C’est là que ta main doit frapper. Voilà mon coeur! Frappe! Prête-moi ton épée! Frappe! (Ah, cruel one. You understood me too well. The gods bear witness to me. These gods, who in my side Kindled the flame that is fatal To all my blood. I languished. I died amid tears. I withered. I despaired before the fires of your charms. Oh, such anguish your eyes Inflicted upon my entire soul. Ah, cruel one! Tell me how I may expiate A sin so profound, Always renewed. I can resist no longer. Oh, Gods, deliver me! This fatal flame Illumines my death! Behold my heart! Behold my heart! Here is where your hand must strike. Behold my heart! Strike! Ready your sword! Strike!)
