Tonight was just a masquerade,
Tomorrow just another day,
Let come whatever, tonight or never,
I'll throw the mask away.
Beloved! With all my heart I love you,
With ev'ry breath I pray some day you will be mine;
Summer or spring,
Winter or fall,
You are my life, my love, my all;
Beloved! The very stars above you,
Are jealous of the way your eyes sparkle and shine;
Day after day,
Near or apart,
I try to say, be still my trembling heart.
But try though I may, I cannot hide
This passion inside, that won't be denied,
If this be madness, then, call it madness,
I only know I'll never rest 'til you are mine;
Beloved! Believe me when I tell you,
From now until the last bright star fades from the blue,
Now and forewer, whatever I do,
Beloved! I love you!
