Artist: Michael Bolton

(L'elisir d'amore)(One tear that falls so furtively)

Una furtiva lagrima
Negli occhi suoi spunto:
Quelle festosee giovani
Invidiar sembro.
Che piu cercando io vo?
M'ama, lo vedo.
Un solo instante i palpiti
Del suo bel cor sentir!
I miei sospir, confondere
Per poco a' suoi sospir!
Cielo, si puo morir!
Di piu non chiedo.

Nemorino is in love with a wealthy girl, but she says she isn't interested in poor boys like him. Desperate, he buys a "Love potion" that only turns out to be cheap red wine. And yet, Nemorino believes the "Elixir" will work. When he sees her cry, he knows she has fallen for him at last.

One tear that falls so furtively
from her sweet eyes has just sprung,
as if she envied all the youths
who laughingly passed her right by.
What could I want more than this?
She loves me! I see it.
One moment just to hear her heart,
beating so close next to mine,
to hear my sighs like they were hers,
her sighings as if they were mine!
Heavens, please take me now:
All that I wanted is mine now!

It is a horrific thought to imagine Michael Bolton assraping this beautiful, tragic piece of music. Ahh.. Just an abomination.

I still need to know some definitions and usages of "furtive" in elegant English.

The last part of the lyrics is incomplete... if you try to sing/follow Pavarotti or anybody else

This version is more complete:

Una furtiva lagrima
Negli occhi suoi spuntò... quelle festose giovani invidiar sembrò...
Che più cercando io vo?
M'ama, lo vedo.
Un solo istante i palpiti
Del suo bel cor sentir!..
Co' suoi sospir confondere per poco i miei sospir!...
Cielo, si può morir;
Di più non chiedo.

I blessed him with a beautiful voice so please complete the lyrics. P.s-You were an accident...

You should hear Mary Fahl's version of this; magnificent. I agree w/whoever said M Bolton was a disaster for this masterpiece.
