Francesca & Paolo: Za mig odín, za mig prikosnovén'ya
ognyóm goryáscikh ust k ustám...
Vsya zhízn', ves' mir v odnóm mgnovén'ye...
Vsya vécnost' tam!...

Francesca: O svétlïy mig!

Paolo: O svétlïy mig!

Francesca: O mig blazhénnïy!

Paolo: O mig blazhénnïy!

Francesca: Zhelánnïy!...

Paolo: Rodnáya!...

Francesca: Tvoyá navsegdá!
Paolo: Vsyo, vsyo otdám!

Francesca & Paolo: V tebé blazhénstvo vécnoye!...


Francesca & Paolo: For one single moment, for a moment of the touch
of burning lips as they meet in fiery passion,
I would surrender all life, all the world
contained in one moment. All eternity is there!

Francesca: Oh, blissful moment!

Paolo: Oh, blissful moment!

Francesca: Oh, blessed moment!

Paolo: Oh, blessed moment!

Francesca: I am yours for ever!
Paolo: All, all will I surrender!

Francesca & Paolo: With you is eternal bliss!...
