To you my heart cries out \"Perfidia,\"
For I found you, the love of my life,
In somebody else\'s arms
Your eyes are echoing \"Perfidia,\"
Forgetful of our promise of love,
You\'re sharing another\'s charms
With a sad lament, my dreams
Have faded like a broken melody;
While the gods of love look down and laugh
At what romantic fools we mortals be
And now I know my love was not for you
And so I\'ll take it back with a sigh,
Perfidious one, good-bye.
