Lyrics

I smile, i cry, thinking of you
I endure at once chill and cold
Life is at once too soft and too hard
I have sore troubles mingled with joys

Suddenly I laugh and at the same time cry
And in pleasure many a grief endure
My happiness wanes and yet it lasts unchanged
All at once I dry up and grow green

I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I live, I die, I burn, I drown
for you

Thus I suffer love’s inconstancies
And when I think the pain is most intense
Without thinking, it is gone again.
Without thinking, it is gone again.

Then when I feel my joys certain
And my hour of greatest delight arrived
I find my pain beginning all over once again.

I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I live, I die, I burn, I drown
for you
