Subject: Lyr Req: Perche Fuggi, Anima Mia (4th verse)

I've got this 15th century song--"Perche Fuggi, Anima Mia" by Paolo Bellasio--and a recording of someone singing four verses. However, I can only find the first *three* verses online anywhere. I don't understand Italian; I need someone Italianish to listen and tell me what they hear.

I've already be through my Facebook groups and Reddit subs trying to solve these problems. Nada.



from Joe: I found sheet music for $1.29 here, but only 3 verses:

There's a recording here, but I don't think it's 4 verses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3bc5QGZDBc

And another: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_cKWVVILvY

3-verse lyrics from here: http://www0.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Perch%C3%A8_fuggi,_anima_mia_(Paolo_Bellasio)

Perche Fuggi, Anima Mia

Italian text

Perchè fuggi, anima mia,
Da chi t'ama e ti desia?
La cagion saper vorrei
Che t'ascondi agli occhi miei.

S'io te seguo per amore,
Perchè darmi ognor dolore?
La cagion saper vorrei
Degli affanni e pianti miei.

Resta tanto che tu senti
Le mie doglie e i miei tormenti
Forse te ne pentirai
Di fuggirmi e darmi guai.

English translation

Why do you flee, my beloved,
From the man who loves and desires you?
Please tell me why
You hide yourself from my eyes.

If I pursue you for love,
Why do you constantly bring me sorrow?
Please tell me the reason
For my troubles and laments.

At least you listen
When I tell you of my pains and torments:
Maybe you will repent
Of fleeing me and wounding my heart.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank

From here, 4th verse:

Alla tua rara bellezza
non conviensi tanta asprezza;
dammi omai qualche ristoro
se non vedi ch'io ne moro.

So much harshness doesn't suit your rare beauty; now give me some comfort/relief if you can't see I'm dying.

The last line literally means "if you don't see that I die of it" that probably means "if you don't want me to die of it."
