[CLARA]I'm so happy, I'm afraid I'll die Here in your arms
What would you do If I died Like this -
Right now, Here in your arms?
That we ever should have met Is a miracle
[GIORGIO]No, inevitable -
[CLARA]Then inevitable, yes, But I confess It was the look --
[CLARA]The sadness in your eyes That day When we glanced At each other in the park
[GIORGIO]We were both unhappy
[CLARA]Unhappiness can be seductive
[GIORGIO]You pitied me...
[BOTH]How quickly pity leads to love
[CLARA]All this happiness Merely from a glance In the park. So much happiness So much love --
[GIORGIO]I thought I knew what love was
[CLARA]I wish we might have met so much sooner I could have given you --
[GIORGIO]I thought I knew what love was
[CLARA]-- My youth
[GIORGIO]I thought I knew how much I could feel
[CLARA]All the time we lost...
[GIORGIO]I didn't know what love was.
[CLARA]I've never known what love was.
[GIORGIO]But now --
[CLARA]And now --
[BOTH]-- I do. It's what I feel with you. The happiness I feel with you.
[CLARA]So much happiness --
[GIORGIO]You are so beautiful...
[CLARA]-- Happiness by chance in a park.
[GIORGIO]Not by chance, By necessity --
[CLARA]Surely, this is happiness -
[GIORGIO]- by the sadness that we saw in each other.
[CLARA]- no one else has ever felt before!
[BOTH]Just another love story, That's what they would claim. Another simple love story - Aren't all of them the same?
[CLARA]No, but this is more, we feel more!
[BOTH]This is so much more! (Smiling at each other) Like every other love story.
Some say happiness comes and goes. then this happiness is a kind of happiness No one really knows.
[GIORGIO]I thought I knew what love was.
[CLARA]I'd only heard what love was.
[GIORGIO]I thought it was no more than a name for yearning.
[CLARA]I thought it was what kindness became.
[GIORGIO]I'm learning -
[CLARA]I thought where there was love there was shame.
[GIORGIO]- that with you -
[CLARA]But with you -
[BOTH]- there's just happiness.
[CLARA]Endless happiness ...
[GIORGIO][spoken] Not now ...
[CLARA][spoken] Tell me ... please.
[GIORGIO][spoken] I received my orders from headquarters. I've been transferred to the Fourth Brigade.
[GIORGIO][spoken] I leave in five days. Clara, don't look so sad.
[CLARA][spoken] You're the one that makes me happy.
[GIORGIO][spoken] We'll make the most of the next four days. I'll steal as much time as I can. Then after I leave, we'll write to each other ever day. We'll make love with our words. [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/happiness-lyrics-a.html ] You'll be with me ever day, Clara.
[CLARA][spoken] I must go. I'm expected.
[GIORGIO]God, you are so beautiful. I love to see you in the light, Clear and beautiful, memorize Every inch, every part of you to take with me.
[GIORGIO]Your feet so soft, As if they'd never touched the ground.
[CLARA][spoken] I must go ...
[GIORGIO]Your skin so white, so pure, so delicate. Your smell so sweet, your breathe so warm. I will summon you in my mind, I'm painting you indelibly on my mind.
[CLARA]Let me go ...
[GIORGIO]We must fill every moment.
[CLARA]All this happiness ended by a word in the dark.
[GIORGIO]Oh my love, oh my darling ...
[CLARA]So much happiness wasn't meant to last.
[GIORGIO]I am here, I am with you I am yours.
[CLARA]I never knew what love was.
[GIORGIO]Your skin, your silken hair ...
[CLARA]I always thought I didn't deserve it.
[GIORGIO]Your breasts, your lips ...
[CLARA]I didn't know what love was.
[GIORGIO]I want you every minute of my life ...
[CLARA]I don't know how I'll live when you're gone!
[GIORGIO]I will always be here.
[CLARA]I don't know how I'll live ... Giorgio ... Don't leave me ...
[COLONEL][spoken] Thank you Lieutenant.
[DOCTOR][spoken] How was "Rigoletto"?
[TORASSO][spoken] Terrible. These touring companies get no better.
[LOMBARDI][spoken] Nor do you.
[TORASSO][spoken] I sing to lighten the weight of your cooking.
[BARRI][(spoken) (examining his plate)] Sergeant, what is this?
[LOMBARDI][spoken] It's veal.
[BARRI][spoken] Again? We had veal four days ago. And from the looks of it, it was this veal.
[LOMBARDI][spoken] Lieutenant Barri, if I hear -
[RIZZOLLI][spoken] Colonel, I've heard a rumor that the King is about to sign a treaty with the French.
[COLONEL][spoken] I've heard no such rumor, Major.
[DOCTOR][spoken] Where did you come by this information?
[RIZZOLLI][spoken] In town.
[COLONEL][spoken] You can't believe everything you hear in a whorehouse.
[RIZZOLLI][spoken] That is where Garibaldi got much of his information, sir.
[DOCTOR][spoken] Ah, so that's why you go there!
[COLONEL][spoken] Ah, Captain Bachetti. Welcome. We wondered when you were going to arrive. May I introduce Doctor Tambourri, Major Rizzolli ...
[TORASSO][spoken] Lieutenant Torasso.
[BARRI][spoken] Lieutenant Barri.
[LOMBARDI][spoken] Sergeant LOMBARDI
[BARRI][spoken] Our cook.
[COLONEL][spoken] Come. Come and join us.
[GIORGIO][spoken] Could you post this one for me? [LOMBARDI][spoken] You'll have to excuse our rather limited menu, Captain. It's difficult to grow vegetables in this mountain soil.
[DOCTOR][spoken] We're a bit isolated here, Captain. Not only from anything green and edible, but also from life and ideas.
[RIZZOLLI][spoken] I just add vinegar to everything
[TORASSO][spoken] Captain Bachetti, the COLONEL has been telling us of your triumphs pinning down the Russian infantry.
[GIORGIO][spoken] I'm not sure that my actions worried your attention.
[TORASSO][spoken] Come, come. Didn't you rescue a wounded man in the midst of fire and then carry him on your horse to camp?
[GIORGIO][spoken] Only to our battalion.
[BARRI][spoken] Say you brought him back to camp! Why settle for being half a hero when full-fledged is just a white lie away?
