Do you know Carmen?

 The opera of George Bizet starting from a short story of Prosper Mérimée: 

The tragic destiny of beautiful Carmen who allures Don José before giving up it for the Escamillo bullfighter...

Final Duet

It's you!

Yes, me!

I'd been warned
that you were about, that you might come here;
I was even told to fear for my life
but I'm no coward and had no intention of running away.

I'm not threatening, I'm imploring, beseeching;
our past, Carmen - I forget it!
Yes, together we are going
to begin another life,
far from here, under new skies!

You ask the impossible,
Carmen has never lied;
her mind is made up.
Between her and you everything's finished.
I have never lied;
all's over between us.


Carmen, there is still time,
yes, there is still time.
O my Carmen, let me
save you, you I adore,
and save myself with you!

No, I'm well aware that the hour has come,
I know that you are going to kill me;
but whether I live or die,
no, no, I shall not give in to you!

Carmen, there is still time,
O my Carmen, let me
save you, you whom I adore;
ah! let me save you
and save myself with you!
O my Carmen, there is still time, etc.

Why still concern yourself
with a heart that's no longer yours?
No, this heart no longer belongs to you!
In vain you say "I adore you",
you'll get nothing, no nothing, from me.
Ah! it's useless,
You'll get nothing, nothing, from me!

Then you don't love me any more?
Carmen is silent.
Then you don't love me any more?

No, I don't love you any more.

But 1, Carmen, I love you still;
Carmen, alas! I adore you!

What's the good of this? What waste of words!

Carmen, I love you, I adore you!
All right, if I must, to please you
I'll stay a bandit, anything you like -
anything, do you hear? Anything!
but do not leave me,
O my Carmen, ah! remember the past!
We loved each other once!
Ah! do not leave me, Carmen,
ah, do not leave me!

Carmen will never yield!
Free she was born and free she will die!
