‘Tell me what love is’ | The Marriage of Figaro (Heather Lowe)


Tell me what love is; what can it be? What is this yearning burning in me? What is this yearning burning in me? Can I survive it, will I endure? This is my sickness; is there a cure? First this obsession seizing my brain, starting in passion, ending in pain; I start to shiver, then I’m on fire, then I’m a-quiver with seething desire. Who knows the secret, who holds the key? I long for something, what can it be? My brain is reeling, I wonder why; and then the feeling I’m going to die. By day it haunts me, haunts me by night, this tender torment tinged with delight. Tell me what love is; what can it be? What is this yearning burning in me? What is this yearning burning in me? What is this yearning burning in me?
