ELISABETH
ELISABETH, MACH AUF MEIN ENGEL
 
Totou (Singing):
 
Elizabeth
Now is the time
I welcome you
To the world of the dead

 

Elisabeth (Spoken):
 
World of the dead?
Send me back!
 
THE ROUND OF LOVE AND DEATH
 
Totou:
 
That look in your eye
It burns in my breast
That look
Pierces me
 
Breathe and you
Capture me
You melt my frozen heart
 
Just a young girl
That's all you should be
Yet all of me is crumbling
 
Just one simple
Human being
Is making me shiver
 
Now I can't
Rob you of your life
I want the love
Of the living you
 
I'm stepping forward
To claim this forbidden love
This thought that
Has sprouted in my breast
It's cutting my body apart
 
My blood is pouring
And you are the only one
Who can heal the wound
 
If I send you back
To that life
Then at that time
You'll forget me
 
Until I win
Your love,
I will pursue
 
Wherever you go
I will follow you
The round of love and death
 
End of song proper. Scene ends with woman crying out "Sissi!"
