THE LAST DANCE
DER LETZTE TANZ
 
Elisabeth:
 
And you are?
 
Touto:
 
Don't you remember?
 
Elisabeth:
 
No, I have the feeling I've
met you somewhere before but...
 
The Last Dance
 
Touto:
 
You are spinning your love
But all is not well with the Emperor
You chose him
To escape from me
 
You two make a show of your love
But while in the arms of the emperor
You're also gently turning
Your smile to me
 
(Elisabeth: That's a lie!)
 
Touto:
 
The last dance belongs to me
Your dance with me is destiny
 
The Hapsburgs are decaying away
The guests in this hall are
No longer breathing
I simmer as I wait
For your and my duet
 
The last dance belongs to me
Your dance with me is destiny
 
Now I'm staring from the darkness
But the last win will be mine
 
The last dance belongs to me
Your dance with me is destiny
 
The last dance belongs to me
Your dance with me is destiny
 
(Background singer:
 
Now I'm staring from the darkness
But the last win will be mine
 
Now I'm staring from the darkness
But the last win will be)
 
Touto:
 
Mine!
