Fujiwara: Is this your love, this living lie!
This woman's trick of lip and eye!
A tale that's told,
A toy that's sold
To any man who cares to buy!
Hana: How frail and brittle love must be
To show so little faith in me!
Is this the love I deem'd so great?
Then take your love and give me hate!
Fujiwara: My faith is fled!
Hana: My hope has flown!
Fujiwara: My love is dead!
Hana: Not yours alone!
Both: The vows you swore
Have proved untrue,
For evermore, for evermore,
I've done with you, I've done with you!
Fujiwara: My heart is broken and my love betrayed!
Hana: A faithless love! a worthless heart!
Fujiwara: My name the play-thing of a singing maid!
Hana: In truth, you play a manly part!
You dare to hold my honour up to scorn!
You who have broken ev'ry vow!
Fujiwara: Fickle and worthless!
Faithless and forsworn!
Hana: Oh, how I hate you now!
Fujiwara: My faith is fled!
Hana: My hope has flown!
Fujiwara: My love is dead!
Hana: Not yours alone!
Both: The vows you swore
Have proved untrue,
For evermore, for evermore,
I've done with you, I've done with you!
Chorus: Fly for safety! Faster, faster!
Angry are the gods on high!
Do not wait to court disaster,
Fly for safety, fly!
The underworld
With thunder peals;
Asunder hurl'd
It rocks and reels!
The houses sway,
The ground gives way
Beneath our very heels!
Escape, escape,
Escape, escape,
While yet you may,
While yet you may!
