Adieu, notre petite table Lyrics

from Act II of the French opera Manon by Jules Massenet

Adieu, notre petite table

Allons!... il le faut!
Pour lui-meme!
Mon pauvre chevalier!
Oh! Oui, c'est lui que j'aime!
Et pourtant, j'hesite aujourd'hui!
Non! non! je ne suis plus digne de lui!
J'entends cette voix qui m'entraîne
Contre ma volonte:
"Manon, tu seras reine,
"Reine par la beaute!"
Je ne suis que faiblesse et que fragilite!
Ah! malgre moi je sens couler mes larmes.

Devant ces reves effaces!
L'avenir aura-t-il les charmes
De ces beaux jours déjà passes?

Adieu, notre petite table
Qui, nous reunit si souvent!
Adieu, notre petite table,
Si grande pour nous cependant!
On tient, c'est inimaginable,
Si peu de place... en se serrant...
Adieu, notre petite table!
Un meme verre était le notre,
Chacun de nous, quand il buvait,
Y cherchait les levres de l'autre...
Ah! Pauvre ami, comme il m'aimait!
Adieu... notre petite table.

Manon's aria from Manon

Let's go...it is necessary!
For his sake!
My poor knight!
Oh, yes, it's him that I love!
And yet, I hesitate today!
No! No! I am no longer worthy of him!
I hear that voice that captivates me
Against my will :
"Manon, you will be queen,
Queen by your beauty!"
I am nothing but weakness and fragility!
Ah! in spite of myself, I feel the flowing
of my tears.
Before these obliterated dreams!
Will the future have the charms
Of those beautiful days already passed?

Goodbye, our little table
At which we met so often!
Goodbye, our little table
Yet so large for us!
One thinks that it's unimaginable,
So small a space...when we're embracing...
Goodbye, our little table!
The same glass was ours,
Each of us, when it was drunk from,
There searched one set of lips for the other...
Ah! Poor friend that loved me!
Goodbye...our little table.
