Se il mio nome – Il barbiere di Siviglia

If you long to know my name,
You will hear it from my very own lips.
I am Lindoro
Who faithfully adores you,
Who wishes to marry you,
to call you by name,
always speaking of you lovingly
from sunrise to sunset.
The loving and sincere Lindoro,
Who cannot give you, my dear, a treasure.
I am not rich,
But I give you my heart,
A loving soul
Constant and true
That yearns only for you
From sunrise to sunset.

Juan Diego Florez sings Almaviva's second aria from Rossini's Barber of Seville.
