RADAMES' GARDEN Song Lyrics
RADAMES walks the Nile. AIDA enters. They stare at each other for a moment
then embrace passionately.
Aida! I thought you were...
They came for me. But they took another. I blame myself.
No. I put you in danger. But I swear, it will never happen again. I'm calling
off the wedding. I am going to build you a house on an island at the border
of our countries. And we will sail the Nile.
Oh Radames -
(She stops herself short, realizes this foils her father's escape plans.)
No! You can't. You can't call of the wedding!
(AIDA pulls out of RADAMES' arms and steps away.)
Yes, I can. And I will.
I love you, Radames. But you must marry the princess tomorrow. Tomorrow. What
you want for us is impossible. They would hunt us down. It is a foolish plan.
I will find a way for us to be together.
