Du, der ichs nicht sage

Set by Anton von Webern (1883 - 1945), "Du, der ichs nicht sage", op. 8 (Zwei Lieder nach Gedichten von Rainer Maria Rilke) no. 1 (1910). [ sung text checked 1 time]

Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

Du, der ichs nicht sage, daß ich bei Nacht
weinend liege,
deren Wesen mich müde macht
wie eine Wiege.
Du, die mir nicht sagt, wenn sie wacht
Meinetwillen:
wie, wenn wir diese Pracht
ohne zu stillen
in uns ertrügen?

Sieh dir die Liebenden an,
wenn erst das Bekennen begann,
wie bald sie lügen.
