Stimme im Dunkeln

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es klagt im Dunkeln irgendwo.
Ich möchte wissen, was es ist.
Der Wind klagt wohl die Nacht an.
Der Wind klagt aber nicht so nah.
Der Wind klagt immer in der Nacht.

In meinen Ohren klagt mein Blut,
mein Blut wohl.
Mein Blut klagt aber nicht so fremd.
Mein Blut ist ruhig wie die Nacht.
Ich glaub, ein Herz klagt irgendwo.

Voix dans le noir

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

On geint quelque part dans le noir.
Je voudrais savoir ce que c'est.
Le vent geint bien à la nuit.
Mais le vent ne geint pas si près.
Le vent geint toujours dans la nuit.

Mon sang geint dans mon oreille,
sans aucun doute mon sang.
Mais mon sang ne geint pas si bizarrement.
Mon sang est tranquille comme la nuit.
Je crois qu'un cœur geint quelque part.
