Blindes Schauen, dunkle Leuchte

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Blindes Schauen, dunkle Leuchte,
Ruhm voll Weh, erstorb'nes Leben,
Unheil, das ein Heil mir däuchte, 
Freud'ges Weinen, Lust voll Beben,
Süße Galle, durst'ge Feuchte,
Krieg im Frieden allerwegen,
Liebe, falsch versprachst du Segen,
Da dein Fluch den Schlaf mir scheuchte.

Regards aveugles, lumière sombre

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

Regards aveugles, lumière sombre,
Gloire pleine de douleur, vie mourante,
Malheur qui me semblait être un salut,
Larmes joyeuses, plaisir plein de tremblement,
Douce bile, humidité assoiffée,
Guerre dans la paix partout,
Amour, tu as promis faussement le bonheur,
Alors qu'une malédiction fait fuir mon sommeil.
