Heart, we will forget him

Language: English

Heart, we will forget him
You and I, tonight.
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me,
That I [my thoughts may dim]1;
Haste! lest while you're lagging,
I may remember him!

Herz, lass’ uns ihn vergessen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Herz, lass’ uns ihn vergessen
noch eh’ die Nacht anbricht.
Du die Wärme, die er gab,
und ich vergess’ das Licht.

Hast Du’s geschafft, Herz, sag mir’s,
streich’ ich ihn aus dem Sinn.
Rasch! Dass nicht, wenn du zögerst,
ich wieder denk an ihn.
