Mein Herz ist zerrissen, du liebst mich...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mein Herz ist [zerrissen]1, du liebst mich nicht!
Du ließest mich's wissen, du liebst mich nicht!
Wiewol ich dir flehend und werbend erschien,
Und liebebeflissen, du liebst mich nicht!
Du hast es gesprochen, mit Worten gesagt,
Mit allzugewissen, du liebst mich nicht!
So soll ich die Sterne, so soll ich den Mond, 
Die Sonne vermissen? du liebst mich nicht!
Was blüht mir die Rose? was blüht der Jasmin?
Was blühn die Narzissen? du liebst mich nicht!

You do not love me

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

My heart has been torn to pieces: you do not love me!
You let me know that you do not love me!
Although I appeared before you, pleading and entreating,
And overflowing with love, you do not love me!
You have said so, with words,
With so much certainty: you do not love me!
Shall I now miss the stars, miss the moon,
And the sun? For you do not love me!
What is it to me that roses bloom, or jasmine;
What is it to me that the narcissus blooms? You do not love me!
