Und jede Nacht derselbe Traum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Traum: du stehest fern und still,
Es schlägt mein Herz beklommen --
O Mutter, Mutter kannst du nicht 
Zu mir herüberkommen?

Und jede Nacht derselbe Traum!
Es schluchzt mein Herz beklommen --
O Mutter, warum willst du nicht 
Zu mir herüberkommen?

Et chaque nuit le même rêve

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

Un rêve : tu es loin et silencieuse,
Mon cœur oppressé bat.
Ô mère, mère ne peux-tu pas
Venir à moi jusqu'ici ?

Et chaque nuit le même rêve !
Mon cœur oppressé sanglote.
Ô mère, pourquoi ne veux-tu pas
Venir à moi jusqu'ici ?
