Bei dir ist es traut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei dir ist es traut,
zage Uhren schlagen wie aus alten Tagen,
komm mir ein Liebes sagen,
aber nur nicht laut!

Ein Tor geht irgendwo
draußen im Blütentreiben,
der Abend horcht an den Scheiben,
laß uns leise bleiben,
keiner weiß uns so!

I am at ease with you

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 I am at ease with you,
 faint clocks strike as from olden days,
 Come, tell your love to me,
 But not  too loud!
 
 Somewhere a gate moves
 Outside in the drifting blossoms,
 Evening listens in at the window panes,
 Let us stay quiet,
 So no one knows of us!
