by Johann Ludwig Uhland (1787 - 1862)

So soll ich dich nun meiden
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
So soll ich dich nun meiden,
Du meines Lebens Lust!
Du küssest mich zum Scheiden,
Ich drücke dich an die Brust!

Ach, Liebchen, heißt das meiden,
Wenn man sich herzt und küßt?
Ach, Liebchen, heißt das scheiden,
Wenn man sich fest umschließt?
