Il pleure dans mon cœur

Language: French (Français)

Il pleure dans mon cœur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langueur
Qui pénètre mon cœur ?

Ô bruit doux de la pluie,
Par terre et sur les toits!
Pour un cœur qui s'ennuie,
Ô le [chant]1 de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans [ce]2 cœur qui s'écœure.
Quoi! nulle trahison ? ...
[Ce]3 deuil est sans raison.

C'est bien la pire peine,
De ne savoir pourquoi
Sans amour et sans haine
Mon cœur a tant de peine!

Regen

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

Regen [sinkt auf die]1 Stadt,
und mein [Herz]2 steht in Tränen.
Ich weiß nicht, was es hat:
mein Herz ist voll Sehnen.

[Das]3 ruhige Regenklopfen
auf den Dächern und Gassen.
Leise trommeln die Tropfen:
Verlassen, verlassen!

Warum nur muss ich weinen?
Mein Herz ist am Verscheiden.
Warum? Ich weiss ja keinen
Grund, solchen Gram zu leiden!

O das ist bitt're Pein:
so sonder Lieb und Groll
unsäglich traurig sein,
das Herz von Tränen voll.
