Straßen hin und Straßen her

Language: German (Deutsch)

Straßen hin und Straßen her
Wandr ich in der Nacht;
Bin [aus Träumen]1 dumpf und schwer
Schluchzend aufgewacht.
Lust und Schmerz, --
Ach, wohin treibt mich mein Herz?
Ach, wohin treibt mich mein Herz?
Steht ein Haus in Grün gebaut
[Draußen vor]2 der Stadt,
Wo der Fluß mit [leisem Laut]3
Sein Geströme hat.
Dicht es ein:
Dort möcht ich zu Gaste sein,
Dort möcht ich zu Gaste sein.
