Ich hab' dich geliebt, du ahntest es...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich hab' dich geliebt, du ahntest es nicht.
Ich wollte sprechen, ich durft' es nicht,
Ich harrte besserer Stunden.

Die besseren Stunden, ich fand sie nicht,
Ein anderer kam, [er]1 zögerte nicht.
Ich bin deinem Herzen entschwunden.

Wohl mag er dich lieben, ich weiss es nicht;
Ob treuer, als ich, ich glaub' es nicht.
O, hättest dein Glück du gefunden!
