An dunkelblauem Himmel steht der Mond

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Chinese (中文)

An dunkelblauem Himmel steht der Mond.
Ich habe meine Lampe ausgelöscht,
schwer von Gedanken ist mein einsam Herz.
Ich weine, weine;
meine armen Tränen rinnen so heiß und bitter von den Wangen,
weil du so fern bist meiner großen Sehnsucht,
weil du es nie begreifen wirst,
wie weh mir ist, wenn ich nicht bei dir bin.

Translation(s): CZE ENG FRE

Já matné světlo lampy svoji zhas

Language: Czech (Čeština) after the German (Deutsch)

Já matné světlo lampy svoji zhas.
Myšlének příval tíží srdce mé.
Jsem sám a pláči, moje bledé skráně smáčí,
proudslz tak hořký, plný touhy.
Že vzdá len jsem a potobě tak toužím,
že jenom ty to nechápeš,
jak teskno mně, proč jenom ty to nechápeš,
jak teskno mně, bez te be když mám dlít.
