Aus der Heimat hinter den Blitzen rot

Language: German (Deutsch)

Aus der Heimat hinter den Blitzen rot
Da kommen die Wolken her,
Aber Vater und Mutter sind lange tot,
Es kennt mich dort [keiner]1 mehr.

Wie bald, wie bald kommt die stille Zeit,
Da ruhe ich auch, und über mir
[Rauschet]2 die schöne Waldeinsamkeit,
Und keiner [mehr kennt mich auch]3 hier.


Translation(s): DUT ENG ENG FRE HEB ITA NOR POR SPA

Far from home

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Far from home and land, here the lightning strikes red
And clouds wander dark overhead
For my father and mother are long since gone
And I am not known anymore.

How soon, oh, how soon, will my silence come
That I, too, may fly - my soul gently rest
And over, always, will murmur - the dark lovely forest
My beautiful woodland of yore 
Eternal forest within - And I am not known anymore.
