Ich habe nichts mehr zu sagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich habe nichts mehr zu sagen,
Ich habe alles gesagt.
Nun will ich klingend zum letzten Takt
Meine gute Geige zerschlagen.

Zerschlagen -- und wandern wieder
Ins Land, woher ich kam,
Wo ich in Jugendtagen vernahm
Den Traum vom Lied der Lieder.

Ihn träumen will ich wieder
Abseits und ganz allein --
Es muß voll tiefen Friedens sein,
Der Traum vom Lied der Lieder.
