Lehn deine Wang' an meine Wang'

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lehn deine Wang' an meine Wang',
Dann fliessen die Tränen zusammen;
Und an mein Herz drück fest dein Herz,
Dann schlagen zusammen die Flammen!

Und wenn in die große Flamme fliesst
Der Strom von unsern Tränen,
Und wenn [dich mein Arm]1 gewaltig umschließt -
Sterb' ich vor Liebessehnen!

Poggia la tua guancia alla mia guancia

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Poggia la tua guancia alla mia guancia
Scorreranno insieme le lacrime;
il tuo cuore stringi forte al mio cuore,
arderanno insieme le fiamme!
 
E quando nella grande fiamma si sarà versato
tutto il  fiume del nostro pianto,
quando nel mio abbraccio ti terrò stretta forte --
Nella brama d'amore troverò la morte!
