Du machst mich allein. Dich einzig kann...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du machst mich allein. Dich einzig kann ich vertauschen.
Eine Weile bist du's, dann wieder ist es das Rauschen,
oder es ist ein Duft ohne Rest.
Ach, in den Armen hab ich sie alle verloren,
du nur, du wirst immer wieder geboren:
weil ich niemals dich anhielt, halt ich dich fest.

Toi seule me crée

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Toi seule me crée. Toi seule, je peux échanger.
Un instant c'est toi, puis à nouveau c'est un murmure,
ou c'est un parfum fugitif.
Ah, dans mes bras je les ai toutes perdues,
toi seule, tu renais toujours :
parce que je ne t'ai jamais retenue, je te tiens fort.
