Ich will alleine über die Berge gehn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich will alleine über die Berge gehn,
und keiner soll von meinen Wegen wissen;
denn wer den Pfad zu meinen Höhn gesehn,
hat mich von meinen Höhn herabgerissen.

Ich will alleine über die Berge gehn,
mein Lied soll ungehört am Fels verklingen,
und meine Klage soll im Wind verwehn; -
nur wer dem eignen Herzen singt, kann singen; -

nur wer dem eigenen Herzen klagt, kann klagen;
nur wer das eigne Herz erkennt, kann sehn. -
Hinauf zu mir! Ich will der Welt entsagen,
und will alleine über die Berge gehn.

I will go alone over the mountain

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

I will go alone over the mountain,
And none shall know my way;
Because who would see my pathway to the heights
Would tear me away from that path.

I will go alone over the mountain,
My song will sound unheard among the rock,
And my complaint will be lost in the wind; -
Only the one who sings with his own heart, shall sing; -

Only the one who sorrows with his own heart, shall sorrow;
Only the one who knows with his own heart, shall see. -
It is up to me! I shall renounce the world,
And will go alone over the mountain.
