Bei dir sind meine Gedanken

Language: German (Deutsch)

Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und flattern, flattern um dich her;
sie sagen, sie hätten Heimweh,
Hier litt' es die nicht mehr.

Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und wollen von dir, von dir nicht fort;
sie sagen, das wär' auf Erden
Der allerschönste Ort.

Sie sagen, unlösbar hielte
Dein Zauber sie festgebannt;
sie hätten an deinen Blicken
Die Flügel sich verbrannt.
