Ich bin so allein

Language: German (Deutsch)

[Ich bin so allein]1
Fänd ich den Schatten
Eines süßen Herzens.

-- Oder mir jemand
Einen Stern schenkte --

Immer fingen ihn
Die Engel auf
So hin und her.

Ich fürchte mich
Vor der schwarzen Erde.
Wie soll ich fort?

Möchte in den Wolken
Begraben sein,
Überall wo Sonne wächst,

Liebe dich so!
Du mich ach?
Sag es doch -- -- --
