Es klingt der Lärm der Welt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es klingt der Lärm der Welt, -
Ich hör' ihn nimmer;
Denn nur was du gesagt,
Das hör' ich immer.

Die Menschen schau'n mich an, -
Kaum denk' ich dessen;
Ich hab' sie alle ja
Um dich vergessen.

O, laß mich schweigen doch,
Mein Lieb, mein Eden!
Du hast mich stumm geküßt -
Ich kann nicht reden!

Ich gab ja alles her,
Nichts ist mir blieben;
Ich kann nur Eines mehr -
Dich lieben, lieben!

Chant de femme

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

Le bruit du monde résonne,
Je ne l'entends jamais ;
Car seulement ce que tu as dit,
C'est ce que j'entends toujours.

Les gens me regardent,
J'y pense à peine ;
Car d'eux j'ai tout
Oublié à cause de toi.

Oh, laisse-moi me taire,
Mon amour, mon Éden !
Tu m'as embrassée silencieusement,
Je ne peux plus parler !

J'ai tout donné,
Rien ne me reste ;
Je peux seulement une chose de plus --
T'aimer, t'aimer !
