Emma, sage mir die Wahrheit

Language: German (Deutsch)

Emma, sage mir die Wahrheit:
Ward ich närrisch durch die Liebe?
Oder ist die Liebe selber
Nur die Folge meiner Narrheit?

Ach! mich quälet, teure Emma,
Außer meiner tollen Liebe,
Außer meiner Liebestollheit,
Obendrein noch dies Dilemma.

Emma, sage mir die Wahrheit

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Emma, tell, and tell me truly,
   Was I foolish first through love?
   Or is love in very sooth
But the consequence of folly?

Oh, it worries me, dear Emma!
   Here there stands my own mad love,
   There love-madness, and above,
Worse than all, is this dilemma.
