Ich schleiche meine Straßen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich schleiche meine Straßen
Mit müdem Fuß einher,
Sie dehnt sich ohne Maßen,
Das Ränzel wird mir schwer.

Doch hab' ich drin geborgen
Kein Silber und kein Gold,
Nur meine stillen Sorgen
Hab' ich darein gerollt.

Ob mir der Himmel blaue,
Ob ich im Nebel geh' --
Ich weiß nicht, was ich schaue
Nur, daß ich dich nicht seh'!

Je me glisse dans les rues

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

Je me glisse dans les rues
Sur mes pieds fatigués,
Elles semblent sans fin,
Mon sac me semble lourd.

Mais je n'y ai mis
Ni argent ni or,
Seulement mes soucis silencieux
Enroulés dedans.

Que ce soit sous un ciel bleu,
Ou dans le brouillard que je marche,
Je ne sais pas ce que je vois,
Seulement que je ne te vois pas !
