Wie ein Rausch ist deine Liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie ein Rausch ist deine Liebe,
Deine Küsse wie der Wein -
Trank ich mich an deinen Lippen
Selig satt, so schlaf ich ein.

Und dein Arm ist meine Wiege,
Heimlich singst du mir ein Lied,
Daß ein Glanz von Glück und Liebe
Noch durch meine Träume zieht.

Comme une ivresse

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

Comme une ivresse est ton amour,
Tes baisers sont comme le vin --
À tes lèvres j'ai bu
À satiété le bonheur, j'ai si sommeil.

Et ton bras est mon berceau,
En secret tu me chantes un chant,
Qu'un éclat de bonheur et d'amour
Entraîne mes rêves.
