Kein Feuer, keine Kohle kann brennen so...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Kein Feuer, keine Kohle kann brennen so heiß
Als heimliche Liebe, von der niemand nicht weiß.

Keine Rose, keine Nelke kann blühen so schön,
Als wenn zwei verliebte Seelen so bei einander stehn.

Setze du mir einen Spiegel ins Herz mir hinein,
Damit du kannst sehen, wie so treu ich es mein'!

Aucun feu, aucun charbon ne peut brûler aussi fort

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

Aucun feu, aucun charbon ne peut brûler aussi fort
Que cet amour secret que personne ne connaît.

Pas une rose, pas un œillet ne peut fleurir aussi joliment
Que lorsque deux âmes se tiennent l'une près de l'autre.

Si tu mets un miroir dans mon cœur,
Alors tu peux voir combien sincèrement je le pense !
