Original language: Liederstrauß : Sieben Gedichte aus dem Buch der Lieder von Heinrich Heine
1. Sie haben heut' abend Gesellschaft [sung text checked 1 time]
Sie [haben]1 heut' abend Gesellschaft
Und das Haus ist lichterfüllt.
Dort oben am [hohen]2 Fenster
Bewegt sich ein Schattenbild.

Du [siehst]3 mich nicht, im Dunkeln
Steh' ich hier unten allein,
Noch weniger kannst du schauen
In mein dunkles Herz hinein.

Mein dunkles Herze liebt dich,
Es liebt dich und es bricht,
[Es]4 brich und zuckt und verblutet,
[Du aber]5 siehst es nicht.

1. Tenen convidats aquest vespre
Tenen convidats aquest vespre
i la casa està plena de llum.
Allà dalt, a la finestra,
es belluga la silueta d'una ombra.

Tu no em veus, jo estic sol,
a baix en la foscúria
i encara menys hi pots veure
dins del meu cor sense llum.

El meu cor fosc t'estima, 
t'estima i es fa trossos,
es trenca, tremola i es dessagna,
però tu no ho veus.

2. Ich stand in dunkeln Träumen [sung text checked 1 time]
Ich stand in [dunkeln]1 Träumen
Und [starrte]2 ihr Bildniß an,
Und das geliebte Antlitz
Heimlich zu leben begann.
 
Um ihre Lippen zog sich
Ein Lächeln wunderbar,
Und wie von Wehmuthsthränen
Erglänzte [ihr]3 Augenpaar.
 
Auch meine Thränen flossen
Mir von den Wangen herab - 
Und ach, ich [kann es]4 nicht glauben,
Daß ich Dich verloren hab'!

2. Estava immers en obscures vagueries
Estava immers en obscures vagueries
i mirava el seu retrat,
llavors el seu estimat rostre
prengué vida misteriosament.

En els seus llavis es dibuixà
un meravellós somriure
i, com de llàgrimes de melangia,
brillaren els seus ulls.

A mi també, les llàgrimes
em queien per les galtes --
i ai las! A penes em puc creure 
que t'he perdut!

3. Das ist ein Brausen und Heulen [sung text not yet checked]
Das ist ein Brausen und Heulen,
Herbstnacht und Regen und Wind;
Wo mag wohl jetzo weilen
Mein armes, banges Kind?

Ich seh' sie am Fenster lehnen
Im einsamen Kämmerlein;
Das Auge gefüllt mit Tränen,
Starrt sie in die Nacht hinein.

3. Tot són bramuls i udols
Tot són bramuls i udols,
pluja i vent en aquesta nit de tardor.
On deu romandre, a hores d'ara,
la meva pobra, temorosa criatura?

La veig recolzada a la finestra
tota sola en la petita cambra;
amb els ulls plens de llàgrimes,
contempla la nit.

4. Aus meinen großen Schmerzen [sung text not yet checked]
Aus meinen großen Schmerzen
Mach' ich die kleinen Lieder;
Die heben ihr klingend Gefieder
Und flattern nach ihrem Herzen.

Sie fanden den Weg zur Trauten,
Doch kommen sie wieder und klagen,
Und klagen, und wollen nicht sagen,
Was sie im Herzen schauten.

4. De les meves grans sofrences
De les meves grans sofrences
en faig petites cançons;
elles alcen llur dringant plomatge
i voletegen vers el seu cor.

Trobaren el camí cap a la meva estimada,
però sempre tornen i es planyen,
es planyen i no volen dir,
allò que en el seu cor veieren.

5. Mir träumte von einem Königskind [sung text not yet checked]
Mir [träumte]1 von einem Königskind,
Mit nassen, blassen Wangen;
Wir sassen unter der grünen Lind'
Und hielten uns liebeumfangen.

"Ich will nicht deines Vaters Thron,
Ich will nicht sein Scepter [von]2 Golde,
Ich will nicht seine demantene Kron',
Ich will dich selber, du Holde!"

Das kann nicht sein, sprach sie zu mir,
ich liege ja im Grabe,
und nur des Nachts komm' ich zu dir,
weil ich so lieb dich habe.

5. He somiat en la filla d'un rei
He somiat en la filla d'un rei,
amb galtes rellents, pàl·lides;
seiem sota el verd til·ler
i ens abraçàvem amorosament.

"No vull el tron del teu pare,
no vull el seu ceptre d'or,
no vull la seva corona de diamants,
només et vull a tu, estimada!"

Això no pot ser, ella em digué,
car jec a la tomba,
i només a les nits vinc cap a tu,
perquè t'estimo eternament.

6. Mein Liebchen, wir sassen beisammen [sung text not yet checked]
Mein Liebchen, wir sassen beisammen,
Traulich im leichten Kahn.
Die Nacht war still, und wir schwammen
Auf weiter Wasserbahn.

Die Geisterinsel, die schöne,
Lag dämm'rig im Mondenglanz;
Dort klangen liebe Töne,
Dort wogte der Nebeltanz.

Dort klang es lieb und lieber,
Und wogt' es hin und her;
Wir aber schwammen vorüber,
Trostlos auf weitem Meer.

6. Estimada, seiem tots dos ensems
Estimada, seiem tots dos ensems,
confiats, en la frèjola barca.
La nit era tranquil·la i singlarem
en l'àmplia corrent d'aigua.

L'illa dels esperits, en la seva bellesa,
es mostrava boirosa a la claror de la lluna;
allà sonaven dolces tonalitats,
allà es gronxejava la boira com en una dansa.

Allà hi sonava més i més dolçament
i es gronxejava d'un costat a l'altre;
però nosaltres passarem de llarg,
desolats, navegant en l'ampli mar.

Es blasen die blauen Husaren
und reiten zum Tor hinaus;
da komm' ich, Geliebte, und bringe
dir einen Rosenstrauß.

Das war eine wilde Wirtschaft!
Kriegsvolk und Landesplag'!
Sogar in deinem Herzen
viel Einquartierung lag.

7. Els blaus hússars toquen la trompeta
Els blaus hússars toquen la trompeta
i cavalquen més enllà del portal;
suara vinc, estimada, i et porto
un ram de roses.

Ha estat un ferotge tropell!
Soldadesca i flagell per al país!
Fins i tot en el teu petit cor
força acantonament hi havia.
