Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA SPA
«Lebe wohl» - Du [fühlest]1 nicht,
Was es heißt, dies Wort der Schmerzen;
Mit getrostem Angesicht
Sagtest du's und leichtem Herzen.

Lebe wohl! - Ach tausendmal
Hab' ich mir es vorgesprochen
Und in nimmersatter Qual
Mir das Herz damit gebrochen!
