Du sprichst, daß ich mich täuschte
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Du sprichst, daß ich mich täuschte,
Beschworst es hoch und hehr,
Ich weiß ja doch, du liebtest,
Allein du liebst nicht mehr!

Dein schönes Auge brannte,
Die Küsse brannten sehr,
Du liebtest mich, bekenn es,
Allein du liebst nicht mehr!

Ich zähle nicht auf neue,
Getreue Wiederkehr;
Gesteh nur, daß du liebtest,
Und liebe mich nicht mehr!

You say that I deluded myself
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
You say that I deluded myself,
You swear it imposingly;
I know however, that you loved me,
Only now you love me no more.

Your lovely eyes glowed bright,
Your kisses burned greatly;
You loved me, confess it,
Only now you love me no more!

I count on nothing new,
No return to faithfulness;
Just admit that you did love,
And now love me no more!
