Sehnsucht
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE IRI ITA SPA
Mein Schatz ist nicht da,
Ist weit überm See,
Und so oft ich dran denk',
Tut mir's Herze so weh!

Schön blau ist der See,
Und mein Herz tut mir weh,
Und mein Herz wird nicht g'sund,
Bis mein Schatz wiederkommt.

Nostalgia
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Mi amor no está aquí.
Está lejos, al otro lado del mar.
¡Y cada vez que pienso en ello
se me aflige tanto el corazón!

El mar es de un azul hermoso
y se me aflige el corazón.
Y mi corazón no sanará
hasta que mi amor regrese.
