Ceux qui, parmi les morts d'amour
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ceux qui, parmi les morts d'amour,
Ont péri par le suicide
Sont enterrés au carrefour
Là s'épanouit et réside

Une fleur bleue étrange fleur
Aussi rare que sa couleur
Aucun nom ne l'a désignée
C'est la fleur de l'âme damnée!

Pendant la nuit au carrefour
Je soupire dans le silence
Au clair de lune se balance
La fleur des damnés de l'amour!

Among those who died from love
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
Among those who died from love,
Those who perished by suicide
Are buried at the crossroads.
There blossoms and resides

A blue flower, a strange flower
As rare as its color.
No name has it been given;
It is the flower of the damned soul!

During the night at the crossroads,
I breathe in the silence.
In the moonlight sways
The flower of those damned through love!
