Die Sonne scheint nicht mehr
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE IRI ITA
Die Sonne scheint nicht mehr 
So schön, als wie vorher,
Der Tag ist nicht so heiter,
So liebreich gar nicht mehr.

Das Feuer kann man löschen, 
Die Liebe nicht vergessen,
Das Feuer brennt so sehr, 
Die Liebe noch viel mehr.

Mein Herz ist nicht mehr mein,
O könnt ich bei dir sein,
So wäre mir geholfen
Von aller meiner Pein.

The sun doesn't shine any more
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
The sun doesn't shine any more
As beautifully as it did until recently,
The day isn't as carefree as before,
as lovely any more.

Fire can be put out,
Love can not be smothered,
The fire burns so strongly,
My love does even more.

My heart no longer belongs to me,
Oh, how I wish I could be with thee,
Thus relieving me
of all my sorrows.
