Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und flattern, flattern um dich her;
sie sagen, sie hätten Heimweh,
Hier litt' es die nicht mehr.

Bei dir sind meine Gedanken
Und wollen von dir, von dir nicht fort;
sie sagen, das wär' auf Erden
Der allerschönste Ort.

Sie sagen, unlösbar hielte
Dein Zauber sie festgebannt;
sie hätten an deinen Blicken
Die Flügel sich verbrannt.

I miei pensieri ti stanno accanto
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
I miei pensieri ti stanno accanto
E volano, volano tutt'intorno a te;
dicono, che avrebbero nostalgia,
se qui non fossero più accolti.
 
I miei pensieri ti stanno accanto
E non vogliono, non vogliono più abbandonarti;
dicono, che sulla terra
è questo il posto più bello.
 
Dicono che li tieni stretti
E che il tuo incanto li ha catturati;
e che per colpa dei tuoi sguardi
le loro ali si sono bruciate.
