Wohl vor lauter Sinne, Singen
Kommen wir nicht recht zum Leben;

Muß zu Ende gehn das Singen;
Ging zu Ende dann das Singen:
Mögen wir auch nicht länger leben.

Intermezzo da  "Vita di poeta"
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
A forza di pensare, a forza di cantare
Noi non troviamo più il tempo di vivere;
e se non ha vissuto una vita propria
il canto deve giungere alla fine;
e se il canto deve giungere alla fine
noi stessi non possiamo più a lungo vivere.
