An dunkelblauem Himmel steht der Mond
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Chinese (中文) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
An dunkelblauem Himmel steht der Mond.
Ich habe meine Lampe ausgelöscht,
schwer von Gedanken ist mein einsam Herz.
Ich weine, weine;
meine armen Tränen rinnen so heiß und bitter von den Wangen,
weil du so fern bist meiner großen Sehnsucht,
weil du es nie begreifen wirst,
wie weh mir ist, wenn ich nicht bei dir bin.

La solitaire
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dans le ciel bleu sombre se tient la lune.
J'ai éteint ma lampe,
lourd de pensées est mon cœur solitaire.
Je pleure, pleure ;
mes pauvres larmes coulent si chaudes et amères sur mes joues,
parce que tu es si loin de ma grande nostalgie,
parce que tu ne comprends pas combien grande est ma douleur,
quand je ne suis pas près de toi.
