Wenn ich auf dem Lager liege
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE SPA
Wenn ich auf dem Lager liege
In Nacht [und Kissen]1 gehüllt,
So schwebt mir vor ein süßes,
Anmutig liebes Bild!

Wenn mir der stille Schlummer
Geschlossen die Augen kaum,
So schleicht [das Bild sich leise]2
Hinein in meinen Traum

[Doch]3 mit dem Traum des Morgens
Zerrinnt es nimmermehr;
Dann trag' ich es im Herzen
Den ganzen Tag umher.

Cuando estoy tumbando en el campo
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Cuando estoy tumbando en el campo
envuelto en la noche
flota sobre mí la dulce,
encantadora imagen amada.

Cuando el silencioso sueño
apenas me ha cerrado los ojos
entonces se desliza la amada imagen
hacia el interior de mis sueños.

Y al llegar la mañana,
nunca se deshace con los sueños		
así que la llevo en el corazón
durante todo el día, a un lado y otro.
