Heimweh
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE FRE ITA
Anders wird die Welt mit jedem Schritt,
Den ich weiter von der Liebsten mache;
Mein Herz, das will nicht weiter mit.
Hier scheint die Sonne kalt in's Land,
Hier däucht mir Alles unbekannt,
Sogar die Blumen am Bache!
Hat jede Sache 
So fremd eine Miene, so falsch ein Gesicht.
Das Bächlein murmelt wohl und spricht:
Armer Knabe, komm bei mir vorüber,
Siehst auch hier Vergißmeinnicht!
-- Ja, die sind schön an jedem Ort,
Aber nicht wie dort.
Fort, nur fort!
Die Augen gehn mir über!

Nostalgia
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Muta il mondo ogni momento,
in cui sono distante dalla mia amata;
Il mio cuore non mi accompagna più.
Qui il sole splende freddo sulla terra,
Qui ogni cosa mi sembra sconosciuta,
perfino i fiori lungo il ruscello!
Ogni cosa,
appare estranea, falsa all'aspetto.
Mormora allora il ruscello e dice:
"Misero fanciullo, vieni da me,
anche qui fioriscono i nontiscordardime!
-- E' vero, sono belli ovunque,
ma non come là.
Via, ora, avanti!
Ho colmi di lacrime gli occhi!
