Nicht mehr zu dir zu gehen

Language: German

Nicht mehr zu dir zu gehen
Beschloß ich und beschwor ich,
Und gehe jeden Abend,
Denn jede Kraft und jeden Halt verlor ich.

Ich möchte nicht mehr leben,
Möcht' augenblicks verderben,
Und möchte doch auch leben
Für dich, mit dir, und nimmer, nimmer sterben.

Ach, rede, sprich ein Wort nur,
Ein einziges, ein klares;
Gib Leben oder Tod mir,
Nur dein Gefühl enthülle mir, dein wahres!



Translation(s): ENG FRE CAT

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it and, despite my best efforts, this project has never received public funding. It is supported financially by roughly 0.013% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
