Wer hätte sie gesehn und nicht auch sie...

Language: German

Wer hätte sie gesehn und nicht
auch sie geliebt?
Ich sah sie und ich hab',
ich weiss nicht wie, geliebt.
Ich hab' ihr oft gehorcht,
und selbst ihr härtstes Wort
hab' ich wie Nachtigallenmelodie geliebt.
Nur Eine hat mein Herz für diese Welt geraubt
und nichts begehrt' ich mehr,
wenn mich nur die geliebt.
Ja in der andern Welt wird Adil
sprechen noch:
hätt' ich nicht Dich geliebt,
Ich hätte nie geliebt.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
