Ich muß hinaus, ich muß zu Dir

Language: German

Ich muß hinaus, ich muß zu Dir,
Ich muß es selbst Dir sagen:
Du bist mein Frühling, Du nur mir
In diesen lichten Tagen.

Ich will die Rosen nicht mehr sehn,
Nicht mehr die grünen Matten;
Ich will nicht mehr zu Walde gehn
Nach Duft und Klang und Schatten.

Ich will nicht mehr der Lüfte Zug,
Nicht mehr der Wellen Rauschen,
Ich will nicht mehr der Vögel Flug
Und ihrem Liede lauschen. --

Ich will hinaus, ich will zu Dir,
Ich will es selbst Dir sagen:
Du bist mein Frühling, Du nur mir
In diesen lichten Tagen!

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.
