In the Beautiful Month of May - Lyrics

Part I

Im wunderschönen Monat Mai
(In the Beautiful Month of May)
(music: Robert Schumann, Dichterliebe; text: Heinrich Heine)

In the beautiful month of May
As all the buds are springing,
Somewhere deep within my heart,
Love is arising.

Gute Nacht
(Good Night)
(music: Franz Schubert, Winterreise; text: Wilhelm Müller)

I came here as a stranger.
I will leave again as a stranger.
May has weighed me down
With many floral bouquets

A moonbeam travels with me
As my companion.

Now the world is so gloomy,
The path shrouded in snow.

Why should I stay longer
When they have driven me out?
Let the dogs howl
At their master’s door!
Loves love to walk.
God made them that way.
From one to the other,
God made them that way.
Good night!

I don’t want to disturb your dream.
It would be a shame to wake you.
You won’t hear my step.
Gently, gently the door closes!
As I pass, I write on your gate:
Good night
So that you might see
That I thought of you.

Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne/Und wüßten's die Blumen, die kleinen
(The Rose, the Lily, the Dove, the Sun/And the Little Flowers Knew)
(music: Robert Schumann, Dichterliebe; text: Heinrich Heine)

The rose and the lily and dove and sun
And the little flowers knew
I don’t love them anymore
The small one, the fine one, the pure one, the only one.
The rose and the lily and dove and sun
And the nightingale knew
The small one, the fine one, the pure one, the only one
And said: Comfort me.
