Ich grolle nicht
(I Hold No Grudge)
(Robert Schumann, Dichterliebe; text: Heinrich Heine)

I hold no grudge, even when my heart is breaking,
Love lost forever! I hold no grudge.
As you shine in diamond glory,
Nothing shines in the night of your heart.
I will know that for a long time.

I hold no grudge, even when my heart is breaking.
I saw you in a dream
And saw the night in your heart
And saw the snake that feeds on your heart.
I saw, my love, how miserable you are.

I hold no grudge.

Letzte Hoffnung
(Last Hope)
(Franz Schubert, Winterreise; text: Wilhelm Müller)

Here and there on the trees
You can see some colored leaves,
And I often stop by the trees
And stand in thought.

Looking at a certain leaf,
I hang my hopes on it.
If the wind plays with my leaf,
A shudder runs through my body.

Oh, and if the leaf falls to the ground,
My hopes fall along with it.
I fall to the ground as well,
Crying on the grave of my hopes!

Die Nebensonnen
(Parhelion)
(Franz Schubert, Winterreise; text: Wilhelm Müller)

I saw three suns in the sky
And stared at them long and hard.

O, you are not my suns!
Go gaze in someone else’s face!
Yes, recently I also had three,
Now the best two have set.

If only the third would set!
I would feel better in the dark.

Rastlose Liebe
(Restless Love)
(music: Franz Schubert; text: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Against the snow,
The rain, the wind,
Always struggling!
Without rest and peace!

All the submission
Of heart to heart

How should I flee?

It’s all in vain!
Happiness without peace:
Love, that’s you!

Ich hab' im Traum geweinet
(I Wept in a Dream)
(Robert Schumann, Dichterliebe; text: Heinrich Heine)

I dreamed you lay in the grave.
I woke up
And the tears flowed
Down my cheeks.

I cried in the dream.
I dreamt you left me.
I woke up, and I cried
Long and hard.

I cried in the dream.
I dreamt you were still good to me.
I woke up, and still
Flowed my tears.
