Gib ein Lied mir wieder
Sing a song for me once more

Modern Times CD


Sing a song for me once more
In the clear tones of your happy days
As you know, peace has left me
And my hand is troubled.

When dark minds reflect,
images appear, rare, exalted,
But the illuminating memory is missing;
The colour, bright and happy.

When sickly minds are talking,
Then flattering tones sooth,
Then the voice is low and rich,
But for singing, it is not so beautiful.
