O wr dein Haus durchsichtig wie ein Glas
Oh, if your house were transparent

Heyse

Oh, if your house were transparent like a glass one,
Whenever I crept by, my darling,
Id always see you there inside!
How Id look at you then with all my soul!
How many glances my heart would send you,
More than there are drops in the river Seine!
How many glances would I send you,
More than there are drops that fall in the rain!

Roses Und gestern hat er mir Rosen gebracht Thelka Lingen

Oh, yesterday he brought me roses,
The whole night was filled with their scent;
To encourage him whos thinking of me,
I made him a gift of a whole nights dream.
And today I go round smiling, wordless
And carry his roses around with me
And wait and listen, and if the door goes,
Then my heart quakes, oh, if only hed come!
Oh, if only hed come to me!
And I kiss the roses he brought me
And go search out the dream I had last night.....
