Geh, geliebter, geh jetzt!
Go, my darling, go now!

Geibel

Go, my darling, go now!
See, dawn is breaking.

People are already on the street
And the market is so busy
That the morning - pale, white morning -
Is already taking wing.
And Iím so afraid Ė the neighbours Ė
That youíll shock them,
For they donít know how deeply
I love you and you love me.

So, darling, go now!
See, dawn is breaking.

When the sun shining in the heavens
Drives the bright pearls from the field,
I, too, must tearfully
Leave the pearl that was my fortune.
What lends sparkle to the day for others,
Is night to my eyes,
For parting brings alarming darkness
As the morning sky grows light.

Go, my darling, go now!
See, dawn is breaking.

Break free from my arms now,
For if you miss your chance,
We might exchange a momentís warmth
For a long period of sorrow.
A day in purgatory
Is bearable
As long as beams of distant hope
Let us see heavenís glory.

So, my darling, go now!
See, the dawn is breaking
