Ich kann's nicht fassen, nicht glauben
I can't believe it

Frauenliebe und -leben Love in a Woman's Life


I can’t believe it,
Dreaming’s affected my brain!
With so many to choose from,
Why pick me? I’m so plain!

I think he said:
"I’m yours for ever!”
A dream, I think,
Not real life …. Never!

So while still dreaming, let me die
Here cradled on his breast,
Embracing death with happiness,
By endless tears of joy possessed.
