Song of the Day: Dein ist mein ganzes Herz

20 Apr

Dein ist mein ganzes Herz



Dein ist mein ganzes Herz!
Wo du nicht bist, kann ich nicht sein.
So, wie die Blume welkt,
wenn sie nicht küsst der Sonnenschein!
Dein ist mein schönstes Lied,
weil es allein aus der Liebe erblüht.
Sag mir noch einmal, mein einzig Lieb,
oh sag noch einmal mir:
Ich hab dich lieb!
Wohin ich immer gehe,
ich fühle deine Nähe.
Ich möchte deinen Atem trinken
und betend dir zu Füssen sinken,
dir, dir allein! Wie wunderbar
ist dein leuchtendes Haar!
Traumschön und sehnsuchtsbang
ist dein strahlender Blick.
Hör ich der Stimme Klang,
ist es so wie Musik.
Dein ist mein ganzes Herz



My Heart is Yours Alone


My heart is yours alone!
I cannot be without you.
Like a flower that wilts
when unkissed by the sun!
My most beautiful song is yours,
for it is created out of love.
Tell me once more, my one and only,
oh tell me once more:
I love you!
Wherever I am
I feel you are near.
I want to drink your breath
and kneel adoringly at your feet,
yours, yours alone! How wonderful
your shining hair is!
Dreamy and full of longing
is your radiant gaze
Full of dreams and ancient longing
When I hear your voice,
it is like music
My whole heart is yours.



Das Land des Lächelns

    Music is so important to you! You could make a music blog. You are as aficionado as Doctor House!

    Hey Pedro, nice of you to drop by! I love this song, and the version I heard was that of Placido Domingo, just beautiful, muy, muy! 😉 And also, somebody told me about this episode of House where he listens to Nessun Dorma- I already have great visions!

    Does anyone know where to purchase a score for Dein is mein ganzes Herz? We put on an annual variety show and this would be perfect.
