But Not to Me (German translation)

But Not to Me

The April night is still and sweet
⁠With flowers on every tree;
Peace comes to them on quiet feet,
⁠But not to me.
 
My peace is hidden in his breast
⁠Where I shall never be;
Love comes to-night to all the rest,
⁠But not to me.

Aber nicht zu mir

Versions: #1#2#3#4
Die Aprilnacht ist süß und still,
Auf Bäumen duften Blumen hier;
Friede ganz leise kommen will,
Aber nicht zu mir.
 
Mein Friede ist verborgen in seiner Brust,
Entzogen meiner Begier;
Anderen bringt die Nacht heut Liebeslust,
Aber nicht zu mir.

Er duftet hier so schön wie nie!
