Love is a rebellious raven
That nobody can tame
Nothing helps, neither threat nor prayer
One man talks well to someone else dreams
Love! Love! Love! Love!
Love is a gypsy's child
It has never, ever, known a law
Love me not, then I love you
All around you, swift, so swift
It comes, it goes, and then returns
The bird you thought you had caught
Suddenly beat its wings and flew away
You think you hold it fast, it flees
You think you're free, it holds you fast
Love stays away, you wait and wait
When least expected, there it is!
Over the far horizon on the ocean
And then the wooden boat appears
And then the flying seagulls are white
It enters into the port, it rumbles its salute
And I wait a long time, sweetheart
And leaving from the crowded nuance
I stay upon the edge of the morning shore
I will call velvet firefly from the distance
One good day, we will see
Arising a strand of orange smoke
I without answering, stay hidden
A little to tease this mysterious love
You are queen of my heart
You are the splendor of my life
For you I have fought
For you I have challenge
To place a royal garland on your hair
To raise you a throne next to the sun
I want to give you back your beautiful sky
The sweet breezes of your sparkle garden
Sweet name, you who made my sensitive heart
Throb for the first time, you must always remind me
Hold back your fears, O bittersweet Love!
I with secure faith wait for you, O the pleasures of love!
And to you, my sweet love!
To return crowned with laurels
If only my dream might come true
O Exotic garland of light and flowers!
And my last breath
Will be yours, my beloved
My desire will fly to you
On the wings of the angels
