English translation

Oh sad, sad was my soul.

Versions: #1#2
Oh sad, sad was my soul
Because, because of a woman
 
I did not console myself
Even though my heart has gone away
 
Even though my heart, even though my soul
Had fled far away from that woman
 
I did not console myself
Even though my heart has gone away
 
And my heart, my too sensitive heart
Said to my soul: Is it possible?
 
Is it possible? - was it -
This proud exile, this sad exile?
 
My soul said to my heart: Do I know
Myself what this trap wants from us
 
To be present although exiled
Even though gone so far
 
Oh sad, sad was my soul
Because, because of a woman
 
All of my work is dedicated to Ms Z. G., who is the real counterpart of Beatrice Portinari for me.
