No Man Will Sleep
No man will sleep! no man will sleep!
You too, oh princess,
In your virginal room,
Watch the stars trembling
With love and hope!
But my secret lies hidden within me,
No-one shall discover my name!
Oh no, i will reveal it only on your lips
When daylight shines forth!
And my kiss shall break
The silence that makes you mine!
No one will know his name
And we must, alas, die.
Depart, oh night! set, you stars!
Set, you stars! at dawn i shall win!
I shall win! i shall win!
