All my life
I’ve been waiting for you
My wonderful one
I’ve begun
Living all my life

All my love
Has been waiting for you
My life is sublime
Now that I’m
Giving all my love

You seem so lovely, so far above me
I’m almost afraid to look
But I adore you, I pledge before you
A heart that’s an open book

All my life
Hold me close to your heart
But all else above
Hold my love
Darling, just hold my love

About Der Landstreicher

Ιδού η αληθινή Ταϊτή, δηλαδή: πιστά πλασμένη με τη φαντασία μου. (Πολ Γκογκέν και Σαρλ Μορίς)............... Είμαστε εμείς οι ονειροπαρμένοι τρελλοί της γης με τη φλογισμένη καρδιά και τα έξαλλα μάτια. (Γιώργος Μακρής).............. Und wollt ihr wissen, wer ich bin, ich weiß es selber nicht, ich irre so durchs Leben hin, weiß nicht, wo ich zu Hause bin und will es wissen nicht. (Landstreicherlied, Arnold Waldwagner)...........
