The translation is singable.


Literal translation

Sad is the sky and sad is the land/earth
I'm sad down to the bottom of my heart
Around me everything is misery/despair
Why is everything so sad (sad like this)?
I'm sad down to the bottom of my heart

Where does the bird go, where does the bee go?
Where goes the hare from the heather?
Where does the wind go when it wakes up?
But I don't know where to go
As blooming as the heather may be

Let spring time come
April will come back tomorrow
I, who have in my heart a new pain,
Nobody alas wants to love me
Nobody alas wants to love me.
