Original text and translations
The stars are shining so clearly,
They seem not far from the city street,
But you Sweetheart, whom I love so dearly,
I half forget if we e'er did meet.
I half forget if 'twas I that kissed you
Once, where the willows kiss the stream.
I only know I have missed you
Out of my life, or out of a dream.
