Lyrics
Lass, o Welt, o lass mich sein!
Locket nicht mit Liebesgaben,
lass dies Herz alleine haben
seine Wonne, seine Pein!

Let me rest, o world, let me alone!
Don't seduce me with gifts of love,
Let this heart alone have
its blissfulness and its pain!

Sheer class Andreas!
I really enjoy the way you combine "old" and "new" styles in your music - it makes it so accessible. Fantastic performance and interpretation.
