If you must send me, dear, away,
at least take me yourself!
Set me safe in some distant place
where I can't even run for help

If you must send me, dear, so far,
take me to the lonely hills
I want nobody next to me
if I can't have you there as well.

But you say I'm just a distraction
and that my proximity
completely wrecks concentration--
well, I don't know why that should be!

But, if you must send me, dear, from you,
at least kiss me goodbye--
And if you see it's hard to leave, well,
stay with me, if you like--- stay with me all my life!
