"Abschied" as written by and Nico/endoerfer Stojan....
Seinem Geiste bekenne ich mich
ein Sehnen verzehret sein schönes Gesicht
das ermattet, von Güte beschattet, allmächtig ist
Sein Körper bewegt sich nicht
Im Traume sich endlich sein Zwingen vergißt
Im heulenden Jubel erkenne ich dich,
Der mir den heiligen Frieden zerbricht
Sein schweigender Mund seine schlafende Brust
Harren zärtlich der süßen Lust
Sein Körper bewegt sich nicht
Im Traume sich endlich sein Zwingen vergisst

    General CommentDeparture

    I confess is myself its spirit
    a longing consumed its face that shadows ermattet,

    It has moved itself not in the trauma finally its clamps

    In the howling jubilation, I recognize await you who breaks me the holy peace; its silent mouth its sleeping breast the desire

    General CommentHere is my translation:

    The Parting/ Farewell

    I profess to his spirit
    A longing to consume his beautiful face
    That tires, is shadowed by goodness and is almighty*

    His body does not move
    In dreams his force finally forgets itself

    In a howling cheer,
    that breaks the holy peace to me,
    I recognize you;
    Your silent mouth, your sleeping breast
    Await tenderly the sweet joy

    Your body does not move
    In dreams his force finally forgets itself.

    *This is the one line I have trouble with, if someone can contribute a better translation I would appreciate it.

    Song MeaningAccording to Nico: The Life and Lies of An Icon, this song was one of two written for Nico's mother. Nico was quoted as saying that "One was for my living mother and one for my dead mother."

    This was for Nico's dead and biological mother. The living mother could be about her aunt, who was still alive and who she did consider a second mother, or it could be a metaphorical term about her mother being alive in her heart.
