I bear no grudge, even though my heart may break.
Eternally lost love! I bear no grudge.
Though you're shining in your diamond splendour,
No ray of light falls on the darkness of your heart.
I've noted well for a long time. I bear no grudge.

Ich grolle nicht, und wenn das Herz auch bricht.
Ewig verlornes Lieb! Ich grolle nicht.
Though you're shining in your diamond splendour,
No ray of light falls on the darkness of your heart.
I've noted well for a long time. I bear no grudge.

I saw you in a dream,
I saw the darkness in your heart,
I saw the snake that feeds upon your heart,
I saw, my love, how utterly wretched you are.
I bear no grudge, I bear no grudge.
I'm over you, so come on come on ... come on back to me, ok?
Alright

    General CommentI think the title of this must refer to his regards towards the state of mind he felt after this particular break-up. In which case he seems to fluctuate from despising the person that shunned him to missing them and wanting them in back

    OR

    what is more likely, he is trying to convince himself that he is over this person, repeating over and over that he bears no grudge, but at the same trying trying to pick fault at her to make things easier - although eventually he concedes he wants her back.

    General Commentit's a translation of schumann's Ich Grolle Nicht (except for the final part).

    nonetheless, andrew bird's version is incredible.
