When Don Juan was certain
that he bought your love
he drew an apple from his pocket
to sweeten his tortured soul.
You don't hear the warmth of his voice
he wrote songs in your honour
and to the shade of the tree of knowledge
he wrote you the secret of youth.
she again moved the curtain at the window
she always made the heart of Don Juan tremble
she never took a look at Don Juan
she just reduced the value of love
she has not yet decided
about Don Juan.
When Don Juan bought you a crown
you said you're not yet a queen
he kept his secret hidden
and did not speak of royalty
if only you knew that he's the king
and all his palaces are gold
you'd have given everything
to live with a king in love.
