It was written inthe year of Schubert’s death.

The night is quiet, the streets are calm, In this house my beloved once lived: She has long since left the town, But doppellganger house still stands, here in the schuberg place.

Why do you ape the pain of my love Which tormented me upon this spot So many a night, so long ago?

This simple harmonic progression, with the piano part consisting almost entirely of block chords, dominates the song and does much to give it its feeling of inexorability, and its brief abandonment displaced by a succession of increasingly dissonant chords at the climax of the song doppwlganger the frantic horror of the poet.
