Lyrics

Jeder Panzer, auch die stärkste
Bombe ist zu leicht —
Leichter als die Zeit, die viel zu Gleichmäßig verstreicht.
Jede Mine, jede Kachel,
Jedes Sturmgewehr
Kann ich heben, doch ein Haar von
Dir ist mir zu schwer.
Ich hab' Dich, ich hab' Dich
Ich hab' dich gespürt.
Etwas hat, etwas hat,
Hat mich dort berührt.
Ich war da, ganz nah bei,
Ganz nah über Dir,
Etwas hat überlebt,
überlebt in mir.
Jedes Foto, jede Karte,
Allen Sand und Schnee
Nehme ich auf meine Schultern,
Tut es noch so weh.
Ich will alles stemmen, denn
Nichts kümmert mich hier mehr,
Außer einem Haar von Dir,
Doch das ist viel zu schwer.
Ich hab' Dich, ich hab' Dich
Ich hab' dich gespürt.
Etwas hat, etwas hat,
Hat mich dort berührt.
Du warst da, ganz nah bei,
Ganz nah unter mir,
Etwas hat überlebt,
Überlebt in Dir.
Alles, was noch nicht geschehen
Ist, schlägt auf mich ein —
Nichts blieb von Dir übrig, so soll
Auch von mir nichts übrig sein.
Ich kann so viel tragen, doch
Nichts lastet auf mir mehr,
Als das letzte Haar von Dir, es Wiegt so schrecklich schwer.
Everytank, even the heaviest
Bomb is far too light —
Lighter than the time, that is passing
By far too steadily.
I can lift every mine, every tile,
Every assault rifle,
But a singlehair from you
Is too heavy for me.
I have felt, i have felt,
I have felt you.
Something has, something has,
Has toched me there.
I was there, so closy by.
So close above you,
Something has survived,
Survived in me.
Every picture, every postcard,
All teh sand and snow,
I take it all upon my shoulders
Even though it hurts.
I want to lift everything, for
Nothing here interests me any more,
Apart from a single hair from you,
But it is far too heavy.
I have felt, i have felt,
I have felt you.
Something has, something has,
Has toched me there.
You were there, so closy by.
So close under me,
Something has survived,
Survived from you.
Everything which still hasen’t happened
Hits out at me —
There was nothing left of you,
So shall there be nothing left of me.
I can carry so much, but
Nothing weighs heavier on me Than the last hair from you, it Is so terribly heavy.

Lyrics translation

Each tank, even the strongest
Bomb is too light —
Easier than the time that passes too evenly.
Every Mine, every tile,
Each Assault Rifle
Can I lift, but a hair of
You are too heavy for me.
I got You, I got You
I felt you.
Something has, something has,
Touched me there.
I was there, very close to,
Very close above you,
Something has survived,
survives in me.
Every photo, every map,
All Sand and snow
I take on my shoulders,
It still hurts so much.
I want to do everything, because
Nothing I care about here anymore,
Except a hair of yours,
But this is far too difficult.
I got You, I got You
I felt you.
Something has, something has,
Touched me there.
You were there, very close to,
Very close under me,
Something has survived,
Survive in you.
Everything that has not yet happened
Is hitting on me —
Nothing remained of you, so shall
Also nothing will be left of me.
I can carry so much, but
Nothing weighs on me more,
As the last hair of you, it weighs so terribly heavy.
Every tank, even the heaviest
Bomb is far too light —
Lighter than the time that is passing
By far too steadily.
I can lift every mine, every tile,
Every assault rifle,
But a singlehair from you
Is too heavy for me.
I have felt, i have felt,
I have felt you.
Something has, something has,
Has toched me there.
I was there, so close by.
So close above you,
Something has survived,
Survived in me.
Every picture, every postcard,
All teh sand and snow,
I take it all upon my shoulders
Even though it hurts.
I want to lift everything, for
Nothing here interests me any more,
Apart from a single hair from you,
But it is far too heavy.
I have felt, i have felt,
I have felt you.
Something has, something has,
Has toched me there.
You were there, so close by.
So close under me,
Something has survived,
Survived from you.
Everything which still hasn't happened
Hits out at me —
There was nothing left of you,
So shall there be nothing left of me.
I can carry so much, but
Nothing weighs heavier on me Than the last hair from you, it Is so terribly heavy.
