Neues und altes Zeug

Ein ganz normales Leben

Er wünscht sich
Luft zu atmen,
die gut riecht und gut schmeckt
und in der Nacht
ist sie still

Sauberes Wasser,
das man ohne Filter trinkt
und das immer kommt,
wenn man will

Schnee im Winter,
aber nicht auf der Straße,
im Herbst bunte Blätter
im Wald

Sterne zu zählen
in der Mittsommernacht
Und im Warmen zu sein,
ist es kalt

Er wünscht und er wünscht und
Wünscht er sich zu viel?
Das könnt es doch ganz einfach geben!
Ein ganz normales Leben

Er wünscht sich
Menschen zu treffen,
die er versteht,
und Menschen, die ihn
verstehn

Familie zu leben
und alle mindestens
einmal die Woche
zu sehn

Mit Freunden zu treffen
zum Kino, zum Bier
wo man jedes Wort
auch so meint

Der Person zu begegnen,
mit der man alles teilt
die Seelen verbunden,
vereint

Er wünscht und er wünscht und
Wünscht er sich zu viel?
Warum sollte es das nicht geben?
Nur ein ganz normales Leben

Er wünscht sich
Einzuschlafen,
wenn der Kopf es erlaubt
ohne, dass ihn die Angst
darum bringt

Durchzuschlafen,
wenn der Körper es will
und ohne, dass man ihn
dazu zwingt

Wieder Haare zu haben,
wo man sie braucht,
und, wie früher,
einen klaren Verstand

Die Haut zu spüren
an jeder Stelle
und das nicht nur
unter eigener Hand

Er wünscht und er wünscht und
Wünscht er sich zu viel?
Kann es das nicht ganz einfach mal geben?

Nur ein ganz normales Leben

Never make it up to you

This phone call before Christmas changed my life

It gave me purpose, made me strong

Something to live for and to come alive

Gave me a place, where I’d belong

 

And so I left my old life way behind

At the beginning, it was hard

You made it easy, ‘cause I’d always find

A helping hand, right from the start

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

And now, things are, as they’re supposed to be

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more

 

You stood by me, when I was down and out,

You stood by me, when I was ill,

When all was lost and there seemed no way out

I felt you, strong, behind me still

 

When I came back, there was this deep felt warmth,

The open heart, the open mind

New people, friends, welcome with open arms,

The best surroundings, you could find

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

And now, things are, as they’re supposed to be

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more

 

We knew, to make this new way possible, then

It would require a slower pace

For things to fall back into place again

You gave me time, you gave me space

 

Now I’m so sad, I disappointed you

I am sorry, I let you down

These expectations, all to live up to

I thought, I’d sooner come around

 

It seems, that there is no more time to show

You the efficient, stronger me

To prove you right and to make sure, you know

I’m just the way, I used to be.

 

You took me in and you cared for me

I could never thank you more

I thought me stronger, than I seem to be,

So much, much different than before

 

And I can never make it up to you

You know me as I was before

I can never make up to you

And there is nothing I want more

This all will be over

when you look at your child,
tell me: What do you see?
those big, curious eyes
wondering constantly

make them shine, take them in
their laughter, their tears,
their lust and their hunger,
their joy and their fears

take a long, long good look
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over
all will be over
one day
one day
one day
and all will be good

you sit at the pool and think
live can be good
you treat yourself well
more often you should

the water is splashing
the wind in the trees
no other sounds, only
the rustling of leaves

make every day count
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over

you have a good time
going out with your friends
and you eat and you drink
the night never ends

you talk and you chill
you dance and you sing
you laugh and you feel
the life happening

take it in, live it out
and enjoy, while you can

one day this all will be over

live is not fair, it
puts you to the test
when things go wrong
does not let you rest

it bites you, it hits you,
it stings and it pains
it’s messed up by people
it hurts and it drains

the truth will prevail,
set you free again

one day this all will be over
all will be over
one day
one day
one day
and all will be good

A happier song

The other kid, he stole his toy
and actually made him cry.
He never gave him back his things
and laughed and coiled in joy.

I wish, that I could tell you, that
they finally got along
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

She thought, she had it all, with him
it all made sense at last
her loneliness ‚d be over soon,
forgotten ‚d be the past

I wish, that I could tell you, that
she hasn’t been left alone
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

They slowly stepped onto this deck
to take them far away.
They had just paid all, that they had,
and now were on their way

I wish, that I could tell you, that
they made it all along
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

She saw his eyes, she saw the hope,
that they were shining with
He saw her tears, he saw the truth
lurking underneath

I wish, that I could tell you, he
was fine and they were wrong
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

She’d left some time ago, but he
could never let her go.
With 92, she passed away,
he promised, to meet soon

I wish, that I could tell you, that
they met, where they’d belong
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

He once again climbed on his bike
for simply riding off,
to clear his mind and to forget
the last breath of his love

I wish, that I could tell you, that
he managed to stay strong
and I wish, this was a happier song
and I wish, this was a happier song

He read the letter, that he got,
out loud, and in his voice
you´d hear the pain, you’d hear the joy.
the tears went in his eyes

I wish, that I could tell you, what
these words were on his tongue,
but he then wrote a happier song
but he then wrote a happier song
