German: Revolverheld - Ich lass für Dich das Licht an (song)




Here is Christina with another great German song!
This time: "Ich lass für Dich das Licht an" ("I'll leave the light on for you") by the German rock band Revolverheld.




Here are the lyrics in German with an English translation:



Deutsch

Ich lass‘ für dich das Licht an

Wenn wir nachts nach Hause gehen,
Die Lippen blau vom Rotwein,
Und wir uns bis vorne an der Ecke
Meine große Jacke teilen.
Der Himmel wird schon morgenrot,
Doch du willst noch nicht schlafen.
Ich hole uns die alten Räder,
Und wir fahren zum Hafen.

Ich lass‘ für dich das Licht an,
Obwohl‘s mir zu hell ist.
Ich hör‘ mit dir Platten,
Die ich nicht mag.
Ich bin für dich leise,
Wenn du zu laut bist.
Renn‘ für dich zum Kiosk,
Ob Nacht oder Tag.
Ich lass‘ für dich das Licht an,
Obwohl‘s mir zu hell ist.
Ich schaue mir Bands an,
Die ich nicht mag.
Ich gehe mit dir

in die schlimmsten Schnulzen,
Ist mir alles egal.
Hauptsache, du bist da.

Ich würde meine Lieblingsplatten
Sofort für dich verbrennen.
Und wenn es für dich wichtig ist,
Bis nach Barcelona trampen.
Die Morgenluft ist viel zu kalt,
Und ich werde langsam heiser.
Ich seh‘ nur dich im Tunnelblick,
Und die Stadt wird langsam leiser.

Ich lass‘ für dich das Licht an,
Obwohl‘s mir zu hell ist.
Ich hör‘ mit dir Platten,
Die ich nicht mag.
Ich bin für dich leise,
Wenn du zu laut bist.
Renn‘ für dich zum Kiosk,
Ob Nacht oder Tag.
Ich lass‘ für dich das Licht an,
Obwohl‘s mir zu hell ist.
Ich schaue mir Bands an,
Die ich nicht mag.
Ich gehe mit dir in die schlimmsten Schnulzen,
Ist mir alles egal.
Hauptsache, du bist da.

Wenn wir nachts nach Hause gehen,
Die Lippen blau vom Rotwein,
Und wir uns bis vorne an der Ecke
Meine große Jacke teilen.

English Translation

I’ll leave the light on for you

When we head home at night
Our lips blue from red wine
And we both share my big jacket
Up to the corner ahead.
The sky is already red from the sunrise
But you don’t want to sleep yet.
I grab our old bikes
And we ride to the harbor.

I’ll leave the light on for you,
Even though it’s too bright for me.
I’ll listen to records with you
that I don’t like.
I’m quiet for you,
when you‘re too loud.
Run to the corner store for you,
Day or night.
I’ll leave the light on for you,
Even though it’s too bright for me.
I’ll go see bands
That I don’t like.
I’ll go with you

to see the worst tear-jerkers
It doesn’t matter to me.
The main thing is: you are there.

I would immediately burn my
Favorite records for you.
And if it’s important to you,
I‘ll hitchhike to Barcelona.
The morning air is much too cold
And I’m slowly getting hoarse.
I see only you with tunnel vision
And the city is slowly getting quieter.

I’ll leave the light on for you,
Even though it’s too bright for me.
I’ll listen to records with you
that I don’t like.
I’m quiet for you,
when you‘re too loud.
Run to the corner store for you,
Day or night.
I’ll leave the light on for you,
Even though it’s too bright for me.
I’ll go see bands
That I don’t like.
I’ll go with you to see the worst tear-jerkers
It doesn’t matter to me.
The main thing is: you are there.

When we head home at night
Our lips blue from red wine
And we both share my big jacket
Up to the corner ahead.

German: Madsen - Lass die Liebe regieren (song)




Here is Christina with another German song!
This time: "Lass die Liebe regieren" ("Let Love Reign") by Madsen.






Here are the lyrics in German with an English translation:

Lass die Liebe regieren 

Deutsch

Weil du erinnerst, 
weil du vergisst,
weil du verzeihen kannst 

und bist wie du bist,
weil du vermisst 
und weil du fehlst,
weil du zuhörst und erzählst,
weil dein Herz laut schlägt
und die Welt sich immer weiter dreht,
weil du fällst 

und immer wieder aufstehst,
merkst du, dass es dich gibt.

Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du gibst und vergibst,
weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du glühst und vergisst,
wirst du geliebt, lass es passieren,
lass die Liebe regieren.

Weil du weißt, woher du kommst,
was du gegeben hast und genommen,
weil purer Hass auf Dauer traurig macht
und das Leben viel mehr zu bieten hat,
Weil wir mit uns kämpfen 

und weil wir uns brauchen,
weil wir uns helfen 

und an uns glauben,
weil es wahre Freundschaft gibt.

Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du gibst und vergibst.
Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du glühst und vergisst,
wirst du geliebt, lass es passieren,
lass die Liebe regieren.

Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil es dich nur einmal gibt.
Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du gibst und vergibst.
Weil du liebst, weil du lebst,
weil du glühst und vergisst,
wirst du geliebt, lass es passieren,
lass die Liebe regieren.

Let Love Reign

English Translation

Because you remember, 
because you forget,
Because you can forgive 

and are who you are,
Because you miss 

and because you’re missed,
Because you listen and talk,
Because your heart beats loud
and the world keeps on turning,
Because you fall 

and always get up again,
you notice that you exist.

Because you love, because you live,
because you give and forgive,
because you love, because you live,
because you glow and forget,
you are loved, let it happen,
let love reign.

Because you know where you’re from,
what you’ve given and taken,
because pure hate is sad after awhile
and life has a lot more to offer,
because we fight with ourselves 

and because we need each other,
because we help each other 

and believe in us,
because true friendship exists.

Because you love, because you live,
because you give and forgive,
because you love, because you live,
because you glow and forget,
you are loved, let it happen,
let love reign.

Because you love, because you live,
because there’s only one you,
because you love, because you live,
because you give and forgive,
because you love, because you live,
because you glow and forget,
you are loved, let it happen,
let love reign.

Ich habe dir definitiv gesagt, dass du heute Abend babysitten musst!

German: Tokio Hotel - Durch den Monsun (song)




Here is Christina with another German song!
This time: "Durch den Monsun" ("Through the Monsoon") by Tokio Hotel




Here are the lyrics in German with English translation:

Deutsch

Durch den Monsun

Das Fenster öffnet sich nicht mehr.
Hier drin ist es voll von dir und leer
Und vor mir
geht die letzte Kerze aus.
Ich warte schon ‘ne Ewigkeit.
Endlich ist es jetzt so weit,
Da draußen ziehen
die schwarzen Wolken auf.

Ich muss durch den Monsun,
Hinter die Welt, ans Ende der Zeit,
Bis kein Regen mehr fällt,
Gegen den Sturm,
am Abgrund entlang.
Und wenn ich nicht mehr kann,
denk ich daran:
Irgendwann laufen wir zusamm’
Durch den Monsun,
dann wird alles gut.

Ein halber Mond versinkt
vor mir.
War der eben noch bei dir?
Und hält er wirklich,
was er mir verspricht?
Ich weiß, dass ich dich finden kann,
hör deinen Namen im Orkan.
Ich glaub, noch mehr dran glauben
kann ich nicht.

Ich muss durch den Monsun,
Hinter die Welt, ans Ende der Zeit,
Bis kein Regen mehr fällt.
Gegen den Sturm, am Abgrund entlang.
Und wenn ich nicht mehr kann,
denk ich daran:
Irgendwann laufen wir zusamm’,
Weil uns einfach nichts mehr halten kann,
Durch den Monsun.

Ich kämpf mich
Durch die Mächte hinter dieser Tür.
Werde sie besiegen, 

Und dann führen sie mich zu dir.
Dann wird alles gut.
Dann wird alles gut.
Wird alles gut
Alles gut

Ich muss durch den Monsun,
Hinter die Welt, ans Ende der Zeit,
Bis kein Regen mehr fällt,
Gegen den Sturm, am Abgrund entlang.
Und wenn ich nicht mehr kann,
denk ich daran:
Irgendwann laufen wir zusamm’,
Weil uns einfach nichts mehr halten kann
Durch den Monsun
Durch den Monsun

Dann wird alles gut
Durch den Monsun
Dann wird alles gut

English Translation

Through the Monsoon

The window won’t open any more.
Here inside it is full of you and empty.
And the last candle goes out
in front of me.
I wait forever.
Finally it’s at a point where
Outside the black clouds
are approaching.

I have to get through the monsoon,
Behind the world, to the end of time,
Until it’s not raining anymore.
Against the storm,
along the abyss,
And when I can’t go anymore,
I think that
Sometime we’ll run together
Through the monsoon,
and all will be well.

A half moon sinks (to insignificance)
in front of me.
Wasn’t it just with you?
And does it really keep
what it promises me?
I know I can find you.
I hear your name in the hurricane.
I believe, it’s impossible
to believe it more. 

I have to get through the monsoon,
Behind the world, to the end of time,
Until it’s not raining anymore.
Against the storm, along the abyss,
And when I can’t go anymore,
I think that
Sometime we’ll run together
Because nothing more can stop us
Through the monsoon.

I battle my way
Through the powers that be behind this door.
I’ll conquer them, 

And then they’ll lead me to you.
Then all will be well.
Then all will be well.
All will be well
All’s well.

I have to get through the monsoon,
Behind the world, to the end of time,
Until it’s not raining anymore.
Against the storm, along the abyss,
And when I can’t go anymore,
I think that
Sometime we’ll run together
Because nothing more can stop us
Through the monsoon.
Through the monsoon.

Then all will be well.
Through the monsoon.
Then all will be well.
