German: Paul van Dyk and Peter Heppner - Wir sind wir (song)




Here is Christina with another German song!
This time: "Wir sind wir" ("We Are Who We Are") by Paul van Dyk and Peter Heppner.




Here are the lyrics in German with English translation:

Deutsch
Wir sind wir

Tag um Tag, Jahr um Jahr,
Wenn ich durch diese Straßen geh,
Seh ich, wie die Ruinen dieser Stadt
Wieder zu Häusern auferstehen.

Doch bleiben viele Fenster leer,
Für viele gab es keine Wiederkehr.
Und über das, was grad noch war,
Spricht man heute
lieber gar nicht mehr.

Doch ich frag, ich frag mich, wer wir sind.
Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
Aufgeteilt, besiegt und doch,
Schließlich leben wir ja noch.
Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
Das kanns doch nicht gewesen sein.

Keine Zeit zum Traurigsein.
Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
Wir sind wir.

Auferstanden aus Ruinen dachten wir,
Wir hätten einen Traum vollbracht.
40 Jahre zogen wir an einem Strang,
aus Asche haben wir Gold gemacht.

Jetzt ist mal wieder alles anders,
Und was vorher war,
ist heute nichts mehr wert.
Jetzt können wir haben, was wir wollen,
Aber wollten wir nicht eigentlich viel mehr?
Und ich frag, ich frag mich, wo wir stehen.
Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
Wieder Eins in einem Land,
Superreich und abgebrannt.

Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
So schnell kriegt man uns nicht klein,
Keine Zeit zum Bittersein.
Wir sind wir. Wir stehen hier.
Wir sind wir.

Wir sind wir.
Aufgeteilt, besiegt und doch,
Schließlich gibt es uns ja immer noch.

Wir sind wir.
Und wir werden‘s überstehen,
Denn das Leben muss ja weitergehen.

Wir sind wir.
Das ist doch nur ein schlechter Lauf.
So schnell geben wir doch jetzt nicht auf.
English Translation
We are who we are

Day by day, year by year
When I walk through these streets
I see the ruins of this city
Rise again as buildings.

But many windows remain empty
For many there was no return.
And about the way it used to be
One would rather not talk
About it any more today.

But I wonder, I wonder, who we are.
We are who we are! We stand here!
Divided, defeated, but
We are still alive!
We are who we are. We stand here.
That cannot have been it

There’s no time to be sad
We are who we are! We stand here!
We are who we are!

Risen from the ruins we thought
We had made a dream come true.
For 40 years we pulled in one direction
From ashes we made gold.

Now everything is different again
And what used to be
Is now worth nothing.
Now we can have what we want
But didn’t we actually want a lot more?
And I wonder, I wonder where we stand.
We are who we are! We stand here.
United again in one country
Super rich and completely broke

We are who we are! We stand here!
You can’t get us down so easily
There’s no time to be bitter.
We are who we are! We stand here!
We are who we are!

We are who we are!
Divided, defeated, but
We are still around.

We are who we are!
We will endure
Because life must go on.

We are who we are!
This is just a bad run
We won’t give up that quickly now.
