Three Years Long (Drei Jahre Lang)

English translation

Three Years Long

Six o’clock in the morning
 
They are unlocking the cell now
 
Then begins the daily routine.
 
And for me without you a new morning begins
 
For both of us eternity is three years long.
 
Here I sit writing you the first letter
 
I feel good
 
I take courage
 
Think positive
 
And I tell myself every day
 
that we cannot be separated
 
Even if today as well that eternity is three years long
 
And every night I dream of you and say:
 
I will wait for you until the last day.
 
Here we go through all the usual routines
 
Tom is now at seven opening the pub.
 
Sometimes I sit there
 
watching in silence old friends
 
and saying to myself
 
I must be strong
 
Three years long
 
Believe it – just like me – that we cannot be separated
 
Even if today as well that eternity is three years long
 
And every night I dream of you and say:
 
I will wait for you until the last day.
 
Ten o’clock at night
 
Now turn off the light
 
Close your eyes and dream of me
 
And for me without you a great longing begins
 
For both of us eternity is three years long.
 
For both of us eternity is three years long
 
For both of us eternity is three years long.
