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.
