Xavier Naidoo - Ich kenne nichts (English translation)

English translation

Ich kenne nichts

I could talk about you for days
Without mentioning your name not even once
Under pain or among tears
Your name is my alleviation
Each one of your movements are desirable
And each moment with you is worth living.
 
Nothing compares with the things that you give
With those you show us how you live, how you love.
 
I’ve never seen
I’ve never seen
Something as beautiful as you...
 
Beatiful days with you are precious
So precious as the way to the morning star
I celebrate them like a feast,
Where i always something new from you learn.
 
At the moment, knowing you, is the most beautiful thing
Knowing you is the best thing that i have.
Forgive me, but i say this again:
Mentioning your name is the most beautiful thing that i say.
 
I’ve never seen
I’ve never seen
Something as beautiful as you...
 
I’ve never seen
I’ve never seen
Something as beautiful as you...
 
I’ve never seen
I’ve never seen
Something as beautiful as you...
 
I’ve never seen
I’ve never seen
Something as beautiful as you...

"Without mentioning your name not even once" => strike the "not".

"With those you show us how you live, how you love." => Error in the source. It's "Mit dem was du zeigst *und* wie du lebst, wie du liebst", i.e. "with what you show, how you live, how you love".

"I celebrate them like a feast,
Where i always something new from you learn"
=>
"I celebrate them like a festive day
Where you teach me something new every time"

I'd also prefer "anything" over "something" in the chorus.
