Daliah Lavi - Das bleibt immer ein Geheimnis (English translation)

English translation

That Will Always Be a Secret

Just why the old star, the good earth
Must forever revolve through heaven's blue
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
Why does the old man in his garden
Talk to the flowers as to his wife?
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
When we talk about love why do we pretend
There's only love between a man and a woman?
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
Why people can never live together in peace
Without walls, borders, barbed wire
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
Why does killing differ from killing (??)
One makes a show of it when in uniform
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
Every day all of us are in search of the truth
Will we be old and gray when finding it?
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
Yes, that will always be a secret
Nobody knows it quite correctly
 
Please alert me when spelling, print or other inconsistencies are spotted. When spotting them myself I tend to lapse into a *#@%* mood!

Thanks again Burghold!! Warum ist Töten und ist Töten nicht dasselbe? => This line is rather puzzling. How would you 'read' it? Are there different ways of killing, and is killing when in uniform to be tolerated, tolerable?

Ja, ich glaube, Sie haben den Sinn richtig erfasst. Es soll wohl ausgedrückt werden,
dass das Töten als Soldat als tolerierbar angesehen wird.
