Eisbrecher - Ein Leben lang unsterblich (English translation)

English translation

A Undying Long Life

Versions: #1#2#3#4
Every fleeting moment
Can change your life
You need only see the signs
The old heroes look at you
Give yourself back the hope
It can only go further
 
You can be free
Just for you
Let go of everything
You do not need it
 
You are an undying for a lifetime
A moment in the storm of time
You are an undying for a lifetime
And you're all that you have left
A small eternity
You are a lifetime.
You are undying for a lifetime
 
Every person who touches you
Changes your story
You have to tell the story yourself
And all the ways that you go
Give you a sense
Only you can choose them yourself
 
You can be free
Just for you
Let go of everything
You do not need it
 
You are an undying for a lifetime
A moment in the storm of time
You are an undying for a lifetime
And you're all that you have left
A small eternity
You are a lifetime.
You are undying for a lifetime
 
With each passing day
Your heart beats always a little less
And in the end it's up to you
Wait not too long
Make all your dreams come true
In the here and now
 
You are an undying for a lifetime
A moment in the storm of time
You are an undying for a lifetime
And you're all that you have left
A small eternity
You are a lifetime.
You are undying for a lifetime

Hi Spiegelsaal,
There are some errors in your English text, the most noticeable are:
1. Leben lang unsterblich: Leben lang means “for a lifetime.”

2. Geben dir eine Richtung, du kannst sie nur selber wählen: „give you a directiion“ doesn’t work here, it’s got to be „give yourself…“ „selber“ refers to „du,“ – you can only choose it yourself

3. Du brauchst es nicht: you’re missing a word in your translation.

The best you can do is to go back over the whole text with a few online dictionaries; I find these ones the most helpful:

www.dict.cc
www.linguee.de

Du bist ein Leben lang unsterblich = You are immortal for a lifetime. I don't even know what "an undying" is supposed to be.
Sieh dir die alten Helden an = Look at the old heroes. Sieh dir [...] an is an imperative.

Wait, am I trying to correct a google translation here? C'mon....

This is bad, probably done by google.
