Born to live (Geboren um zu leben)

German

Geboren um zu leben

 
Es fällt mir schwer,
ohne Dich zu leben,
jeden Tag, zu jeder Zeit,
einfach alles zu geben.
Ich denk' so oft
zurück an das was war,
an jedem so geliebten, vergangenen Tag.
 
Ich stell' mir vor,
dass du zu mir stehst,
und jeden meiner Wege
an meiner Seite gehst.
Ich denke an so vieles,
seitdem du nicht mehr bist;
denn du hast mir gezeigt,
wie wertvoll das Leben ist.
 
Wir waren geboren um zu leben,
mit den Wundern jener Zeit;
sich niemals zu vergessen,
bis in alle Ewigkeit.
Wir waren geboren um zu leben,
für den einen Augenblick,
bei dem jeder von uns spürte,
wie wertvoll Leben ist.
 
Es tut noch weh,
wieder Neuem Platz zu schaffen,
mit gutem Gefühl
etwas Neues zuzulassen.
In diesem Augenblick
bist du mir wieder nah,
wie an jedem so geliebten, vergangenen Tag.
 
Es ist mein Wunsch,
wieder Träume zu erlauben,
ohne Reue nach vorn
in eine Zukunft zu schauen.
Ich sehe einen Sinn,
seitdem du nicht mehr bist,
denn du hast hat mir gezeigt,
wie wertvoll mein Leben ist.
 
Wir waren geboren um zu leben,
mit den Wundern jener Zeit;
sich niemals zu vergessen,
bis in alle Ewigkeit.
Wir waren geboren um zu leben,
für den einen Augenblick,
weil jeder von uns spürte,
wie wertvoll Leben ist.
 
Wir waren geboren um zu leben…

Born to live

Versions: #1#2#3#4
It's hard for me
To live without you
Every day at every time
Just to give everything
I so often think
Back to the past
To the lovely past day
I imagine
That you support me
And on every way
Are at my side
I think of so much
Since you don't exist anymore
Because you have shown me
How valuable life is
 
We were born to live
With the miracles of time
Never to forget onself
Up to eternity
We were born to live
For the one moment
Because everyone of us felt
How valuable life is
 
It still hurts
To create new space
To allow something
With a good feeling
At this moment
You are close to me again
Like on that lovely past day
It is my wish
To allow dreams again
To look into future
Without regret
I see a meaning
Since you've been gone
Because you have show me
How valuable my life is

Beautiful!

I confess I had never liked German, because I thought it is an ugly language and sounds horrible, but after listening to this song I completely changed my mind, this song is so beautiful.

Now I saw the translation I see that the beautiful melody lives up to the rich meaning, really awesome! German song that I most like.

@dowlenon1: To be honest, the more I listen to various music from all over the world, the more convinced I am that there are no "ugly" languages. Some are more or less melodic than others, some have a more sophisticated pronounciation or vocabulary, we view some as strange because they don't resemble our language... but each is stil beautiful in its own way.

That's so true, Precious. From this song I also learned there is not such 'ugly' languages, as I used to find, I totally agree with you.
