Silbermond - Ich bereue nichts (English translation)

English translation

I don't repent of anything

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5
I hold your hand as long as I can
And line up for the last lap.
 
We both knew, and still repressed it until the end,
That time cannot be defeated.
 
Perhaps it would have been better if it never happend this way,
But "perhaps" is such a cowardly word.
 
We've always fighted and not given away any grain of sand
And now we're standing here.
 
And I don't repent of anything.
Not a single step nor any moment of it.
Even if it's lost,
Even if it doesn't satisfy us,
It still wasn't all for nothing.
Regret nothing of it all,
Nothing of it all.
 
Time runs against us, the last grain falls silently,
And the lap is slowly over.
 
We've build on sand, it took us a lot of strength,
But all of it was worthy for me.
And I thank you for every day beside you
 
Because I don't repent of anything.
Not a single step nor any moment of it.
Even if it's lost,
Even if it doesn't satisfy us,
It still wasn't all for nothing.
It wasn't all for nothing.
 
I don't regret any mistaken word nor any moment of it all.
I don't take back any step
Because I don't repent of anything.
 
I don't repent of anything.
 
I don't repent of anything,
Of anything of it all.
 
I don't repent of anything.

Hello everybody!
The english lyrics above displayed intend to be not just a transliteration from the german text into english words, but to be the result of taking the work a little further by trying to develope an english text to the meaning of the german words. I hope I reasonably succeeded at that task.
I heartfully thank you in anticipation for your feedback on this particular subject.
And keep on singing! Regular smile ♪♫
