Some precision of the German language is lost in the translation.

For example, "seht ihr mich?" is translated to "do you see me?," but in German they use the familiar plural second person. That means that they are addressing a "you" that consists in more than one person, and they are using a familiar way of addresing.

Sehen Sie mich? and Siehst du mich? would be equally translated to "do you see me,? although, for a german, the meaning would be different.

German

Ich will

This songs fits me quite well. I can learn some German, and express a feeling to a "lieve Engel".
