Herbert Grönemeyer - Wäre ich einfach nur feige (English translation)

English translation

If only I were a coward

If only I were a coward,
I'd keep out of many (people's) way
Were I to not take sides
and life would be easier
 
Were I to accept my worst fears
also others I'd include,
I'd be able to forgive myself more
Line up mistakes next to mistakes
 
Because every dream collects its toll
Every wish sometimes falls flat
Every fight has an end
Every stone can be turned
And even the strongest fail
 
Each weakness would be a medal
and I'd no longer be a dreamprince
I wouldn't have to look hysterically handsome
and wouldn't run after each trend
 
I'd have the right to let myself go
Everyone would know: he's crazy again
Wouldn't be unbelievable
I'd let myself get sidetracked
 
Because every dream collects its toll
Every wish sometimes falls flat
Every fight has an end
Every stone can be turned
And even the strongest fail
 
Every anxiety disappears
Every alarm gives up as well
Were I to put my head aside
I'd fight less often
'Coz the weaker gives in
 
I'd no longer mimic Tarzan
If I abstained from muscle-game
I'd be of such obscurity
I'd be of such dispensability
With myself at peace
No plan, no goal
 
Because every dream collects its toll
Every wish sometimes falls flat
Every fight has an end
Every stone can be turned
And even the strongest fail
 
Every anxiety disappears
Every alarm gives up as well
Were I to put my head aside
I'd fight less often
'Coz the weaker gives in
 
Were I to put my head aside
I'd have glorious times
and everything would be more fun
