Sister

Hello,
Sister, hello.
Not too much time is left
For us to stay together.
Sister, hello.
 
When we both look at the heaven,
whence bright night starts ought to come out.
When we both look at the mountains,
whence friendly help ought to come out.
Well, neither the new day sun, nor this full moon at night time,
They won't be stopping us, they won't be stopping us.
 
Hello, damn helter-skelter,
Sister, hello.
Not too much time is left
For us to stay together.
Sister, hello.
 
Sister, try to forgive me - I didn't sing cleanly sometimes,
Sister, try to forgive me, that I wasn't always honest,
Sister, try to forgive me - I didn't want to hurt you,
I did not know how to love, but I wanted to be loved so much.
 
Hello, damn helter-skelter,
Sister, hello.
Not too much time is left
For us to stay together.
Sister, hello.
 
And when we come in here, we look at the heaven,
We look at the heaven, we stare into it for so long.
Maybe, this is just a picture, illusion or painting by artist,
But, maybe all that is the truth, most likely all that is the truth then.
 
Hello, damn helter-skelter,
Sister, hello.
We don't have too much time
To stay together here.
Sister, hello.
 
All this will end in a sheer joy,
All this will end in a sheer joy,
All this will end in a sheer joy,
All this will end in a sheer joy,
All this will end in blessed happiness,
Believe me, happiness's waiting for us.
 
Hello, damn helter-skelter,
Sister, hello.
We don't have too much time
To stay together here.
Sister, hello.
