The Way You Were (So wie du warst)

English translation

The Way You Were

Versions: #1#2#3
Don’t be afraid, I’m here for you
I'll hold your hand, and recollect ¹
Where did the years and days of happiness go?
They flew by; I'll hold you tight, and reminisce ²
Thoughts are passing by
I’m proud of time we shared
 
Refrain:
You stay with me, the way you were ³
Always with me, the way you were
Time tells the tale, the way you were
So much of you stays here the way you were
 
Let go my friend
And don’t worry
I’ll be there for those you love
I’m cherishing every brief moment
And point in time
No matter where you are
A whole lifetime’s passing by
I’m proud of time we shared
 
Refrain:
You stay with me, the way you were
Always with me, the way you were
Time tells the tale, the way you were
So much of you stays here the way you were
 
Let go my friend
And don’t worry
I’ll be there for those you love
 
The way you were, just like you
The way you were, just like you
 
You stay with me, the way you were
Always with me, the way you were
 
The way you were, just like you
The way you were, just like you
 
(The way you were, just like you
The way you were, just like you)
 
Let go my friend,
And don’t worry
I’ll be there for those you love

So wie du warst

Hab keine Angst, ich bin da für dich,
halte deine Hand, und erinner mich.
Wohin sind die Jahre und die Tage des Glücks,
Sie flogen vorbei, ich halt dich fest, und schau zurück.
Gedanken ziehen an mir vorbei,
ich bin stolz auf unsere Zeit

You should listen to An deiner Seite by Unheileg.

There's a killer version of Helene Fischer and Unheilig doing a duet of this song
