Night Shift (Nachtschicht)

traducere în Engleză

Night Shift

Night shift, night shift,
Night shift, night shift,
 
A dark band of clouds covers the land
Lightening descends from the sky shortly before sundown
On the horizon, buildings of a distant city ¹
A tempest raises its voice and thunders through the night ²
 
Always then, when everyone goes to sleep
Always then, the world shines in the new light
Always then, on the horizon of the city
Always then, the day’s work of the night begins
 
Night shift, night shift
 
Life pulsates where it’s calm during the day ³
Fog goes round through the streets, light descends from street lights; anonymous and undetected, people move through the city; every dream, which remained unfulfilled, becomes the day’s work of the night.
 
Always then, when everyone goes to sleep
Always then, the world shines in the new light
Always then, on the horizon of the city
Always then, the day’s work of the night begins
 
Always then, every still so small light,
finds the courage to rise up,
showing its brilliance at night
when the day is over
 
Night shift
 
Always then, when everyone goes to sleep
Always then, the world shines in the new light
Always then, on the horizon of the city
Always then, the day’s work of the night begins
 
Night shift, night shift

¹ Gewerke: an older German word for buildings.
² Tempest = thunderstorm
³ a more complete thought: when it’s night, life pulsates where it’s calm during the day
