And Jay-Z sings us a song

There is a time to run
There is a time to rest
There are days on which you have to make an effort
To do the simplest things
 
There is an answer to everything
There is a number of everything
But I ask myself this evening
How often do I have a choice?
 
Chorus
And how often does your heart beat?
How often do you look skywards?
And how often do you get up?
And look forward to it?
And Jay-Z sings us a song
 
And how often does your heart beat?
How often do you look skywards?
In the beauty of the moment,
When you laugh and yell and run
And Jay-Z sings us a song
 
My hands are constantly moving
As long as I can think, I’m nervous
That’s because I hope
That nothing happens to you
 
There is a time to pray
There is a time to stand
But today is the day to kneel
In order to look you in the eye again
 
Chorus
 
And how often does your heart beat?
How often do you look skywards?
In the beauty of the moment,
When you laugh and yell and run
And Jay-Z sings us a song
 
More power than courage
With more Schnaps than blood
In your eyes, tumbling through the night
In flight, immune to sleep
 
Signs of life now and then*
Floating in songs
You have 99 problems
We are every single one!
 
Through crises, bars and booze
My grouchy form
Was it always just straight words
Slurred through sharp teeth?
 
You were my ketamine, my amphetamine
My back and forth,
Euphoria and sugar-sweet lethargy!
 
Means and ends are equal
Just questions that remain
Paid for the comedy
But stayed for the drama!
 
And Jay-Z played on the radio again and again
His song from the big city
Reminding us again how small we are!
 
Chorus
 
And how often does your heart beat?
And how often does your heart beat?
And how often does your heart beat?
 
And how often does your heart beat?
[Background vocals (2x)]
My hands are constantly moving
As long as I can think, I’m nervous
That’s because I hope
That nothing happens to you

*This is really difficult to translate into English, as there doesn't seem to be a suitable word or phrase commonly used.

Hi,

Is it possible to translate "um dich auf Augenhöhe wiederzusehen" into
"to see you again on eye level"? Just wanna know; your English seems to be better than mine.

I'd say that works as well, I think to make it sound totally comfortable in English you'd put 'again' at the end, so 'to see you on eye level again', but otherwise I think that fits quite well there. While we're discussing it, do you have any suggestion as to what 'Lebenslichter' could be translated to?

Thanks; yes, the word order - my big problem!
:bigsmile:

"Lebenslichter" I would simply translate with "life lights". But what shall this be: "Life lights floating in songs"?! I have no idea!

That's what I'd use if it were just the word on its own, but I have no idea how to show what it means in this context!

It could be, but I'm still not entirely sure...
