Your face - It is reflected in the rain puddles
Ey you can even wear gray
When i'm once more not close to you
You wait for me with open arms
In your streets I can lose myself so wunderful
And whatever I'm looking for
I find it here
 
Oh home, beatiful how you laugh to me
You're always there, when I have nobody to talk to
Oh home, how you are looking again,
I always carry you, always with me
Like a souvenir
 
You and me, alone at night in the neon light
Sometimes I dance with you
Come, don't act like that
I know you inside and out
You know way too much about me
Sometimes you're loud, sometimes you're silent
Sometimes you're tired, but not alone
If you want to, you can warm me
Or be freezing
 
Oh home, beatiful how you laugh to me
You're always there, when I have nobody to talk to
Oh home, how you are looking again,
I always carry you, always with me
Like a souvenir
 
Thanks!

Nice one, Michiel, I made one or two very minor edits for you:

Your face – it’s being reflected in rain puddles
You can even pull off wearing gray
When I'm away from you once again
You wait for me with open arms
In your streets I can lose myself so wonderfully
And whatever I'm looking for
I find it here

Oh home, it’s beatiful how you laugh at me
You're always there, when I have nobody to talk to
Oh home, how you are looking again, *
I always carry you always, always with me
Like a souvenir

You and me, alone at night in the neon light
Sometimes I dance with you
Come on, don't act like that
I know you inside and out
And you know way too much about me
Sometimes you're loud, sometimes you're silent
Sometimes tired, but never alone
If you want to, you can warm me
Or be ice cold

Oh home, it’s beatiful how you laugh at me
You're always there, when I have nobody to talk to
Oh home, how you are looking again, *
I always carry you always, always with me
Like a souvenir

* This cannot be translated – “Wie Du wieder aussiehst” is typically something to say to a friend / family member when you meet them again and they don’t look their best
