English translation

Between her and me

All the white neon lamps
on the boulevard
come on just now.
 
I'm pretending
to go somewhere.
where? I don't really know.
 
What use is it
to try to learn
what she can be doing
with her nights on Saturday evenings?
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep;
I think only of this thing between her and me.
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep.
 
Amongst the people
in the flash of headlights
I'm like a passer-by.
 
So simply
unconsolable,
incognito.
 
What difference does it make,
the places she goes out to,
who she drinks with,
who she thinks of when she goes to sleep?
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep;
I think only of this thing between her and me.
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep;
I think only of this thing between her and me.
 
Who she shows herself to
when no-one is watching her?
Who she tells
everything and no matter what?
 
Where's she going tonight?
to which party in which bar
what do I do if I bump into her,
do I talk to her or do I clear off?
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep;
I think only of this thing between her and me.
 
I don't want to go out,
but I'm not going to stay at home.
I can't sleep;
I think only of this thing between her and me.
