Handsome Stranger

Oh
 
Handsome stranger1
You are nice2 to me
Ah, handsome stranger
because I only dream of you
But by day you go
past with another woman
 
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow
 
You belong to her
And I am alone
Only in my dreams
can I be happy
be happy with you
Because you belong to me only in my dreams
 
And even if years pass
I know I will only love you
As long as I live there will be
no one else for me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
 
Handsome stranger1
At some point there will come a time
when my dream will become
finally a reality
Handsome stranger1
At that time, love will begin for us
 
And even if years pass
I know I will only love you
As long as I live there will be
no one else for me
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow
 
Handsome stranger1
At some point there will come a time
when my dream will become
finally a reality
Handsome stranger1
At that time, love will begin for us
 
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow

Das war schnell... Dankeschon

Well remember translation is idea to idea not wors for word. You did a good job

Aber gerne. Glad you thought so. I try to put other possible meanings in the footnotes in case someone is learning the language or so, but I absolutely agree with you there Regular smile

I try to translate idea to idea and fit it in with what most English speakers would understand without losing the meaning

We are on the same page, I just include extra possible meanings for language learners like past me I guess.

Original lyrics reformatted.

>"At that time, life will begin for us" =
At that time, love will begin for us
