Wasn’t it something predictable
That we are standing here again
Opposite each other
Again -- the lovers who were enemies
The enemies who want to be lovers
Isn’t it obvious -- I succumb to you
I succumb to you -- and I can’t stand it
Seeing it hurts, but not seeing is worse
Accepting it is painful, and finally, I live
I feel alive when I accept all there is

So I look into your eyes
And I don’t avoid meeting
With the truth

Wasn’t it something predictable
If I were older, wiser, braver
I would have already succumbed to it
Long ago -- years ago -- but I wanted
To be someone else than I am
I wanted to be a saint, to be above my feelings
I wanted to preserve your world as it was
I wanted to live as if I never felt you
As if I could ignore what I knew
Pretend to be blind
As if your scream isn’t a scream
Your pain isn’t pain
Your loneliness isn’t real
And it is not mere plain fear
That stops me from seeing how lonely I am
Without you

Wasn’t it something predictable
Oh, how smart I thought I was
Yet I missed the obvious

I love you
And I can never win over it
I love you
And while there is a chance
To unite with you
I must use it

Das Leben läuft weiter
die Jahren vergingen
Geglaubt zu finden aber
weiss man je wirklich was man sucht?

Die Türe hast du zugemacht,
verschlossen,
dich quer gestellt, mich rausgesetzt
aus deiner Seele, aus deinem Herz?
nie wieder komme ich da rein.

Doch vergisst man nie die Seele
die für einen Augenblick die Zeit anhielt
die Augen zum tanzen verführt
und das Herz auf Ewig geändert.

Hoffnung stirbt bekanntlich zuletzt
und hoffen werde ich bis am Ende,
dass unseren Augen und Herzen
eines Tages wieder tanzen
unbeschwert, liebevol und zart,
dass die Liebe einfach
wieder strömen darf.


When you can dream it, you can do it!
