Nena: In meinem Leben

This is the second part of the Falling series, following "Falling Down Under".To start with, I wanted to share this song with you which fits so perfectly. Sorry, it is in German but Nena (99 Red Balloons, for those who've been around in the 80s) must be one of my favourite artists and this song is just so beautiful.
The translation is below!!!

I will let you know once the first chapters are up and I hope you enjoy Nena!

In my life, I have flown many times,

I have fallen deeply, and sometimes I have drowned.

I have won and I have lost,

And I have died and I was re-born.

I have given, and I have taken.

And we have found each other,

And we have come so far.

I am so close to me and again so alien,

That has something of being lonely,

And that nobody knows me.

I don't want to be poor, and money doesn't make me rich,

Sometimes life is hard, and most of the times I find it easy.

I have cried and I have laughed,

And finally found out, what makes me more beautiful.

I have drunk, and I have smoked,

And I have completely used up all my energy.

And when I get back on my feet,

There's always life again,

There's always the sun again.

And here you are, you hold my hand and laugh,

Because you know me better than I know myself.

I am in love with you,

My life, I don't want to imagine without you.

In my life, I have often flown,

I have also lied, and betrayed you and I.

I have loved, and was drunk from it.

I flew up to the sky, and sank so very deep.

And I let myself go, and then stand up again.

And I live so healthy, and I take drugs as well,

I count the years, and then I don't count them.

I stand in the darkness,

And I like the light.

And here you are, holding my hand and laugh,

Because you know me better than I know myself.

I am in love with you,

My life I don't want to imagine without you.

I love some people, and some love me,

And those who don't love me, I do not miss.

I love my children, and I love you,

And sometimes I don't feel anything, then I don't even feel myself.

I wish for peace and serenity,

A heart that is always warm,

I am not ready yet.

And freedom feels so good to me,

I sometimes hurt myself.

I feel strong, even if right now I'm not standing so upright.

And my fear of dying, disappears into nothing,

Slowly dissolves, because life calls for me.

And here you are, holding my hand and laugh,

Because you know me better than I know myself.

I am in love with you,

My life I don't want to imagine without you.

With you I want to go on and I follow you,

And you always also take from me.

I am in love with this life,

And I will stay here, for just as long again, with you.


Well, I guess I'm not the best at translating songs. Sorry... I hope you still enjoyed it.
