Ein Platz für englische Gedichte, Verse, Zitate .....

Ich mach mal den Anfang, hoffe, dass noch mehr dazu
kommt. Würde mich sehr darüber freuen.

Vor zwei Wochen hatte ich das Lied von Grönemeyer
"Du bist die" mal in Englisch übersetzt auf eine weite Reise geschickt....

AND IF YOU SIMPLY LIVE WITH ME
IF YOU IGNORE MY MISTAKES
IF YOU TELL ME SOMETHING NOW AND THEN
AND IF YOU DO NOT LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT ME
THEN I TAKE YOU INTO THE DUTY
AND RELEASE YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN
LEND YOU YOU MY HEART, LEND YOU MY EAR
AND GIVE YOU MY CONSOLATION

I WOULD LIKE TO BE YOUR PLACE OF REFUGE
THE CENTER OF YOUR SHIP
YOUR PERFECT SKY-BLUE
AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU MISS
GIVE YOUR DREAM THE FINAL TOUCH
I CANNOT PROMISE ANYTHING
FULFILL ONLY EVERY SECOND WISH
AND LEAVE YOU AS YOU ARE

YOU ARE THE ONE, WHO BREATHES ME, WHO FLIES ME,
WHO AGITATES ME AND WHO TOUGHENS ME
YOU ARE THE ONE WHO FINDS ME, WHO MAKES ME FALL IN LOVE
IF YOU ARE THE ONE (IF YOU ARE YOU)
YOU ARE EVERYTHING THAT COUNTS

AND IF THE LONGING ABANDONS YOU
AND THE FEELING IN YOUR STOMACH GETS FLAT
AND IF THE HOPE AT LAST GETS LOST
AND ALSO THE FEELINGS DECLINE
THEN GIVE ME A SHORT SIGNAL
AND SAY, IT IS OVER
THEN I HOLD YOU A LAST TIME
AND SET YOU FREE AGAIN

YOU ARE THE ONE, WHO BREATHES ME, WHO FLIES ME,
WHO AGITATES ME AND WHO TOUGHENS ME,
THE ONE WHO FINDS ME, WHO MAKES ME FALL IN LOVE
IF YOU WANT, YOU ARE EVERYTHING THAT COUNTS

AND IF WE ARE FAITHFUL ONLY TOWARDS OURSELVES
AND IF WE DISPUTE ONLY IN THE LIGHT
AND IF THE WIND DOES NOT CARRY WELL
I STRONGLY RELY ON YOU
I WANT THAT YOU SATISFY MY LONGING
THAT YOU SWIM WITH ME ALL DISTANCES
NO MATTER WHAT THE MORNING WILL HAVE IN MIND FOR US
IT WILL HAVE TO BE DISCUSSED WITH US

YOU ARE THE ONE, WHO REFLECTS ME, WHO READS ME,
WHO FEELS ME AND WHO HOLDS ME,
THE ONE WHO GROUNDS ME, WHO PULLS ME
IF YOU WANT, YOU ARE EVERYTHING THAT COUNTS

YOU ARE THE ONE, WHO BEGINS ME, WHO PUSHES ME,
WHO UNDERSTANDS ME AND WHO SEIZES ME,
YOU ARE THE ONE WHO ARRANGES ME, WHO THINKS ME
IF YOU ARE THE ONE, YOU ARE THE ONE BECAUSE IT FITS
IF YOU WANT, YOU ARE EVERYTHING BECAUSE IT FITS

As long as i live


My dreams are a mountainside
and my wishes are a crystal spring.
Spear pointed my ideals
and my soul a shining shield.

As long as high I am gazing,
i’am one with the untrained mountain.
There alone and forgotten...
drinking from the oblivion’s fountain.

And while I am closed in to my silence,
then i will search only for You.
Forever the light I ‘ll follow on.
as long as I live, it is true!

from Chris - Greece

February
(Dar Williams)

I threw your keys in the water, I looked back
They'd frozen half way down in the ice
They froze up so quickly, the keys and their owners
Even after the anger, it all turned silent and
The everyday turned solitary
So we came to February

First we forgot where we'd planted those bulbs last year
Then we forgot that we'd planted at all
Then we forgot what plants are altogether
And I blamed you for my freezing and forgetting and
The nights were long and cold and scary
Can we live through February?

You know I think Christmas was a long red glare
Shot up like a warning, we gave presents without cards
And then the snow
And then the snow came, we were always out shoveling
And we'd drop to sleep exhausted
Then we'd wake up, and it's snowing

And February was so long that it lasted into March
And found us walking a path alone together
You stopped and pointed and you said, "That's a crocus"
And I said "What's a crocus?" and you said "It's a flower"
I tried to remember but I said "What's a flower?"
You said "I still love you"

The leaves were turning as we drove to the hardware store
My new lover made me keys to the house
And when we got home, well we just started chopping wood
Because you never know how the next will be
And we'll gather all our arms can carry
I have lost to February

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight,
Or gazed at the sun in the fading light?
You better slow down,
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short,
the music won't last.
Do you run through the day
on a fly?
When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
do you lie in your bed
with the next hundred chores
running through your head?
You'ld better slow down,
don't dance so fast.
Time is short,
the music won't last.
Ever told your child
we'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
let a good friendship die
cause you never had time
to call and say "Hi"?
You'ld better slow down,
don't dance so fast.
Time is short,
the music won't last.
When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift ......
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower.
Hear the music
before the song is over.
