Baby it's dark
I can't trust my eyes
They won't adjust
To a world I despise
Don't be afraid
I'm too lazy to quit
Girl, I got time
To deal with it
 
We promised each other
To die for one another
Raising the sun
Which shines in our eyes
Caught in a fall
Dropped from the heaven
Our timing was perfect, baby
Let's just blame it on time
 
We carried each other
Friends and lovers
Lost in the darkness
Breathed each other like air
Hit by the truth
With the innocence of children
But I thank the lord each day
You are ever here
 
You flooded every room with sunshine
Every fear you turned to hope
The endless summer turned to eternal nightfall
Brave and gentle, darling
Life isn't fair
 
We danced the movie
Into the silver light
From a golden balcony
Fell into the night
And there we layed and slept
Drunk on all we`d seen
Nothing forbidden
Midsummer dream
 
You flooded every room with sunshine
Every fear you turned to hope
The endless summer turned to eternal nightfall
Brave and gentle, darling
It was always as home
 
The way you walked
Without hesitation
Your poetry echoes through my soul
Staring down on, praising our fortune
And until the end darling,
Always in control
Always in control
 
I've got to stay
I've got to wait
Got a new direction
and a brand new day
 
And I carry you close
Deep in my soul
I hold you safe 'till the last curtain falls
I hold you so close 'till the last curtain falls

The Way ist die englische Version von Der Weg.

"The Way" ist bisher nur auf der "I Walk"-DVD erschienen.
In Deutschland ist die DVD nicht auf dem Markt.

The Way

Baby it's dark

Mich hat die englische Version von "Der Weg" sehr berhrt, weil sie mir noch persnlicher erscheint, als das deutsche Original. Mit Zeilen wie: Baby it's dark..., Girl I got time to deal with it..., Brave and gently darling..., sorgt Herbert bei mir fr Gnsehaut.

Es gibt noch eine weitere englische Version von "The Way" die Peter Giesbers, am 5.12.2012 bei You Tube verffentlicht hat, dazu schreibt er bei You Tube:
"Herbert Grnemeyer originally wrote the song "Der Weg" after the tragic passing of his wife in 1998. It's one of the most moving songs I have heard."

Die bersetzung:
"Herbert Grnemeyer hat den Original Song "Der Weg" geschrieben, nach dem tragischen Tod seiner Frau im Jahre 1998. Es ist eines der bewegendsten Lieder, die ich je gehrt habe."

Also ich finde das sehr gelungen. Das Original hre ich inzwischen wirklich nicht mehr gern, aber die englische Version find ich wieder hrenswert. Besonders dieses Lost in the darkness ist wunderschn ♥

Geht mir auch so. In deutsch hre ich es eigentlich gar nicht mehr (wie fast alle Lieder von "Mensch") aber in Englisch ist es wirklich wieder hrenswert... Und seine Stimme
