Der Deserteur (Herr Präsident)

Herr Präsident
ich schreibe Ihnen diesen Brief,
den Sie vielleicht lesen werden,
wenn Sie dafür die Zeit finden.
Ich erhielt gerade
meinen Einberufungsbescheid,
um in den Krieg zu ziehen,
noch vor Mittwoch Abend.
 
Herr Präsident,
ich will das nicht tun,
ich bin nicht auf der Erde,
um arme Leute zu töten.
Ich will Sie damit nicht ärgern
ich muss Ihnen nur sagen,
meine Entscheidung steht fest,
ich werde mich dem entziehen.
 
Seit ich auf der Welt bin
habe ich meinen Vater sterben sehen,
sah ich meine Brüder nicht zurückkehren
und meine Kinder weinen.
Meine Mutter hat so gelitten,
dass wir sie beerdigen mussten
und ihr Bomben egal
und Würmer gleichgültig sind.
 
Als ich Gefangener war,
hat man mir meine Frau gestohlen,
man hat mir meine Seele geklaut
und meine ganze liebe Vergangenheit.
Morgen, zu früher Stunde,
da werde ich meine Tür
den verlorenen Jahre
vor der Nase zuschlagen.
Ich werde mich auf den Weg machen.
 
Ich werde mein Leben bettelnd
auf den Straßen Frankreichs verbringen,
von der Bretagne bis zur Provence
und ich werde den Leuten zurufen:
'Weigert euch zu gehorchen,
verweigert euch der Sache,
zieht nicht in den Krieg,
weigert euch wegzugehen.'
 
Wenn es nötig ist, Blut zu vergießen,
dann gehen Sie und geben Sie das ihre
Sie sind scheinheilig,
Herr Präsident!
Sollten sie mich verfolgen (lassen),
verständigen Sie Ihre Gendarmen,
dass ich unbewaffnet bin,
und dass sie werden schießen können,
und dass sie werden schießen können.

In Galilee (atop a Hill)

Versions: #1
In , atop a hill
There sits a watchman, flute on his lips.
He plays the song of shepherds
To the lamb, the kid, and a lost foal.
 
He plays, in greeting:
Come, come to me!
For there are melodies in the flute's mouth,
There are legends here in Galilee.
 
There once was an ancient hero,
Who cleaved rocks, pushed boulders,
In a song full of life out he went to battle
Against a large and mighty crowd.
 
''Tis good to die' – said he –
'On the watch for our homeland.'
There once was a riddle-hero
And had he.

Alone/By Myself

I will be survive without your love...
I won't look up to the sky,
Nor will I cry over you...
You and not I
Will be the one to beg for forgiveness.
You'll suffer such great pains
Because, all alone, I'm much better!
 
I don't need your love
Nor one more night's frenzy.
I don't need the warmth
Of a pair of lips that don't know what to express.
 
I've know what I feel for a long time
And I keep, deep inside, my disaffection.
And as you see: I don't even think about you!
Now, I'm the one left...
 
[Chorus:]
All alone,
I will be survive without your love...
I won't look up to the sky,
Nor will I ever cry over you...
You and not I
Will be the one to beg for forgiveness.
You'll suffer such great pains
Because, all alone, I'm much better!

 
Your time is over,
And don't think that you still have a chance to go back.
And don't try to sell passion to me
For, between you and I, there's nothing left to say.
 
I've know what I feel for a long time
And I keep, deep inside, my disaffection.
And as you see: I don't even think about you!
Now, I'm the one left...
 
[Chorus:]
All alone,
I will be survive without your love...
I won't look up to the sky,
Nor will I ever cry over you...
All alone,
Without your love I'll be free to choose...
A new direction
Towards a brand new sun
That will shine without you!

 
(Alone...)
All alone with my dignity intact!
(Alone...)
All alone with my own heart!
(Celebrate...)
That I still feel alive
Without thinking anymore!
 
Aaaah...
 
Without your love I'll be free to choose...
A new direction
Towards a brand new sun
That will shine without you!

 
All alone... With my heart...
(Alone...)
All alone... I feel alive!
(Aaaah... Alone...)
 
All alone,
Without your love I'll be free to choose...
A new direction
Towards a brand new sun
That will shine without you!

 
All by myself...
(Alone...)
All alone...

My Heart Is Bleeding

Everything is over:
I won't talk about you ever again.
No matter how hard it is, no,
I won't keep insisting!
Your left
My heart in tatters,
With my soul completely broken,
Facing sorrow all alone.
 
And now you come, you're back
Without a single explanation,
Like a strange entity
Without an inner life.
I don't know who you are anymore,
What has happened to you
And my heart is still bleeding...
 
[Chorus:]
And I regret having loved you,
I regret thinking
That you'd need to believe in me.
I know I'm not perfect
Because, if I were,
I wouldn't have cried so much for you!
But feeling is so worth it,
As I look up and move on...

 
Everything has started anew
And today, I must tell you
That there's nothing left for me to lose

Suddenly, you come back,
you come in, you touch, you walk

Beautiful one who holds my life...

Versions: #1
Beautiful one who holds my life
captive in your eyes and has
robbed me from my soul
with a gracious smile,
come soon to my rescue
or I shall die.
 
(bis)
...
 
Your beauties and your graces
and your divine speeches
have seized my citadel
and caused so much pain
by filling my heart
with a loving ardour.
 
(bis)
...
 
Should you remain unmoved
by a fiery ordeal,
should your beauty sadden me
and deny me its help,
rather than love and suffer so
I would sooner die
 
(bis)
...

A blizzard sweeps along the street

A wild blizzard sweeps along the city street
Behind the blizzard follows my precious and sweet
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me just look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
Be it on your pleasant beauty full of grace
Be it on your white like marble pleasant face
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
Your beauty even drove me to insanity
It dried up a handsome fellow like me
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
You just wait, just wait my beautiful, my life
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight
Let me take a look at you, my joy, throughout the tonight

Autumn

The leaves are already falling in the avenues and gardens
the clouds already ride a convoy in the heavens
and the last star there is shy
Autumn...Autumn...Autumn...
 
The last of the birds have already gone on their way
and they carry with them the last songs
and the wind describes in thousands of his strings
Autumn...Autumn...Autumn...
 
Ships sailing into distant days
sailing, sailing to the unknown horizons
struggling, the sea can no longer wave
Autumn...Autumn...Autumn...
 
The city is already sinking into a deep quiet
still carrying in its heart an old prayer
still carrying in its heart, but in vain, but in vain
Autumn...Autumn...Autumn...
 
Tired and spent in shadowy gardens
and all is so silent, the words have fallen mum
already we do not love, the one that loved
Autumn...Autumn...Autumn...

Out Slowly We Went

Out slowly we went, pale was the night,
The lights flickered in the distance
And you were as beautiful as your eyes,
While the tears were restrained in them.
 
The jackal howled, and to the vineyard you went,
And your tear dropped like resin,
And you remembered those hours before
We went out through the narrow path to battle.
 
And you remembered our laughter, so like a brook,
And you remembered a dance and harmonica,
And you remembered that stack of hay,
And the touch of his hand...
 
And if you remained, and the loneliness embraces
And you slowly pace through the vineyards,
You shall wait, then, oh so quietly,
We separated and smiled with a glance.

Esther

Again I take time
Between Peki'in and Beit Jann.
Hints of redemption
And an army in action.
There, I knew love
She was so good.
Her eyes like a pair of doves
She does not read the newspapers.
Nothing matters to her,
She goes out at night to the square.
She lights the lantern,
And waits for her one and only.
 
Who is it that comes in the form of a cloud, pillar of smoke?
All the night at the fire
I will ask for our souls
One day everything will blossom, the heart of the world will open.
 
How her face changes
As an act of magic.
The neighbors whisper:
She has dealings with demons.
When the moon becomes full
The light rises on her face.
In the morning, she goes out
To the wadi to collect
Wild herbs and figs
She will bring to the children.
Mystery on the table,
In the yard a little lamb.
 
Who is it that comes in the form of a cloud, pillar of smoke?
All the night at the fire
I will ask for our souls
One day everything will blossom, the heart of the world will open.
 
One day a man will come
He will light lights on the road
She dreamed the dream
And she knows: the day will come.
She sent me away
To the spring.
What will I say?
Let the wound heal.
The main thing: do not be afraid,
As you are a lonely star,
There between all the windows
A light is lit for the souls.
 
Who is it that comes in the form of a cloud, pillar of smoke?
All the night at the fire
I will ask for our souls
One day everything will blossom, the heart of the world will open.

This (is ) my heart

This is my heart, this my heart

all the time!
How much, how much does it feels
how it feels and feels always
all the time!

Der Kondor fliegt vorbei

Der Kondor der Anden erwachte
Mit dem Licht eines glücklichen Tagesanbruchs.
Langsam enfaltete er seine Schwingen
Und glitt herab zum blauen Fluss, um zu trinken.
 
Hinter ihm bedeckte sich die Erde
Mit frischem Grün, mit Liebe und Frieden.
Hinter ihm erblühte der Zweig, die Sonne keimte auf
Im Weizenfeld, im Weizenfeld.
 
Der Kondor der Anden flog hinab,
Als ein glücklicher Tag anbrach.
Der Himmel schluchzte beim Anblick seines Fluges
Und vergoss seine grauen Tränen, als er fortflog.
 
Hinter ihm bedeckte sich die Erde
Mit frischem Grün, mit Liebe und Frieden.
Hinter ihm erblühte der Zweig,
Die Sonne keimte auf im Weizenfeld, im Weizenfeld.
