"Regen und Meer" as written by Eva Briegel, Jonas Pfetzing and Diane Weigmann....
Du bist nicht wie ich,
Doch das ändert nicht,
Dass du bei mir bist
Und ich zuseh' wie du schläfst.

Du bist noch längst nicht wach,
Ich war's die ganze Nacht
Und hab' mich still gefragt,
Was du tust, wenn ich jetzt geh'

Und dann verlass' ich deine Stadt,
Ich seh' zurück und fühl' mich schwer,
Weil g'rade angefangen hat,
Was du nicht willst und ich zu sehr.

Ich bin der Regen
Und du bist das Meer.

Ich hab' gedacht, ich kann es schaffen,
Es zu lassen, doch es geht nicht.
Is'n bisschen übertrieben,
Dich zu lieben, doch es geht nicht.
Nichts unversucht gelassen,
Dich zu hassen, doch es geht nicht.
Es geht nicht.

Ich bin nicht wie du,
Ich mach die Augen zu,
Und lauf blindlings durch die Straßen,
Hier bin ich, doch wo bist du?

Soll das alles sein?
Ich war so lang allein,
Es war alles ganz in Ordnung,
Ganz okay, und dann kamst du.

Und jetzt verlass' ich deine Stadt,
Ich seh' zurück und fühl' mich schwer,
Weil g'rade angefangen hat,
Was du nicht willst und ich zu sehr.

Ich bin der Regen
Und du bist das Meer.

Ich hab' gedacht, ich kann es schaffen,
Es zu lassen, doch es geht nicht.
Is'n bisschen übertrieben,
Dich zu lieben, doch es geht nicht.
Nichts unversucht gelassen,
Dich zu hassen, doch es geht nicht.
Es geht nicht.

Uh
Uh
Uh

Ich bin der Regen, du das Meer
Und sanfter Regen regnet leise.
Ich bin der Regen, du das Meer
Und sanfter Regen zieht im Wasser große Kreise.

Ich hab' gedacht, ich kann es schaffen,
Es zu lassen, doch es geht nicht.
Is'n bisschen übertrieben,
Dich zu lieben, doch es geht nicht.
Nichts unversucht gelassen,
Dich zu hassen, doch es geht nicht.
Es geht nicht.

Ich hab' gedacht, ich kann es schaffen,
Es zu lassen.

    General CommentI think this is really a wonderful song...it's a pity that there are no comments... I'm from germany and so I translated it for you (I know my english ain't that good, but I tried my best. Please correct my mistakes!


    You’re not like me
    But this doesn’t change
    That you’re with me
    And I’m watching you sleeping

    You’re still not awake
    I was the whole night through
    And asked myself silently
    What you will do when I’m leaving now

    And then I’ll leave your town
    I’m watching back and feeling sad
    Because a moment ago that thing started
    That you don’t want and I want it so much
    I’m the rain and you’re the sea

    I thought I could make it
    Could let it be
    But it doesn’t work

    I overdid it a little bit
    With loving you
    But it doesn’t work

    I tried everything
    To hate you
    But it doesn’t work
    It doesn’t work

    I’m not like you
    I’m closing my eyes
    And walk blindly through the streets
    Here I am, but where are you?

    Might this be everything
    I was alone for such a long time
    Everything was really all right
    Really okay, until you came

    And now I’m leaving your town
    I’m watching back and feeling sad
    Because a moment ago that thing started
    That you don’t want and I want it so much
    I’m the rain and you’re the sea

    I thought I could make it
    Could let it be
    But it doesn’t work

    I overdid it a little bit
    With loving you
    But it doesn’t work

    I tried everything
    To hate you
    But it doesn’t work
    It doesn’t work

    I’m the rain and you’re the sea
    Gentle rain is falling silently
    I’m the rain and you’re the sea
    Gentle rain has wide repercussions in the water


    I thought I could make it
    Could let it be
    But it doesn’t work

    I overdid it a little bit
    With loving you
    But it doesn’t work

    I tried everything
    To hate you
    But it doesn’t work
    It doesn’t work

    I thought I could make it
    Could let it be

    This song is about a girl who loves boy. She knows that he doesn't share her love and so she tries to get away from him and forget him, she even tries to hate him, but she can't. As she realises this, she leaves the town for never seeing him again.

    General CommentI thought it meant that too, but what does she mean by "Gerade angefangen hat was du nicht willst und ich zu sehr?" It's supposed to be the opposite...

    General CommentCorrected English:
    You are not like me -
    But that doesn't change,
    That you are with me -
    And I'm watching you sleep,
    You haven't been awake for a long time,
    It was me the whole night,
    And I quietly wondered what you'll do-
    When I go now,
    Then I will leave your city -
    I'm looking back and I feel heavy,
    Because it was just the beginning -
    What you don't want and I too much,
    I am the rain and you are the sea,

    I thought I could make it,
    Leaving you,
    Isn't possible after all,
    I exaggerated it a bit,
    Loving you,
    Isn't possible after all,
    I left nothing undone,
    Hating you,
    Isn't possible after all -
    It's not possible,

    I am not like you -
    I close my eyes,
    I'm running blindly through the streets -
    Here I am where you arem
    Is that supposed to be everything -
    I was alone for so long,
    It was looking quite good -
    Quite good -
    And then you came,

    I am the rain -
    You are the sea,
    Gentle rain rains softly,
    I am the rain -
    You the sea,
    Gentle rain draws large circles,
    In the water.

    General Comment"Gerade angefangen hat was du nicht willst und ich zu sehr"

    this ia about how badly she wants to be with this guy and they eventually just spent a night together, being with him is all she wants but he doesn't want her. in a moment of weakness he said "yes" to her but it's not what eh truly wants and she knows it.
