"Stirb nicht vor mir (english)" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Die Nacht öffnet ihren Schoß
Das Kind heißt Einsamkeit
Es ist kalt und regungslos
Ich weine leise in die Zeit
Ich weiß nicht wie du heißt
Doch ich weiß dass es dich gibt
Ich weiß dass irgendwann
irgendwer mich liebt

He comes to me every night
No words are left to say
With his hands around my neck
I close my eyes and pass away

I don't know who he is
In my dreams he does exist
His passion is a kiss
And I can not resist

Ich warte hier
Don't die before I do
Ich warte hier
Stirb nicht vor mir

I don't know who you are
I know that you exist
Stirb nicht
Sometimes love seems so far
Ich warte hier
Your love I can't dismiss
Ich warte hier

Alle Häuser sind verschneit
Und in den Fenstern Kerzenlicht
Dort liegen sie zu zweit
Und ich
Ich warte nur auf dich

Ich warte hier
Don't die before I do
Ich warte hier
Stirb nicht vor mir

I don't know who you are
I know that you exist
Stirb nicht
Sometimes love seems so far
Ich warte hier
Your love I can't dismiss

Stirb nicht vor mir

    My InterpretationSeems to be a song about a man and a woman who are soul mates, but haven't actually found each other yet. The fact that the male half of the song is in German and the female half is in English might symbolize how the two are "worlds apart".

    Even though the song portrays the determination of never giving up hope in their search, it also illustrates the pain of being without one another. They repeatedly ask each other not to die before their search is complete.

    This song is both melancholy and heartening. It is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.

    General Commentmost beautiful song on the whole Rosenrot album! I think it covers soemthing along the lines of finding the One that's perfect for you and letting them know how you feel before it's too late

    General CommentIt reminds me of Phantom of the Opera.

    In sleep he sang to me
    In dreams he came
    That voice which calls to me
    And speaks my name
    And do I dream again?
    For now I find
    The phantom of the opera is there,
    Inside my mind

    Sing once again with me
    Our strange duet
    My power over you
    Grows stronger yet
    And though you turn from me
    to glance behind
    The phantom of the opera is there
    Inside your mind

    General Commentwow. this song brings tears to my eyes. everyone wants to find that person they love with all of their heart and body and soul, with every part of their being. that person that they simply cannot live without. but love kills- whether slowly or not, it kills. or something like that.

    General CommentI love this song. I've always thought this song is about a person who is searching for the love of their life, feeling lonely and are heart broken but determined to find that special someone before it's too late.

    I think this song is about a man growing old and eventually dying, searching for that one person they can love with their whole heart. I can kind of relate to this song through my father. Ever since he and my mom divorced, my father has been living alone, searching for the true love of their life. (not sure if he is still through loving my mother :( )
