"Spring Nicht-English" as written by Patrick Benzner, Dave Roth, Peter Hoffmann and David Jost....
Über den Dächern, ist es so kalt, und so still
Ich schweig deinen Namen, weil du ihn jetzt nicht hören willst
Der Abgrund der Stadt verschlingt jede Träne die fällt.
Da unten ist nichts mehr, was dich hier oben noch hält.

Ich schrei' in die Nacht für dich, lass mich nicht im Stich
Spring nicht, die lichter fangen dich nicht, sie betrügen dich
Spring nicht, erinner' dich an dich und mich
Die Welt da unten zählt nicht, bitte spring nicht

In deinen Augen, scheint alles sinnlos und leer
Der Schnee fällt einsam, du spürst ihn schon lange nicht mehr
Irgendwo da draußen, bist du verloren gegangen
du träumst von dem Ende, um nochmal von vorn anzufangen

Ich schrei' in die Nacht für dich, lass mich nicht im Stich
Spring nicht, die Lichter fangen dich nicht, sie betrügen dich
Spring nicht, erinner' dich, an dich und mich
Die Welt da unten zählt nicht, Bitte spring nicht

Ich weiß nicht wie lang
Ich dich halten kann
Ich weiß nicht wie lang

Nimm meine Hand
Wir fangen nochmal an
Spring nicht

Ich schrei' in die Nacht für dich, lass mich nicht im Stich
Spring nicht, die lichter fangen dich nicht, sie betrügen dich
Spring nicht, erinner' dich, an dich und mich
Die Welt da unten zählt nicht, bitte spring nicht

Spring nicht
Und hält dich das
Auch nicht zurück
Dann spring' ich für dich

    General CommentUmm... babelfish, much?

    I tried translating it myself:

    Over the roofs
    It is so cold
    And so silent
    I'm not saying your name
    because you don’t want to
    hear it right now
    the deepness of the town
    devours every
    Tear that falls
    down there is nothing
    what keeps you up here

    [chorus]
    I scream in the night for you :
    don’t let go of me
    don’t jump
    the light wont catch you
    they betray you
    don’t jump
    remember yourself
    And you and me
    the world below doesn’t matter
    please don’t jump

    in your eyes
    everything seems senseless and empty
    the snow falls lonely
    you don’t feel them anymore
    somewhere out there you got lost
    you are dreaming from the end
    to start over again

    (chorus)

    I don’t know how long I can hold you
    I don’t know how long

    take my hand we’ll start over again
    don’t jump

    (chorus)

    And if this doesn’t hold you back,
    then I will jump for you

    General CommentOn top of the roof
    the air is so cold and so calm.
    I say your name in silence
    I don't want to hear it right now.
    The eyes of the city are
    counting the tears falling down.
    Each one a promise of everything
    you never found.

    I scream into the night for you
    Don't make it true,
    don't jump.
    The lights will not guide you through
    they're decieving you
    don't jump.
    So let memories go of me and you
    the world is down there out of view.
    Please don't jump.

    You open your eyes
    but you can't remember what for.
    The snow falls so quietly,
    you just can't feel it no more.
    Somewhere out there you lost yourself in your pain
    And dream of the end
    to start all over again.

    (Chorus)

    I don't know how long I can hold you so strong
    I don't know long
    Just take my hand and give it a chance,
    don't jump.

    (Chorus)

    And if all that can't hold you back.
    I'll jump for you.

    General CommentFYI, people, it seems what A.M. posted is the lyrics to the English version of the song (or otherwise) and -not- a translation of the original German lyrics.

    General Comment(Mostly the same, just my take on it. :O)

    Over the roofs
    It is so cold
    And so quiet
    I say nothing of your name
    Because you don’t want to
    Hear it now.
    The abyss of the town
    Engulfs every
    Tear that falls.
    Down there is nothing more
    What holds you up here

    [Chorus]
    I scream in the night for you
    Don’t abandon me
    Don’t jump
    The light won't catch you
    They deceive you
    Don’t jump
    Remember yourself
    And you and me
    The world below doesn’t count
    Please don’t jump

    In your eyes
    Everything seems senseless and empty
    The snow falls lonely
    You no longer feel them anymore
    Somewhere out there
    You were lost
    You are dreaming from the end
    to start over again

    [chorus]

    I don’t know how long
    I can hold you
    I don’t know how long

    Take my hand
    We’ll begin again
    Don’t jump

    [Chorus]

    And if this doesn’t hold you back,
    Then I will jump for you

    General CommentOver the roofs
    It’s so cold
    And so quiet
    I don’t say your name
    Because you don’t
    Want to hear it now
    The abyss of the city
    Swallow every
    Tear that falls
    Down there is nothing anymore
    That could still
    Keep you up here

    I scream into the night for you
    for my sake
    Don’t jump
    The lights won’t catch you
    They’re deceiving you
    Don’t jump
    Remember
    You and me
    The world down there doesn’t count
    Please don’t jump

    In your eyes
    Everything seems futile and empty
    Snow is falling lonely
    You haven’t felt it for a long time
    Somewhere out there
    You got lost
    You dream of the end
    To start over again

    I scream into the night for you
    for my sake
    Don’t jump
    The lights won’t catch you
    They’re deceiving you
    Don’t jump
    Remember
    You and me
    The world down there doesn’t count
    Please don’t jump
    Don’t jump

    I don’t know how long
    I can still hold you
    I don’t know how long

    Take my hand
    We’ll start over again
    Don’t jump

    I scream into the night for you
    for my sake
    Don’t jump
    The lights won’t catch you
    They’re deceiving you
    Don’t jump
    Remember
    You and me
    The world down there doesn’t count
    Please don’t jump

    Don’t jump
    And if this won’t hold you back
    Then I’ll jump for you

    General CommentI thought the last line in german was "I'll jump with you" not for you.

    General Commentsheesh, TH hires professional translators for their english versions, so it makes more sense to just use their english version, even if there are some discrepancies.
