"Komponent" as written by and Sascha Ring....
I wonder how long we can get away
Side by side, I'm stuck to my phony pride
Always craving for something missing

Never get it, I always try
Never get it, I'm always trying

Never really been down with someone
Everyone of us would wish to be.
Someday, not too far away, we'll be facing.

We never share what we hide, after all
We wanna share what we hide, after all

See you passing by everyday, yeah
We're living up time in the night
Everyone of us, deep inside wishes...

We would share what we hide, after all
We could share what we hide, after all
We could share what we hide, after all

    My InterpretationIn the most general sense, this song is about having a secret that one can't or doesn't want to share. But, I think it is specifically implying a scenario where two people have a secret together and even though they go about their daily lives, they each equally have that secret on their mind, and yet they do not share.

    My InterpretationI believe the song is about a sad love story.
    One is trying to get the one he loves but is damned to fail, damned to ever be one step behind.

    This one knows that the other one loves him back and both wish they would and could share what they hide after all
    - the love they feel for each other, but which is not allowed and not accepted and because of this needs to be hidden from the world.

    They coexist captured in their independant lives, trying to do their best to get along and to keep their secret, but their love pulls constantly beneath the surface.

    With an objective view, it is beyond comprehension to not share this love, but their personal, cruel fate seems to make this love impossible - but although keeps it burning like fire.
