"Sehnsucht" as written by and Christian Chris Pohl....
outside my window
everything is dark
I'm sitting in my room
it's darker than the night
the walls are coming closer
try to reach my skin
they want to break my bones
but I don't care
at all
everything is looking down
everything is looking down

Tränen in den Augen
Reflektionen I'm Kerzenlicht
In der Dunkelheit
Fühle ich dich nicht
Blicke voller Sehnsucht
Sie suchen dich
Doch sie sind vergebens
do siehst mich nicht

outside my window
everything is dark
I'm sitting in my room
it's darker than the night
the walls are coming closer
try to reach my skin
they want to break my bones
but I don't care
at all
everything is looking down
emptyness in my soul
a black hole
where once there was my heart
one fine day
someone took you away from me
it happened so suddenly
you didn't say goodbye
you are not guilty
guilty of any thing
no one can blame you
for you have done nothing
so why did they do it
I can't explain

    General CommentThe best part of this song is the chorus, but unfortunatly it's in german.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite TC songs. it is so sad :( Though, sometimes I think Christian should stick with the German lyrics. When he writes in English, his lyrics usually run a bit of cheese factor and are fairly repetitive.

    General CommentThe chorus means sth like the following:

    Tears in the eyes,
    Reflections in candlelight
    In the darkness
    I don't feel you
    Yearning gazes
    They search for you
    But they are in vain
    You don't see me

    It's a beautiful song, full of emotions for the lost beloved person, although I like the guitar-driven, later songs of TC better, like Armageddon or Menschenfresser, but this doesn't fit here, as well as romantic songs don't belong to Terminal Choice in my opinion.
