"Love Is A Shield" as written by Heiko Maile, Peter Douglas Godwin, Oliver Kreyssig and Marcus Meyn....
Love is a shield,
to hide behind,
love is a field
to grow inside,
and when I sometimes close my eyes
my mind starts spinning round.
Love is a baby
in a mother's arms,
love is your breath
which makes me warm,
and when I sometimes close my eyes,
my mind starts spinning round.
There is a feeling
that flows through me,
when you are near
you make it real
and we could live for this ideal.
And all the pictures we run through,
seem to be perfect,
seem to be true.
But nothing is quite forever,
especially staying together.
I don't care now
what comes along,
what counts is us,
no matter what will be,
just this naivety.
The changing words we're taking in,
seem to be perfect,
seem to win.
But nothing is quite forever,
especially staying together.

    Lyric CorrectionLove is a shield to hide behind
    Love is a field to grow inside
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around

    Love is a baby in your mothers arms
    Love is your breath which takes me warm
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around


    There is a feeling flows through me
    When you're beside that motivates
    My idol eyes seem too bright
    And all the pictures we run through
    Seem to be perfect, seem to be true
    And nothing is still forever
    Especially staying together


    Love is a shield to hide behind
    Love is a field to grow inside
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around

    Love is a baby in your mothers arms
    Love is your breath which takes me warm
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around


    Love is a shield to hide behind
    Love is a field to grow inside
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around

    Love is a baby in your mothers arms
    Love is your breath which takes me warm
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around


    I don't mind now what's coming soon
    What count is us no matter what will be
    All that is simplicity
    The changing words we're taking in
    Seem to be perfect, seem to win
    But nothing is still forever
    Especially stay together


    Love is a shield to hide behind
    Love is a field to grow inside
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around

    Love is a baby in your mothers arms
    Love is your breath which takes me warm
    And when I sometimes close my eyes
    My mind starts spinning around

    General CommentThe posted lyrics are the ones that are copied from all over the internet. I know they are a german band and maybe that is what the written german lyrics translate to, but it is so not what they are singing in english.

    General CommentGah. I need to apologize to gandalfe. I just came across a version of this song that his lyrics are spot on for. I guess the version i was familiar with was some kind of reprise.

    General CommentHello,
    I once read the story about the different lyrics.
    The first version had the lyrics posted by BekkaZ. This was only released in Germany. When the song was going to be released internationally, someone from the record company (probably a native english person) told the band, that they had to rewrite the lyrics, as they sound like a direct german translation, do not make sense in some points and are not even gramatically correct.
    So, they did that. The lyrics posted above are from this second international version.
    Have a nice week,
    Carsten
