Wenn du mit dir am Ende bist
Und du einfach nicht weiter willst
Weil du dich nur noch fragst
Warum und wozu und was dein Leben noch bringen soll

Halt durch, auch wenn du allein bist
Halt durch, schmeiß jetzt nicht alles hin
Halt durch, und irgendwann wirst du verstehen
Dass es jedem einmal so geht

Und wenn ein Sturm dich in die Knie zwingt
Halt dein Gesicht einfach gegen den Wind
Egal, wie dunkel die Wolken über dir sind
Sie werden irgendwann vorüberziehen

Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
Steh auf, auch wenn du unten liegst
Steh auf, es wird schon irgendwie weitergehen

Es ist schwer, seinen Weg nicht zu verlieren
Und bei den Regeln und Gesetzen hier
Ohne Verrat ein Leben zu führen
Das man selber noch respektiert

Auch wenn die Zeichen gerade alle gegen dich stehen
Und niemand auf dich wetten will
Du brauchst hier keinem irgendeinen Beweis zu bringen
Es sei denn es ist für dich selbst

Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
Steh auf, auch wenn du unten liegst
Steh auf, es wird schon irgendwie weitergehen

Nur keine Panik, so schlimm wird es nicht
Mehr als deinen Kopf reißt man dir nicht weg
Komm und sieh nach vorn

Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
Steh auf, auch wenn du unten liegst
Steh auf, es wird weitergehen

Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist
Steh auf, auch wenn du unten liegst
Steh auf, es wird schon irgendwie weitergehen

    I think this german song is more or less a translation of the chelsea hymn "you'll never walk alone" or "walk on". It isn't the same melody and it isn't the same text, but it has the same intention.

    it has nothing to do with the german soccer theam it was also one of the songs that campino wrote after the death of his mother (like Nur zu Besuch) and it is supposed to motivate people who have hade a tragical thing happen to them, and i think if you are one of those people youwill really apreciate this song.

    since you'll never walk alone was also covered by den hosen i don't think steh' auf wenn du am boden bist is a mere translation. also i don't think the intention is the same. you'll never walk alone says that you'll always have somebody by your side while steh' auf animates you to get up when you're down, because everyone feels like that in his/her life and you have to go on.

    Translation of this song:

    When you, are at your bitter end, And you simply don't want to carry on, Because you can only ask yourself, Why and How, and what you're Life should still bring (what the purpose of your life should be)... Hold on through, even when you're alone, Hold on through, don't throw everything away, Hold on through, and someday you'll understand, That sometimes, life just goes this way...

    And when the Storm is over you, Hold your face right into the wind, Regardless of how big and dark the stormclouds are, They'll eventually pass over!

    Stand up, when youre on the gorund, Stand up, when you're on the bottom, Stand up, it'll somehow, someway move on!

    It's hard, not to lose your way, with all the rules and practices in society, To lead a righteous life, So that you can respect yourself!

    And when all the signs are lined up against you, And no one wants to bet on you, You don't need to show any sort of proof, You need it only for yourself!

    Don't Panic, it's not so bad Ther'es more than just what's in your head now, don't rip yourself away. Look Forward!

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
