"Ohne dich" as written by Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers, Till Lindemann, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Oliver Riedel and Christoph Doom Schneider....
Ich werde in die Tannen gehen,
Dahin wo ich sie zuletzt gesehen,
Doch der Abend werft ein Tuch aufs Land,
Und auf die Wege hinterm Waldesrand,
Und der Wald ersteht so schwarz und leer,
Weh mir oh weh,
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr

Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir bin ich auch allein,
Ohne dich,
Ohne dich zähl ich die Stunden,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir stehen die Sekunden,
Lohnen nicht

Auf den Ästen in den Gräben,
Ist es nun still und ohne Leben,
Und das Atmen fällt mich ach so schwer,
Weh mir oh weh,
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr

Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir bin ich auch allein,
Ohne dich,
Ohne dich zähl' ich die Stunden,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir stehen die Sekunden,
Lohnen nicht, ohne dich

Und das Atmen fällt mich ach so schwer,
Weh oh weh,
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr

Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir bin ich auch allein,
Ohne dich,
Ohne dich zähl' ich die Stunden,
Ohne dich,
Mit dir stehen die Sekunden
Lohnen nicht, ohne dich

Ohne dich
Ohne dich
Ohne dich

    General CommentThis really is a great song... so unlike most of their other stuff, especially from the album 'Reise Reise'. I definitely like the fact that the singing is more melodic than in the usual Rammstein songs, simply because they're showing that they are able to do various styles of music as a band. This song is also a good example of how poetic Rammstein can be - which they actually are in a lot of they're songs - especially since it is a genuine love song.

    General CommentReise Reise does NOT suck, it is really great, but not as good as the older albums (Sehnsucht, Mutter). And clearly this is a love song.

    General CommentJust to clarify what some of you have already caught on to: "Ohne Dich" was actually written for Mutter. This explains why it has a more distinct instrumental sound (listen for that mandolin!) that is different than the rest of Reise, Reise (which, although it isn't quite as good as Mutter, is FAR from "really sucks", Mr. sonne). All in all, a beautiful song.

    General CommentI think I can see where sonne mond is coming from though. First of all, a most of the songs on Reise Reise sound very similar melody-wise, and second of all, almost every song on that album follows the same structure. I still like Ohne Dich, however, even if it is a bit simple. I wouldn't go as far as calling the album trivial - not every Rammstein album can be ground-breaking, but if it's not, it doesn't mean that it's trivial.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. From the chorus, to the harmony, to the verses, all put together to make this great song. Possibly my favorite song ever.

    General CommentOn the subject of REISE REISE, I theorize that Rammstein were planning to vary their musical style a bit, but kept most of the drastically different tracks off this album. Most of the songs for the next album (ROSENROT) were already written and considered for REISE REISE, but they may have wanted to ease the fans into the changes.

    Count on ROSENROT to be more of a departure, and more "ground-breaking".

    General CommentFirst of all for all you wanna be fans, this is NOT a love song. Til wrote this song for his mother who he was very close to and loved dearly, who passed away. He hated his father, so the lyric " without you" means what is he going to do without her?

    General Commentits about love; hence, love song. id agree that its not a *ballad*, as such, just more toned-down i suppose. i also read the bit about his parents, think it might be true?
