Warum hast du mir das angetan?
Ich hab's von einem Bekannten erfahren
Du hast jetzt einen neuen Freund
Zwei Wochen lang hab ich nur geweint
Jetzt schaust du weg, grüßt mich nicht mehr
Und ich lieb dich immer noch so sehr
Ich weiß, was dir an ihm gefällt
Ich bin arm und er hat Geld
Du liebst ihn nur, weil er ein Auto hat
Und nicht, wie ich, ein klappriges Damenrad

Doch eines Tages werd' ich mich rächen
Ich werd' die Herzen aller Mädchen brechen
Dann bin ich ein Star
Der in der Zeitung steht
Und dann tut es dir Leid
Doch dann ist es zu spät

Zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät)
Doch dann ist es zu spät

Zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät)
Dann ist alles zu spät

Du bist mit ihm im Theater gewesen
Ich hab dir nur Fix und Foxi vorgelesen
Du warst mit ihm essen, natürlich im Ritz
Bei mir gab's nur Currywurst mit Pommes Frites
Der Gedanke bringt mich ins Grab
Er kriegt das, was ich nicht hab
Ich hasse ihn, wenn es das gibt
So, wie ich dich vorher geliebt
Ich wollte ihn verprügeln, deinen Supermann
Ich wusste nicht, dass er auch Karate kann
(Hung dong tschabalahuti)

Doch eines Tages werd' ich mich rächen
Ich werd' die Herzen aller Mädchen brechen
Dann bin ich ein Star
Der in der Zeitung steht
Und dann tut es dir Leid
Doch dann ist es zu spät

Eines Tages werd' ich mich rächen
Ich werd' die Herzen aller Mädchen brechen
Dann bin ich ein Star
Und du läufst hinter mir her
Doch dann ist es zu spät
Dann kenn' ich dich nicht mehr

Zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät)
Doch dann ist es zu spät

Zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät), zu spät (zu spät)
Dann ist alles viel zu spät

    What a great song. If you've ever seen them live, you know that they always play this song last in their set. I know there are some girls I'd like to sing this song, heh.
    Die Zu Späten, baby!

    I like the song very much. I like the group and have much lps of them. My favorit song is "Teenager Liebe". This is a great song. And... I saw them live, it's better than othe lp.

    Do you guys like the band's 'older' stuff more than the 'new'? Personally, I think that they've made some of their best music after their re-union in the early 90's, when Rod joined them.

    I like the lyrics to this song because anybody who has no money would feel the same way, but music-wise it sounds too much like pop-rock, like many other Ärzte-songs from the 80's. That's not to say that they haven't had good music in the 80's, but it just seems like 'Zu Spät' and 'Teenager Liebe' are very far from being considered punk-rock.

    I was so disappointed when i came here because I noticed no one had posted Monsterparty which is the reason why I fell in love with the band in the first place!

    cool, however, I like the other version best (on the Rock'n'Roll Realschule album) where Farin (or whoever^^) is the rich guy and the other man, the poor one. ;-)

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
