I was hoping someone might be able to help me out here. I heard this song a while back and I really liked the tune, but don?t know the words. It is by the band Nena and I believe the lyrics are German (at least from my limited knowledge of the language it ?looks? German)

Leuchtturm

Ich geh' mit Dir wohin Du willst
Auch bis ans Ende dieser Welt
Am Meer, am Strand, wo Sonne scheint
Will ich mit Dir alleine sein.

Komm geh' mit mir den Leuchtturm 'rauf
Wir können die Welt von oben seh'n
Ein U-Boot holt uns dann hier raus
Und Du bist der Kapitän.

Gehn wir an Bord und fahren mit
Ich tauch' den Fischen hinterher
Mach' alle Türen zu und los
Vertreiben wir uns die Zeit im Meer.

Hey, halt Dich fest, das U-Boot taucht
Gleich wird die Sonne untergeh'n
Ich glaub' wir sind schon ziemlicch weit
Ich kann den Leuchtturm nicht mehr seh'n

Probably not a particularly clean translation, but babelfish usually does fine for getting the basic meaning accross.


Lighthouse

I go ' with you where you want
Also to to the end of this world
At the sea, at the beach, where sun shines
I want to be with you alone.

Come go ' with me the lighthouse ' up
We know the world from above seh'n
A submarine gets us then here raus
And you are a captain.

Gehn we on board and ride along
I dip ' the fish afterwards
Mach ' all doors too and loosely
We drive ourselves out the time in the sea.

Hey, stop you firmly, the submarine dips
The sun becomes alike untergeh'n
I believe ' we are already ziemlicch far
I do not know the lighthouse no more seh'n

I used the above Babelfish translation for a couple of words, but reanslated more by hand, might read a little better. I can't vouch for accuracy though either. Aon is probably still the best source. With a little more work, I could probably polish the translation... but =)


Leuchtturm
LightHouse

Ich geh' mit Dir wohin Du willst
I go with you where you will
Auch bis ans Ende dieser Welt
Also to the end of the world
Am Meer, am Strand, wo Sonne scheint
to me, on the beach, where sun shines
Will ich mit Dir alleine sein.
I will always be with you

Komm geh' mit mir den Leuchtturm 'rauf
Come go with me to the lighthouse
Wir können die Welt von oben seh'n
We can see the world from above
Ein U-Boot holt uns dann hier raus
A sub holds us then here
Und Du bist der Kapitän
And you are the captain.

Gehn wir an Bord und fahren mit
we go on board and travel with
Ich tauch' den Fischen hinterher
I dip the fish under___
Mach' alle Türen zu und los
make all doors to and fro
Vertreiben wir uns die Zeit im Meer.
________ we us the time in me

Hey, halt Dich fest, das U-Boot taucht
Hey, stop firmly, the U-Boat dives
Gleich wird die Sonne untergeh'n
______ will the sun go under
Ich glaub' wir sind schon ziemlicch weit
I believe we are sure _____________
Ich kann den Leuchtturm nicht mehr seh'n
I can no longer see the Lighthouse

Well, I'll do my best. I love the song btw, it's one of my favourites of Nena... (it's only her btw, on concerts she always goes Nena & Band)

Lighthouse

I'll go with you where ever you want
Even to the end of this world
At the sea, on the beach, where the sun is shining
I want to be alone with you

Come, walk with me up the lighthouse
We can see the world from above
A u-boat will get us out of here
And you are the captain


We go on board and go with it (fahren is drive usually but you don't drive on sea?)
I dive after the fishes
Close all the doors and go
We will kill the time at sea

Hey, hold on tight, the u-boat dives
Soon the sun will set
I think we are quite far by now
I can't see the lighthouse anymore


(That's in roughly five minutes.. hope it helps)

Ya know, I think it's time to evaluate another artist. Knew one song quite well, time to hear more I guess.
