Wolfsheim - Kein Zurück

Here's a song I listen to whenever I'm working on anything from painting to writing to clothing designs... Below the video I pasted lyrics translated in English I found online. Since I'm not German, I can only hope these are faithful translations. A dear friend of mine introduced me years ago to this great German group, Wolfsheim. Hope you enjoy!


There is no way back

Do you remember how i was like?
Wonderful childhood -
the world full of color and beauty.
Until one day you it strikes you:
not every goodbye
has its reunion.

(Chorus)
Always forward, step by step,
there is no way back,
and what is now,
can never be undone.
Time escapes us,
what's done is done.
And what is now,
will never happen again in the same way.

There is no way back.
There is no way back.

A word too much, spoken in anger,
a step too far you dared to go,
and all is lost.
Whatever is done,
what i said, remains spoken,
and what looked like eternity,
is already in the past.

Chorus

Oh, if I could just once
turn back the clocks.
For much of what I know today,
I'd prefer not having seen.

There is no way back.
There is no way back.

Your life is just running in circles,
full of time, carelessly thrown away,
you procrastinate your dreams endlessly.
Someday, you intend to live,
but when if not today?
For one day even a dream is too long gone.

Chorus
