HGich.T's Snowy Window [Schneefenster]

.

















Olliver Wichmann translates:



On the black mogul field
I wanted to be close to you
Sunken together in deep powder
Yet the downhill run I took alone
And you bring me down like an

Like an avalanche
Avalanche of tears
Avalanche
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears

You bought me ski underwear
was my anchor of emotions
Yet your parallel turn in bed
was hurting me
And you bring me down like an

Like an avalanche
Avalanche of tears
Avalanche
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I can no longer restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears

High up on the window
I wanted to be close to you
We are looking through the window
High up on the window
I wanted to be close to you
We are looking through the window

The window stands between us
Your sister opens the window
I thought you were sisters
Up on the window
Come on, let's shoot a western
Up on the window
We don't shoot a western
Up on the window

I enter the saloon
You are standing by the window
I'm seeing double everything
Behind your sister's window
You draw a line from here to Idaho

I thought you were sisters
Up on the window
With a beautiful, wide neck
On the window
I kick the football out of the window
I fly with the UFO out of the window

The UFO just fits through the window
It has a window on its rear, too
I see myself in the window
I weep alone
On the snowboard at Sankt Moritz

Like an avalanche
Avalanche of tears
Avalanche
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I can no longer restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears

Lyrics in German:

Auf der schwarzen Buckelpiste
Wollte ich Dir so nah sein
Sind gemeinsam im Tiefschnee versunken
Doch die Talabfahrt nahm ich allein
Und Du schießt mich ab wie eine

Wie eine Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Und ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen

Du kauftest mir Skiunterwäsche
Warst mein Anker der Gefühle
Doch Dein Paralellschwung im Bett
Hat mich verletzt
Und Du schießt mich ab wie eine

Wie eine Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Und ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich kann mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen

Hoch oben auf dem Fenster
Wollte ich Dir so nah sein
Wir gucken durch das Fenster
Hoch oben auf dem Fenster
Wollte ich dir so nah sein
Wir gucken durch das Fenster

Das Fenster steht zwischen uns
Deine Schwester öffnet das Fenster
Ich dachte ihr seid Schwestern
Oben auf dem Fenster
Komm wir drehen einen Western
Oben auf dem Fenster
Wir drehen keinen Western
Oben am Fenster

Ich betrete den Saloon
Du stehst am Fenster
Ich sehe alles doppelt
Hinter dem Fenster deiner Schwester
Du ziehst eine Line von hier bis Idaho

Ich dachte ihr seid Schwestern
Oben auf dem Fenster
Mit schönem, großen Ausschnitt
Auf dem Fenster
Ich schieße mit dem Fußball aus dem Fenster
Ich fliege mit dem UFO aus dem Fenster

Das UFO passt genau durch das Fenster
Es hat hinten auch ein Fenster
Ich sehe mich selbst im Fenster
Ich weine allein
Auf dem Snowboard auf Sankt Moritz

Wie eine Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Lawine
Lawine der Tränen
Und ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Und ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich kann mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen
Nein, ich will mich nicht mehr zähmen
Lawine der Tränen

Translation will follow later, as I find time for it

That was too fast...

Just spotted a nasty spelling error:

Doch Dein Paralellschwung im Bett

should be

Doch Dein Parallelschwung im Bett

Never mind,

Hi Olliver,

Instead of "Lawine der Tränen" ["flood of tears"], I heard "Wiener der Tränen" ["Sausage of Tears" or "Penis of Tears"].

I prefer my translation.

Hi Linh,

Well, of course your variation would have been more interesting ;-)

Here is the complete English translation:

And you bring me down like an

Like an avalanche
Avalanche of tears
Avalanche
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears

You bought me ski underwear
was my anchor of emotions
Yet your parallel turn in bed
was hurting me
And you bring me down like an

Like an avalanche
Avalanche of tears
Avalanche
Avalanche of tears
And I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I can no longer restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
No, I no longer want to restrain myself
Avalanche of tears
