Ostseetage

Ich seh sie noch genau,
Ostseetage,
Meer und Himmel blau.
Wie ein grünes Band
führen Knicks zum Strand.
Ostseetage,
gelb vom Raps das Land.

Am Wasser spielen
Ein warmer Wind streicht von der See

The summer air was soft and warm
The feeling right, the Paris night
Did it's best to please us
And strolling down the Elysee
We had a drink in each cafe
And you
You talked of politics, philosophy and I
Smiled like Mona Lisa

We had our chance
It was a fine and true romance

We made our way along the river
And we sat down in the grass
By the Eiffel tower
I was so happy we had met
It was the age of no regret
Oh yes
Those crazy years, that was the time
Of the flower-power
But underneath we had a fear of flying
Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying
We took the chance
Like we were dancing our last dance

Ich seh sie noch genau,
Ostseetage,
Sommernächte lau.
Sonnenuntergang,
färbt Muscheln rot und Tang
Ostseetage,
leiser Wellenklang.

Ich seh sie noch genau
Ostseetage
Dunkel und herbstgrau
Wolken tief und schwer,
aufgepeitscht das Meer,
Ostseetage
Alles menschenleer

Ich seh sie noch genau,
Ostseetage,
Winterstürme rauh,
zieh'n vom Meer zum Land.
Eis am Wellenrand,
Ostseetage,
weiß vom Schnee der Strand.

Nordpolar

Festgefror'ner Sand

rotgefärbter Tang,

The summer air was soft and warm
The feeling right, the Paris night
Did it's best to please us
And strolling down the Elysee
We had a drink in each cafe
And you
You talked of politics, philosophy and I
Smiled like Mona Lisa

We had our chance
It was a fine and true romance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
Walks along the Seine
Laughing in the rain
Our last summer
Memories that remain

We made our way along the river
And we sat down in the grass
By the Eiffel tower
I was so happy we had met
It was the age of no regret
Oh yes
Those crazy years, that was the time
Of the flower-power

But underneath we had a fear of flying
Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying
We took the chance
Like we were dancing our last dance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
In the tourist jam
Round the Notre Dame
Our last summer
Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants
Our last summer
Morning croissants
Living for the day
Worries far away
Our last summer
We could laugh and play
