"I build for you a bed from roses?"
I finally found some lyrics I've been looking for for a while... all I need now is some nice German speaking personage to translate them nicely for me... google/babel did their usual hamfisted attempt leaving the odd word in it's native german and generally getting it arse about face.

I wish I could speak a second language.



Ich bau Dir ein Bett aus Rosen
die Wände aus Glanzpapier
das Zimmer hat einen goldenen Boden
und der Regenbogen endet genau hier
Alle Fenster gehen nach Süden mit Blick auf´s glitzernde Meer
Ich glätte täglich die Wogen tauche versunkenen Träumen hinterher
tausche Sehnsucht gegen Perlmutt werde lachen und weinen um Dich
hab immer´ n Trumpf im Ärmel, der sticht
Ich werde Dir die Liebe versprechen wenn Dir das Wasser bis zum Halse
steht
werde in zerrütteten Zeiten Dir ein Netz ausbreiten
stell mich mit in den Sturm, bis der Wind dreht
Ich lüge Dir das Blaue vom Himmel
rede Dir jede Tragik schön verjag den Kummer ein für alle Mal
Trauer kommt vor´s Tribunal paß auf, daß die Zeiten gut für Dich steh´n
Alle Wünsche gehen direkt In Erfüllung auch schon früher
wenn Du willst stehe Tag und Nacht zur Verfügung
bin verschwiegen und halte still
Das Alltagsgrau kipp ich in den Ausguß
Zweifel ersticke ich im Keim
für Dich soll es Sterntaler regnen und du kannst eitler als der
Sonnenschein sein
laß die Luft knistern
für Dich bau Dir Traumschlösser ins Morgenrot
böse Geister werden aufgemischt
Ich werde Dir die Liebe versprechen wenn Dir das Wasser bis zum Halse
steht
werde in zerrütteten Zeiten Dir ein Netz ausbreiten
stell mich mit in den Sturm bis der Wind dreht
Die Zulassung kriegen die guten Launen
die schlechten werden sofort entehrt
Herzschmerz verfüttert an die Friedenstauben
Probleme unter den fliegenden Teppich gekehrt
Ich werde Dir die Liebe versprechen wenn Dir das Wasser bis zum Halse
steht
werde in zerrütteten Zeiten Dir ein Netz ausbreiten
stell mich mit in den Sturm, bis der Wind dreht
Ich lüge Dir das Blaue vom Himmel
rede Dir jede Tragik schön
verjag den Kummer ein für alle Mal
Trauer kommt vor´s Tribunal
paß auf, daß die Zeichen gut für Dich steh´n
Werde in zerrütteten Zeiten
Dir ein Netz ausbreiten
stell mich mit in den Sturm, bis der Wind dreht

Freetranslation.com did slightly better, but even that wasn't all that great. Bah.

Have spent many a happy hour typing an English paragraph into a translation site and then....copying the translation and pasting it in the box and getting it translated BACK to English lol
If you've never tried it I recommend it thoroughly :x
works best wwith German I think.

There was a web page that did that for you - you could select up to 4 languages and it would translate between the lot and then back into english... was hours of fun! :)

i had to check out the song after i saw that there's a trance remix.
(i'm a sucker for those!)

i liked it a lot, so my own curiosity seeked out a german who translated it for me.

if you still haven't gotten a decent translation from anybody, let me know & i'll post it.

here here

I'll build you a bed made of roses
Walls of glazed paper
In a room with a golden floor
And the rainbow ends in here
All the windows face the south
There's a view of the shinning sea
Every day I flatten the waves
And descend into sad thought
I exhchange meloncholy for pearls
I'll laugh and I'll cry for you
And I'll hope for the love of chance
I swear my love to you
Even if the water is up to my neck
At the time of destruction I'll spread the net
I'll stand with you through the storm
As the wind blows
I'll lie without remorse
Give you all of my the tragedies
Shun away sadness forever
And the sadness will be judged (?)
Watch to make sure it is followed by good times
And wishes that come true early on
If you want me, I'm in your hands
I'm quiet and I'm calm
I'll throw out grey (?)
And will choke the doubt away
For you the star showers will spill
And your love is stronger than sunlight
Let the air waver for you
And I'll build you castles made of wishes
Embraced by evil spirits
Standing in the light of morning dawn
I swear my love to you
Even if the water is up to my neck
At the time of destruction I'll spread the net
I'll stand with you through the storm
As the wind blows
Let only the good come in
Shun the bad aside
Let the doves of peace pick away the pain of the heart
And we'll sweep trouble under the flying carpet
I swear my love to you
Even if the water is up to my neck
At the time of destruction I'll spread the net
I'll stand with you through the storm
As the wind blows
I'll lie without remorse
Give you all of my the tragedies
Shun away sadness forever
And the sadness will be judged (?)
Watch to make sure it is followed by good times
And wishes that come true early on
If you want me, I'm in your hands
