If you don’t understand the lyrics, here is an English Translation:
Everything I love
Hurts me the most
I still clearly hear
Those steps when You’re gone…
On and on tryin’ to understand
You have many worries
And I, I need to tell You that
Not now, ’cause You’re in a hurry…
Everything I lost
Miss’ the kindness You give
When, where, I don’t know
And if I ask, You just leave…
After all we’ve said and done
You seem more than strong
After all I don’t know where
Did I go wrong…
Don’t make it harder these days
I need love, don’t hurt my feelings
You’ve never suffered this way
‘Cause if You did, how come I’m bleeding, on and on
No more hiding, no lying
Will You give me reason to live
‘Cause I’m dying…
After all I don’t know how and where to start
As if we never, never said before
‘Till death do us apart…’
