Don’t Die Before I Do

Posted in Music by vien88 on November 10, 2008

An emo title… with an unexpected emo post…? It’s like saying that someone else is not allowed to die first before I do, but that is impossible. It’s more like… a softer way of saying I’ll sacrifice for you…. Actually, I am not sure myself. lol…

To tell you the truth….

This is another music post.😀 This is a song by Rammstein featuring Sharleen Spiteri, all the way from Germany. There’s no video clip, but just listen to it. It’s lovely *w*

Stirb Nicht Vor Mir (Don’t Die Before I Do)

Die Nacht öffnet ihren Schoß
Das Kind heißt Einsamkeit
Es ist kalt und regungslos
Ich weine leise in die Zeit
Ich weiß nicht wie du heißt
Doch ich weiß dass es dich gibt
Ich weiß dass irgendwann
irgendwer mich liebt

He comes to me every night
No words are left to say
With his hands around my neck
I close my eyes and pass away

I don’t know who he is
In my dreams he does exist
His passion is a kiss
And I can not resist

Ich warte hier
Don’t die before I do
Ich warte hier
Stirb nicht vor mir

I don’t know who you are
I know that you exist
Stirb nicht
Sometimes love seems so far
Ich warte hier
Your love I can’t dismiss
Ich warte hier

Alle Häuser sind verschneit
Und in den Fenstern Kerzenlicht
Dort liegen sie zu zweit
Und ich
Ich warte nur auf dich

Ich warte hier
Don’t die before I do
Ich warte hier
Stirb nicht vor mir

I don’t know who you are
I know that you exist
Stirb nicht
Sometimes love seems so far
Ich warte hier
Your love I can’t dismiss

Stirb nicht vor mir

They say Rammstein is more towards metal. I’ve heard Mann Gegan Mann and some others, I didn’t quite like it. I don’t fancy his (the lead vocalist?) screaming voice (but I do love Chester Bennington’s). But hearing thislow tone singing ballad is pretty much romantic. Anyway, there is a deep meaning behind the lyrics, I am not quite sure but I do have my own interpretation (malas nak type). As a result, Imma take this as a theme song for one/two of my original characters cos their fate somehow relates to this song.

    yeap, rammstein is industrial metal by concept, though the metal in them should not be compared wif those in bands such as nightwish etc as rammstein’s blend of metal often lack the metallic punch :3
