Over 7 Bridges…

In the last few days an old song from the German rock star Peter Maffay is in my head. I believe it’s from 1980 or so. Gosh, time flies. I have to say that this is in fact a cover, because the original was from the (then) Eastern German band Karat.

The title of the song is free translated Over 7 Bridges You Have To Go.

As in some kind of way this song describes the confusion and feelings I went through the last couple of month I like to share it with you.

While you are listening you can read the free translated text, that will not rhyme because it’s a literary translation. So don’t bother singing it to you your loved ones while reading. Flying tomatoes will be guaranteed, hahaha.

Enjoy:

Over Seven Bridges You Have To Go

Sometimes I walk my road without watching
Sometimes I wish I had my rocking horse back
Sometimes I’m without rest and peace
Sometimes I lock all the doors behind me

Sometimes I have cold and sometimes hot
Sometimes I don’t know anymore what I know
Sometimes I’m already tired in the morning
And then I’m looking for comfort in a song

Over seven bridges you have to go
7 dark years you have to overcome
7 times you will be the ashes
But one time the you’ll be the bright shine

Sometimes the clock of life seems to stand still
Sometimes you seem just to walks in circles
Sometimes you seem to be ill of wanderlust
Sometimes you sit still on a bank

Sometimes you reach for the whole world
Sometimes it seems that the lucky start is falling
Sometimes you take while you rather would be giving
Sometimes you hate what you love

(3 times this one:)
Over seven bridges you have to go
7 dark years you have to overcome
7 times you will be the ashes
But one time the you’ll be the bright shine
