Silent (English Translation Of ‘Still’ By Jupiter Jones)


If you expect a tutorial or something more related with my usual articles please skip this post and come back one of these days.

It took me one week to decide whether or not to write and publish this post. The main reason for this is that I didn’t know what to write. I felt that I was supposed to explain something out of my private life. Finally I understood that I don’t have to explain anything.

The reason for sharing this is that I was very moved when an ex-girlfriend from 23 years ago sent me this song by the German band Jupiter Jones.

I did my best to translate the text for you into English (below) and think I did a pretty good job.

Even now I hesitate to push the publish button but I think I do it anyway.

I had to embed the video above as the version on Youtube has embedding disabled. If this one goes down for any reason just click her for the Youtube-version.

Gosh, I think she never really hated me.

Silent (Still by Jupiter Jones)

So silent that everyone of us knew
this is forever, forever and a lifetime

And it was so silent that everyone of us felt
that there is no word that ever could
describe this feeling

So silent that all the clocks were silenced
Yes, the time stopped going on

So silent and lost you went away
So silent and lost you went away

I’ve heard so much yet I never understand
This is the reason that I can’t sleep at night

Even if I write a thousand songs about missing
Doesn’t mean that I understand why this feeling
stays forever

So loud, the hours after the impact
when it counted to notice everything and understand

And it was so loud that everything we thought
just brought us emptiness

It was so loud and lost here 
When silence lived with us instead of you

I’ve heard so much yet I never understand 
This is the reason that I can’t sleep at night

Even if I write a thousand songs about missing
Doesn’t mean that I understand why this feeling
stays forever

So silent
Although I miss you every day
And wherever you are at the moment
You show me that silence now has become your friend

I’ve heard so much yet I never understand
This is the reason that I can’t sleep at night

Even if I write a thousand songs about missing
Doesn’t mean that I understand
Doesn’t mean that I understand

I’ve heard so much yet I never understand
This is the reason that I can’t sleep at night

Even if I write a thousand songs about missing
Doesn’t mean that I understand why this feeling
stays forever
