Over 7 Bridges…

Steppenwolf album cover

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:
