Amanda Lear – Lili Marleen lyrics

Vor der Kaserne
Vor dem groЯen Tor
Stand eine Laterne
Und steht sie noch davor
So wolln wir da uns wiedersehn,
Bei der Laterne wolln wir stehn,
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Underneath the lantern
By the barrack gate,
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait:
It was there that you whispered tenderly,
That you lov'd me
You'd always be
My own Lilli Marlene.
My own Lilli Marlene.
Time would come for roll call,
Time for us to part,
Darling I'd caress you
And press you to my heal;
There' neath that far off lantern light,
I'd hold you tight,
We'd kiss "Good-night",
My own Lilli Marlene.
My own Lilli Marlene
I knew you were waiting in the street,
I heard your feet
But could not meet.
My own Lilli Marlene
My own Lilli Marlene
Aus dem stillen Raume,
Aus der Erde Grund
Hebt mich wie im Trдume
Dein verliebter Mund.
Wenn sich die spдten Nebel drehn,
Werd ich bei der Laterne stehn
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen.
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen.
