Spieluhr (Music box)

A little man - fakes his death
[He] wanted to be all alone
The little heart stood still for hours
So they found him dead
He is [without cermony] buried in wet sand
With a music box in the hand

The first snow covers the grave
[It] has gently woke up the child
On a cold winter's night
Is the little heart awoken

As the frost flows into the child
The music box is wound up
A melody in the wind
And from the earth the child sings

Up and down rider
And no angel comes down
My heart beats no longer
Only the rain falls on the grave
Up and down rider,
A melody in the wind
My heart beats no longer
And from the earth the child sings

The cold moon in full splendour
Hears the cry in the night
And no engel comes down here
Only the rain falls on the grave

Between hard oak boards
It is playing with the music box
A melody in the wind
And from the earth the child sings

Up and down rider
And no angel comes down here
My heart beats no longer
Only the rain falls on the grave
Up and down rider
A melody in the wind
My heart beats no longer
And from the earth the child sings

Up and down rider
My heart beats no longer

On Dead Sunday they hear
From the cemetery this melody
Then they unearth it
To save the little heart in the child

Up and down rider
A melody in the wind
My heart beats no longer
And from the earth the child sings
Up and down rider
And no angel comes down here
My heart beats no longer
Only the rain falls on the grave

Up and down rider
A melody in the wind
My heart beats no longer
And from the earth the child sings!
