Amanda Lear – Lili Marleen lyrics
Vor der Kaserne
Vor dem großen 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 I'm Träume
Dein verliebter Mund
Wenn sich die späten Nebel drehn
Werd ich bei der Laterne stehn
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen
