Dutch song Willeke Alberti - Samen zijn
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

My dear friend, can I talk with you a moment
I am confused about what's happening to us
Do you also feel that anxiety and fear
When you are lonely
'Cause it's like the days that you are not with me
Are almost void and empty
Do you also feel such a turmoil
That it can't go on like this our whole lifes long
Will there always be doubt between us both

Mijn vriendje, mag ik even met je praten
Want het verwart me, wat er met ons twee gebeurt
Heb jij dat ook, gevoel van angst dat je bekruipt
Als je alleen bent
Want het is alsof de dagen zonder jou
Zo hol en bijna leeg zijn
Heb jij het ook, gevoel van onrust
Dat het niet voor altijd door kan blijven gaan
Zal die twijfel voor ons blijven bestaan

Being close
Means laugh together, cry together
Be together, always sharing life
Being close
Is stronger than the strongest storm
More colourful than all the grey around
'Cause everyone
Yes, everyone
Wants to be close in life

Samen zijn
Is samen lachen, samen huilen
Leven door dichtbij elkaar te zijn
Samen zijn
Is sterker dan de sterkste storm
Gekleurder dan het grauwe om ons heen
Want samen zijn
Ja, samen zijn
Dat wil toch iedereen

My dear friend, can I lean against your shoulder
And for a moment feel the warm glow of your skin
Do you also feel that serenity and peace
When our eyes meet
'Cause it seems as if our nights together
Mean much more and are more honest
Do you also feel this is timeless
That it can go on like this our whole lifes long
This is the reason I'll stand by your side

Mijn vriendje, mag ik even aan je hangen
Je warmte voelen, ook al is het maar heel kort
Heb jij dat ook, gevoel van rust dat je bekruipt
Als je me aankijkt
Want het is alsof de nachten samen
Zoveel meer en echt gemeend zijn
Heb jij dat ook, gevoel van tijdloos
Dat het wel voor altijd door kan blijven gaan
Door die gevoelens blijf ik naast je staan

Being close
Means laugh together, cry together
Be together, always sharing life
Being close
Is stronger than a thunderstorm
More colourful than all the grey around
'Cause everyone
Yes, you and me
We can feel that we are one

Samen zijn
Is samen lachen, samen huilen
Leven door dichtbij elkaar te zijn
Samen zijn
Is sterker dan de sterkste storm
Gekleurder dan het grauwe om je heen
Want samen zijn
Ja, met z'n twee
Te beleven één te zijn

Yes, being close

Ja, samen zijn

Willeke Alberti (1945), stage name of Willy Albertina Verbrugge, is a Dutch actress and singer. She is the daughter of the famous Amsterdam singer of 'life songs' ('levensliederen') Willy Alberti (1926-1985). She sang several duets with her father (like 'No one wants to leave his child alone'), but mainly had a career of her own.

In 1963 she scored a big hit with her single 'Mirror image'/'Spiegelbeeld' (translation from a French song). In 1970 she played the leading role in the television series The little truth/De kleine waarheid and in 1975 she played the title character in the movie Red Sien/Rooie Sien. This last role brought her again a hit, the song 'Again and again'/'Telkens weer' (1975).

Willeke Alberti played in over ten films and released over 15 albums. She won an Edison Music Award for her first album (1965) and a Golden Harp oeuvre award in 1981.

In 2001 she founded a non-profit foundation (Willeke Alberti Foundation) to organize activities in homes for elderly and tours along the houses herself with old and well-known songs.

The above song 'Being close'/'Samen zijn' (1987) was used as the theme song of the children television series Pompy de Robodoll (1987-88). The show was about an orphan who became friends with a robot.

Tom Manders jr. was a director and producer. He was the son of the famous comedian Tom Manders, also known as Dorus - who had a big hit with 'Two clothes moths'/'Twee motten' (1956). In 2007 Manders jr. made a television documentary about his father.
