Dutch song Marco Borsato - Wereld zonder jou
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

I use this mask to hide myself
And when my friends ask me the reason
I say I enjoy to be alone
I took your pictures off the wall
Like that's the best way to forget
That I miss you
How cold it is
How empty without you
Around me here

Ik heb een masker opgezet
En als mijn vrienden erom vragen
Zeg ik dat het heerlijk is alleen
Je foto's zijn al van de wand
Alsof ik zo vergeten kan
Dat ik je mis
Hoe koud het is
Hoe leeg zo zonder jou
Hier om me heen


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

I just cannot let you go
Although I say it's for the best
Alone and without you
I just cannot cope with it
I miss your arms embracing me
In this world without you near me, I can't live

Ik kan je niet laten gaan
Al zeg ik dat het beter is
Alleen en zonder jou
Ik kan het gewoon niet aan
Ik mis je armen om me heen
Nee, ik leef niet in een wereld zonder jou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

I have been trying everything
I could think of to forget you
Lying when they ask me how I've been
I just read books and watch TV
Although that doesn't change a thing
I'm feeling still
I'm longing still
I'm thinking constantly
Only of you

'k Heb bijna alles geprobeerd
Alles om je te vergeten
Ik lieg als z' aan me vragen hoe het gaat
Ik lees wat boeken, kijk tv
Maar daar verandert ook niets mee
Ik voel nog steeds
Verlang nog steeds
Ik denk nog steeds en steeds
Alleen aan jou

I just cannot let you go
Although I say it's for the best
Alone and without you
I just cannot cope with it
I miss your arms embracing me
In this world without you near me, I can't live

Ik kan je niet laten gaan
Al zeg ik dat het beter is
Alleen en zonder jou
Ik kan het gewoon niet aan
Ik mis je armen om me heen
Nee, ik leef niet in een wereld zonder jou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

The time stands still
The time that normally heals wounds
Stopped moving without you

De tijd staat stil
De tijd die alle wonden heelt
Ze loopt niet zonder jou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

I just cannot let you go
Although I scream it's for the best
Alone and without you
I just cannot cope with it
I miss your arms embracing me
And all the small things why I love you so
In this world without you near me, I can't live
Without you
Without you
Ahahaha yeah

Ik kan je niet laten gaan
Al schreeuw ik dat het beter is
Alleen en zonder jou
Ik kan het gewoon niet aan
Ik mis je armen om me heen
En alles aan je waar ik zo van hou
Waar ik zo van hou
Nee, ik leef niet in een wereld
Zonder jou
Zonder jou
Ahahaha yeah
