picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

No one knows why days turn into night-time
Nobody knows why the sun still shines
Nobody knows why the chilly winds blow still today
But I know that I love you so

Niemand weet waarom de dag weer nacht wordt
Niemand weet waarom de zon nog schijnt
Niemand weet waarom de kille wind nog waaien zou
Maar ik weet dat ik van je hou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

No one knows why stars shoot from the night sky
No one knows why death is chasing men
Nobody knows why some people sleep in freezing air
But I know that I love you so

Niemand weet waarom er sterren vallen
Niemand weet waarom de dood ons volgt
Niemand weet waarom er mensen slapen in de kou
Maar ik weet dat ik van je hou

Hold me tight
With my head, love, on your shoulder
Hold me tight
Caress softly through my hair
Hold me tight
Sometimes I frankly can't take it anymore
All I want then, is to be with you, my love

Hou me vast
Leg mijn hoofd, lief, op je schouder
Hou me vast
Streel me zachtjes door mijn haar
Hou me vast
Soms wordt het allemaal eventjes te veel
En bij jou zijn, is dan alles wat ik wil

No one knows why happiness can crumble
No one knows why flowers wither, die
No one knows why you're the only one that I do really trust
But I know that I love you so

Niemand weet waarom geluk soms wegwaait
Niemand weet waarom een bloem verwelkt
Niemand weet waarom jij de enige bent die ik vertrouw
Maar ik weet dat ik van je hou


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Hold me tight
With my head, love, on your shoulder
Hold me tight
Caress softly through my hair
Hold me tight
Sometimes I frankly can't take it anymore
All I want then, is to be with you, my love

Hou me vast
Leg mijn hoofd, lief, op je schouder
Hou me vast
Streel me zachtjes door mijn haar
Hou me vast
Soms wordt het allemaal eventjes te veel
En bij jou zijn, is dan alles wat ik wil


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Ask no more, say no more
Just embrace me, hold me tight
And stop talking, hold me close to you
Words are failing anyway
When I pour out my heart to you
So stop talking, hold me close to you

Vraag me niets, zeg me niets
Sla je armen om me heen
Praat niet met me, hou me stevig vast
Woorden schieten toch tekort
Als ik mijn hart bij jou uitstort
Praat niet met me, hou me stevig vast

Hold me tight

Hold me tight
Caress softly through my hair
Hold me tight
Sometimes I frankly can't take it anymore

Hou me vast
Leg mijn hoofd, lief, op je schouder
Hou me vast

Hou me vast
Soms wordt het allemaal eventjes te veel
En bij jou zijn, is dan alles wat ik wil

Volumia! (1992-2002) was a Dutch pop band from Heerlen (province Limburg). De band (9 persons strong) started as cover band in a student society, but over the years they began to write their own songs, in the Dutch language. Front man was singer-songwriter and pianist Xander de Buisonjé (1973).

The band scored several hits. Their two biggest hits were: 'Farewell'/'Afscheid' (apr. 1998) and above song 'Hold me tight'/'Hou me vast' (sept. 1998). The first was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for 19 week (highest position: 4); and the latter for 18 weeks (highest position: 2). 'Hold me tight' became a gold record.

Both songs have been voted into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted the last week of the year), 'Hold me tight' even every year, with 274 as highest position.

In 1999 above song 'Hold me tight' was used as film music for the movie Fourteen chicken/Het 14e kippetje (1999), written by Arnon Grunberg and with leading roles for Antonie Kamerling and Thekla Reuten. The song won the Rembrandt Award for best film song. Volumia! was also awarded that year with the Edison Award for best new band.

Since 2002 Xander de Buisonjé has a solo career. He is known for his performance during the farewell-concert for André Hazes, singing 'She believes in me'/'Zij gelooft in mij' and his contributions to the yearly series of concerts 'The friends of Amstel life'/'De vrienden van Amstel life' (2003-present).

In 2011 he took part in the television programme The best singers of the Netherlands/De beste zangers van Nederland. During one episode singer Glennis Grace sang his song 'Farewell'/'Afscheid', scoring both the number 1 position in the iTunes ranking and in the Single Top 100. The single reached the gold record status and ment the big breakthrough for Glennis Grace.
