Rammstein Liebe ist für alle da lyric with English translation

Warmes Wasser
Schöne Leiber
Wie sie glänzen
In der Sonne
Ich schleich mich an
Und rede fein
Wer ficken will
Muss freundlich sein

Liebe ist für alle da
Liebe ist für alle da
Liebe ist für alle da

Ich mach die Augen zu
Dann seh ich sie
Ich sperr sie ein in meine Fantasie
Ich mach die Augen zu
Sie wehrt sich nicht
Liebe ist für alle da - nicht für mich

Warmes Wasser
Schöne Leiber
Nicht für mich
Es läuft davon
Feinste Formen
Gut gebaut
Voller Mund
So braune Haut

Liebe ist für alle da
Liebe ist für alle da
Die Liebe ist für alle da - auch für mich

Ich mach die Augen zu
Dann seh ich sie
Ich sperr sie ein in meine Fantasie
Ich mach die Augen zu
Sie wehrt sich nicht
Liebe ist für alle da - nicht für mich

Ich mach die Augen zu
Wir sind allein
Ich halt sie fest
Und keiner sieht sie weinen
Sie macht die Augen zu
Sie wehrt sich nicht
Liebe ist für alle da - auch für mich

Liebe ist für alle da
Die Liebe ist für alle da
Liebe ist für alle da - auch für mich

Lyric © Rammstein
Warm water
Beautiful bodies
How they shine
In the sun
I sneak up
And speak well
Whoever wants to fuck
Must be friendly

There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone

I close my eyes
Then I see her
I lock her up in my imagination
I close my eyes
She doesn’t defend herself
There is love for everyone – not for me

Warm water
Beautiful bodies
Not for me
It’s running away
Fine curves
Good build
Full mouth
Such brown skin

There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone – and for me

I close my eyes
Then I see her
I lock her up in my imagination
I close my eyes
She doesn’t defend herself
There is love for everyone – not for me

I close my eyes
We are alone
I’m holding her tightly
And no one sees her crying
She closes her eyes
She doesn’t defend herself
There is love for everyone – and for me

There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone
There is love for everyone – and for me

This song is about a person who is so lonely and love-deprived that he feels the need to be loved by any means necessary. The person sees a beautiful girl and wants her to love him, so he rapes her. He thinks that will make her love him and now he can have love too.

It can also be about a couple that is already in a relationship or married. And the man (husband) in the relationship isn’t feeling his partner (wife) is doing her part in the relationship after all he has done when it comes to loving him as much as he loves her. So rather then cheating on her, he wants to remain faithful to his feelings and commitment to her, despite her now not loving him anymore physically making him feel cheated.

This song feels almost like a continuation of Feuer and Wasser, but it also recalls some of the same feelings as Du Reichst So Gut. Although Du Reichst doesn’t mention water directly, it does say that he touches her “wet skin”.

Another similarity between the two songs is how he tells the woman in Du Reischt not to resist and in Leibe is Fur Alle, he talks about how she doesn’t resist, even though she’s apparently crying, so whatever is happening is not something that she wants.

The water theme is all through out Feuer and Wasser as is the singer’s apparent feelings of rejection and inferiority. He is in this girl’s shadow so all he can do is clumsily reach out and grab for her with wet hands. In liebe, he’s still watching a woman, or women in the water, still feeling isolated, inferior, unlovable, but this time instead of just impotently reaching out as the object of his desire slides past, he takes matters into his own hands and “makes” her love him.

  • Lena

    I think the last line of the song needs to be “Liebe ist für alle da auch meine Hand.” XD

    You can see the song is definitely about masturbation, when you consider that it is the title song of the album, and there was a special edition of this album containing dildos shaped as the band members’.. well.. members. This song, which gave name to the whole album, tells the Rammstein fangirls (or boys), who fell in love with the musicians, that love is there for them too. They too can lock the Rammstein in their fantasies and have a nice ¨time masturbating – for which they kindly provided the instruments.

    • mpLarose

      Plus I’d say he’s not really raping the girl in the song, he’s imagining it. He says he locked her in his fantasies, and before the parts where he’s holding her, she’s crying etc. he says “I close my eyes” so for me it’s obvious he’s only imagining it and probably masturbating to it. Which bring us to your comment and the special edition with dildos.

  • Hans

    I think this song has something to do with a sex traveller. Warm water, brown skin and sun.

    You know… In Thailand, Cambodia, Phillipines there is love for everyone.

    Nobody hear her cry because she can only cry when she’s alone.

    I know.. Pussy is about sex travellers.

  • someone

    the verses are telling what actually happened, like that he couldnt have sex with the women and the choruses are about him masturbating and fantasizing about them.

    @Rammkrieg
    whole choruses seem to tell that.
    about “noone sees her crying”: well some people get excited by their partner crying, and without all the other people in his imagination noone sees her. since why would you even want to imagine someone to see you and stop/disturb you

  • chell

    ‘Sie wehrt sich nicht’ is probably better translated as ‘she doesn’t struggle’ or ‘she doesn’t fight back’. Nit picking,I know but different all the same.

  • Youssef

    I agree with Blasenmund, this song is defiantly about masturbation and does a great job lyrically.

  • EMR

    Till using a water metaphor makes lots of sense if you think about it. From Wikipedia “In 1978 Lindemann was a participant in the European Junior Swimming Championships in Florence, Was shortlisted to go to 1980 Olympics in Moscow but discontinued the sport soon after. According to Lindemann, “I never liked the sport school actually, it was very intense. But as a child you don’t object.” “

  • Till’s Homosexual Son

    Till is the best singer ever 😀 Rammstein is one band keeping metal weird, and awesome! If only they could come to South Africa :/ Then I would love them all :D(More)

  • Katzenjammer

    Umm. “So braune Haut” doesn’t need to be translated so literally. How ’bout “such tan skin” – I mean, Germany, for all the clampdowns on freedom of verbal expression, can be far more relaxed about nudity/FKK than most English-speaking countries. Summertime, relaxing in the sun, getting tan. Could be totally harmless, but I didn’t write the lyrics.

    James has an excellent analysis.

    As a female, though, I could see interpreting “Ich halt sie fest/Und keiner sieht sie weinen/Sie macht die Augen zu/Sie wehrt sich nicht”, als ob die Frau is upset, being comforted, and is in fact willing. But I also like the potentially menacing double meaning.

    It’s a song, not a textbook, oder?

  • Sole

    Another simmilarity with “Feuer und Wasser” is when he says “Ich halt’ sie fest”.

  • Heidi Marie

    I think this is what Rammstein could be exploring. But the best art makes you think and inspires you to see yourself for one moment as you really are. And that makes you be more who you are;)

  • Heidi Marie

    It has been my experience that underlying every emotion is love. For some reason, do not see ourselves as being deserving of anyone’s love. Sadly, especially loving the one person we need to love most; our self. How can anyone love another person if they are unable to love themselves?

  • Kara

    i think that this song is saying that there is love for everyone, but somepeople can never find it. They think they have, but its just another lie.

  • Skywan

    Oh, and “love is for everyone”, I think it’s about the idea that everyone can use his imagination.. leading to the concept that “masturbation is for everyone”

  • Skywan

    The line “Such brown skin” makes me think he’s not talking about a girl.

  • I don’t think people should read too much into till lindemann’s lyrics, rammstein have always said they are init to shock. Plus from the looks of it these are just lyrics of a lonely imagination, they’re probably till lindemanns thoughts himself…it doesn’t mean that if ppl listen to this they will go out and start raping or spunking over girls…

  • jethro

    i see no rape in this song.

    “close my eyes”, “my fantasy”, even the “she doesn’t defend..” states that in the possible intercourse both are willing. (i would guess that in actual rape there’d be some resisting? unless the hero is raping a corpse.)

  • GERMANY

    STORM46
    how do you know.were you on the boat?

  • CDizzle717

    By “So braune Haut” does he mean she is a Nigger?

  • Rammkrieg

    This comment is directed @ Ahirry, the song isn’t about masturbation, I don’t know where you could get such an idea. It’s obviously about rape “no one sees her crying” “she doesn’t defend herself”. I mean, the only way you could contemplate it being about masturbation is “I lock her up in my imagination” but Rammstein provides no more hints other than that. It’s far more likely to be about as other people stated; someone who feels love deprived and ends up raping someone. Also to top that off, if the song WAS about masturbation the setting about warm water and beautiful bodies would be unnecessary part of the song, you’re definetely wrong on that one.

  • autobahn

    Sie wehrt sich nicht i think means she does not fight back. But I may be wrong.

  • Hungarian kid

    Im my opinion,it is about masturbation,as we can se,the fantasy in his mind is getting a bit bulrried as he thinks of his lack of self-esteem:
    “Warm water
    Beautiful bodies
    Not for me
    It’s running away”
    (maybe “it’s running away is the blood,dwindling in his penis,as the fantasy getting blurried)
    But then he concentrates on details that,how should I say, “may cause a better erction”(fine curves,good build,full mouth),brings back the false reality of the fantasy.

  • Charismatic Enigma

    A thought comes to mind: If the speaker’s fantasy is of raping the girl he’s lusting after, then perhaps we should be grateful he’s only using it as masturbation material instead of actually going out and raping her….

  • poop face

    sounds like the guy masturbates about this girl at the beach he saw and then at the end he actually rapes her.

  • Boo

    One of the great things about rammstein is that every one have his own interpretation of the song. This is why i don’t like the explaining note at the end, it imposes an interpretation of the song. For me, the song is about masturbation, but i won’t say you are wrong if you think it’s about rape.

  • SeparateSkunk

    All in all is a very good song. Doesn’t matter what it is about. Don’t be too interested in what it is about. Feel it, that’s all. it can be about the extinction of the polar bears, so? enjoy listening. probably the Rammstein,if they read your comments of course (which is quite improbable), poke a lot of fun at your analised comments. digg deeper or don’t at all, don’t be naive. Enjoy the song, that’s all. Good luck!!!

  • Salem

    I agree with AlphaLambda. Upon a closer inspection of the lyrics, it seems that he repeats the line “I close my eyes” a lot, such as to mean that the reason why she doesn’t defend herself is because he is fantasizing.
    S.

  • Kazzandra

    From fantasizing and masturbating to actually raping the girl he saw on the beach– yikes. This is the stuff nightmares are made of, and it also falls on the side of ‘Fantasy is dangerous,’ an opinion of which I am not fond because of its ramifications for me.

  • Alpha Lambda

    Looking at the translation, I interpret it differently than what has been said that the theme is rape. The first three lines in the chorus give me the impression that he’s fanticizing about her and can have her however he wants in his head but in reality he can’t have her (even in his pursuits).
    The last part of the chorus seems to denote that he starts fanticizing about her in a more violent or forceful manner by his own lonliness, but I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s about rape.

  • Dead

    It’s about masturbation and rape… great song!

  • XIII

    Correction.

    “Die Liebe ist für alle da – auch für mich”

    “(the) love is there for everyone – also for me (for me too)”

    till has been using the fire and water metaphor since the beginning (almost all rammstein songs have it)

    here’s a list:

    1.Wollt Ihr Das Bett in Flammen Sehen – Do you want to see the bed in flames
    2.Asche zu Asche – Asches to asches
    3.Seemann – Sailor
    4.Du Reichst So Gut – You smell so well
    5.Laichzeit – Spawning time
    6.Rammstein – Rammstein
    7.Sehnsucht – Longing
    8.Klavier – Piano
    9.Alter Mann – Old man
    10.Eifersucht – Jealous
    11.Mein Herz Brennt – My heart burns
    12.Sonne – Sun
    13.Feuer Frei! – Fire Free!
    14.Spieluhr – Music Box
    15.Nebel – Fog
    16.Reise, Reise – Travel, travel
    17.Benzin – Petrol
    18.Mann gegen Mann – Man against Man
    19.Rosenrot – Rose-red
    20.Hilf mir – Help me
    21.Feuer und Wasser – Fire and Water
    22.Haifisch – Shark
    23.Donaukinder – Children of Danube

    he also uses a lot of heart, sky, light, sun and animal references.

  • taylia

    I think this song is amazing and I love the lyrics to all their songs. For a song about masturbation the lyrics are incredibly powerful and amazing.

  • Blasenmund

    It sure is a song about masturbation, and a good one at that. I think any guy or woman for that matter can relate to the events in the song. How you notice a person that “arouse” you and how you “lock” her/him in your imagination (as the lyrics put it), where he/she becomes a willing subject (no resistance) and you well, play it all out in your mind. It also refers to that not all our sexual thoughts are kosher, where sometimes we can be rough and hard (even borderline rapist) and also how masturbation is a double-edged sword which is not always a fulfilling event, but can be an act of frustration and anger. Relationships can be hard to be in, and also hard to get. But in our imaginations we are führers of our own life and not least the opposite sex.

    I like the song alot, and think it’s lyrically one of the strongest on the album. Whilst Pussy is a tongue-in-cheek song about sex as a commodity and a stab at american prejudices against germans (and other europeans) this is far more poignant and does not rely on shock tactics and humour. Rammstein at their best, imho.

  • Taryn

    Its only in his imagination that she doesn’t defend herself. Since she continues crying, he figures that her eyes need to be closed, thus making her willing, since it worked for him. So, in the story, the man is of the opinion that in order to have sex, he must seem friendly and proper (speak well and be friendly). The sun is his own personal light that he shows upon the bodies, and the sun makes these bodies glisten with help of the warm water, which is warm due to the sun’s heat.

  • Till

    There is one thing I don’t understand: when this song, and this one only, leaked on the internet (as far as I can remember, it happened in July) there was a big fuss and everybody was mad at everyone. But now, when the whole album is available through torrents, rapid share etc. no one says a word…

  • James

    “The water theme is all through out Feuer and Wasser as is the singer’s apparent feelings of rejection and inferiority. He is in this girl’s shadow so all he can do is clumsily reach out and grab for her with wet hands. In liebe, he’s still watching a woman, or women in the water, still feeling isolated, inferior, unlovable, but this time instead of just impotently reaching out as the object of his desire slides past, he takes matters into his own hands and “makes” her love him.”

    Just a short note with that explanation. Water when used as a theme refers to deception. For example think of a spear fisher trying to catch a fish and the fish isn’t really where it is looking at it through the water.

    What I’m getting at here is water is both being used as some sort of separation, but also it is being used as deception, which can be seen in the song Hafisch. But water is definitely being used as a reoccurring theme throughout the entire album, or more so deception and seclusion.

    Warmes Wasser
    Schöne Leiber
    Wie sie glänzen

    This is suggesting that for someone who has been so love deprived, the water is being the theme of deception. Where the women are in the water, and “shining, or glimmering” which is making them beautiful. However this is not the case. The person seeing the women is so love deprived that he actually is clinging on to these women for the fact they are women.

    Thats a short example of what i mean with reference to the lyrics. It re-occurs throughout the song and i could give a full explanation if you don’t quite understand what i mean, but i think that example should suffice.

  • Heidi

    Dude, on the meaning, the marraige part, totally know what that’s like. You really try to keep that person any way you can; even masturbating to the idea of being with them when they really don’t want you that way. Some things are just not meant to be.

  • Storm46

    It’s not all about masturbation. The beginning of the song is the real event that leads to masturbation.

  • Bobby

    I know the direct translation of “Liebe ist für alle da” is “There is love for everyone,” but can this mean something else? Does it have a double meaning?

  • Neomataznay

    I love the explanation at the bottom of the translation! A true,true fan I must say!

  • Ahirry

    This song is about masturbation..

  • Rammstein_Queen

    in the sentence: who wants to fuck has to be kind, kind is not the proper word… Till says muss freundlich sein that means he should be friendly

  • Dill

    Ich sperr sie ein in meine Fantasie Actually means “I confine/jail/cage/lock her (up) in my Fantasy. Einsperren is the actual verb, but Till doesn’t place the separable prefix “ein” at the end of the sentence where it should go.

    Grammatically, the sentence ought to read “Ich sperr sie in meine Fantasie ein,” but he’s taking artistic liberty with the lyrics.

    And “Formen” does mean form, but here it would mean something along the lines of “shape” or “contour” (talking about a woman’s body).

    German isn’t the easiest language to translate into English. I’ve done a lot of German to English lyric translations before and it can get tricky, especially when you don’t know what the lyricist was thinking at the time!

  • johnny last

    ooh on my 1st post i meant
    Shouldn’t IT be She doesn’t protect herself

    and
    i think Und rede fein should be And talking fine instead of And talks fine

    She doesn’t protects herself
    Shouldn’t be She doesn’t protect herself
