Rammstein Amour lyric with English translation

Die Liebe ist ein wildes Tier
Sie atmet dich sie sucht nach dir
Nistet auf gebrochenen Herzen
Geht auf Jagd bei Kuss und Kerzen
Saugt sich fest an deinen Lippen
Gräbt sich Dinge durch die Rippen
Lässt sich fallen weich wie Schnee
Erst wird es heiss dann kalt am Ende tut es weh

Amour Amour
Alle wollen nur dich zähmen
Amour Amour am Ende
gefangen zwischen deinen Zähnen

Die Liebe ist ein wildes Tier
Sie beisst und kratzt und tritt nach mir
Hält mich mit tausend Armen fest
Zerrt mich in ihr Liebesnest
Frisst mich auf mit Haut und Haar
und wirbt mich wieder aus nach Tag und Jahr
Lässt sich fallen weich wie Schnee
Erst wird es heiss dann kalt am Ende tut es weh

Amour Amour
Alle wollen nur dich zähmen
Amour Amour am Ende
gefangen zwischen deinen Zähnen

Die Liebe ist ein wildes Tier
In die Falle gehst du ihr
In die Augen starrt sie dir
Verzaubert wenn ihr Blick dich trifft

Bitte bitte gib mir Gift
Love is a wild animal
It breathes you it looks for you
It nests upon broken hearts
and goes hunting when there are kisses and candles
It sucks tightly on your lips
and digs tunnels through your ribs
It drops softly like snow
First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts

Amour Amour
Everyone just wants to tame you
Amour Amour in the end
caught between your teeth

Love is a wild animal
It bites and scratches and steps towards me
It holds me tightly with a thousand arms
and drags me into its love nest
It devours me completely
and retches me back out after many years
It drops softly like snow
First it gets hot then cold in the end it hurts

Amour Amour
Everyone just wants to tame you
Amour Amour in the end
caught between your teeth

Love is a wild animal
You fall into its trap
It stares into your eyes
Spellbound when its gaze hits you

Please please give me poison

The song talks about love and the pain that goes with it. The song compares love to a wild animal that looks forward to catch and keep people with its long teeth and arms. It also talks about the subtle nature of love (lässt sich fallen weich wie schnee- it falls like soft snow) but also how it often ends ( am ende tut es weh- at the ends it hurts).

  • Bart Hugh Dennis Welch II

    Wouldn’t “Frisst mich auf mit Haut und Haar” translate into “Eats me with Skin and Hair” (Sex maybe? “Eating him” meaning of course, er, taking his member?) instead of “It devours me completely” (Which would be somewhere around “Es verschlingt mich völlig” if translated back into German verbatim)

    • eduppies

      “mit Haut und Haar” is a german expression that can best be translated as “completely” or “totally”
      so it would be “eats me up completely”

  • doesntmatter

    Digs tunnels through your ribs, if that’s not one of the most accurate descriptions of the feeling I’ve heard I don’t know what is.

  • anton pepaj

    is there anything normal that Till and his Bad think ?

  • Jamie Baxter

    So the lyric should be “wuergt mich wieder aus” not “wirbt”

  • Oldenburger

    yo, guys… Treten also means to step depending on the context so it is perfectly right. Try to learn that there are different meanings for words and that the most common one isn´t always the right one 🙂

    • Tagu

      exactly, I was reading through all the comments, waiting for someone to explain this 🙂 actually here the translation is right. It means not ‘kicks at you’, but “steps towards you; comes to you”

      I adore the lyrics of Rammstein. In original they are even better than if someone tries to translate them. I came to Germany and learnt German only to understand Rammstein 😀

  • Bero

    Oké, so no one has comment since last year,
    but all i want to say is..
    This is NOT poetry…
    this is first class ART..

  • Sonne

    Such a beautiful true song!
    And guitar at the beginning is just awesome!
    @Artemis Yeah I agree with you though all my friends think it’s stupid…

  • LadyCrove

    Even tho I’m not much into ballades, I love this song… Only they could explain love in such a beautiful and cruel way… Feels like bein teared appart and eaten alive…

  • Gonzalo

    What a poetry!

  • Aubrei

    wow I seriously don’t ponder the thought of love very often but I supose that this song is a good way to explain something so deep.

  • I love this song
    Who still think know what mean a true ballade don’t listen the other bands because are play just ballades Listen some beauty and heavy ballades like Rammstein’s Amour/ohne dich/nebel/ donaukinder/ spring /mutter and more
    If some is not agreed with what i said can fight with me on chat on ahoy_jagan Peace \m/ and Rock on

  • White Eagle

    Brilliant poetry in the original German! Unfortunately the translation here is clumsy and at times outright incorrect. (tritt nach dir = kicks at you)

  • Seastreets

    Sie beisst und kratzt und tritt nach mir = It bites and scratches and kicks towards me

  • Chicken

    I’m french and amour means love and adore means adore
    there’s no word in french for love affairs it would be histoire d’amour
    btw this song is awesome

  • Lizzie

    I think your thinking of adore. Amour means love though it isn’t French, but the dictionary uses the word affair in the definition. I think affair didn’t mean cheating, it meant just the actual thing of loving intensely.

  • ????????

    ???????????? ????????, ??????? ????????? ??? ????!

  • Spyke

    An absolutely beautiful song, so perfectly worded and sung, it can bring a tear to your eye…

    all the pain, the joy, all of that for love…absolutely beautiful…

  • Steve

    One of the greatest rammstein songs ever, its like a love poem, but put to music, and i love how it gets heavier later in the song. Definitely a very emotionla song, all about love and the twitsts and turns lovers go through.

  • dis

    this song makes you feel the conflict of love and the range of emotions it takes you through. it guts you but you still long for it… beautiful.

  • Immortal

    dude amour doesnt mean love affair…wtf

  • Zack

    And 'amour' doesn't mean 'a love affair', its french for love

  • Zack

    This song is so awesome! One of their best in my mind

    • bizzeeb

      What I particularly love about Rammstein is the lyrics can stand alone. My 84 year old grandmother can read this and appreciate it.

      Granted the music itself isn’t always her thing, but the poetry in the lyrics is something anyone can relate to.

  • ShadowDragon

    Amour means "a love affair"

  • Artemis

    and that is why i choose to be alone. like god, the illusion of love succeeds it's reality.

    • Werner

      It's been a while since I've read/heard a truth as true and as enlightening as what you said there …

      Thanks
