Rammstein Ein Lied lyric with English translation

Wer Gutes tut dem wird vergeben
So seid recht gut auf allen Wegen
Dann bekommt ihr bald Besuch
wir kommen mit dem Liederbuch

Wir sind für die Musik geboren
Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid
spielen wir für euch

Wenn ihr ohne Sünde lebt
Einander brav das Händchen gebt
Wenn ihr nicht zur Sonne schielt
wird für euch ein Lied gespielt

Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren
Wir sind für die Musik geboren
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid
spielen wir für euch

Wenn ihr nicht schlafen könnt
sei euch ein Lied vergönnt
Und der Himmel bricht
Ein Lied fällt weich vom Himmelslicht

Wir sind für die Musik geboren
Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid
spielen wir für euch
Whoever does good will be forgiven
Therefore be good in all your journeys
Then you'll soon have visitors
We'll come with the song book

We were born for music
We are the servants of your ears
Whenever you're sad
We play for you

If you live without sin
And give each other a hand
If you don't squint into the sun
a song will be played for you

We are the servants of your ears
We were born for music
Whenever you're sad
we play for you

Whenever you can't sleep
May you be treated to a song
And heaven cracks
A song falls softly from the light of heaven

We were born for music
We are the servants of your ears
Whenever you're sad
We play for you

“Ein Lied” (A song) is one of Rammstein’s few slow songs, such as Nebel. It features acoustic guitars, bass, ethereal synthesizer sounds somewhere in between strings and choir, and a theremin-like keyboard lead doubled by another synthesized string part. Till’s lyrics are partly spoken and partly sung in low breathy tones. He sings “Spielen wir für euch” [We play for you]; it is a song for the fans of the band.

The song is by far Rammstein’s softest song; it has no percussion, and is sort of quiet and dreamy. The end of the song is met without much spectacle, as the keyboards die away.

    This is one of my favorite Rammstein songs, second only to Dalai Lama. The melody is so beautiful.
