Rammstein Sonne lyric with English translation

 
1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9 und aus

Alle warten auf das Licht
fürchtet euch, fürchtet euch nicht
die Sonne scheint mir aus den Augen
sie wird heut nacht nicht untergehen

... und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

eins... hier kommt die Sonne
zwei... hier kommt die Sonne
drei... sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
vier... hier kommt die Sonne

Die Sonne scheint mir aus den händen
kann verbrennen kann euch blenden
wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
legt sich heiss auf das Gesicht

Sie wird heut Nacht nicht untergehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

eins... hier kommt die Sonne
zwei... hier kommt die Sonne
drei... sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
vier... hier kommt die Sonne

fünf... hier kommt die Sonne
sechs... hier kommt die Sonne
sieben... sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
acht... hier kommt die Sonne

Die Sonne scheint mir aus den Händen
kann verbrennen, kann dich blenden
Wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
legt sich heiss auf dein Gesicht
legt sich schmerzend auf die Brust
das Gleichgewicht wird zum Verlusst

läßt dich hard zu Boden gehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

eins... hier kommt die Sonne
zwei... hier kommt die Sonne
drei... sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
vier... und wird nie vom Himmel fallen

fünf... hier kommt die Sonne
sechs... hier kommt die Sonne
sieben... sie ist der hellste Stern von allen
acht... hier kommt die Sonne

1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9 and out

All waiting for the light
have fear, fear not
the sun shines out of my eyes
she will not go down tonight

... and the world counts loud to ten

one... here comes the sun
two... here comes the sun
three... she's the brightest star of all
four... here comes the sun

the sun shines out of my hands
can burn, can blind you
if she breaks out of my fists
lie hot on your face

she would not go down to night
and the world counts loud to ten

one... here comes the sun
two... here comes the sun
three... she's the brightest star of all
four... here comes the sun

five... here comes the sun
six... here comes the sun
seven... she is the brightest star of all
eight... here comes the sun

the sun shines out of my hands
can burn, can blind you
when she breaks out of my fists
lie hot on your face
lays painful on your chest
the balance come to loss

lets you go down hard
and the world counts loud to ten

one... here comes the sun
two... here comes the sun
three... she's the brightest star of all
four... and will never fall from heaven

five... here comes the sun
six... here comes the sun
seven... she is the brightest star of all
eight... here comes the sun

This song was originally going to be used as heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko’s entrance music, but was never used. The demo name of the song was Klitschko. Even without the use as Klitschko’s entrance music, the song still references boxing through the verses and the counting to ten, as a referee does for a potential KO.

  • That One Cancer BoSs

    If you watch the interview the did on this song they said that Till wanted to make the video about a boxer but when they got the idea for snowhite the all decided it was better.

  • O

    I would have thought this song is about God and the End.

  • Lucas Metallicaowboy Andrietti

    The video for this song threw me way off I have to say.

  • Illusion

    There are two places in here where the word “heiss” is translated to “ice” (Eis) rather than hot (heiss). Those lines should both be translated “lays down hot on your face”, which is basically the opposite of what’s written (ironic?). Not sure if anyone does edits on these pages, but that would be a good one.

    • External

      Thanks, it is now updated

  • Fang_endlich_an_zu_leben10

    Was? diese Übersetzung ist scheiße…….. „legt sich EIS auf das Gesicht”. „legt sich heiss auf das Gesicht” nicht. …… acht, neun, UND aus? nein….. UND sollte da sein nicht…. Zwei Probleme mit diese Seite Übersetzung… noch mehr? Vermutlich……..

  • David

    I thought that the song has something to do with 2nd world war’s hidden matters from behind the scenes of nowadays. Sun = the symbol of the nazis.

  • Where

    Never thought a Rammstein song would teach me German counting.

  • Guest

    This is how you say the numbers in German.

    “eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sieben, acht, neun.”

  • Where

    This is how you say the numbers in German.

    “eins, zwei, null, vier, drei, fünf, sieben, acht, neun.”

  • Buttsex1994

    BOXING IS GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MetalMaven

    i read a story where everyone new when the sun was going nova, it reminded me of that.

  • Collin

    @Abicus
    “Sonne” is in german “female”
    “female” = Die
    “male” = Der
    so, “Die Sonne” is right

    • bashar

      Sonne means Sun man

  • Suarga

    Imagination does most of the work in Rammstein’s songs. Till tells you to think depressed and angsty with deep german words and you can and will fill in the blanks as dark as you can.

  • Insert Name

    You guys rock!!! I really want you guys to come to the UK again and perform all your best songs. Couldnt come to concert last time, PLS come!!! Rammstien sind die beste Band der Welt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tyler

    This song has no clear cut meaning. Originally written for a boxer, tossed around as a song about the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima, ended in Snow White. Make what you want out of the song, not every song has to be about something concrete.

  • Savermeister

    @Jon A

    It’s another boxing reference, in continuation of the metaphor. It refers to the trainer icing the boxer’s wounds after the loss.

  • Nick Laney

    Dieser ist mein vielst liebst Song.

  • Jon A

    I believe the lyrics are meant to be “heiß” instead of “eis”; makes more sense, if the sun breaks out, it’s not likely to freeze you, it’s likely to “lie hot on your face” 🙂

  • Sonne

    Rammstein has started for me from this song 🙂
    However my first assosiation wasn’t nuclear bomb or snowhite thought they fit perfectly but movie Parfumer when he is going to be killed and he charmes everybody with the scent if you know what I’m talking about.
    P.S. Klichko brothers are the best boxers of all time!!!

  • Fallen Angel

    I know what you meen man, highschool amateur wrestling and martial arts team. Good luck on your first fight and let die sonne shine on you.

  • Joseph

    I’ve got my first MMA fight coming up in 2 months, I will definitely use this song to walk out to. I can’t listen to it without getting psyched up, great song.

  • Charismatic Enigma

    @Abicus – in English, we only have the word “the”, whereas in German they have “die”, “der”, “den”, “das”, “dem”, and even more, and each has situations where it’s the correct one to use.

  • just for you to know,the band had 40 video options before chooosing the snow withe theme. and one of them was the hiroshima bomb,because it fit perfectly.

  • Ronald Trip

    So, Sonne is about boxing. Never knew that. I must be darker than I expected, because I always interpreted it as being about total nuclear annihilation.

    People counting the seconds they still have to live. The sun shining from the eyes and hands, with the potential to blind and burn, I’ve always thought of as contemplating a nuclear strike. The part of breaking out of the fists I always interpreted as losing control and launching the missiles, after which the heat of the initial flash lays hot on your face. Then you feel the pain on your chest as the shockwave knocks you over.

    • Nahanni Southern

      Yep, that’s part of it for sure!….

    • Till Ramest

      It was one of the ideas for it. Based off of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    • D’Arcy Rien

      Wow, that’s the most contrived interpretation I’ve ever heard. Just because there’s a countdown, and mentions of the sun? Ridiculous man. So cheesy and cliched.

  • Abicus

    So it doesnt matter if u use Der or Die? its both Masc and Femn?
    Thanks for clearing that up. =)

  • Both of them Abicus
    On this song i can make the best HeadBang ever:D woohoo
    I love this song especialy Hitler name in Sonne Place 😛
    No offense but Rock on guys \m/

  • Abicus

    which is correct… Die Sonne “or” Der Sonne?

  • Charismatic Enigma

    I note this translation is incorrect — the lyrics are “legt sich heiss auf das Gesicht”, not “Eis”.

    Although, this would also work very well; the lyrics would then translate to “The sun shines out of my hands; it can burn, can blind you. When it breaks out of my fists, ice will lay upon your face.”

  • Ryan

    i heard that one of the other ideas was a video about the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima (which would have matched the lyrics and the depressed-sounding vocalization).

  • Miriam

    *or 6 dwarfs xD

  • Miriam

    To Courtney:
    Rammstein is not a Swedish band…They’re German xD
    And yes, Switzerland is a long way from Amerika… O_O

    Till describes writing this song whilst thinking of a boxing match. The counting to ten. He says he pictures the boxer coming into the arena with his arms raised as the audience sings “Hiere kommt die Sonne”.
    But it changed to being a musicvideo with Snowwhite and the 7 dwarfs ’cause the band once played the song during the cartoon, and it looked great together.
    You should go to youtube.com and see the “Making of…” videos. You learn more about the band and who they are.

  • Ezzy

    I was 8 months pregnant when Rammstein came to the Uk so I couldnt go to their concert. My hubby and all our friends went 🙁 they said it was FANTASTIC….I still regret missing them live.
    Im a 40 year old suburbian house wife, but Rammstein ROCK!!!

  • Seb
