Rammstein Ein Lied lyrics with English translation

Buy Rammstein song “Ein Lied” on Amazon

Wer Gutes tut dem wird vergeben Whoever does good will be forgiven
So seid recht gut auf allen Wegen Therefore be good in all your journeys
Dann bekommt ihr bald Besuch Then you’ll soon have visitors
wir kommen mit dem Liederbuch We’ll come with the song book
 
Wir sind für die Musik geboren We were born for music
Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren We are the servants of your ears
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid Whenever you’re sad
spielen wir für euch We play for you
 
Wenn ihr ohne Sünde lebt If you live without sin
Einander brav das Händchen gebt And give each other a hand
Wenn ihr nicht zur Sonne schielt If you don’t squint into the sun
wird für euch ein Lied gespielt a song will be played for you
 
Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren We are the servants of your ears
Wir sind für die Musik geboren We were born for music
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid Whenever you’re sad
spielen wir für euch we play for you
 
Wenn ihr nicht schlafen könnt Whenever you can’t sleep
sei euch ein Lied vergönnt May you be treated to a song
Und der Himmel bricht And heaven cracks
Ein Lied fällt weich vom Himmelslicht A song falls softly from the light of heaven
 
Wir sind für die Musik geboren We were born for music
Wir sind die Diener eurer Ohren We are the servants of your ears
Immer wenn ihr traurig seid Whenever you’re sad
spielen wir für euch 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.

  1. The riff of the song sounds exactly like the beginning of Metallica’s “The Day That Never Comes” from the Death Magnetic album

  2. I love this song. Whenever I feel alone or feel bad for something that happened I listen to it and it really helps me, it feels so warm… It feel like Till was giving me a hug. It helped me out many times.

        • You can’t really ”love” someone you actually don’t know. Save this word for your close people, your actual loved ones, hon…

        • Oh, honey. You can’t really ”love” someone you don’t actually know. Save this word for your close ones, for your actual, REAL loved ones. Don’t throw this word around. As great Till is, he’s a stranger to you, you can just appreciate his art but not ”love” him 0 show your love to your family instead…

      • Okay, sweetie, that’s too much. As talented and incredible Till is (although Rammstein is not just Till, hon), it’s absolutely unhealthy to be attached to a stranger and put your will to life into him… One day you’ll understand.

  3. i love this song. everytime i come home i turn off all the lights. light candles(real ones) and only have that as a light source. then set this on chrome cast(on youtube) and just relax

  4. When I went through Joplin, Missouri after the tornadoes, I was listening to this. Its a pretty powerful combination.

  5. i lovee this song. i went through a stage of not being able to sleep, and i started listening to this song at night-and it reallly helped me. and looking at the lyrics-its also a beautiful song. rammstein for ever (: x

  6. That's an awesome song. I think that when a friend of mine gets sad about something I can play this song for them.

  7. Requesting piano conversions from guitar tabs.

    Would like all songs if possible if not please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks Harley
