Rammstein Ohne Dich lyrics with English translation

Buy Rammstein song “Ohne Dich” on Amazon

Ich werde in die Tannen gehen I’m going to go into the fir trees
Dahin wo ich sie zuletzt gesehen There where I last saw her
Doch der Abend wirft ein Tuch aufs Land But the evening is throwing a cloth upon the land
und auf die Wege hinterm Waldesrand and upon the ways behind the edge of the forest
Und der Wald er steht so schwarz und leer And the forest it is so black and empty
Weh mir, oh weh Woe is me, oh woe
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr And the birds sing no more
 
Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein Without you I cannot be
Ohne dich Without you
Mit dir bin ich auch allein With you I am alone too
Ohne dich Without you
Ohne dich zähl ich die Stunden ohne dich Without you I count the hours without you
Mit dir stehen die Sekunden With you the seconds stand still
Lohnen nicht They aren’t worth it
 
Auf den Ästen in den Gräben On the branches in the ditches
ist es nun still und ohne Leben it’s now silent and without life
Und das Atmen fällt mir ach so schwer And breathing becomes oh so hard for me
Weh mir, oh weh Woe is me, oh woe
Und die Vögel singen nicht mehr And the birds sing no more
 
Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein Without you I cannot be
Ohne dich Without you
Mit dir bin ich auch allein With you I am alone too
Ohne dich Without you
Ohne dich zähl ich die Stunden ohne dich Without you I count the hours without you
Mit dir stehen die Sekunden With you the seconds stand still
Lohnen nicht ohne dich They aren’t worth it without you

“Ohne dich” was released as the third single from the album on 22 November 2004 in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Other countries’ releases followed. It follows a slow, even romantic balladic style. The central motif is Without you, I cannot be, without you…, With you, I am also alone, without you…

 

The single includes as its 6th track the so-called beta version of what should have been part of Mutter. “Ohne dich” was planned for Mutter, but then dismissed.

The video was filmed in the Kaun Valley and on the Pitz Valley glacier in Tyrol, Austria. It shows the band members climbing and hiking.

  3. It was this song that started me off on Rammstein. Beautifully written, nice beat. This is my all time favourite song of Rammstein.

  4. This song is so beautiful it makes me wanna cry all night. Uhm, actually I do, but what ever.
    Just one thing, “Weh mir, oh weh” should be “Hurt me, oh pain” or something like that.

  5. Dude I dont know why but just thinking about the song makes me cry, so that makes it a pretty effective one I guess.

  6. This song sends shivers down my spine… The overwhelming emotion is something beautiful… something rare.

    This song is an instrumental part in all of our lives, I can guarantee.
