English Lyrics

I live for her

I live for her since you know
I first met her
I don’t remember how, but
she entered my soul and she stayed there.
I live for her because she makes
my heart vibrate strongly
I live for her and it’s not a burden.
 
I live for her also, you know it
and don’t be jealous for that
she belongs to everyone who
has an unsatiable need
like a radio in a room
of the one who is alone but now knows
that she’s also for him, and that’s why
I live for her.
She’s a muse that invites us
to softly touch her with our fingers
Through a piano
death is far away
I live for her.
I live for her, she often knows
how to be sweet and sensual
sometimes it hits you in the head
but it’s a punch that doesn’t hurt.
I live for her, I know she makes me
travel from town to town
I suffer a little, but at least I live for her.
 
I feel pain when she leaves
I live for her inside the hotels
She grows with a great pleasure
I live for her in a whirl.
Through my voice
it expands and gives birth to love.
 
I live for her, I have nothing else
and how many others will I find/meet
who have written on their face:
I live for her.
 
I live for her
up on a stage or against the wall…
I live on the edge for her.
…even if tomorrow will be rough.
I live to the limit for her.
Every day
a conquest
the protagonist
will always be her.
 
I live for her because from now on
I have no other way out
because you know
I’ve never truly betrayed music.
I live for her because she gives me
pauses and notes in freedom
If I had another life, I’d live it
I’d live it for her.
I live for her – the music
I live for her.
I live for her, she’s unique
I live for her
I live for her
I live
for her.
