Lyrics of Turn to Stone

The city streets are empty now
(The lights don't shine no more)
And so the songs are way down low

Die Straßen der Stadt sind jetzt leer
(Die Lichter leuchten nicht nicht mehr)
Und so sind die Songs so tief unten

A sound that flows into my mind
(The echoes of the daylight)
Of everything that is alive
(In my blue world)

Ein Sound, der mir in den Sinn fließt
(Das Echo der Sommerzeit)
Von allem, was lebendig ist
(In meinem blauen Welt)

I turn to stone when you are gone
I turn to stone
I turn to stone, when you comin' home
I can't go on
Turn to stone, when you are gone
I turn to stone

Ich wende mich an Stein, wenn du weg bist
I zu Stein verwandelt
Ich wende mich an Stein, wenn Sie 'comin Hause
I kann nicht weitergehen
Zu Stein verwandelt werden, wenn du weg bist
I zu Stein verwandelt

The dying embers of a night
(A fire that slowly fades till dawn)
Still glow upon the wall so bright

Der sterbende Glut einer Nacht
(Ein Feuer, das langsam verblasst bis zum Morgengrauen)
Noch leuchten an der Wand so hell

The tired streets that hide away
(From here to everywhere they go)
Roll past my door into the day
(In my blue world)

Der müde Straßen, die sich verstecken
(Von hier bis überall, wo sie gehen)
Rolle an meiner Tür vorbei in den Tag
(In meinem blauen Welt)



Yes, I'm turnin' to stone
'Cause you ain't coming home
Why ain't you comin' home
If I'm turnin' to stone
You've been gone for so long
And I can't carry on
Yes, I'm turnin', I'm turnin'
I'm turnin' to stone

Ja, ich bin turnin 'zu Stein
Weil du nicht nach Hause kommen
Warum bist du nicht Comin 'Home
Wenn ich turnin "zu Stein
Sie haben schon so lange weg
Und ich kann nicht weitermachen
Ja, ich bin turnin ', ich bin turnin "
Ich bin turnin "zu Stein

The dancing shadows on the wall
(The two-step in the hall)
Are all I see since you've been gone

Der tanzende Schatten an der Wand
(Die Zwei-Schritt in der Halle)
Sind alles was ich sehe da du gegangen bist

Through all I sit here and I wait
(I turn to stone, I turn to stone)
You will return again some day
(To my blue world)

Durch alles, was ich sitze hier und warte
(I in Stein zu verwandeln, ich zu Stein)
Sie werden wiederkommen Tages
(Zu meinem blauen Welt)
