Dark castle over there, built on ruins,
filled with dust, fog and mysterious flair...
the place where my mind and my love is
and the everlasting night I wanted to share.

The cloudy sky hangs high above it,
the air is heavy at the lee.
I long for a small part of the walls, just a bit
that brings the memory back to me.

On the big, wide country I cast my eyes
full of doubts it comes back again.
And all what I`m damned to see now
is just the dirty black rain.

What happened with you, ol` rustling river?
What about your big brother, the sea?
All changed, all died ... it makes me shiver ...
And it`s so terrible for me.

And when I came over again to all this,
like the dirty black rain I was fallin` down.
I never knew what it means to miss ...
now one other has to wear the crown.

So don`t dare to say you need me.
And don`t try to get me back here.
Perhaps there`s another life, we`ll see...
Just one thing: I STILL LOVE YOU, MY DEAR.
