Foreword

This music video was almost censored under the guise of youth protection. (source)
Being a young person who strongly disagrees with this music video deserving censoring, as it shows several important stigmatized parts of life, which are actually also already shown in video games, I was glad to receive the request to translate this. Besides, it’s no secret that I am a fan of Joachim Witt. I love German music, and he is basically a legend when it comes to it.
Because it was judged to be safe for minors in Germany, there will be no age gate for this translation, even though I will admit that my third-party partner did recommend it, so some caution is adviced.

Translated lyrics

The world is changing.
I see how my heart breaks apart.
Time stands still.
So far away from you,
it was for ever,
but now you are missing here.
Time stands still.

1000 streets behind me.
There is no way back to you.

Gloria. Angels sing songs.
Gloria. My head is just with you,
Gloria. but you are not there anymore.
Over and over again,
Gloria. I can not forget you.
Gloria. A lost smile.
Gloria. The sky was within reach.

The wind sweeps over the sea.
Do you hear your voice so close to me?
The time, she stands.

1000 streets to go.
I know I will see you again.

Gloria. Angels sing songs.
Gloria. My head is just with you,
Gloria. but you are not there anymore.
Over and over again,
Gloria. I can not forget you.
Gloria. A lost smile.
Gloria. The sky was within reach.

I see you constantly in front of me
and I know it’s over.
I still carry your picture with me,
but the whole world is changing.

Gloria. Angels sing songs.
Gloria. My head is just with you
Gloria. but you are not there anymore.
Over and over again,
Gloria. I can not forget you.
Gloria. A lost smile.
Gloria. The sky was within reach.

Original lyrics

Die Welt verändert sich
Ich seh mein Herz, wie’s auseinander bricht
Die Zeit steht still
So weit entfernt von dir
Es war für immer, doch jetzt fehlst du hier
Die Zeit steht still

1000 Straßen hinter mir
Es führt kein Weg zurück zu dir

Gloria, Engel singen Lieder
Gloria, mein Kopf ist nur bei dir
Gloria, aber du bist nicht mehr da
Immer, immer wieder
Gloria, ich kann dich nicht vergessen
Gloria, ein verlorenes Lächeln
Gloria, der Himmel war zum Greifen nah

Der Wind streicht übers Meer
Hör deine Stimme noch so nah bei mir
Die Zeit, sie steht

1000 Straßen noch zu gehen
Ich weiß, ich werd dich wiedersehen

Gloria, Engel singen Lieder
Gloria, mein Kopf ist nur bei dir
Gloria, aber du bist nicht mehr da
Immer, immer wieder
Gloria, ich kann dich nicht vergessen
Gloria, ein verlorenes Lächeln
Gloria, der Himmel war zum Greifen nah

Ich seh dich ständig vor mir und ich weiß
Dass es vorüber ist
Ich trag dein Bild noch bei mir
Doch die ganze Welt verändert sich

Gloria, Engel singen Lieder
Gloria, mein Kopf ist nur bei dir
Gloria, aber du bist nicht mehr da
Immer, immer wieder
Gloria, ich kann dich nicht vergessen
Gloria, ein verlorenes Lächeln
Gloria, der Himmel war zum Greifen nah
