Oonagh – Das Mädchen und der Tod

60

English translation of lyrics:

In a land far away, there once lived
a sickly girl named Madleen.
As weak as her heart beat was,
So rich was she in optimism.

One night on the front door
A stranger was knocking, the house was almost empty
He comes by her sickbed
His face hidden in the shadow

“Look at me, my child
As the day dawns
Your hardship will end
Look at me, my child
I relieve you”
That’s what Death said that night.

The voice of the stranger sounded sweet
She almost fell for its appeal
Until the moonlight breaks through the window
And shines into his face.

While death is frightened by the light,
Hastily she looks away
Keeping away from the stranger’s flattery
So his spell can not charm her.

“Look at me, my child
As the day dawns
Your hardship will end
Look at me, my child
I relieve you”
That’s what Death said that night

In a land far away, there once lived
a sickly girl named Madleen.
She lived long and happily (unafraid)
Until she invited the stranger.

“Look at me and go ahead, my friend
I lived here long (enough).
look at me and take me up, my friend”
And so the girl went with the Death.
