Santiano - Doch ich weiß es (English translation)

English translation

But I know it

I could do
As if there were no evil spirits spying us in the night
I could do
As if the Lord weren't my master, I could see myself with no sky
I could trust you all
As if I knew nothing of your plans, nothing of your fury and greed
I could do
As if there were neither glow nor tears and no more pain
I could believe, one morning, if I didn't know better
I could sleep with no cares, if I didn't know it
 
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no evil, no expiation, no torture
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no end
But I know it!
I know it now!
 
I could do
As if your mouth, which had sworn eternal fidelity to me, had never lied to me
I could do
As if no one had never betrayed me, as if it had never happened
I could do
As if love were eternal for me, just as joyful as a child
I could do
As if there were no devil and no death, as if I were deaf and blind
I could stay silent and forgive if I didn't know better
I could live in peace if I didn't know it
 
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no evil, no expiation, no torture
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no end
But I know it!
I know it now!
 
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
But I know it!
I know it now!
 
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no evil, no expiation, no torture
But I know it!
I know it now!
I could do as if there were no end
But I know it!
I know it now!
 
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
Hey, Hey (Hey, Hey)
But I know it!
I know it now!
