this world is a loud place,
das mag ich eigentlich | (G: I like that actually)
but this world has a soft face,
merk’ ich, wenn ich dich seh’ | (G: I notice this, when I see you)

and this world is a big house,
du kommst erstmal gar nicht raus | (G: you can’t just get out)

this world is a nice place to be..

this world has a sad song
hör’ ich mir gerne an | (G: I like to listen to that)
of everything gone wrong,
und was noch werden kann | (G: and what still might be)

and this world is a big house,
du kommst erstmal gar nicht raus | (G: you can’t just get out)

this world is a hard place to be…

on n’est que des temoins içi | (F: we’re just witnesses here
das ist mir auch ganz recht | (G: and that’s just fine with me)
como un pàjaro | (S: like a bird)
I’ll rise above this mess, I’ll rise above this mess..

and this world is a big house,
du kommst erstmal gar nicht raus | (G: you can’t just get out)

this world is a good place to be..

we are only witnesses here
and that’s alright with me
comme un oiseau dans l’air | (F: like a bird in the air)
I’ll see what I can see,
I’ll see what I can see…

and this world is a big house,
du kommst erstmal gar nicht raus | (G: you can’t just get out)

this world is a sweet place to be,
this world is the right place to be…
