  • Michael from Aurora, CoThe english translation of the lyrics are:

    One love, one promise
    Said I would come back to you
    Well, I must sadly break it
    His bullet is stuck in me
    One love, two guns
    One points into my face
    He says I stole you
    He doesn't know
    That you love me

    Red sand and two rounds
    One dies in a kiss of gunpowder
    The second shall not spare its target
    Now is stuck deeply in my chest

    One love, one promise
    Oh the blood runs from the mouth
    And no one will avenge me
    Senselessly I perish
    One love, two guns
    One could draw faster
    Well, it was not me
    Now you belong to him

    Red sand and two rounds
    One dies in a kiss of gunpowder
    The second which didn't spare its target
    Now is stuck deeply in my chest

    Red sand and doves*
    Refresh themselves on my blood
    At the end there is but an end
    I am good for something finally

    Red sand and two rounds
    One dies in a kiss of gunpowder
    The second which didn't spare its target
    Now is stuck deeply in my chest
