Everything's Right

For Natalie

We were fighting again last night
And we never knew why
Since then I can't see the light
Too grey is my sky

No I do not think we'll part
I believe that this love is too strong
And I never could break your heart
But I wonder how this thing will go on

If trouble belonged to love
I still chose to marry them both
But as yet I am dreaming of
Having the loving alone

"Everything's right"
"Everything's right"
How I wish it could be
"Everything's well"
"I will make you believe"
A little trouble on the way
Would never kill our love
But can love make our problems disappear?
Let's talk it though tonight
Is everything right?

We were fighing again last night
And I fear we're getting used to it all
I don't mean to suggest I'm right
But I did not cause this damage alone

We play a high risk these days
Less of poker than of Russian roulette
Now luckily once again
We're playing girl and boyfriend instead

But isn't it all a disguise
For the hatred lying so deep inside?
Or why don't you meet my eyes
When I ask you, "is everything right?"

"Everything's right"
"Everything's right"
How I wish it could be
"Everything's well"
"I will make you believe"
A little trouble on the way
Would never kill our love
But can love make our problems disappear?
Let's talk it though tonight
Is everything right?

Probably 1991. The original music's from a German song, and this lyric is sort of a very free translation of the German one. I'm still not telling which one, because with a different melody I think I might be able to get away with it. :-)
