[English]

The other day I argued with my love
The other day I argued with my husband
And now ...

His hands no longer touch my neck
His hands no longer touch my waist
His hands no longer stroke my hair
He no longer looks me in the eye
And my heart aches

Chorus:
I love him so! I love my darling so much!
I love him so!
I will always follow my love

His hands no longer touch my neck
His hands no longer touch my waist
His hands no longer touch my breasts
His hands no longer caress my head
And my heart aches

Chorus x 2

His hands no longer caress my breasts
His hands no longer touch my waist
His hands no longer caress my hair
His hands no longer touch my neck
His hands no longer touch mine ...
