Afscheid
Glennis Grace Lyrics


Altijd bij elkaar, m'n armen om je heen
M'n allergrootste liefde, dat wist ik echt meteen
De allerlaatste weken, de dagen gingen snel
Dichtbij komt het afscheid, moeilijk wordt het wel

Zeg dat je niet hoeft te gaan schat
Dat je aan mij echt genoeg had
Zeg dat je niet hoeft te gaan schat
Ga schat, want je moet, ik weet je moet
Als het even kon dan bleef ik nog een nacht bij jou
Als het even kon dan bleef ik nog een nacht bij jou

Dan zou ik zeggen, dat ik op je wacht
En dat de toekomst naar ons lacht
Dan zou ik zeggen voor de zoveelste keer
Ik wil geen ander nooit meer

De koffers staan al buiten, de achterklep slaat dicht
Een laatste lange kus, in het vroege ochtendlicht
Je kijkt me liefjes aan en pakt me stevig beet
Ik fluister in je oor, dat ik je niet vergeet

Zeg dat je niet hoeft te gaan schat
Dat je aan mij echt genoeg had
Zeg dat je niet hoeft te gaan schat
Ga schat want, je moet, ik weet je moet
Als het even kon dan bleef ik nog een nacht bij jou
Als het even kon dan bleef ik nog een nacht bij jou

Dan zou ik zeggen, dat ik op je wacht
En dat de toekomst naar ons lacht
Dan zou ik zeggen voor de zoveelste keer
Ik wil geen ander nooit meer

Nooit meer zal ik voelen, wat ik voel voor jou
Nooit meer zal ik voelen, wat ik voel voor jou
Dus ga nu maar, droog je tranen af
En onthoud heel goed, dat ik van je hou, van je hou
Nee, nee, nee, je hoeft niet te gaan schat
Nee ooh, nee, nee, nee, nee, je hoeft niet te gaan schat, nee, nee

In 1998 the Dutch band Volumia scored with "Afscheid", a number 4 hit in the Dutch charts. The song is written by Xander de Buisonjé leadsinger of the band. (the black haired guy at 0.45 secs in this video)He wrote this because his former girlfriend had to leave for a hotel internship, and Xander would rather not have her to leave. Then in 2011 Glennis Grace performed the song in the Dutch music show "De Beste Zangers van Nederland" (Best Dutch Singers), Glennis' rendition of the song was received so well that it became her first number One hit in the Dutch charts. The song (in short) is about a lover having to leave because he/she is getting a chance of a lifetime elsewhere, and the singer (in this case Glennis), doesn't want to stand in their way. Here's a translation of the lyrics in English for those who don't understand/speak Dutch;

Afscheid (Goodbye/Farewell)

Always together, my arms around you
My greatest love, I knew it straight away
The past few weeks, the days went really fast
The end is coming near, hard it will be

Say that you don't have to go babe
that you are happy with just me
Say that you don't have to go babe
Go babe, because you have to, I know you have to

If it was possible, I would stay one more night with you
If it was possible, I would stay one more night with you
Then I would say, that I will wait for you and that the future smiles at us
and then I would say for thousanth time
I will never want someone else

The luggage is outside, the trunk slams shut
A long last kiss in the early morning light
You look at me sweetly and hold me tight
I whisper in your ear, that I won't forget you

Say that you don't have to go babe
that you are happy with just me
Say that you don't have to go babe
Go babe, because you have to, I know you have to

If I could, I would stay one more night with you
If I could, I would stay one more night with you
Then I would say, that I will wait for you and that the future smiles at us
and then I would say for thousandth time
I will never want someone else

Never will I feel,
what I feel for you
I hope that I can live without you
Go now, wipe you're tears away
and always remember , that I love you, Love you

No, No, No
You don't have to go babe
No
No, no, no
You don't have to go babe,
No



Roos Vermeer

English translation:

Always together, my arms around you
My greatest love, I really knew that right away
The very last week, the days went fast
Close comes goodbye, it is difficult

Say you don't have to go, baby
That for you I am enough
Say you don't have to go, baby
Go baby, because you have to, I know you have to

If it only could
I would stay another night with you
If it only could
I would stay another night with you

Then I would say, I will be waiting for you
And that future laughs at us
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I don't want another, no never

The bags are outside already out, the rear trunk lid closes
One last long kiss in the early morning light
You look at me sweetly and grab me tightly
I whisper in your ear, I won't forget you

Say you don't have to go, baby
That for you I am enough
Say you don't have to go, baby
Go baby, because you have to, I know you have to

If it only could
I would stay another night with you
If it only could
I would stay another night with you

Then I would say, I will be waiting for you
And that future laughs at us
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I don't want another, no never

Never again will I feel what I feel for you
Never again will I feel what I feel for you
So go now, and wipe your tears away
And remember very well that I love you, love you

No, no, no, you don't have to go baby, no
Ooh, no, no, no, you don't have to go baby, no , no

Translation - babe, darling, personal preference

Always together, my arms around you
my greatest love of all, I knew it instantly
The very last week, the days were passing fast
Farewell is coming closer, it will be difficult

Tell me you don't have to go, babe /darling/dear
That I am more than enough for you
Tell me you don't have to go babe, go babe
Because you must
I know, you must

If it were possible I would stay one more night with you
If it were possible I would stay one more night with you
Then I would say I'll be waiting for you
That our future looks so bright
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I don't want another, never again

The suitcases are outside, the trunk slams shut
A last long kiss, in the early morning light
You look at me so sweetly and grasp me tight
I whisper in your ears, I won't forget you

Tell me you don't have to go, babe
That I am more than enough for you
Tell me you don't have to go babe, go babe
Because you must
I know, you must

If it were possible I would stay one more night with you
If it were possible I would stay one more night with you
Then I would say I'll be waiting for you
That our future looks so bright
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I don't want another, never again
Never again will I feel what I feel for you
Never again will I feel what I feel for you
So go now please, dry your tears
And remember that I love you
Love you..

No, No, No....
You don't have to go babe!
No!
Ooooh!
Noo o o, noo o o, noo o o
You don't have to go babe!
No!
No!

Lyrics in English:

Always together, my arms around you
My greatest love, I knew it right away
The last weeks, the days went by fast
Saying goodbye comes closer, that sure is going to be difficult
Tell me you don't have to leave, babe
That I was enough for you
Tell me you don't have to leave babe
Leave baby, because you have to, I know you have to.

If it was slightly possible, then
I would stay another night with you
If it was slightly possible, then
I stayed another night with you
I would say that I'm waiting for you
And that the future smiles at us
I would say it yet again:
I don't want another, never again.

The suitcases are already outside, the cardoor slams shut
A long last kiss in the early morning light
You look at me sweetly and grab me tightly
I whisper in your ear that I wont forget you
Tell me you don't have to leave, babe
That I was enough for you
Tell me you don't have to leave babe
Leave baby, because you have to, I know you have to.

If it was slightly possible, then
I would stay another night with you
If it was slightly possible, then
I stayed another night with you
I would say that I'm waiting for you
And that the future smiles at us
I would say it yet again:
I don't want another, never again!

I will never feel, what I feel for you!
I will never feel, what I feel for you!
So come, just go, wipe your tears away
And remember very well that I love you, that I love you
No, no, no! You don't have to leave baby, no.
Ooh, no, no, no, you do not have to leave baby! No, no.

translation of the songtext:
Always together, my arms around you
My greatest love, I knew that immediately
The last weeks, the days went fast
Close by is the farewell, it is difficult

Say you do not have to go treasure
That you really had enough for me
Say you do not have to go treasure
Go dear, because you have to, I know you have to

If possible, then
I stayed with you for another night
If possible, then
I stayed with you for another night

Then I would say that I am waiting for you
And that the future smiles at us
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I never want another person

The suitcases are already outside, the tailgate closes
A last long kiss, in the early morning light
You look at me sweetly and grasp me firmly
I whisper in your ear that I will not forget you

Say you do not have to go treasure
That you really had enough for me
Say you do not have to go treasure
Go dear, because you have to, I know you have to

If possible, then
I stayed with you for another night
If possible, then
I stayed with you for another night

Then I would say that I am waiting for you
And that the future smiles at us
Then I would say for the umpteenth time
I never want another person

Never again will I feel what I feel for you
Never again will I feel what I feel for you
So go now, wipe your tears
And remember very well that I love you, love you

No, no, no, you do not have to go treasure, no
Ooh, no, no, no, you do not have to go treasure, no, no

You don't even need to understand the language to recognize how great her voice is. Her range is ridiculous! I've been watching her on "America's Got Talent." She is in the finals now and the finale is next week. I want to hear everything she sings, which is what brought me here.

GRAND LOOP

@Sundertje black pete isn't blackface, there's no mockery. Also what racism? Everyone is welcome and foreigners get on the first place, before the Dutch people themselves. Most international country in the world

hoi hoi

She got in jail asulting people her carriere is over.

Mensen kunnen zeuren over haar wat ze willen.....maar blijft een vd beste zangeressen die Nederland heeft gehad wellicht de beste

Stefan

Zeker weten! Wat ze hier doet is gewoon steengoed. Ik heb weleens van die avonden (meestal nachten) dat ik allerlei ballads zit te luisteren. (Ook veel van de beste zangers) maar uiteindelijk sluit ik altijd met dit nummer af. En dat zegt genoeg

Aline Rocha

I'm Brazilian and I don't understand her language, it's not necessary to understand her language to speak to admit that she is very professional, her voice is perfectly beautiful! I love you Glennis, the world needs to know you. 😍😍❤️❤️🇧🇷
