Rug teen die muur
Jay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ek is moeg gesoek
Ek is vlou geloop
Ek is middel deur
Maar jy gee my 'n bietjie hoop

Ek het lank gewag
Ek het als probeer
Ek het als verloor
Maar soveel ook geleer

Met my rug teen die muur
Lê my hart waar ek wag vir jou
Met my rug teen die muur
Is ek dalk nou eers reg vir jou
Na die val en die seer
Elke keer
Weet ek dit wat verby is
Was nodig gewees
Want ek's hier
Met my rug teen die muur

Ek was heen en weer
Ek was vas gekeer
Ek was seer gedra
Maar jy was daar, toe ek jou vra
Om my heel te maak
Om my hand te vat
En die pad wat ons begin
Net klaar te maak

Met my rug teen die muur
Lê my hart waar ek wag vir jou
Met my rug teen die muur
Is ek dalk nou eers reg vir jou
Na die val en die seer
Elke keer
Weet ek dit wat verby is
Was nodig gewees
Want ek's hier
Met my rug teen die muur

Elke hart
Soek 'n hart
Wat hom raak
En weer wakker maak
Want dis nooit
Nooit te laat

Met my rug teen die muur
Lê my hart waar ek wag vir jou
Met my rug teen die muur
Is ek dalk nou eers reg vir jou
Na die val en die seer
Elke keer
Weet ek dit wat verby is
Was nodig gewees
Want ek's hier




Met my rug teen die muur
Met my rug teen die muur

Ek is moeg gesoek
I am tired of searching


Ek is vlou geloop
I have walked aimlessly


Ek is middel deur
I am in the middle of nowhere


Maar jy gee my 'n bietjie hoop
But you give me a little hope


Ek het lank gewag
I have waited long


Ek het als probeer
I have tried everything


Ek het als verloor
I have lost everything


Maar soveel ook geleer
But I have also learned so much


Met my rug teen die muur
With my back against the wall


Lê my hart waar ek wag vir jou
My heart lies where I wait for you


Is ek dalk nou eers reg vir jou
Maybe now I am ready for you


Na die val en die seer
After the fall and the pain


Elke keer
Every time


Weet ek dit wat verby is
I know what is over


Was nodig gewees
Was necessary


Want ek's hier
Because I am here


Ek was heen en weer
I was back and forth


Ek was vas gekeer
I was stuck


Ek was seer gedra
I was carrying pain


Maar jy was daar, toe ek jou vra
But you were there, when I asked you


Om my heel te maak
To make me whole


Om my hand te vat
To take my hand


En die pad wat ons begin
And the path we started on


Net klaar te maak
To finish it together


Elke hart
Every heart


Soek 'n hart
Seeks a heart


Wat hom raak
That touches it


En weer wakker maak
And wakes it up again


Want dis nooit
Because it's never


Nooit te laat
Never too late
