Toe stop my hart
Lianie May Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

J: Hei...
L: Ek het nie gedink jy gaan kom nie.
J: Ek het mos gesê ek sal altyd daar wees. By wie't jy gehoor ek's uit?
L: Jou ma. Ek het haar by Checkers gekry. Sy't gesê hulle't jou vrygelaat.
J: Ja. Dankie vir die werk.
L: Dankie vir jou. Die perde het iemand nodig wat weet wat hy doen. Ek hoop nie jy gee om nie maar
ek het vir jou ‘n bed in die skuur gemaak.
J: Nee geen probleem nie. Ek moet in elk geval vanaand die perde gaan harnas.
L: Goed dan sien ek jou môre-oggend.
J: Ek het jou gemis.
L: Ek ook. Maar liefde is nie altyd genoeg nie.
J: Ek weet ek het foute gemaak. Mens kan mos nie alles net so weggooi nie.
L: Hierdie gaan nie werk nie.
J: Ek's jammer. Ek sal net met die perde klaarmaak, dan sal ek gaan.

Vers 1
L: Ek het gedroom van ‘n plek
waar die son nooit gaan set.
Jy was daar in ‘n tronk
en ek moes jou kom red,
my babie, met als wat ek het, my babie.

J: En ek mis jou vanaand
in hierdie hel van ‘n plek,
mis jou te veel om te sê.
Ek voel ‘n mes teen my nek
en my asem raak min, my babie.
Ek vra jou maak gou, my babie.

Refrein: Toe stop my hart.
Toe stop my hart by jou.
Ek het ver geloop vir jou.
Ek het lief geword vir jou
en in my hart is daar ‘n plek gehou.
Ek sal vir jou alles gee.
Ek sal jou trane wegvee.
Dit alles vir jou.

Vers 2
J: Daar was te veel om te sê,
te veel wat jy nie wil weet.
Maar spyt kom altyd te laat.
Ek sou jou nooit kon vergeet.
As ek alles kon terugdraai, babie,
sou ek my wou terugwaai, babie,

L: tot hier by my, soos dit was,
waar ons ‘n lewe kon bou,
waar ek jou styf vas kon hou.
Maar dis nou flenters en rou.
Op jou sal ek nooit kan opgee, babie.
Dit belowe ek jou, my babie.

Refrein

Brug: Want elke tree saam met jou, my babie,
los ons al die seer agter ons, babie.

Your mother. I found her at Checkers. She said they released you.

Yes. Thank you for the job.


Dankie vir jou. Die perde het iemand nodig wat weet wat hy doen. Ek hoop nie jy gee om nie maar ek het vir jou ‘n bed in die skuur gemaak.
Thank you for you. The horses need someone who knows what he's doing. I hope you don't mind, but I made you a bed in the barn.


Nee geen probleem nie. Ek moet in elk geval vanaand die perde gaan harnas.
No problem. I have to harness the horses tonight anyway.


Goed dan sien ek jou môre-oggend.
Alright, see you tomorrow morning.


Ek het jou gemis.
I missed you.


Ek ook. Maar liefde is nie altyd genoeg nie.
Me too. But love isn't always enough.


Ek weet ek het foute gemaak. Mens kan mos nie alles net so weggooi nie.
I know I made mistakes. You can't just throw everything away.


Hierdie gaan nie werk nie.
This isn't going to work.


Ek's jammer. Ek sal net met die perde klaarmaak, dan sal ek gaan.
I'm sorry. I'll just finish up with the horses, then I'll go.


Ek het gedroom van ‘n plek waar die son nooit gaan set. Jy was daar in ‘n tronk en ek moes jou kom red, my babie, met als wat ek het, my babie.
I dreamt of a place where the sun never sets. You were there in a prison and I had to come save you, my baby, with everything I had, my baby.


En ek mis jou vanaand in hierdie hel van ‘n plek, mis jou te veel om te sê. Ek voel ‘n mes teen my nek en my asem raak min, my babie. Ek vra jou maak gou, my babie.
And I miss you tonight in this hellish place. I miss you too much to say. I feel a knife against my neck and my breath is running out, my baby. I ask you to hurry, my baby.


Toe stop my hart. Toe stop my hart by jou. Ek het ver geloop vir jou. Ek het lief geword vir jou en in my hart is daar ‘n plek gehou. Ek sal vir jou alles gee. Ek sal jou trane wegvee. Dit alles vir jou.
Stop my heart. Stop my heart with you. I walked far for you. I became loving towards you and held a place for you in my heart. I'll give you everything. I'll wipe away your tears. All of this for you.


Daar was te veel om te sê, te veel wat jy nie wil weet. Maar spyt kom altyd te laat. Ek sou jou nooit kon vergeet. As ek alles kon terugdraai, babie, sou ek my wou terugwaai, babie,
There was too much to say, too much you didn't want to know. But regret always comes too late. I could never forget you. If I could rewind everything, baby, I would want to go back to you.


tot hier by my, soos dit was, waar ons ‘n lewe kon bou, waar ek jou styf vas kon hou. Maar dis nou flenters en rou. Op jou sal ek nooit kan opgee, babie. Dit belowe ek jou, my babie.
To here by me, as it was, where we could build a life, where I could hold you tightly. But now it's broken and raw. On you, I'll never give up, baby. That's a promise, my baby.


Want elke tree saam met jou, my babie, los ons al die seer agter ons, babie.
Because every step with you, my baby, leaves all the pain behind us, baby.

Baie mooi liedjie! Ek`t grootgeword in daardie deel van Suid-Afrika, dis baie mooi in die somer maar koud en dor in die winter. Afrikaans bly maar `n mooi taal, al moet ek dit self se!!
