Karel Gott - Tausend Fenster (English translation)

English translation

A Thousand Windows

The town is already dressed for the night
It's a sea of light in the darkness
A great loneliness invades every house around that time of the day
It feels like we're living on small islands
 
You don't even know who's living next to you
All of you don't know each other
In that very world of noise and light
 
Thousands of windows in this town are brightly lit
And you keep asking yourself: "Who's behind them?"
Thousands of windows tell you quietly: "Someone's still living here"
"Someone just like you, just as lonely and alone"
 
Couldn't that person over there be the one
You've been dreaming of for years?
The one who might be your home?
But there's a sea of houses between you and him
 
Tomorrow, your heart will still be just as empty
You'll still be eagerly hoping
Not to be so alone
In this grey world made of steel and stones
 
Thousands of windows in this town are brightly lit
And you keep asking yourself: "Who's behind them?"
Thousands of windows tell you quietly: "Someone's still living here"
"Someone just like you, just as lonely and alone"
