Dutch song Herman van Veen - Liefde van later
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

If love can last for years on ending
Then sure it has to be real love
Despite the many chilly hours
The dumb mistakes and all the pain
This very room enclosing us
Where our bed stood all those years
Has traces of a long lost fierceness
That strong wild passion now seems gone
That tender rage has perished now
The weapons that we used to fight with

Als liefde zoveel jaar kan duren
Dan moet het echt wel liefde zijn
Ondanks de vele kille uren
De domme fouten en de pijn
Heel deze kamer om ons heen
Waar ons bed steeds heeft gestaan
Draagt sporen van een fel verleden
Die wilde hartstocht lijkt nu heen
Die zoete razernij vergaan
De wapens waar we toen mee streden

I love you so
With whole my heart and soul I love you so
Past sun and moon
Up to the morning blue
I still do love you so

Ik hou van jou
Met heel mijn hart en ziel hou ik van jou
Langs zon en maan
Tot aan het ochtendblauw
Ik hou nog steeds van jou

By now you know all my shrewd trickeries
I know for years your witchcraft game
And I no longer plead and beg you
You know my weak points by this time
I did leave you alone too long
Perhaps the choice you made was wrong
But I had also a few girl friends
We both were young, not made of stone
Although in the end we understood
At last you always can start over

Jij kent nu al mijn slimme streken
Ik ken allang jouw heksenspel
Ik hoef niet meer om jou te smeken
Jij kent mijn zwakke plaatsen wel
Soms liet ik jou te lang alleen
Misschien was wat je deed verkeerd
Maar ik had ook wel eens vriendinnen
We waren jong en niet van steen
En zo hebben we dan toch geleerd
Je kunt altijd opnieuw beginnen

I love you so
With whole my heart and soul I love you so
Past sun and moon
Up to the morning blue
I still do love you so

Ik hou van jou
Met heel mijn hart en ziel hou ik van jou
Langs zon en maan
Tot aan het ochtendblauw
Ik hou nog steeds van jou

We fought for years against each other
And with each other too, at times
But living quiet, content and peaceful
Is really dangerous for love
You don't cry quickly anymore
I keep my temper in control
We keep our angry words inside now
But even though we learned the game
One thing will always still remain
Sweet love with all it's pleasant battles

We hebben zoveel jaren gestreden
Tegen elkaar en met elkaar
Maar rustig leven en tevreden
Is voor de liefde een gevaar
Jij huilt allang niet meer zo snel
Ik laat me niet zo vlug meer gaan
We houden onze woorden binnen
Maar al beheersen we het spel
Eén ding blijft toch altijd bestaan
De zoete oorlog van het minnen


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

I love you so
With whole my heart and soul I love you so
Past sun and moon
Up to the morning blue
I still do love you so
Forever you

Ik hou van jou
Met heel mijn hart en ziel hou ik van jou
Langs zon en maan
Tot aan het ochtendblauw
Ik hou nog steeds van jou
Voorgoed van jou

The song 'Long lasting love'/'Liefde van later' (1969, in French: 'Les vieux amants') was written by the famous Belgium singer Jacques Brel (1929-1978). The song is still voted every year into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted on the radio in the last week of the year).

Some of Jacques Brel's greatest hits were: 'Ne me quitte pas'/'If you go away' (1959); 'Marieke' (1961); 'Le Plat Pays'/'My flat low land' (1962); Bruxelles/'Brussels' (1963); 'Amsterdam' (1964); and 'Voir un ami pleurer'/'To see a friend cry' (1977).
