Dutch song Hero (Antonie Kamerling) - Toen ik je zag
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

No thoughts of tomorrow
Today was long enough
Until I saw you
All at once the daybreak came to mind

Ik dacht nooit aan morgen
Vandaag was lang genoeg
Totdat ik jou zag
En ik dacht ineens aan morgenvroeg

I didn't care for love much
No woman in my life
Until I saw you
And at once I loved you just like that

Ik hield niet van de liefde
Voor mij was er geen vrouw
Totdat ik jou zag
En ik hield zomaar ineens van jou

And you don't even notice
How you touch and impact me
There is no way of knowing
I recently met you one time
And I am not even sure
You saw me then

Je hebt niet in de gaten
Wat je allemaal met me doet
Dat kun je ook niet weten
Ik heb je pas één keer ontmoet
En toen heb je mij misschien
Niet eens gezien

I never went outdoors
Felt never so content
And now I'm even whistling
Watching out if I see you somewhere

Ik ging nooit naar buiten
Echt vrolijk was ik niet
Nu loop ik zelfs te fluiten
En ik kijk of ik jou ergens zie

I seldom laughed with someone
I felt incapable
Now I'm a sun all day and night
Because I know that you exist

Ik kon om niemand lachen
'k Was tot niets in staat
Nu ben ik dag en nacht een zon
Omdat ik weet dat jij bestaat

And you don't even notice
How you touch and impact me
There is no way of knowing
I recently met you one time
And I am not even sure
You saw me then

Je hebt niet in de gaten
Wat je allemaal met me doet
Dat kun je ook niet weten
Ik heb je pas één keer ontmoet
En toen heb je mij misschien
Niet eens gezien

If I asked you: can I
Offer you a drink
Would you just giggle
And then that is that
I feel I have to try it
I merely don't know how
Away with the shyness
I want, I will, I go
To see you

Als ik jou zou vragen
Drink jij wat van mij
Zou je dan lachen
Blijft het daarbij
Ik moet het toch proberen
Ik weet alleen niet hoe
Niet langer verlegen
Ik wil, ik zal, ik ga
Naar je toe


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

There was a thunder, a lightning
A blow when I saw you
I am a changed man, another
Since I saw your smile
I will surrender, you have me
No point now to resist
I am a changed man, another
And this only is the start

Er was een donder, een bliksem
Een slag toen ik je zag
Ik ben veranderd, een ander
Sinds die ene lach
Ik geef me over, je hebt me
Verzetten heeft geen zin
Ik ben veranderd, een ander
En dit is pas het begin


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

Because you don't even notice
How you touch and impact me
There is no way of knowing
I recently met you one time
And I am not even sure
Not very sure
You saw me then

Want je hebt niet in de gaten
Wat je allemaal met me doet
Dat kun je ook niet weten
Ik heb je pas één keer ontmoet
En toen heb je mij misschien
Ja, heel misschien
Niet eens gezien
