About this song
Folksong (rough translation of Swiss German lyrics) Say is it true? Say is it true I won't see you no more Say is it true what I hear them saying It feels as if there's no more love That's how I feel when I hear you They say it can't be that bad everything will just turn out fine forget about the past and keep your feet on the ground That's how I've come to doubt and lost my faith But if I lose you there's nothing left for me Tell me why I'll never understand Tell me why you had to go Tell me why love is like that Tell me why if you're the one who knows Time flies and I start to forget Keep my eyes open and take whatever I need But sometimes at night when I'm lying awake there's nothing I can do And I'm thinking of the times when I had you by my side
Are there many reasons to envy our American fellows? Don't know, let me think... Yes there is one thing: All the great folk songs this nation has brought forward. Songs that are passed from one generation to another. To be honest, I don't think this Swiss song will become a real folk song. It's just a nice idea. And so are the guitars of Pascal Biedermann on this recording.
