The second song of mine with this name; they have the same theme but a different approach. At some point you realize that you have to leave and then you're not so sure where you really belong.


The time is drawing near
When I will have to leave
Away from this land again
Back in the old homeland

And when I set foot back there
Will it feel like home?
Will it feel alright?
Or will I turn right back around?

This has become my second home
It's hard to lead a double life
To tread two paths at the same time
How do you choose which one to take?

I can't answer in a word
I can't put it in a box
It's not as easy as it seems
To reconcile these thoughts

The more that you see
The farther you go
The more that you learn
The more there is still to find

My time is up, the dream is done
(Die Zeit ist um, mein Traum ist aus)
Schon zu Ende, ich muss weg

Translation of last line:

Already over, I have to leave
