I was kind of your sister all the time 
we needed no words to communicate 
you were kind of my brother all the time 
we knew we would never separate 
and when there were hard times we helped, 
consulted and consoled each other 
and even if we didn't meet for a while 
when we came together again 
we understood at once what the other meant 

and it's a lie that I don't need 
your company anymore 
but I will not bleed, 
even though it hurts 
and I mustn't weep, 
or try to hold you back 
it's your decision, 
if you really want to go 
get away right now 
if I could decide which heart to love 
I swear; it would be yours 

This time you're here to tell me 
you're in love- that's nothing new 
I could consult you, like I always did before 
but this time it's something else: 
it hurts you to stay with me, and I don't want to lose 
nor do I want you to love me, because I don't love you 
like that 
and if it hurts you, you're right to go 
it hurts me too, but you don't have to know
