Nichts ist gekommen, nichts wird kommen für meine Seele.

Nothing comes, nothing will ever come for my Soul
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Nothing comes, nothing will ever come for my Soul.
I have waited, waited, oh waited !
The days are creeping past, they flutter away.
My ashblond silken hair blows pointlessly over my sallow face.
