Hi!!!!!!

Last night, my vampire genes kicked in (yeah- they do that from time to time and steal my sleep away) and while I was lying in bed, I tried to fall asleep by hearing music.
At 3 a.m. I had a real enlightenment:
There is this one song called “Das Beste” (= The Best) of a german band named Silbermond (I don’t think that you have heard of them) and I noticed while listening to it, how well it fits into Twilight. I tried to translate it...
Imagine a typical night during the first books: Bella is lying in bed, next to her Edward.

I’ve found a treasure
That bears your name
so beautiful and precious
no money of the world can pay it.
You fall asleep next to me-
want to regard you during the whole night.
See you sleeping, hear you breathing,
Until we wake up the next morning.

Again- you took my breathe away,
With you lying next to me
I can hardly believe
that someone like me deserves something as beautiful as you.


You are the best that ever happened to me
The way you love me does so good.
I forget the rest of the world
Whenever you are with me.
You are the best that ever happened to me
The way you love me does so good.
I’m saying it quite infrequently:
thank you for being here.

Your smile is addicting
like it’s not a part of this earth.
Would being near you be poisenous,
I would stick arount until I die.
Your leaving would destroy worlds
But I won’t think about it now.
Much to nice it is with you
while we are giving our love to each other.

Refuel me with energy,
Take the doubt away from my eyes,
Tell me 1000 lies,
I would believe everyone from you.
But one doubt will remain:
That I deserve someone like you.

You are the best that ever happened to me
The way you love me does so good.
I forget the rest of the world
Whenever you are with me.
You are the best that ever happened to me
The way you love me does so good.
I’m saying it quite infrequently:
thank you for being here.

Whenever my live is flipping over:
you are the calmness and my shelter.
Cause everything you are giving
does so endlessly good to me.
Whenever I am unresting
you are the journey without end.
Cause of that I’m placing my little big world
Into your guarding hands.

You are the best that ever happened to me
The way you love me does so good.
I forget the rest of the world
Whenever you are with me.

I’m saying it quite infrequently:
thank you for being here.

(Sorry, I’m sure there are some mistakes... I tried to get everything right, but I suck at translations...)

You can listen to the song on youtube: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=43bkoVF5pX4
It’s like Bella and Edward taking the song in turns. I’m still fascinated of some parts, like the poisenous closeness. I still can't believe that I listened to that song very often without noticing this parts...

What do you think?

quite good. i love all the music ideas for the next movies, it would be fantastic if someone with power to make those decisions was paying attention.
