“I was born to be with you”

 

 

 

I listen to music on You Tube every day. But I’m not that overwhelmed of the playlists YouTube try to tempt me with. But now and then I get lucky, like when I got the suggestion of this guy who sings in Afrikaans. I didn’t know about him before or knew the language he sings in either. But as my habit, I googled the text. And I became thrilled because I immediately recognized the voice of a man I  knew – or in a way still know.  Anyway, I have now made a translation of the lyrics.


Juan Boucher – Gebore Om By Jou Te Wees 

I was born to be with you

 

Show me how I can love you,
Tell me how I can say it to you
Because there’s really no one else
there’s really no one like how you are,
like how you are. Do you still get that feeling?
If you know what I mean? How can
you be sure, you and I will stay like this
as we are, as we are?

I just want to be with you every hour,
feel you, touch you, be alone with you
Because I dream about it every day, I want it
That my heart will be right there with you
And you know I’m there if you’re looking for me
to change your cry into a smile
In my arms you will be safe
I was born to be with you

You speak softly, but I can hear it. You’ve bewitched my head
There’s far where you are not there and my body is not with yours
Will my heart be able to rest? I was born to be with you!

I just want to be with you every hour,
Feel you, touch you, be alone with you
Because I dream about it every day, I want it
That my heart will be right there with you
And you know I’m there if you’re looking for me
To change your cry into a smile
In my arms you will be safe
I was born to be with you

I was born to be with you, because I’ve dream every day I want it
I was born to be with you and you know I’m there if you’re looking for me
I was born to be with you, in my arms you will be safe
I was born to be with you

I just want to be with you every hour,
Feel you, touch you, be alone with you
Because I dream about it every day, I want it
That my heart will be right there with you
And you know I’m there if you’re looking for me
to change your cry into a smile
In my arms you will be safe

I was born to be with you
Every hour I just want to be with you
Feel you, touch you, be alone with you
Because I dream about every day, I want it
That my heart will be right there with you
And you know I’m there if you’re looking for me
To change your cry into a smile

Wys my hoe om jou lief te he,
Vertel my hoe om dit terug te se
Want daar is regtig niemand anders,
Regtig niemand anders soos wie jy is nie
Soos wie jy is nie, Kry jy ook nog daai gevoel
As jy verstaan wat ek bedoel,
Hoe kan jy dan seker wees, dat ek en jy net so sal bly
Soos wat ons is, Soos wat ons is

Elke uur wil ek net by jou wees
Aan jou voel, aan jou vat, alleen wees
Want ek droom elke dag ek wil dit he
Dat my hart net daar by jou sal le
En jy weet ek is daar as jy my soek
Om jou huil te verruil vir n glimlag
In my arms sal jy veilig wees
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees

Jy praat sag maar ek kan dit hoor, Jy weet jy het met my kop getoor
Daar is n verte waar jy nie is nie, En my lyf nie by joune is nie
Sal my hart kan rus, Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees

Elke uur wil ek net by jou wees
Aan jou voel, aan jou vat, alleen wees
Want ek droom elke dag ek wil dit he
Dat my hart net daar by jou sal le
En jy weet ek is daar as jy my soek
Om jou huil te verruil vir n glimlag
In my arms sal jy veilig wees
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees

Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees, Want ek droom elke dag ek wil dit he
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees, En jy weet ek is daar as jy my soek
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees, In my arms sal jy veilig wees
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees

Elke uur wil ek net by jou wees
Aan jou voel, aan jou vat, alleen wees
Want ek droom elke dag ek wil dit he
Dat my hart net daar by jou sal le
En jy weet ek is daar as jy my soek
Om jou huil te verruil vir n glimlag
In my arms sal jy veilig wees

Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees
Elke uur wil ek net by jou wees
Aan jou voel, aan jou vat, alleen wees
Want ek droom elke dag ek wil dit he
Dat my hart net daar by jou sal le
En jy weet ek is daar as jy my soek
Om jou huil te verruil vir n glimlag
In my arms sal jy veilig wees
Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees
In my arms sal jy veilig wees, Ek’s gebore om by jou te wees
