Wanneer koebaai totsiens is-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

revisiting an old song and managed to shorten it two minutes. It flows better but still doesn't want to sit in verses and chorus' but it does have a returning line: When goodbye is farewell/farewell is goodbye"

When goodbye is goodbye

Where are you now?
I sometimes wonder…
Where are you now?

Love is a fine line
Between sorry and I'm growing up now
Love is a fine line
Love is what I wanted for you.

Love is an ocean
and I float on the sea
Wonder if it overwhelmed me
That's all I can give
That's all I can give…

When goodbye is goodbye
And I know my life must go on now
Wonder if you still exist.

V2. When the wind went down
a storm comes
And the fierce winds blow
How can I understand my heart?
How can I understand my heart?

If love is goodbye
goodbye is goodbye
If love is goodbye
goodbye is goodbye

But every time
When I feel the wind go down
Then comes the crescent moon

If love is goodbye
goodbye says goodbye
When all is over
And I know life has to go on
Yes I know life has to go on

Bridge: Find me, Oh seek me
Not many people here
Actually, I'm alone.
I'm sorry about the storms
I'm sorry about the rain
In my life that's all, there is to it

And I know that life goes on
And I know life goes on

If goodbye is goodbye
If goodbye is goodbye
Will life go on
goodbye, mmm

Lyrics: 

Wanneer koebaai totsiens is

Waar is jy nou?
Ek wonder soms…
Waar is jy nou?

Liefde is ‘n fyn lyn
Tussen jammer en ek word nou groot
Liefde is ‘n fyn lyn
Liefde is wat ek vir jou wou hê.

Liefde is ‘n oseaan
en ek dobber op die see
Wonder of dit my oorweldig het
Dit is al wat ek kan gee
Dit is al wat ek kan gee…

Wanneer koebaai totsiens is
En ek weet my lewe moet nou aangaan
Wonder of jy nog bestaan.

V2. As die wind gaan lê het
kom daar ‘n storm op
En die woeste winde waai
Hoe kan ek tog my hart verstaan?
Hoe kan ek tog my hart verstaan?

As liefde koebaai is
Koebaai is totsiens
As liefde koebaai is
Koebaai is totsiens

Maar elke keer
As ek voel die wind gaan lê
Dan kom die sekelmaan

As liefde koebaai is
Koebaai sê totsiens
As alles dan verby is
En ek weet die lewe moet aangaan
Ja ek weet die lewe moet aangaan

Brug: Vind my, O soek my
Hiers nie baie mense nie
Eintlik is ek alleen.
Ek’s jammer oor die storms
Eks jammer oor die reen
In my lewe is dit al wat bestaan

En ek weet dat die lewe aangaan
En ek weet dat die lewe aangaan

As koebaai totsiens is
As koebaai totsiens is
Sal die lewe aangaan
Koebaai, mmm

This is so nice to listen too. The piano and vocals sit together so well. I listened before reading so I’m glad you put an English translation. Beautiful.
