"Applaus, Applaus" by Sportfreunde Stiller

There is a song on the radio here in Central Europe that is getting a lot of play that I really like. I try not to hear it too often less I get sick of it and cease to enjoy the way I am seeing its message. It is probably intended and being seen as just another love song, but I see it as really communicating a great aspect of love. Personally I like to think of it in particular as speaking to one of the ways that I love my children.

Loosely translated it goes something like this:

If my hand is a fist, you open it up and place yours in mine.
You whisper sentences of caution into all the noise,
as though you were my sextant and compass.

Applause, Applause, for your words
My heart opens up, when you laugh.
Applause, Applause, for the way you inspire me.
Never stop. My greatest desire, is that you never stop.

When my world is flat, you make it round again.
You show me in gentle ways what wisdom is.
When I want to put my head through the wall,
You place a helmet and hammer in my hand. 
The video is a bit of silly fun too.
