About Irgendwie, Irgendwo, Irgendwann

"Irgendwie, irgendwo, irgendwann" is a 1984 love song by Nena which was a commercial success in Europe. Released initially as single, it's been also included on Nena's 1985 album Feuer und Flamme. Due to the success, many cover versions of this song appeared, including samples as well as other languages. "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime" is an English-language variant of the song. In its various incarnations it has been Nena's second most successful song of all-time behind only "99 Luftballons". Both songs were written by Nena band members Jörn-Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen and Carlo Karges and between them have had in the 21st century a near duopoly of being the final rock song that Nena plays at the end of her live concerts.

Im Sturz durch Raum und Zeit
Richtung Unendlichkeit
Fliegen Motten in das Licht
Genau wie du und ich

Irgendwie fängt irgendwann
Irgendwo die Zukunft an
Ich warte nicht mehr lang
Liebe wird aus Mut gemacht
Denk nicht lange nach
Wir fahren auf Feuerrädern
Richtung Zukunft durch die Nacht

Gib mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Die Zeit ist reif für ein bisschen Zärtlichkeit
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

Im Sturz durch Zeit und Raum
Erwacht aus einem Traum
Nur ein kurzer Augenblick
Dann kehrt die Nacht zurück

Irgendwie fängt irgendwann
Irgendwo die Zukunft an
Ich warte nicht mehr lang
Liebe wird aus Mut gemacht
Denk nicht lange nach
Wir fahren auf Feuerrädern
Richtung Zukunft durch die Nacht

Gib mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Die Zeit ist reif für ein bisschen Zärtlichkeit
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

Gib mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Die Zeit ist reif für ein bisschen Zärtlichkeit
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

Gib mir die Hand
Ich bau dir ein Schloss aus Sand
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Die Zeit ist reif für ein bisschen Zärtlichkeit
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann

Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
Irgendwie irgendwo irgendwann
