Zeit was the German entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1997 in Dublin performed by Bianca Shomburg.

The song is a ballad with Shomburg expressing her regret at "time running through my fingers" and her desire for just a bit more time - with the implication in the lyrics being that this would save a relationship. Shomburg also recorded an English version of the song, entitled "Time".

The song was performed 11th following Spain and preceding Poland. At the close of voting, it finished in 18th place with 22 points.

Lyrics

Manchmal lief die Zeit mir durch die Hände
Manchmal wollt sie einfach nicht vergeh’n
Doch die Zeit heilt viele Wunden
Und in manchen schweren Stunden
Träumte ich die Zeit zurückzudrehen, denn

Zeit, Zeit, wo bleibt nur die Zeit?
Zeit, Zeit, wann ist es soweit?
Wer weiß, was noch passiert?
Wer weiß, wohin der Weg mich führt?
Sag, wo bist du?

Zeit, Zeit, was kommt in dieser Zeit
Noch auf mich zu?

Ich hab um ein bisschen Glück gebetet
Und um die verlor’ne Zeit geweint
Doch es konnt’ auf eine Frage
Mir keiner hier die Antwort sagen
Können wir in Frieden glücklich sein? Nein

Zeit, Zeit, wo bleibt nur die Zeit?
Zeit, Zeit, wann ist es soweit?
Wo werd’ ich morgen sein?
Bin ich am Ende doch allein?
Und wo bist du?

(Zeit, Zeit, wo bleibt nur die Zeit?)
Wie schnell die Zeit vergeht
(Zeit, Zeit, wann ist es soweit?)
Wie schnell der Wind sich dreht

Wer weiß, was noch passiert?
Wer weiß, wohin der Weg uns führt?
Sag, wo bist du?

Zeit, Zeit, ist der Weg auch weit
Ich brauch’ dazu
Nur ein wenig Zeit

Sometimes time ran through my fingers
And sometimes it just wouldn’t go by
But time heals many wounds
And often, in difficult moments
I wished that I could turn back time, because

Time, time, where does the time go?
Time, time, when is it the right time?
Who knows what’ll happen next?
Who knows where the road will lead us? Tell me, where are you?

Time, time, what else will happen during this time
To me?

I prayed for a bit of luck
And cried for the times gone by
But there was one question
Which no one here was able to answer:
Can we live happily in peace? No

Time, time, where does the time go?
Time, time, when is it the right time?
Where will I be tomorrow?
In the end, will I be alone?
And where are you?

(Time, time, where does the time go?)
How quickly time goes by
(Time, time, when is it the right time?)
How quickly the wind turns

Who knows what’ll happen next?
Who knows where the road will lead us?
Tell me, where are you?

Time, time, even if the road is long
All I need is
Just a little time
