Are these three lines from "Lieder" references to songs, too?

  • In the song Lieder, Adel Tawil references in almost each line a (usually popular) song.

    The German Wikipedia article about this song lists the references in a table. However, three lines are missing a reference:

    • from the refrain:

      Und ich singe diese Lieder,

    • from the third strophe:

      Ich sang nur noch für mich,

      für ’ne unendlich lange Zeit.

    Are these references, too?

  • I don't think these are quotes from songs. The first quote just means "And I am singing these songs." The second quote is a reference to the time between the end of his boy band The Boyz and the founding of Ich+Ich with Annette Humpe. It translates to:

    I only sang for myself
    for an infinitely long time

    Then it continues "und dann traf ich auf sie", that is "and then I met her" meaning Annette. It then continues with lines taken from Ich+Ich songs.
