07 - Me and her

music by Jannis Zotos
lyrics by Mikis Theodorakis


back

When the evening comes and chases the day away
I want to come to you with my dream.
Glancing downwards I will take your hand.
With my mouth shut I will say to you: "I love you".

Dreams, dreams, oh, it's only dreams.
My dream, my life passed by
and along came day's night.

Step by step we will walk in the park together,
holding each other tight, looking up at the stars
with hands conjoint we silently listen
to the ode of life and to the night
with the same melody, with the primordial melody.

Dreams, dreams...

(Tripolis, 1942)
