09 - Tiny little fantasy

music by Jannis Zotos
lyrics by Mikis Theodorakis


You came like a breeze and laid paradise
on our lips with a kiss.
Then you passed us
and ecstatically we saw you merge
with the everlasting and eternal light.

Now there is nothing left
that reminds of you passing by.

It was our kissed lips becoming hawks
that sighingly took wing for every gleam.
Perhaps it is you and your kiss

(Athens, 1943)

The trees that held us apart became rooms
the flowers became people
the earth and the apes
became offices, paperwork and castles,

chaos replenished chaos

(Sun & Time, 1967)
