Lyrics

Kryvw apo olous tin alitheia
Pws exeis fygei ki eisai makria
Pws ypokrinomai den kseroun
Kai pws me pnigei h monaksia

Pws tromazw pou logariazw
Th zwh mou apo twra kai mpros
Poso arga kai poso pikra tha pernaei o kairos

Mes sti vrohi mou eipes feugw
Kai apo tote exei synnefia
Oles oi meres einai gkrizes
Ki oles oi nyxtes erhmia

Pws pothw mia mera me hlio
Pws pothw mia mera me fws
Na fwtisei o kosmos, na lampsei, na ginei chrysos

Kathe mou dakry na stegnwsei
Na hmerepsei o kahmos

Pws dipsw gia ena sou chadi
Pws dipsw gia ena fili
Na gyriseis pisw na kanoume nea arhi

Pws dipsw gia ena sou chadi
Pws dipsw gia ena fili
Na gyriseis pisw na kanoume nea arhi

Oi dyo mazi

English translation

I hide the truth from everyone
That you have gone and you're away
They don't know that I'm pretending
And that I'm shrouded in loneliness

I get frightened at the thought
Of my life from now on
How slowly and bitterly time will pass

In the rain you told me you're leaving
And it has been cloudy since then
Every day the sky is grey
And every night there's loneliness

How I wish for a sunny day
How I wish for a day with light
For the world to get bright and full of light, to become gold

Every tear will go away
And I won't be unhappy anympre

How I want to feel your touch
How I want a kiss from you
For you to return, so we can make a new start

How I want to feel your touch
How I want a kiss from you
For you to return, so we can make a new start

The two of us
