lyrics

1.
Apopse ela mou, isikhi, kali
To pothos pou to stithos mou to kaii svise mou
Phere mou esi, melina philia
Vithise esi tin xirasia stin kardia
*
Ki ela pio konta, m' isai makria
Na se vlepo, na se angixo, na s΄ aisthanomai
Kharise mou esi, nikhta mayiki
Kai to kharama san erthi, peta san pouli
2.
Ama erkhesai, metaxi phorese
Neraïda na mou yinis ΄si emena, koukla mou
Vale pano sou, kosmimata, kolies
Na mou isai omorphi kai na se khairome
3.
An den erkhesai, gramma stile mou
Na diavazo, skephtomai kai onirevomai
Grapse loyia esi, omorpha, apla
Na me angaliazoun, na glikainoun tin kardia

1.
Απόψε έλα μου, ήσυχη, καλή
Το πόθος που το στήθος μου το καίει σβήσε μου
Φέρε μου εσύ, μέλινα φιλιά
Βύθισε εσύ την ξηρασία στην καρδιά
*
Κι έλα πιο κοντά, μ' είσαι μακριά
Να σε βλέπω, να σε αγγίξω, να σ΄ αισθάνομαι
Χάρισε μου εσύ, νύχτα μαγική
Και το χάραμα σαν έρθει, πέτα σαν πουλί
2.
Άμα έρχεσαι, μετάξι φόρεσε
Νεράιδα να μου γίνεις ΄συ εμένα, κούκλα μου
Βάλε πάνω σου, κοσμήματα, κολιές
Να μου είσαι όμορφη και να σε χαίρομε
3.
Αν δεν έρχεσαι, γράμμα στύλε μου
Να διαβάζω, σκέφτομαι και ονειρεύομαι
Γράψε λόγια εσύ, όμορφα, απλά
Να με αγκαλιάζουν, να γλυκαίνουν την καρδιά

1. Come to me tonight, bring with you your peace
The yearning in my breast that whispers, ease that pain in me
Bring to me as well, honeyed kisses, love
Douse the drought that's in the joyless desert of my soul

*
Come here near to me, don't stand far away
So I could see you, I could touch you, I could feel your breath
Please bestow to me, moments full of warmth
And as the dawn comes, as a bird, you fly away from me

2. If you come this night, wrap yourself in silk
So, you will be as a sylphid, as a nymph to me
And attire yourself, put a necklace on,
So, you'll be as pretty as a goddess, ravishing

3. If you do not come, send a letter please
So I will read it, and I'll think of you, my dear one
And please write to me, words of grace and joy
So they hug me, cherish me and ease my heart tonight
