song for Elena

a word that follows me everywhere,
and asks me for answers morning and night -“why”
I don’t want it anymore, I’m sick of it

carols and triangles…
every Christmas I remember a child
plunged in anger, in a huge “why”
whisper and scream, a wound that is bleeding
every moment of my life – a great “why”

two or three dreams that remained
have been in pawn, and we are left broke
the usurer will send us to jail
Eleni, you have taken all of us on your back

carols and triangles…
every Christmas I remember a child
plunged in anger, in a huge “why”
whisper and scream, a wound that is bleeding
every moment of my life – a great “why”

Edit later: versurile apartin unui cantec grecesc, in interpretarea lui Giorgos Dalaras si Goran Bregovic
