so that it may grow and I may relish it

Mes'afti ti varka

Μες σ' αυτή τη βάρκα είμαι μοναχή
κι έχω συντροφιά μου κάτασπρο πουλί
I throw a sign at the seashore, but then how do I say it to you
you are a distant star, at night time I kiss you
Θέλω να φυτέψω πεύκο λυγερό
για να μεγαλώσει και να το χαρώ
