Smilers - Et sa teaks (English translation)

Estonian

Et sa teaks

pole paremat kohta kui on nüüd ja siin
ma õigemat aega vaevalt leiaksin
iga hetk on kordumatu
tähtedesse kirjutatud
need sõnad ütlema pean…et sa teaks
 
ei mata ma tundeid et need vaikselt kaoks
ei jäta neid sõnu ma homse jaoks
seisan siin ja kui tahad kordan
kasvõi sadatuhat korda
need sulle ütlema pean…et sa teaks
 
ma tean et maa…seisma jääda ei suuda
ma tean et kuul…on pimedam pool
ma tean et tuul…võib muuta suunda
aga minuga teised, hoopis teised on minuga lood
 
pole paremat kohta kui on nüüd ja siin
ma õigemat aega vaevalt leiaksin
keegi ju ei räägi sulle
mida homne päev toob tulles
need sõnad ütlema pean…et sa teaks
 
seisan siin ja kui tahad kordan
kasvõi sadatuhat korda
need sõnad ütlema pean…et sa teaks

So You'd Know

There is no better place than now and here
I'd hardly ever find a more fitting time
Each moment is unique
written in the stars
I have to say these words, so you'd know
 
I won't bury my feelings so they'd disappear silently
and I won't leave these words to tomorrow
I stand here and if you want it, I'll repeat
them even for 100 000 times
I have to tell them to you, so you'd know
 
I know that the earth cannot stop
I know that the moon has a darker side
I know that the wind can change its course
but it's different, totally different when it comes to me
 
There is no better place than now and here
I'd hardly ever find a more fitting time
No one would ever tell you
what tomorrow will bring when it comes
I have to say these words, so you'd know
 
I stand here and if you want it, I'll repeat
them even for 100 000 times
I have to tell them to you, so you'd know

The same goes for reusing parts of my translations in your own (parallel) translations. Id est: it is forbidden. (If a translation is IYO slightly wrong, I'd be glad if commented or PMed.)
If you want to translate my translation into a third language or use it as a basis, you are welcome. Especially if you do it on this website. Just be so kind and mention it and me. :) You can also notify me (in addition, it would make me recheck my work and maybe find errors that you wouldn't copy then) but you don't have to.

Most of my translations are works in progress. One never knows when a revelation can strike. One word: recheck.
