How Darkness Came to My Room (Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa)

Estonian

Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa

Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa?
Tuli vaikselt, tuli tasa
Sulges tuled, kardinad ja akna
Keeras linnulaulu maha
 
Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa?
Tuli vaikselt, tuli tasa
Taevatähtedelt sai pintsli
Tõmbas varjud seintele ja maha
 
Keda kutsus pimedus mu tuppa?
Kelle võttis kaasa täna?
Kutsus nukruse ja surma
Uni vabandas, läks ära
 
Nii jäi linn mu akna taga tasa
Mõni üksik heli eilsest
oli eksind pimeduses ära
Ja ei rahunenud maha
 
Kingaklõbin, kummisahin
Üksik hüüe, mõni jutt
Ukse pauk ja naeru kahin
Vaikne karjatus ja nutt
 
Keda kutsus pimedus mu tuppa?
Kelle võttis kaasa täna?
Kutsus nukruse ja surma
Uni vabandas, läks ära
 
Kuidas tuli pimedus mu tuppa?

Kutsus nukruse ja surma

Keda kutsus pimedus mu tuppa?
Kelle võttis kaasa täna?
Kutsus nukruse ja surma
Uni vabandas, läks ära

How Darkness Came to My Room

How did darkness come to my room?
It came quietly, came silently.
It closed the lights, curtains and a window,
turned the birdsong down.
 
How did darkness come to my room?
It came quietly, came silently.
If got a paintbrush from the stars,
drew the shadows onto the walls and floor.
 
Whom did darkness invite to my room?
Whom did it take along today?
It invited sadness and death,
sleep apologised and left.
 
That's how the town got silent behind my window
Some single sound from yesterday
had wandered astray to my room
and wouldn't calm down.
 
Shoe-clacks, tyre's susurrus,
a lonely shout, some talks,
door-bang and laughter's swish,
a quiet scream and cry.
 
Whom did darkness invite to my room?
Whom did it take along today?
It invited sadness and death,
sleep apologised and left.
