Liis Lemsalu - Sinu ees (English translation)

English translation

In Front of You

Like dissolved sugar,
you twirl in my cup
 
These endings are so-so bitter,
I grab you along with me
 
And if tomorrow is more clear,
all our hills are left behind
 
For a moment I spin in heights
 
With the warm wind, you chase/catch me now
and I'm standing in front of you again
Today there is no limit, momentum takes us along
and so you're standing in front of me again
I'm like Alice today in wonderland
I go,
I go,
I go.
I'm like Alice today in wonderland
I go,
I go,
I go.
 
Your steps at my heels,
nightly butterflies1 are rising again.
 
In the warm silence, I stop motionless,
I take you along with me
 
And if tomorrow is more clear,
all our hills are left behind
 
For a moment I spin in heights
 
With the warm wind, you chase/catch me now
and I'm standing in front of you again
Today there is no limit, momentum takes us along
and so you're standing in front of me again
I'm like Alice today in wonderland
I go,
I go,
I go.
I'm like Alice today in wonderland
I go,
I go,
I go.

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.
